  1. Watches and Denim

    Are you a 6.0 inch? I’m a 6.1/8 and debating with myself if my wrist is to small for a SKX007. There are no ADs in my area so trying on before buying is a no. I want the 007 and plan on getting a super jubelie for it, maybe modding it down the line or buying a mod I fancy from the get go. I’m partial to applied indices so that might be the way to go. Either that or a SKX013.

    Watch my daughter playing on the playground. Vintage Stan’s Stuff down vest, lnverallan indigo cotton knit, studio d’artisan chambray, tcb60’s.
  3. TCB

    I really like naoharu5s train tracks. I think I’m going to try the spray starch and dryer for my next wash of my 60’s. I’ll get back with a full review.
  4. Waywt 2018 (denim version)

    Thanks @volvo240thebest! Nice kitchen (and Lee overalls)! Got the hoodie from Mr.Lofgren himself over Ebay. My only gripe with it is that the hood itself is quite small but being a repro I guess that’s how they where made way back when.

    Not that much happening here. Fade, fade, fade. Snow, snow, snow.
  6. Waywt 2018 (denim version)

    I thought spring would have sprung by now but it’s still snowing here. Ebbets field, vintage Spiewak golden fleece, Russel southern by John Lofgren, Sugar cane, TCB 60s, Redwing.
  7. Both a wash and a soak will give you some roping. For me it usually takes about 3-4 trips through water to get the roping settled. If you dare or know exactly how much they will shrink, hem as soon as possible. If you don’t know how much they’ll shrink and hem after all the shrink is out its not the end of the world. The roping fade usually catches up.
  8. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Does anyone know If lvc always put the “correct” label on their tops? I’ve got a few tshirt and sweatshirt with period correct neck labels but now I’ve found an auction for this sweatshirt which has a label that just reads “Reproduction by Levi’s vintage clothing” on it. It also has a big NOW! On the front. Does anyone know if this might be an early repro?
  9. Lee 101z from their since long defunct Gold label. Worn a lot and washed maybe every 5 months. Love the fit and how they turned out. Will have to get some kind of Lee repro after the DWC is over. Mostly hand stitched repairs but the left knee and crotch i repaired with a sowing machine. Not much hair left on the hair-on-hide patch.

    Have these been one washed? You’ve got some nice whiskers going there!
  11. Has anyone had any experience with fabric degradation by rusting rivets and the like? I had a Nudie tshirt that I hung up to dry with clothespins. After it dried there where some rust spots from them. Fast forward a year or so and there where holes where the rust spots once where.
  12. Evisu is still loved!

    Thanks! Yeah i saw the inseam, its actually a perfect length for me. Just wish it was hemmed with a chainstitch.
  13. Evisu is still loved!

    I’ve stumbled upon a pair of Evisu heritage jeans. Painted red tab but otherwise unadorned back pockets. The seller didn’t know much more. Does anyone know what fit they are and if they have potential? I read somewhere that they’re supposed to be a Levi’s homage but they don’t seem to be stf.
  14. Sprogs, nippers, bambinos: pint-sized denim

    I’ve got a 2,5year old and another on the way. Also been stockpiling a bit. Nothing as fancy as Levi’s from the 50’s or MIJ jeans but sometimes you can get Acne selvedge jeans for kids quite cheap here in Sweden. Here’s Ingrids collection so far. The first jeans is a size 2 and the second a size 3. They’re in a white line selvedge. Quite nice. Last two are of a redline selvedge and are much darker and not as nice in my opinion. They’re a size 4. Detail: Mended these when I got them.
  15. Denim Repair

    The TCB 60s I’m wearing for DWC2 needed some TLC where my phone was eating through the pocket bag. Attached an antique Japanese indigo dyed fabric with indigo dyed sashiko thread. Flipped it up and sowed another row. Selvedge on the left so just one row of stitches there. Finished. Some extra fading potential that just me (and you guys) will see.
