    Unknown Non-Japanese Brands

    Some C.D.P brand I put some time into a couple years ago. These are the 1944 version.

    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    @julian-wolf They are great. Perfect light weight jacket with enough room for some heavy layering in colder months. Throw it on over fleeces and down jackets for deep winter. Really simple jackets, but I like the details they have for that retro outdoors look.

    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    I believe it's pretty vintage. Maybe early 90s, but I don't have enough knowledge to pinpoint a date. It's USA made for the Japanese market , I think. The tag is in Japanese and it has both sizing on it. US M and JPN L EDIT: starting to think it's a more recent product. Browsing the Japanese site and it looks just like those. It's kind of a shame that you can't get an American made Sierra Designs 60/40 in America any more. Seems like the American market is bigger in Japan or maybe its the market willingness to pay 55,000yen hah

    Yep! Still wearing my contest pair. They really weren't worth submitting by the end of the contest! I'm a slow fader.

    Maybe the Osaka 5 are just more friendy with one another, but a certain 2nd hand series has some familiar arcs.

    Vintage Denim?

    An unissued WWII Diddy Bag I picked up a bit ago. The drawstring was sewn down by accident, so it wouldn’t close very well. That’s probably why it’s in such good condition.

    Vintage Denim?

    I think TCB did a nice job recreating the wonky pocket stitching on their 20s jacket. I really like the look

    Before and after measurements compared to TCB.

    My 20s jacket showed up a couple days ago. My worry was that sizing up to 46 from my usual 40 was going to be a mistake. Turns out that it fits pretty much how I wanted! A little bit loose and very comfortable. I gave it a hot wash and a few minutes in the tumble dryer and then air dried it. The length shortened just a tad and everything else stayed pretty much the same.
