    Thanks @dudewuttheheck—have you looked at Graph Zero’s collaboration with Nihon Menpu from a couple of years ago? They used a fabric very similar to this (and another very similar to the charcoal lot 285); I have a suspicion that they may have been a re-run of the same or a similar production

    No, I haven't. Anywhere to still find those new? Or should I be looking at grailed and ebay and such?

    Well, in the case of a fuck up and lost package, the damage is totally on your side though.

    yeah of course, but some of the stores have even refused to lower the declared value for me. Maybe I have no good reason to be surprised that the proxy service would do it. I have not had to use one yet. The last time I needed to proxy something, I was lucky that a friend was willing to help me out.

    I'm sorry.  I am also using Google Translate.  I didn't understand the subtle nuances...sorry.  If you like patches, you're okay!

    I love the patch! If they release the t shirt with the patch design on it, I would buy it.

    I tried to make a joke, but I didn't do it right and I was rude instead of funny, so I am sorry for that.

    If it's anything like the tcb20s contest patch it will sadly become unreadable then  disintegrate after a few washes. My contest patch is a distant memory. 

    And it never saw a dryer.

    I'll have to take some good shots of it before wearing it then and just hold out hope for that patch t shirt. Unfortunately that doesn't seem likely, though.

  5. @Nayuta I'm sorry. My comments were meant to be lighthearted, not super serious. As I said, this is my favorite patch I've seen on a pair of jeans. I have no desire to have a different patch in any way. The patch is one of the reasons I'm so excited for the jeans. 

    I can barely write legibly, let alone attempt to draw anything 

    @Graytrain yeah man, I can't come back from a burn of that magnitude :D

    Just gave away my TCB 60s to a neighbor's high-school-aged son along with some 3sixteen tees (the only thing I regret being tall for) and some other things that have been sitting for too long. I left a little message about what they are and why I like them, and his mom told me that he loved everything so much that he started reading up on all of them. I didn't really intend to spread our gospel, but I'm hopeful that maybe he'll spend all of his money on jeans instead of drugs and booze lol

    Do any of you have friends/family that you share in this hobby with?

    That's awesome! I've gotten my brother sort of into it over time, especially after going to Japan with him twice. He has several RJB and Freewheelers shirts, some loopwheeled t shirts, and a jacket from RMC as well as some shoes from Motor and boots from White Kloud. He isn't going to join a forum any time soon, but he likes the clothing. My girl has recently gotten interested in all of this as well. I never pushed her toward it, but it's fun to share it with her now. I guess both of them just spent too much time with me and it rubbed off on them.

    Dude, if you look at p32 of this thread, similar (and other) matters involving authenticity of the plane and credibility of feline pilots has already been discussed at some length... :laugh2:

    Ah, I guess I'm just too late to the party. This thread moved too quickly for me to keep up!

    For the record, though, I do think cats would make better pilots than dogs.

  8. I love that patch, but am I the only one who is bothered by the prop setup on that plane? It's clearly modeled after a WWII single engine fighter/dive bomber/torpedo bomber(probably one of the latter two, given that there are two animals in the plane instead of only one), but then it has two extra props on the wings, but no engines and the center prop looks stationary.

    Obviously this doesn't matter and it's still the best patch ever, but I can't help but think about that every time I see it :P

    Don't Nomos use proprietary mechanisms?

    Depends on the watch as some are more proprietary than others. I believe you're thinking of their escapement called the "Nomos Swing System" which is proprietary, but it's only in their DUW calibers, not the Greek letter calibers.

    Also , the Alpha movement is 'in house,' but is based off the Peseux 7001. I personally do not know how similar it is to its base movement and whether or not it can be serviced as easily, but I believe that there are enough parts that are not interchangeable to make it 'in house' and thus cannot be serviced in the same way.

  10. I actually haven't rotated much at all in quite some time. For the most part, I've been wear my CSF 37s for nearly 3 years now. I do wear a couple of my other CSF jeans as well every once in a while, but that isn't very often. I don't even have all that many pairs of jeans. The big reason my jeans don't fade much is that I don't wear jeans while sitting around at home, I wear a lot of other chinos/trousers instead of jeans quite often, and I also cannot wear jeans to work. Hence, my jeans have probably 8 months of actual wear even though they've pretty much been the only jeans I've worn for nearly 3 years. 

  11. Flat Head THC t shirts are indeed indestructible. I have problems with the necks sagging on most of my t shirts, but not on those. Only issue is they are so thick that they often are not the best choice during warm weather.

    Takes me five years, at least, to get mine primed:laugh2: ... my contest pairs “bloom” years after the contest ended.

    In that breath, peeps who want to be competitive do what they do, due to time constraints ... now,  a 5-yr competition, most peeps would be in a slow boat.

    Gotcha. I can understand that even if I don't subscribe to that mindset myself. My jeans take forever to fade too because of work and the fact that I like wearing chinos and trousers a lot too. I still just let it happen naturally. My CSF 37's definitely do not look like they have been my main jeans for almost 3 years by now, but I'm OK with that.

    I'm surprised to hear that folks actually have fading methods, i just wear the damn things and que sera sera.. i find that good fades often come from giving less of a fuck :D

    I think your fades are pretty strong proof of how well not having any special method works.

    I'm surprised people are still talking about using any special method at all during this era of vintage fade popularity. Do whatever you want of course, but I am surprised.
