  1. iconic denim photos

    Can't recall if FW did, but the Hammersmith isn't so far away. Dropping the triple-stitched scalloped yoke across the chest like this was popular into the '60s and '70s though:

    Yeah, a good subculture needs music to go with it. So many subcultures these days are just a look it seems. What do hypewear kids even listen to? Bieber? Anyway, Sandlotcore discussion is useless without pics: 1962 recreated: '50s OG:
  3. I'm a 10E Brannock, wore 10E in the 875 and 10 in Lofgren. I got some old 10D RW Pecos and the toe box is a bit narrow but the instep and heel are loose as hell. I think @ecsong187 found he had the same issue with them. I still wear mine, but they're kind of an odd fit. Also, the shaft is very wide at the top, so every time I stand up my pants just sit on top of the boot, Tsujimoto style (opinions will vary on whether or not this is acceptable, sometimes I rock it, othertimes it bugs me):

    Will do, we need those up there for obvious reasons.

    That would be one of the other editors, but I'm glad you like it.

    I hear you dude, but I can only assign fades that we actually receive; the majority of submissions are as you describe, with very few "boring", vintage-style fades. Thankfully we have been getting more leather/patina submissions, though. Still, I'm beholden to what people send my way, so if you guys want to start sending in more fades I'm all for it and then some.

    @MJF9 do you mean the infamous 'diaper butt'? I can't speak for the '51s but it isn't so bad on the '43s. Then again, I'm coming from the SC1947s, which had a ton of diaper butt to start off with, though it did settle down some. The FW '47s I had didn't have diaper butt, instead they had wedgie butt because I tried to size down one. The whole seat and even upper thighs were just too tight and I had to cut my losses. A fit pic might help here; I'd say some diaper butt is acceptable, even desirable of how jeans "should" look.

  9. Momotaro makes some interesting sashiko ones too.
  10. Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    Thanks @MJF9, they were sagging a bit there on a rather balmy day. I've had to raise the cuffs a bit and make them taller to compensate some for that. So far my favorite cut of jeans out there, even more than the SC1947 (not quite as wide, slightly lower rise).
  11. Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    I haven't done any measuring on the '43s but they seemed to shrink some and stretch back to normal. I did manage to achieve some stretch on the waist of '47s, but ultimately sizing down didn't work out as the seat and upper thighs were too tight. Still, I like the '43 cut better, and I suspect I'd like it better than the '51 too. Overall it's a winner for me; here's them a month ago:
  12. Sugar Cane Denim

    There's always the Freewheelers range too, just don't size down on them. I love my 1943s, and the '51 is straight but not too wide.
