    Quickly done iphone but hope this is ok - fabric is still starchy but another wash and some wear will get it nice and soft

    When you post your smiling fizzog and Maynard posts a fit pic, I’ll be beaming from ear to ear

    I can oblige the second request (it was still a wee bit damp in that pic so I never bothered … in fact on reflection I rarely button any of my short jackets … anyhoo) - but the first request is a definite no go, in fact I think you are getting very demanding …

    I can’t compare to other brands, and the cut has a big influence, but for anyone who can match these to other FW denim I don’t recommend going up a size.

    Their hats are generally around 59 ~ 60cm which is equivalent to 7 3/8 to 7 1/2 They’ll nearly all stretch a bit, and I’ve a couple that came up a wee bit bigger so I just tucked a self-adhesive felt strip under the band

    Well it’s been great ‘drying weather’ so I think the shoulders turned out alright although the jacket is all over the place because the wind was so strong - it was the only shot when both plackets were nearly in position instead of blown open Bootleggers Wavy, Freewheelers S506XX, Rainbird Tee, S601XX c/w with White’s SD + Tender

    A good bit bigger - I’ll compare accurately when they’re out the washing machine and dried

    Here’s the clown show - it seems most pre-wash fits demand barefoot for some reason, so here I am in the garden with fucking winter type squalls barrelling in from the North Sea just to keep @Flash happy because he said you need before and after shots I got the non-wash version - this is FW first for me, Bootleggers were usually non-wash, but I just buy wash versions when it was Freewheelers because I just want to wear the stuff and not arse about for another few days since I’ve already usually been waiting long enough, plus I know the denim, but this is new denim so I thought why not …

    I’ll give you that, but I’ll also bet you good folding money that’s not the case - water quality has got to meet all sorts of criteria

    A new denim. Coarser hand, thicker yarn, heavier weight, more noticeable vertical fall, darker dye. Not dramatic differences perhaps more iterative - but very very very nice IMHO Colour isn’t true here (it’s really overcast outside and it’s just an old iPhone since the tux is just out the box)) but just posting this to give thanks to the skills of a special old lady …
