That's what my concern is.  If it's coming from you then I'm going to steer clear.  If I had $300 I'd pick em up for myself, they're in my size!! drool.gif

Can anyone help me identify this belt? It was a bit pricier, but I could use it myself anyway so I picked it up.

And finally another question. I found some Levis Engineered Jeans today but they were super weird. Cuffed bottoms with a cinch on the back. But they were made in Japan selvedge denim. I wasn't sure if that was a good pick-up or not at 8-9 dollars, It was in great condition though.

Yip! Do it and send them to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I came across some Levi's engineered made in Japan today as well but they didn't appear to be selvedge. Denim Made in Japan but not raw, is that something that is done?

X Post from Ebay thread.

My local had their periodic sale. So their wool trou were a scant $1 each. Picked up every last stained-ass wool trou I could find so I could test the following wool-safe stain removal methods:
Water (control)
Weak Woolite solution soak
Strong Woolite solution soak
Woolite with enzyme stain remover pre-treat to waistband
Water with enzyme stain remover pre-treat to waistband
Woolite with detergent stain remover pre-treat to waistband
Water with detergent stain remover pre-treat to waistband
Woolite with Lanolin hand cleaner pre-treat to waistband
Water with lanolin hand cleaner pre-treat to waistband

Unfortunately, I had to settle for an array of colors: only 5 of them are gray, and the rest various shades of blue, green, beige etc. That adds a nasty, undesirable variable, but we shall persevere. If anyone wants to send me your gray trou to advance the cause of science, please do so ASAP. At the moment, I don't have the means to run more than a couple of the methods simultaneously (though I am considering buying a bunch of cheap garbage cans or storage bins at the local Christmas Tree Shop....), so this may still take me a couple of weeks. (Oh, and my baby comes home tomorrow. So it's not like I'll have anything else going on, or anything) But I shall report results, complete with before/after pictures and field notes, as soon as I can.

Incidentally, I recently did a pure Woolite/warm water bath on a Pendleton tweed that had a stain on the back. The stain was lessened, but I think there was also some color loss. And the kid suede elbow patches went in very soft and came out (after air drying) extremely crispy. Something to keep in mind.

Let the experimenting begin.

Grab those Levi's !!!!!!    some people really love the "Engineered jeans" (like myself) and they have somewhat of a cult following.  THE Levi's to have.

 

edit:   just went to put mine on................Nice. love my m.i.j. selvedge Levi's.satisfied.gif

Levi's engineered jeans or levis x engineered garments?

I'm guessing levis engineered jeans which is a pass. Yeah MIJ ≠ raw selvedge. Uniqlo has a bunch of non selvedge MIJ jeans.

I will check if the museum has any overstock.

We were actually in your area (Centerville, Arlington, and DC) the last couple of days, but we were doing more of the touristy things and not shopping.
