I was unable to find this brand in the forum so I'm asking here... (I hope this is the right spot since I'm guessing it's a newer brand)


Has anyone Heard of People for Peace? http://peopleforpeace.com/  My buddy who lives in Chicago just picked up a pair. The denim looks okay on the website but I don't know much about the details. In the about section, it has a slide saying it's made in USA. My buddy said he bought his pair for about $100. If anyone knows anything, some info would be great since my friend is asking me as if I know.

S.J.C. is a brand that specialises in high quality, well researched and fastidiously constructed menswear.  I am not into exact vintage reproductions, nor do I generalise with a weak attempt at a heritage item.  I select and merge the strongest features from a range of a particular vintage garment, say the American work shirt and put them all into one finished classic piece.  


The most important factor for my brand is that my garments are as masculine as they are beautiful.  Masculine beauty is what is missing in mens fashion and it is my number one intention is to inject this aesthetic back into menswear.  Masculinity is not to be confused with dressing as if one has fallen out of a 90’s workwear catalogue in a flannel shirt or growing a beard and riding a Union sewing machine around to validate one’s roots.  It is about ease with beauty.  Who walks around with a hammer wearing a $300 flannel shirt made in Japan?  A shirt you could not wear out in the evening on a date either.  It shows a poor imagination and a fear of beauty by both designer and buyer.  A fad.  Adding beauty to a garment uplifts a man’s spirit, it separates him from the drab and the unthinking.  I make items that you can not only work in but you can wear on a date anywhere. There are very few brands that can offer that.


This is not just my objective, but one I share with hundreds of different men I’ve spoken to over the past few months.  This dialogue helped me create better measurements, titles, fit, fabric choices and honed my ideas. Out of this research new friendships have also evolved.  However, the past four months have been an uphill battle.  I started out by contacting dozens of manufacturers who all demanded a minimum order of 250-500 items per run.  I couldn’t fulfill that.  Besides that wasn’t even my objective.  My goal was to test my ideas about men’s fashion.  So I scoured the world to find tailors who would take on single orders and cut each item by hand.  After dozens of emails and calls I have found a few good tailors scattered all over the planet in USA, Italy, India, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur, small family run tailors to make samples.  I’d hand pick the cloth, threads and buttons and have them flown in for assembly, but samples were poor, designs misconstrued or the fabric wouldn’t turn up at all.  My designs are incredibly detailed and they took many emails to communicate them.  Any mistakes meant we’d have to start again.  This meant they’d need more fabric, more shipping more problems.  There was no margin for fraud or theft - of which there have been a few.  But failing enabled me to learn.  Learning enabled me to get stronger to test my abilities and churn everything back into samples, which you will see soon here.  Selling to some influential people in the denim scene and visionary customers has vindicated my eye for detail and beliefs in masculine beauty.  Their confidence and feedback strengthened my resolve and has made this all worthwhile.  


Indeed there has been such a sizable appreciation of what I am doing that I have been invited to move my workwear operations to Japan with some very special help indeed (which I will share with you very soon).  The  S.J.C. workwear line will be in sizes to suit all shapes and sizes, particularly the western physique.  Having a 6’2†western body the fit issues with Japanese heritage wear is something I intend to address head on.  The range will of course be put together with awesome Japanese construction, the finest denim and the greatest attention to detail.  The other third of my forthcoming range will be made here in U.K. where I am based and will be made with the height of British craftsmanship, fabrics and finish.  So, that’s the past few months of my story, tough but worthwhile.  


If you didn’t know it or see it, my first offering was the 11oz Herringbone Denim Work Shirt made from Japanese denim.  It’s now available again and I am doing another twenty five pieces.  It is a truly fantastic price against the build and cost of any other handmade denim shirt on the market, and available now.








Today I am doubly excited to introduce to you a 16oz English corduroy winter Work Shirt.  It is fitted and luxurious and super strong.  These again will be strictly limited to twenty five shirts (also available now).








I'll be adding new stuff shortly.  S.J.C. is a Magento store, owned by ebay (owners of Paypal) so your payments are incredibly secure. This is something that I know is important to you.  Thanks for your support SF.  It’s great to be here.  I will share all I do with you as I go.

Hey Everyone,


I want to introduce everybody to Metazashi, a denim line my brother and I just started.  All of our jeans are made from Japanese denim and are manufactured by us in our small workshop.  The metazashi was a special tanto carried by Samurais on their left side, and serves as the inspiration for the tanto logo which is hand painted on the back pocket.




We have always loved contemporary and impressionist art and we see clothing as another form of artistic expression.  It only takes a brief look at our website to see how our passion for art has influenced our passion for denim.  All artwork on our website and social media is original; both of us paint frequently.  One day I wondered why not use a pair of jeans in lieu of canvas, which led to the medium I creatively named ‘art jeans’. 


We look forward to showing everyone our work.

      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]

      Selling my Golden Nugget from ByBeatle, size 46. It's been tried on but never worn, still has the tag attached.
      Purchased during the pre-order but its just not the fit for me 

      Specifics of the shirt are here: http://bybeatle.com/products/8oz-japanese-denim-work-shirt
      Shoulder - 19.8
      Chest - 23.5
      Length - 29.9
      Sleeve - 27

      Asking $250 USD, with free shipping via USPS to CONUS (Will ship INTL at buyers cost).

    • By Max Power
      Interest check: I'm not 100% sure wether I can make this fit work, so before I soak I wanted to check if anybody has interest in owning these.


      I wear 34 in my jeans and sized up in these. I think if you're normally wearing 34-35 these should be perfect on you.



      (I can double check, but they are pretty accurate).

      The jeans are unaltered and all tags still attached.

      Normally I wouldn't sell these, but the next months will be pretty expensive.

      PM me if you're interested and thanks for looking.
       Fixed price:  230€ plus paypal. Shipping included in Europe, +10€ rest of the world.
