Ande Whall Denim

Recommended Posts

Yeah can't wait to get the shirts sorted out. I have been working on this western style one for a long time now...just trying to save up for some custom pearl snaps!

 

Hey Andy,

 

Any progress on the Western shirts yet? 

 

Thanks

I wonder if that grey denim on the SR10 will fade noticeably or just gradually diminish in tone over time? I'm assuming the latter as it's not very dark to begin with. Haven't seen many examples of faded grey denim around.

Been looking for Type 2 styled jacked lately...I like the Wolf for the most part but the rounded collar bothers me a little. Any other suggestions for a ~46/47" chest and 20" shoulders? Seems like japenese brands don't always make sized big enough for my 6' 210lb frame.

 

Also, decided to move on from my pair of SR9. Ended up buying some Roy KS1002 which I prefer the fit of right now. Still hoping to see some pictures of the SR9's when somebody gets some wear on them!

 

My pair (35x34) is only listed on Reddit for now. Let me know if you're interested!

Put in an order for a pair of the 21oz for myself and a friend a week and a half ago and yesterday had a very special delivery. I've been coveting a pair from Ande for about 2 years now and his workmanship does not disappoint. His replies to emails were super quick and friendly. Love the denim, really soft and easy to wear. It's my friends first foray into raw and going 21oz is taking a huge leap but I think I've found a convert. And I'm pretty sure this won't be my last purchase from Ande.

This deserves a bump. I have 3 pairs of Ande Whall Cobras and haven't even worn the 2 remaining pairs because I keep going back to my usual pair. Sitting there crips and brand new. Lol.

^ Are they all the same denim or different types?

My SR8 Caribous are still getting most of my attention of late.  Just a superb cut for me.  Denim isnt showing any sign of wear after roughly 4 months of solid wear, but who cares.

 

Was keen to sample the 21oz denim of Ande's in the Caribou or Buffalo cut, but see this denim is already discontinued.  Damn.  I wasnt aware that this was a limited run, thought the 21oz was added to the staple range..

 

Perhaps the 'standard' denim will get the nod instead :)

Mild, in the description for the 21ozers it did state that they were a limited edition, although not a SR. It even mentioned when Ande was down to the last half roll! I think there's going to be a nice surprise for the next SR though, which will definitely be worth waiting for!

Meanwhile, I have a pair of SR10 Buffalo due to arrive any day now... looking forward to some grey jeans to mix it up a bit.

Received my SR10 Buffalos today - a beautiful pair of grey jeans. Never had grey before but have always fancied a pair as I'd like an occasional change from indigo and I'm not into black jeans (or chinos), so for me it's always a suit, jeans or shorts. Anyway, they're a really nice, light-mid weight 13oz grey denim with a white weft and a blue selvage ID. Once I give them a pre-wash, I'll get some photos up. Ande even included a spare rivet and fly buttons in the package - first rate service as usual. Oh, I almost forgot, they have great cowgirl print pocket bags!

If you're on the fence about grey jeans, jump off before you get splinters in your arse and buy a pair of these!

Just purchased a pair of 13.5 oz Caribou's in size 29, haven't been active for a few years but am excited to finally get back in it! 

 

Anyone know how long it takes to ship to the US? I'll be counting down the days... 

 

Thanks,

Dan

Got my jeans in a couple of days ago, haven't had time to take a fit pic yet but here's some detailed shots!

Overall the top block is a little bit bigger than I was expecting, still love the jeans. Only thing I would change is I should have gotten a 32 length instead of 34 but that can be fixed later.

 

Thanks for looking,

Dan

I've washed my SR7 Buffalos about 3 times now and the left hand twill denim is really coming to life - electric blue creases and some beautiful vertical falling is starting to become apparent. Although Ande said this would happen, I was a little skeptical as the denim started out quite uniform looking with no obvious signs of what was to come. I'll get some pictures up soon as obviously, they speak a thousand words! I'm really enjoying them though and haven't really worn other jeans much since April.

Also waiting on the Pictures of the Greys you bought?

Maybe this was just a rumour ;)

Hey fellas, what's happening in the world of blue pants!?

 

Have any of you guys had any problems with picture smallifacation on the website? I keep getting the odd dude getting problems. I have contacted imageshack a few times, but everything seems normal. The last guy said he was using windows with chrome and firefox. I have never seen the problem myself with mac and safari/firefox. A bit annoying. I'm no computer tech wizard, but someone might know what's up.

 

My 60+ year old TNT courier driver just dropped off some denim. He's classic, he whinges about the heavy denim rolls every time...they roll around the back from side to side and crush the other packages, haha...I keep sayin', tie 'em down mate.

Good to hear from you Ande, how u doin'? I view your site on my iPhone and Safari/Firefox on my Mac. Sometimes the pictures are big, sometimes small, particularly on the SR10 photos.

Are you going to announce what that denim is or leave everyone guessing? My SR7s are really coming alive now - electric blues and raised vertical falling, they're almost poetry inspiring! ;)

Actually it seems imageshack is having some problems where the pictures are no longer being hosted or something. However, that being said, browsing through a few sections of your site everything looks fine.

hi ande, as maynard experienced, the problem would sometimes come up when you dig into the individual jean's sub-menu (from the "info" menu on the right-hand side of the page). this just happened on my iphone (but appears normal on my laptop (macbook pro):

btw, i regret not getting the blue-arc sr8 (still ande whall-less). are you going to do another sr with a blue arc again anytime soon? :)

Cheers fellas, and thanks ooms, I've never seen what it looks like. It should be all fine now, when in doubt re-upload the whole bloody thing. I think the internet guys like imageshack probably change things around all the time, so it's probably just best to upload everything from scratch every so often huh.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news Ande, but those SR10 pictures from the menu on the right are still small when viewing on my iPhone. I just checked.

Hey guys.

 

I don't post much on SF, but I thought I'd share my excitement about my new (and old) Ande Whalls.

 

My brand new main line Mustangs just arrived and they look great. I'll spare the obligatory unboxing/unwrapping photo, but here is the inter-generational photo of them next to my well worn Grifters from a long long time ago:

The old Grifters are from back in the days when Ande was using unsanforized Cone Mills denim. They wore really well and got some good fade despite never being washed. Yeah, 3 years before they were retired and no washes. Kinda dumb!

One of the great features was the heavy canvas pockets. It was rough on the knuckles for the first few months, but it softened up eventually and was quite strong.

 

Now here's the unboxing photo... the Grifters back in Nov. '08:

So here's to Ande and beating the hell out of a crisp new pair of his jeans!

as i'm wearing my old 13oz Cobras right now, that's inspiring me to do a before/after of my own.

SR11s are up! Same as the SR7 - left hand twill in natural indigo but with different pocket bags. As my SR7 Buffalos are probably my favourite jeans, I'm going to get a pair of these and then I'm done with buying denim (for now...).

hehe, yeah right.

 

13.5oz'ers will be my next pair.  My SR8's are going well, and the Caribou cut is jut superb.  If anything the SR8 are too soft, hoping the 13.5 will be the perfect pair of jeans.
