I can only hope they open a MTM TOJ-esque service... That barn coat looks amazing.

John and Nick said they are still working on defining what they want to do with shirts. So custom shirts aren't available at this time but that may change sometime down the road. They want to concentrate on jeans and some accessories for now.

I visited Jack Knife yesterday for my first fitting.

Here are a pair of completed jeans waiting for a customer.

509

These are my jeans. I love the rich color and the feel of the cloth. Note that I asked for hidden rivets. There is no waist band, that will be added for the final fitting.


284


You can see the rear pocket rivets from inside.

263

And the blue tape sewn seams

273


The fabric is a white selvage denim and you can see the edge on the coin or jack knife pocket


255


SF's own emptym stopped by during my appointment and was looking at some of the Jack Knife fabrics including these two vintage chambray materials


355


This one is a deadstock chambray that is over 40 years old. It was a gift to them from the maker.

263

It has been an enjoyable process and I look forward to seeing them again next week for my next fitting.

why do you think its interesting?
post #68 of 160
Because I'm a jeans n00b and I've never seen that before. My curiosity has been piqued, in a pleasant way.

PSG, do you try them on at all on the first fitting? Mine is scheduled for the 1st of Feb.

The thread "i'm having a pair of jeans made" is from a Superfuture guy mizanation about a pair of jeans he had made by Kuniyoshi, "a master denim tailor who worked for years in a very famous denim factory in okayama, the mecca of japanese denim".

It is is a marvelous introduction to the hidden complexities of jeans, like hidden rivets.

The guy was obsessive about taking photo's about the whole affair- it's a great and wonderful thread. Here's an idea of the depth of details shown there:

A great and wonderful thread, as good an introduction to jeans making as could be imagined.

Thanks for letting me tag along, PSG. Really enjoyed meeting John and Nick and checking out their shop. They have a wonderful story and some tremendous passion. Looking forward to working w/ them on a couple projects.

My first fitting is Thursday. I opted for hidden rivets too. Less work-wear-like IMO and the denim wears so nicely over the rivets.

I agree. creates a nice fade. Im holding off on my fitting because I need to lose a few holiday lbs to get back into my regular weight.
