Who makes a nice, dressy, denim shirt?

^I think dressy & denim don't really jive but the ihsh-33 with tonal stitching comes as close as any and closer than most... Or perhaps the IHSH-218 non-fade superblack.

I think Japan Blue has made an Oxford shirt in denim earlier this year.

Any suggestions for a replacement part?

Anyone tried out Ues socks? They restocked the Large size for the first time in a while and they're really tempting me…but they recommend them as fitting sizes 25–27, which doesn't seem very large at all

@julian-wolf I’ve got a pair of their indigo toe socks and while I can’t vouch for the longevity of them (bought them when I was feeling touristy in Daikanyama and haven’t used them all that much) they seem really well made. Comparable to Merz b Schwanen or similar. Size 25-27 should be eu40-44 or 8-10,5US.

Great, thanks for the info. I'm now used to thinking of EU44 / US10.5 (my size) as around 28cm, so I wasn't sure whether to proceed, but that seems promising.

Hot wash and hot dryer cycle for max shrinkage. If you really don’t want to put the jacket in the dryer the hot wash will get most of the shrinkage out.

Apologies, I forgot to reply, I do have a spare cinch in a bronze colour, the type where the part which should have prongs is useless but the part you need (to replace your broken) one is OK. I’ll dig it out again and take a photo. Then if you’re interested, let me know your address and I’ll post it to you.

Coming out of lurk mode to ask a small, non-denim question:

Anyone have a recommendation for replacement laces for the 70s Converse?  The laces always break before I'm ready to retire the show and I can't locate anything that feels/look like the original lace.

The Chuck Taylors?

What color?

I would want something light.  I mostly wear the standard black 70s though I do have a pair of blue flannel and a custom maroon suede.

No personal experience but I’m assuming they are the same as the originals.

I think those are polyester though. The 70’s laces are 100% cotton.

Yes and the originals had a slighly  larger diameter aglet, most likely because the original laces were a little heftier cotton fabric.

Has a yone got feedback on the repairs service at Soldier Blue London?

I have an old pair of Oni that are getting a bit thin in the crotch so considering some preventative work and don't want to have to ship to Indigo Proof in the US or send to far afield etc for a pair that doesn't get a whole lot of wear.
