    not my jacket but looks like the same one I own which is the Old North one - it's the 19 oz crossweave w indian black overdye. It also looks like the image is a bit underexposed as it's not really that dark, or at least mine's not.

    @redragon a fit pic would be cool - I'm personally just most curious about the cut.

    @rodeo bill that is a great looking cut. That marbling is wild!

    different shades kind of day. companion denim/sugar cane/ docs sort of surprised there's no companion thread here - they do really great work.

    @cultpop 0217 - Thornton? I've been wanting to pay it a visit since I (sort of) moved back up to the area. On the one hand that part of Chicagoland is like a scarred post industrial sprawl/hellscape on the other hand there's a lot of weird and fascinating industrial history around there. Looking sharp btw.

    congrats @beautiful_FrEaK - if your future is anything like my past year you will be washing more than you'd planned and sleeping much less than that. It's great but those first couple of months can be rough so I'll wish for the smoothest sailing possible for your family.

    Mister Freedom + Warehouse 1003's + Birks. Magical weather in these parts right now.

    Mister Freedom

    Here's my midnight Ranch Blouse. Just an initial warm soak, no washes. Owned for about 20 months, occasional but consistent wear. That's a lens cap in the pocket - don't love the look there but I keep a spare in most of my jackets and use it more than I'd like.

    @MJF9 Thanks - yep. I definitely like the few things I've gotten from them. If I ever fall backwards into a pile of cash I may have to pick up one of their coats too.

  11. Not sure I can give a great direct comparison but I've found darning to be about as good as you can get. It can make the area much stiffer and therefore the edges of the darning become prone to wear - there's a good chance the next blowout will be at the area where the darning ends and the regular denim is left. But at that point you're really usually stringing along a well worn pair and going to enter into the territory of constant care. Not a bad thing, but it's gonna be a different look.

    Just a quick update on my 129 Woads after the second wash. About 2 years old probably 7-8 months of wear. Love the way the fades go to a subtle dusty blue. It's a great cut too - it's on the slim side but doesn't feel it while wearing somehow. I still should get a hem...maybe eventually I'll get around to it. For a shorter dude I'm pretty lazy about that. They'll get be getting more wear again soon as I like them as my primary cooler weather jeans these days.

    THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

    You can't go wrong either way - both are great cuts IMO. I'd go by the aesthetic preference you have in the denim/detailing. I'd second that WH will probably be slightly looser in the thigh - the MF will probably have deeper and more durable pocket bags.

    My DD-1003xx - photographing here for fit mostly lighting isn't the best. I love these things - best Levi's I've ever owned. Only wish the pockets were a bit more robust and that I could have found them raw instead of one wash but whatever. Probably about 70 wears or so at this point but I don't keep track. Maybe one day I'll pick the arcs into some other pattern but leaving them for now.
