 Been wishing for a type 2 with the later style buttons! A good bet to figure this is the denim found on the 661zxx? 

661zxx is 1951 denim

Interesting, I missed that post. I wonder what this sub-label is all about. 

Motor Psyclone is a new idea to represent 30-40s Hot Rod Culture and 50-60s Motorcycle Culture

Ah. I don't know why I thought those had different denim. Do you know anything about the denim or the fit on the jacket or jeans? Looks like black denim almost?

Hopefully I didn't get a 'factory 2nd'.

Just got my package. Loving the higher rise on the 43s and the 45s, super comfortable cuts. I will post some photos once they settle a bit. Thanks to everyone for the recommendations.

My favorite pants I've seen from you @Broark! Beautiful shade of indigo coming through with some nice vertical falling. Very nice. And yes, lovely belt from Duke.

Thanks for the kind words, I think the key here is consistency. I’m the first to admit that I usually get distracted by another pair around the 6 month mark. :blush:  Not the case with these at all.
The most impressive thing I’ve noticed with them is that none of the threads are showing any sign of breaking. Usually by now I see a few coming loose.

@Broark @Duke Mantee is the thread cotton or poly/cotton?

@Duke Mantee Is the Oregon trail jacket a pattern FW makes periodically? Would love to have one.

Sorry no - it’s only ever been issued once … 2010

Wow, wild to see some still floating around then. Well, in any capacity, I would love to get my hands on some FW woolen stuff.

Here are the 43s. The darker shade of indigo is noticeable to the 51s. As always the details are fantastic. Hope to have them looking like @shredwin_206's in a couple years ;)

You’ll always see the odd item from yesteryear floating about somewhere - sadly though it’ll most likely be a small size, but I’ve got lucky once or twice when I went back for something I might have passed up when it was issued originally

@CSL looks great! enough pockets for every piano note

I've had my eye on the Jefferson coat because of all the pockets, dunno if I could pull it off though. My type 1's single pocket is normally empty anyway . I usually go for a solid color underneath but got inspo for this. Does It work or do I need to match the patterns closer?

jeans are the 51

here are the s601 with @Duke Mantee belt

@JMS@Broark your pairs make me want to wash mine more @MikeNyours makes me want to keep them babying them so they stay darker longer\

@LazyS I’ve got the best of both worlds, washing the jeans regularly and the jacket infrequently. Will get some photos of the two side by side up soon.

@LazyS just do what a normal person would do: buy another one and treat it differently to your first pair.

@beautiful_FrEaK Already have! I've been wearing/washing my olive pocket pair pretty frequently since the end of the TCB comp. Decided keep the flannel pocket pair in light rotation until I  get up to the cottage.

@Broark How do you like the 661? are you wearing the 43 still? I still cant pick a favorite between the 51 and s601

Haven't worn the 661 much yet, likely will now that it's warming up a little. It's a very slim cut from the knee down compared to all the other FW I've worn.
Also haven't worn the '43 much either, been stuck on the S601s. :blush:

@LazyS I really think FW got the silhouette right on the s601s. You wear them well. Whether you wash a little or a lot, the denim won't disappoint. I'm with @Broark on the washing routine, only soaked my 507xx twice in two years.

I think it's a close enough match for what you're going for LazyS. Looks cool to my eye. 

Are FW remaking that Jefferson? I thought it was long deleted.

Thanks re the Sasquatch!
