  1. Any tips for cutting the back cinches, to make them poke through or is it not worth doing?

    Picked up the S555VX25oz, I'm still on the hunt for a WW2 Type 1. This jacket is beautiful, with lots of nice details. This is the heaviest denim I own at 25oz so it will be an interesting experience. Chest Length Sleeve Shoulder Opening 22.2 25.2 25 18.5 19.7 I'm a bit annoyed by the taper, to be honest

    Edwin Jeans..

    Edwin Japan, Concept store Type 2 EDS 001-89. I saw this jacket the last time I was in Japan but for some reason, I didn't buy it, the Harajuku concept store now does international orders so I picked one up. I think this is a great modern type 2. The pleats are stitched down vertically which I have never seen before, going to start wearing this soon.

    Not sure about the length I will measure it during the week. T back was a pleasant surprise to me I didn't see it in any images before.

    I picked up an SD-D01J "The Origin" jacket, it's really nice. My new go-to type 1.

    Maybe construction is the wrong word to use, it just seemed noticeably different to the LVC type 1 I got and I wasn't sure if that was normal: Loose threads, and yellow stitching along the selvedge id which at some points crosses the redline, warp threads seem missing at some points. Now that I think about it, It reminds me of an S506 as if it was made in a rush. I like it but it doesn't seem as clean as my type 1.

    I have been wanting an LVC Type 2 for a while now but Levis increased the price to £340 for some reason. I assumed they would be Made In Japan or Cone Mills for that price. Either way, I wasn't spending £340. There is currently a sale on and I have discount codes on my account and I managed to get one for £224.19. Which I thought was reasonable. The jacket came and it has a lot of "character", and I was so surprised that it is made in Turkey. WTF, how is the original price justified??? The majority of my denim is MiJ so when people mention how poorly made some products can be when made outside of Japan, I thought people were being a bit over the top. This is the comparison between my MiJ Type 1 LINK The construction isn't as clean, is this normal or did I get a battered display model?

    This popped up on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/394085262327, did the type ever have a paper patch?

    Need some help last year I got an S40 jacket size 44, long story short it doesn't fit anything like a 44-inch chest size. Are the measurements on the website up to date, do I really need to get a tag size 50?

    Denim books

    The Denim Manual, it's actually a really cool book. I wish it was bigger in size, there is a lot of information on some of the pages and nice artwork too. https://fashionary.org/products/denim-manual
