White bartack is a bit of an odd choice but look nice otherwise

There is really a trend to more "natural/organic" looking jeans these days and less perfection. Or at least there are some more brands emerging to do this. BOT, Slash Overalls, Warehouse Duckdigger line, these above, CSF.

There had been some talk about Shetland Sweaters recently and @Duke Mantee and @Maynard Friedman brought up some suggestions. 

I've talked about it also a lot with @indigoeagle. He also recommended me to take advantage of the Endclothing VIP sale. A shaggy dog is probably too much for me but i find these Jamieson's already plenty fuzzy enough. 

The colour is 'slate' and I took a size 42. Jamieson's are done with a side seam so the fit is a bit more tapered than the seamless constructed sweaters.

Some reddish-brown tones in this overall grey colour

I've been eyeing those jamiesons, interested to hear your  thoughts after a wash and wear

I bought a Jamiesons sweatshirt back in 2010, if i remember rightly it was from Inventory when they had a web-shop.

They're nice, and wash well.

You shouldn’t have any fear about wash and wear of a proper Shetland jumper (like Jamieson’s) - in fact a good woolen should hardly need any washing at all ( @beautiful_FrEaK being victim to baby activity being an exception), and when you do just hand wash cool and dry flat.

That's the biggest "fear". And I agree, no need to wash too often. And they only recommend hand-washing if you have to. We will see.

I also ordered the same one on 'camel'. Same size, fitted a tad snugger and looked great in that regard. Didn't like the colour too much though and I think this 'slate' is easier to combine

2010 coincided with baby-days for me so my Jamieson's needed a wash or three, my most worn jumper (Dale of Norway) has only been washed once in the many, many years ive owned it, it was bought vintage but in mint condition so i don't think it had been washed prior to my ownership.. i washed it by hand in the bathtub and the amount of dye which came out was incredible, the bathwater was like pesto. Just make sure that you dry them flat between towels, hanging can result in some misshapeness if they're heavy with water.

The thing is with good wool that even when you do need to wash, it’ll take it no problem; all I meant by not washing much is that it really doesn’t need to be for normal wear - just air it.

I get quite dismayed by the amount of chat about ‘washing and wearing’ anything; it doesn’t make sense to me that we can spend large parts of our income on clothes we don’t know how to look after, which includes the fear to do anything and the fakery of making thing look ‘vintage’

As father of a two year old washing also has to figure into my purchase consideration. I don't wash my knitwear often but a 2 year old has a far greater damage radius than a new born!

Aye, I’ve a (near) 4 year old and she can get filthy, along with everything/one in the same room, just by drinking water

But really, good wool is very resilient and probably the most stain resistant of all natural fibres, otherwise if the fear of damage is so great just buy the machine wash stuff from a high street chain like M&S or those disposable aprons :laugh2:

Nice, I've been eyeing their products for a while and they seem to make really good stuff for the price.
I believe they use kaihara denim in their jeans and those have faded beautifully! Love that tone of blue.

Seems like something new out of Paris came out: Brut "The Denim"
Colour of the one-wash version reminds me strongly of Resolute 710s, seems like that's the recent hype in France with superstitch going the same route.
Looking solid nonetheless, but not sure what to think about the clotch patch.

Posting these here- the brand isn’t unknown, but he also doesn’t do much denim, so no point in starting a thread.

Sidnaw Company denim pants, these were released about a year ago as a limited run. It’s a 16.5 oz Cone Mills denim that was then waxed by Fairfield Textiles, cut and sewn by Rusty himself. All single needle, so lacking some features you’d expect like chain stitching or bartacks. Cool copper hardware all backed with leather. Cut is fuller and roomy.

I’ve only seen waxed denim in the context of fashion, so thought this would be an interesting pair. And behold, waxed denim does fade, albeit more slowly. It also seems to be darkening in places, as you normally see on waxed fabrics that are lighter in color. Wearing these for the indigo invitational. At ~170 days before a rewax using Martexin:

And after a rewax:
