    ^Maynard, yes I sold them them a couple months ago. Too bad, I would have liked them to go to a fellow Sufu memeber.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    @kiya Any light you could shed on the Hawaii model containing sugar cane fibers actually from Hawaii?

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Okay all, so the reason I brought this up- I was just in Maui and saw the depleted sugar cane plantations and read about the last production in 2016. It got me thinking about the Hawaii model in particular. So nothing definitive on whether current models actually contain bagasse from Hawaii - or perhaps it may come from a smaller operation than the commercial outfits? As a side note - I wore no denim the entire time because it was so very hot and humid haha.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Does anyone know if the Hawaii is still made with sugarcane fiber actually from Hawaii? I thought I had read somewhere awhile back that Hawaii and Okinawa models were made with sugar cane from their respective regions, but that could have just been some misinformation or something. Just wondering because I read that Hawaii stopped sugar cane production in the last few years

    A couple weeks ago I won an auction for these and they finally showed up today. One of the last arcs and tab kakishibu lot 285. Pretty much like new condition

    Edit: was able to find chicote’s response to my question toward measurements:

    If I remember correctly they measured 16” raw. I remember putting a hanger in the waist to keep them from shrinking too much. After that I just washed normal and they definitely shrunk a tad below tag size. They probably measure about 15.5” after a wash.

    I have a pair in 31 that I’ve been wearing on and off for a few years. Theyve held up well for me. No real evo to speak of on my pair though. It’s crazy that they still have a pair. I think I bought mine in 2015, and it was one of the last sizes then.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    ^Those look one washed, based on the wrinkling of the leather patch, as well as the denim in general, and the puckering in-between the stitching. If they are in fact one wash, you won’t get much more if any shrinkage at all. Take measurements before and give them a hot soak with some mild hand agitation and compare.

    The Flat Head

    Glad I stashed a pair of 1105 a couple years ago. Gonna miss flat head buttons and rivets most of all I think.

    For my fellow USA residents, what’s the longest you’ve even had an item held up in customs? I have a pair of canes that have been In Los Angeles customs for about 6 days now. In the past it’s usually only taken 2-3 days. Unless the tracking has a delay in being updated, which I’ve seen before too.

    I’ve never pulled the trigger, but someone mentioned Workers on here awhile back and they’ve been on my radar ever since. Looks like good stuff.

    I was under the impression that 3sixteen’s stitching was strictly poly. Has there been indication that it’s a blend?

    I seem to always get more mileage out of cotton thread in looser cuts. IMO it’s not very practical to use weak cotton thread on modern skinny fits.
