    Samurai Jeans

    I prefer snaps over buttons, too. But the colors, patterns and texture just won over many details I'd never even consider in a shirt.

    Samurai Jeans

    @julian-wolf - this is the first and only (sa far) Samurai shirt I own. OD told me they re-ran this shirt for this season as a limited run. I guess it was 2 years ago that I saw this shirt, I thought it was longer.

    Samurai Jeans

    Samurai SIN18-01 Indigo Rope Dyed flannel, size XL. One wash. Impulse cop f/ OD. I saw this shirt a few years ago, and it was sold out in my size. I had always been intrigued by the colors, and don't own any Samurai shirts, so when I saw it on OD I caved. It's slim fit work shirt cut and is a little snug in the shoulders and chest. Otherwise a good fit overall. The asym pockets make my OCD twitch in the left side of my neck go up to 11, and there's a collar tab which I don't care for. But none of that matters... The fabric and the color!!! OMG!!! Pics don't do the colors justice. I'm nearly speechless. The contrast of the deep dark almost black indigo against the electric blue, how they're woven together, highlighted by cream and orange stitch lines is amazing. The stitch highlights are different widths depending on the direction and color. The weave is dense and has a rough texture. Not brushed and soft. Very different from TFH flannels which are looser weave and softer. This feels more sturdy and durable, less likely/prone to threads picking. Double layer elbow patch integrated into the cuff. Triple stitched seams. Obligatory chain stitch run-off. The pattern matching is spot on.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    That's a nice looking jacket. The price isn't as steep as I was expecting.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I had a pair of Chippewa arctic boots that had GYW stitching like that. I sent pics to Kyle at Baker's and asked his opinion, and he said send them back. So I did, and found another pair that didn't have that issue.

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I'm selling my Roy R01 LeRoy from 2018, size 32, w/ cloth patch and... well, you know... Black seed denim. Soaked, washed twice, hot dryer, steam ironed. Fully shrunk. No fading, crocking, creasing, marbling at all. Unhemmed, has Roy's original chain stitch hem. They're a size too small for me. I've only tried them on and wore them around my home for a couple hours. DM to discuss. I'll sell them to whomever is most interested, not necessarily the first offer. Pics upon request. Measurements, raw / washed: waist, straight across: 16.5/33.0 / 15.5/31.0 - after wearing for a couple of hours there isn't a significant change in the waist, but it will stretch with consistent wear. wasit, aligned: 17.0/34.0 / 15.875/31.75 front rise: 13.0 / 12.25 back rise: 17.5 / 16.25 thigh @ crotch: 13.5 / 13 thigh 2" down: 12.875 / 12.375 knee 14" down: 9.625 / 9.125 hem: 8.875 / 8.5 inseam: 38.5 / 34.75

    I washed the 246 Kiwami's and have added the post-wash measurements to the original post above. Shrinkage was what I consider "typical", whatever that is The denim was VERY stiff and crunchy once dry. The color darkened a bit. I'm sending them to Railcar Fine Good for hemming, and I'll get some new pic pics once I get them back. This is a really nice pair of jeans and I'm looking forward to wearing them. I'd say this cut is between a slim cut a repro cut that is popular right now, so if you want a looser fit, size up. The 33 will be slim but not tight on me. Not sure how much they'll stretch yet, but waist should stretch back to original measurement.

    @DeafKate yeah, I agree. Most of Oni's stuff doesn't appealed to me that much, although I find them interesting. They've been pumping out so many different denims, in their high-rise loose tapered cut that I don't care for at all. This 246 Kiwami run has enough of what I'm looking for that I was willing to spit for them. I haven't washed these yet so I don't know how much they'll shrink. If/when I do I'll post measurements.
