let's make a dictionary with technical terms. there are many on Japanese sites and denim mill's sites with hundreds of terms. we should have our own here in English, in a separate thread but linked here. my English is not perfect so I think I shouldn't make it myself. I will post some links to existing dictionaries:

http://home1.inet.tele.dk/bcm/glossary.htm

http://denim-gallery.heavy.jp/denim-words/

http://jeanslabo.s33.xrea.com/

http://www.samurai-j.com/samurai/denim_dic.html

http://www.fabriclink.com/dictionary.html

http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=9640

I feel the Styleforum's Denim Terminology and Links topic is VERY incomplete, especially for people who already know a thing or two about denim. So I think we should make our own glossary.

Here is a list of terms:

http://wornjeans.atspace.us/glossary.html

I selected important words from those sites and made some descriptions myself. Please work on the descriptions, they are poorly written and incomplete. Add more words if you have any, and delete what you find unimportant. Should it be made in a new thread linked to this one? Maybe other people could also add to the descriptions?

You can get A.C.N.E. and Cheap Monday ($65!) at Seven New York along with a slew of other designer threads. I'm actually in search of a pair of Cheap Mondays for myself, and the owner of the store told me there will be more pairs up for sale by this weekend.

Taylor, could you give me an idea of what that thread said? i'm not sure which one you're talking about, i might have missed something in my initial search. if you manage to find it please post it up :)

there's actually a discussion of LHT, RHT, and their respective properties in the two Selvedge threads. let me go take a look...

ALERT! the 45rpm denim repair link is broken since www.45rpm.jp updated their site: http://www.45rpm.jp/denim/detail.jsp?id=011

anyone have a web archive?

that link is heavily quoted here, and it is a shame that it seems to have vanished

HELP!!!

bumping this request, I need to repair some denim. Anyone have an archive/cached page/updated link to this info?

I believe this website has been mentioned before but I didn't see it listed above: http://olah.com

Great site with loads of details on indigo, cotton, history of denim, and there's even a decent denim dictionary. I think it's great for newbies like me! :cool:
