    WAYWT 2021 [denim edition]

    @julian-wolf from now on you have to preface every WAYWT post with: HAIR / BEARD /

    @Cold Summer DO NOT SIP IT!!! I made this mistake on a pair, and the thread will keep unraveling and over time develop into a hole. Instead, turn the jeans inside out, get a blunt needle, and push/pull the nub through to the inside.

    Samurai Jeans

    Every denim shrinks different amounts, and may continue to shrink more. Two options: wash them in a washer, hot water, inside, prior to hemming; or, get them hemmed 1/2" - 3/4" longer than needed to allow for extra shrinkage when washed again. This is what I do, so roping starts to appear when I wash them after hemming. I'd rather too long than too short.

    Oh DAMMIT!!! Thankfully that's not my size, even as snug as I wear my garb.

    @kiya The sizing on the new shirts are very different between models. Any insight as to why? I assume order according to size charts, and not actual size label?

    @fre-co What maker are those? Stock size, or custom?

    +1 to the indigo linen shirt. TFH westerns' fit is perfect for me, and personally I hope they measurements stay similar. The arms could be bigger tho.

    @machine-language check out TFH thread. That's where a couple others and myself posted about the RFR-004.

    It's a great pair, possibly one of the best ever. I recently copped a pair too, but haven't worn them yet. I've washed them and need to get them hemmed.

    @lee porter @kiya For me, the IH-633-XHS is on of the greatest cuts ever, and by far IH best model. Well done Kiya!

    Sad day indeed. I'm really sad to see him get out, but I get it. We knew this day would come. I have three pairs of his jeans: RT1002 that I've worn a bit, which are a little too tight now; Indigo Lover's in Black Seed, and the last batch of RT's in XX Barn Denim - both with tags and unwashed. Not sure if I'll wash and wear them, or keep them for collection nostalgia. Prolly will never sell. Now I wish I held on to that last pair of LeRoy's I sold that were too small, I could have gotten a lot more for them now...
