Both jackets look great, I'd love to see the type 900 pattern return. It's got a nice dash of both denim jacket and chore coat.

Ready for tender. Whats a cut thats loose and high rise? Molleton fabric? Hows the sizing? Hows the shrinkage? And where to buy online?

Try the 132 cut ed, you'll probably want either a size 4 (34-36" waist) or 5 (36-38"). Shrinkage on the denim depends on whether it's dyed--all the overdyed fabrics have been shrunk. Not sure about molleton specifically. And most tender stuff is available at tenderstores.com . hope that helps.

Thanks! The last 900 jacket sold a few weeks ago, and I've put some more into the next denim production.

Thanks for this, and thanks Chicote, too! I agree 132's what you're after, and I'd guess a size 4 would be right for you, although please email me if you need full measurements etc. We have both 'Unborn' (raw) and rinsed molleton versions of these in stock. Unborn will shrink to size, the molleton versions have already been rinsed to shrink, or shrunk during dyeing. Please just let me know if you need any further information.

Thanks Edmond! Here are the pre-wash measurements for 132 Unborn jeans.

Size 4:

Waist: 38"

Thigh (3" down from crotch): 14.25"

Knee (14" down from crotch): 11.75"

Hem: 9"

Inseam: 40"

 

Size 5:

Waist: 40"

Thigh (3" down from crotch): 14.5"

Knee (14" down from crotch): 12.25"

Hem: 9.5"

Inseam: 40"

These are raw unsanforized, and will shrink down ~2" in the waist and ~3" in the leg with a warm soak, or slightly more with a hot wash. Every other version of these jeans has already been shrunk during rinsing or dyeing.

Shirt fits vary depending on the style and fabric, but generally speaking Tender shirts fit fairly generously compared to other repro-style brands. A size 4 is a Tender L, but in most styles fits comparably to other brands' XL, a 5 is a Tender XL but equates to an XXL for a lot of other brands. I hope this helps- please email me if you need more specific measurements.

^PM'd you!

Our good friend Morten (who makes For Holding Up The Trousers suspenders and belts) has been staying for a couple of days, and this morning I took some photos of his type900 jacket (photos of the same style one page back). His is the logwood version, and is looking really lovely:

here it is on, with Morten's own 422 woad linen shirt, 423 khaki low-tension sateen wallaby pocket shirt, and black Telegraph dial GS/TP:

and here's a BFF shot, in matching shirts...

Labels over the year, glad you are still doing these William.

Always enjoyed reading small historical background about the product.

lovely! thank you. I'll see if I can put together a full family photo- I keep meaning to do this but I'm pretty frantic at the moment. In the meantime, this is literally a one-off mug (on the trestle shop) but I happened to be at the pottery when it was being made, so I tool a few photos. 'Nettles' sgraffito mug:

good to hear that you are busy!

bumping the thread whilst selfishly awaiting the treasure trove of fit-pics you bring from your japanese visits

finding #tenderco on the 'ol IG brings some good results

posting some favourites here whilst waiting

by a user who has also done a youtube review...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q55sDJs-GPo&t=43s

also, total props to chicote's fit pic on the recent waywt thread: never seen a tender shirt tucked in!

+ some more of faves by a range of IG posters this time

[hope this is not inappropriate]

enjoying the mega sizing and unisex / gender fluid appeal 

[thinking here of possible comparisons to eckhaus latta and craig green, but from a quick trip to dover street market to check at least one of those can confirm tender construction and material is in another stratosphere... tender is clothes to really wear in, not just pose in] 

and much love for the 921 shirt

(is that the same denim as for the jeans?)

Thanks so much for these! To be honest I don't see much of Instagram so it's really nice to get a look at how people are wearing things. The denim 921 is indeed the same denim as the jeans, although it's been desized (had the starch washed out) and tumbled to soften it up a bit. It's here if you're interested. Thanks very much also for the comparisons with some great stuff (I didn't know Eckhaus Latta, looks really interesting). My Japan trip will be mid-September, and we're doing a popup at Diaries in Nagoya, which should be fantastic- I've never visited but they always order really interestingly and I gather they have some very loyal Tender customers. Sorry it's a way off, but pictures to come, for sure.

In the meantime I'm getting through the coming Autumn production (first pieces should be available in a couple of weeks) and finishing up samples for Spring 2018, as well as holding down GS/TP, Whooper, and everything else.... More soon!

^this is such a great shot, I always really like your photos- thank you!

