I always hem mine at home with a modern machine and they usually come out a bit fucked, but I'm the only one who notices. 

Do you alter the sleeve length as well?

What does the community feel about having a designated hat thread? I think we should really have one. There are lots of great hats showing up in different WAYWT pics. Guys SHOULD be wearing quality hats, and many are, but they do not get the attention deserved.

I've primarily worn schwag caps to cover my dome and shield the sun, but I'm stepping up my hat game. I'm getting to know some of the better makers and what to look for in a quality lid. I'd like to learn more and see what fella's are wearing with denim and heritage/workwear inspired clothing.

I say go for it! I wish I could wear hats, but my head is small, and they always make me look like a chemo patient.

Lots of great brands doing hats though, from Stetson to Lofgren, H.W. Dog & Co, Wellema, the Fat Hatter, Hufvud, etc.

Anyone know where I can get The 501XX book stateside? Superdenim has it but I don’t want to pay nearly 30 bucks in shipping. Might be cheaper to contact Berberjin directly and see if they’ll ship me a copy from Japan.

You could buy it from The Shop Vancouver but seeing their price...well, you decide

I think that one would be more than buying from Superdenim. :wacko:
Think I might just have to go directly to the source this time.

Spotted a pair of these in a thrift store yesterday. They were awful hahaha. Definitely not up to my tastes. But.. out of curiousity, does anybody know what the deal with this world tour was? Was it similar to the ones that happen on here, or did they just put that patch on a bunch of jeans

I'm more bothered by the "Made in USA of Mexico fabric" tag.

They don't have a copywriter which understands basic English grammar?

It would cost them money, which their executives desperately need for their multi-million dollar salaries

Circa 2008 every 2nd person was walking around in a pair of true religion jeans. Now i rarely see them. They are as gross now as they where back then.

I'm not sure if this has been talked about recently or not, but I've noticed that it seems like the large majority of the mills, sew factories, etc in japan are an older workforce. Is there much interest in these things from the younger generations in Japan? Aside from ooe yofokuten and some others?

Where do you guys see the Japanese denim industry is 10-20 years with a shrinking(or maybe not?) workforce of this kind of skilled labor?

They raised this topic in Weaving Shibusa.

The main issue is that the rate of pay is not very high compared to other industries so it does not attract younger people.

There is a very real issue that in the future there will be a skill shortage of people who know how to keep these machines running.

They're too busy working to death for low pay (seriously).

      Only worn a couple times around the house. Thought I could make them fit, but alas, they're just too small for me I removed the tags already, but still have the receipt.
      If you have a 31 in this indigo pair or 32 in the OD version, I'd consider a trade. Otherwise, just a straight sell.
       
      They were purchased from Self Edge and chainstitched to 30" for $310 total shipped, so a bit of a discount here.
