3sixteen was founded in NY. Andrew used to be a business consultant there before doing 3s full-time. Their hypebeast tee's weren't really hypebeast-y in the way other "hip-hop" t-shirt lines are. They also sponsored some rappers, one being Supastition that I liked. I'm pretty sure they were only capable of doing graphic tee's at first from a cost perspective. wait what, all the stuff online is mostly made in u.s.a
LOL. But seriously, wtf? Does that chainstich for real?l?
chainstitching was developed in the 3rd-5th century BC, i believe that a $20 product 2600 years later can do it edit: Most household chainstitch machines are either very old, or toys intended for children. from Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sewing_...sewing_machine)
So why is chainstiching, and sourcing a place to do it, so seemingly elusive?
because for the full authentic experience, denimnerds insist that the machine also be 50 years old. imagine if someone wanted to run legacy DOS software and insisted that he find a 10 year old computer to run it on. would be laughable. there are tons of machines that can chainstitch a pair of jeans, according to wiki.
Just blindkopped some Jil Sander x Church's derbys, no idea if they'll fit me. Any insight on the sizing ?
Depends on the last I guess, but IME they run like Church's, so go by UK size and size a full size down from your US size. I wear an 8.5 in Vans or something like that and prefer a 41 most of those sneakers on the CP sole (raf, lanvin, CP, etc) and I have a pair of the wholecut Jil X Church's in UK7.5 that would be very comparable in size.
