Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

I think it’d look great worn open over a white tee. Can’t go wrong.

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?

Yes, they are

@bartlebyyphonics, yep—by the time I left the house it had warmed up enough that a second jacket wasn't needed, but it was still in that not-quite-warm middle-zone…long store short, spent most of the day with the collar popped and loved it. I think you're right that that's a much more natural way of wearing this style of jacket.

Sooo any more Ooe in the pipeline from S&S?
Wore my old LHT contest jeans recently and reminded me that I need some new daily Ooe's, hope the contest starts soon-ish. :ph34r:

Is there a contest? I need Ooe’s badly and there are none available or for sale in my size anywhere...

If my memory serves me correctly I think the decision was that there would be one once the TCB contest was over.

Funny I’m wanting Ooe’s because I need a break from my TCB contest jeans :tongue:

I'm not sure how feasible it would be but I think it would be awesome if we do another contest we could do a throwback to the custom days and offer some minor customization.
Standardize the denim, offer it in the 01/02/03 cuts and offer some customizable details like they used to offer (crotch rivets, continuous fly, etc.)
Or if that's too much just offer the same pair to everyone and randomize the pocket bags so we all get something different! Just throwing out some ideas here. :P

Loved the jeans from the last Ooe contest — one off #17 denim and the 02 fit, if I recall. My favorite pair of jeans, bar none.

Wonder how many guys are still active? Denim land seems so barren the past few years, I miss the good old days lol


Ooe is still by far and wide my favorite "brand"; You just don't get the same level of hand crafted love and warmth with the bigger brands. Enjoy my TCB's of course, but they're getting a bit tight and I can't wear any of my older Ooe's due to those same waist issues lol

If the cut and denim is right I would join the contest in a heartbeat! The 1702XX from the last contest is by far my favourite pair of all time :)

Every time you say shit like that you make the Shiotani brothers cry. Do you want to make the Shiotani brothers cry? Do you??? #WarehouseTraitor!!!

I’m down for OOE contest. What’s the details on the jeans?

Nothing is solidified yet as far as I know. 

I agree with you @aho, there’s a certain amount of love that goes into each pair that sets Ooe apart from other brands. Same goes for Roy if you ask me.

@Broark  and anyone else who got both the contest and saddle pants.

How similar or different are the fits on these? Thigh more roomy in the contest vs saddle?

Thinking of getting a size 35 for the saddle since it's supposed to stretch back out to tag size and I'm more of true size 34 these days. So unsure if I should bite the bullet and get the 35 or if a 36 is what I need then I missed out.

@ALB I’d be happy to measure both my pairs for you this evening for comparison. As far as I remember they fit pretty similarly, but I haven’t worn the Saddle Pants much yet mainly because they desperately need a hem.

@ALB Just lined up my two size 33 pairs, and they’re pretty much a perfect match from waist to inseam to hem.

The OA denim does shrink a bit more than the #17 denim after a couple washes, so I would expect the saddle pants to get a tiny bit slimmer in the long run. My pair has been worn a few times, but not seen a second wash yet.

Ah, yeah, sounds like I need a size 36 this time around then. Thanks, folks.

How many people would be needed for a contest? Seems to me like it would be possible to get a few together.
Would be down as well :)

i recently purchased a used pair of Ooe 1202xx made approximately 8 years ago. trying to learn more about this pair, i’ve been looking through these pages at all of the great Ooe photos, and it’s been great! so nice to see the evolution of Ryo and Hiro’s work, as well as people’s enthusiasm for it. so thanks to all who have contributed here, i really enjoyed going through all your posts and pictures. 

 

anyway, i wore a bunch of Ooe today, and i thought i would post a photo of it to share with all the other Ooe fanboys and girls, present and future.

 

wearing the OA01 from 2018, featuring the short-lived but gorgeous XX2 denim, as well as the moleskin cossack windbreaker.

Looks great! I'll be getting that jacket when S&S get a rerun, Neil told me they'd be getting some more in a few months.

@Broark that’s good - nice to get a second chance on something. it’s a pretty unique piece, but still easy to wear with the usual staples.
