  1. Thank you! Yes, I used my wire cutters. I cut it from the inside of the jeans and then darned it with a plain needle and thread. Looks very DIY but I wear them with a belt all the time since they’re 1 waist size above my waist size, so doesn’t matter as much.
  2. @super-thermite nice! Your patch is nicer than mine. Mine is blank. I removed the suspender buttons after two years of struggle and never looked back. They’re really nice jeans. They evolve really good imo. I think it’s about time someone opened a Moto thread. side note - I don’t think freewheelers carry anything remotely similar in width. wearing said jeans, yesterday
  3. I have a cotton one from Dalee & co (deluxware), it’s really nice. They have multiple color options including navy, but I don’t think they have indigo.
  4. These arrived today. Hi back trousers in salt and pepper over dyed chambray. The fabric is amazing in person. Very light, will be great for summer. The color is the most accurate in the last picture, sort of a grayish brown.
  5. Arguably the painter pocket is just as necessary as a coin pocket 😅
  6. 😅😅 if I’m being honest, I do have other jackets, but non of them are denim. I wear a jacket for around 6 months of the year. Having more than 1 got to me to a point where I wasn’t really wearing any of them, so I only left the one I liked the most and sold the others. I am eyeing some type I jackets. Possibly FW. We’ll see.
  7. @AlientoyWorkmachine as far as the hi back trousers go the fit is wide but not balloon - like. Everything is much more proportional than other wide jeans I’ve owned. It’s a high rise with sewed in buttons (including inside suspender buttons), I wouldn’t say it’s a MUST tuck in, but for me at least shirts get a weird bump around my belly button, if I don’t tuck, since that’s where the rise reaches. @Duke Mantee yes I agree. I think it’s the same fabric they use on their 30s jeans, but maybe I’m wrong. In general I find their fabrics to be quite interesting. Kinda wish I lived in a wool- appropriate climate so that I could try their wool trousers and cardigans. @tooth those look really good. I don’t know if you tried them on yourself or but keep in mind that the model on their website usually wears everything extremely oversized. They look much more “normal” when worn in regular sizing
  8. These are the hi back trousers in denim that I purchased from the last year. First pic is a close up on the raw fabric. This is what they were like after their first wash. What they look like now
  9. This is a thread to share opinions and information about the Japanese brand Belafonte (or Belafonte ragtime clothing). I couldn’t find any other thread about the brand, and I think the brand is quite interesting and deserves its own thread. This is their website Instagram The brand style is mostly inspired by early 20th century workwear, but I don’t think they do strict reproductions. You can quite easily order from them either via email or via Instagram account of Tom (which is also the model in their pictures) who has perfect English. They ship worldwide as far as I know. Personally I currently own 1 item from them and have another one on the way. The main reason I decided open this thread (first one for me, so sorry if it’s not too good) is that I can’t really find a lot of info or history about the brand. I did find this little quote from the Clutch Cafe website: “Belafonte was started in 2012 by Noboru Tanaka, a designer from Tokyo, for more than 20 Years. Mr Tanaka's vision with Belafonte is to create clothing that matches his own personal vision and something that he, himself, would wear. In order to do this, production can become a little expensive, but as a small independent brand by doing this they ensure the greatest quality product for their customers. For each season, half a year is spent researching and evaluating what kind of clothing would be produced during the time period Mr Tanaka takes his primary inspiration from. Belafonte don't like to make like for like replicas of vintage goods but rather take the best part of a vintage design and apply their own vision and touch to try and make something that’s uniquely appealing to their customers. This freedom of design is something that Belafonte hold in the highest regard. “ Please, feel free to share your experience and products and anything Belafonte related.
