what one chooses to do with their jacket is their choice. I personally wouldn't ruin an expensive denim jacket with a patch, but that's me. I think, too, that the type of patch factors into it as well.  lapel pins i'm ok with.

@chicote vokuhila it's definitely a power to be reckoned with now, after sufu's past mullet leader Maximo @oomskolop eloquent words.

super tired of the current raw denim trend that associate quality with super heavy super slubby hairy neppy high contrast fast fading and it doesn't help when brands are releasing this kind of jeans non stop

I agree with you. But I think here at Sufu you are at a good place for the other side of quality.

I like to have some sort of decoration on a denim jacket. Had this chained stitched patch of my dog made by Tina Vines. Will probably at other hunting or setter related things to it at some point.

I saw this chainstitched jacket on Instagram a while back, and, as long as you are a fan of X (the band), I don't think anyone is ever going to top this design.

I like crazy denim as much as the next guy but it does seem like a lot of brands like Oni, Tanuki, some PBJ etc. are kinda overdoing it. I like a sort of balance between edgy stuff and tradition - like how Strike Gold will make a fabric with really crazy character, but it'll have a pretty conventional color. Or how Flat Head's denim has a very bold dyeing process/fade, but has a pretty subtle texture to the denim itself. Having loads of slub, a pink weft, super loose woven 25 oz left hand twill denim just seems like a bit too much. 

I think it would be fun to enter the upcoming denim contest with a low-key, well-known pair like a 3Sixteen ST-100x, Nudie Grim Tim orange selvedge, or Sugar Cane 1947.

I got a weird one for y'all.

is it in bad taste to wear pinup girls on a shirt?  I've noticed this trend on a few Gitman shirts and Japanese brands.  

Exhibit A:

I think to pull off something like that the wearer would need a certain amount of panache and eccentricity. I could see Self Edge's model Josh pulling off something like that successfully. I myself could never.

I like it, but look out for all of those, uh... crazy people who tried to ruin the life of that pinup girl shirt-wearing guy who landed a satellite on an asteroid. :D

i can see how loads of slub, pink weft, and super loose woven 25 oz are a bit too much (or, for me, way too much)...but what's wrong with left hand twill?

I think he's just throwing that in as an example of trying to randomly cram every possible feature into a pair of jeans, hoping one or more of them will be enough to get someone to buy them.

Tip #4: To get simple spot stains out like splatter from pasta sauce, wet wipes work wonders.

I thought PRPS used pasta sauce as a technique to make their pre-distressed jeans so shitty looking.
