Dang man! Not tying to encourage bad spending, but if I remember right you were pining for a pair even before Ande closed up shop!

True, but I won’t spend money I don’t have.

Good for you. Many people do, via loans, overdraft, credit cards, etc...

I’ll post some update photos of my double black Buffalos once the light improves. They’re fading pretty quickly for the relatively infrequent wear they get. Once they go beyond a certain stage though I’ll probably say “[email protected]*k it!” and wear them full time. They’ve got more leg time recently since I rediscovered my (black) Paraboots, as I’m enjoying the stealth look!

Please note - this is not my middle-aged attempt at Goth Ninja...

Been wearing these a lot the past six months, have a small hole on the front pocket but other than that are holding up great. Will get less love while the temperature is up but I will get back to them in the fall.

They look great @pudaspriest, it’s also good to see the non-standard features like the half-lined shovel pockets, felled inseams and crotch rivet. What weight is that denim?

13 oz denim in the Caribou cut per my original invoice. Added the fly rivet, shovel heads(which are half lined) and felled inseams. Amazing pair of jeans, wish he was still making them!

Hoy folks,

Just checking in with a note that I'm selling a much loved pair of 2012 AW Mustangs - 29x34.

Wore them well for about 12 months then went travelling and haven't worn them since.

Still a bit of life left in them, I reckon - see the Gumtree ad for details.

I'll put this in here for now although it may deserve a thread of its own. The spirit of Ande lives on via Last & Loom. Hemi, a fellow Kiwi (to Ande, not me) acquired the patterns and used them as the basis for his new jeans, made in Japan - the 60T loose taper, with hidden rivets, chainstitched hem, all the usual bells and whistles, etc. They definitely look worth checking out.

Good to hear that @Maynard Friedman

Ande collaborated with Hemi before on some jeans - I just checked back and it was in 2012.  They made “21 pairs out of a beautiful 14.1oz Natural Indigo denim in the Mustang and Caribou models”.  I got a pair of Caribou’s and still have them for posterity sake.  Hemi told me it was a real honour as Ande had never worked with anyone before and it took him 2 years to persuade him.

They must have gotten on quite well.

I have 3 pair Last & Loom boot socks from when they went up on the IH Outlet a few years ago—they were comfortable at first, but didn’t hold up well at all

Probably totally different production facilities, but something to keep in mind

Yes, that was a special for Hemi’s shop, the Wakefield Hotel in Wellington, now sadly closed. I had a mooch around there back in 2011, a very cool little place.

Yeah Wakefield Hotel was the one.  The jeans must have been the new patterns then after the earthquake when Ande lost his workshop and machines.  I sold my pre-quake pair of Miners a few years back - in hindsight...

These appear to be made in the factory run by the Pallet Life Story brand - So the quality will be spot on too. 
 

worth a look as Andes patterns were something quite special.
