    only able to confirm that the rumour was around already in Jan on denimbro... tbh: if this is their return to the triple pleat, I find it hard to shed a tear... [lacklustre pre-distressing, oversized and imbalancing pocket w. flaps, aghast I say!]

    these... stf non-selvedge 501xx, bought in nyc same time as flat eric was beating the tv waves back in '99 ... after that it was all 1870s lvc and evisu; but this pair was the thin edge of the wedge...

    calling @crownzip over to this thread... for me; nothing special, a x-post; but staying with the volumes for wintery feels m-65 / tcb / stan ray / tender / timberland

    no bragging right fades here, but been wearing this pair of 132 from raw for a good while between various other rotations... starting to get results... lovely slow burner; enjoying the multi blues of the standard denim dye very much...

    a cross thread jump: from the warehouse / signet grief discussion; I realised I missed a lot on pg.293 of this thread! So sending late internet good vibrations to your children @AlientoyWorkmachine & @shredwin_206 sending condolences to @Dr_Heech; a sudden death is less painful for the afflicted but can cause so much shock for those left behind; my thoughts are with you... in terms of, same page, @Double 0 Soul; yes yes yes to Mark Fisher re: end of change in decades; I asked him to be my external examiner for PhD back in 2014 or so; a very generous examiner he was... the world is much sadder place without his insight (and David Graeber's for that matter ...)

    WAYWT 2023 [Denim Edition]

    thanks @AlientoyWorkmachine... love the perfecto, but is harder to wear inside with all its hardware, whilst the a2 is designed for sitting in a structure, and the collar has a lot going for it... American presidents of all ilk get shoved in them so they never quite have the bad-boy-Brando hang over even with the McQueen hauntology... plus the Adam Driver recent prosthetic tubby Netflix outing takes the cinematic machismo sting out of them... the flight jacket thread has pretty much all info needed on them, but to repeat: acme depot is great resource on different aspects of the contracts issued in their lifetime, Goodwear is the Roy of a2 world... and a trim fit that I like that, crease wise, shows how tight they can be in the armpit is this YouTube wearer... plus, yes; this is a good, albeit more conventional bad-boy, a2-chambray-moc-toe outing that never gets as much internet forum time as Jimmy Stewart etc...

    yup... how is the duck canvas? the seam crinkles already drip with umami...

    not a huge watch wearer; but a family heirloom has made it's way to the wrist... an alpina from a way back...

    agreeing... @unders the jacket is swell! i am living in this a2 right now; never been a fan of the military-pride associations of it, but now wearing it, feeling the grandpa tracksuit vibes much more; easy wearing inside and out; a proper desk warrior jacket... aero-orslow-tcb-cheaney aero-jelado-tcb-timbos

    ^ this... picture perfect doesn't mean ability to move arms or tie shoelaces... it looks lovely, and very trim fit if that is what you are looking for... [the s40s tcb jacket I have is around 48 to get volume out of their tubular habit of cutting, but the extra arm length on the type 1 can be folded; less adaptability on the arm/cuffs of these...] it fits with your over jackets / way of wearing... but size up if you want a denim jacket under it I think...

    the true horror is when looking in hinoya and the regular lvc costs more for the Japanese customer than pairs of Warehouse being sold for c.280 in UK brick and mortar stores ...........
