i miss the old black warp white weft denim...

Is that denim not gonna be made anymore?

I'm sure i've seen xx-005 black denim in a few shops still in stock.

Hi

Guys, anybody has experience on both PBJ XX-003 and PBJ XX-005.

- I used to wear Levi's 501 but not sure that XX-003 might be of the similar cut or more loose?

- Whether XX-003 model creates similar fades like XX-005?

- I see XX-005 is considered as the best PBJ model but not sure whether it will be a bit loose than tight/slim jeans or tight, any comments?

 

XX-005 is the epitome of a Japanese slim straight fit. Slim top block, medium-to-low rise, slim thigh, and no taper whatsoever from the knee down. 

XX-003 is a relaxed, slightly tapered cut. Bigger everything than the XX-005, but with a gentle taper from the knee down. 

XX-005 would be a closer analog to the modern day 501, but only if you've got a slender frame. Top block and rise is much slimmer. XX-003 doesn't really compare that well. Look into repro brands like Warehouse, Fullcount, Studio D'Artisan etc. for possible closer matches to the 501 cut.

picked up these XX-019-BK's at Rivet & Hide the other week. Went tts, the top block is pretty comfortable. The lower leg is taking some getting used to as it tight from the knee down. 

The denim looks and feels great and we no doubt look lovely when it fades

They are proper comfy aren't they? I didn't size up and mine still feel like pyjamas. Tight pyjamas mind.

@spitfiredealer I couldn't believe it when I felt them in Self Edge.  These are also my first pair under 16oz so that might also play a factor.

 Apologies for the poor indoor pic but I thought I’d share my xx-012

worn on and off for 2 years, no wash, maybe 5 soaks. These don’t get too much love anymore, as they fell out of my rotation.

Something very interesting is happening to my new pair of PBJ 1143 (12oz, Relaxed Tapered, Summer Jeans) in this 97 degree weather in Dubai. All the sweat and humidity is creating something very different from what I have seen so far.

I will update here in a few months.

Not nearly enough love for the PBJ indigo t shirts around here. Here’s a shot of one 3 years old vs brand new.

That’s awesome, I’ve been thinking about picking one of those up lately. I have a two pack of original 3Sixteen indigo tees and they haven’t faded that much at all, so might try my hand at one of these. Just have to figure out sizing.

Broark, I just measured my PBJ indigo dyed (yarn dyed) crew neck t-shirt purchased from Okayama Denim 1 - 2 months ago; not yet washed. Actual measurements for size 6, XXXL are as follows: shoulder to shoulder 21”; pit to pit 24”; sleeve length shoulder seam to end of sleeve 9”; overall length in back from top of chain stitched neck seam to bottom hem 30”. This is a medium/heavy indigo dyed Supima cotton  t-shirt well worth the purchase; one of my favorites!

Thanks @lance, sounds like I might need a 4 or 5 based on those measurements!

Pictured is a size 4 which measures just over 22 inches in the chest after a couple cold washes and about 18 inches in the shoulder. I also have the 3sixteen indigo pack of tees and I like the PBJ tees much better.

Summer in FL, have only tried  it on, it’ll be a mighty slow process at best since the jacket is Ai dyed to the core. I’m expecting a change in color with time but no contrast fades;  looking forward to wearing it, it’s a beauty

#6081 is a beauty - not getting around to wear mine.

try googling pics for PBj 6081 and you get to see a handfull - a member over at IHUK did get one early last year...

Ah, you bought the 6081 too, Foxy2. Moscow weather is much more suited to a 17 1/2 oz jacket than FL. Even so, this is a heavy, double Ai dyed jacket and will take either a long time or much wear before showing evo!

couldn't resist!

can't imagine living in a climate like Florida - I escaped central European summers by relocating to Russia for work. the summer here can be hot, too, but things are much more moderate here. well, that's excluding winter...

only managed to get that jacket soaked so far. it is still super stiff and would need to be broken in in order to make it wearable. I don't expect it to fade in any significant way, but the texture of the denim and the overall color is rewarding enough. maybe I'll manage to get it to soften a bit and mold to my body this fall.

^ Ha, that's the way I feel about Moscow winters (although I've never actually experienced one). The closest I've come is Pennsylvania winters and that's why I live in Florida! I too very much like both the texture and purple indigo hue of the jacket; evo, as the natural indigo changes color, should be wonderful!

Love how saturated with indigo this tee is. Glad I went with the size 5, 4 would've been too small in the shoulders.
Will try to take a fit pic after work today.

