    Shoes that look better with age...

    agreeing with this... @SuperJackle that looks pretty unacceptable - might take it from a lower price point, but not from the mid / higher end... @spidereye - yesyesyes for the vintage find! top work! @hurhur ... I never knew raw horsehide would be so appealing...

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    be not afeared to wash wash wash! I've been pushed off the jawns with a return of humid shorts weather and such... [so lagging behind you top posting blaggards, and a long way from getting near water...] but to repeat... tcb fabric and washing are good friends, partners, even... [+ @diggers - enjoying very much the black vans with no hem: have been thinking that option through: great to see it in action!]

    Tender Co. Denim

    looking good: confirming: the material is thiiiick... I imagine the factory that makes tender has some real heavy duty machines to deal with it!

    welcome back in! looks much more accommodating! that looks like a good cuff to me... hella yes... tcb rise is astronomical ... and yes: they are def. different beasts... as to the lvc stitching etc.; there are bits I love (beyond the denim, the bottom part of their pockets, the chainstitch), other bits less so (the infamous tiny pockets, the overly slim thighs on this version of the '44 ... ) - but yesyesyes both lvc and tcb def. pay good close attention to the denim difference between their models... would def love to see if other have other wartime models by Osaka 5 /or other/ to directly compare with their s40s [of particular interest, cut of leg, approaches to v stitch, bartacking and hardware ] ... & @Foxy2 - very smart looking mechanic gear!

    Superdenim Specific Music Meta Thread...

    wandering across the internet, came across this laughed lotz got me to this money music collision... swans vs. 100 gecs (as peak 2019 post-royal trux meets post-Michael Bay auto-tune wreckage aesthetics...)

    Chore coats

    @MJF9 - keep up the resistance... no paperwork on this, but I reckon in the realm of 10 oz - not heavy... mine is a 38 ... I had a choice between that and something like a 44 which was immense in terms of arm length etc. in lvc I wear 44 jackets no prob, a 4 in orslow jackets, an xl in post overalls (so around 3 tag size smaller than usual! my issue is generally shoulder width, so the raglan construction is what makes it possible [along with extreme arm length and general generous p-2-p width]: note, it is quite short, esp. at the back... a 40 in this model would have been perfect, but perfection is a fleeting thing, best found in embracing what is charming within imperfection)

    Chore coats

    here ya go... nothing much fade wise, certainly nothing compared to their IG example... it does respond well to a good old wash though... imo a really well considered piece; smokes most of my other chores in terms of fabric, stitching and pattern / shape - it is a very nuanced garment that is incredibly easy to wear (as both functional and comfortable) ...

    hoping all those affected by fires can stay safe! compared back pockets to other tcb models, now comparing elements of my 38 s40s with my cone 36w-34l LVC '44 [would love to see other comparisons with other war models by those who have them...] basic profile: tcb (on right) def has longer rise (front and back) with lvc (on left) having much trimmer thigh... back pocket shape... (lvc-left, tcb-right) patch and yoke stitching [tcb stays all lemon yellow, lvc going for two tone in parts...] coin pocket (lvc-left, tcb-right) buttons and v-stitch (lvc-left, tcb-right) inside fly (lvc-left, tcb-right) chainstitch / hem (lvc-top, tcb-bottom) selvedge again, but also to get a sense of the different denims and their relative weaves ... [the tcb is chunky and sandpaper-ish with residual starch, cone smoooooth...] (tcb-left, lvc-right) waistband (out and in) (tcb-top, lvc-bottom) (lvc-top, tcb-bottom) and finally, different approaches to bartacking... (lvc-left, tcb-right) - one of my favourite differences... (along with the chunky stitching tcb is doing on the fly...)

    in that regard I've started wearing my belts to the left of the central loops ... a pleasing asymmetry ... plus lots of pix of this and discussion on the subject here if you remember ...

    and with less layers of remediation, but with more layers of clothing... an old set up returns, with a lotta cuff...
