    Hey y'all, I'm looking for a little insight on the fit of the standard 1001. To my eye it looks similar to a Sugarcane 1947, does anyone here have experience with both? Or another comparison you can offer? Thank you.

    @Broark Love the shirt! Where do you buy your FW stuff from?

    @hurhur what do you do once the soles wear out?
  6. @Broark Nice man. Where did you purchase from?

    @generic_guy Are you aware of the 50s model Jelado makes? No wonky pockets on those!

    @Double 0 Soul Just to clarify, the jacket is a Valencia St (s)506? Looks fantastic. I am after a 555 Levi's jacket but they are real pricy when I find them. Cheers!

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Let's unpack this a bit. Isn't the revolutionary aspect of capitalism precisely the act of aiming to undercut your competitors? This capitalist-ethic apologist stuff you speak of makes my head spin. Am I, as the consumer, supposed to spend extra money (sometimes as much as 30-40% more) just because it's ethical to support a business in my own country? Isn't purchasing from a domestic retailer sign enough of my support? What's more, I am invited by the retailer to justify away their higher costs as some second-order act of ethically sound solidarity? We live in a world of globalism. I am buying made in Japan jeans... from Japan. Denimio isn't the only business out there that sells stuff below SE's prices, and I can't imagine that every one of them is "shady". Don't get me wrong, I patronize SE when I can and y'all's customer service is absolutely tops, but to imply that the consumer should even enjoy spending extra money because such gestures are ethical? We approach a dangerous ethics when such ethical imparatives themselves become a luxury commodity, available only to those with disposable income. No?

    @Thanks_M8 Denimio is the way to go for most brands. The prices are usually the Japanese domestic price, with free shipping for purchases over ~$150 USD. Hard to beat so long as they stock what you're after! Never had any problems with them, even when purchasing proxy items. Cheers.

    Unknown Japanese Brands

    There's a video of the clutch magazine guy (sorry dunno his name) talking about the denim with the head of the brand on YT. He had very good things to say about it.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Yes, absolutely still the same thing. I wear a 31 or sometimes a 32, and in these, I am a 33. (also the sizing on denimio's site is overmeasured by about 2-3cm). These W33's are an 81cm waist.

    @julian-wolf Yes these the MiUSA 47s. There is a 1946 model with 12oz Cone that was made earlier in 2019 that is around as well. I am excited to see what SC will do next beyond the most recent MiJ 46s. I would really enjoy a MiUSA 20-30s pair of canes.
