    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    First time checking in with my pair. When these arrived, I was concerned with the undersized waist. They fit nice and snug in raw state. I almost sold them, but ultimately wound up giving them a warm soak and then dried them around a custom wooden waist stretcher. I’m happy with the decision to keep them, as the waist did stretch considerably. In fact, I’m very pleased with the fit and they are very comfortable. The high rise is wonderful. In terms of this particular denim, and I am nitpicking here, I’ll just say I much prefer the 20’s and 50’s Tcb denims. I don’t dislike this 40’s denim, but for some reason it doesn’t excite my passions. This pair has not been worn hard and have held up nicely. Just one minor repair to the back pocket stitching. A great pair of jeans.

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    After seeing the upcoming Warehouses 201 repro, I became nostalgic for the LVC pair I bought in 1999. I’m confident that most LVC pants at the time were being sold for $150 at the Antique Boutique in NYC. This 201 repro however was the first I saw that it was more, but I can’t remember if it was $175 or $200. Funny, but I can remember the ‘oldest pair’ sold for $225. Anyways, here are some photos of one of my favorite pairs of jeans.
  3. @Duke ManteeThat WW1 belt is interesting. Trying to extrapolate the functionality. At initial glance, it appears to do an excellent job of complicating your ability to keep your pants up! Maybe the belt’s function is to hold and organize tools or ammo? Thanks for posting this photo.
  4. That Barnstormers belt looks unique. At least I’ve never seen one similar. Does anyone know if this is an original design?

    That 201 will be hard to pass up. I’m getting backed-up, I have a pair of the WH1936 next in line. But… A rise of 33 or 34cm (for size 33) would put the 201’s to the front.

    Agree. About perfect.

    All around good guy Konrad Sauer has been using his immense skills to make small runs of belt buckles, often from Damascus steel. His main focus is making infill hand planes for woodworkers. High level craft from a maker in full stride.

    I’m looking for a Japanese retailer that carries Orslow and ships to the USA. Thanks.

    That od Motorcycle Dispatch jacket is an itch I desperately want to scratch. Anyone seen dimensions for this (42)? I emailed Warehouse directly last week, but haven’t heard back.