While various Tender stuff percolates, here are a few more details about THEN, which has been mentioned briefly a couple of times. It's a very small project, but which I feel really good about- it's been quite a bit of work but is very personal. I came across a fantastic archive of mid-20th Century fabric designs, which were lovely in their own right, but also really strongly reminded me of my grandparents and great-aunt, who were designers working from the 1940s to the 80s. The idea was to take these fabrics (reworked a bit), and cut them into the kind of clothes which people like my grandparents wore. While the work they did was pretty avant garde, the clothes they wore themselves were very simple and tasteful, almost conservative.

Fabrics got woven up in the UK, and the garments are made to a very precise, tailored, level, in Japan. Bone china swingtags are an homage to Barbara Hepworth, and are made in England. Here are a few photos:

5963f41ca5c13_akira1.thumb.jpg.d75af8cd31926c35ab42e69b3f14dab3.jpg5963f421a462b_akira2.thumb.jpg.5d33038643c8b3876a478d9e2b875290.jpg5963f428bfea5_akira3.thumb.jpg.3c6aaebbc792980be370597466f45f49.jpg5963f43ab94d4_akira4.thumb.jpg.66802e79673071b795be7dc2d87d8d74.jpg5963f44401c07_akira5.thumb.jpg.cb4ca6e9d8511cfcbfd2cb490db976fa.jpgDSC_4300.thumb.jpg.e35167d5397e1005d163a1ca0dc40e2c.jpg

As I said, this is a personal side project, so it may not be every season, but it should keep popping up one way or another. The first production is now available at PRESENT, as well as Maidens in Tokyo and Loftman in Kyoto. The name, THEN, is partly about the idea of time (a previous era, but also a link to the future, the next step), and also a reference to a great book of photographs by Alexander Liberman, who was a friend of my grandfathers (I believe).

Apologies that this may not be for everyone, back to regular scheduled programming soon :)

Monthly 129 update:

i mostly climb in these so they get worked and washed often and are getting crazy. I just went climbing so some of the white is chalk but they generally are pretty close to what you see.

      View Advert Oni X Tanuki 20 oz Secret Denim Ultra Slim One Wash
      Tagged 32 but I'd recommend for someone who usually wears a 30 unless you got some serious twig legs.
      Purchased brand new from Denimio + hemmed, they were tight as heck on my thighs. Just tried on, then went back into the packaging. Can't return since these were hemmed. My loss, your gain. 
      Fabric is definitely Oni's, extremely hairy and should break in nicely. 20 oz but surprisingly feels lighter and rougher than my other 20oz secret denim, almost like a 16-17 oz. Blue and red selvedge ID, and co branded. No arcs.
      Chainstitch hemmed from original length, 4 cm off
      Measurements:
      Waist: 42 cm / 16.5 inch
      Front rise 24.5 cm / 9.6 inch
      Thigh: 28 cm / 11 inch
      Hem: 16.5 cm / 6.5 inch
      Inseam: 80 cm / 31.5 inch
      Note that these are one wash, minimal to no shrinking is expected but I'd suspect the denim would loosen up a bit after breaking in going by my other oni denims. Price includes shipping from Australia and PayPal fees.

      As the current DWC has drawn to a close there have been the inevitable questions from all over the cyberspace, which I occupy, as to whether there will be another contest for 2017 – 2019. Today I am pleased to make the announcement that there will be, and confirm a few details about what to expect.
       
      The theme of the latest DWC will be “back to basics”, meaning we’re going to scrap everything from the previous contests and make this one as accessible to everyone as it possibly can be, this means…
       
      Any brand or style of jeans can enter. There will be no weight categories, just one contest fits all. All entered jeans must have only 30 wears or less on day 1 of the contest. Speaking of day 1, the contest will begin on 01/11/17 and run for the standard 24 months to 01/11/19. The contest will be purely forum based, on both Superfuture and the Iron Heart forum only. Registration is open now, and will close 31/10/17. Registration fee for the contest will be a flat $20, payable via Paypal to denimworldchampionship@gmail.com . Upon registration you will be issued an entry number to validate your participation. The entry fee will be used to purchase prizes from our favourite brands and retailers for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Prizes will be announced as soon as possible after registration is complete. Once again we have something quite special planned with our friends at Iron Heart for contest jeans. Our judging panel is currently TBD.  
      So that is all for now, we’re looking forward to setting off on another denim journey with you all again soon.
       
      Regards,
