Has anyone tried on/handled one of these cardigans? I can't find any fit pics online.

Looking for some black denim. Currently wearing a pair of RGT dark stantons and the fit is pretty good but I want something with a slimmer leg opening and I'm not a huge fan of the contrast/natural button fly. I'm not a fan of the 3sixteen fit. The United Dry Stock look good but 9oz is too light, was looking for something around 12-15.

I take these Baldwins are not selvedge? http://blueowl.us/product/baldwin-denim-the-henley-12oz-blackout-cone-mills-denim-in-indigoblack-overdye/

Any suggestions?

Correct, those Baldwin are unfortunately not selvedge. I would suggest the Big John KURO2 fabric in their Slim Tapered fit. It will be a bit slimmer in the leg opening and pretty comparable in the thigh and knee for same waist size.

The fit is pretty relaxed, and a bit on the shorter side. If you'd like we could put someone here in one of them and take some shots for you.

Any plans for a Memorial Day sale? Thanks.
post #2391 of 2479
BlueOwl doesn't do conventional sales.
post #2392 of 2479
Thanks again J, ...as far as the Big John you referenced above, I have those; it's the only black denim I wear these days...the history of the brand sold me initially and now that I've been wearing them for the past few months I can definitely say I'm satisfied.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Glad to hear the Big John is treating you well. Definitely an under appreciated brand.

Brand new belts and key hooks are in from Corter Leather! We've added Saddle Tan to the collection, bring us to four great belt colors. The Saddle Tan is a great dye that is painted on after the belt is made up. This color is amazing for people who don't want the bright color of a natural belt, but still want a belt that will patina and age like a natural would. We've also got the new version of the Solid Brass Key Hook, a smaller and lighter version that will, like its larger predecessor, age beautifully. Lastly, all sizes of the other three colors, Black, Natural, and Latigo, are fully restocked in both the brass and chrome buckles!

Corter Leather 14oz Vegetable Tanned Leather "Standard" Utility Belt in Saddle Tan w/ Chrome Buckle. 14oz English Bridle Leather, made in USA. Sizes 30-38. $55. For more information, click here.

The color of this solid brass will patina and age to resemble to aged brass as it is worn.

You can see the slight size difference between the two styles of Key Hook here.

Just visited the Blue Owl showroom in Seattle on Saturday for the first time and was blown away. Jay and his compadre (who's name I can't remember) were both extremely helpful and beyond knowledgeable. Jay even gave me and the gf a chainstitching demo on their vintage machine -- it was very cool to see how it's done. I tried on a huge stack of denim and they were there for fit tips on each pair and info on how the various denim would age and mold to the body. Came out with two heavy denims, really beautiful stuff. Will definitely visit again....

Thanks I was looking at the Big Johns but the thigh is too small. My Stanton's are pretty tight on the thigh (I can pinch maybe 2cm of fabric) and they measure 12.7" in a size 33.

Vermilyea Pelle (vur-MIL-yuh pel-le) is a leather goods brand that is founded on the hands of practiced craftsman, Dustin Spencer. Using machines pulled from history, and tools and techniques based in tradition, he produces a line of high-end, handmade, innovative products with sustainable old-world materials. Dustin became fascinated with traditionally made leather goods at age four in his grandfather's horse tack room. While with his grandfather, he would spend hours digging through boxes of used headstalls, looking at all the broken-in and broken down boots, dissecting the saddles and generally trying to understand how everything was put together.



The name comes Vermilyea Pelle from Dustin's family. His mother's family is from Italy. Her maiden name is Vermilyea, and Pelle is the Italian word for leather. Dustin's family tree on both sides has a long legacy of craftsman. Vermilyea Pelle is a way for him to honor his family, and the work is a continuation of his family’s craftsman heritage. The tree of his logo represents family roots and the bark used in the leather tanning process.

IMG_2692+copy.jpg


With his obsession surrounding high quality leather goods that last generations, Dustin spent a good part of his childhood and teenage years making small leather bags and moccasins. He worked as a cobbler for 12 years before starting his own brand, honing his techniques, experience and understanding of leather and the vintage machines used to form them. In 2008 Dustin started Vermilyea Pelle in Wenatchee, Washington, with just one vintage machine and a handfull of traditional tools in an effort to pool all his experience, knowledge and interest.



