    Sugar Cane Denim

    ^ This is the first time I'm looking these up, the model number's throwing me off a bit—a 1 for the second digit should mean that they're made from standard cotton denim, not mixed fabric. Seems like they've been sticking to that for a pretty long time. Going with the 7xx lot number for a weird pair of jeans at least matches up well with the old Oki Rainbows. Go figure?

    Nope, no advice there. Sadly, Toyo's website is pretty useless for anything beyond linking to the current catalog.

    I think the '30s jeans and jacket in that fabric were from last year and the '40s jeans (incl. the slimmed-down version) and '50s jacket were from this most recent year The fabric hasn't been around for more than a year and change

    Great info, thanks. Seems like the XL will probably be the way to go, just to be safe.

    ^ The 303 was meant to be a '37 model and the 304 a '47. I know Sugar Cane's cuts aren't very repro-specific, but there should still be some differences accordingly. Same goes for the detailing, with the former having a cinch back + crotch rivet, etc. Thanks for taking the time to look that up, Foxy. Always great to be able to put numbers to this sorta conversation.

    Thanks! Seems likely that I could maybe go for either an L or an XL based on that, but if you could post measurements anyway when you get the chance that would be great. Is the longer length mostly noticeable in the body, or are the sleeves longer-than-average as well?

    Any experience with Deluxeware's knitwear? A few of their sweatshirts have been catching my eye recently, but I'm not finding much info on sizing. The usual question, then: L or XL? Any anecdotes re: quality of fabric and / or construction also appreciated.

    I've had bad luck with the spin cycle of the washing machine, but never with the dryer. Overall, I don't really like how fluffy (for lack of a better word) clothes feel after coming out of the dryer, so I do prefer air drying when possible, but when it's not sunny out that's just too much of a hassle. I never use the dryer on anything above "low" for any of my clothes (besides when I actively want to shrink something), so I guess I don't expect the effects on the dye to be too serious…if anything's gonna do damage, it's gonna be the tumbling itself, and the washer's already doing plenty of that

    I guess I just don't like waiting two days for my pants to dry when it's not sunny out

    Looks like Milwaukee still has most sizes in stock I'd be surprised if Pants Shop Avenue didn't, too

    @bartlebyyphonics, yep—by the time I left the house it had warmed up enough that a second jacket wasn't needed, but it was still in that not-quite-warm middle-zone…long store short, spent most of the day with the collar popped and loved it. I think you're right that that's a much more natural way of wearing this style of jacket.

    Thanks. So far my only two complaints are that I'd like bigger / higher pockets and that the initial criticisms of it making folks' necks look long were 100% spot on. Both are heavily outweighed for me by the fabric + construction + overall styling, but maybe worth keeping in mind for others interested. I know I should've expected this from a moleskin, but I'm still continually surprised by how soft the fabric is, especially on the outer face—it's really luxurious. The whole look is a lot more formal-feeling than my other jackets, so I think that's going to take the most getting used to. I did get the impression that Ooe were going to be making more, and I think you'll be able to pull it off no problem.

    ^ Posted a couple more in the OA thread sans JWJ Will aim for taking some detail shots one of these days, but I have a pretty busy couple of weeks coming up so not sure when it'll end up happening. So far the biggest surprise, seeing it in person, has been how green the fabric is under certain lightings

    Stopped for some "fit pics" over breakfast Definitely on the slim and short side, but a size up wouldn't've been right in the neck / shoulders / arms. Works great with a shirt or two underneath and okay with a sweater, but not much more. Luckily for me, that fits 90% of how I'd like to wear it anyway.
