  1. Conners Sewing Factory

    I also consider his work to be the next best thing/best repro and and I think I will end up with a pair of CSF before anything vintage, pre 1960s anyway, and certainly anything in deadstock condition. I imagine that I would even appreciate ordering via DM once I did it. I settled on size 34 second half 1946 last time originally, which is probably still where I would end up. If he threw up small batches for order online with detailed measurements and photos in the way that Roy does, I imagine I would have already bought a pair at one point or another, which I know is not exactly logical since this way is in many ways easier. Do you have a favorite model?

    I have wanted a pair for a couple years, but between ordering via Instagram, the waiting period from there, the sizing seeming difficult, indecision about which model to go with, the higher price point & potentially putting that money towards a vintage pair of Big E 501s, and already having too many pairs of jeans, I have resisted so far.

    Over on denimbro, someone just shared an attic find that look like the might be 100+ years old Levis.

    Mine arrived today-some very cool details. This article might add some interesting context.

    He posted the measurements for the last Test lot/RS00 so you can compare to the current Peanut/Memorial/R01/test lot cut as well.

    I saw those CB1s pop up on eBay and wished they were a size down. Great pick up @Broark. Our collections have a lot of overlap. I have RS01, All Duck, KS1002 x2, RT1002, Test Lot, R01, baja & charcoal bbq shirts, and heavy denim shirt. I have my fingers crossed that he gets to doing a jacket before he runs out of Black Seed.

    KS1002s were made using his first full custom run, before black seed. It was 100% Cotton 14.5oz Unsanforized Cone Mill White Oak Denim. It is a bit heavier and does not have the pink line selvedge. He made some for SelfEdge and then a final run on his own with some modified details that used up the very last of that fabric. KS1002 on the left and RT1002, which used black seed, on the right.

    Yeah I was looking at them too. Good pick up. Roy listed the RS00's as having "Going Places" patch on his site. As photographed, they also did not include some other notable details featured on that eBay pair. Interesting.
  9. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I think they are the Duck-1. Does anyone else have a Test Lot or RS00 with the Big Bro patch? I have seen it one other time on eBay, but it was also a size 32 so I wonder if it was the same pair.

    Here are some archived listings with measurements for several other pairs for further comparison: Original Five Pocket Jean RS04 RN04 SF01 CB1 KS1001 All Duck BB1002 RT1002 Duck Foreman Pants

    @Cornelius_ Please message it if you wouldn’t mind I was able to get in touch with him and got it all squared away. He said he was getting a bunch of people pretending to be me. Thanks again for everyone who gave me the heads up. Happy new year to everyone except my imposters.
  12. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Thanks @MJF9 I sent him an email, just getting worried somebody snapped them up. Hopefully it works out. I had just recently emailed him asking if the White Oak Memorial pair would include those before details had gone up on his site.
  13. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Oh man, I missed it. I guess I will email him and hope they are still around. Thanks for the heads up! I have now turned those post notifications on for the future. Did anyone screenshot it or does anyone know what the gist was?
  14. Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Thanks. This is the one from earlier this year, that went on sale Jan 1st. I believe it was 10.5 ounce pre soak. It is unsanforized Cone, but not a custom run for Roy I believe.
