    From what I know, the black and white denim fabrics are limited edition fabrics for the new years event. I got a black jacket with embroidery done.

    In terms of compliments, no actual denim items ever get complimented. I do get a lot of unsolicited compliments from strangers on my leather jackets and sometimes on my engineer boots as well. My Himel Grizzly gets the most compliments by far due to how much it stands out.

    WTF didn't I just buy it? What's wrong with me?

    Not getting a pair of the old Flat Head engineers when they were still available.

    2.5 year wait? Let's just say that some people will be happy that TCB is entering the Leepro game.

    Wait, so all of yours would be the same size then?

    Oh ok didn't know it was larger than the WWII. Glad to know. I will be bringing an actual camera this time, so I will definitely take more pictures!

    I think CSF is just a niche within a niche within a niche within a niche. For guys like myself, Flash, and a couple others, CSF is the end all be all. I'm going back to see him in less than a month and will almost certainly order yet another pair (probably first half 46), but many others will simply never pull the trigger. For me, the personal touch of the dm ordering is one of my favorite parts, but I do understand why people don't like it. @Flash how did you size your first half 46 compared to your 47 and WWII models? I know your 47 was one size larger than your WWII

    Studio D'artisan

    Definitely worth the price for me. Easily the softest piece of clothing I have owned. Love the color as well. The gold tint really makes it look more unique. The review is more detailed obviously, but the short version is that I love it.

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Great fit on that one dude. Glad I was able to help

    This is sort of how I feel about modern/slubby jeans like PBJ and Strike Gold. I respect them, but I have so many jeans already that I have no need to buy them. CSF and WWII jeans are definitely a niche within a niche. For me, it's the history that appeals to me and all the unique little differences along with the more classic cuts. However, I never really bought any until CSF went all out and sort of perfected the genre.

    The comments on that article are hilarious It would help if Heddels gave any actual detail or insight into the jeans, but as usual, this is completely lacking.

    And don't forget that if you voice any of your displeasure at his terrible customer service on the wrong forum, he goes and tries to discredit you like an absolute jerk. There are few companies in this industry that I would recommend less than WH Ranch.

    RRL Rodeo Ralph Lauren

    Those shoes are probably made by Edward Green. I believe they've made shoes for Ralph Lauren in the past. Possibly John Lobb too, but I think it's Edward Green.

    RRL Rodeo Ralph Lauren

    Ralph Lauren, including RRL does indeed engage in poor business practices. Ralph Lauren actually has a terrible track record for ethical means of production. There are some products from them made in USA, but most of it is outsourced. Snake Oil not only is not straightforward about RRL's production, they clearly show no care for the integrity products are made with, something many feel is important in this type of clothing. Snake Oil also handled that situation extremely poorly with conduct completely reprehensible for a store. Personally, Snake Oil will never get any more of my business, despite how close I live to the store (I have shopped there before). No, I personally do not think that RRL is a brand that should be supported or purchased from.

    These look a LOT like Attractions suede engineers...

    The Flat Head

    That looks good to me. I would definitely NOT size down. Are they washed yet?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I mostly listen to classic rock, early 2000's pop punk, and a boatload of Rush. Not sure that fits with my Sophisticated Japanese biker look.

    Does this mean we need to start a new music genre along with clothing style? My vote is 1950s rock and roll blended with screamo.

    The Flat Head

    Flat Head fades still make me smile. Great aging on those sneakers as well. I have the white pair and love them. Wore them today in fact!

    Deleted. Who cares?

    I definitely agree with you. While that look is basic, I think it still looks good... As long as the jeans fit properly. The Japanese take on it that you describe is also what I prefer, though I have seen some westerners do that look with a classic looking western hat and pull it off really well. Damn! I will take that as a compliment. That is essentially my favorite style.
