  1. Very cool. This is great to see! I was hoping some people would do something like this. Pacifc, Huston, and hopefully True Loom and others will bring more options to USA made denim.

    I can give you the measurements of mine at least if you'd like

    NICE!!! Can't wait to see those bad boys! Some more detailed shots of my CSF WWII jacket Please excuse the basic bitch coffee. I'm actually not sure if I look more like a knob if I don't say anything and allow you all to think that it's actually my coffee or if I insist on saying that I'm only holding it because my photographer/fiance couldn't hold it and the camera at the same time and that I only drink espresso Either way I love this jacket so much!
  5. I have that Cone duck fabric on my Roys as well and I have to say I do LOVE this fabric specifically. I even asked Roy a couple of years ago if he was going to be able to get more of it. Definitely a fantastic duck fabric.

  7. I see you are still operating under the impression that there is a correct opinion on Cone. I have seen Cone faded first hand and have seen all the subtlety that your insults lack. I still don't love it. I never said that people shouldn't love it or that it was not worthy of being a favorite mill of many. I only said it wasn't interesting to me. How is that even an insult? That does not imply that it is of inferior quality in any way. If you find it interesting? Fantastic! That's awesome. I also don't find Oni or PBJ interesting. Again, that does not mean I think it's bad denim. Also, I do own Cone products and enjoy them. It's not as though I'm against the company or something. I'm glad you like it so much. If we all loved the same brand and same type of denim then we'd all be obsessed with The Flat Head one year, then PBJ or Iron Heart, and then Warehouse at the same time. Oh, wait... The ironic part is that if my comment was ignored, this thread would be spending more time actually celebrating Cone.
  8. Is that a Pointer coat?
  9. I can't argue with that! However, I have experienced faded Cone denim first hand... Either way, I'm not trying to convince anyone of my opinion. I think the problem is that some people think there is a right and wrong answer to this when there is not. It's all just opinion. People say far worse about Oni and everyone is only too ready to agree. Of course I'm not surprised by this response, but I was hoping that more would be able to view my opinion as my own well-informed opinion and not an attempt to piss in the coffin. I also think some are getting too wrapped up on the fact that I don't love the denim. The whole reason I even made that comment was because of the possibility of new US brands weaving denim such as Huston. I believe that that is quite relevant here. There is still chance for denim to be made in the US which is very exciting. It's not often that we hear about new denim mills and based on the shirt fabrics I've seen from Huston, I believe they have a chance to weave some denim that I would really love (and possibly even prefer to Cone.)
  10. The loss of jobs is very unfortunate. Am I not allowed to give an opinion? I know for a fact that there are a lot of others who agree with me. I thought this was a thread to discuss the closure. If this is a mourning and condolences only thread, please let me know. The fact that skilled workers have lost their jobs is very sad and unfortunate. I really hope they have some chance to apply their skills somewhere else, but unfortunately I don't think that will happen. As far as the denim itself goes, I have never liked the way Cone denim fades. It's not my preference and I know that others have said this here and on other forums. For most brands (and especially the ones we really like here) this will have a fairly minor effect, if we're honest. Roy is probably going to be affected the most, but I'd be very surprised if he couldn't get denim from Japan as well. My point is that the title of the thread does not imply that we should only be giving condolences. Why is that not OK? Why jump on me just because I'm the only one with the nerve to say what many are thinking? In my opinion, this gives greater opportunity to any new small operation like Huston or True Loom that want to make some denim in the US. I would be happy to support them. I already own some Huston fabric shirts and they are incredible. There is something good that can come from this. Also, I do own some jeans and duck pants made from Cone fabric. It's not as though it's poor quality. It's just not my favorite and this is a conclusion I have reached after several years.
  11. This is exciting news! Based on how amazing your shirt fabrics have been, I'm excited to see some denim from you! Not to rub salt in the wound, but Cone denim was never very... appealing.

    Maybe they will change their minds.

    I even asked the Flat Head guys if they were bringing this back because like you, it's a grail shirt for me. Unfortunately, no dice

    that jacket does fit perfectly.
