No. Prewashed give no clue because they're usually made in a different factory, sometimes from different fabric. Sorry! THere...
1955. Worn true to size, maybe 10 months' wear, 3 washes.
Edwin jeans tend to be excellent value, they were one of the first vintage-style denim manufacturers in Japan and they also make the excellent Lee and Wrangler repros. Personally I hate the coin pocket selvage, but the detailing and the denim look excellent for the money.
Yeah! Glad to see this thread. I'm a fan, hoping to get a spare day to make a pilgrimage to the factory shop this fall. These Stow are now two years old, probably a year's consistent wear. The Bureau in Belfast do some beautiful custom versions: http://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop...or-the-bureau/ And Present, Shoreditch, have an interesting range of Vibram sole versions. Not to my personal taste but I always love to see Tricker's featured in a new...
The photos are of genuine items but the site is obviously bootleg. Many of the descriptions don't match the relevant jackets. If you sent them money, perhaps you'd get a cheap and nasty fake, more likely you'll get nothing.

Is the Mojave really a Belstaff jacket? A brand bought by an Italian company, who move all production to a different country, get rid of the old designs and replace them with up-priced replicas, introduce naff leather...

That's certainly possible, they did indeed have some orange tab in the LVC line before they introduced the whole range; the ones I saw in Europe all had LVC tags, but...
I think these are the Orange Tab reissues of roughly a year ago. Which were reissues, but not distributed by LVC. They were great, not quite LVC prices, I think I saw them retailing for £100 or so. Good catch, I think. A lot of denim nerds who have gone beyond the simple 'selvage is best' philosophy love the fading and other qualities of the Orange Tabs. I believe that is OE yarn - which is getting increasingly hard to find! Can't find my catalogue, but here's a...

This is terrific. We buy denim; the democratic, working fabric celebrated for its association with hard-bitten cowboys, dustbowl icons, rosie the riveter, rock'n'rollers and skinheads. And then we scream: Oh no, there's a wrinkle in my hem! The solution, of course, is to cut them off at the knee and wear them as shorts.
