@Duke Mantee aren’t those the 36 that someone posted about a couple pages back? I believe they were brand new 

Was it same ones bro? Well they’re going to be a nice pair for someone

Something a little different for the collection courtesy of @lee porter, FW 661ZXX.
These are slimmer than what I normally wear, but they fit quite nicely. Length is just right to wear these without a cuff.
This is actually my first pair of zippered repro jeans. Feels weird after wearing button fly repros for the last 10 years. 
They'll be nice to wear with sneakers in the summer. I'll try to get some fit pics up soon.

I almost grabbed a pair of those but I think they’d be slimmer than I like.

@shredwin_206 they're definitely slim, but compared to other slim cuts I've tried (and subsequently sold) the taper is a lot more proportional.

If you're into slim cuts you'd better sell me those Ooe's mate, no need for them to languish :ph34r:

Aye, I’ve got them, what’s the big deal? :sleep::laugh:

Anyway, it’s the fit man - how’s the fit?

@Duke Mantee fit seems good, definitely a little more trim in the top block than my other 601's (661Z included).
I'll probably keep these on ice for a bit while I keep focusing on the S601's. How's the shrinkage on this denim?

Same shrinkage as all the rest - they’ll come TTS

These are slim cut - the 661s have plenty room in the top block and taper significantly, these are definitely not that

Was looking around for Derrickman fit pics and came across this on Google images. You receiving any commission for this Duke? :D

@Duke Mantee Do you think FW will ever make the wrangler jacket repro again? Have they ever produced a Lee jacket repro?

I don't think they've done a riders jacket but they did a 91b. I think it looks better with black denim

googling brings up all @Duke Mantee pics

It’s hard to say - I’d hazard that about 20-30% of designs have been reissued at some point (other that what FW call ‘permanent’, which are reissued on a sporadic basis). So it’s possible, but your guess is as good as mine.

That was a Bootleggers issue in black canvas … and I’m selling it

Great fit Carl! I wasn’t keen on the colourway when I first saw it … happy to admit I was wrong

Thanks, Duke! Glad I went with the bigger option.

Received a few more odds and ends this week, first up are the Timber Beast trousers.
These might be the heaviest pants I've ever handled, the front is entirely double faced.
