    Evisu is still loved!

    I have very limited knowledge about Evisu but I found a pretty remarkable faded pair of what appears to be No 1 Specials while looking for old 501s on Etsy

    TCB

    Re: TCB Wool... I watched one of the TCB lives recently and Inoue said that (paraphrasing here because this was few weeks ago) he expects the Japanese mill TCB sources their wool from to close in the next 5-ish years and that wool itself is a dying industry in Japan. He said this because I asked if TCB had any plans for a Storm Riders style jacket (since they already do Lee styles) and he said TCB can't really count on his mill being around long enough to develop a new product around.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I like what I’ve seen from Brick + Mortar Seattle and they have one of the better websites out of the major Alden retailers. I went down the Alden rabbit hole about a year ago and got some Indys in natural CXL after reading that they wouldn’t be using that leather anymore. I really want to pick up some Alden’s in the Earth Reverse Chamois leather some day soon.

    Superdenim community sale thread

    I’ve got a pair of 34W LVCs 1915 Cone Anniversary 501s that I’m selling for $175 plus shipping. They have been washed once (initial shrink) and worn once. Beware, these jeans have hilariously small front pocket bags. Otherwise, they are awesome jeans and I don’t want to keep any jeans I don’t plan on wearing. Waist: 35” Thigh: 12.5” Hem: 8.75” Length: 32.5” Im not officially listing them but I also have some BNWT Cone 1966 501s from LVC that I would let go for a generous offer. I’m not 100% the waist will ever work for me, but I’m holding out hoping and keeping them raw until then.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    https://blogs.chapman.edu/huell-howser-archives/1994/12/10/california-companies-californias-gold-503/ Someone posted this program from 1994 on reddit the other day where the host visits the Valencia Street factory. Would this be the early day of what eventually becomes Levi's Vintage Clothing as domestic production of the standard STF 501 stopped around 93-94? What's disappointing though, is that the seamstress interviewed describes being paid in "piece work" which is the popular garment industry technique of paying workers on a per-piece basis, which many factories use to subvert minimum wage law. You'd think a clothing brand that's been well established for 100+ years and sells the world's most popular piece of clothing could at least guarantee their workers a standard wage.

    Warehouse

    Here’s a old photo of my C/L 800s for comparison. It’s one of the most textured denim I’ve seen come out of Warehouse recently and I don’t think these are the same denim. I really wish they would bring this denim back because I would love to have a lightweight Type I.

    If the translation is right the IG post says the 1901 yet another new denim with natural indigo whereas the 1915 uses the same denim as the 1001XX DSB.

    The S/S catalogue should be out tomorrow. Bears teased that 1001Z and the Warehouse Instagram posted a 1901 and 1915 today. It's been a good year for anyone waiting on some new Warehouse denims and models.

    Nice. I follow the shop Acorn Vintage in Osaka on IG and I noticed they got a vintage version of the denim N-3 from the F/W catalogue. Warehouse - Original -

    Hinoya's website and service is pretty incredible. It's only slightly more than 48 hours after posting I've got the jeans. Gone are the days of waiting 48 hours just to complete the Rakuten transaction.

    FYI- 1000XX Dead Stock Blues have been restocked at Hinoya in all but the largest and smallest sizes.

    WAYWT 2020 (Denim Edition)

    Thanks. I picked it up off of Yahoo Auctions last year for $65 because I wanted a Storm Rider or 101-J style jacket. This is in excellent condition and I had no idea it was M-Series when I bought it.

    For anyone wondering both Self Edge and Standard and Strange should be getting the DSBs next month. I’ve been working my way through the 1101s for the last year and I haven’t worn these much. 1001XX Hinoya version coming up on 3 years of rotational wear.
