    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    They're PF Flyers Grounder Hi. Unfortunately discontinued, I believe. The ribbing on the toe cap does look very similar to Pras sneakers.

    200 wears in. I've switched to washing them every month or so since my last update. Have a bit of love–hate relationship with the rise on these!
  3. Do you guys line up the front and rear of the waist band when measuring the waist on jeans? I've seen retailer measuring guides that do and some that don't. Never quite understood if there was a reason for lining up vs. not.

    Runabout Goods

    Really dig the jacket, especially the collar and the pockets. Is the fabric the same duck canvas as the Starborn jacket? I didn't know Runabout Goods did custom orders, so I'm curious how that process went.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Interesting stuff. I was curious how Denimio operates. It sounds like they're essentially a gray market dealer, no? Similar to a gray market watch dealer like Jomashop?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I have a shirt and t-shirt from Freenote. I really like the look and fabric of both, but they're pretty much unwearable when untucked. I'd scoop up much more Freenote gear if they reworked their cuts.

    Keep seeing this fabric come up... Seems like some mill has been busy!

    Watches and Denim

    Thanks @SuperJackle, that's helpful. I tend to lean towards the tool watch end of the spectrum, but I've taken a liking to sector dials lately and Longines's looks fantastic. 38-39mm is my sweet spot, though lug-to-lug height can make a big difference for me. I'll definitely have to try it on in person and see how it wears.

    How do you like the Longines sector @SuperJackle? I've recently started eying it and I'm curious how dressy or casual it feels on the wrist.

    Thanks @unders, @BrownMetallic, @tjandaputra! I spent way too much time calculating the proper hem length when I ordered them. Very happy with the overall fit.

    Gave 'em a wash after 100 wears.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Same as @volvo240thebest. Important to note that Paraboot shoes can be listed in EU, UK, or US sizes, which makes things tricky. For example, both a 43.5 EU and 44 EU correspond to a 10.5 US on Paraboot's size guide: https://www.paraboot.com/en/size-guide. I ended up ordering both EU sizes that corresponded to my US size and returning the slightly larger pair.

  14. I've been considering pulling the trigger on TCB's Tabby's Jacket because it has a shorter body length on it than most chore coat-ish styles (e.g. orSlow). Any other options I should take a look at?
