2012 fast approaching...100% sure I'm going...Any word on the Japanese denim brand list? Saw Real McCoys and Flat Head on the list (Heller's Cafe too), but it seems they're going more along the lines of pure vintage ala last year?

Ok, just a few from Saturday. Not the greatest because I found it hard to get decent shots, too many people, a little awkward and in the end I just wanted to look around and not worry about trying to take pictures. It was fun to meet a few sufu folks in the flesh like rnr and ihatebrianwilliams though. As well as see some great vintage stuff.

I was only there for about three hours on Saturday. A lot of great vintage stuff. I got to talked to David Himel and check out his leather jackets. Really like the black horsehide railman jacket. But the hightlight for me was meeting a guy from Freewheelers.

Those Himel jackets are great, two styles are coming to all the Self Edge stores this spring.

too much to look at and didn't want to spend too much time taking photos.

I tried that jacket on. Really liked it. The pricetag was a little outta my range, but damn it was nice.

Heller's Cafe also has a very similar jacket on their current line, front pockets are bit different, but otherwise almost identical.

Would you happen to have a picture of that Freewheelers guy Snake? Curious to see what they look like..Also, in case someone has missed it, they now have their own website, which makes following their production way easier.

Archival Clothing had lots of photos from Inspiration..

Yeah, the himel jacket is very similar to the Heller’s Café durable brand horsehide jacket. (http://www.ware-house.co.jp/index.php?page=item&ic=42390.)

I didn’t take any pictures. The freewheelers guy was wearing a leather hat, FW sasquatch vest, gray neal cassady shirt, and some vintage cut denim tuck inside of a 9†black engineering boots. Also wearing a lot of silver bangles. I was at the bottom level browsing through a rack of vintage leather jackets when I felt a tap on my arm. He recognized the FW UPR flannel I was wearing and introduced himself as “a guy from freewheelersâ€. He was checking out all the vintage stuff as well.
