    both yes... very yes... so very very yes in fact... will there be any indigo left? a thread left at the knee? and a shout out to uncannily but understandably silent @volvo240thebest - hope things keeping well your end of things...

    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...]

    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...

  7. 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...]
  8. 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...]

    Warehouse

    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]

    TCB

    hey my 50 cents (don't own tcb overalls, but do love a dungaree): strap design on tabby is accurate to 50s strap back designs; and re; the back buttons - whilst adding matter to the back flow it is more functional than you think [ie you can undo the back buttons, making them more like trousers] - great selection of tabby fits by sweetsue here ... wrecking crew has great front chest pockets, handyman I would get in hickory to mitigate /dazzle out the extra apron pockets... [from experience; the tcb hickory material seems pretty thick and has a wider stripe than other brands I have in hand - orslow and vintage Oshkosh] of the two: I think wrecking crew has the edge... for more refrance: kirayamaworks ig has lots of examples of one and the other... sizing; go large or go home [aka get normal tag size...]: nothing worse than tight overalls ...
  23. In UK I go to this place in store [Covent Garden store the recommend] and rummage [generally going for raw silk ones for comfort] ... they seem to have pretty good online offering these days: this one, for example; a claim as made in Hawaii, rayon, wooden buttons, not a bank breaker... https://www.rokit.co.uk/vintage-two-palms-hawaiian-shirt-m also recently branched out and got a sun surf via hinoya, in a bulk order of 3 items it ended up about 60% of the price as compared to UK bricks and mortar sun surf suppliers... fyi: a similar model to the above, perhaps with an homage to @Duke Mantee... https://hinoya.shop/collections/sun-surf/products/dk37811 edit: thrift stores in UK mostly just Primark these days, so hope of finding a good Hawaiian shirt there pretty minimal... do update if you do find good ones up in the Pacific Northwest!
