    Unfortunately Mirror Ball take the cheap route in measurement - they (more or less) take the inches waist size on the label and multiply by 2.5 - it’s not the actual measurement, even though by chance it may well be accurate on occasion. But the new black denims both the B and RB are basically 51 cut.

    If you wear the 1951 in a 34 waist you should be wearing the 601RB in a 34 waist

    Belts

    A plain strap for @Low Key who wanted a belt similar to a model made by SdA. This has a cast brass buckle to match hardware he’s specified for other clothing he has and the strap is a Metropolitan bridle leather which he chose over the Sedgwick bridle - I think because this was struck through and has, initially, a little bit more surface grain (albeit there were many other options). I’ve edged front and backside of the strap, finished those edges with Tokonole and given the whole strap a good coat of conditioner.

    Belts

    A special belt - a bit different from the norm - for a special guy. A long way to go with this but here’s a wee snapshot of some progress …

    It’s not over dyed but I am mightily impressed at how denim-like the fabric (and dyeing) is. Previous black denim I’ve owned always seemed a bit flat; hard to describe but I never thought much of it, or appreciated it.

    601RB 1951 cut, but the fabric is just great

    Just check with Seiichiro. I don’t think they’ll shrink in the wash but the inseam is only about 28 inches to begin - that’s even on the short side for my stumpy legs (I could wear them, but only with boots and the hem cinched)
  13. Since we’ve got Neal reminiscing … this was one of the best gigs I ever went to. The mighty Glasgow Apollo, brilliant venue sadly long gone, with a (reported) 15 and half foot high stage that Jobson, after inviting guys up to sing TV Star, launched a boy from it because he was shite at singing TV Stars, the second guy to attempt it nearly got thrown off but his false teeth saved him …
