    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Yes that one is very well done, just seems like they’re made in China. Not many brands really pulling it off. There’s a new one from Birdwell Beach Britches that’s not bad but I don’t like the color or stripes (prefer plain black or a dark burgundy):

    Thanks for the refs guys, but looking more something more period-correct. I’ll keep an eye out for vintage or maybe a used Phigvel.

    Not bad but too thin. I might just keep my eyes peeled for vintage. Thanks for the refs though guys!

    @Spiraltoy Thanks for that, the Drake’s version isn’t bad, the shaker-style knit is suitably chunky. The Dehen one is nice but not thick enough. I think both are missing the loop-button on the collar and in most the shawl collar is too thin. Sleeves cuffs should also be a bit long for cuffing back. Seems like few/no makers get all the details right in shawl collar shaker knit sweaters; Phigvel has made some nice ones but sometimes with striped rubbing and done in China. Here are some ‘20s and ‘30s vintage examples: I could probably have them made in Japan but likely pricey.

    I think we’re both quite good at bending each other out of shape.

    I just skimmed your post, don’t get bent out of shape about it.

    The ugliest Jeans in the world thread.

    It’s actually oddly alien and cool looking as a fabric goes, like a kilim rug, but too strange for a selvedge line. It actually looks like something Kapital would make.

    I would note here that “original” when used by most Japanese brands means new/repro, not vintage originals.

    AFAIK, Big Smith never went by just “Smith’s”, even in the ‘30s. Earliest buttons from them that I know if are like so:
