Tender Co. Denim

Recommended Posts

Hey @julian-wolf thank you. For me it is a hard fix ha!

I was supposed to post some pictures and thoughts of them over a year ago, I think you had asked about them then. Sorry about that things got away from me.

I love them. They are aging very subtly which is great. I’m thinking about ordering a size up as I’d like them to fit a bit looser. I will put up some detail shots.

That's generally my conclusion after experiencing an arse blowout..!     :D

Haha! @mondo these actually fit me pretty well, but I tore my arse in an extreme jump! I do think these would look better on me slightly oversized

Sorry to see this. Julian's right that it's fixable- a good local tailor should be able to put a patch behind the rip and then sew over it from the outside. 

I have a soft spot for Whooper, and I've really enjoyed my pairs. I've not got much stock left, though, and I have all that there is. Please just let me know if you have any questions.

Just a quick update on my 129 Woads after the second wash. About 2 years old probably 7-8 months of wear.

Looking good! thank you, and I'm really pleased you're enjoying the cut- slim but doesn't feel that way was exactly what I was going for! I'm wearing a pair of 129s at the moment, too, from Unborn:

These have been a useful learning experience for me. I always recommend washing jeans fairly regularly, and not wearing them too tight, but this is the first time I've really tested that advice personally. These are size 4, and fit nicely when they were raw. I worn them about 6 months on and off without a wash, them washed them and they got too tight for me. I've since lost a bit of weight and they've stretched out a bit too, to now fit really nicely, relatively slim. But I'm seeing the cotton thread wear through much more quickly than I've ever had with my jeans that I've washed more frequently. I'll do some small repairs on the parts that are going, and I'm enjoying the relatively contrasty fading that I've not had for ages, but I stick by my recommendation to err on the looser side and to wash reasonably frequently!

Fresh from the mail new Tender 132x in woad. Roomy fit but I like it.

@bartlebyyphonics Yes!!! Can only recall seeing them with chunkier cuffs... liking that look... iirc the 132s taper a bit so you'll be enjoying a wider hem?

 ... shortened to 30" / 76cm-ish inseam the hem is around 25cm / getting near to that 10" mark ...

[most similar leg / hem opening in other models I have is sugar cane '47 and vintage Oshkosh bibs: the comparatively smaller rise [front and back] on the 132 means it sits lower but has less bulk in the lap, as it were...]

Noting also the Bartle-esque exploration of combining the 132 and the type 1 forms <thumbs up emoji>

When I had some logwood 130s, I recall some chin-stroking on how best to pair... so it's good to see this ^^
