    I actually dreamt of Oki Rainbows last night. Can’t believe I missed these.

    Agreed. I usually wear a 36W but the SC1966 is very billowy and I fit a W34 much better.

    @shredwin_206 Perfect. Which fabric?

    I liked the M stitch. I thought the fabric coming down to such an exaggerated point was a bit much.

    I agree on the pockets but one of the nicest and authentic western patterns and colors. Do they include the hanger with purchase?

    @graytrain, Great pair and I like the cinch but the original wearer appears to have been quite shin length challenged.

    These would look even better with a better type of background, maybe Navajo Rug ;-) Which lot and size are these? Thanks

    @vIGGiou riou Those are one of my all time favorite because the fades have so many layers. I hope you will chronicle them after each soak/wash. Extraordinary view.

    @beautiful_FrEaK Thank you. How does the Pandemic appear to be affecting JP retailers? I have not noticed any elasticity in pricing from my own surfing...nothing like what has been experienced here in the US. For example, although the MF Sale was initially quite exciting, I certainly hope it is not the precursor to closing up shop as a result of the Pandemic effect on the economy.

    @cause4pause What is 2nd? Thanks

    I think they would be great with many patterns/colors of vintage rugby shirts, especially once they start fading in areas. Maybe with some Stan Smiths.

    @vIGGiou riou Oh that light blue is hideous but they remind me of a pair of Levis I had from the 70’s and bring back fond recollections of Saturday at the Roller Rink. I think they were much wider at the hem (cuff) back then. Have you thought of which shirts you will pair them with? Could be a really cool look.

    If this image had been posted just a few days earlier, I would have thought it was the Resurrection with one twist...Jesus clothed in Denim.

    What? Maynard was being a wiseacre? Thats a first. Next thing you know it will be identified as South Miami Beach on some holiday like New Years or something. Its getting to where you can’t believe things on the internet anymore ;-(
  18. Heavy oils will mat down the suede hairs. Some guys like this look but absent the suede hairs it just looks like leather. How much darker are you hoping to achieve? There is an aerosol mink oil that works well at darkening suede a few shades but it is temporary of 2-3 months before reapplication is necessary. Its by a reputable leather dye and treatment company called Angelus. Coconut oils risk becoming rancid as well.
  19. Thankyou. Deleted incorrect information. Although sunlight is natures best method of viral inactivation, tests have not proven that is effective against this Coronavirus. I live in Thailand and it was being reported that Sunlight was effective but that claim has been modified. Much depends on the angle of the sun, the ozone level, and even elevation. Although it has not been proven or disproven to inactivate this Wuhan Coronavirus, if you live between the Equator and the Tropic of Cancer, based on studies of other viruses, sunlight UVC likely helps.
  20. @SuperJackle (Deleted.) I admire your diligence. I don’t really understand all the people joking about not following distancing guidelines, etc.. I have heard it said the C-19 is just not deadly enough to convince the dim-witted.
  21. @SF2Turbo Fabric Softener is great to make new denim more comfortable against the skin but the wax coating it applies to the surface of the fibers limits the abrasion that is responsible for the relase of the dyes. I hope its OK with Double O that I posted this. I didn’t ask his permission...Lol

    Now that is what a pair of jeans should look like. Wearing well. @ecsong187

    @Punch, This latest photo fits great. It was really just that one directly from the front that appeared wide hipped.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    @Punch That is the similar fit I have with the various 1966 pattern and why I can’t wear them. FWIW, I agree the appearance from the front is unflattering (poofy in the hips) but the fit from the backside is really a decent fit and look. Maybe just walk into rooms backwards when you make your first appearance! Do you think sizing down would be beneficial? After all, the waist will stretch?
  25. Great consideration for several brands that rely on Zimbabwe long-fiber cotton such as SC. But can we ever get a reliable report from fair-trade type certification agencies? Not being cynical, are there some you trust? Thanks
