    was it the stitching or the denim that tipped you off?

    Is one of the pairs on the left my SD-103's? Hopefully there's a new Redmoon belt there as well...

    wow go brian! didn't think anyone would get the warehouse x hinoya one.
    you got one wrong though. it's the ai-001 not the xx-003

    robbie, that's for tomorrow. it was a busy day today.

    Ahh bummer.

    Eternals - patch and color. That one was a dead giveaway
    Horsehair patch gave away the 2nd from the right
    PBJ.. blue "JAPAN" tab... but didnt know it was AI, that one was tough. I should have known, since they're lighter than those Eternals.
    Duck Diggers - the denim is a dead giveaway. Totally unique.
    S'DA - the patch for the 21oz'ers has no colors on it (no red writing, no blue writing).

    Are both those SD's on the left the same? The color seems different for each.

    My favorites are Rag&Bone, 5EP, Helmut Lang and Studio D'Artisan. I really want to see those Pure Blues in person. I would call them some of my favorites but that would be just wrong since I haven't had the chance to witness their beauty.

    My favorite denim fabric is from Rag&Bone and Warehouse Duck Diggers. They're pretty similar in texture (though Rag&Bone is toned down quite a bit) - what I like about both of them is that the weft threads have as much variation as warp threads, so a swatch of denim is practically 3-dimensional. I'd be really curious to know which mill R&B denim comes from. It's definitely of the same quality as the better Japanese stuff.

    The only downside of R&B is that they don't wear in drastically. I'm starting to enjoy this however. They keep their lustre even after a wash. Plus R&B has women's jeans now and my gf in R&B jeans is [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    oh, and I'm dying to see the Studio D'Artisan D-1237s in person. The fabric on them is top notch. Might be the best I've ever seen!

    yeah they're the same. the D1177's kinda change depending on how the light hits it. seriously considering on picking up a pair since its so cold in michigan.
