    Rogue Territory Jeans

    I think a lot of it has to do with brand aesthetics/fits more than anything. US made is great but your brand ‘style’ has to have broad appeal. For US made I prefer 3sixteen, but that’s because I like their denim and their shirting fabrics are interesting. Not a knock against the other brands you mentioned but most of them are just kinda pedestrian to me. Likewise, there are tons of Japanese brands that are competing against each other, each with their own aesthetic.

    I’d also give them a try if they reworked the fit of their shirts. They’ve put out some interesting stuff in the past but I always had to pass. I’m not a shirt tucker nor do I like the look.

    Could never wrap my head around the cut of Freenote’s shirts. The measurements suggest I have to be tall and skinny to fit in one. Either they’re too narrow in the chest or too long in the body.

    Japan Post EMS is still no bueno to the US right? What does Bears use in its place? FedEx? DHL?

    Nice Things

    @Double 0 Soul that mackinaw blanket is nice. As much as I hate the fit of Filson’s clothing, they do manage to put out some nice things.

    Pure Blue Japan

    Which PBJ cut is similar to Iron Heart’s 777’s? I’ve always wanted to try PBJ jeans but seems like every pair I come across is an extreme slim taper with a narrow 7” to 7.25” hem. I’m looking for something with a 7.75” to 8” hem with some room in the thighs and knees. Maybe the XX-011?

    Sugar Cane Denim

    ^^ I used to own the same Warp Records tee years ago, except mine was the stealth version (black ink on a black tee).

    Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    @kiya I have a question regarding sizing on the PBJ SLB-013 denim on your site: https://www.selfedge.com/pure-blue-japan?product_id=2703 I reckon i'd be a size 36 based on the measurements but is the hem measurement correct for this size? The hem is listed as 7.75" but size 38 is also listed at 7.75". Is this a typo? Is the hem actually supposed to be 7.25" or is the listed 7.75" measurement correct? Thx

    3sixteen Jeans

    I'd buy if the taper wasn't so bad. But, BOW now mostly seems to sell denim with the carrot taper, which I hate. Is this the new normal for denim?

    Pandemic Masks

    I got my masks from thetiebar.com yesterday and like them a lot. I bought the men’s xl 5 pack for $30 and they fit my face perfectly. They’re 2 ply with a filter pocket and thin enough where I feel like I can breathe. They also have adjusters on the elastic which is a must have feature since elastic stretches out over time.

    Pandemic Masks

    I had the same issue with the elastic bands stretching on my RC masks. Nicely made but they’re no longer snug on my face

    Pandemic Masks

    I'll probably buy a 5-pk from thetiebar.com next. I have a couple of type I masks from RCFG and while they are nicely made, the elastic has stretched out to the point where the mask doesn't sit flush against my face. Guess my head is too bulbous.

    @Cold Summer you get your flannel yet? Curious what your thoughts are on fit/quality. Was yours sent DHL?

    @japanalogue pls do a UES interview on your site

    UES Denim

    That’s a nice color combo. Torn between the green and the red flannel.

    UES Denim

    As with all things, that's subjective and purely a matter of taste. I quite like IH color combo's and design, but not all of them. Likewise, I like UES's color combo's as well but not all of them. UES did some patterns a few years back that I thought I thought were really cool though.

    UES Denim

    ^^ yeah, I like the brand too. Had my eye on them for a few years but never pulled the trigger. Really dig the UES aesthetic

    At least WF’s prices aren’t that bad. $165 + shipping if direct from UES and $195 at WF.
