    settling on post comp pair is sending me a little crazy... imma mostly oscillating between the slimness of recent lvc '44 and a vintage vestbak oshkosh

    ^ lol! and then ... @Paul T asked where the pair now goes: answer at this end: into the vault (a suitcase in the bottom of a cupboard...) ... lots of wear left, but now a nice step in the line of 'first jean' / 1890 / 1915 / 201 / 1920s... plus a comparison of 50s and 20s fades for jollies... (whatever visual similarity is lost when felt in hand: 50s very solid, 20s very supple...)

    looks like he had detached it from the returned pair but never attached to the second round pair ... a great pair btw @Foxy2

    sounds good @volvo240thebest and agreeing: @FreeCharlesManson ... I can't see them either... and from what I remember they were strong contenders... try uploading to imgur and sharing links from there... [best way to put un-mushed pix for final pix... use the 'huge thumbnails' option]

    and where are the submissions for @Foxy2 and @aho??? [even if not wanting to compete, for completion in thread of all types of wear and washing, it would be great to see...]

    ^ agreeing: a great pair, still reckon mine have a year left in them, but for now trying to come to terms with 'normal fit' jeans (straight leg at the actual right waist size without huge hem or all the extra hardware...) ... and the loss of the pockets is a great pity, but Im real glad we got the chance for a second round... so thanks to everyone for their great company, thanks to the mighty @volvo240thebest for sorting all this out and to the inimitable @Bobbo for kicking off the world tour all this time ago! its been a journey

    +1 yes both! [have to admit, if it did occur 1901 would be the first of new versions to review... but rlly wondering what they have done to new version of '44]

    thanks dear sir! the Mocs are pretty hardcore for wearing; super thick leather, really resistant form of suede and good soles; like the clark wallabee on steroids... have been looking at yuketen for long time, rm seem way more brutal yet more constructed... in terms of dates, I remember this post [below] from earlier in the year... I could go to end of month but feel that the time of thread closure is coming... my thoughts were that jury of tcb & signet staff would be good to honour both sufu and IG contestants (& following tcb IG getting pretty good indication of the pairs he is following... with good reason)
