    Good start to the thread people, I'll have to transfer/update the denimbro camberwell gentrification edition (was in Peckham Rye on new year day: hipster dad in bowler hat spotted, no jks) @oomslokop sorry to see the flooding; glad you got an easier ride with it; re: climate change realness, nice to know our world leaders are really looking out for the planet as they remotely bomb each other for distraction...

    New Contest Suggestion [Poll]

    Sounds good. I know lots has been spoken of in terms of banner denim for wh: I would really support trying out the new denim for the dd-1003xx 1946 model if it comes back... https://www.ware-house.co.jp/?pid=137031000

    happy hols y'all any possibility of a warehouse contest seems dead in the grass for what is around right now: I feel tender is most sufu worthy aka least contest historical precedents etc with best product and available supplier my barrier to tender contest is simply that is what I am wearing at the present moment, i.e. at current moment have an 18 month plan (contract) of wear to a 132 right now from which I am loath to deviate (and would, for entirely selfish reasons, most like to wear alongside a hyper vintage '47 warehouse cut)... ... would advise 129 as the general interest model - and yes: it is the square pockets that makes them: great jeans, great denim, great brutally simple design would most likely watch rather than join a roy event: happily raising a glass of cheer

    indeed: in reality I think it is at least a year wait for anything to really get going... maynard's 'bring yer own' is best solution for immediate fade showdown IMO patiently waiting; no news is never bad news... @Iron Horse thanks for the fabrics etc. I have no desire to make a poll, but I think it stands at something like ::::: For immediate action for those interested (i.e. in 1/3/6 months time for a year?): 1. bring yer own free for all 2. osaka 5 bring yer own 3. all of one brand's fabric but different cuts... For a year or so's time: see what bubbles up from either wh, d-ba, boncoura or tender and as added extra yes please Iron Horse shirt... does that cover it?

    waiting to see if @Bobbo & co. bring anything back from warehouse conversations pls. def. contender... really like their work: sewing, dyeing and material is superb edit: are the alpha shadows boys still the only non-japan link (strangely I may know a way into their loop?) really would like something like the cinch back [yeh yeh we know I idiot] - but this does feels strange mix of lee (cinch placement) and levis (back pocket construction) https://www.alphashadows.com/latest-arrivals/boncoura-cinch-back-denim but my aim for contest: variations on '37 or '44/'46 (warehouse new denim) remains... and @Iron Horse zip front shirt omg yes pls... (with a tuckable 20" shoulder option?)

    Black jeans lovers!!!

    indeed: sufu calling @MasonAlexander... would seem that the Dawson wide tapered is still pretty goddamn wide... @Foxy2 is the other personage with Dawson experience; but not black...

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    rambled on this some years back about someone's Pecos: two classical perspectives Sappho - what is beautiful is what you love Plato - beauty is proportional Proportionally speaking that fit looks good, but maybe/perhaps a swerve towards the tight. But: do you love the way it feels? Are you able to move? cuffs / wrist ratio looks good but I always go by shoulder seam (which looks like it could go either way) My guess is you think it is too small which is why you are asking, but a size bigger may drown; such is the worry? I personally go down the Sapphic route: go with what you love (be that tight or baggy)
