Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.
cmboland posted a topic in superdenimI think it would be fun to have a thread for us to talk about times we sized incorrectly, unfortunate or untimely blowouts, missed connections with a pair that just would never work out or just random general nonsense for our little community here. So, anyone have any stories to share about when they first got into denim?

Roy. (expurgated edition)
rnrswitch posted a topic in superdenimhttp://www.roydenim.com/ Sorry if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find a thread on this dude. Has anyone around here heard of this guy? I have stumbled across his name and talents over a couple of blogs. It seems he started as a collector of sewing machines and became really interested in Jeans and has since attempted to perfect his skills at making jeans. I believe he made some canvas totes for Cone that were give aways at some trade shows. . Here are some pics of a pair of jeans he has up for sale on the website. RAISED BELT LOOPS I love plain rivets and those buttons holes are nuts. The plain donut hole buttons are also a nice little touch. The price of a pair of jeans sewn by him is $150 made of Cone Mill selvage denim. Pretty good price. Anyone around here purchased a pair?
Tender Co. Denim
braille_teeth posted a topic in superdenimStumbled across this post introducing (?) denim from a UK brand called Tender. If half the things they say on their website are true, this is the most obsessively small-scale thing I've heard of short of hand-weaving the fabric. They hand-dye the fiber, hand-cast all the hardware, hand-tan the leather in tan oak juice, etc. etc. Has anybody seen a pair of these in the wild yet? They have a guidebook which is password protected. I hate being tantalized. Eh?

Standard & Strange / Oakland CA / Info, Updates, Etc
mrsmiff posted a topic in superdenimHi SuFu â€“ We are Standard & Strange, based in Oakland, CA. We're a denim-centric menswear shop. You can find us right at 5010 Telegraph Ave, next door to Pizzaiolo. Our brand list is extensive, to say the least, but here's the highlights: Full Count Ooe Yofuketen Indigofera Masterson's Free Note Rogue Territory Momotaro Japan Blue Jeans Tellason Circle of Friends Naked & Famous Shockoe Thrux Lawrence Monitaly Alden Trickers Yuketen We buy brands that we believe in, without compromise. Initially, it was only Made In USA goods, but as we traveled and were introduced to more and more great brands, we added Canada, Japan, Europe, and the UK to our roster. We're constantly expanding our denim selection with the goal of being able to fit just about anyone to a great pair of jeans, whether it's N&F weird guys in stretch selvedge denim, or 18oz Momotaro Natural Tapers. We take the same approach to shirts, jackets, boots, and everything else â€“ we try to have fits that work for just about anyone. About our name â€“ one of my areas of interest has always been urban development, planning, and use, and one of the standout books in that area is â€œThe Death and Life of Great American Citiesâ€ by Jane Jacobs. There's a passage that's stuck with me over the years: "Cities, however, are the natural homes of supermarkets and standard movie houses plus delicatessens, Viennese bakeries, foreign groceries, art movies, and so on, all of which can be found co-existing, the standard with the strange, the large with the small." (bold emphasis mine). When we found our original space â€“ in Temescal Alley â€“ it was on it's 3rd rebirth â€“ originally horse stables, the store fronts in the alley had long been used as cheap storage lockers. When we built out the space we were tearing out boards that been there for 100+ years. Our goal â€“ whether it's denim, boots, or shirts â€“ is to make sure every person coming through our door gets what they want, even if it's just a shot of whiskey and a warm welcome. The best place to catch us online outside of here is Instagram, and via our email list. Our 3-year anniversary party: The denim wall: When we needed gift cards, we went all in, and made them from brass: We get a bit obsessive about our denim details - here's a macro of Full Count's 100% Zimbabwean cotton: And another because why not: Kapital Century denim and aged button: Finally, Brandon, one of our team, getting serious about some Rogue Territory and Momotaro:
BlackPig posted a topic in superdenimThere has been some discussions regarding Trophy Clothing on other threads recently. I think a dedicated Trophy Clothing thread would be a great place for this exciting brand.

In the future they will be made available from SuFu member Megatron1505 - stay tuned! I bought my Dirt Denim Jacket and Blackie Jacket from move clothing. Dirt Denim Jacket 2605 - Regular fitting jacket and comes in at 14.5oz selvage denim. Very slubby and hairy texture. Blackie Jacket 2905 - Slim fitting. I don't have much info on these jackets other than what I've mentioned. And of course info from Trophy-Clothing website translated into English. So please share your info, thoughts, likes, dislikes etc...
Denim Videos only
public denimy posted a topic in superdenimWhat's up Sufu! I've been lurking the super denim section for a while now and I finally decided to join since no other forum discusses raw denim as much as sufu. Anyways, I wanted a thread that has interesting videos about denim so people can educate themselves about how denim is made or about brands. I'll start off with a few.... Story of Raleigh Denim: Union Special 43200G: I can only upload two vids I guess.
Viapiana Custom Jeans
#GRAY posted a topic in superdenimViapiana Custom Jean, Just received my first pair of Viapiana Custom Jeans in the mail yesterday. I didn't know a lot before I ordered the jeans but I had high expectations due to how detailed everything looked online, viapiana. This was an amazing process and I got to email the producer throughout the whole process. I started by simply picking out everything I wanted. Denims, Threads, Buttons, Zipper, Patch, and other parts of the denim. Then I measured my favorite fitting pair of jeans. I used his way of measuring to make sure he knew exactly what I wanted. In a week they arrived at my doorstep! I choose these jeans because I wanted something simple, clean and had a lot of small detailing. Also I wanted something that would fit like a pair of my skate pants. I had high expectations and these surpassed it. I am very impressed with everything about what this guy does. My Jeans were: I-103RD (17oz Raw Indigo) Light Tobacco Stitching Copper Buttons and Rivets Veg Tan Patch Fit Pictures Coming Soon...
