^  That's funny Foxy2.  Is CSF vying for your attention?  ;-)

Certainly a healthier price point than CSF...

just trying to stay away from buying more jeans for a year or more.

Looks like OA is working on a new bag, quite like the look of it.

I fudged up and bought too small of a size. I’ve bought directly from ooe before and hit the +2. I assumed the ones from S&S were sized more correctly. 
 

that being said ... anybody have a size 36 they wanna trade for 34 waist? :/

What does the actual waist measure at?

Looks like OA released a pair of the 01’s in the time machine finish for a new Tokyo retailer. ¥48,200 though. :mellow:

Was there ever an explanation to what the time machine finish is ? Sounds cool but what exactly is it ?

They were very mysterious when I asked them during my visit. The parts I got to know was that it was intended to get specific colour of the weft. In other words, even closer to how vintage Levi's looks like.

Would love to hear if someone knows more about it!

I’d love to learn more about the process and I’d love a pair treated with it, but that price is a little high compared to the previous releases using the treatment.

I wonder if it’s like the oxidised 1000XX denim that Warehouse created in the past? This was used on my Warrens and I can’t say that I notice anything unique or particularly antique-looking in the ageing process.

^ Aye, just a slight difference of color on my Ooe that has the treatment and those that don't.

But what are we realistically expecting from it? :laugh:

Ssshhhhh..... don’t let everyone know it’s an expensive gimmick B)

Ooe Yofukuten OA02 x Standard and Strange 2017. Purchased in May 2017 and worn frequently for about 1.5 years. Washed in washing machine and hung dry every month or two. Enjoyed watching these evolve over time to reveal a ton of character. They're feeling a little snug these days so they don't get much wear :( DM me an offer if you want to take them off my hands!

Full album here with different exposures and lighting here: https://imgur.com/a/doaVPZL

The OA01XXc have been my go-to jeans recently.
I think I'll hold on washing these for a little while and see how the denim does initially with some less frequent washing.

This new lot of the OA denim definitely seems a bit hairier than previous batches.

Received my OA Boy's Pack the other day, it is a very nice backpack.
Good size for everyday use but also has the ability to expand and fit enough for a long weekend trip.
Lots of nice details on this, selvedge can be seen in various spots. The front pocket looks like two separate pockets but is actually one piece of canvas pleated.
I'm considering also getting the utility bag and/or mountain pack in addition, the green version of this same fabric looks nice.

Broark, how true to life are the colors in the pictures of your OA01s? They're incredible. After revisiting this thread, I feel a mighty need to return to a pair of 02s...

@Coolguyzack I’d say the colors are pretty accurate, I think I took those pictures when it was overcast out so nothing too drastic impacting the lighting. This run of the OA denim is very nice.
