It has to do with how it's woven and the starch content in the fabric as well, but also how stuff/scratchy it feels. I've been getting custom jeans from Soso for a while now, and their 18oz denim is stiff but also super soft on the inside. It feels like you're wearing fresh dickies for a few days, but the inside cotton feels really soft against the leg
def this, I couldn’t think of the right word as wrote it.

the strike golds are rough compared to other things.

how much is an aeron these days?
US $1000-$1500 at retail depending on upgrades. You can get it for 40% off if you know where to look. E.g. a group buy, or just asking for quotes from office supply companies. They want the business.

If you’re in the US they’re very easy to find used. Less so in other countries. We’re still stuck in lockdown and I haven’t regretted having an Embody at home.

I’m tempted by these. The measurements and the slub look really similar to the Warehouse “Duck Diggers” I’ve been living in for the past few weeks but these (my Duck Diggers) are 13.5oz and it would be interesting to try one of these super heavy denims.

FWIW, for years I had one pair of Levi’s 501 jeans and nothing else. I had seldom even worn them for about a year and then #WFH began and when I went to put them on again I had lost enough weight that they were just falling off of me. So I sort of went on a denim buying spree at the end of last summer. I ended up with a pair of the Samurai “Cotton Project”, the Duck Diggers I’m wearing, two pair of WH Ranch (one of which I actually ordered in 2016 and finally just arrived), a pair from Roy, some LVC, Orslow 107, TCB ‘50s, Japan Blue, and some from Sugarcane.

The Duck Diggers are my favorite followed closely by the Samurai. The TCB are probably the best value though and I’d be happy if they were all I had.

I have an extra of this shirt in 1 size up from what I'm wearing. Will give to whoever wants it and will cover the cost of shipping!

especially when I switched over to cargo pants to boot tuck and pop sneakers.
I just can't do cargo pants, every time I've bought a pair they end up being resold or donated. I like the way they look on other folks but then on myself not so much.
Speak for yourself. My aeron is upholstered with sandpaper.
I saved about $900 by just getting a chair off Wayfair that is upholstered with cotton just one step up

You for real? I'm curious what size if you want to DM me.

That is a pretty intense buying spree but you definitely covered some great brands. I also like TCB a lot. Japan Blue is a great value as well. The thing for me with Sugarcane is I've never been able to find something of theirs that fit me like I like. I really like their denim and my lower legs are just always swimming in fabric. I know you can taper jeans and I do have a good tailor, but I never really want to risk ruining a pair of jeans that nice by altering too much.

RE Camp shirts: I didn't see anyone mention it (although I admit I may have missed it), but RRL Camp shirts have some dope prints.
