    Anyone planning on attending the standard and strange Santa Fe party next Saturday? Would be nice to meet some of you folks.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    @Maynard Friedman I’ve specifically been looking at one of the newer buzz sweats in oatmeal, but I remember you mentioning a few years back that they were quite boxy and that you favored deluxewear, yeah? Measurements would be much appreciated. @julian-wolf yes please, if you could measure.

    Anybody know any loopwheel sweats that are cut a bit longer, ie a Japanese size L that is closer to 27” length after washing/drying?

    Tanuki Japan

    Sorry if this has been answered; Jay from blue owl told me it’s Oni. Totally makes since given all the secret master stuff etc, and the collabs.

    I have a pair of these as well, they’re great! Mine are on ice until I get through some other black pairs. I found they fit slightly fuller (and better, for me) than the indigo pair of 107’s I had. I had the same thing happen with my sugarcane indigo 2014 vs black pair 2014 in the same size. Indigo pair in one wash was smaller all-around, black pair slightly fuller. Makes me think there’s something about sulfur dyed denim that makes it shrink less; the patterns are clearly the same during factory cutting.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    To me, the first sign was when full count started to adopt all these bold print logo’s and slap them on everything. It’s hard to encapsulate exactly what I’m talking about here, but they really pushed hard into logos and branding a few years ago. Then they started to really experiment with avant-garde stylings. I’m not talking about just different fits, but like boa mufflers and weird shit(for the brand) like that. They remodeled their headquarters to look like some trendy American brewery, with succulents at every juncture. A repro brand that has remained (largely) unchanged over the years suddenly experimenting so outside of their scope, the arrival of peak selvedge and #workwear and the collapse of the two, and then the brand changing its mainline fits and styling all kind of fits the narrative. That’s my take, although they may be actually doing great. Unlike others, FC may come out unscathed because of their willingness to adapt. I’m seeing the same thing happen with some ex-rakuten shops like boropy and reggishop. They are increasing the number of crap they carry from nanamica (you know things are changing when fucking teva sandals are trendy!) etc, and slowly the selection they once had of warehouse, SC, buzz etc is dwindling. Hell, even self edge has been bringing in weird stuff from monitaly and human made which has me wondering. So maybe just a sign of the times.

    I hate to speculate in this direction, but fullcount has had such a series of shakeups in terms of their direction, it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re the next to go under.

    The Flat Head

    I will get up some fit pics later this evening. Honestly this seems like the exact pair of jeans I was hoping for back when Ed was trying organize a TFHxRJB signet collab.

    The Flat Head

    With the recent TFH developments, I thought now might be the time to move on a pair before they may or may not become nonexistent. Since I’ve had some hit or miss with mainline flat head fits, the measurements on the one-wash R&H x TFH x RJB 004 looked great, so I pulled the trigger. This is not your normal “relaxed tapered” or high tapered. It is a fuller cut with a very versatile 7.8” hem, size 33 and hemmed to 31” length. The one wash measurements are as follows and I gotta say, R&H were spot on with their size chart: waist 16.5”, front rise 11”, back rise 15” thigh 13”, knee 13” down 9”, hem @31” length = 7.8” Double stitching is mostly lined up Flathead iron top button, and RJB lower buttons which I believe are also iron they feel different than the older RJB zinc buttons Flathead iron button backs RJB classic two tone interior chainstitching Flathead copper rivets Raised belt loops Indigo arcs which seem like cotton thread vs FH traditional poly. Time will tell, they could also be poly Pocket bags seem about as thick as normal from TFH or RJB. Although I have a pair of 1015 in the exceed denim which have thicker pocket bag material. Pocket openings are also very usable! The shape seems to have been cut a litter bigger than even 3005, and the top block has been designed to hug the hips a little less in order to access the pockets. Youve all seen this denim for a minute, so I won’t go really into that, but it’s pretty insane 14oz left hand twill.

    It was essentially just what is known, buckle back pair. Although I didn’t ask what the cut was like, denim etc.

    @Broark I was in the Santa Fe shop the other day and Gus said that the new model is called the Sante Fe and will be releasing the evening of the opening party, 10/26. He didn’t exactly say it would be a Santa Fe exclusive though.

    Brand new. Rado did a reinterpretation of the classic captain cook in 37mm(aged lume etc)last year, and this year introduced a 42mm in several variations. This is the latter in blue dial on rado’s beads of rice bracelet. Yes the anchor swivels
