    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Denim pet peeve: jeans with small front pockets. I’ve put an old pair of denim in rotation from United Stock Dry Goods and the front pockets really suck, as in they have no depth. I don’t know if this was a cost saving measure or just poorly thought out. Pretty much all my other jeans have decently deep pockets. Any of you experience this?

    I’d also like to add that my interest in denim was piqued when I kept seeing pics of selvedge. I thought it looked kinda unique and cool and started researching brands. Nowadays my interest isn’t nearly as pronounced as before. I haven’t bought new denim in awhile and I’m making the effort to wear all the cheap jeans I bought years ago.

    My first real pair were the SL-120 shadow selvedge from 3sixteen in 2014. Still have them and they’re beat to hell and in dire need of repair. Haven’t looked back since
  4. I was fortunate enough to have seen ATCQ open for the Beastie Boys back when Hello Nasty came out (‘98 or ‘99?). Great show

    Indigo Proof appears to be highly regarded, so if you don’t mind waiting I’d go that route. Otherwise, not sure if SE has a wait period nor do I know the extent of their repair services. Best to reach out to Kiya about that

    Think I’m gonna jump on these when they’re available. The ones that came out in Fall ‘22 didn’t do anything for me, so I’m glad there are color variants I like this time.

    You’re not one of these woke ideologues that had to undergo sensitivity training are you?

  9. Who makes a decent pair of thermal bottoms that don’t disintegrate? The issue I have is that every pair I buy the back of the calf area always wears through because of friction and I wind up with holes. Is this inevitable regardless of brand, or does someone out there make tough as nails thermal bottoms that are bomb proof?

    I think Covid really hurt some of these companies, especially those without large international reach. I’d argue that a lot of these companies would have gone under without their international customers

    I don’t know what it is about Freenote but I just don’t like them. Although, I do like the Wells jacket they put out recently
  12. I need sizing advice on Air Jordan 1’s. I wear a size 10 New Balance 574 and size 10 in Onitsuka Tiger. Would I also wear a 10 in the Jordan’s?

    Some denim companies have done quite well scaling internationally for sure. But we’ve also seen inflation run amok on goods and services. At some point prices will continue to go up, especially when you look at Japan’s aging work force with not many to replace them. It’s just like blue collar labor in America. Those jobs are in high demand and pay well but the pool of labor to replace them at retirement is quite low. I just think if denim companies reach a point where they’re charging $400 or $500 for jeans then consumers are going to stop buying, or at the very least scale back on spending. There are still brands charging $250 or less, so there’s still a market out there. My two cents, which is worthless

    True, but I’m assuming that pool of consumers is dwindling. I understand that companies will do what they have to to stay afloat but it could also backfire and not give them the financial boost they need. It’s hard enough to get consumers to dish out $200+ for denim let alone $300+.

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    I think you’re shorting yourself, especially if you’ve got woodcarving/woodworking skills. I agree that automation is slowly killing those types of jobs but I think it’s about finding your own niche and promoting your skillset versus relying on some company to take advantage of it. I’ve seen people on IG who have lucrative businesses making furniture out of reclaimed wood, which I think is pretty cool.
