    Tender Co. Denim

    Warmed up enough yesterday to throw on my new Lot 900 from the most recent run

    1000XX Dead Stock blue is a '46 model in fit & construction/detailing with their newly developed DSB denim, which has a finish that makes it appear oxidized as if it has been sitting in a warehouse for decades (hence the "dead stock") 1001XX is their Duck Digger model which they have released different year models of, all I believe are done in their "banner denim" which is a blend of 3 different american cottons, based on an original Levis 30s advertisement banner. The 1001XX standard version (I assume) is a '47 model, the year widely believed to be the gold standard for the 501. I believe the DD series focuses primarily on accuracy in the details/construction of their respective year versions, but not necessarily the fabric as they have 20s & 40s models using what would technically be a 30s fabric... I also just picked up a pair of the DSBs when they re-stocked at Hinoya but will probably keep them on ice for a while. Similar thoughts to flash @Flash I find the banner denim a bit underwhelming, and excited to see how this DSB denim works out. Pictures do not really do the fabric justice, the oxidation effect is subtle and almost gives it a grey hue. Here is a quick pic next to some worn in DD Banner denim

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Anyone know where I might be able to get my hands on Kapital's "Denim Friend" phrase book? Though I think it is from like 2014 so I have a feeling that ship may have sailed

    Those 1002s look amazing @Broark & @Toegun definitely want to try and pick up a pair if anyone stateside winds up stocking them Looks like the updated "loose" fit (lot 3035) model of their standard work shirt in white & blue chambray is starting to hit retailers in JP. I had the 3076 in denim but the fit was just a bit slim for my liking, so planning on grabbing the denim version once it hits Seems like WH is running a bit behind schedule with some styles, I think that one was from the spring catalog previewed back in January. Totally understand the delay with covid/related supply chain issues, just glad it wasn't canceled/scrapped. Have had my eye out for it all year and was afraid I missed it lol

    Gave in and gave them a cold wash yesterday. Went up by 1" to a 33" per Jeremy's advice and am very pleased with the fit. Definitely on the slimmer side of "slim-straight", like a true 505. Curious if anyone confirm if that is actually the reference in the style number OA01XX-505B ? The pattern on these actually reminds me a lot of Roy's R01 in having a really defined shoulder and back yoke that hugs the hips nicely. Was thinking of getting them hemmed, but might just leave them and embrace the double cuff... WWII details all around including mis-matched single & chain stitches on either out-seam, laurel wreath donut buttons, & no rivets on the coin pocket. The shape of the coin pocket of these might just be my favorite detail, I haven't seen this larger single-needle stitched square shape before! Also absolutely loving the "drunken" stitches on the back pockets. The fly buttons also have a really interesting feel with a longer ~contoured "wobble" neck from the S-type they used (they teased on IG a little while ago)

    Was also able to pick up a pair, my first pair of OAs and man do they absolutely live up to the hype. I was planning to keep them on ice since I have a few pairs already in rotation but I might just cave lol... Will update with some pics if/when I decide to give em their inaugural wash

    @JRendon02 & @Hopethisoneisnttaken here you go - Waist - 15.5" (31") Rise - 13" Thigh - 13" Since I washed them after hemming and only wore them 1-2x after there should still be some stretch in the waist, but shouldn't have any further shrinkage. Hope that helps!

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Just gave my XX20 R01s their ~10th(ish?) wash. Wore them pretty frequently for work the first couple months, then a bit less as it got warm. I would say probably about 8 months of actual wear on these. I was pretty late to the Roy party but feel very lucky to have these as a piece of history

    Bowery Blue Makers - NYC

    Just picked up a pair of Type-S I ordered in August, absolutely blown away! I chose the 13oz Kiyama denim, which is unlike anything I have felt. So much texture without being in-your-face. I have never even seen a horizontal sub in this effect! Echigoya-San’s studio is not too far from me in Brooklyn, and he was kind enough to let me pick up the jeans in person and visit his studio. He even showed me a sample of a new jacket style he is working on, and some cool other small projects he has in the works. Such a neat experience and couldn’t be more thrilled with the jeans! went with my true size 32, after a hot wash and air dry

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Also participating in the dome! Wearing a pair of Red Wing 877s from 1994 I stumbled upon from a local RW collector for a great price. Figured if I was going to break them in around this time anyways might as well take a shot at winning a cool prize too FWIW I also recently got sized for a pair White's by Kyle at Bakers and was totally surprised at what he advised me. I wear a 9AAA-9.5B depending on the maker, and he sized me at a 9.5C. Also a bit larger bigger than I expected, but I assume that is just how their lasts run. Haven't gotten the boots yet but hopefully if their advice worked out for you I should be alright too lol
