    Maybe, but seems like probably not. Framing it in terms of bend radii is tricky, since mounting the soles like this actually requires deflecting them along two axes / actually stretching out the center of the outsole onto a curved manifold. (Sorry if I’m not making much sense; I’m not used to talking about this sort of thing without using physics / math words.)

    Shoes that look better with age...

    While I’m at it, some initial shots of the Flame Panda #206 Breaking these in is gonna be rough. The leather is thick and very stiff. It has a great sheen to it, though, & I’m really looking forward to seeing how it ages. Peng shipped them with two pairs of waxed cotton laces (one flat & one round), but given how chunky the boots turned out I think they’ll be a good fit for these black raw hide laces from White’s. The construction is very clean. All of the stitching is at very consistent intervals, and coincident seems line up with corner perfectly. The edges at the bottoms of the quarters aren’t burnished super straight, but that’s the only plausible imperfection I can come up with. Overall, they really are immaculate.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    What’s the deal with some shoes being built such that the outsole bulges outwards towards the center? What’s the reasoning for shoemakers doing this? Does the outsole flatten out with time & wear, or does it remain curved? To be clear, I’m not talking about toe spring, but about the center of the outsole bulging out beyond the edges (see photos). I’ve noticed this on my boots from Fracap and Flame Panda, and I’m not sure how to feel about it. It’s also evident on most (new) boots that I’ve seen from Brass Tokyo, so I doubt that it’s an accident or a mark of poor quality—but I’ve never had the opportunity to see, in person, what effects it has after extended wear. Do folks know what I’m talking about? Any insight?
  5. There’s a tree next to my porch that’s nice to look at I don’t like being in pictures, let alone actively taking pictures of myself—never been interested in any of the social media or any of that—so I try to tell myself that I’m taking pictures of the clothes, & that I’m just there incidentally, as a sort of mannequin. I think maybe looking away from the camera helps to strengthen that illusion; besides, when I look at the camera I’m no good at doing the fake smile, & I don’t have the whole gruff smirk thing quite down yet…

    @dawei94 Sure thing. Looks like they’re size 33 (sorry if I wasn’t clear: I knew I had either a 33 or a 34, but didn’t remember which). They’re the pre-washed version, so fully shrunk (& likely to stretch out some in the waist). Plenty of photos linked a page or two ago in this thread. Measurements follow, in cm: Waist: 80.6 Front rise: 30.5 Rear rise: 41.3 Thigh (@ crotch seam): 31.1 Inseam: 85.1 Hem: 22.9

    @dawei94, any interest in trading the Cane’s for a smaller size? I have some in either 33 or 34, still new in box, & always wanted to try them out

    @beautiful_FrEaK Fit looks great! When you get a chance, would you mind taking a rear fit pic from a higher vantage point? Trying to get a feel for how the asymmetrical pockets look in practice

    Beautiful color on that shirt, @Duke Mantee Maybe you can answer this: are there any differences between the Bakehead and the modern Neal?

    That shouldn’t affect longevity—I wouldn’t worry about it If you consider this sort of thing a visual defect, Freewheelers may not be the brand for you

  20. How are Jelado shirts sized? Interested in the Railroader, in particular—leaning XL (my usual Japanese size), but any advice is appreciated

    Sugar Cane Denim

    I don’t have any personal experience with the SC black denim, but the general advice seems to be that it stretches back to raw in the waist like most other SC denims. When I went to Self Edge to check these out, they also recommended that I side up to a 36, which is def. wrong. Sizing Cane’s down one from TCB is pretty standard, & should be a safe bet.

    @JMS Thanks. I only have a few things from them, & no consistent supplier. I think I’ve purchased from Empty Garage (JP), Self Edge (US), Cultizm (DE), & The Shop (CA), with things from the latter two (incl. this shirt) having been on pretty steep sale
