Fujihara-san of Berberjin did a "collab" of sorts with a seemingly streetwear brand called Marbles. Denim and construction look fairly mainstream, but figured it might interest some as it's modeled after a 1940's cinchback

I know it’s not most sufu’ers preference (I count myself amongst that too) but the heavily washed jeans and jacket look really impressive. Super realistic washes.

For sure, not poorly done, only issue is having to pay a premium for the wash (in excess of $500 usd)

Here are some approximate measeurement for you @Broark on the ym factory closed front jumper:

pit-to-pit: 64 cm / 25,2 inches

shoulder: 59 cm / 23,2 inches

back length: 74 cm / 29,1 inches

under arm (pit-to-sleeve): 53 cm / 20,8 inches

arm (shoulder to sleeve): 59 cm / 23,2 inches

opening: 66 cm / 25,9 inches

bare in mind that atleast  for me the shoulders go about 5 cm over my actual shoulders so that gives a bit more length to the sleeves.

I gave the shirt a 40c degree wash first thing when I received it so I'm not expecting it to shrink a lot more from those measurement.

Also to note, the fit is not slim for me and I don't think it is intended to be and I like that there are lots of room in the body. Here's a side pic to show that:

Thanks @irual, the shoulder being larger definitely seems to make up for the short sleeve length. I've got some thinking to do!

@irual top shirt... re fit iirc the sleeves are intended to be a little short... I'm pretty sure I looked this up in the past and versions were all the same...  I really like it

Now I don't need another shirt for sitting at home 24x7 but...

I think you’re right @MJF9 I have a duck jumper from LVC and the sleeves are a bit short despite the generous shoulders. 

Great buy @irual

I've had both the denim and the duck versions of the Lvc popover and the fit is definately short arm/wide shoulders and voluminous fit.

Anyone remember a brand called “endevour” ? Had two chimps on the patch , Levi’s arcs and a red tab . They were posted here maybe 10 years ago , had a look through here a few times but the pics/links must be dead . Always regret not buying them at the time because they were ridiculously cheap

I ordered a pair through Hide San not long after they were first posted Flash but they’d just sold out in my size. They were the house brand of the Furugiya store and ridiculously cheap - about ¥6k or so but then tripled in price a year or so later. Long gone now I believe.

Some photos

I think they’re the same as 00’s pair.

I knew I had seen something like this before. Plus the 1997 trademark should’ve been a giveaway. Nice looking jeans.

I have a very nice heavy sweatshirt that I purchased years ago through the Inventory magazine website (sadly no longer around.)  Has anyone heard of this brand?

@wmb yup I am familiar with FilMelange, but haven't ordered anything from them personally: https://filmelange.com
They seem to have grown a bit over the years, they used to just offer loopwheeled knits of different varieties.
I think I held off previously since sizing looked a bit small, but good to keep on the radar for the future as their size range has expanded a bit.

yes -- the fleece is very heavy and slubby, though it does have panels on the side

thanks for the link -- they have some nice things.  The fit on my sweatshirt is a bit strange... It has a very large neck opening, which I don't love,  fairly long sleeves that work for me ( I need 36" sleeve shirts) that are tight for a sweatshirt. And my arms are pretty skinny

Any experience with the Jelado "Standard Collection"? Looks like some interesting options, fairly repro-oriented (besides maybe in cut)

There's a video of the clutch magazine guy (sorry dunno his name) talking about the denim with the head of the brand on YT.

He had very good things to say about it.

yeah, jelado still seems to be relatively unknown in the west, but is well liked in japanese and HK circles.

I’d imagine the jeans would be the same standard as their sister brand John Gluckow, which I’ve owned - so pretty good (Sugar Cane level). Generally I’ve found Jelado to make some decent stuff

I haven't owned any yet (didn't have my size in what I wanted ) but I handled some Jelado in Bangkok and their Shinjuku store.  Was nice stuff, certainly up there with most of the familiar brands

Jelado makes good clothing but their sizing is terribly slim outside of denim IMO.  Own a few tshirts and shirts myself, wearing a XL when I normally wear L in other JP brands.

Jelado’s customer service is impeccable though.

Number 5/14 NWT in size 33" is for sale here just missing the T, from what i can gather, they come up a little snug.

Those are gorgeous

Funny mix of details, though, with the hidden rivets & the the single-chainstitched waistband with the V-stitch and everything…

edit: Looking again, I guess pretty much everything about the jeans is Levi's besides the logo & the hardware, unless there's a whole period of '30s Wranglers I've never caught wind of?
