  1. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    ^^ EBMUD provides the master of all water services, gotta love living that drinking-unfiltered-tap-water lifestyle
  2. Workshirts

    ^ & ^^: Do they still make those? I was just on their page the other day to order some T-shirts, and I saw zero chambray anything. Seems like they used to have all sorts of different options. Would be interested in picking one up if they're still around, since I'll be paying the shipping either way…
  3. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Roy knows his stuff for sure, but I strongly disagree with him on this point. If I ever spill something nasty on my jeans, I want to be certain that tossing them in the machine on warm with plenty of detergent isn't going to drastically change how they fit, and the only way to know for certain is to have already shrunk them fully.
  4. The Flat Head

    Anyone have experience with this Yahoo Auctions seller? https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/seller/amekichi_ishinoshoji Their ratings are all very good (and they have quite a few of them), but some of their prices just seem absurdly low—they routinely seem to be selling Flat Head flannels for ~¥12000. Are these factory seconds, or something of that sort?
  5. Bowery Blue Makers - NYC

    I appreciate the buttons being offset from the tacks on the front pleats. One of my biggest gripes with the JWJ El Patron and with the LVC TPB is the lack of give at the points where buttons and tacks coincide. Looks like a great jacket!
  6. Persimmon jeans thread

    Resurrecting this thread in hopes that someone may have a lead on some NOS or lightly-used persimmon-dyed jeans. Sugar Cane's 1947 cut fits me well in sizes 32 through 34, and I'm happy with any fit similar to this. I've been scourging eBay and Yahoo Auctions for a while now hoping for something to pop up, but I've had no such luck, so I'm turning to you! Any ideas of where else I might search would be greatly appreciated.
  7. How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    That's a wild collection, @Foxy2! Would you consider posting some side-by-side photos of your various SC40302s? I wasn't aware that these were made with two separate versions of the persimmon dye, and in particular I'd be really interested to see how the two versions differ.
  8. If fit is more important to you than fabric, it will be hard for anyone to help you decide on a pair. There's no possible way for anyone here to know which of those jeans will fit you the best, given that we haven't seen you wearing any of them.
  9. Unknown Japanese Brands

    That denim looks great! The detailing is pretty neat too; it's a nice mix of different styles. That said, they don't look anywhere near high-rise… I'd seen Trophy on Denimio and never thought to look into them. Thanks for spurring my interest!
  10. They haven't changed their name; that's just how they label their international products. Their domestic products are still labeled Pure Blue Japan. I don't know what the initial reasoning was for the separate labeling, but it's been this way for a while.
  11. Sugar Cane Denim

    ^^ Yes, those
  12. Sugar Cane Denim

    Is it the same 16 oz. fabric as the 1930s-era jeans and Type I that came out this season?
  13. Waywt 2018 (denim version)

    Those Fullcounts are really lovely; I wish they'd made them in a wider fit. Good combo with the jacket, too!
  14. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I'm around 6'2" and am pretty happy with anything in the 10.5–12" range in front. I like jeans to sit right at the top of my hip bones. I definitely have trouble with rear rises below around 15.5", and usually find this measurement to be more important to whether a pair of pants'll work for me.
  15. Sugar Cane Denim

    I don't know any other model numbers off the top of my head, but I know they've done various special editions in the past that have been similar to their main cuts (S510 and S710) with only slight adjustments. The Samurai thread would be more helpful, I'm sure. Another option would be Iron Heart's 1955 cut, which is a little slimmer all around, but has a similar rise and a nice straight leg.
