    I think I’ve confused things mate, that’s a 46 - I put the image there for Doc to see a t-back. He has an interest in old-timey jackets as you know and asked about the FW version. AFAIK FW only make t-back in the 46 so you’re not missing out

    May as well add a similar series of pics for the S506 - more button envy. I’ll try and expand on the graphic I did for the jeans fits and add some other details, then hopefully do similar with the jackets. Anyway

    Belts

    Found them on Etsy, the guy forges from brass, stainless steel and titanium. Hopefully they’ll be as nice in the hand as they are in the pics. But fun is the intention buddy - and thank you for the advice and pointers early on

    Belts

    I bought one of these (with some matching Chicago screws) And some of this Just to try my hand. Plus I usually wear Tender belts but I find they can be a little too thick for more formal style trousers, and I’d bought a thinner Warehouse belt to give me an alternative but it’s shit (probably just because it’s like tissue paper beside the Tender), so this will be something in between … if it turns out ok

    Just my opinion buddy - and like I’ve said (here and on other threads) I’d have preferred t-backs. Others have done it, Warehouse being a good example, but they are bigger and can afford to have those variations and still keep the price down because of bulk

    That’s most definitely a thing - a fundamental in Freudenim psychoanalytic theory

    Bicyclettes

    I remember the chat - Pace make such a lovely bike … and you’ve built that up beautifully. I’m long time past my bike days sadly, too old and too fucked up but I get jealous seeing what you, Paul and others are doing.

    WAYWT 2021 [denim edition]

    Yep - 500 yen They are different, they started out more different and over the years, and more so recently they’ve began to cross over - materials, details, buttons are now shared (on occasion). Fundamentally the Bakehead was introduced to suit amekaji sensibilities of buying a shirt to fit the chest more closely, whereas the Neal represented the a more vintage approach to fit - so while they look very similar, close measurements would show the cut is different.

    No I don’t think they’d want to since it kinda defeats the purpose. I think they look better but I wouldn’t go out and buy one to replace what I already have … I’m not sure many would. Equally, and I know it’s just a turn of phrase, but ‘countless’ might be more like a few dozen or maybe even a few hundred . They’re not a huge company and they don’t produce big numbers of anything.

  15. Has melodeath featured here before @unders ? Asking for a friend knowing you’ve been there, done that and apparently actually have the t-shirt

    I’ve a few pairs of FW jeans, they all exhibit that under any tension

    It’s just a coincidence of events - the English are away celebrating being European Champions, the Americans are away celebrating the fact they don’t need to listen to the English anymore, and everyone else is pretty much in agreement with the American approach in listening to the English

    Absolutely spot on
  22. Thank you i knew Tandy but Scotland isn’t really ‘online’ yet - good craft stores are small and often do little (understandably) to sell other than physical sales

    It’s just a typo - it should say ‘A Car’
