  1. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Sneak peek of something I recently ordered. It's not Resolute, but it is by HDO (Hayashi Design Office)!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!

    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.

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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

    Hey mate, I measured the inseam, and it's about 78cm. There is probably less stacking on my pair because long legs + mid rise + hiking up my pants = less break.
  12. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Oh yeah, here are some extra photos of the colour of my '76s. It was definitely a sunny day, so the denim is not actually that light in-person. I need to get some repairs done as the inseam near the hem is coming undone from constant cuffing + friction. Also the crotch could do with a bit of a reinforcement. I've been hearing some people saying that the raw measurements are on the smaller side, but I didn't find that that was the case with mine. However, if I were to get another pair, I'd go with maybe a 32/34 or 33/34 just because I like looser fits these days. @ushokmwn I'll measure the inseam tonight for you. I do have long legs for my height, and the following picture was me in my prime.

    Some have requested fit pictures of me in my '76s, so here they are. Sorry for the bad lighting, but hopefully you get the general idea. I am approximately 170cm/72kg, and am wearing a size 31/34. My first time wearing these since like September of 2017. (Yes, I'm wearing Crocs haha)
  14. Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Does Standard & Strange offer hemming?
  15. Yeah, I went on the international site where it was already translated, but I couldn't understand what it was referring to... Ended up trying the Japanese site and using other online translators to see if it came up with something I could understand. It ended up saying the following on global Rakuten: デニム永久保障の要不要 = Unnecessary of the denim eternal security required 付けない(BEARS '印を押さない)= I do not attach it (I do not push the BEARS' mark) 付ける(BEARS '印を押す)= Attach (I push the BEARS' mark) I guess I'll choose the first option, so thanks for your input!
