  1. I am really late to this whole party of IG and Influencers. Reading @mikecch above I at first thought he has a rather inflated opinion of himself and his opinions BUT the fact these brands pay him is good evidence people actually put value in what he says. What a wild concept to me. I am exclusive to SugarCane based on each item description from the Brand which are backed up by photos. Why would anyone take the advice of a guy who gets monetary gain about the product he is shilling? It lacks authenticity. Its not real...its fiction. Its like reading comparisons of motorcycles in various publications, they never offer criticisms but only cheerleading. That being said, mike is just an advertiser...no ill will mike. BTW Buddy. Would you do a write-up for Aero Leather in a Size 44 Brown Horsehide Longshoreman with the sheerling lining and then sell it to me at a big discount? Spread the Wealth ;-)
  2. @Geeman Have you thought about just stopping the IG habit? I have never been on IG and I am happy as a Clam and every moment of my life is unicorns, rainbows and JP denim. (Not neccessarily in that order.)

    I think I am wearing a size too large and the extra roominess is not properly stressing the denim. I need to try a 34W next round.

    @FeloniousMonk Sweet Jesus those are beautiful. The fade and the creasing is way more than my own Okies (40301) with similar time worn. Can you describe wash/soak protocol and detergent used and whether you machine dry? Do you turn inside out? Were those raw or one wash? Man they are beautiful.

    Does the Samurai 20-oz denim shrink more than other brands? I saw a used pair on Grailed tagged 38W that hand measured 34-3/4”W. Gorgeous fading.
  6. @kiya Fascinating. I am not familiar with IG and these recent insights remove any impetus I might have had. It makes me appreciate this forum even more.

    @bartlebyyphonics That sounds like a great investigation...and fun!

    66,000 JPY ?? I would get banned for typing what I feel like telling Levis at this point. I would rather buy 4 pair of SC41047 for that kind of donero.

    Fascinating. How does the new denim compare?

    @MileHighEvertonian Fantastic that at 3 years the denim has much integrity remaining. This indigo sure appears to hold to the fabric far more than Samurai. Kudos on the clothes line and pins and that beautiful stitching on the blue quilt.

    @youngofthesoonest Most excellent photos ! I am at 5 washes currently and I have also soaked them with the hose before I go motorcycling in 100*F heat. Your photos give me much encouragement to stick with these and not swap out for my SC41947. Incredible your red lacquer is still holding fast to the Cobra patch. All of mine has worn off but my scales are in tact since I treat with an Exotic Leather Conditioner.

    Does anyone have some Okinawa’s (50/50) with some good fading they can post photos of? And how long it took to get there. Thanks

    @428CJ Sorry. Poor attempt at humor on my part. I agree completely on the tucked in shirt with belt suggestion to work the proper look. I did not see them as being too low but I would say the cuff is too high although it could be camera angle or boot style. I think with time the denim will betteeconform to his body. Your further description is very observant.
  14. I know just what you are saying then. The entire aging process is accelerated in those conditions. Would be cool to post photos of your favorite “fade”. Its a bold sacrifice to wear high end denim on the construction site. You must be Union to afford the cost...haha.
  15. Does this result in “vintage” fades or 1980 “stonewash” fades of a monochrome? For me, the fade must be equally supported by other signs that come with age such as variations in indigo, fraying at the front pocket and maybe the hem, wallet telegraphing, etc... Otherwise, it stands out to me like a Hollywood type after a visit to their plastic surgeon.
