    Superdenim community sale thread

    Looking to let go of a Warehouse lot 403 sweatshirt in oatmeal size 42 (M/L) picked up from Self Edge a while back but haven’t worn much. Hot washed initially to remove shrinkage, worn a handful of times but no real signs of wear. 22.5” p2p x 23” length, $85 shipped in USA as well as a size Large lot 4080 (?) border tee in navy/gold, picked up from Standard & Strange in 2020. Only worn it maybe 3x since, pretty much perfect condition. Fits more like an M than L, 19.5” p2p x 25” length. $40 shipped or take both for $100 shipped in the US

    @julian-wolf I would say this fit closer to a US large, or Japanese XL. Definitely feels like a more traditional western fit, the only note being the opening of the armholes to be a bit slim (6.5” across) which I believe is more of a stylization thing in tandem with the freedom gusset underneath. Hope that helps!

    Letting go of 2 YM Factory loopwheel pocket tees, 1 grey & 1 navy both size 42. Took a gamble on the measurements and they came out a bit bigger than I was hoping. Washed & tumble dried on low to try and shrink them down a bit but not as much as I had hoped so they’ve been sitting unworn for some time. Sewn entirely on vintage machines, bound collars and cool “freedom sleeve” style underarm gussets. Both measure 22.5” p2p & 27.5” long $40 shipped each in the US or $70 for both.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    ^ I think that is a bit of an over-simplification and exaggeration. Some pickers still may operate that way, but for every "once in a lifetime" ($2.00 type-1 at an estate sale) finds, there are an exponential number of busts and dead-ends even for the most experienced. I do agree with you for the most part about a certain few being the assholes who dig through peoples barns/ dilapidated-looking houses without permission and taking anything they find, which is stealing. If you don't have permission to be there, you shouldn't be taking anything either which seems like common sense... Primarily seems concentrated in an new generation who saw hype on social media about inflated rap-tee & after-hood sweatshirt prices and fancy themselves as pickers but don't know or care to learn anything about etiquette, whether at the bins or other approaches

    Vintage Denim?

    Wow, actually surprised to see the marbling/grainy-ness on that '41 pair looks much more akin to warehouse's banner denim than most other actual pre-war 501s I've seen

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Have to agree with all the above points, instagram just feels like an endless " totally not sponsored" advertisement at times and the communities of reddit and discord seem to get clamored with a groupthink that veers in a direction I am not crazy about. When you have any kind of community centered around a commodity it can easily morph into a hyper-consumption competition, which I feel like Sufu resists well due to it's significantly smaller but dedicated overall user base. There is still a solid core of people active here who sincerely care about the things they own for the details and not just for how they appear to others, eager to exchange knowledge and not just compete for upvotes. I am not much of an active poster on here but I pretty much lurk daily and find this to be pretty much one of the few social platforms that doesn't make my brain feel mushy after more than 15 minutes

    Levi's 501 - a visual guide

    By that time as well (late 60s-early 70s) Levi's were producing 501s in many different factories so the transition dates of production techniques wasn't as seamless as it looks on paper. IMO dating any pairs from '69 -' 73 can be the most challenging (and fun) since it seems like nearly all of the pre & post transition details were pretty much all in play here
