  1. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Nigel Cabourn has some new sneakers that look nice. I quite like the second colourway, but I already have some PF Flyers in a similar colourway.
  2. Denim Stores In Australia

    I've only been there a few times, but I've found the customer service to be rather poor (borderline rude). The last time I went there was some time last year... Other people seem to have a good time there, so your mileage may vary.
  3. Full Count Denim Thread

    We probably have a different gauge of what feels tight, but visually, they look like they're vacuum packed onto your legs... Moose knuckles are definitely evident as well.

    It's most likely the same denim as the regular DD-1003SXX considering they have the same lot number and year (1943). The pictures make them look like a different shade, but I think it's just the lighting. Too bad the arcs aren't solid in colour, but I understand why that may cause an issue... That western shirt looks rather nice as well. On a slightly different note, does anyone know of they have any plans of restocking the DD-1004XX (1922 model)?
  5. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I realise I haven't posted any pics of the jacket, but it's starting to develop some fading. Also, my 711s (not pictured) are travelling along quite nicely. I think my second hot wash made the colour rather light, so fades are not obvious. I got the size 32/32, which in hindsight is a bit too short for winter boots, but they're great for sneakers. I'm thinking about grabbing a size 32/36 for the colder weather! By the way, the back rise stretches a fair amount, so to those looking at online measurements, don't be too worried!

    Sneak peek of something I recently ordered. It's not Resolute, but it is by HDO (Hayashi Design Office)!
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    I've recently been into brands such as John Lofgren, Moto, and Alden, but these Red Wings caught my eye. They're the 1930s Sport Oxford, and they're probably the most attractive shoe I've seen from them in a while. The black version is the 8070, and the brown is the 8071. I may need to cop.
  8. DWC2 - Photo Updates Thread

    Posted this in the LVC thread, but thought I'd post this here as well. I'm no longer wearing these daily, but rather 3-4 times a week. Probably means I won't need to wash them too frequently! The seam puckering and roping are surprisingly nice.
  9. Denim Stores In Australia

    I've heard that they'll be stocking CSF jeans as well... Not sure which models though, but would be cool to have a look at them in-person.
  10. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    @Maynard Friedman My immediate response is to say the 1966 jeans. I think the denim is more comfortable to wear when the weather is hot, and I like the lighter colour. The fact that I haven't worn my 1976 jeans in a while may have also influenced this decision haha! @bod So far, they feel the same fit-wise. They're a little bit tight, but they don't feel any tighter than after its previous wash (machine with no dryer). I might measure the inseam later to see if it has gotten shorter, but what I have noticed is that the left leg has twisted a bit more; at times, the outseam is very close to the centre of my knee!
  11. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Washed my 1966 jeans again and did a tumble dry. They're quite light in colour, and I'm aiming for some low contrast fades that are vintage-esque. For the last month, I've only been wearing them around 3-4 times a week.

    Is LVC adding the 1937 501 back to their lineup? You can see the sign in the background, and the tag next to the patch is like the one you find on the current run of jeans.
  13. Bowery Blue Makers - NYC

    Very nice jacket, and the fit is great on you. I really like the details of the triple pleat, and I may need to look for another one since I feel like my LVC jacket is a bit too tight. Although the buttons are just standard looking laurel leaf ones, no doubt that are of better quality than the ones found on the LVC version.
  14. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    As requested, here are some fit pictures with my sweatshirt pulled up so you can see where they sit. I'm really happy with how loose these jeans are, and I ended up doing an extra wash + tumble dry before wearing them. The left leg's outseam twisted a little more and the roping is more pronounced, but I have yet to do post-wash measurements (so I'm unsure if they've shrunken more). The length is typically shorter than most of my jeans, but I kinda wanted a loose-fitting pair where I could do a small single cuff with sneakers.
  15. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Hello everyone, I just bought a Resolute 711 jean, so I thought I'd share some pictures and quick measurements. I actually got this pair signed by Hayashi-san himself when he visited BEARS' in Tokyo. They're a size 32/32 in one-wash; however, I may give it another quick wash and tumble dry before wearing them. The denim is nice and hairy, and I'm pleasantly surprised that the back rise is not too low for me. These don't feature the dramatic leg twist, but I'm sure that'll gradually happen with subsequent washes. Waist 40cm Front rise 27.75cm Back rise 37cm Thigh 32.75cm Knee 24.75cm Hem 22.5cm Inseam 76cm
