    What are your jeans doing today?

    Two recently obtained belts, the russet from the famed Equus Leather, the black from @Duke Mantee. Both belts are made from the excellent J & F.J. Baker and Co leather. Worn with about the same frequency. Both belts are carefully and neatly made and the material is superb. Wear and feel about the same, although the Equus belt seemed slightly softer initially. Having said all that, the Equus belt is a little uncomfortable and can be felt on the body, whereas the other belt just "disappears" when worn - it fits perfectly and is not felt at all. In a shoot-out between the two belts, the belt from @Duke Mantee wins by a small but clear margin.

    So finally the belt from @Duke Mantee found me in the mountains of Germany, where my wife and I are struggling to find peace from the war at home in Ukraine.
  4. Lock stitch can work just as well or even better than chain stitch. Also, $10 simple casual trousers from a local shop can be just as comfortable and well made, or maybe even more comfortable and better made, than $300 repro jeans bought and shipped from Japan with all related difficulties of searching, dealing with sellers, long delivery time, customs clearance, sizing guess work and so on. So, since I'm paying $300 for repro jeans from Japan, I definitely prefer chain stitch. It is part of the fun after all.

    Leaving hardware aside, do you count beans like Beethoven?

    I like Warehouse, however the only time the threads ripped at the crotch on a relatively new pair of jeans happened with Warehouse jeans, although they're not the only ones using plain cotton threads...

    I can see now how lucky I am that Mr. Konaka refused to accept my overseas order for his jeans not so long ago. I don't know if I'd be able to live with the discrepancy now - I can't not wear them and my conscience won't let me. What a bummer.

    If anyone can't cope with being disgusted by Mr. Konaka's actions and owns a pair of CSF jeans in size 36 I'm willing to come to the rescue and help get rid of them

    Best treatment. And, as dogs and cats do not watch tv and not following social media they do not afraid to contract disease.
