Which Japanese (or equivalent) shirt makers fit between IH and TFH in terms of shoulders-to-p2p ratio? Most IH workshirts that fit me in the shoulders are too loose in the chest, and of course most TFH shirts have an extreme tapper. I'd like something in between...

What's the best way to de-wrinkle jeans after they have dried from a wash? Sometimes I get a lot of creases and wrinkles near the bottom of the legs. I usually just wear them and they come out over time, but is their a way to do this other than ironing or tumble drying?

Ehh it sounds like your line drying/hand washing your denim.  I get the same lines when I do it.  I just wear them and they go away after a few wears no biggie.

maybe steam them? i know that before i bought an iron and i had to get the wrinkles out of a dress shirt i would just put it up on a hanger in the bathroom and take a hot-ish shower, and all the steam would kinda ease the wrinkles out.

I've learned to just live with those creases. I don't have a dryer and wouldn't dry jeans anyways. If they're really stubborn - like a raw pair that has been folded for some time - ironing might help.

Do you generally not get charged sales tax when ordering (directly) from Japan?

Depends on the store. You shouldn't really. When I buy from Rakuten, I try to buy from sellers which state you will not pay the 8% if you are ordering from outside Japan or I will ask them.

Someone on here put up a really good post detailing the process of tax free shopping within Japan as a foreign visitor. Wished I saved that post.

Hardware related question.

I've got a pair of PBJ 24 z. It seems the hardware is the same as for regular 14 oz jeans. And it looks a bit weak for that denim thickness. The belt button has popped out. I've tried to replace it with a regular button found at a store nearby. It did not last a full day.

So I was wondering if there was a (online) store anyone could advise for stronger hardware.

Summer's coming (Yeah not quite, but spring has sprung in London) and its almost time to hang up the boots.

 

What does everybody wear when its too hot for boots but sneakers don't fit in with the head to toe LVC miner/farm hand steez?

 

Slip on sneakers may be an option, or desert boots?

Desert boots, PF Flyers/Pro Keds,  Birkenstock sandals and of course, more boots!

How about some pecos boots? Used Red Wing pecos are going for a song online these days; since the shaft is so wide and short they actually breathe well too.

Oxfords from either John Lofgren or Moto are an option, too. 

Honestly I mainly just wear sneakers in summer; Warehouse, Converse 70s, Vans, and now I have a pair of Lofgrens on the way.

Low top sneakers like Cons One Star, Vans Old Skool or low top Chucks. Especially the last two can fit with farmhand / miner pieces surprisingly well.

I use converse all stars and a pair of vans, but this year I am about the invest in a pair of repro USN deck shoes as well.

Surprisingly, Sperry makes a repro deck usn shoe, which is quite nice. I am going to buy it. I can't find the link anywhere on the internet, but Allblues co in Leeds sells them for 60 GBP. They look the same as these wakouva by anatomica:

Volvo those look great! After some searching Desert Boots are a must and the most classic of sneakers works for the Spring weather, but I think I may be destined for some of those now too, they are just too nice.

I will still continue to wear boots as previous summer. However, going for a change this coming summer, ordered a pair of loafers from Alden. Trying a different style with denim.

Forget Daisy Dukes, where to cop some Lemmys?

In all seriousness, I wear my TCB Seamens shorts in summer on the weekends.

IMO the shop you bought them from should sort it out with the hem job shop - seems weird that they aren't interested in making this right. It sure does not look like a job well done.

Bought for 9000euros in Dior Cannes boutique, selling it for 5500euros or 6000dollars. Free shipping.

      As the current DWC has drawn to a close there have been the inevitable questions from all over the cyberspace, which I occupy, as to whether there will be another contest for 2017 – 2019. Today I am pleased to make the announcement that there will be, and confirm a few details about what to expect.
       
      The theme of the latest DWC will be “back to basics”, meaning we’re going to scrap everything from the previous contests and make this one as accessible to everyone as it possibly can be, this means…
       
      Any brand or style of jeans can enter. There will be no weight categories, just one contest fits all. All entered jeans must have only 30 wears or less on day 1 of the contest. Speaking of day 1, the contest will begin on 01/11/17 and run for the standard 24 months to 01/11/19. The contest will be purely forum based, on both Superfuture and the Iron Heart forum only. Registration is open now, and will close 31/10/17. Registration fee for the contest will be a flat $20, payable via Paypal to denimworldchampionship@gmail.com . Upon registration you will be issued an entry number to validate your participation. The entry fee will be used to purchase prizes from our favourite brands and retailers for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Prizes will be announced as soon as possible after registration is complete. Once again we have something quite special planned with our friends at Iron Heart for contest jeans. Our judging panel is currently TBD.  
      So that is all for now, we’re looking forward to setting off on another denim journey with you all again soon.
       
      Regards,

      View Advert Blue Blue Japan Indigo Heavy Sweat Deck Jacket
      Selling an indigo dyed sweatshirt deck jacket from the Japanese indigo masters, Blue Blue Japan, in size 2 
      Retailed for over USD500, bought this a few season back. 
      Haven't worn it much, maybe twice for very short duration, pretty much look very pristine.
      Made from what I think is loopwheeled or at least, very high end sweatshirt fabric, dyed in pure indigo, giving the jacket a very deep, dark blue color and it's guaranteed to look more awesome as it crocks. The item is in a very nice USN deck jacket inspired cut, with two warmer pockets in the hip and one slash chest pocket. Even the pocket bags are dyed in indigo. The trims and the collars are all indigo dyed pure wool. There are two closures, buttons and YKK zip.
