    Just to update on post-wash measurements of the Lot 1082 trousers. I soaked them in some hot water, rinsed them in the washing machine and then dried them in the dryer. Size 31 btw... Waist 40.5cm -> 40cm Front rise 29.25cm -> 28cm Back rise 38cm -> 36.5cm Thigh 33cm -> 33cm Knee 25.75cm -> 25.5cm Hem 22cm -> 22cm Inseam 86.75cm -> 82.25cm The trousers basically shrank most noticeably in the length as opposed to the width, which was pretty negligible. The back rise is quite a bit shorter than what I usually wear, but it's not actually uncomfortable. My guess is that the back rise will stretch a teeny bit when I wear it with my belt. I think that the width of the legs somehow make the shorter back rise more manageable to wear. Maybe some pictures next week when I get a break from uni work!

    Hey all, haven't been on sufu for a while, but recently bought some chino trousers in green. They're unwashed and should shrink a bit (I'll post again once I've done it). The current measurements for the size 31 are: Waist 40.5cm Front rise 29.25cm Back rise 38cm Thigh 33cm Knee 25.75cm Hem 22cm Inseam 86.75cm Hopefully some better pictures to come... Including a fit photo.
  3. Just a quick question for those that wear chino trousers. Do you prefer buttons or a zip?

    There are some new pictures up on their Instagram profile where the dye looks less patchy and more even. It could be due to the lighting, but I wonder whether you'd be able to request one that's the least distressed looking out of the lot. Dye distribution along the lines of the jackets you see on Leather & Things Motor's Instagram would be preferable.

    A couple more photos of the leather jacket. The overall cut and shape of the pockets look nice, but I'm not sure if the dye looks too uneven for my liking...

    From this post, larger sizes should be showing up this season. I believe @kicks79 works at Big Trouble Store in Sydney, which is a stockist of LVC, so I guess he's got a bit of the inside scoop. It was presumed that only the 1947 and 1954 cuts were going to return for the SS19 season, but we should be in luck! I'm not sure if the SS19 lookbook will be able to shed some light if anyone has been able to get theirs hands on one...

    If that's a jacket that's coming out in the same fit as the new Cossack jacket then my wallet better watch out!

    Saw these 1966s on Heddels a little while ago. They're not mine, but I thought they were worth a share here!

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Veja is also rather well-known and popular these days because Meghan Markle has been seen wearing them. They do look rather nice, and I agree that they look similar to some New Balance sneakers I've seen, albeit cleaner/sleeker.

    Very nice! The sleeve length seems to be rather short though...

    From what I've seen, a lot of stores/brands generally measure the knee 13" to 14" from the crotch. Having a standard usually causes less confusion. A person's knee is obviously not going to be at the same position for everyone, but the knee measurement is still useful in deducing how straight/tapered a pair of pants is especially if you've been given the thigh and hem measurements. Also, standardising the knee measurement based on inseam length wouldn't be a good idea because it will most likely confuse/deter people, especially newer customers that are unfamiliar with your measuring procedures. People also wear their jeans differently, e.g., closer to their natural waist as opposed to hanging on the hips, so having the same inseam length as someone else won't mean the knee will be in the same position.

    I haven't spoken with them in regards to hemming, but I have contacted them via their "contact us" link to ask about the knee width of a pair of jeans. They should be able to tell you where to leave a note in regards to hemming. My assumption would be to leave a comment in the order form, but my suggestion would be to contact them first saying that you're an overseas customer and would like to have your jeans hemmed (use basic English). They were quite fast in preparing my order and packing it, so it would be better to ask beforehand.

    I always thought the white tab was quite pleasant, so that's a shame that they'll be disappearing. In my opinion, tabs only look nice in the “normal” position as opposed to anywhere else. I'm assuming this ban also includes placing it on the bottom right corner of the back pocket?

    Hey @rodeo bill, I noticed on your Instagram that you put links to your products in the comments of your posts. I think if you make it a business account, you should be able to tag products (i.e. like tagging a profile in a picture). Should be easier for your followers to get linked directly to your products as I don't believe users can copy/paste comment text!

    What do you mean by this? I agree that the buttons are notified fantastic.
