    @dudewuttheheck Did you shrink it further ? It fits sooo much better now and your lost of weight is really noticeable. Well done !

    @Flash Nice CSF tux! I love it

    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.

    Yep, I was confused what you were talking about but as the nice person I am, I simply kept my mouth shut  ;)

    Lol feel free to bust on me for that. It was dumb enough that I left it up for posterity.

    ^ Jack definitely steals you the show ;)

    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 :D That's how much I like his jacket. 


  3. 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 don't know what his kit is aside from the hat which is Dappers and the shoes which he obviously made for himself.

    No probs,

    Often the case with vintage 'sportswear'  they're cut for a 1970's pre-fructose, sporting generation of Americans (broad at shoulder and narrow at hip) You should be ok with an XL they're a 80/20 cotton/polly blend so they have plenty of give.

    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.

    We get more than our fair share of rain in Sheffield, the Pennines (Englands backbone) seperates us and Manchester so its often raining either here or there but more often than not... both.

    Not at all.. an Etsy seller called 'LegitVintage' based in Ohio had a stock of these baseball/warm up tee's all in DS condition, some are noted as being shop soiled (yellowing fold marks) mine included but i washed them on a 30° and they look brand new, i was planning on soaking then in Vanish but it wasn't necessary.

    Ive just checked and they still have plenty left although the sizes are dwindling.

    Check the sizing Jake, it sounds odd but i'm pretty sure you would need an XL in these, the hem wrinkles up so don't worry about them being too long.

    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.

    Thanks dude.

    You might have to wait till the rain stops and the sun comes out, it barely makes it above the horizon at this time of year... fingers crossed for a day in March

    I would recommend sizing up on these, they're a sporty fit ie- broad at shoulder and snug at the waist.

    I guess my sunny socal self cannot comprehend how much it rains in the UK :D

    Do you mind telling me where you got these? You seem to imply there are more available.

    can you vote for yourself? :ph34r: 

    are they a single vote for the winner or are we doing 3,2,1s like sunday league soccer and the ones with the most votes wins?

    Yeah I'm also curious as to what the voting system is. This is why I haven't submitted mine yet.

    Jake this jacket do your proportion right! best fit overall so far

    Thanks! At first, I was hesitant to buy two of the same jacket in different colors, but the black Mulholland fit me so well I just really wanted to get the brown one and I am quite glad I did. It's not just the basic measurements, but the way the jacket is cut overall that I think makes it work for me.


  9. This is a bit of a cross post from the contest submission thread, but I'll post more shots here. 

    I've worn these CSF 1937's for two years straight, which I think is the longest I have ever consistently worn one pair of jeans. They still haven't been worn all that much because I wear other trousers and chinos a lot and I can't wear them at work. They need repairs right now and there are a fair amount of broken threads, but I feel that they have held up fairly well. If I had washed them more and if I wasn't so overweight while wearing them, the crotch would likely have held up much better. At my current weight/where my weight is heading, this should be less of an issue in the future. They've been washed 4 or 5 times now, but obviously I should have washed them a lot more than that by now, even with my inconsistent wear. I'm not one of those people who thinks you should never wash your jeans, I just get lazy about it. The 11oz (pre-soak) fabric is great for Cali weather and wearing a normal weight fabric almost feels a little strange now. The cut and the light fabric means the combs are weak, but my extra weight during most of my time wearing these resulted in some pretty good whiskers IMO. 

    These obviously are not as beautifully fades as many other examples, but I'm pretty happy with them so far. I'm not sure if I'm going to wear them consistently after the repairs are done or if I make them a summer pair, but either way, they will still be worn.

  10. dudewuttheheck, USA, Conners Sewing Factory/One Piece of Rock 1937 model size 36

    I have absolutely no shot of winning. These were pretty much the only blue jeans that I have worn over these past two years, but I wear a lot of trousers, chinos, non-indigo jeans, etc. All the entries I've seen so far deserve the title more than me, but I am still really glad to have participated in this. The jeans need some repairs now, but I will continue wearing them for at least another year or two, maybe more. This is the lightest denim fabric I've worn at 11oz pre-soak and this was great for socal summers. I love these jeans.

    Wearing these jeans for two years straight means that I got to create a lot of memories in them, but the standout was wearing them in Japan. These were the jeans I wore when going back to see Konaka-San from CSF again. Wearing these in the workshop they were made in with the man who made them was pretty special.

    You're totally right. My Iron Heart jacket stays pretty dark but gets super light in areas with friction. The FCL just seems to fade to brown smoothly overall. 

    Yeah all my tea core jackets have been like your Iron Heart jacket. They all chip away to a light color underneath.

    I think I have seen some leathers similar to the FCL jacket, including shinki. 

    This Shinki jacket, for example, appears to have aged similarly to how yours is aging.

    Thank you! It definitely ages faster than my Flathead jacket. 

    Yeah, the Flat Head jackets with tea core don't seem to age too quickly. There are other Shinki hides that get into the tea core very quickly, but not all. The Fine Creek jackets do seem to start fading to brown almost immediately.

    What I like about it is that it's not chipping off like some tea core finishes, but instead is more smoothly and naturally fading to brown.
