  1. Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    Thanks for the info, Kiya. After thinking about it, I think I like the red version more, but I can't seem to locate it on your website! Would you be able to provide a link or will it be up soon? Thanks!
  2. Warehouse

    Ahhhh whoops, I automatically made the assumption he was referring to the Duck Digger models and forgot about the non-DD jeans. Thanks for the extra info!
  3. Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    Hey Kiya, I saw last week in your Instagram story that you will be stocking some new IH shirts. I was wondering whether the IHSH-203-GRN will be available for purchase or will it just be the red one that I saw? Thanks!
  4. Warehouse

    The 1003SXX is like your typical jeans with WW2 detailing such as no rivets on the coin pocket, olive herringbone pocket bags, and laurel leaf buttons. The standard model has no arcs whatsoever, but the limited model of the 1003SXX is the one that has the painted Levi's arcs. I think you can consider the 1003XX to be a hybrid of the 1003SXX and 1001XX as it shares the same 14.5 oz denim and pocket bags as the 1003SXX, but also has the double-stitched arcs, coin pocket rivets, and regular Warehouse-branded buttons. I'm not too sure how their shapes differ from one another...
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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)?
  9. 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)!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
