    Pease park? ^ Champion reverse weave, Denime, wallabees
  2. Hmm are you guys on chrome? Did it say anything about a certificate expired or cannot verify identity? I saw no such thing on safari but I think when the certificate really is stale chrome makes it look much scarier.

    @Iron Horse those Lofgrens look beautiful. I'm torn about them vs other boondockers because I'm afraid they won't flatter a wide foot. I'd hate to have them stretch out in an unsightly manner. Do they run narrow at all?
  4. So I've been considering getting myself an actual nice pair of boondockers... I love the look of the John Lofgren M-43. They're perfect, only thing is they have the sort of "slim" look to them that make me very certain my wide platypus feet would hang far far over the edge of the shoe. Even when I wear "chunky" shoes, like my Redwing 875, a crease develops along the inside curve of the foot where the leather is pulled outwards to give way. Sorry to drop these unsolicited nightmare fuel pics here but you can see what I mean when I say I spill over the edges of my shoes. In the middle picture you can see the leather has been pulled far out to the side. I thought maybe Viberg Boondockers (2045 last) or the Real Mccoy N-1 field shoes (if I can even find where to buy a pair) would be chunky enough to fit my wide feet but then I think to myself, for that much $$$ don't you want to pick the boots that look the best? The big deal for me isn't comfort or having to size up. Its having the whole shoe look deflated or as if someone had flattened it like a pancake. Believe me, I could wear virtually any size and the sole would never be wide enough for my feet not to "spill" over. Don't really know what I'm asking here. I guess its basically, should I get the Viberg Boondocker 2045/RMC N-1 because they look chunky enough for my feet or the John Lofgren ones because they look the best? Alternatively, I guess this directed at anyone with wide feet to share their experiences/opinions with these or any other boot brands.
  5. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I believe your second link is all one wash as well
  6. Warehouse

    Only pair of warehouse I've ever owned but the denim has this really nice blue color to it even before breaking them in which is a nice change from all my really dark jeans, like LVC 66. I suspect they'll have the best vintage color of all my pairs though only time will tell. The texture is quite nice though you'll only know up close, fine with me. Love the nep as well. Possibly my favorite fabric that I own.

    Unfortunately I didn't do presoak measurements but as soon as I get my measuring tape back I'll throw up some measurements. I sized up just in case but even though the top block is a bit loose the silhouette is very clean and trim. I suppose in the way lvc 47s are slim tho I've never owned a pair. Since I got them at hinoya they offered to chain stitch them for 10 bucks. A woman working there suggested I leave three inches for shrinkage but unfortunately they only shrank two. Not a huge deal though. Lots of loose threads around the jeans too, I wonder if that's part of the WWII detailing. Here's some sucky pics in the meantime. Bigger album: https://imgur.com/a/Doh1z
  8. Shoes that look better with age...

    Haven't figured out how to incorporate these into my style but at $15 from Goodwill I couldn't say no. Doc Marten 3989 in really good condition. They were just extremely dusty when I got them-- couldn't even make out the yellow stitching. The 'before' picture is already after brushing off all the dust though. After some mink oil: Album with more pics if anyone is interested. https://imgur.com/a/WDuWo
  9. Direct upload still not working on Chrome/Safari on my MacBook when I tried with a 4.3 mb image and a 1.8 mb image. The screenshot I took of the error message is 216 kb and I was able to successfully upload directly.
  10. Watches and Denim

    Just for laughs... spotted this in Lemon while I was in Ginza. I have more pictures of the watches they had if anyone is interested.
  11. Watches and Denim

    So much Seiko love made me want to spontaneously drop a pic of my '74 King Seiko.... sorry I don't have any better pics on hand (wrist? wow thats terrible).
  12. What are your jeans doing today?

    Late upload... can't direct upload to sufu anymore, hmm. LVC 66 in action at Osaka Castle.
  13. Where do you guys find Japanese fit inspo? I'm interested in American Leisure (is that the word?) style... jeans, military jackets, loafers/wingtips, boots, sweatshirts, oxford shirts, that sort of vibe. Open to insta accounts, magazines, whatever. Something along these lines: and Mr. Hayashi's impeccable style: http://www.resolute.jp/style.html
  14. Warehouse

    Picked up a pair of Hinoya x Warehouse 1003xx in Ueno a two weeks ago... I should throw up some pics sometime. Anyone know how much the denim shrinks over time? They're still a bit loose after two soaks.
  15. Going to Japan in a week! Luckily there's plenty of cool shopping recs posted all around superdenim but I'd love to hear any normal recommendations from you guys. Food, places, overrated destinations, general musings... fire away!
