Are the bootleggers 213 and FW 1951 2nd gen different denim than the rest or have they just been washed and worn more than the others? 
those two are my fav. Beautiful shade of indigo to them. 

The 213 is well worn, although I tend not to wear denim jackets all that much, but the 51 is quite a different colour - same with the jeans. FW use the same denim (albeit it’s an iterative process for them) but the dyeing is the thing that varies most.

(Plus I was getting some weird colour cast so I’ve had to manually rectify that and it seems to have exaggerated the difference)

That model was first issued 4 years ago - I’ve got the plain version (for sale)

Pair of 43s and 47s on eBay. I am not the seller but thought I’d pass along the info.

Not sure Nate - probably a good half dozen, possibly more ...

I know there’s mine; a brown body x black sleeve; a green with black pocket trim and khaki knit; an ivory with black trim; the inverse of the previous - black with ivory trim and I’m sure there’s more.

It’s early in my FW life and I’m not in possession of the bootleggers spec sheets

Thanks Duke, that's more info than I was able to find on it. Yours is the only one I can find photos of anywhere online. Do you know if they were all made with goatskin?

But I did promise to replace your 47s - my responsibility as the sender - so all you’ll lose is the arcs

Kudos @shredwin_206. I had my eye on the 47s, which dramatically shot up in price during the closing moments.

So, I'm puzzled by the new Faulkner 3-piece suit. It looks great, and it looks like no shortcut was taken, as usual for FW. However, the fabric is translated as "mix tweed". Is it not pure wool? I'm confused...

My guess is that is referring to the colors in the tweed which are usually a mix of several colors, not a mix of materials. I have several pairs of Harris Tweed trousers and they all have at least 3-4 colors in each fabric.

Well played. :D I haven't forgotten, just not really prioritizing shirts right this second.
I'm working from home and not really going anywhere so...I do still want to order a few. :ph34r:

I’m only joking - he’s a good guy, and you’ll get well treated whatever you decide on and whenever you want it. It’s been a shitty old year as it’s turned out

Shitty year no doubt, once we get EMS back on track I'll be reaching out for a few things.
Just seems silly to buy several shirts right now, all I wear right now is t-shirts since I don't really have to be presentable...

With COVID peaking in the US, I don't think we'll get EMS back any time soon...
