  1. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Don't think I've seen anyone do a double riders deck jacket before, and the Google doesn't turn up anything; time to early adopt.
  2. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Just won an auction on this pair of S702XX, made in Japan in 1998. Not sure what denim it is; am posting their pictures because they're better than what I can do
  3. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Ace Western Belts is based out of Sendai, all business is done from there; they get the leather from the US, but they're a Japanese brand, so finishing is done there. Not sure where the buckles are made, but they do make the best repro of the '30s style souvenir buckle. The leather quality is good, but old-school; leather is thin but not flimsy. I actually prefer this thickness to overly thick belts.

    Paging Ace Western Belts! Bartleby, you're becoming a regular Tom Mix, don't stop.
  5. The Rite Stuff

    Fixed; they're both 100% cotton!
  6. The Rite Stuff

    An update on the wabash and hickory stripe scarves: I've lowered the price from $85 to $65. The reason being, the factory screwed up and misunderstood our directions, and accidentally cut off the selvedge line on the wabash scarves. This is the first time something this egregious has happened to John Lofgren. I've decided to go ahead with these, because otherwise they would be a waste, and because to remake them would mean waiting until Jan. 2018 as we bought up the last of this fabric, so the mill would have to make more and then it would have to go into the queue with sewing. If you're looking for a stocking stuffer for Christmas : https://the-rite-stuff.com/products/pre-order-for-nov-2017-the-rite-stuff-wabash-scarf

    And just like that, sales at Acme soared.

    Which is why Levi's ended up getting rid of them. They do look cool though. Pretty sure @mikecch just hand hammered the exposed rivets on his pair of Roys.

    Putin it on thick now.

    Yep, the tour pair was very sweatpantish Great for warmer weather.
  11. The only thing I've ever gotten from the Hill Side was a pair of green, selvedge chinos about 4 years back, but it was made in Japan by J.S. Homestead. Have never heard complaints about HS stuff, but they also don't get much play here or on Denimbro.
  12. Shoes that look better with age...

    The Black Klondike is probably the best leather in RW's lineup; if I was in the market I'd be tempted by the 9874s or the Hunstman (the former probably better for being on your feet or all-day walking though).

    Monkeys will probably suit you better.
