    That kaihara 505 fabric is such a stubborn fader, it’s crazy. I’ve worn my to pieces and it’s like it’s not really poaaible to get them to that true light blue state all round

    My San Antonio ‘55s are about a year into their rotation. There were a couple of months where it was out of rotation because I didn’t get around to repairing them. This denim is really something else. It’s been a pretty stubborn fader, but it’s really starting to come through now.

    Amazing fit man. Say, did they change the cut to make it more period correct? I remember it as more modern. What does it measure in the back
  5. Feel like the jacket has started settling nicely. Doesn’t flare out in front like when it was brand new. The sleeves are also showing some promising progress.

    Vintage Denim?

    Man, have i scored today. I was browsing around some local ad sites and came across this beauty. From the label I knew this was good. But it’s full of surprises for me! It has “O” buttons and shares many details with my 557xx from the same factory. Same buttons, same sleeve cuff construction (and the button adjusters on the back) - all common of the “O” factory. Yellow bartacking, meaning this is definitely one of the earlier ones. the stitching is all over the place with the colormatching - two tone on one side, all yellow in the other. yellow in the collar and pockets and armhole, orange everywhere else. seen also is my late 60s/early 70s Big E, which is more as to be expected. They also have vastly different silhouettes. This new one is way more boxy and more tight in the shoulders. Very 557 in the fit. Had it not had a label, I’d have called it a 557. I’m pretty sure this a transition model! Stumped to find it. And at a bargain price. Excuse the bad lighting throughout haha

    Leepro Appreciation

    I've been looking out for a 101-j, but i'm not really sure how to size them. My late 60s 70505-0217 is a 42 and that fits pretty slim on me, but generously enough for me to have a hoodie or such underneath. Think I'd prefer a 44. tips for sizing the J??

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    Does anybody know of places in mainland and no brexit EU that sells leather jackets? I’m thinking of parting with my Aero Highwayman as the I can’t really get comfortable with the fit.

    SOLD Pike Brothers N1 deck jacket up for sale. These are really good repros. 100% wool liner. Plenty of wear left. Some bleed from my jeans on the bottom. Not the cleanest, but also no stains. I bet If you take it to a dry cleaner, it’ll be spotless broke a thread in one of the hand warmer pockets, easy fix. I feel it’s pretty generously sized for a medium. I’m at 90kg and around 183 and it fits me, albeit snugly. 120€ SOLD

    My 554 San Antone’s starting to come to life. 6 months of mostly daily wear. Been washed fairly frequently too. Can’t wait to see how they look after about a year of wear. I love these jeans. Fit like a glove and no need for a cuff.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Almost 3 year old Lofgrens now with a full resole by Miyasaka of Brass. Had the pleasure of meeting the man himself in Berlin while travelling. Amazing job that he did. These started out in life as a pair of natural CXL pair (there are some photos of them around here…), but I decided to try my hand at dying them. Now ready for many more years.
