    ^ If you don't get bites here, you might try over on reddit. Folks there go apeshit over these collabs.

    Hey William—just went to buy some pairs of those wool socks that've been popping up here and there and was sad to see that both the dyed versions are already out of stock on your site. Is there any chance more of those will be getting made, or is that the end of it?

    Zipper's branded Gripper, yeah. Spent the better part of a minute trying to get a good photo of it, but the lighting just wasn't right—always ended up either blown-out or out of focus. Such are the perils of smartphone photography.

    Last photodump of the day! Recently found a pair of lot 1955 MiUSA from the pre-lawsuit days on Yahoo, new in box. Got them in around mid-December, but decided to wait until the holidays to open them, figured I might as well treat them as a gift from me to me. Took some photos while unboxing since I wasn't sure how long it'd been since anyone actually opened up a new pair of these… …and then took some regular photos of the pants yesterday afternoon for cut, details, *etc.*

    Last of the mixed denim, the lot 501 Edo Ai. I wore these a lot when I first got them, but I've been wearing them less recently. I like the fabric a lot in principle, but I think it's too loud for every-day wear. Oh well—everyone needs a good pair of yard work jeans. They've actually begun to fade much more quickly / easily than I expected. Go figure.

    Next, the lot 200. These things are seriously stubborn. Wore them quite a bit over this past summer and fall, though, and they are starting to change color a bit around the lap and seat. The pocket bags have also started to fade nicely. Really great cut, really great fabric, really great jeans.

    ^ The reddit writeup's not about the Wrangler repros in particular, just more of a general brand spotlight / rundown of what sorts of jeans Sugar Cane makes and where to find them. I'll reserve the repro talk for here; I think it would put the reddit folks to sleep fast. Anyway, here's a link in case anyone's interested: https://www.reddit.com/r/rawdenim/comments/afo2nw/sugar_cane_day_has_arrived_post_pictures_of_your/. If you see anything that I got wrong, please do let me know—I threw the whole thing together sort of last-minute, and I'm talking out of my ass most of the time anyway. That said, time for a photo dump. First up's the lot 401 Hawaii jeans, purchased pre-washed around March or April 2017 and worn pretty regularly since:

    The second from the right are a pair of deadstock lot 1955 leftover from the pre-lawsuit days. Very exciting! Picked them up a bit ago, but just pulled them out of the box for the first time over the holidays as a bit of a gift to myself. Snapped some photos which I'll post up this afternoon. They're pre-washed, but I haven't yet worn them besides trying them on for fit. So far, I've only worn the mixed denim pairs, the three on the left. Of those, the lot 200 (second from the left) are my favorites. It doesn't come through well in photos, but the fabric is really special, without ever being too loud like some other hank-dyed pairs. They have two minor downsides. One is that the color doesn't match too well with non-natural-looking colors (notably, black); the other is that they only fit how I like during the summer—I'm always an inch or so thicker between November and May, and these are unfortunately slim enough that that makes a difference. When they fit, though, the fit's great: slim through the upper leg with really properly high rises in front and back. The rest do fit year-round.

    Took a family photo yesterday, too Planning to do a biggish photodump some time soon with detail shots of the above, so stay tuned

    ^ No, still haven't soaked. Need to get some length chopped off first, which is a first for me…these things are looooong. Maybe today'll be the day that I run them over to some or other shop. Consensus when I asked in the Questions thread seemed to be that AB Fits was my best bet, but I live a whole lot closer to Standard & Strange, so I'm still not totally sure where I'll take them. Anyway, was taking some photos for a writeup I'm doing over on reddit and found, in the rear pocket, a neat little set of instructions for branding the patch…

    ^ Can't find this anywhere. Got a link?
  12. Great, thanks for the info. I'm now used to thinking of EU44 / US10.5 (my size) as around 28cm, so I wasn't sure whether to proceed, but that seems promising.
  13. Anyone tried out Ues socks? They restocked the Large size for the first time in a while and they're really tempting me…but they recommend them as fitting sizes 25–27, which doesn't seem very large at all

    Ah, that's a shame, but good info to have anyway—thanks! Now back to wishing I was a size 2 or 6…
