    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Cold Summer, thanks for posting what I’ve been thinking about lately. I hadn’t paid attention to it in a while, but it came to my attention that so much of what is “modern”, from the schools of thought of Gropius, Bauhaus, van der Rohe, the International, and Brutalist, etc was based on the idea of “man as machine” and is truly de-humanizing and atomizing, and in many ways “modern” clothing styles are part of that process. And is anyone really comfortable with a world like that anymore? So, I’m glad we have what we have in this area and can keep something more humanistic alive, even if it’s through clothing.
  2. In that price range, Cushman.

    I wouldn’t mind Cushman’s black salt and pepper chinos. Also, the Brown’s Beach shawl collar cossack.
  5. Not to be pedantic, but it’s a watch pocket, not a coin pocket. That said, lint.

    Bryceland’s tokyo and hongkong

    Buying a pair at $200 is too high, I would walk from that deal. I’m in the same boat re: limited run and working with someone to have my stuff made in Japan but I would pass if it cost me $200 per pant to buy for sewing/fabric costs. Yes, patterning, grading, buttons, tags, shipping, customs etc would drive the real production cost up, but still. Then again I don’t have B&M overhead costs to pay. I’m surprised the black western shirt is the same price. I need these kinds of margins.

    Yeah, those denim chinos for example are very similar to the ones John Lofgren made some years back but are more than double the cost. I had been toying with the idea of reviving that pair and I certainly wouldn’t sell them for close to $400.

    Needs matching hat IMO.

    Wait, where can I see this scuffle? Don’t see anything on SOP’s IG.

    Yep, the 1939! Not in production anymore AFAIK but I think you could ask FW if they might have any left. Speaking of FW, looking at maybe the camel Golden Spike trousers.

    A ventile Moonstar All-Weather would be the cat’s ass!

    The 51 is more tapered than the 47 and 43. Speedway has measurements: https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/1412002/?l-id=rgm_item_en_recommend_widget https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/1412003-s/ https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/1412003-s/ The 43 is listed as having the same thigh and knee width, but FW blog claims it’s slimmer. My w33 43 definitely feels a bit slimmer than the w32 47s I had.

    What about some Moonstar All-Weathers?

    The ‘47 is the widest and has the darkest denim, the 43 is a touch slimmer and lighter-colored, the 51 is the slimmest with the lightest denim. The 43 is the WW2 model and doesn’t have the yellow enamel-coated buttons and has green HBT pocket bags. Of the three, the 43 cut is my favorite.

    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:
