    Took some photos last week of my old lot 401 Hawaii Indirect natural light—color is pretty true

    Starting to see some nice wear on the '51 601xx Really like these jeans a lot

    What are your jeans doing today?

    Lots of household things stain well, but coffee really isn’t one of them If you don’t feel like hunting down walnuts, regular black tea will get you pretty far

    Some great stuff you have there (unsurprisingly), will have to take a closer look …but $300 is an absolutely absurd markup for those Cane's

    Warehouse

    Can anyone help me track down one of these in a bigger size??? I don't know Dubbleworks well at all, so no idea when it's from, but I need it in my life. https://jp.mercari.com/item/m64298420431 edit: Found this Warehouse blog post from 2016: https://warehouse-staff-blog.tumblr.com/post/144600434683/embed Also found, in my searching, that this was proposed in the '70s by the then-governor of Wisconsin as the state's license plate slogan. Devastatingly, it was turned down by the search committee. Would still appreciate any and all help tracking one down in an XL, any color…

    @scooby Those are looking great Did you pick the stitching from the tab, or is it falling apart like that on its own?

    I’m sure I’ve asked this before, but what size would I wear in Power Wear tees? Most Union Special and Bubo shirts fit me well in a 17, although some are better in a 17 1/2 (the limiting factor is usually shoulders). I see some tees tagged, e.g., “XL (42–44)”, and I’m pretty confident that they would be the appropriate size. I’m more unsure about the ones that are only given numerical sizes—my inclination is to lean towards 42, rather than 44, but that’s not really based on anything.

    No, certainly not. If anyone here wants them enough to pay more than I’m willing to pay, they should have them. It would just seem like a shame for multiple of us to bid on them & make whoever wins pay more than necessary. Better to be transparent about sniper bids from the start for everyone’s sake.

    Yes, and some nice M41072 in W33, which I don't see very often at all (My sniper bid on the M41030 is in at ¥20k, for anyone thinking of throwing their hat in—please let me know if you're planning on bidding more and I can cancel mine so that it doesn't drive the price up)

    There was a more recent version in the 800 cut, you're right. Mine are older (I think), and tagged 1001xx / 1000. I think the 800 version used a wide-loomed denim, whereas these have selvedges, which is kind of nice. I've probably posted about them in the Warehouse thread. The fabric is really nice and light, and has a lot of give to it. Even when I first got them they were a good bit slimmer than most of my other jeans, but they still fit comfortably because of how forgiving they were.

    There's a whole slew of very good condition '90s Cane's up on Mercari right now, for anyone in the 28–30" waist range

    Oh, is that so? The '51 are some of my best-fitting jeans… I have an old pair of Warehouse in black-on-natural denim that I like a lot—I think it's a way more versatile fabric than it gets credit for—but at this point I think they're probably a good bit too slim on me. I'm a little scared to try them on and find out.

    Very interested in how the fit on the 601B compares to the other 601xx

    Ouch, that's rough. What does it seem like the failure point was? I've seen bar tacks cause issues when they're stitched too densely / with too thick of a thread, but usually that seems to have more of a negative effect on finer fabrics…I'd expect denim to be fine with tacking, more or less (Yeah, not easy to tell from photos but that looks like a standard 2x1)

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Shrunk down a pair of M41119 yesterday that I'd had in my closet for a while, and I'm wearing them now for the first time. I was expecting them to be pretty similar to the M41200 that I've been wearing for the last few years, but with details more reminiscent of the early '50s. They're not—pretty much everything besides the fabric is different. The legs are still very full, but the cut is slimmer and shallower up top, and it feels very much like what I've come to think of as a '50s-style cut. I like them a lot. I'm not sure how much day-to-day wear they'll see (I'm still mostly caught up in the 1001xx DSB and the '51 601xx), but I'm planning on transitioning them in as my climbing pants since they offer a completely unrestricted range of motion and since the M41200 that I've been using are starting to wear thin in a few places. It shouldn't take long for them to start showing some good wear. Also shown: Stevenson, Russell

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I went through a largely similar process—tried waffle weave & liked how they felt but couldn’t get behind how little drying power they had The lack of decorative bands was a definite selling point as well (it’s that, in particular, that pushed me towards Towels by Gus over the other options working from the same mill)
  24. @pomata You're right. It doesn't mean there's no difference. As I said, it means there's a difference in the DAC or the amplification stages. CDs aren't like tape or records. There's no finesse involved in getting the data off of the medium: it's just 1s and 0s that are read directly onto an onboard RAM. This is the same whether you're loading the bits straight into a £2 000 deck or storing them on your computer. It's what you do after reading them that makes the difference.
  25. I’ll add another vote for just ripping all your CDs & getting set up to play them from your computer (or whatever other device) There’s no such thing, really, as higher- or lower-quality CD players, as far as actually reading the CDs goes—that’s a big upside to digital media—any quality difference will be in the DAC and amplifier, and any decent DAC + amp will plug into your computer just as easily as to a CD player, so you might as well save the physical space. A thousand CDs takes up a good few shelves, but it’s no more than ~3 TB of actual data, which is plenty cheap these days
