    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    fwiw my '55 lvc raw (made Bulgaria, Japanese denim) at w.36 hot rinsed, drip dried and then worn some come out at 47cm / 37 inches waist... [not yet hot machine washed, tho...]

    and you with boots, sirrah: the attractions you wore are a phenomenon... hope all goes well for you as the world re-opens...!!!

    ryo's sizing is perfect in this instance imo... for under layers on such volumous beauts in the colder months I do also like a good m-65 thermal-trouser...

  5. Hey! With silk wash, gentle whisper of a spin, line dry; No shrink or mis-shaping from the fabric, maybe the beginning of a clench (but not yet a pucker) of stitching... All this being said, the fabric print I have is the mackintosh ukulele; so slightly slacker-spongebob-psychedelia feeling which would benefit rather than suffer from a wrinkle and a crumple in the long run; for the more precisely pattern matched, highly technical prints (the hyper technical onagadori, the land of aloha, the kimono rayon silk crepe) or the more minimal (ie the duke's pineapple) I can see the need to keep fabric in mint condition... keeping it away from high heats of tumble dryer would be pretty important imo... [but, not a natural rayon expert...]
  6. very nice @MJF9 ... very nice indeed ... the sun surf rayon I have I machine wash as silk ie very gentle [whereas the label says dry clean only, but that is a command I cannot obey...] [have been looking through the lightning Aloha Shirt edition ... and this episode of clutch man tv has excellent visit to museum with vintage pieces on show and discussion of fabric and more ... check the picture of John Meigs at 7.11 for old school version of how to wear it ...]

    sorry to hear smock a no-go... less technical advice than above... but a potted history of the product shot in pics to get an eye for things? how to shoot things? thinking about where to place and light things...? Spanish still life of 1600s - invented a particular non-space and concentration on the object itself... (something similar happens in Holland too at this time...); Juan Sánchez Cotán and Francisco de Zurburan back to 20th century when Robert Mapplethorpe wasn't doing hardcore s&m portraits he did a mean flower... Walker Evans' photo-story on tools in the 50s gets to the joy of simple things... [note the attention to tonality of background in backgrounds here... it can work with the object or go into other directions...] Hugo P. Herdeg's 1940s lightswitch gets a bit of dynamism and two-tone going on... whilst Paul Outerbridge does a lot with shape and form in the 1920s... a favourite of the current moment is Sheltens & Abbenes... I've posted on their re-doing of the flat-lay before... a 2021 version basically no one way to skin the cat; but practice makes perfect and context makes the object 'become' itself...

    feck demands: all that is needed is fitting shoulders; that one is covered; yr golden as they say on sufu... play on... [that being said a neatly done up fresh denim type 1 collar works a marvel on zoom call sharpness 101...]

    looking nice... & never apologise for your pix... but do be aware of what natural light can do; you'd be amazed what a window sill can achieve as the support for detail shots ... [and what shooting outside with a contrasting background can do for a fit shot]
