Stronghold Denim

Yeah, those persimmon-dyed jeans looked great. Has anyone seen these in person? I'd be real interested to see them side-by-side with a pair of persimmon-dyed Sugarcanes. They look like they'd fade spectacularly.

ask, and ye shall receive.

Tried to capture the true color, I'd say the context pictures have probably fucked with the hue as they look a little more salmon-ey than brown.

gonna be switching off between these and the oni shoai this summer, aside from them being lighter they seem very similar in their unevenness, but shoai have big rogue warp knots the strongholds do not.

will post better pics when I get around to it.

first pair of denim with exposed back pocket rivets too... luckily I don't own any wooden chairs.

I got a 32 (33 waist). My true waist is 33-33.5 and I always end up sagging my jeans so I banked on them stretching to a 34. Probably could have been able to go down to a 31 for a slimmer fit but I'm planning on wearing these in lieu of khakis / chinos.

I'll post up a fit pic this weekend after the creases set a bit

I've always liked other colored denim, but not so much when it's an overdye. Yarn dyed with white/ecru weft like this is much better. Close up that stuff looks like upholstery fabric. Thumbs up.

You realize that, if you buy another pair of jeans, you have to send me your 7161s, right? Read the fine print on the tag :)

^ yeah, then YOU have to send ME half of your MF collection (not including the to-be-recently-acquired 7161s)

ROFLMAO! Bastards! Love you anyway!;)

Can't really justify that expenditure right now though... Besides... What size do you wear anyway Zissou? I do have a pair of MF dungarees (the ones that Relativity had such great pics of) in a size 32... But my MFSC are 30's :)

Dkatz - I'm pretty sure anything I sent you would be intercepted & might - one day - be found in a back alley bazaar! We'll talk when you're back :)

What the hell?? You also have a pair of 7163s?! I am a 32 in the 7161s, but kinda broke at the moment :\

Hah, riff - very good point! I see some pretty zany shit at markets here (example: I'm pretty sure the Boy Scouts of America just had a massive donate-clothing-to-poor-starving-Africans drive because I've seen a TON of young guys around town rocking Boy Scouts shirts, looking like they think they're fully The Shit).

And we'll talk when I'm back? I like the sounds of that. Random Uganda Shit for MF trade? Sounds like a plan!

Even though they are sanforized, decided to soak after a weeks wear. Glad I did, they got way rougher and a bit stiffer (no shrinkage).

If you want them fitted, I would suggest sizing down 2 from your "tts" size (true waist 33 = size 31)... but I wouldn't overdo it persimmon color + tight fit probably pushes you into homo territory.

Hurray for stripes and braces.

Yeah. Shame this place seems to be falling by the wayside. I feel like if their website site was better* or even up to date it could help them. They have a few new items that are not on it. Chore coat come to mind.

*oh I hate flash so much, it keeps me up nights. F you flash!

Completely agree. Maybe they don't care. How did you get a pair with a decent rise?

I don't really remember. I recall they had a pair of pre distressed that had like three buttons in the fly. Way to sexy for me. ha. These have the simple back pocket. Some of the pants have a stitching detail around the rivets on the back pockets. Might have something to do with it.

Another recent addition: Strongold Straight Leg River Wash. Again thanks to Mr. Almostnice. And again sorry for bad fitpics.

Does anybody know their exact weight? It feels heavier than my 15,7 oz Momotaro denim...

I miss Bill. This was one of the most exciting threads when he was still around (and affiliated with Stronghold). Definitely a cool brand doing cool shit.

I wasn't around when Bill was active, but reading back makes me miss him, too. Where is he anyway?
