  1. All I said was having the beginning of a post or photo quoted is helpful. Photo being singular so maybe we are in agreement? I don’t know if I have ever seen a forum where such a thing is mandatory though.

    The last time I pointed out a pair of SC on Ebay which I thought were rare, they wound up being commonplace. You think I would have learned my lesson then but here I go again. If they were for equatorially challenged 36W I would buy them. SUGAR CANE EDO AI DENIM JEANS 32 Selvage New with Tags Japan.
  3. Except sometimes it is difficult to know who is responding to who if you do not follow the thread every day. For people like me who check in every week or two then it is very helpful to have the beginning of a post or a photo quoted. As I mentioned to someone else a few weeks ago. The "annoyance" you are describing falls under the heading "First World Problem". Lol Keep it chilled Dude
  4. @501XX4EVER Honestly, you guys never cease to amaze with your knowledge of Levis.
  5. Maybe more like Kevlar but even stronger. It makes a good material for motorcycle pants. If you want to see how marketing works, then check out the Patagonia website where they describe it as made from trees, ie. eco-friendly. Heck, with a name like "Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE-Dyneema®)", it almost sounds organic.
  6. Agree on Dyneema; however, I personally prefer the hemp blend by Patagonia for durability. It is a good fabric but the hemp has difficulty holding dye.
  7. The old Wild Ass denim used to be unhemmed. Thats a great look for everything from flipflops to Wesco Loggers.
  8. Patagonia has also introduced Dyneema blend in their workwear denim. https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-steel-forge-denim-work-pants-regular/56120.html?dwvar_56120_color=DDNM&cgid=mens-pants-jeans-workwear#start=1

    This is really helpful. I might try buying Raw and then hand stretching the length whenever I soak/wash. I have had luck doing that with LVC but still a rookie with SC. When I do this, I think the stretch is actually targeting the weave of the fabric rather than elongating the cotton fibers. Sound right?

    Thanks for this info as it gives me insight on the 50/50 denim. 34W-RAW is reported 35”-35.5” 34W-OW is reported 33” BTW, I recall you occasionally use a clothes dryer. Are your 401’s sometimes dried in a machine? Pedro

  12. @Geeman One word of caution about Buyee and maybe someone can tell me what I did wrong but I got hammered hard with extra fees. I won an auction for $15 and paid an additional $30 in fees and shipping. I attempted to cancel the order. I attempted to pay the Seller and have them keep the item. I attempted to get them to not ship the item. Maybe there is a way to have to approve each purchase rather than have it automated but I could not figure it out. BTW, Buyee required payment by PayPal so you can use that method above to save a few bucks.

    I hope its allowed to attach this link. Its a website that has a few SC models in various stages of fade. Its like looking into a crystal ball as I build my SC closet. http://denim-gallery.heavy.jp/sugarcane/sugarcane-mrfreedom.html
  14. This is the fee which can be avoided by following the steps above: “On top of the wholesale rate, PayPal will add a 3% charge if you’re in any of the following situations: -Purchasing goods from a seller who accepts payments only in a specific currency which you do not hold in your PayPal account.” https://transferwise.com/us/blog/paypal-currency-conversion-rates Pedro
