    This sponsored/suggested post turned up on my Facebook feed today and I though anyone who has been following the TCB and Ranchman threads would get a kick out of who get the credit in this headline.
  2. I have the second Gitman pinup shirt and I get a lot of complements about it. It's a good print for a hot day outdoors. I would never wear the first one though. What is truly in bad taste is how many shirts Gitman Vintage puts out that they describe as "Oriental".

    You learn something every day. Here's one curtesy of my Sugar Cane 66 which was machine dried every time.
  4. I saw this chainstitched jacket on Instagram a while back, and, as long as you are a fan of X (the band), I don't think anyone is ever going to top this design.
  5. Yeah I live in New Orleans where the heat and humidity isn't quite in South East Asian levels but worse than the majority of America. I have a few banner denim pieces (1105, 1001, 2002x) and I find them to be warmer than some of the Sugar Cane denim I have ('09, '66). You can make it work, but I find myself washing more often once the summer hits (which is basically now). If you want some warm weather Warehouse check out the cotton/linen models. Side note... I really don't know how the guys in Indonesia and Thailand do it. I've been told the worst New Orleans day is just a regular day there, and the worse day here is pretty insufferable. Their fades are pretty extreme, but from my experience with denim and humidity those guys must have some really disgusting pairs of jeans.
  6. Here's my lot 64Ranch Blouse to close out jacket season before it goes into the closet for until October. I've had this for 3 years now, and it was my main jacket until I purchased the Warehouse 2002 last fall. Edited ever so slightly to adjust the white balance and bring out some of the greencast of the 66 denim. Edit: these images got compressed and lost some detail, so here's a full size imgur album
  7. The high water look can be cool with the right sneaker or a really nice hem, but the trend of guys cuffing their jeans (usually a slim cut and pinrolled) so high that they can show off their entire boot and a few inches of sock never, ever looks cool. Scroll through a couple of the Red Wing tags or popular raw denim accounts on Instagram if you aren't familiar with the look.
  8. Mister Freedom Ranger Shirt Warehouse x Hinoya 1001 Oak St. Mocs Louisiana swamps
  9. Buzz Rickson chambray, Whitesville tee, Warehouse 1105, New Balance MiUSA 1978s.
  10. File this under iconic photos that happen to include denim. I was on instagram the other day and saw some published and unpublished photos from a LIFE magazine story on the aftermath of the Watts Riots in California. These photos are from 1966 and include some fits so clean the Japanese would be envious.
  11. 1105 washed and dried for the 2nd time (not including the factory wash). 70 wear days
  12. My size 42 2002xx measures 22.25in / 56cm pit to pit and and 26.5 in / 68 cm from the top of the collar to the bottom. Here's a fit from a few months ago worn with the C/L 800s
  13. I also got a pair a few months ago. I really hope Warehouse keeps this fit their rotation because I think it's one of the better straight/tapered jeans to hit the market recently. If these had hidden rivets and a button fly I don't think I would need any other jeans. Here's my 1105s with about 45 days of wear.
  14. More Duck Digger products have hit the Warehouse site including a new jacket made with the banner denim and 1943 and 45 models made with the 14.5oz denim. http://info.ware-house.co.jp/newitem/dd2/
  15. I actually did the same thing. The BiG holiday discount was burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to pick up the Kaigai 800s and keep my cotton/linen 800s as summer jeans. My 1105s and c/l 800s are both size 34, but I sized up to 36 to get a better fit in the top block. The c/l version is 800 is also cut a little larger in the same size, which is why I can wear a 34. I washed and air dried them twice and the fit works for me. I'll try to get a fit pic up soon.
