    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I’ve officially burned out on the whole denim/clothing/brand craze. Don’t get me wrong, I still like what I have but I now have zero desire to accumulate more stuff. Any of you experience this?

    UES Denim

    I wish UES was consistent with their pocket shapes. I really like the acorn pocket style and think this is a detail that separates them from everyone else. Not a big fan of those giant rectangular pockets

    UES Denim

    Any of you jumping in on the flannel pre-orders? UES is a brand i'd still like to try but am unsure of fit. How much does shipping usually run to the US? https://www.japaneseselvagejeans.com/index_en_usd_12-49.html

    I’m not gonna post pics. Just genuinely curious if people are trying to turn it into a thing like denim. I like ponchos in theory but then I see pics and think it looks costumey. Big hats are just stupid looking imho. I mean, some dude somewhere is wearing a ridiculous looking hat that looks like a prop from Blazing Saddles and he actually thinks it looks good. “Mongo pawn in game of life.” lol

    Speaking of costumes, i've been seeing dudes on IG sporting ponchos and big silly hats. Is this a thing?

    Once a month or whenever they get filthy. Sorry but people that don’t wash their jeans because they want sick fades gross me the feck out

    This. But to answer the OP's question, I try to stick with a fit/cut that works for me.

    Yep, the eBay & PP fees really suck, but at least you were able to sell them and get some of your money back. It’s hard resisting hyped items too. I’ll splurge on things every once in awhile and then get buyers remorse immediately afterwards. I’ve had to learn to be more discriminating when making purchases

    IH being more widely available is a good thing imo. Not all vendors carry the same stuff and items still sell out. The hype releases you speak of are typically items that have been in development for many months. I’d rather they show sneak peeks often instead of nothing at all.
  11. I say go for the Fine Creek Leathers jacket. It’s a classic cut and will never go out of style. That Ooe one is all kinds of ugly to my eyes but that’s me

    Pherrow's

    Typically a large but sometimes do xl depending on the brand. Appreciate the offer but I’m squirreling my money away right now

    Pherrow's

    I’d try pherrows out but I can’t find a reliable fit chart on any of their clothes

    I haven't purchased new jeans in 2 yrs. I kinda did the same thing where I went on a denim buying splurge, and after a couple of costly mistakes I decided to cut my losses. I probably have over a dozen pairs of jeans in my closet and only a fraction of those get worn on a regular basis. I know my measurements pretty well now so feel more comfortable trying new denim....it's just hard for me to justify buying another pair when I have so many unworn pairs collecting dust.

    Nice. I'm assuming your goods were sent Japan Post EMS?

    W. H. Ranch Dungarees

    My take is that getting something for your jeans is better than nothing, even if it's only 50% of what you paid. I know that really sucks but you'll end up staring at those jeans in your closet and want them gone sooner or later. Maybe try a BIN for $300-350 and accept offers slightly below that amount?

    Any of you US peeps ever make an $800+ purchase from Japan or Europe? Curious how much you got stung for on duties

    That’s assuming he has a lot of followers on IG. Lots of scammers on eBay too, so doing a BIN guarantees payment

    W. H. Ranch Dungarees

    If I were you i'd just chuck them up on ebay with a lower BIN and see if anyone bites. You'll take a loss but at least you'd recoup some of your money back.

    Resale value is subjective. Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay when it comes to the second hand market. I know it's a cliche but it's true. I still see brands I like up on ebay where the seller is charging an over-inflated price and their item sits for months and months. With that said, i'd say that most product, especially denim, will lose 30-50% of their value, unless it's a highly sought after grail item.

    WH is doing the same thing essentially. If people start filing complaints with the AG's office he'll definitely know about it. I mean, he keeps posting sad trombone face pics on his IG account complaining about paying customers that are complaining about not getting their stuff. Not very professional imho. He seems to like talking about how quality takes time and that he's a one man operation. Ande Whall was a one man brand that did everything and in a timely fashion. The difference being that Ande took a sensible business approach to orders. He'd get a roll, make a limited number of denim from that roll and then get his jeans to customers. WH seems to make false promises and then has the audacity to take pot shots at customers that have been waiting a long time for product. If he can't deliver product then he shouldn't be in business. It's a Ponzi scheme. It's only a matter of time before sh*t hits the fan and he closes up shop.

    It’s Lawless Denim all over again

    For me it's any moto jacket with a band collar. I'm not a motorcyclist so i'd feel like a poser. However, R&H has a Flat Head leather jacket with a standard collar that I think I could rock, even though it's technically a motorcycle jacket.
