  1. Pacific Blue Denims just announced that they've got 6 of the Draper looms and are going to be producing MiUSA Selvedge Denim
  2. @elevenwolvesclothing makes a nice M-65 jacket, to get one you'd have to DM him on instagram as he hasn't released them yet
  3. The Rite Stuff

    Yeah I just measured a Loop & Weft and Jelado that I have with side seams. Both are 102cm at the chest. Oddly the hem is bigger on both with the Loop & Weft is 105 at the hem (baggy), the Jelado is 103 (decent fit). If your large had a slightly wider shoulder, that would be the best fit on me.
  4. The Rite Stuff

    Yeah I wear 60% s/s henleys and 40% plain tees I'd say, would the short sleeve one have a taper to the hem?
  5. The Rite Stuff

    Would have jumped on the short sleeve (yep, Australia). Sizing doesn't really suit me. The XL would fit my shoulders and chest, but the straight shape of the body would be too billowy for tucking in. I guess this one is meant to be worn untucked, which isn't really my style. I laughed at the sweat-smelling throwing out part of the original blog post. FYI there are several things you can do to remove sweat smells from garments. I've found that the sweat smell staying in the garment usually happens when you use an antiperspirant deodorant which leaves residue in the fabric that traps bacteria causing it to smell. When you wash a garment that has bad sweat stains you really should let it soak in detergent for 24 hours. Liquid detergent is better, and if your local water is hard, you might need some washing soda (sodium carbonate) and/or borax to soften the water up, which will allow the detergent to work. And yeah you can use things like mouthwash, dishwashing liquid, white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and/or baking soda to treat sweat stains (depending on how/whether or not the garment is dyed)
  6. Warehouse

    @beautiful_FrEaK Yeah, because IME the Warehouse 800 back rise isn't that high. at least for what would be my size. I pretty much won't buy anything with a back rise under 15" (prefer 16-17" but super hard to find outside of custom denim) and I take a 32" waist and the 800 comes in at ~14" there, I think?
  7. Warehouse

    Do you pull the jeans all the way up?
  8. The Rite Stuff

    That's a shame actually. I much prefer wider and longer scarves, though I'm sure it won't make much difference visually. YMMV.
  9. The Rite Stuff

    Might have to grab one of those! What are the dimensions? edit: found on website 50cm x 165cm
  10. Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    Because they're a once wash, I imagine it just depends on how the pair turned out after the wash.
  11. Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    I tried those on at corlection earlier this year, had an issue with the crotch. The flat felled inseam joint would flip to the left side of the leg and that made the crotch area uncomfortable.
  12. I don't sew, but it could be that each company listed uses different tuning (tension?) / needles on the same machine to produce different results.
  13. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I was looking at the US measurements and they were measuring the shoulder at 16" on the XL, but the UK ones were measuring 17.75" on the Medium

    Their sizing info in the US is whack
  15. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    Loop & Weft LRC1031 Vintage Inspired Tee (Oatmeal) I would consider the color more of a light Heather Gray than an Oatmeal. The body is a recycled cotton yarn with several irregular traits. It's deliberately knitted slightly off-grain and it's very neppy in the sense that it's unfiltered, loads of cotton seed and plant are stuck in the fibers, way more so than any other t-shirt fabric I've come across. This makes it slightly itchy at times, but the neps will come out with washes. Sleeve ribbing in a very similar style to the latest Stevenson Natural cotton tee. I ordered a size 40 mainly due to the fact that the shoulder size on the 38 was listed as really small (42cm). The actual garment is a bit oversized to what I would consider my ideal fit range, but only slightly. I could hot soak it a few times to try and shrink it down a bit, there's enough extra length (71-72cm) to do that.
