    Sugar Cane Denim

    The 105 was the one with red stitching, and I think it was an indigo / white chambray rather than a double indigo denim…in my memory, neither it nor the 100 used natural indigo, but it's been a while for me too…

    ^ Are you sure the lot 100 Hawaii were dyed with natural indigo? I remember seeing a price tag, at some point, that led me to believe that they were more like the precursor to the modern lot 401…but it’s not something I’ve ever looked into further

    Y'all Southern California folks are wild As soon as it hits 70, here, I start to think about switching to shorts It's past 80 today and I'm not happy about it

    What are your jeans doing today?

    ^ The main thing I'm taking away from that post is how nice the oxidation is around the nails on your shed door—it's great to see how far it bleeds down through the grain below each one, especially compared to how little it bleeds on the rest of the shed where the grain's horizontal Down with paint, down with shingles: raw wood's just as special as raw denim

    Good finds! The lot 200 (on the left) are a really neat pair. The warp yarns are hand-dyed using polygonum tinctorium—classic Japanese plant indigo—as referenced by the stamp on the pocket bag. As far as I can tell, that makes these the most similar, out of Sugar Cane's natural-dyed line, to the Ai lines from other companies like PBJ and Samurai. For whatever reason, though—as you can already tell on that pair—they do seem to fade significantly with wear, to a really nice lighter greenish blue. They're not related to the Hawaii. I should wear my pair more; the fabric's nice and the cut's one of my favorites. @MileHighEvertonian, that's no coincidence: the pair on the right are the natural-dyed version of the Okinawa (lot 300 vs. lot 301 for the synthetic-dyed pair). Both are woven left-handed, and the dyeing seems to be pretty similar besides the source of the indigo.

    From Japan is always sending emails out about 5–10% off deals for Rakuten orders—probably will still be more expensive than going direct once you include domestic shipping and proxy fees all that, but might come close for larger orders

    SC40510 fit 2" too wide & 3" too short, but I think the two almost cancel each other out

    Tender Co. Denim

    Just noticing the mechanical GS/TP watches up on Stores—how long have these been around for? Anyone have experience with them? Last I checked, I remember everything being quartz

    Do you know of anyone around here who has / had an original non-wash or unused once-washed pair? I know Foxy has a pair in good condition, but I think they're hard-washed. Haven't seen many photos floating around these parts.

    Yep, that was me—funny you should say that, ¥10k was exactly my upper limit Did also see both the lot 302. If either were my size, I would've jumped on them, but they're still common enough that I wasn't gonna buy them just to take a look and resell…already had a too-small pair of the persimmon ones in great condition a couple of years ago, anyway I like the pouch of rice idea. From that photo it looks like it's sewn shut? Permanent rice—for use only as a talisman / never as nutrition

    Where's your waist sitting these days, Edwin? Having just tried these on, I'm worried they might end up being too small on me—they're right up my alley, and I really want to try and make them work, but if someone else who would appreciate them was better suited to fit into them as-is, I'd be willing to talk. edit: Never mind, I've gotta stick with these. They seem sanforized, so I'm not too worried about shrinking, and the fit's really great everywhere besides the waist.

    Hemmed / lightly-used SC40510 Just Drift With Groove They're actually a size too big for me, and I'm likely going to end up selling them off sooner rather than later, but I had always wanted to see a pair of these in person and there was no way I was gonna pass up on the opportunity. If you think you might be interested, let me know—happy to provide measurements, etc., on request.

    @Double 0 Soul, yeah, it does. I don't have anything else that looks similar. Even though I've been washing them pretty regularly, it has a sorta oily look to it, similar to the jeans folks'll post now and then that have been worn hard and never washed for years. The streakiness is just starting to come out, and from what I've seen of other pairs I think it should become pretty strong, so I'm looking forward to that—likewise to more puckering / wrinkling around the seams, which has only started to really show up in the last couple of washes.
