    Sugar Cane Denim

    My pairs of M-series Cane's (both tagged 36L) have shrunk to end up with around a 34–35" inseam. Take that as you will Both are the same waist size as my more contemporary Cane's edit: …but definitely take 00's word over mine

    Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    ^ If you read through some of the thread—especially towards the beginning—you'll see that most of the folks posting seem to dry their jeans by machine pretty regularly This fabric really appears to take well to it (all of TCB's fabrics do, honestly) Really great-looking jeans all through this last page or two—thanks to all those contributing!
  4. ^ Having no experience with either, I say go with the 601xx so I can experience them vicariously—would really love a pair of those

    WAYWT 2019 (denim edition)

    Yep, weather's a big part of what's kept me living here Meanwhile, last week saw a few days in the 90s and no one had any idea how to respond: we've gone soft!

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Well Taobao's just an online market place, much like Amazon or Rakuten. Whether or not a brand does business through them shouldn't reflect much on their products or their overall ethics. (As an example, Bronson Mfg. Co. sells both through Taobao and through Amazon. You get the same products either way.)

    Don't think I haven't been keeping my eye out, Edwin—I'll let you know if / when something pops up

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I'll throw in an opposing opinion: to the extent to which some stores' descriptions can be trusted, it does seem like some of the Chinese companies (Sauce Zhan and Bob Dong come to mind) are operated out of smallish workshops by skilled craftspeople, and in that sense I don't think it's unreasonable to think they might be acting pretty ethically. The prices are stupidly low because the costs of living and doing business are stupidly low for the folks running them; there's no need for that to reflect directly on the manufacturing process.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Good find, @Thanks_M8. As mentioned a page or two ago, 00 Soul's thread over on the Brand Archives section of Denimbro is a great resource for dating / identifying old Cane's. Beyond that, not sure how much you'll be able to find. Looking forward to seeing pics!

    @volvo240thebest, that T-shirt really is top-notch. Do you mind sharing where you found it? (Do they do more in that sort of style?)
  14. Any experience with Sassafras? They have a pair of shorts that I'm interested in that I've found for a good price, but I haven't been able to find anything about who does their construction, how their materials and construction hold up (and age), etc. Looking forward to all input.