      Cleaning out my closet for stuff I don't get to wear as often!  Willing to accept offers.
      1. Himel Bros. Brimaco Raider Cafe Racer - $1750 plus shipping
      This jacket is absolutely insane. Tagged size 36, fits like S. Made with 100% genuine Shinki tea-core horsehide that will gradually fade from deep black to a gorgeous brown as it ages. Weighs in at around 5 pounds and is built to take an absolute beating. Deadstock Lightning zippers, bi-swing back, and of course the absolutely unparalleled quality that David Himel is known for. If you know leather jackets, then you'll know that this is the creme de la creme. Retails for $2450.
      Worn lightly and still has plenty of breaking in left to do. It's a shame that I have to sell this as it's just slightly too small for me. Would totally be interested in trading for another leather jacket of similar quality in a larger size.
      Description from Himel's website: 
      "The Raider jacket is an homage to one of the greatest café racer jackets ever made. Brimaco or British Mfg. Co of Montreal, Canada designed this iconic jacket in the 1950's after attending motorcycle races on the Isle of Man. The jacket has a distinctive British feel with a longer straighter torso and a simple clean back with bi-swing expansion gussets and a long chinstrap. We own so many originals of this great design that it barely required any tweaking, and this model uses our limited supply of original 1950's and 1960's Lightning zippers."
      MEASUREMENTS: 
      P2P: 20" 
      Shoulders: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.5" 
      Back length: 26.5" 
      Front length: 24"

      2. The Real McCoy's M-422A Flight Jacket - $1150 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/mcslLUs7SuOKnR9V2Rdf[/img]
      Absolutely stunning M-422A flight jacket from The Real McCoy's New Zealand. If you know The Real McCoy's, then you'll know that everything they make is of the highest standards, from the material to the construction. This jacket is made with the finest goatskin and mouton fur and is built just impeccably. Faithful to the original details, but superiorly made.
      Measurements: 
      P2P: 21" 
      Shoulder: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.75" 
      Length: 25.75"
      3. Needles/Nepenthes (Engineered Garments) Horween Shell Engineer Boots, resoled by Brian the Bootmaker - $1500 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/ePB7rWcfRrKeG75LT7SO[/img]
      Needles (Engineered Garments) Engineer Boots made with genuine Color No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan in tag size 9UK. I'd say they fit pretty TTS, although there is plenty of room for one to wear thicker socks.
      These were picked up from the Nepenthes shop located in New York City. Needles is the sister company of Engineered Garments (both owned by Nepenthes). This pair has also been re-soled by Brian the Bootmaker (Role Club) and converted to his signature hand-welt. They're really fresh too - worn under 10 times. Truly an amazing pair of boots. Shell cordovan engineer boots are pretty hard to come by, especially ones made with Horween (most other shell engineer boots are made with Shinki cordovan).
      4. The Flat Head 6002W Type II Jacket - $350 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:90/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/RINrxGgSFazJbCpUp1cI[/img]
      Classic Type II jacket by The Flat Head in their Pioneer denim. Gently worn, practically new. Retails for over $500 at Self Edge.

      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5

      Pretty sweet Type I jacket by Evisu. Sick details all over, well worn and faded.

      opening 19 inches 
      sleeve 24.75 inches 
      overall length 23 inches 
      shoulders 18.5 inches
      6. Iron Heart Indigo-dyed Waffle Work Shirt (IHSH-96) - $225 plus shipping

      Worn a handful of times, not really my style. No damage and in excellent condition. Fits excellent as either TTS or slightly tight as it's a slim fit with a hint of stretch due to the waffles knit pattern, though it's 100% cotton. Shirt is sold out in this size last I checked.
      Beautiful indigo dyed waffle fabric that we think will age amazingly 
      Black cat's-eye buttons 
      Chain stitch run-off 
      Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads 
      All felled seam construction 
      Rinsed, so there should be no appreciable shrinkage 
      Model Sam wears a Medium, Giles wears X-Large in this shirt (rather than his normal Large)
      Measurements direct from IH: 
      Shoulders    17.2 
      Length 27.8 
      PtP    21.5

      Hey all,

      Welcome to Rivet & Hide. We are a London based premium raw denim store starting life online with plans afoot for a bricks and mortar home in the future.

      We offer free shipping worldwide and our UPS account will ensure a fast and reliable delivery around the world.

      I have been a SuFu member for years sharing thoughts, ideas and countless questions about denim and clothes that are made with heart and soul. This inspired me to set up and finally bring Rivet & Hide to life.

      Some of the brands will be familiar to you but part of the concept is to bring new and less well known denim producers into the sphere and we have worked hard to get that balance right.

      It has been a lot of fun meeting many of the people behind the brands and seeing their skills at work. We have clocked up many miles visiting them around the world making new friends along the way. A shorter trip through the Welsh valleys to beautiful Cardigan Bay to meet the Hiut Denim guys was just as rewarding. A special thanks for all the help and support from Giles & Paula at Ironheart UK and Anders Helseth of Steel Feather.

      We struck gold with a Union Special 43200g which was sourced from California. It’s in mint condition and dates back to 1950. Any hemming requirements can be consummately fulfilled.

      We have measured all our stock individually. We have not relied on suppliers or anyone else’s measurements. Our HOW WE MEASURE guide is based on BiG (thank you) with the addition of a hip measurement.

      We offer a 28 day returns policy with full refunds. Shipping included.

      The launch brands are:

      Railcar Fine Goods
      Steel Feather
      Flat Head
      Real Japan Blues
      Hiut denim co
      Nudie jeans
      Obbi Good Label.

      As we go into the Autumn we will be adding to our launch stock including some more great shirts from The Flat Head’s Winter collection, and introducing you to a new Japanese brand.

      We are planning a launch party hosted by our friends at Kaffeine, Great Titchfield Street, in Central London in the Autumn and will give you the heads up closer to the time. You will be more than welcome to join us.

      Feel free to ask any questions here or contact us at [email protected] or [email protected]
