    I’ve never found measurements all too useful for knits—too much variation in stretch, etc. They look like they should work okay per the measurements given, but figured you’d know better anyhow

    How much do the DSB jeans shrink in length? Anyone put them through the dryer yet? Thinking of the 1000xx in particular

    Thanks. That’s sort of what I expected—couple of henleys on Yahoo for cheap, but all size 44—oh well, one day I’ll buckle & treat myself to one or two at full price

    @Duke Mantee Sorry for the ambiguity—was thinking of the tees (either plain neck or henley neck) in particular

    Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    That’s how they did the 401 and the 501, so it wouldn’t be too surprising

    I’ve prob. asked this before, but: how are Power Wear knits sized relative to standard FW shirts? Does a 17 more or less correspond to a 42?

    Thanks @cultpop 0217, yeah, really happy with the fit on these—always wish they’d do more jeans with the same longer inseam—besides leg length, everything I’ve tried on from Warehouse has fit like it’s made to measure

    Many knitting machines result in tubular-knit fabrics—not just tsuri-ami loopwheelers

    The Flat Head

    S2004 starting to really break in This fabric is closer to standard Cone, in terms of how it reacts to wear and washes, than any other Japanese denim I’ve seen in person Last photo is a comparison with the SC M41058, prob. the truest color of the bunch

    M41058 Wranglers Lots of wear, lots of washes, lots of replaced stitching—weakest thread I've ever seen on a pair of jeans—but the fabric's still holding strong everywhere Last shot is a comparison with the TFH S2004, prob. the truest color of the bunch—really wild how dark / grey this denim stays in areas that don't see direct wear, especially in contrast to how electric the blues are in areas that do

    Maybe I’m mixing up the ‘55 and the ‘66

    The 2955 was MiJ; the 1955 was MiUSA edit: Could be misremembering all this? Gonna do some research…it’s been a few years

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Def. agree that the construction has a very different feel to it—but I wouldn’t have an easy time trying to make a direct comparison on quality I will say that I really don’t like how wide the busted outseams are on the SC MiUSA

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Previous denim a was old stock MiUSA, prob. White Oak (?); new denim is MiJ, prob. Nihon Menpu (& I’ve never noticed any difference in construction quality between SC MiUSA and MiJ…)

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Also just gave the MOTOs their first conditioning—they recommend every ten wears, which seems like quite a bit, but I think I’m going to try sticking to it for at least the first few months…& boy do they look good for it

    Denim pedantry is why we’re all here—thanks for correcting me! I guess the parallel to Century Denim is closer than I’d thought, after all. I’ll need to take a closer look at the cross weave denim; receiving the elephant mug wrapped in an extra swath of it seems to have been very timely (& the mug itself exceeds expectations, too!)

    What are your jeans doing today?

    Spent the last few days hiking up and down the far south end of the Lost Coast / living on beaches Very, very pretty country The density of foliage made me think more of WA or MT or BC, not CA—especially not drought-ridden CA—& being able to safely build fires was a lovely change of pace Plenty of wild garlic & nettles to snack on; fresh mussels harvested for lunch on Monday; good swimming & good bouldering Unmaintained trail w/ heavy poison oak coverage, so persimmon Cane’s & long sleeves were worn throughout

    SugarCane 1990's M-Series Archive

    No photos of the pocket tag, this is just what’s up on the Yahoo page Could well be a shop collab—very similar to the M41057 besides the hardware and branding, you’re right, although the style of arcs & the buttons would almost make me guess MP if not for the model number given by the seller

    SugarCane 1990's M-Series Archive

    Anyone know anything about the M40057 "Lea Genus" Never seen this sort of explicitly non-Cane's branding on main line Cane's before… They look a lot like standard late '30s / early '40s Cowboy jeans in most regards (could be off by a bit, I don't know Lee jeans well), never seen these buttons on any other Cane's either though

    Picked a couple of new Warehouse shirts up recently from Yahoo, really falling for the fit of this 3019 in particular Warehouse / Hollows / TFH / Lofgren

    I don’t know for a fact, but I’m pretty sure that the Kapital Century Denim is woven as a weft-facing twill with indigo fill. It’s not quite the same, since here you’ve still woven the fabric as a warp-facing twill, such that the jeans are truly cut inside out (face in) rather than just weft-side out (but still face out)—but it’s an interesting comparison to make all the same. I really like the whole idea of your cross-weave denim. It’s not for me, personally, but every time I’ve seen photos of it worn in it’s seemed a great study on how different factors of weaving affect the aging of indigo yarns: there’s so much more to it than just the sort of dye and the number of dips!
