My experience at captains was very good. I also had custom shoes MTM by the guys at Roberts & Hassett.

Extremely mixed reports (to be kind) re Captains of Industry Tailor guy and service & delivery - stretching back to other previous ventures as well. Caveat emptor

Japan Blue 14.8oz Skinny Straight Vintage Raw Selvedge Denim - Model JB0201

I have a pair arriving tomorrow. Jay from Blue Owl has hemmed them for me. I have requested no cuffs on my jeans.

I took TBMs advice on trying on some jeans (Nudies et al). They were all great, but I felt like I wanted something Japanese, something not every common. Has anyone dealt with Blue Owl before? Surely these jeans are comparable in quality to Nudies/Just Jeans?

i bought a pair in the previous model in Tokyo - great jeans and good quality for the price. Im selling mine as they weren't as skinny as i thought they would be after they were chain stitched.

i believe these are made out of the momotaro factory and yes they are a world apart to nudies smile.gif

Thanks for the link and resource - it's very helpful.

Where does Farage sit? In the table or in the avoid section?

Great to hear. I didn't want anything skinny tight - so maybe these will work.

 

I have 2 pairs of jeans at the moment. One from Industrie and one from Wrangler. Neither really wowed me. The Nudies were a bit tight for my liking.

Just heard that a Comme Des Garcons pop up store is opening on December 8 in Melbourne / Rankins Lane.

Would've thought it's a little late to be asking opinions on something arriving tomorrow? All you're going to achieve there is buyers remorse if it turns out you've bought a dud/something which turns out not to be SF approved.

I received my Apolis chinos today. I have never owned chinos, these are my first ones, so I wish I could give you a comparison.

Had a good chuckle at the random vietnamese temple shot. Complete with mint Danner hiking boots. Travelling vietnam - hipster style.

Is it better to live ones life completely oblivious to the flaws surrounding them, or to live in despair having learned the bitter truth?

Yeah, not good. I don't trust any jacket where the seller recommends "sizing down" for a "tailored fit".

Having just dropped good money on it, I'd rather not look at it with disappointment every time I open the drawer - after all, they say ignorance is bliss. Plenty of time to discover its flaws on your own.

BTW guys, having a whale of a time over at the Jos A Bank website - they're offering 70% off just about everything on site (including shoe trees if you have midget feet).

 

Unfortunately there's quite a lot of items they won't ship internationally due to 'low inventory' - shoes, larger size shoes trees & some other accessories for example.
