Soundbomber..

Wow, i've never seen those before..

In all honesty, the "half arcuate" isn't exactly a groundbreaking new design.

We just removed exactly half of the original Levi's arcuate on both pockets.

where did you find this? I need it!

HJJ,

What's up with you liking that subtly racist themed clothes? I saw on your blog that vest with the confederate flag on it. Is that shit cool in Europe?

I totally agree.

i can't see how somebody can get away with wearing that stuff, it's beyond offensive..

I don't know if it's cool, it's just funny. Might have a hard time going out in that vest though.

It's not in any way racist though.

I would like to see them wear that stuff in Oakland... Revenge of Huey P. Newton.

It's a bit different here because we haven't had the same thing happen in Sweden/Europe. I would never wear that stuff in the US and not everywhere in Sweden.

I saw some stureplan hipster with the confederate flag vest... I guess thats the context stuff like that end up in here... That sweater might be hard to wear in some areas though..

Yeah that groovers sweatshirt will get you fucked up real quick. No warnings at all just instant beatdown. You might as well just put on the white hood and burn a cross cuz its going to be viewed as the same thing.

No worse than wearing the old Vivienne Westwood 'DESTROY' print tee from 30 years back...

there is a big difference. i don't think HJJ is wearing that for "shock value" which is what all the destroy stuff was about....

I've been thinking about buying them several times, just because of the price. But I don't think I'd really wear them. They look nice though.

Right? The power washed ones look kinda bad, but I think that's because they're power washed. I'm hoping the raw ones would fade better. But for 85 bucks, you can't really lose...

Does anyone know anything about the brand??

I love how you're always hunting for the bargains! Its refreshing to see some jeans on this board that aren't $300+. ;)

Who doesn't love a good bargain? Though I did just end up springing for another pair of Sam's (no more curse), but I might pick these up too...

won't be sued because they aren't being sold in the US.

Vintage Nylon & Co?

Interesting take on the arcuates, wonder if they could be sued over that.

On a different note, I want to see some pics of those Groovers already!

Someone, be so kind to direct me to them.

Nice looking denim- i know you cant tell much really from photos but it does look nice.

Although I doubt these jeans will be the next big thing, people only really go nuts for stuff that has its own thread and is seen in WYWT.

An example of this would be oni shoais, people really bought into them, however since then eternal and full count have released just as gorgeous natural indigo models and no one on this forum has got them... ( infact im not sure if anyone but me has posted about them ) ...the full count ones are for the 15 anniversary and are beautiful, remind me of a bluer sc40500. The eternal ones are wacky, same fabric as the 868/872 with the two warp thicknesses, but one is dyed lightly and one is dyed heavily in natural dye to give them a crazy slubby-striated look. Both jeans were cheaper than the shoais, this is what baffles me...

SHIT- I started posting to give a link to another brand, make 3 48000yen jeans from a store that lists all the jeans on one page, but I cant find the page now and im kicking myself. Riyuki Tyukiyu or something like that.... dammit.

Gitinthere- found em

TSURUGIYA JEANS ( of which pleasures greatly )

actually this brand looks really cool.

http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tasukijeans.com%2Fbrand7.html&langpair=ja%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF8

from what google translate tells me, they make jeans with a 17oz denim, and use 0 size thread so the stitching looks nice and thick ( well it is ). Also they make a black denim that is rope dyed ( i think.. ) and is designed to fade.

However warp is firmly rope staining for the charity,

Steady sharp fall fashion is fun

Features.

If they make this in the TA70002 cut then i bet someone may be tempted to take the plunge ( but then no one has posted the black somets slims yet...). They also say the indigo denim is supposed to fall vertically. It does appear like structure denim does.

nice find chan..
