  1. Sugar Cane Denim

    Boy, looks like that pair's in great shape, too. I know that just last page I was saying I'd like the BEGIN pair above most others, but I think the lot 500 would be one of the few to top it. Wearing my pair of the synthetic version today and even those are something else.

    ^ They're not still available anywhere. That's presumably why he was letting us know that he's searching for a pair: in case anyone sees one pop up.
  3. Sugar Cane Denim

    Thanks. Yeah, I'm not getting my hopes up by any means, but I'd be lying if I claimed those weren't somewhere in the back of my mind each time I open up Yahoo Auctions
  4. Sugar Cane Denim

    ^^ very, very cool find. An un- or lightly-used pair of those is close to the top of my list of jeans I'd like to get my hands on. re: hand-dyed natural indigo, I'm not sure that a pair of jeans being fade-resistant makes them anything along the lines of "just a novelty"…if anything, I'd say wearing jeans for the fades is more of a novelty than just wearing good jeans because they're good jeans.

    The very unfortunate answer is: no, there aren't any non-skinny black jeans : (

    I'd be all over the workshirts if they had symmetrical pockets (or just a single pocket). Don't mind the small collar, personally.
  7. Yeah, I don't expect the 1955 to show up in anything other than the standard 21 oz. denim any time in the near (or distant, for that matter) future. Oh well : ( Meanwhile, you're right that the rise on the 888 is higher, but I don't see that that having much effect on the way the thighs fit—after all, neither cut has much of a drop crotch.
  8. ^ Thanks. Unfortunately, like the 634, the 888 seems to be too slim for me through the thighs. You're right that, if there were just a bit more room, the taper wouldn't be enough to bother me—seems not too different from the above-mentioned Momotaros. Now if only they'd do an overdyed or SBG iteration of the 1955…
  9. Shoes that look better with age...

    ^ Good info, thanks. I guess maybe my calibration's been a bit off all this time (not really used to buying shoes sized in centimeters). That's another thing I was wondering: should I expect various Moonstar sneakers to fit similarly / to have similar sizing? Wasn't sure whether or not they had any sort of standardization among the different brands that they do production for…
  10. Shoes that look better with age...

    Anyone have experience with the sizing on Nigel Cabourn sneakers? The speedway pages for the various models list sizes such as "9.5 / 28cm" and "10.5 / 29cm", which is throwing me for a bit of a loop since I'm used to 28cm being around an 11 and 29cm being around an 12.5 in standard US sizing. Haven't worn sneakers since I was a kid, so any general sneaker sizing + fit advice is also welcome…
  11. ^ whether they're fakes or not I can tell you for sure that those are 100% not legit
  12. Samurai Jeans

    ^ I don't know Samurai well, but isn't the NBK (as opposed to BKB) made using yarns that are dyed to the core, to prevent any sort of traditional fading? If so, the discoloration you're seeing may be due not to the outer portions of the yarns wearing away but to the dye itself reacting poorly to sunlight, air, etc. and losing its original hue. I know that black-to-brown is a common transition for non-colorfast "black" dyes.

    x-post from SdA thread: Jacket is JWJ, tee is Orgueil, pants are Cane's, boots are Red Wing
  14. Studio D'artisan

    Picked up an indigo-dyed Orgueil henley at Self Edge yesterday and I'm loving it. Might be the beefiest non-waffle tee I own…either way, the fit's just what I was looking for and the fabric's something else. The buttons, in particular, are really special, though the above selfie doesn't do them justice. Was worth a shot.
  15. The Flat Head

    Thanks for the replies. re: 3005: I don't mind a straighter leg at all, but I worry that the rise would be too short, especially in front. I'll look into the 3009.
