    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    The time had arrived for another repair. Should have jumped on this one sooner but it seems to have worked out OK. I tried to follow the direction of the weave but it's hard to control the back-stitch function. I now understand why there are specific machines for this task. I also reenforced the earlier repair.

    It's been a while... Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. FW, FW, Roy, White's
  3. I'm feeling a bit deja-vu about this so sorry if it's already been mentioned. What about the black Mister Freedom Lot 44 model? They are dyed all the way through so maybe not technically 'black denim'.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Is anyone here getting involved with the Stitchdown Patina Thunderdome? I signed up at the last minute. Just got a pair of White's oxfords. No customization other than they did double stitching instead of the stock single. They did advise me on sizing based on a tracing of my feet. I was surprised to find I'm an 11.5 C. I knew about the C width but expected to be an 11. Apparently some things never stop growing...

    Briefly it got cool enough here for jeans & a jacket. Now it's back to shorts weather but I made the most of it while it lasted. Cap - MF Jacket - Labour Union (an impulse buy from Markkt) Jeans - TCB 40s Boots - vintage Chippewa

    Still too hot for jeans here but I did a hand wash on the 40s today which i think brightened them up a bit.
  14. He does storm welt but not Norwegian welt. Found that out when I took a pair of Paraboot in. The storm welt looks just as good in my opinion but if you are set on Norwegian welt you'll need to go elsewhere.
  15. Maybe there's an advanced yogi in the denim community who can shake things up with a new repertoire of poses?

    Yes. That's it, Duke. Speedway had the checker cab version recently. Maybe they found some old stock?

    Duke we may not be talking about the same deck jacket (or color perhaps). I'm after the short version with the elastic ribbing at the waist in khaki. They did recently redo the taxi driver version. Thinking on it maybe I did recently see the dark blue version too but it's the khaki I have my heart set on.

    Right, Duke. I've noticed they occasionally do that. I've been waiting for years for a reissue of their zip deck jacket (without the taxi driver nonsense). I'm happy I got that pinhead Montauk back in the day. Otherwise I might have had to succumb to paying the Markkt price. Anyhow, I look forward to whatever new options appear.

    It is a helluva shirt though. One of my favorites. Are FW making that same one again (the pinhead cotton) or different fabric options in the Montauk pattern?

    AlientoyWorkmachine I'm curious. Why are modern workout clothes better? Are the fabrics more breathable?

Also seen on the same site - https://returntonow.net/2019/04/14/americas-first-hemp-wood-factory-is-being-built/ Might be of interest to Double O Soul^^^
  23. That's a good question. Of course there are lots of cheap, tacky ones at US western wear stores. This place has some interesting vintage ones. https://nativoarts.com/collections/old-bolo-ties?page=2

    What are your jeans doing today?

    In Wyoming for a few days, one state over from JDelage. First photo is the cabin from the movie Shane (1953), a favorite of mine.

    Summers in our part of California are always an ordeal. We have an off-grid power system which is not practical for running an air conditioner. Consequently we just sweat & suffer...
