    Shoes that look better with age...

    Delivery was delayed to sometime around end-of-year

    I have a pair on the way in the coming weeks. I'll follow up with sizing notes when I have them.

    Drinkwater's Cambridge is the only authorized repair store for Paraboot in the US, so they know their stuff if you have questions about sizing or want to special order a size/style they don't have in stock. Totem Brand Co in Philadelphia also carries Paraboot. If you know your size, you might be able to save a few bucks by ordering from a European retailer.
  5. Mister Freedom Lot 64 or Warehouse 1001? The measurements are similar, so any comments on fit or thoughts on the two would be helpful!

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Some really impressive fades in this thread! This is my pair after 300 or so wears. It's hard to capture the true color, but the jeans are definitely more "blue" all over than before. They're also due for a crotch repair, so I'll try to get some detail pics up soon.

    Late to the thread but +1 for Haveston for NATO straps. I have one from their Parade Series I like a lot.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    My most recent EMS shipment took about six days. Three of those days were "Posting/Collection", so the actual transit time was somewhat quick.
  9. How does you guys generally size for the Warehouse 1001? My size 31 TCB S40s are a great fit and other posts here suggest going the same size in WH usually works out. My only hesitation is that the waistband may stretch out more than I'd like. I usually prefer going belt-less.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    The waistband is elastic, so I'm thinking the measurements are taken when the waist is completely unstretched. Still seem oddly small though. Bears has more reasonable measurements.

    I have a lighting kit I barely know how to use, so the sun's my go-to

    @Flash curious how you're lighting the photos? I'm certainly not a pro, but it looks like the light is dropping off towards the back of the photos. Adding some kind of white poster or foam board opposite your light source may help brighten up some of those spots. This guide has some helpful images on that kind of setup.

    @Smallrod, here are a couple of post-wash pics. The fabric lost some of its sheen and looks a bit more blue to the eye. Looking forward to seeing how it ages.

    Sure. I'll put some up in the next couple days. I was pleasantly surprised by how light the fabric is. Definitely crisp and sturdy, but not so heavy as to feel like a jacket. It feels somewhere in between a very crisp chambray and a canvas fabric. MF has it clocking in around 8oz in their specs.

    I finally got around to giving the Appaloosa a cold wash and took some measurements before and after. Just some slight shrinkage in the shoulder and chest, which is consistent with MF's size chart in other lots and sizes. Lot D - Large Before wash: Shoulder: 44.2cm || 17.4” Chest: 55cm || 21.65” Length (from shoulder): 71.1cm || 27.99” Sleeve: 62cm || 24.41” After wash: Shoulder: 43.5cm || 17.13” Chest: 53cm || 20.87” Length (from shoulder): 71.1cm || 27.99” Sleeve: 62.3cm || 24.53”
