    Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    They look pretty good, sizing is so weird though, I haven't really seen a single one that would be a good fit for me - it's either way too small in the shoulder or way too big in the chest

    I have also noticed that while the jacket may smell after a wear, it's gone by the next morning. The wonders of wool.

    Cool, no problem. I have some aftermarket wool detergent, and I've now moved to a place that has good soft water. Did you notice any shrinkage?

    Does anyone have the SOC Wool/Cotton Athletic Jacket? I bought one this week and am loving it, but it's dry clean only. Not super practical if the cotton underside gets sweat smells after a week of wear, anyone tried hand washing?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I got one made to measure that I use for formal occasions, I'll need to get another one for summer though because the fabric I chose was a bit thick for anything but aus cold weather. That won't cover you for friday but if you can find a maker that you trust I think it's a good option.

    Denim Stores In Australia

    re: customer service: I actually found the Corlection Melbourne customer service rather consistent. Generally if I went over and looked at or picked up an item, either Charlie or Rui would come over and go through the bulletpoints about the item that they list on the website, as if they knew all of them off by heart, also in a rather natural manner. They would also comment or offer opinions on the sizing as well, in a loose sense "go for a 38 if you like a slim fit, or size up if you like a looser fit" and would assist you when you were in the change room. I didn't buy too many of the jeans though, mostly t-shirts and accessories. Other Menswear shops in Melbourne do have very good customer service as well though - Up There, Pickings, Godspeed being denim-related ones.

    The Rite Stuff pocket tee also goes pretty large iirc as well

    If it doesn't say loopwheeled then it probably isn't, and is instead likely using tubular knit sinker needle machines. That doesn't mean that it isn't a good t-shirt though. I have several t-shirts/henleys in non-loopwheeled wakayama fabric and it is still really good to amazing quality

    My experience with them has generally been good. I have heard from others that the service is a lot better if you can speak chinese (out of familiarity rather than language barrier), however I haven't had any issues as a white guy. The second or third time I bought something there I had to return a pair of chinos that had a defect and they were reluctant to take it back because I wore them out of the store. I had to come back in a second time to convince them. They did however replace them, and they also replaced a pair of Thorogood Boots that had a sewing defect on the interior at the captoe months later no problem and changed it to half a size bigger at my request. I haven't been in there much in the past year, I think the previous store manager has left and I've only seen Rui/Ray (the tall guy) in there

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    Picked up a National Athletic Goods 11oz Mock Twist Double V Warm Up sweat in Dark Grey Size M recently from the Superdenim sale: superdenim.com/row/national-athletic-goods-mock-twist-fleece-double-v-warm-up-dark-grey.html This is my first good quality sweatshirt. Pretty cool texture, very soft, well constructed, good fit. Neckline isn't too wide. I'd say it's definitely worth what I payed for it. Will take some photos in the next couple of days. I'm still going to get a Warehouse 404 if they re-make those next season and will do a comparison.

    Kanekichi Knitting Company Ltd, Japan and Merz B. Schwanen in Germany (or at least, the factory in the Swabian Alps that they use, don't know if they own it). I have seen one blog post online to suggest that a mill in Japan called Toki Sen-i Co. Ltd also has some, but no other sources (whereas I have seen several sources and photos for Kanekichi). The Flat Head apparently has at least one of their own machines as well iirc?

    I'm looking forward to the Heather Grey ELS Cotton Henley. I've got 2 in the Natural and the fabric is A++

    @BroarkIn the most recent run, the LRC1020 is 42.5 inch in the chest, but yeah they often come in on the smaller side there.

    If the sizing works, I recommend the recent Loop & Weft San Joaquin Cotton tees & henleys (LRC1037 & LRC1018). Extremely comfortable, breathable and the fabric has a fair bit of give.
