Left Field Jeans

Recommended Posts

@textandaction yes everything this week shipped USPS priority. We are eating the difference between USPS priority 2-3 day and fedex smart post because it sucked so bad. Hope shipping is much smoother and faster.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I've worn my jeans about 4 times since I got them last week... can I really not send them back to be hemmed because they are not unworn?

I would honestly prefer not to be hemming jeans that have been so recently acquainted with the danger zone, but if you're after a hem before your first wash feel free to send 'em in as long as they aren't swampy.

Hey People,

 

Just a little wash update from Japan - hand/machine washed in japan with a little detergent and hung to dry - the indigo shed was incredible. looked like blue paint in the machine!

I got some shrink in the width of the legs but not as much in the seat and waist as i didn't tumble this time. 

 

Starting to see some light fades and whites pop out. More pics when i can.

Wat up doe! Sorry I've been MIA, finals and other life stuff have taken over my time. So this is just an update on my sweats. I washed them for the third time last week. As usual, apologies in advance for potato quality of the pictures.

The hole in the crotch area hasn't really grown so I'm just watching it and letting it be.

Did anybody else notice the seemingly sudden shift in inventory as listed on the LF website? Nearly all the denim went to "Only 2 Left," without any warning or even a gradual count down/reduction over the last handful of days. I took this as an omen and finally grabbed the 17oz cone greasers in a 34 that I've been itching to get. Oddly enough, the listing for that size then went from "Only 2 Left" right back to normal.

 

Was this a glitch (or perhaps a sly marketing move  :ph34r:)?  

 

If these are new & accurate inventory numbers, however, I'd encourage anybody on the fence about a new acquisition might need to get a move on.

We've been making some changes to the website in an attempt to make it a more user friendly experience.  We recently added a backend for our brick and mortar stores so that they can place fill-in orders based off of our current stock.  

 

Essentially - all the inventory is held in the section for stores, but 2 pieces are always kept in the webstore.  If you see 1 it is the last piece, but if it says 2 there may be a little bit more than that in stock.  I've got a potential tweak in mind to fix this, but we're working as fast as we can.   B)

 

Hope you dig the 17 oz.

 

Nice pics Roger.

 

And Ukeno - very cool update.  On vacation?

Pocket bag repair looks awesome.  Love all that stuff.  Hope someone find those in a thrift store in 40 years and says "That's pretty neat".

 

Anyway - hope everyone had a nice weekend.  In case you people of Sufu were looking for a size M sweat pant there's one up on seconds as of a couple minutes ago.

Thanks for having me guys!

 

Oh last thing, we all need to thank the Denim Gods that Andrew is not in the competition. We would all lose so badly. Well, maybe @jyoni would have a shot :P

Hey Guys,

Yep, I'm in Japan. More of a training and culture visit than straight up tourism. I'm knackered. Really enjoying it though. Been here 4 weeks on Wednesday. Fly home Friday after 2 days in Tokyo seeing the sights (denim and food).

The sweat are getting some wear, but not all day as it's now become quite hot and humid so they're only being worn in the morn or evenings.

Here's a pic from yesterday at a very specific place (same place both pics)

Quite an achievement being here for me, and a real experience.

Anyone who can tell me where 'this' is will win my utmost and genuinely sincere respect, and possibly a prize (Just reading & translating the sign in Japanese doesn't count. I want people who are actually in the 'know').

Cheers.

U.

What are the flaws on the sweats that made them seconds?

About an inch and half of seam on the inside of the right leg is exposed.  Basically - the seam is closed and the damage shouldn't cause any longterm durability issues, but the seam allowances weren't enough for the fabric to tuck under itself.

Haven't been around much lately cuz of finals and school and business and life, but now it's summer! Since I posted last I've graduated from college (couldn't wear my sweats but still had some indigo on me):

So now I'm back in CA, and this morning it was cool enough to do a round of indigo dyed shoes in my sweats:

I'm also wearing an apron I made out of Cone Mills natural denim and some cheap shoes to watch how much dye they collect round after round.

Hey LF guys.  I've been pretty busy lately so have been MIA.  I have some reading to do on this LF page....

 

Sweats have been in Claremont, CA with Laurel Schwartz.  See her log below.  Sweats attended their inaugeral Pho-riday last week with the Blackblue Pho-riday peeps!  Tonight, sweats are heading out to the Ride of Silence.  http://www.twincities.com/News/ci_25788838/Silent-St-Paul-ride-reminds-bikers

 

Cheers!

Susan

Just received my Chelsea Black Marias and want to take a moment to preach to the converted:  these jeans are an excellent fit and beautiful piece of American design/craftsmanship.  On top of that, Christian & Co were very cool handling my exchange from the Greasers.  Having owned both here is my comparison on the fits for all you OCD denim heads like me:

 

The Greasers fit/look like a perfect pair of "Classic Jeans", but shrunk down a bit and just slightly slim throughout.  Tons of room up top but a clean silhouette throughout and never baggy.  

 

The Chelsea is definitely more up to date and slimmer (duh).  But NOT skinny by anyone's standards.  I could have squeezed into a 33 but got 34 and they aren't constricting at all, anywhere.  Glad I went with these! Especially since they are gonna be my dressier, drinking on the town pair.  

 

I guess I would compare the Chelsea to a Levi 513, but WAY better made and definitely more room for the man parts up top.  I have no idea how guys who wear Levi's slim handle their business.   Ditto for Naked and Famous.  Maybe I'm just (longer waisted) than them.  

 

So I'd say it's Classically Cool (Greaser) vs. Currently Cool (Chelsea).  Can't go wrong either way.  Can't come up with a reason to wear another brand, I just don't.
