    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?

    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

    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.

    Any of you have any experience with the fit of SC’s work shirt flannels? True to size or size up?

    Does anyone know if Momotaro or Studio D’artisan have a FW18 lookbook available yet? Kinda curious what shirting options they’ll have this winter

    same here. I have 1 pair in my rotation that I haven't washed yet and those are going on about 8 months of wear. Those already have holes in the cuff and the back of the knee. My other jeans though have been washed repeatedly and while there are a few bits of wear and tear on them the damage isn't as bad as my unwashed denim. With most of my denim though I usually do a cold soak in the tub to get rid of the starch, and then follow that with semi-regular washes.

    With a shirt like this, who needs pants?

    3sixteen Jeans

    3sixteen does not do repro. I have 2 pairs of their jeans and they're pretty good quality. However, given the extra cost you'd pay to get a pair i'd be sure to ask for precise measurements from whoever you buy them from. My experience with buying jeans is that very rarely are a pair exactly on spec to a manufacturer's fit chart.
