The Evolution of Jeans: Pictures, Scones and Tea

Recommended Posts

Just for comparison. my summer rotation at the moment.
From up to down: Evisu Lot 2000 #1 Tiger Selvedge, SDA 102 yellow overdyed "mystery jeans", SDA 202
Lost the patch on the 202 'cause I threw them in a 90°C wash after I got them on ebay.

Some day I'll have to get my other spoils up, but this will do for now!

Are the buttons made on this jacket iron that has oxidized with washes over time? Does anybody know what metal that is? That's hardcore oxidation.

Thanks, those are all my partners jeans. It took me a while to get him out of Levi’s and into these but now he’s thrashing them all in high rotation. 
my jeans these days are black and black homemade and wrangler all my more interesting ones are just hanging out waiting for me to love them again .. apart from these circleAbrand ones which are one of my favourite things

Here’s a little series of Freewheelers Lot601XX - I’ll add them as separate posts so as not to Broark the thread 

Sorry I don’t have the hi-res versions anymore. Some unilateral decision making scuppered that. However, the colours are fairly representative as are the contrasts


1947 Lot 1 #1012001 - i.e. they are non-wash from 2010

This is a better pic that shows the difference between a newly arrived 1951 (one wash) v. a 1951 worn for about 6-8 weeks and machine washed at 40°C

Great posts mate , freewheelers offer some really nice denims but the original 47 denim is one of my all time favourites

... and a wee bonus comparison of a bootleggers ‘51 v a ‘non-wash’ ‘47. Pretty much the same denim as the FW Lot 1 ‘47 ... but with the added bonus of pissing off Levi

Nice to see all the denims compared, it can be hard to spot differences between them when seeing online photos of them new/unworn. 
Still thinking about getting a pair of the 46's. Just saw a lightly used pair of the 1939's on Yahoo in a size 30, not too often that you see those.

@Broark To be honest, and I’ve said this to others, the denim is pretty much the same across the range. It evolved from the bootleggers version when they went back to examining the yarns of original items. They tweak it now and then but the biggest difference is usually the dyeing process. So bottom line is you need to see them side by side.

The 1939’s are a rare as hen’s teeth, I’ve never seen any for sale (used or new) in a few years.
