  1. Edwin Jeans..

    I’ve got the ed-47’s in a 29. They measure a bit over 16 inches with the waistband aligned and pulled tight. I think that’s straight from the washer but can’t be sure as I haven’t worn these for some years. I used to sell Edwin at the store where I worked and they’re often huge in the waist. Bare in mind that the ed-47 have quite the low waist. I think you’ll be fine with a 30”.
  2. I’ve been to their store in NYC (which is great) and own a denim selvage deck cap, 4 ties, 3 bow ties and a scarf from them. Construction is great but fabric is on a Japanese-obsessive level. I think there’re some vids on YouTube if you search there. Otherwise, just look at who stocks them. Do you trust theses stores? For my money they’re on par with any label dicussed here.
  3. Noob question maybe but I’ve searched and couldn’t find the answer. The rep system, how does it work? I get pos and neg rep but what about trash, the blue up and down rep and super rep!?
  4. UES Denim

    Well, firstly they’re a good size but I’m guessing they’re tightly weaved long staple cotton or something. They just don’t break.

    So, found a store based in Tokyo on Etsy for my broken thread problem above. https://www.etsy.com/se-en/listing/477688249/cotton-thread-for-vintage-jeans-making Ordered today. 3 colours. Cheap shipping. It says that “It's become yellow by repeated washing.” which sounds good. Fingers crossed that I can match the thread colour and thickness UES uses.
  6. Sugar Cane Denim

    Does anyone have an opinion about Cheswick by Sugarcane? Are they all made in Canada? How’s the quality?

    Oops, sorry if I performed a bit of nechromancy there.

    Mustach wax from Swedish brand Mr. Bear. Great stuff.
  11. UES Denim

    UES 400t Maybe 1,5 years of wear. 40c wash every month or so. Really lovely denim and the fit is one of my faves. Don’t get me started on the pocket bags (I usually have to mend these a lot but not here!).

    Prolly a couple of days and about €26. Shipping was lightning fast. Thanks!

    Finally got my tcb 60’s a couple of days ago. They got caught in customs. So I’m really happy that I didn’t go with Denimios advice and go with a 32. Inoue thought a 31 would fit so that’s what I went with. They’ve gone through a hot soak, a 40c wash on hand wash program and a 50c wash and I’m still swimming in them. Waist is ok though so I think I’m sticking to these and leave the lvc ‘47s on the shelve.

    Emailed Inoue-san Friday regarding my TCB60’s but no answer yet. We’ll see when they’ll arrive. In case they don’t fit i started on a pair of LVC ‘47’s today. One hot soak and a 40C wash.

    Thanks @MJF9 I’ll try to get some pics up in the UES thread. Got some in a indigo specialty store (can’t remember the name) and some in a huge department store, both of which are in Tokyo. I have 4 shades of indigo and one white roll. If you aren’t in Tokyo you can find some that look good on Etsy.
