  1. The Tender Co. Type 900 is essentially a chore coat, and is one of my favorite pieces of clothing

    That sort of comparison is almost never straightforward …but in this case it really is. On build quality, the 601xx win hands down

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Glad that they weren’t selling them early. I’m pretty sure that they were gonna try to keep some separate stock for in-store sales (they usually seem to), but who knows whether it will have lasted the full day and a half…

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Any idea when they got their stock for in-store sales? I’d assumed it was at the same time as for online sales and was thinking of stopping by later today to try and check them out, but if they’ve already been getting picked through all week then I’m probably too late…

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Waist looks like 33” measured how they’re measuring it, so probably 34” or 34 1/2” total circumference (I think both versions of the measurement are useful and say different things about how the jeans will fit) / I find it way more useful to measure thighs a little higher, but thigh measurements never really seem to tell the full story either way

    Been eyeing that same jacket. Looking forward to seeing how it ages

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    I’m more used to seeing the opposite: lining (often wool, so makes sense) shrinking more than denim and leaving a slightly bunched up body. Cool lightning bolt style fades; I love it

    @AlientoyWorkmachine Never machine died, no. I think they’d lose too much in the length. The whole reason I ended up with this pair in particular is that they were some or other special edition that measured around 1” longer than standard, which put them right in my sweet spot. I’m used to needing to patch pocket bags and crotches, so that hasn’t been too much of an annoyance for me. The constructional thread on these is weaker than on almost any of my other jeans, which is sort of a bummer…but also re-stitching over a seam is about the easiest category of repair, overall, so it’s hard to complain too much about that either. Overall, really great jeans in almost every way—just not perfect for me personally.

    Thanks! No, these are the DSB denim. I’d still really like to try the banner denim, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to it—between the shallow / flimsy pocket bags and the generally short inseams, I don’t think Warehouse is the brand for me.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    To all appearances, the thread seems cotton (which is all I’ve known Sugar Cane to use in the past), but I’ll take a flame to it later to double check. Of course that would explain the dye not taking, but it would also seem out of character for them. I guess that being the explanation would imply that they’d used some different material of yarns for the edges of the denim, too, since those also didn't take the overdye? Seems a little far fetched, but would for sure be an interesting approach. Makes me a little surprised that Iron Heart doesn't do something similar, since their target audience generally seems very interested in showing off their flashy selvedge outseams. 00, I’m still not sure where the idea of them being hard-washed at any point in the production process is coming from. What’s your reasoning?

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Hadn’t considered that, but I doubt it. The base fabric is a bull denim (same color warp and fill, to all appearances), and the coloring looks pretty uniform. The big question for me is what the constructional stitching & the yarns on the selvedges didn’t take the dye, when everything else did. They really don’t look or feel like a different material.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Yep, overdyed black (gray, really). They don’t seem to be hard-washed post-dyeing—just looks like a regular overdye job. Good call about the patches on the hard-washed models, though—I’ve never paid enough attention to those for them to come to mind, but of course you’re right that they had the same feature. They’re detailed the same as the lot 285, but in a little less slim of a cut.

    SugarCane 1990's M-Series Archive

    M41300 mentioned on the last page (98 button code) Still haven't found the "4th" in my size, but those are now the only of the main '98 series that I'm still missing… Not sure yet whether I'll start wearing these now or add them to the stack—the silhouette fits pretty well with what I've been enjoying recently, and I really, really like the constructional stitching on the back pockets

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Never seen these before: SC40345 They're really funny. They look overdyed: both tags are grey, the hip patch was added after construction + washing (which I've never seen before on any other modern SC jeans—check out the stitching from the inside, for reference), and the denim looks like it was washed pretty hard during manufacturing. At the same time, all of the [cotton] constructional thread has maintained its original color, as has the white yarn at selvedges of the fabric (forgot to take photos of that). The pocket bags (selvedges included) are clearly overdyed the same as the main fabric. I'd welcome any takes on what the whole deal might be. One way or an other, I'm planning to start wearing them right away(ish). Picked them up for MSRP, ¥12.8k.

    1001XX DSB, don't remember which exact model Similar wear to the 601XX: maybe 2–3 times / week for the last year and a half Yoke needs re-stitching, and the crotch needs a patch, but I really like how they're looking these days
