    Examples of Greencast/Redcast denim?

    Red cast indigo, aka pure indigo ( no sulphur dye mix) Green cast indigo ( a bit extreme though, there are a lot of mild greencast in japanese denim that you can tell by the greenish hue), Sorry for the terrible background it was taken long time ago at my work place.

    wear it like 5 days a week. One soak, then straight up no wash for 3 months. Two hand wash so far. Just like some members here I like to build up the whisker first then just wash them whenever I like... Indigo chain stitching with union special machine, love the wonky selvedge. CSF level achieved lol.

    From the photo & video we can tell that this indigo yarn is dyed by rope dye. So the core is white. I guess it probably fades like synthetic indigo that is rope dyed? A lot of natural indigo denim produced by Japanese are said to be done by " hank dye" which keep the yarn soaking indigo thus the core is not white (this is also a myth as I never owned one or saw a cross section photo like above of hank dye yarn) I think Some 45r jeans are using natural indigo in rope dye too, boncoura is cheaper if we compare to 45r

    @Lazerr I bought it from Alphashadow 3 years ago, just went with my actual waist size + 10% shrinkage for the initial soak. Its a pity that Alphashadow is no longer carrying them or even going out of business

    The WWII is too expensive for me, sigh... Here are some of my 66 photos, my favourite fabrics so far.

    It might not be good to talk too much politics here but here are the comments from HongKong, police brutality is everywhere. Last year during HongKong protest there are more than 7000+ protester arrested & 0 police was charged for anything. Now we lose freedom of speech, we cannot say anything against the government publicly or even privately. There are always people living worst than you, so we have to cherish what we have at the moment.

    Got my number# 198, nice melange look pocketing. The jean fit me tightly on the waist, even though the waist measure is about 4-5cm smaller than the size chart. I will soak it tonight & hope it won't shrink too much
