    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.

    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.

    @youngofthesoonest Some photos back on 269 of the thread, though they are a couple months old now. The jury is still out of the denim, but things are shaping up nicely.

    These MiUSA 47's continue to do their thing...

    This particular pair was produced in 96. I agree, these have all the fixings! Every detail really works for this model.

    Won some deadstock s702's overnight. Slowing adding to my MiJ Levi's family.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    On another note, I hope y'all are making sure to steep your mask in boiling water once a week.

    Authoritarian regimes seem pretty terrible for democracy, human flourishing, etc., and so on... but when you need to stop the spread of a virus... Democracy has its limits! Just like market socialism, just like... I've been following the Uighur crisis for a couple of years. Forcing women to drink sterilizing concoctions... it's beyond heinous.

    Unfortunately, our populace (in the US I mean) failed to demonstrate that they could avoid large gatherings (and they still fail to demonstrate this). Besides the fact that our government couldn't get up to speed for the first 4 or 5 months (mask good or not, is distancing necessary, etc), the sheer lack of common sense demanded blanket closures as COVID numbers became more dangerously leaning into the 'out of control' category. I'm not trying to make this beloved place of denim political, but have a look at the data for southern states and the failure to distance properly. The whole thing has been a complete cluster made worse by political rhetoric from even the best-meaning folks. This is new territory for us, so there are bound to be some intellectual failures as policy becomes largely reactionary. The real kicker has been the transfer of wealth... Anywho my Levi's 201s are fading faster than @Maynard Friedman told me they would :O must be from sitting around for 12 years!

    Because they're valuing the jeans via the 'sign-value', where the sign, in this case, is the 'raw-ness' of the denim which is a 'premium' feature - it's desirable to have that 'old-style' denim and so forth. Nevermind the extra labor involved in producing a washed product. Exchange-value is on the whole gone from most commodities, especially commodities that are heavily associated with a sign (ever more so is denim associated with its sign and not its exchange or use value). Unfortunately, we've been bamboozled