While Dustin built his shop he also built strong relationships with US companies who craft the raw materials from which his designs are inspired. From creating tanning recipes with the famous Horween Leathers out of Chicago or designing custom Shoes with Rancourt & Co out of Maine, Dustin builds partnerships based on respect for the heritage of the companies and a common interest in the techniques they use to make high quality goods. We at Blue Owl are delighted to work with a brand so devoted to quality craftsmanship and materials, even more when we can support an up and coming Northwest business. We will be introducing some exclusive horse hide and English bridle leather belts in mid June, and are looking at wallets and other pieces for the future. We are very excited to introduce Vermilyea Pelle to the Blue Owl collection for both the details and design of Dustin's work.

those railcars coming into stock soon jay?  Saw your shipment on instagram

post #2398 of 2479
Railcar is online now. Here are some details on our new Momotaro collaboration!

IMG_2710+copy.jpg
With each collaboration we design we try to beat ourselves to create an even better denim. The BOM006 was an amazing denim, but BOM008 is going to give it a run for its money. Weighing in at 18oz, our newest collaboration is made from a brand new fabric out of Rampuya, using their Deep Indigo dye. The Deep Indigo is the darker counterpart to the Grand Indigo, also using an indigo warp and sulphur weft, but the indigo used creates a deep midnight blue.
IMG_9070+copy.jpg
The 18oz sanforized denim is smooth to the touch, but small irregularities in the yarn will give it tons of fading character. This year Momotaro has changed things up with the cotton: Because Australia and America had amazing crops, this denim uses a 100% American cotton warp and a 100% Australian cotton weft. The Australian cotton is silky smooth to the touch, making the denim amazingly comfortable despite the heavy weight.
IMG_9058+copy.jpg
BOM008 brings us a much overdue, brand new patch design! After working with of some of our customers to design something new and exciting we've gone with this variation on the classic Momotaro patch, courtesy of Erik B. As thanks for helping make this collaboration our best yet, Erik will receive a free pair of BOM008!
IMG_9069+copy.jpg<<br /> Of course, with all the astonishing faded stripes we've seen from BOM006, we couldn't resist putting the stealth stripes in. Once again 100% kangaroo leather strips have been sewn into the back pocket. As the denim is worn these stripes will fade into the pocket, creating the classic Momotaro icon through pure raw denim ethos.
IMG_9067+copy.jpg
This photo displays the inside of the back pocket. You can see where the leather strips are sewn in, and the new pocket bag design. Both back pockets are fully lined.
IMG_9072+copy.jpg
As always with Momotaro, you can expect all of the top notch details. The coin pocket gives just a peak at the selvedge, and each rivet is custom branded and perfectly placed.
IMG_9088+copy.jpg
The nickel buttons compliment the dark denim, and like all Momotaro jeans the buttons are custom branded with Momotaro's peach. In this photo you can see the back pocket rivet, a detail that further ensures the durability of the top block.
IMG_9094+copy.jpg
The back of Momotaro's rivets are also custom made. The new pocket bags add a hint of color hidden inside the denim.
IMG_9097+copy.jpg
The Australian cotton weft of the denim has a sheen that makes it almost appear a deep grey. Like the warp, despite being smooth, the weft has an interesting visual texture.
IMG_9104+copy.jpg
Keeping true to Momotaro details, we have white and pink selvedge, and a pink inseam stitch. There are currently 100 pairs of BOM008 in production, in both skinny and tapered fits. We expect the denim to arrive in early August, so keep your eyes peeled!

Jay, I've been thinking about those BOM008's quite a bit over the last few days after seeing your blogpost and I know I'll definitely try to snag a pair once they're released. In terms of sizing, should we expect the measurements to be very similar to BOM006?

The denim will be cut on the same patterns as BOM006, but there is always some variation. We will release exact measurements for the jean before putting the item online so that people know what size to order.
