SUPERDENIM SMALL QUESTIONS THREAD (Use instead of making new threads)

Recommended Posts

Conner's Sewing Factory has a very high rise but they are very expensive. Ooe Yofukuten 01 cut could possibly be something for you, too.

   I would love a pair of sugar canes, just not sure the thigh would work for me at the waist size I prefer.  I wish more folks made a true '55 cut(my personal favorite).

 

I have found the thighs on my SC Okinawa are quite large but they aren’t a ‘55 cut. 

I am real happy with the Lot 303 and they have close to a ‘55 cut IMO and Pants Shop Avenue might have your size. Also the Lot 304 (). Naoki is very quick about hand measurements.

Forget above post. Just saw you want a summer weight denim. The 303 & 304 are 16.25-oz.

I still think the Okinawa & Hawaii have a higher waist and loose thigh.

Bob Dong also makes a great, super heavyweight, 55.

I am not familiar with Bob Dongs denim but it appears to have a decent pricepoint. Is the quality good? They might make good pants for onsite inspections.

Is the ‘55 a button fly?

It's a Chinese brand, but the quality is very good. Yes, it's button fly. The model is 608H I believe. On mine (size 34), waist is 36, front rise 12, back rise 16.5, thigh 13, and knee 9.25.

Very helpful measurements. If they don't shrink then I would need a 34W because those hand measurements are more like a 36W in SC.

Those have at least been warm soaked + cold washed.

Forgot where I found this pic, but really diggin the fit.

Can anyone identify the jeans? Due to the leg twist I'm assuming Resolute 710s?

From the look of the denim it could be a pair of Resolute but from the wide leg it's rather a 711 than the 710.

From the coin pocket roping, it would suggest there is no selvedge there and a 60s (or later) repro.

I've seen that pic before, I'm sure they are a vintage pair of Levi's

Does one of you have an idea where I can get a bunch of cheap 501s in Germany?

Any of you guys used Marrkt

The service and shipping is decent but their pricing is all over the place!

I bought a RM Featherbed down vest , with leather yolk in superb condition for a 150 quid. Retails for 350 upwards..... 

They have 3sixteen and Cabourn shirts, pre owned listed for the price you pay new in store! :ph34r:

To sell for you they charge 40% of the selling price...... 

I listed a momo shirt there a year ago and it's still not sold. 

I check it quite often but like I said the pricing makes no sense at all.

I get their emails and they have some nice stuff listed, but like you said their prices make zero sense.
Lots of stuff that's essentially priced as new with visible wear on it. Don't know how it's profitable at all.

If you want to see absurd pricing (considering the current second hand market), have a look at this official IHUK sales thread...

https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12907.0

 

175 $ + shipping for a worn pair of SugarCane 1947? You can get a new pair for 199 $ shipped from Self Edge

Geeman,

I'm pretty sure it's the guys behind Superdenim and Real McCoy's London and I agree the pricing is bizarre. Love the idea that they're helping to resell clothing they originally sold for comission. Genius of sorts!?

^ yeah it's the same fella. What a business model. Also benefiting from operational cost efficiencies.

Tough to hold dye on 100% hemp.

Have you much experience with the fiber?

Check Canadian vendors. They harvest it up there.

I like Jungmaven tees. Their sizing's pretty weird: you might need a size or two down from usual. Price is high, but they do go on sale now and then.

Does anyone have info on slowboat deadstock? They make a cool pair of double knee utility pants. Can’t seem to find their site, only photos of their items. Thanks

Double knee?

I’m interested.

Denim?

Utility or Dungaree style?

Hey Pedro, looks like a heavy canvas but they make denim too. Here is a photo from Pinterest.

@lance

Great!

I like the double knee running up as high as it does. Sometimes that extra fabric is cut too low on the thigh and then the single fabric above it is a weak spot and wears and rips.

Only thing about these is they look like sort of a low rise.

If I can find their site I’ll let you know about the rise. I’m not into low rise either but I do like the style, canvas and details; especially the rivet details in the pockets and upper double knee.

If you’re looking for some double knee work pants try grease point, looks like they’re on back order until September though.
