  1. Do any of you know where brands like 3sixteen, RgT and Freenote Cloth get their flannel fabrics from? I know 3sixteen gets their denim from Kuroki, RgT from Nihon Menpu and Freenote gets some of their denim from Yoshiwa Mill, but I’m curious if there flannels come from the same mills as their denim.

    Ah, but it's polyester and acrylic woven from unicorn ball-hair

    @mikecch Thanks. I saw Denimio plugging this shirt on IG for awhile now but they never really gave details other than 'coming soon.'

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    What do you guys think of this Bestmadeco denim jacket? Not sure it’s worth the $328 price tag but it’s made in the US with 16oz Japanese denim.
  5. Any of you heard of a leather jacket company called Double Helix? Not sure if they’re a Japanese company but I found them on Rakuten. Not a fan of all their stuff but they have a couple of nice looking pieces

    The taper on those Tanuki's is so extreme they almost look like denim sweatpants. Absolutely fugly

    The only person I can think of in the last few years that has innovated is Pigeon Tree Crafting. His quick release buckle and indigo dyed leather look pretty cool. I could never justify buying a new belt because my Rancourt belt is holding up just fine and likely will for years to come.

    Is it just me or do any of you think the handmade leather goods fad has died? I remember like 4-5 yrs ago a whole bunch of 'makers' started popping up on IG, all of whom had the same story. "I couldn't afford a nice belt/wallet so I started learning how to make my own and my company was born." I'm thinking specifically of handmade wallets and belts, not boots. Plenty of makers out there creating nice stuff but I think the market got saturated.

    Also makes sense because the Oni and Tanuki denim has extreme tapers to their fits.

    Check Rakuten. I came across a store that is selling the current batch of flannels. Not sure if they’re in Tokyo though

    Couple more new flannels on the site. Inside looks brushed too

    Why does Okayama Denim and Denimio have zero stock on a lot of their listings? I've ordered from each of those companies once 4 or 5 yrs ago and haven't bothered going back because they're always out of stock.
