post #496 of 648

how thick are the regular threads? and how thin would they have to be for repairs to look seamless? obviously using an indigo thread would help but is there a strong yet thin thread?

Polycore thread will always fair better than anything 100% cotton. Usually can get them in the same gauge too. Not sure about momo pink though

I know what I'll do if i need to reinforce the crotch though.  but it's super secret ...

....well in the spirit of sharing, here is what i am gonna do at some point if it is needed.
I could claim this as my own idea, but it isnt really.

Someone in the SuFu heavyweight contest reinforced the crotch using a cross stitch,
like the moc toe stitching on these .....

 
  ..... quoddy maliseet oxfords







now imagine this, but using a peach / pink momotaro inseam thread.... ????



Damn I like this idea haha. I think I'll do it black like MDSsmith

Hey Guys,

 

Sorry for being MIA for awhile, I've had a lot of family problems lately and my mother passed away on Sunday :( Obviously I'm incredibly sad and heartbroken and haven't been interneting as much lately.

 

But I wanted to post a few pics (albeit cellphone pics) of my jawns and give you all an update. So here's my BOM003's at about 4 months of wear. What do you guys think??

I really like the pocketknife fade that's coming in in the coin pouch. 

 

I'm going to get a friend with a nice camera to take some pictures for me so I'll have some nice high res pictures soon.

I'm disappointed with how often this seems to be plaguing these pairs. TBH, I haven't worn mine in weeks.

Is this hard? Like, I've read the thing on Rawrdenim about darning, seems easy enough but I never underestimate my ability to screw something up.

ETA: It might not have been rawrdenim since I couldn't find it. But its somewhere.

disinterest? If I'm going to have the crotch dissintegrate, I wear them more infrequently. Plus, I have a similar pair of PBJ xx009s that are well worn and faded, and have been more fun recently as my likes go through cycles.

Also, it's getting hot here - 85 yesterday.

how does the fit of the 009s compare with the 702?
