Is the Awa-Ai SC41201 really made from natural indigo? The description of the fabric on Toyo's homepage is a bit unclear. Or is it a mix of natural indigo and synthetic indigo? Although price-wise it would fit into Sugar Cane's natural indigo category.

It seems to me it is a mix of natural and synthetic, just like the Edo Ai is a mix of the greenish stuff and well, regular indigo. That they go to pains to emphasize the natural dyeing of the pocket bags and the patch but not the denim itself reinforces this to me. What that mix is, who knows. So yea, it's made of natural indigo, but not exclusively so.

@AlientoyWorkmachine - not a mix, but natural indigo.

So it's not that some of the threads are dyed with natural and then woven with synthetic ones also? Because the official description really makes it sound like that. But I wouldn't be surprised if things got lost in translation. The official description even calls it the "Awa mixed" denim. 

Edit - Digging in a little more - it specifies about the blend "which is a blend of Awa Ai and indigo". 

I am taking "indigo" to mean synthetic, and Awa ai to mean natural indigo as per the previous desciption on the site here https://www.sugarcane.jp/news/709/

Help me see what I'm missing - I'm sure it's obvious, apologies.

That’s how they did the 401 and the 501, so it wouldn’t be too surprising

My answer here was in response to @beautiful_FrEaK 's "Is the Awa-Ai SC41201 really made from natural indigo?"

The jacket and jeans from this capsule we're carrying have a warp yarn which is made of 80% natural indigo (AWA-AI) and 20% synthetic.  There is a second part to this capsule (which we're not carrying) which is 100% natural indigo but it's not yarn dyed, both the jeans and jacket are garment dyed in natural indigo and they're priced accordingly (about $800 USD each).

Thanks for the clarification @kiya

It makes more sense that's a mix of natural and synthetic indigo. Same as the Edo Ai. I think the description of the Edo Ai was more clear on SC's homepage in that regard.

@kiya How would you relate the new run of TFH blank tees to the old THC series? Fabric, construction, fit, etc.?

Construction is similar but the new t-shirts are made of a long staple cotton and feel much softer and more "refined".

it's got more give too without feeling thin. The old fabric was great but def was unforgiving in terms of stretch. To me the new shirts are a good blend of the softness of a warehouse tshirt (but with a more even hand) with the classic flat head tshirt construction.

      Worn probably 10-12 times, barely any fades. For those who've been around these forums for a long time, they remember how awesome these jeans were when they first came out.
      Retail was $375 USD. Looking for $185 USD OBO.
      Best way to contact me is [email protected]
      Waist: 31.5"
      Inseam: 31.5"
      Thigh: 11"
      Hem: 7.5"





      One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean. 

      The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes.

      Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz. Hailing from Australia, the website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim.
      Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers.

      Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posting on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, discussing anything from travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing.

      This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks.

      IRON HEART 633s size 32 - imgur link photos taken by a window with natural light. 
       
      I've been wearing these for close to 2.5 months now. The waist has gotten a bit too big on me and I find that they fade too slowly. They're still more comfortable at 21oz. than most raw denim I've ever worn, though. 
       
      Whiskers are starting to break through, wallet fade is fairly clearly defined on the back left pocket, and while the comb wrinkles are fairly defined, there's almost no evo on the combs, knees, or thighs. These have so much life left in them that your wear will surely overshadow mine in the long run. 
       
      At 36" these are ready to be hemmed to your desires. I have not washed them since purchasing them. 
       
      Measurements (the [iron Heart](http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0) way):  
      Waist: 17.5" across  
      Front Rise: 10.5"  
      Rear Rise: 15.5"  
      Thigh: 12.5"
      Knee (13" down from crotch seam): 8.75"  
      Leg Opening/Hem: 7.6"  
      Inseam: 36"  
       
      Asking **$200 OBO**.
