    Yep, it’s by me, thanks guys!

    A lot of newer brands in recent years, especially the Tokyo “cool guy” brands, come from the streetwear scene and their approach to denim/heritage is definitely influenced by that, i.e. no online presence, secret shops that you have to find, staff that deem whether you’re worthy enough to shop there, etc. And yet people still fall for it.

    The CSF dumpster fire stinks more by the minute! So glad I never got into them.

    @dudewuttheheck, have you looked into either FW or Sugar Cane jeans? I think you’ll find their 47 models might suit you more, IMO.

    Don’t want to sound like Ed but they look a bit small in the seat IMO. That’s how my TCBs fit and I never did get over the wedgie fit.

    Yeah I talked to denim seeker and he says he deleted the book and doesn’t seem keen on sharing it for the time being. That said I think legally he’ll be more than OK, I don’t see him being successfully sued for this. He posted this FWIW:

    I saw that on Instagram but it’s unclear why Konaka claimed that; something about using photos from eBay listings that CSF went on to win? Edit: It’s been clarified and it was along the same lines, just not eBay but a different auction house. Either way, not a legally sound move at all by CSF, AFAIK owning an item or photo doesn’t actually transfer copyright ownership.

    VEB inadvertently created quite the monster didn’t he. I didn’t mind when he did these types of shots back in 2014 or so, but it seems like so many aped his style.

    Yeah agreed; a bunch of Japanese stores do it so I’m used to it, to the point of it being a no-brainer.

    Thanks! I wear the natural CXL derbies when it's hot out, also have a pair in black on the way.

    Hey guys, I’ve opened up pre-orders on my new Bantam short-sleeve work shirt in 5 oz. Japanese selvedge cotton-linen chambray in both indigo and ecru version: https://the-rite-stuff.com/ The ecru version is arriving a bit later because the mill will have to specially make more of this fabric for me, perhaps those down under won’t mind though! Although the Bantam is 1930s in styling, short-sleeve work shirts were not generally sold before the post-WWII, unless marketed as sport shirts with sport collars, so if guys wanted a short sleeve they would cut down a long sleeve: A slightly lower back yoke this time, based on a 1920s catalog I have: The acorn pockets are often thought of as a later Lee invention but I’ve found examples from 1920s catalogs of this pocket shape. That said, Lee did popularize them with the Chetopa shirt: 1937: Star-pattern urea buttons, made in Japan, are based on 1920s originals: Original button on a 1940s Tuf Nut shirt I have:

    This is sound advice IMO.

    Asia is making moves toward cashless as well, we have Apple Pay, Line Pay, paying with your commuter card, and others, but it will be a long while yet before it happens seeing how many small businesses are still cash only. I think places like the US will also hit a stumbling block with the strip club issue. How are guys going to tip their favorite dancers? Or make it rain? I suppose they could swipe their NFC wrist implant at a machine and get stripper Monopoly bucks that are only good in the club, but it’s a pressing matter.
