    Yeah, saw that too—the Indian black was the one I’d really had my eye on, but I’m more than happy with the red ochre Peak luxury, really

    Some really good deals on Rocky Mountain Featherbed vests right now @ Mirror Ball for smaller folks…

    I didn’t even know a five-pocket version of those existed…those are pretty much my dream jeans

    ^ Don’t know why, but I’d always thought the denim was from Huston—learn something new every day!

    Good info, thanks—was worried that would probably be the case Looking forward to trying on the new version when they come in!

    How do the sleeves fit on the Cody shirts? I have a Unionist shirt in XL that fits well overall but is borderline too slim through the forearms—it works out okay, but does mean that I almost exclusively wear it with the sleeves rolled up past my elbows, which isn't ideal. Will I have similar issues with the Cody?

    There’s a pair in W34 up for sale as well, but not for quite so generous a price…

    There was an extra pair made that went out on a sort of “world tour” among Denimbro folks, may even still be active Got to wear them for a couple months in 2018 & they were really something special edit: Beat me to it

    Seems sorta dissonant to credit the sneakers as Nikes when they're not made by Nike, but on the same line of text to credit the replica sweatshirt as Warehouse rather than Fruit of the Loom (or Champion, or whomever made the original…) If that was the norm, half of this thread would just be "Levi's / Levi's / Levi's / US Military"—maybe just a difference in expectations between sneaker culture / jeans culture?

    A vintage loom, no, but looms aren’t where yarn irregularity comes from. More “natural”-looking slub occurs when yarns are spun on old or poorly-calibrated spinning machines, and modern spinning machines do offer the capability to punch in a varying feed rate (hence thickness) along the length of a yarn. The trick of the companies working with the over-engineered slub is that, yes, they’re using vintage looms—after all, if their jeans didn’t have busted selvedge outseams, their customer base would lose interest completely—but everything leading up to the loom is presumably very modern (I’d assume, anyway, that the same is true for cotton processing, dyeing, etc.). This is cheaper and provides more control over the final product, but it certainly detracts from the vintage-esque wabi sabi nature that’s more popular around these parts

    I’m fine with the idea in principle, but they’ve gone too far in the name of alliteration: I’m unwilling to support something with Invitational right in its name that’s in no way an invitational …plus, as you say, the tastes of most of the participants + of the judges are pretty clearly at odds with what’s appealing to me personally (or, I’d guess, to most of the folks here)

    ^ Thanks for the heads up I’d spent a while going back and forth on the velvet jackets but decided they were a little too rich for me; really excited to be able to give one a go!

    @Hopethisoneisnttaken Thanks for the impressions—looking forward to seeing how everything ages! I’ve never been sure about the various names either…I guess Motoike himself is the common factor among the sub-brands, but I’ve no idea what makes a good thread title

    Great first page for the new year! Seems like the forum’s been less active over the past couple months; glad to set things maybe picking back up a bit @Hopethisoneisnttaken, any impressions on those jeans? I’ve been interested in trying out MOTO clothes since I like their shoes so much, but never been sure how well that would transfer / whether they’re even made in the same facilities / etc.
  18. I'm not really a fan of Smartwool; whatever wool–poly blend they use seems to pill way faster than the alternatives. Have had better luck with Icebreaker & Woolpower If you really want to treat yourself, my very favorite undershirt is a loopwheeled 100% merino deal from Merz, from a few seasons ago—not sure whether they still make anything similar

    Good to know, thanks—might look into one I’ve always washed sweaters by hand so never had to worry about it, but I’d def. like to be able to throw this in the machine with everything else, so if that helps it should be a good investment

    Nope, never have, but the machine at my current place is pretty gentle

    Having put it through the wash, I’d say this acts more like a fine-knit sweater than like other cut-and-sewn merino tops that I’ve worn. It shrunk probably around a size and a half, and felted just slightly. I think this’ll make washing it down the line a little more annoying than I was hoping (& I’ll probably end up wearing tee shirts under it, to keep it a little cleaner), but all things considered it still seems to have taken it fairly well. The upside it it acting more like a sweater is that it can be blocked like one when drying. The body and sleeves looked a full 2–3” longer than I wanted when I pulled it from the machine, but laying it flat to dry and pulling everything to the size that I wanted easily got it to a nice state. Since I did manipulate it while drying, I don’t think it would be very useful for me to post before and after measurements, but: before a wash, the XXL was extremely baggy, and the XL that I tried on in Self Edge a couple years ago fit just about perfect; after washing, blocking, and drying, the XXL fits similar to the raw XL, but a little tighter at the neck and in the armpits. Overall, very pleased with the results.

    Gave it a wash last night, will take some measurements & write up a few thoughts when I get home

    @mpukas I’m planning on machine washing mine gentle like everything else & air drying, so I can report back in a week or so on how much shrinkage I see I’ve found that when I say I’m only gonna dry-clean clothes I just never end up wearing them, & that seems like a waste—I’ll happily shrink it some & cut its lifespan a little short if that means wearing it as much as I want in stead of letting it sit in the hamper for weeks at a time while I forget to take it to the cleaners—to each their own, though
