Warehouse

The Motorcycle Dispatch Jacket is a lovely design - not so much in denim though

So it’s the denim, fair enough. It’s Warehouse’s own interpretation of the change from Levi’s (predominant) use of natural indigo denim from Amoskeag Mills up until the early 20th century to using (what I thought was primarily synthetic indigo) denim from Cone Mills around 1915.

There’s few constructional details that are different that I am aware of - the waistband of the 1901s would be 2 pieces joined, and it looks to me that Warehouse have picked that up, plus raw edges wouldn’t be overlocked on the 1901 as they would on the 1915 (again Warehouse have got that too)

 

Oops - and of course the back panels flipped hand from Right over Left to Left over Right

Duke I could see you being able to pull something like the motorcycle jacket off. 

Winners for me are: 1901's, brown 1915's, lot 3035 loose fit (chambray and denim) and the Yusuke Hanai Jaguar tee.
I recently picked up two WH tees and they are now my favorite t-shirts. I'm not as crazy about the graphics offered this year, but I do like the USN Short graphic.

I like the 1915's but of course, suspender only makes them less versatile. The color-block tee's are awesome. I'm not sure they're loop wheeled...?

Definitely want to purchase the 1915 model. @Broark do you know when they put up the size charts?

@Dr_Heech I think the charts won't be posted until the production run is ready.
This last season I noticed that other retailers received their inventory of the Deadstock Blues before WH ever posted their size charts, so it's possible you might be able to see charts / purchase from somewhere like Hinoya before the measurements are up on the WH site.

More playing with my the camera ....

Definitely my favourite shirt I own , I only own 4 shirts and 3 of the 4 are chambrays so my choice is limited but to me it really is the perfect shirt ( for me )

It's been well worn over the 6 or so years I've owned it and it's still rock solid

Can anyone tell me the different models the c/l fabric was used on?

Thanks @goodrain

im seeing a bunch of 1003xx with the light cream and purple patches, so I’m wondering what those are about. None indicate they are c/l and they all look like new releases. Does anyone have any info on those?

Really!?! A Pandemic contest. Even though we are still in the middle of one? With people getting sick and losing their lives!?

Personally I think that this is in bad taste.

@heyson do you have the link or bigger pictures of the denim? the C/L has a distinct look and the shot that you posted does not look like it.

That's the beauty of capitalism, baby. Everything becomes commodity and spectacle... even death and despair. Gotta love it! /s

Here’s a old photo of my C/L 800s for comparison. It’s one of the most textured denim I’ve seen come out of Warehouse recently and I don’t think these are the same denim. 
 

I really wish they would bring this denim back because I would love to have a lightweight Type I.

I think there's a member of the Signet team that we all know well who thinks the whole thing is a hoax...
I'd like to join the contest because I love WH, just not sure if I'm onboard with the other implications that popped up when the organization of the contest happened.

Wasn't this supposed to happen then got delayed because of covid and Ed, then the tcb contest started at the tail end of the UK pandemic so I don't think it's much different regarding pandemic personally.

^^l've no problem with a contest, It's nice to have things to distract us from the pandemic, but to call it a pandemic contest l thought was a little insensitive. Anyway, l've clogged up the thread enough, it was just my personal opinion.

Carry on...
