A (small) bag-full of Bronson bangers...

£90 for 3 t-shirts, 1 henley, 1 watch cap... 

I really like the t shirts - reasonably heavy, wash well thus far

18 days shipping, no customs charges

What's not to love?

Yeah they're good and they wash well though I much prefer the bob dong plain tees. They're cut much shorter so work well tucked or untucked, the collar has a triple stitch so it won't never get loose. And they stand the test of time incredibly well.

how is the sizing of bronson vs bob dong tees? do you order the latter directly from taobao? my chinese isn't so great...

edit: bob dong might be out since i'm 186cm.

^^ Will have to give Bob Dong a go (please read this is the utilitarian way intended)... tuckable length is important (in concurrence with @CSL's post from the other day)

I wear an XL on both and my bare chest circumference is around 104 cm. IIRC the overall length of a Bronson is 72 cm while the bob dong is cut much shorter at around 67 cm. Plenty tuckable still to me but yeah I guess it's not suitable to very tall peeps. I have some bob dong tees that I bought in 2015 and still are absolutely perfect and I wear the white ones all the time. They outlived my [few] nice Japanese tees (Tezomeya, Pherrows) by a length. I have just bought a couple more a couple days ago, included the [supposedly] fancy tubular ecru organic cotton one, which costs about twice the standard tee cost. I'll report once it's here.

Anyone knows anything about Red Tornado or Rock Can Roll? I've seen them on Aliexpress and seem to have some really nice fades, was curious if anyone here have tried any cut from them?

received my first bronson order.

heavy cotton pocket t-shirt: fits great, constructed well, and has a nice weight. absolutely zero complaints for something that is only marginally more expensive than uniqlo (tees and socks are pretty much the only two things i refuse to drop $$$ on). i was only able to get one of these in 'ginger' as every other colour was sold out, but i would definitely order more.

wabash worker shirt: again, very good for the price and overall better than i expected. slightly too big on me and a 42/XL would probably fit better, so i'll likely wear this unbuttoned. one minor gripe is the arms seem to be cut particularly wide around the bicep.

spire watch cap: unfortunately i have eczema and can't wear wool on my head, so finding a decent watch cap in an alternative material is often a challenge. this is super thick and seems to be of decent quality, however, the design itself is sadly more akin to an exaggerated 90s carhartt beanie as opposed to a 'traditional' cropped watch cap. my head is absolutely massive and the length of this (pause) is actually comical.

for reference, i'm 186cm/80kg and typically wear a M in most western brands and L in japanese labels. based on advice from bronson and here, i ordered both shirts in 44/XXL (!!!). sizing up was absolutely essential, despite my initial reluctance.

edit: shipping from china to australia took about three weeks.

just received a bob dong ultra-heavy flannel as i really cannot justify paying (imo) obscene amounts for the IH equivalent. i read BD tends to fit smaller than bronson if anything, but unfortunately this fits much bigger than the two bronson shirts i own in the same size. absolutely love the colour (although i realise a lot on here will find it garish), so i'm tempted to re-order and try a size down...

I bought one of these Maden waxed jackets locally, for a lot more money, and really liked it. When I saw it on aliexpress for $35ish, I had to order another one to see if it was the same thing. I also ordered their longer waxed coat with flap pockets. The 2 arrived recently and are the same as my original. These are not a heavier jacket material. They are more of a shirt material with waxing and cut in jacket styles. I think they are great and well worth the aliexpress price.

As can be expected with mailed waxed jackets, they arrived with some heavy duty fold creases. I little time with my heat gun and the creases all but disappear. The pocket flap version is a bit longer (I think). I'll have to go measure.

I ordered one size up for the fit I wanted. Snug, but able to wear over a t-shirt and long sleeve shirt.

If anyone is interested, Gustin is offering a two pack of 5 oz indigo dyed t-shirts for $46. That’s a price that can’t be beat and their quality is always good. I just bought 2, take a look.

^ I used to love their organic, pigment-dyed tees—really wish they’d go back to making those

The dyes were fast; the fabric was v. lightweight & soft but lasted well and never pilled; all the constructional stitching was with cotton thread so they aged naturally; the fits were great…I think I’ve gone through about a dozen of them in different colors, with maybe two or three still stashed away for when I run low

All the other jersey knits I’ve tried from them have been terrible, so I’m kinda interested to hear how this round of indigo tees turns out

Wasn't sure where to put this but wanted to give these guys a shout out. Really nice sweats, good weight and made in the UK. Definitely not a vintage boxy fit, a more modern flattering fit. I got about 5 pieces from them now and will definitely be considering them against the usual JP brand sweats in the future.  The fit is obviously western build friendly.

Don't be put off by the surly young northener (aka a teenage 00 :biggrin: ) model

@Double 0 Soul They’re not mine. Just found them on a consignment site here in Sweden. Highly doubt that they’re anything but shoddy made fakes but thought they where fun.

Here are some more pics:

Some time ago I got this black moleskin jacket from Indigofera. So damn soft. Should be a great spring jacket.

I'm very tempted to get some Jelado 301 Age of Longing but noticed the back pockets are asymmetrical.

Quick Google suggests this is deliberate but I can't find the reasoning behind it, and 50s Levis didn't have this.

Anyone know why they have been made like this?
