    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Speaking of Denimio, they did an AMA over on reddit in which they lie about how they actually do business and reddit eats it up

    Warehouse

    Keep in mind that if you’re on the Warehouse website you are looking at the measurements for one wash 800s and unwashed 1000s. I find the opposite to be true and the 800s are the ones you may need to size up on. But... I can’t really comment on this latest run of 1000s because they appear to be smaller in the waist than previous years. I own both the 800s and 1000s from previous years and the 1000s are the more generous cut. The banner denim also stretches much more than the 14.5oz denim. I would buy your usual waist size but keep in mind that this run looks to be about 1.5in/4cm smaller in the waist.

    New Contest Suggestions

    The jeans are probably sold out and the jacket is a pre-order, but I’d be interested to see if this denim shows up in the spring catalog that gets released at the beginning of January.

    New Contest Suggestions

    This thread has mentioned Warehouse and 40s cuts too many times for me not to point out that Warehouse has a new denim that they have used on a pair of Duck Digger WWII jeans and jacket. I haven’t seen any faded examples of this new denim but a contest could be a great way to make that happen.

    SugarCane 1990's M-Series Archive

    Without releasing it I purchased an M series blanket lined storm riders jacket from yahoo auctions earlier this year.

    Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    Is Self Edge getting any Sugar Cane work shirts and flannels this season? I'm looking to get that brushed houndstooth flannel in blue/white and I would like to go through a US store before rakuten.

    The most remarkable part of that photo is he managed to get a finished pair of WH Ranch jeans.

    Warehouse

    My 34 800s that I bought a year ago measure about 88cm after some wear. I can wear them comfortably, and I generally buy jeans that are 90cm before shrinking. The newer models come with the 32in/81cm inseam.

    Tanuki Japan

    Someone is going to order these online and not be able to fit their feet through the hem. It’s happened a few times over on the raw denim reddit when people taper their jeans so much they don’t account for their feet getting in the jeans.

    Warehouse

    I’m 6 feet tall and I don’t find it boxy at all. The bottom button of the shirt hits right where at the top button my my jeans. I have other shirts like the TCB ranchman or Buzz Rickson chambray that are shorter in the body (though purchased at a smaller size). The Junky Style blog has some good fits on guys of different heights. http://blog-jkstyle.jugem.jp/?eid=2849

    Warehouse

    The measurements on the Warehouse website are pretty spot on. Pit to pit: 22.5in / 57cm Shoulders: 17.7 in / 45cm Sleeve: 25.5 in / 65cm Length from the bottom of the collar: 28.5in / 72 cm I’m not sure about the weight of the fabric. It’s a little thicker than my Flat Head and LVC flannels. The brushed insides makes it a pretty beefy fabric.

    Warehouse

    I got the 42/XL which fits more like a large in any western sizing. I also have the Warehouse 2002 in 42 and both of these fit me perfectly. I think it would likely be too small for you to button.

    Warehouse

    This would be my first non-denim Warehouse buy. Lot 3104 D pattern flannel once washed version. If anyone has considered buying a Warehouse flannel I can now highly recommend it. The fit, color, and quality of fabric is all excellent. It’s brushed on the inside and very soft. I tried to capture the texture in the second photo.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    There’s some really nice stuff in this year’s catalog https://bookshelf.wisebook4.jp/html/toyoenterprise/32546/ I really like the fabrics in the Hawaiian workwear line and I hope they continue to build this line out in the future. That palaka check western shirt is awesome.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I have this Sugar Cane work shirt with different chest pockets. I don’t mind two pocket styles, but it sets off a very mild level of OCD whenever I notice that the buttons on the pockets don’t line up horizontally.
