Tender Co. Denim

Recommended Posts

thanks ooms and william! my 128s have been shelved for a while; I think at some point I realized the rise was still quite low and opted to focus on my 129s instead. i've considered a few attempts to merge the two, such as pulling the patch pockets off of the 128s and transferring them to the 129s, or frankensteining the 4+inch hem scraps from the 129s into a double stacked waistband on the 128s, but this has all been stymied as i've been preoccupied endlessly postponing fixing my sewing machine tensioner. one day they'll be back!!!

Got myself a tender belt. It is amazing. And thick as nothing i've had before. Love it!

Wondering how much waist stretch you guys have experienced? 

In the 132/130 cuts, are you able to wear without a belt?

I picked up a pair of 130s a while ago size 3. They measured 32" in the waist, but now they're at 34" and I can't really wear them without a belt. 

Amazing jeans, but wondering whether I should have tried a size 2...

I remember Bill making a great post some time back about the production of the acetate sunglasses, but I'm not having any luck finding it. Anyone happen to have a link (or better forum search skills than me)?

Here you go @julian-wolf! Back on page 26. The process is exactly the same, although the first batches were made by a guy called Matt who's since moved on to other things, but I was very lucky that the frame-maker who taught Matt agreed to take on my work- the current production is now made entirely by him, but it's the same may of making, from the same materials.

The only design changes since this post^ are that the temples are now cut with curved-down earpieces, rather than straight (straight sides are nice, but I found them a bit uncomfortable to wear for long periods, and they really need to be individually adjusted to the owner's head, which not everyone is able to get done), and the fronts are now carved from a single, thicker sheet of acetate. This means there's no need to glue on nose-pieces, rather the thinner section around the orbit is thinned back- it gives the frame a lovely solidity to it, which I'm really happy with.

I've just received a delivery of various styles and colours, which are up on the Stores!

Great info as usual, @rodeo bill, thanks for this. On the same topic, do you have sizing info available for the glasses? Lens size / bridge width?

thanks for this Julian, and sure- I can give measurements for anything you like. Would you mind emailing me, please? and I can give specific measurements of whichever style(s) you're interested in. Thanks again!
