  1. Nigel cabourn made some coveralls and present them at London fashion week a couple of years ago. That's a pretty fashionable event right?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    The practice of sea washing your jeans are still alive and well in Indonesia. So oldblue as one of the leading brands here felt responsible to set things straight. I think they made that post more for their local audiences.

    I really enjoy reading https://www.aiirodenim.com even though the google translate can be sketchy sometimes

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I think an initial wash is a lot more effective than a hot soak in the tub though

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I think sagara made some boots in a similar looking leather a couple of months ago. They don't look really white on the sagara's pair. I think the worn pair looks pretty good imho

    I think they usually include a custom woven tag and maybe some special pocket bags (like IDC and tcb 20s contest)

    New Contest Suggestions

    I'm down for a 40s repro contest be it ww2, 46 or 47. Warehouse or freewheelers would be nice or maybe more obscure brand like fob factory will be interesting. And maybe throw 40s lee style repro into the mix.

    My tcb 50s update after about a year or so. They get washed every other week. Possibly my most favorite and most worn jeans as of right now.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    After wearing a pair of one star almost everyday for the last two years, I decided to bought a 990v5. It's becoming one of my best purchases in recent years. Super comfy and really good arch support (well at least for my feet) Cameo action from the roping effect of my freshly hemmed again tcb 50s

    Studio D'artisan

    @mpukas @geeman Thanks mate. Upon closer inspection, I realize that there's a lot of different details between the older lot 106 and the newer lot 107 (I don't know the 106 year of production but I guess it's at least 5 years old and I bought the 107 back in 2017) The 106 is the overseas model and the 107 is the jdm model so the patch is different as usual. The one thing that surprised me is that the 106 doesn't feature raised beltloops. I really liked raised beltloops so the absence of it really surprised me (I know that the pre lawsuit sda doesn't have the raised beltloops). Other than that a lot of the stitching color is different. On the older 106 copper stitching is really prominent but on the 107 lemon color stitching is the way to go I suppose. I might have to take pictures of the differences tomorrow.

    Studio D'artisan

    Hi guys, about a week ago I just won a giveaway on instagram and the prize was a 106. Really stoked to wear this pair because my previous 107 hasn't reached it's full potential due to an early retirement Looking at them side by side like this reminded me of why I bought an sda in the first place. At first I thought my 107 wasn't really that faded but seeing the worn 107 and the new one wash 106, I realize that I have put some wear on my jeans. Shout out to Limbro Denim and Denim Enthusiasts for hooking me up with this brand new jeans. You guys rock!

    Thanks mate, I also really dig your 50s. One of the many reasons that i bought this jeans is because of the 50s contest from a while back, great contest and seeing all the results from all the contestant made me itching for a pair.

    My 50s after 8 months of effective wear with a lot of soaks and washes. The 50s denim seems to hold their indigo really well, dont know how some of the guys here achieved that grails status looks in less than a year. Hoping they turned out like a real pair of vintage 501xx from the 50s. Not a lot of combs to show Yoke puckering done right Red tab evo Not the original factory hem but I think Batavia jeans studio did a really great job on this Bonus pic of the rusty buttons from couple of months ago
