    ^ Thanks Flash, saw that. I'm a 38, but not in a hurry.

    ^ It's a great denim, no doubt. Love the '46 first half and may have to try the WW2 at some point.

    ^ Flash, is this the same denim as on the 1946 first half?

    FurnitureMaker, the jacket looks fine, from what we can see. How is the fit elsewhere? Did yours come one-wash or raw?

    ^ I made the same trip in 1981. The road from Marfa to Van Horn in Texas is the straightest, loneliest road I've ever been on. The so-called 'Marfa Lights' were also interesting -- not sure if those lights on the horizon are still there. We also went down into Big Bend National Park and crossed the Rio Grande by small boat, then rode a couple of old horses (for $1 each) to Boquillas, Mexico for tacos and beer. Memorable trip.

    Both are good, but I say go for the hem. At the risk of confirming my old fart, curmudgeonly, non-cool status, does anyone hem jeans so they don't wear through at the cuff line? Sacrilegious question, no doubt.

    ^ Agree with all you’ve said. In my experience, tagged 34 length measures 34” raw, so will shrink down to 31 or 32, which is a bit short for me too (6’). I prefer 36 length but it seems hard to find. Of course the Cone versions are all hard to find ;-)

    Loving that Sharkhunter aho -- mine says hello. And that black & white shoreline pic breakingfad -- reminds me of prints by Michael Kenna.

    Same, I could use another inch in the chest, but I suspect it will loosen up with time. Was yours one-wash too?

    Interesting Broark -- not especially large for a 46. I haven't measured my one-wash 44, but it's trimmer than the 50s in the same size. Wish I had gone raw on the 40s, but it's still very nice.

    Quick question regarding the 40s jacket. Are the two sharp prongs on the buckle supposed to go through the denim (i.e., pierce it) or just hold the straps in place?

    ^ Tiro, the shirt is a Heracles from The Rite Stuff ... the shoes are Weston Golfs ... and the haircut is handheld using an Oster 76 ;-)

    These are size 36. My 50s were 34 and a bit tight, so I sized up and am happy.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    ^ I have the same shoe -- incredibly comfortable and, yes, they will give and stretch.

    I have 40s and 50s jackets in size 44. Love em both -- the 40s is shorter but also a little smaller/trimmer everywhere. I'm wondering if this is by design or because the 40s came one-wash (TCB cold wash and machine dry) while the 50s came raw and has only had a warm soak.
