    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Found some '54s in the op shop for $10 and they fit perfectly. Some wear but plenty of life left and ability to make an imprint. I was a bit sceptical of getting them from Levis seeing as they were out of the premium raw selvedge game for a while but they have clearly put a lot of care into these, the roping in particular is quite impressive.

    Anyone rocking the 40th anniversary pieces? I picked up the type 1 jacket and it is serving me well. Worth a wash to shrink the sleeves (comes one wash but has some shrink left in it and I have short arms). Some of the nicest denim to the touch I have experienced.
  3. I'm looking for a pair of straight or very soft tapered jeans with a higher rise, room for a big bum, and a lighter weight for summer (around 12-13oz). My options so far are: TCB 20s TCB Catboys Sugar Cane 1947 SDA 40th Heritage Warehouse 1001 I like the cinch back on some of these but it isn't a deal breaker. Only brand I own something of in list list is SDA, they also have the highest price, rather keep it low as they won't be my primaries. Open to other options.
  4. I want to start using natural dyes. I have bought some Indigo and Kakibishu and plan to make others with vegetables. When it comes to overdying does anyone know how the Kakishibu would work? I know it is used to coat century denim often, but I kind of want to try coating some old, slightly faded indigo jeans. Also any other natural dying projects that would work with a denim/workwear aesthetic?

PBJ x Okayama Denim Kakibishu in Relax Tapered - https://www.instagram.com/p/Bqq0OyFh7UI/ OR SDA x Denimio Kakibishu High Relax Tapered - https://www.denimio.com/dm003kakishibu-denimio-x-sda-collab-kakishibu-model-kakishibu.html Tried the PBJ Relaxed tapered on in-store and couldn't button them up at my normal size so may go up to 35/36? Haven't tried the SDA as it is a new fit. My perfect fitting pair is a pair of Tanuki RHT size 34 which seem to have similar measurements to both but no hip or seat is given and that tends to be the important one for me.

    What does everyone think of the new SDA x Denimio collab? Tossing up between the kakishibu one and the upcoming PBJ x Okayama https://www.denimio.com/dm004kakishibu-denimio-x-sda-collab-kakishibu-model-kakishibu.html

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Anyone grabing the Sugar Cane x Lone Wolf boots? They are gorgeous! I can't justify another pair of boots right now and my black Beckman's fulfil the same role but DAMN!

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    So I have lapsed on going to the gym since travelling and realised, partially due to travel eight loss but also because I am no longer quatting jeans fit so much better. When you're a big thighed denimhead it turns out you can skip leg day.
  9. I love relaxed taper as someone with a larger bum and thighs than most 'westerners' (typical among some Jews and middle eastern people). The higher rise fits over the bum so you can bend over properly, and the thighs don't feel like they are going to split when you put pressure on them but can still end up with a slim silhouette and accentuate the boots. Plus I want slim jeans to look slim relaxed and comfortable but the classic slim often looks skinny on me. Not just to do with eating too much, many body types. Just store more mass in the bum and thighs than others.
  10. Does anyone have experience with Kapital century denim? Wondering if I should soak it.

    Just picked up a Trophy t-shirt in a large but fits me pretty slim, not sure if I should keep it. Such a beautiful sturdy almost sweatshirt like construction though...

    I got the weight wrong, it is 26. 27.5 was speculation in the comments I think. Looks like quite a loose weave but yea. Will definitely post a review when they arrive! Ordering was just done via DM on Instagram. Seems strange to me but issued as a proper invoice through PayPal.

    They just announced a new run of these and I picked up a pair. 27.5oz sounds intense but the denim looks wonderful!

    Had my eyes on a cinched back wider pair of jeans for a while that still has belt loops. Just saw the preorder for the 40th anniversary heritage pair and jumped on it immediately! The 13oz will hopefully give it some nice movement and soft creasing. Would have loved the type 1, I was in Osaka just as it was announced and was shown the sketches and measurements. Don't think I'll manage to pick that one up though.

    40oz seems super excessive but I did just buy a pair of 27.5oz handwoven. Hopefully the loose weave makes up for the weight but I'm not sure what I'm getting myself into.
