I'm not sure what your collection consists of now dude but if I were you I wouldn't sell them all ..... far too easy to put a few lbs back on as you get older 

No, I'm not going to sell them all. That's a good point. At the very least, I will save my 37s because they have been worn so much and I love how they look right now. They will be great to throw on for a lazy day when I just want something extremely comfortable. I will also be keeping the 46 first half pair that I have because I like them the most and they are the closest to fitting right now.

They are all size 36 though, right?! ;)

Yes they are all size 36. I already sold the size 38 47s I had.

Think positive dude, you’ve lost weight and fortunately none of it is from your feet so you get to keep that fine boot collection! :biggrin:

Yeah it's definitely a good thing overall. I've even been able to keep losing weight during quarantine which I am happy about.

How much do you want for your leather jackets?

Haha you're unfortunately on the money there. My size 42 Mulhollands are starting to get a little too big on me...

Good point from Flash there Dude - plus personal tastes change... you might be grateful of an old, nicely worn, more spacious CSF friend in future instead of a few extra quid now.

Interested to hear why the TCB are not working out for you personally? I heard waist is a little less but will expand with wear; thighs are coming in less so understand that might be a problem for some.

You are certainly right about that. That's why I'm definitely keeping two pairs, but I still think I'm going to offload some other pieces. The thighs are definitely a big problem with the TCBs. It's not just the waist.

How good.... :smile: That’s the oldish tone of dark blue with the wear I would love on any old Levi’s if I ever had been in a position to get some.

@dudewuttheheckI think it was around 2-3 months.

I can tell you actually work in them. I've worn mine for 3 years and the knees on mine are still pretty dark blue :D

Are the West Ride collabs made by Konaka-San himself, or by someone else in the workshop? Anyone have experience with them?

The westride stuff is a bit funny with there models , the dates instead of being 46 , 47 ect are all after Harley model years 1948 and so on . Everything pre 1950 is definitely Yoshiaki but there may be a 52 or 53 model that he also makes ( I'm not sure on this last one )

Good info, thanks @Flash

Don’t know about a ‘52 or ‘53, but yeah, I’m seeing references to a ‘45, ‘48, and ‘55

45 and 48 are definitely Yoshiaki , I'm really not sure of the rest . The new Westride 37 looks great , I'd like to get one but cant afford anything unnecessary at the moment

Yeah, I’ve always been really interested in their Wranglers, but the ultra-low rises have kept me from ever trying a pair; seems like their Levi’s are cut to be much more accommodating

Also seems like the owner must have a pretty good personal collection, with all the CSF collabs supposedly being based off his jeans and not Konaka-San’s?

Ive only ever been tempted by one Wrangler repro... whicg coincidentally has just had a price reduction in the 'Autumn sale'

these Junky's

The waist is too big for me tho...and the rise is too small but damn 15k, they were 24 a few weeks ago.

Decided to sell all my current CSF gear as it is all much too large for me now and I am still dropping more weight right now even while stuck inside mostly and without the gym. I'm betting on myself to not need anything in this size. The jacket was already sold and shipped, so it's just jeans left right now. I am of course still keeping the 37s for sentimental reasons.
