What is the typical one-washed process used by Jpz makers? Do they go above 40C / 104F?

Do people really recommend sizing one down from your true waist size for samurai S0510XX and S510XX? 

Scratch that. I wear a 30" and I've been told by a samurai rep that I want a size 30 in the S0510XX. Does that check out? Said it would shrink in the waist to 29" and then stretch out to >=30".

Hello! I’m looking to buy a Sugar Cane 1953 jacket. Has anyone ordered to USA from Pants Shop Avenue?

Does anyone have experience with the sizing (and quality) of the Orslow workshirts? I'm looking at a polka dot one which looks very nice but looking around the internet the size charts seem to be all over the place. I also got some measurements from Meadow where I'll buy it from but they only made the confusion worse.

This is the shirt I'm looking at: https://www.meadowweb.com/art/orslow-work-shirt-polka-dot.php

Naoki from PSA is a trustworthy person. I buy stuff from him for over 10 years now.

He currently ships to the US with DHL because EMS is still unreliable.

@Ar_thor

I have a short sleeve button down shirt and a coach's jacket from orslow, both in size 4 that are great fit for me.  18.5 or 19" shoulder and 22.5 or 23" chest on the shirt.  I'm 6'2 with a 41.5" chest

I'm typically an XL in japanese sizing

Do you get stung by customs when DHL is used?...

Question regarding indigo-dyed tee-shirts: what is the advantage of a yarn dyed fabric, or what is the difference between it and a garment dyed piece over time?

If you were buying a pair of indigo warp/weft jeans, would you rather have them dyed indigo after they were made or before, when they were still simply yarns of cotton? They’ll end up blue either way but I think you’d prefer the second method. This is perhaps less important or noticeable on a t-shirt but the same principles apply.

Anybody used Superstitch in Paris before for a mail in?  He received my item on 31st May and since then has not responded to any messages.  All I want from him is an estimated finishing time but at the minute looks like I may be lucky getting my jeans back!!

I have both indigo and non-indigo garment dyed t-shirts. They have a more "broken-in" look and the fabric faded more quickly over time than my yarn dyed garments. They looked great when they were new, but they've since developed a bit of a dingy, washed-out look, rather than "worn-in". I'm not a huge fan.

@cmo Yes without any problem. He's a little overwhelmed with demands atm. Don't worry you'll get your jeans back. I would trust him with my most precious garments.

Thanks Collin. I don’t doubt I’ll get them back I am just impatient and his communication isn’t great. I get he is busy but a one line message to reassure me isn’t too difficult. I’ll just have to wait out!!

For what it's worth he's alone managing a few different operations : Europe brand representative of Resolute and Fortela, Denim repair and alteration product, owner of a denim shop and a denim brand ! 

 

If it's your first time trying him out you won't be disappointed. His denim alterations are definitely the best in Europe and USA (except if you can convince Roy to alter your pair). Only a few makers in Japan would be at it's level.

Should black denim shrink less then regular indigo because of its process and chemicals used?

I’ve admired these from afar. Plenty of styles, although can’t immediately see a bucket with strap

Online store is here

Can't recommend TCB and TRMC bucket hat enough. I have both and they are excellent.

Not a brand often seen here, if ever... But here is my recent denim project going quite well. Visvim Social Sculpture denim 01.2R. Duration: 6 months. 3 machine washes with Warehouse denim detergent. Love the indigo dyed elk leather patch subtle aging.

Inspired by Collins post I'd lie to hear people's experienceswith Visvim? Some nice looking pieces but the prices are staggering, a 3 pack of plain ts is 500 quid! There ain't many plain white ts for 160 quid a pop!

I've been to two stores in Tokyo with my son and both were very impressive and packed, what's the thoughts on them?
