    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I will never understand this whole sea wash thing. This is even more ridiculous than the "don't wash your jeans" mentality in my view. Even if it does do anything, which I doubt, it's so silly and ridiculous that it's not worth it. This post is a little strange because they seem to be trying to give a balanced take on it, giving pros and cons, but I still have doubts that there are pros at all. They even say themselves that if you are going to sea wash, you should machine wash afterward... so why sea wash in the first place? I don't see how a bit of sand rubbing really helps your jeans look better at all.

    I like a lot of jeans that are not strict repro actually. I just don't wear them or buy them too much anymore. I like a lot of Strike Gold fabrics, Tanuki fabrics, Samurai etc and my all time favorite denim fabric is from RJB. I have come close to buying many of them. I still regret not grabbing one of the Samurai 25oz anniversary pairs.

    Yeah the Oni collab denim is a little more neppy than I would like, but I think the warp and weft colors together are why I like it so much. That Flat Head denim looks brilliant and I would love a pair of those. Shame about the sizing. We have both sized incorrectly, but in the opposite directions

    @mpukas these are the regular cut with the earth denim. As with many 'regular' or 'retro/vintage' cuts that are not made by actual repro brands, the rise is too low. I was sent them a few months ago when my waist was 3" wider and even then, they were slightly loose even after a machine wash. I bought them oversized for a higher rise, but the rise is still too low for me. Other than that, I like the cut. The hip flare is becoming too much on me now, but that obviously wouldn't be a problem with the correct size. The denim is nice. My favorite of theirs is their 21oz secret denim collab with Oni, but I like this denim a lot as well. Nice texture and character without any over the top elements. My favorite fabric still goes to the last RJB fabric, but I like this a lot too. Construction is also quite good. I'm working on a full review as well. Basically my only real complaint is the rise which isn't low, just not as high as I would like.

    Those white boots are hideous and I'm surprised Lofgren signed off on them as I generally like his designs and special edition leathers.

    Yes I hot washed and tumble dried it in order to shrink it down further. It shrunk a lot more than I expected, but I am glad it did. It's funny that it fits better now that I'm smaller and I always thought it was oversized, but yeah losing 26 pounds helped. Lol feel free to bust on me for that. It was dumb enough that I left it up for posterity.

    It really does, doesn't it? I know I just said mine fits better now, but I really wish it looked as good on me as @Flash's looks on him. *EDIT* Wow, I read Jack as jacket That's how much I like his jacket.

    Show Goto from White Kloud Boots came to LA on vacation in early December and we were able to set up a fitting for people at Railcar Fine Goods in Monrovia. It was a great event and he was busy with fittings all day. I also included one of the pictures I took of him when I took him to Huntington Beach. He's a great guy and I am glad to call him a friend now along with being my favorite boot maker. I'm wearing Freewheelers, The Real McCoys, PTC, Railcar, and of course White Kloud I don't know what his kit is aside from the hat which is Dappers and the shoes which he obviously made for himself.

    Yeah I'm trying to get back to that type of physique. Technically I'm halfway there, but this is the more difficult half now. I'm not worried about the length either as I tuck everything.

    Grabbed the last white/purple one that was available in XL. Big thanks for the help! I really appreciate it. I've always wanted a baseball t like this and purple is my favorite color. You weren't kidding about the sizing. It was perplexing. The large was absolutely tiny compared to the XL. I wish the mediums actually fit like mediums. I could have grabbed more.
