    Any idea when polycotton thread is coming ?

    Soon, but then again, they've been saying "soon" for over a year now.
    In other news, look forward to the Meguro Mission project... more info on that shit later.

    I like the last shirt - ditto, those pocket buttons are awesome. Not sure about the first one though!

    polycotton thread is way overrated. Have worn mine for almost 8 months now with no problems.

    Agreed.
    It's more about the TYPE of cotton thread that's used..
    I don't think anybody here realizes that ALL Sugar Cane jeans are stitched with 100% cotton thread, yet ever hear about SC jeans' thread coming apart?

    Well, skulls are KNOWN to have pretty bad cotton threads that fall apart, which is the only thing preventing me from buying them

    The issue is WAY overblown... it's not nearly as common as people think it is.
    We sell more Skull jeans than anybody outside of Japan and i can tell you that we have the same number of Skulls come back for repair many months later than any other brand (with the exception of Iron Heart which never comes back..).

    EDIT: If you really must have cotton poly-core thread, wait for the Meguro Mission.

    agreed. if you're not buying skulls due to lack of polycotton thread, you're missing out on one of life's greatest opportunities.

    i almost prefer cotton thread as it fades with the jeans. repairs are fun too and contribute to individuality.

    being that going to a tailor is always a pain for me due to opportunities when I can go/the distance for a competent one, i prefer as little amount of tailor trips as possible
