Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

Recommended Posts

There are some new pictures up on their Instagram profile where the dye looks less patchy and more even. It could be due to the lighting, but I wonder whether you'd be able to request one that's the least distressed looking out of the lot. Dye distribution along the lines of the jackets you see on Leather & Things Motor's Instagram would be preferable.

I agree, in some of the photos the leather looks more more regular and even in regards to color. Just wish I knew a price right now so I could make my leather jacket decision.

Ooe put their new moleskin windbreaker up for sale and the only size 44 they made they are taking to Inspiration and if it sells there I won’t be able to buy one. :unsure: So if any of y’all are going don’t buy it, or proxy it for me. :biggrin:

^ Shoot S&S an email. I've been bugging them about carrying it, and it seems like they'll be more likely to if some more interest is shown. Their version would likely have a slightly lengthened body and sleeves, which I think would make it a lot more plausible for me.

If the length on the 44 was about an inch longer that would be ideal. :ph34r:

The jackets do nothing for me. When is the next SS x OOE collab though?

^^ Ah, that's a bummer. I could go either way on body length—would just determine what sorta pants rises I wore it with—but I think an extra inch or so in the sleeves will be ideal

saw pictures of the duck pants on their Instagram. Don't think that's the Denimbro collab tho?

Probably a pair they’re selling at Inspiration, then everything that’s left over will be for sale from them directly.

The Cossack jackets are definitely going to be mine, I messaged S&S and they're going to be carrying them both AFAIK.

In all their pics on IG, that collar really emphasizes the length of the neck, unless it is worn up.

I'm more intrigued by the brown duck waist overalls...

Hell yeah.

Was worried S&S might not stock the moleskin one, and it wasn't something I wanted to have to pick up without trying on. Looks like it'll be a go for me, provided the fit works well.

@Broark, I thought you weren't so interested in the possibility of a longer body? Change of heart? : )

@julian-wolf I actually don't think the pattern is changing, Neil provided me with measurements on the leather jacket and the length is a little more western friendly than I originally anticipated.
Just trying to make that decision if I really need it. :ph34r:

Here's some content for you guys

01XXS about to hit the one month mark. I've been machine washing weekly, warm water, dryer... yada yada yada...

Not much evo yet but I'm really enjoying this pair so far. I'm pretty much giving up on my Golden Gates for the time being, I'll get some photos of those up sometime soon if anyone is interested

The Golden Gate Denim is a slow fader - the warp yarns are twisted less resulting in deeper dye penetration. It takes a bit to start fading but it will get there. The OAXX denim fades much quicker.

We have more moleskin Cossack jackets on the way as well - should be here sometime next week.

My Golden Gate's feel like they've faded at a much faster rate than my other Ooe jeans. The heavier weight + deep dye penetration makes the fades appear a little too constrasty for me, feel like I have to wash more to counter it. That's just me though, curious to see how other people feel about the Golden Gate denim that have actually worn them daily for longer than a month (if there are any)

So has anyone grabbed the moleskin cossack jacket yet? I was just in S&S and found that they'd already arrived and then sold out (sorta sad about that, 'cause I'd thought I was set up to receive a notification when they were on their way, but so it goes). Seems like there won't be a restock for at least a few months? Who can I live vicariously through in the meantime?

Did you buy through S&S? I’m kinda thinking about one if they’re available. Also @scooby are those the John Lofgren combat boots?

Yep, stopped by this afternoon to grab one of those tote bags for groceries and saw it on the rack, a pleasant surprise

Seemed like they only had a few in 38 and this one in 42, maybe leftover stock from What's-it-Called down in Southern California last month? Anyway, worth calling to see if they do have any others, just in case—word is they're making more now, but I guess it'll probably be some months before those're ready

Stopped for some "fit pics" over breakfast

Definitely on the slim and short side, but a size up wouldn't've been right in the neck / shoulders / arms. Works great with a shirt or two underneath and okay with a sweater, but not much more. Luckily for me, that fits 90% of how I'd like to wear it anyway.

Looks great with the SC Wrangler repros, hope I can pull the jacket off once S&S get more (if that’s the plan).

Thanks. So far my only two complaints are that I'd like bigger / higher pockets and that the initial criticisms of it making folks' necks look long were 100% spot on. Both are heavily outweighed for me by the fabric + construction + overall styling, but maybe worth keeping in mind for others interested. I know I should've expected this from a moleskin, but I'm still continually surprised by how soft the fabric is, especially on the outer face—it's really luxurious.

The whole look is a lot more formal-feeling than my other jackets, so I think that's going to take the most getting used to.

I did get the impression that Ooe were going to be making more, and I think you'll be able to pull it off no problem.

looking tasty...

def. more formal... (but layering seems very correct for it)

and it looks like it has room to mould and drape more (whence the quality of fabric and construction should shine)

when I am looking at such cossack shawl-neck types it is mostly for collar popping

and you have one more button you could do up?
