Sugar Cane Denim

Recommended Posts

tough choice; the 2014 fabric is great from what i've seen, although whether it stands up well against warehouse is ... i guess a matter of preference :P

since i bumped to a new page (and am also wearing sugar canes right now) here is a texture pic of my 40601s featuring some ink i spilled on them while giving a tattoo this evening:

anyone know how much their normal work shirt/flannels shrink? I spilled some coffee on mine and needs a wash. I'll probably wash on cold an hang dry but was just curious if anyone had any experiencing? It's just that the fit is perfect and can't really risk losing to much in any category.

My MP-597 (early ‘90s) which I  bought lightly used.

Sorry about the picture dump but I thought it’d be interesting for some as there aren’t many of these out there.

Selvedge line is huge. Compared to a pair of LVC ‘47s.

I really shouldn’t tell ‘cause I’ve found lots of great deals there but what the heck, found them on Etsy. You can prob find some on yahoo auctions if you have some time.

Wild. Thanks for the tip! It's weird—I actually check there pretty regularly, but I guess my search skills just need some more honing.

Updates on my 509SE, these hit the one year mark in October and have been retired for the time being. Washed lots and are barely starting to look good

Any idea where the 509SE naming comes from? I get the "SE" is for Self Edge but I'm unaware of any SC fit utilizing the 509 number.

I have a pair as well and they are slowly starting to show their colors. Not as developed as yours though...

Does anyone have a good source for unsanforized 1947's? They are not stocked at my go-to retailer for Sugar Cane stuff (Self Edge). Thanks.

The 1947 has only ever been made from unsanforized denim, hasn't it…?

They're always made from stf denim rather than sanforized but perhaps he's getting confused with one-wash v raw, as I think Self Edge only have the former.

Ah, I guess that'd make sense. @428CJ: If you don't want to order from Rakuten, check History Preservation. Pretty sure they stock unwashed Canes.

Yes, I meant unshrunk, not unsanforized – just an imperfect use of terminology, not confusion. Thanks for the tip.

In other news, I just made a very exciting (and uncharacteristic) impulse purchase!

No item number listed, but as far as I can tell these are the SC40200, a pair that I've longed after for quite a while. Were any other similar pairs made with that patch / pocket art / etc.? Even if this is a synthetic-dyed version, I'll be plenty happy to have an old pair with arcs and a tab (and kakishibu pocket bags!) for ~$100, but I have to admit that I've gotten my hopes up a bit for the natural dyed version.

At Self Edge we actually have some pairs of unwashed 1947's at the stores, they're in random sizes scattered across our 5 stores.

If we don't have your size we can order it and have it pulled from the next production run they make, which happens every 2 months in Japan.  Just email us and we can sort you out real quick.

Awesome, thanks both for the confirmation! I'm very much looking forward to getting these in. I'm usually a 33 in this cut and these are a 32, so hopefully they'll have enough thigh room—if not, expect them to show up on eBay for the same price in a few weeks. Fingers crossed it won't come to that.

There are three things I would absolutely love to see from Sugar Cane:

1) Raw black 1953 Type II jacket, SHORT

2) Black Type III jeans, RAW

3) Raw 1947's, BLACK

I have the jacket and the Type III's. I love them. This black material is one of the best looking denims I've ever seen. But I would prefer the jacket short (like my blue version) and the Type III jeans raw (like the jacket), and the classic 501 cut done in that wonderful denim.

Did I miss these items being available somewhere?

Thanks.

Pants shop avenue usually has unwashed pairs, even in the rare or special runs. I don't remember seeing an unwashed black pair, though.

Update: these showed up yesterday morning! Pictures are forthcoming; in the meantime, a quick question: the model number is listed as "SC40200C". Does anyone know what the "C" stands for? I'm used to thinking of "N", "A", and "H" suffixes as signifying unwashed, once-washed, and hard-washed jeans, respectively, and I think I've seen "SHW" somewhere or other, but I've never seen this suffix before.
