  1. WAYWT (denim version) 2017

    funny, i didn't realize till i was developing these yesterday that my friend is in an entirely sufu-worthy getup (both gifts/"borrowed" from me over the years) so perhaps this is more to share their outfit than my own mountain-slob attire out of fear of losing status among you all i haven't posted a photo since shaving my head. luckily the hat gives little away; pretend i still have a mullet if it helps. left: stevenson (great jacket dont remember # tho) sda 001 some sort of birkenstock thing right: visvim tenderloin tcb (type ii, barely visible) sugar cane doek
  2. Denim Repair

    yea, i would turn em inside out for both. should be pretty straightforward if you can follow the existing stitching, particularly on the pocket. for the outseam i would fold the two selvedge edges together and then run a straight stitch down the leg where the seam tore. for the pocket i would straight stitch the inside seam first, from the bottom up, using the rivet as a placeholder (no need for pins i think). [as an aside, interesting that the rivet is so far below the pocket's top edge!]

    @shortchorts not necessarily denim-related, mostly documenting my tattoos and embroidery projects, but i occasionally have some denim repair pics up
  4. Tender Co. Denim

    That's the 128—straight leg from the thigh down, matching square front and back pockets, relatively low (but probably mid) rise. I've stopped wearing them in favour of the 129s, mostly because the rise is a bit higher and I like the cut of the legs more (slightly looser thighs, slimmer leg opening). If you ever want to try out either pair let me know!
  5. What are your jeans doing today?

    some photos from lake o'hara and the kootenays -- still working on clearing up the lens on this camera, so apologize for the blurriness: thanks for looking!

    and seems like they're all sold out now
  7. Im new here

    hi welcome, nice to meet you! that shabazz palaces album is great. elaborate on the fashion you like a lil bit! i think most folks here like fashion but mostly different sorts/for different reasons. if you'd like i can start. i really like clothes that are made slowly, sewn by hand or on old machines that require a lot of care, shuttle-loomed and naturally dyed fabrics, and interesting takes on historical fashion trends—some examples being tender co. and kapital (especially their kountry line). am also really interested in some 'high' fashion like undercover, junya, YSL, but those designs are so far from my current wardrobe / persona that i'm not sure i could go beyond appreciating them from a distance. i do some chainstitch embroidery and clothing repair and sometimes dream of trying to work in fashion more consistently, but don't find designing an entire garment a natural or particularly enjoyable process. anyway, since i see you're a designer yourself, i'd be interested to know how you developed your style and what you draw from, and how you differentiate your approach from other designers out there (or not). cheers -ian

    wow beautiful! I'm driving up to Lake Louise through Nelson this weekend and am really excited to see this sort of landscape -- never been out there before. Thanks for sharing all these photos!
  9. Sugar Cane Denim

    two sugar canes: 470 and 40601. about two months of wear and five washes vs. maybe a year of wear and i dunno loads of washes... due for one right now too.
  10. @garden gnomes in space Nah I thought the pockets were great! Probably my favourite back pockets ever actually, or maybe tied with tender -- so spacious without looking or feeling oversized or baggy. Check page 2 of the Stevenson thread, there's a pair of 767s there that show how the pockets stretch out... amazing. I wonder if the low-slung look might be due to how they were worn in photos you've seen--never thought or experienced that personally.
  11. Full Count Denim Thread

    Outside of reversing entropy, I fear you're out of luck they unravel naturally and at will.
  12. ^Tbh for me, as great as that cut looks, i wouldn't get it because it's only been released since SOC's rebrand, which really made them fall off the radar for me. Prior to 2016 or whenever the change happened, SOC's detailing was amazing—the old patches were *so* cool, their greencast denim was totally in a class of its own, and the back pocket design was distinctive enough to set it apart from other brands imo. On the other hand, the new pocket stitching and belt loops look sort of contrived, not to mention that their new denim looks way more irregular and less vintage-y than the lovely denim the old models came with.
  13. The cuts I've owned (727, 747, 767) have all been a bit weird for their own reasons. 727 is very slim; my thighs outgrew them which has never happened on any other pair of jeans I've had, besides maybe my jeans from baby gap. 767 was very loose in the seat for me, sometimes that's okay but for some reason it looked quite bad on this pair. 747 was great except the rise felt like it should have been higher for the rest of the cut. I've never owned a pair of 737 but it seems like the best/most well-rounded straight cut out of all of those, judging by measurements... that'd be my recommendation.

    Damn you really did a number on those! Sorry you've gotta downgrade them for the time being—they look great. I'd love to see em and maybe help with repairs once I move back to BC in a couple weeks!

    oh my gosh, exactly what i was hoping for! (a new big bro, though i guess the keything is cool too )
