  1. Ok @adii as no one has answered, the now defunked rugby line of Ralph Lauren has really long sleeves. I’ve got a few flannels from that line. They’re good quality and if you search ebay you’ll find some.

    One of the button holes in the fly was unraveling so had to mend it. I think I’m at 4 40C washes at this point. Roping is getting really good and some points of fading is viable for sure. Knees, whiskers and some button impressions on the fly.

    Just won a pair of Hawaii’s in one wash for €40 on Swedish ebay. They’re a W32 which usually is a tad big a waist size for me. Does anyone have any idea if they’ll shrink more with subsequent washing?

    My phone was digging through the left pocket bag. Used some indigo dyed fabric and thread. I usually make quite a few stitches at a time with the needle so as to get a neat, straight row but the fabric is so thick and densely weaved that I just managed 2 stitches before pulling the thread through. Looks ok anyways I guess.

    At what temps do you wash and do you use a dryer @mandel9000? iIf you don’t mind me asking of course? Secrets of the trade and all that. I wouldn’t mind that level of puckering and scruchiness you’ve got going on there you see!

    As per usuals I’ve already gotten a hole in one of my pocket bags. My left one which is wabash. I thought it felt kinda sturdy but alas, I was wrong. Gotta get that needle and thread out.
  8. @Dan_F another tip is la labourer. I’ve got their suspenders myself and can recommend them. Very sturdy construction at a fair price. https://lelaboureur.se/accessoarer/hangslen-stroppar

    Selling our house and had to tend to some issues with the roof. Nearly a case of “it’s easy to get up and hard to go down” but managed after a while. Jeans starting to show some signs of fading and the fabric is starting to show some irregularities.

    How many washes are you at and at what temps? Do love me some leg twist but mine has barely started to migrate forward. I’ve just done a 40c and a 30c on my OW pair mind.

    Did my second wash yesterday (if you count the initial wash to get some residual shrinkage out of my OW pair). Did a 30C one. Some more roping developed at hem, yoke and coin pocket. Some light fading. First pic is prewash.

    Found this Lee homage online. Looks like it’s unwashed/unsoaked to me and was wondering if anyone know how much it’ll shrink. It’s an Orrizonti era piece of that helps.

    Thanks for that @aho had a quick look online but couldn’t find any reviews and trust your judgment.
