Recommended Posts

^I've no doubt we'll see some dark horses come through at the end! And here we are at almost the one year mark. I'll have to get some full jeans pics up soon since I've only been doing macro/close ups!

woo! those are looking awesome. Who else is still fading away but never posting photos? Was going to send mine off for some minor repairs soon but I might have to reassess that and try to hold off till the end of the contest!

I'm not competing, but I am definitely falling behind...which I guess is inevitable when you own a denim store.

Just got back from New Orleans, wore the jeans there a bit so I threw them in for another wash/dry cycle when I got back.
I'll post some photos of the trip, but for now here's the jeans!

lol damn pudas......

Though I haven't been on sufu much lately, just know that I still wear the jeans every day and I'm committed till the end. Hell, I'll still be wearing this pair for years to come until they're in tatters! And damn, just realized we've gone over the one year mark? Will try to get an "update" in soon, but in case anyone was wondering where I've been, or what I've been obsessing over the past few months, or why I can no longer afford jeans (mortgage aside):

^It's mesmerizing to watch, like a needle floating ceaselessly through the air...And I'm already saving up for a Hi-Beat and 9F quartz movement! Doesn't help that pricing is at an all time low due to an impending dial design change. Alas, I'm a Seiko man for life, much as I am a denimhead...

Congrats on the award by the way! Will have to order some of that cider sometime

Thanks! 

Yeah you have had me looking at seiko's! Realized my father's old watch from when he was a pilot in the navy is a Seiko 6139 "pogue". Been sitting in his dresser for years now, wonder how hard it would be to get it fixed up.....

^Damn, nice find, the Pogue is a vintage grail for me! Seiko also runs in my family a few generations, hence my leanings towards the brand. I'd definitely try to find a competent watchmaker/repairer to get it up and running again and would like to see it on instagram some day when you do!

What's surprised me most about this fabric, is how much it holds on to it's dye even with frequent washing...

Continuing the watch talk from above...Took delivery of this fun little quartz Seiko today. What can I say? 50 year service interval, +/- 10 seconds per YEAR...Yup, "Just a Seiko"... ;D

Thank you! Going to be my daily driver! It's the SBGX117, though the white dial SBGX115 is more popular. Both rumored to be discontinued soon...

Sorry for keeping this strictly OT....

Aho, do you have any suggestion for a Seiko diver with a midnight blue dial? is there any?

      Time to officially kick off the contest now that the jeans have reached at least some of you!
      Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy. Should get some nice vertical falling. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project.
      If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 
      You can read more about the jeans on my blog indigoveins.com and also a piece on the guys behind the jeans.
      The contest length: The contest will run until January 31th. After that you will all have until February 28th to post the final pics.
      The prizes: The winner will win a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and the runner-up gets a €200 voucher from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      The jury: A jury of 5 will judge the contest winner: Shingo-san, Kuniyoshi-san, Jonas and Olof that runs Gbg Mfg and myself.

      Hey guys, I have some very exciting news to share. Soon I will release a collaboration I’ve done with my good friends at http://www.goteborgmanufaktur.se and Shingo-san of Denimbridge, sewn by the one man army Kuniyoshi-san of Double Volante in their new project Denim Base. 14 oz greatness made in Japan with a really nice vintage vibe to the fabric and a lovely olive herringbone fabric for the pocketbags. 
      Measurements:
      Size W26 W27 W28 W29 W30 W31 W32 W33 W34 W35 W36 W38 W40 Waist/inch 25 26 27 28 29 29.9 30.9 31.9 32.9 33.8 34.4 36.4 38.4 Front rise/inch 10.6 10.8 11 11.2 11.4 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.4 12.6 13 13.4 Back rise/inch 12.6 12.8 13 13.2 13.4 13.6 13.8 14 14.2 14.4 14.6 15 15.4 Thigh/inch 11.1 11.3 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.5 12.8 13 13.2 13.5 14 14.4 Knee/inch 7.5 7.6 7.8 8 8.1 8.3 8.4 8.6 8.7 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.2 Leg opening/inch 6.9 7 7.1 7.2 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.8 7.9 8 8 8 Inseam/inch 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 Shingo measures the front and back rise a little differently which gives different measurements from the BiG-method. Here you can see how he measured them if you scroll down: http://denimbridge.jp/overseas

      Since there's been talk about doing a Denimbridge contest for a few years now I was thinking now might be a good time with a special release. The jeans will be made in August so a contest could be possible to start late September.
      The prize: The winner will win two prizes: a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and also a prize from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      Pre-order: The pre-order is running until June 15th via https://goteborgmanufaktur.se/brands/goteborg-manufaktur/goteborg-manufaktur-x-indigo-veins-x-denimbase-gbg001-jeans-pr.html
      I'll have more info to share in the next couple of days and will post more details about the jeans. But for now, what do you guys say, shall we put up a contest?

      And here we are everyone! It's been an amazing ride with this pair of jeans, and I'm sure you've all enjoyed yours as well. But unfortunately as all good things must, we are now at the end of the contest.
      The Rules: The poll will remain open until October 25th, 2017, at which point Neil and Jeremy at Standard & Strange will choose the winning pair out of the top three highest voted. That said, the earlier you post your pair, the higher the chances of you getting more votes! 
      The Prize: Our lucky winner will receive a brand new pair of Ooe jeans! The details of the pair are not yet public, however, it will be an OA01 cut exclusive to S&S.

      I want to thank everyone again for their participation and camaraderie during this contest. I'm excited to see how they all turned out after this past year and a half of wear, in which we've all undoubtedly become connected with these jeans and experienced so much. Thank you so much to Ryo and Hiro for willing to do such contests and limited runs for jeans we couldn't get otherwise; Thank you to Standard & Strange for sponsoring the contest and supporting the denim community with overall awesomeness; and Thank you all for your participation and viewership of this thread, which helps the denim community make the world a little bit more of an interesting place!

      Note: Please keep this thread devoid of comments until after polling ends as we'll want to focus only on pictures from the entrants!
