BOBBIN YOU DOG

Seriously, kudos, you've got a lifetime follower from here on out. This jacket is gorgeous.

E:
More shots below, I'll get my good camera and do a review probably at some point. Wouldn't do the jacket justice just using my phone with the horrid tinge to it.

Looks like an opening scene from a '70s porn film, especially the last shot.

Details on where you plan on traveling to draw inspo/ideas for this new piece? I thought you said something along those lines somewhere.

Good friend of mine wanted to see the Time jacket in person and she looks absolutely 10/10 with it, will definitely take pictures next time I let her wear it.

No and no - but don't worry we'll get in contact when it does to make sure the info you gave us is still correct and confirm sizing.

I think the corozo buttons will work better on the jacket in my opinion at least, I'm definitely putting those on the jacket once they arrive.

The jacket's been seeing a lot of wear downtown at farmers markets and a few vintage shops. Lots of compliments.

It's just nice for a refresh. They were always going to be this and the SMART buttons would be an upgrade but we've given them as gifts for preordering. The Time Jackets have been really good for us - get people asking every day about them! More upgrades coming when we have them nailed down. @heckawheel suggested a good one actually.

Drunkenly back from an event where people really knew us and excitedly told us about this:

A very nice chap had a go at me for not sending out enough mail outs. Loved it.

Hey guys I'm from India,where the mill arvind is from,we have huge variety of denim fabrics here but we can't get our hands on them as they r been pre booked buy big brands n export houses n been exported,the denim culture in India is very different when compared internationally. People in India love Lycra stretch denims they feel very comfortable in it ,,,they follow brands blindly n above that they r very price conscious ,n like ready wash denims like jack n jones , wrangler ,pepe jeans. I really wanna connect with the creame of people in India who understand jeans as what they originally are , introduce them to the raw denim , selvedge denim , japnese denims , I want to know from where n how can I import the denims from japan or china n how to understand the good quality denims I'm even ready to travel to japan. See the denim culture n understand it or do a professional course in denim designing , like the Newley opened jeanschool in Amsterdam , but it's too far for me to travel n too mch expensive , hope u guys could help spreading the denim culture n create new markets

I get annoyed when factories, mills or anyone along the line leaves me in the dark when I have paid good money for something so I'm just writing a note as an update. I'll email a message to 0 jean orders in the next few days too.

The Jeans are awaiting their turn in the factory at present. There's no problem -- we're just waiting our turn and the moment we have an update you'll get one too. We believe they will be sewn up next week and we'll package and send them as soon as is possible.

We're really happy with everything.

We have a facebook. I didn't want one but Facebook made one so we have to use it because people kept liking some terrible fake STORY mfg. page

facebook.com/storymfg

Production has started on the jeans and there's lots of cool stuff. Check out the instagram if you want to stay up to date. Don't really like the way I'm the biggest poster on this thread so I'm going to keep it to a minumum/just answer q's from here on in.

Peace!

I know what I said up there ^ but I have reconsidered.

I was on a forum on reddit earlier and they did a thing where a user submitted what they wore for a few days. I misunderstood and thought it was a submission thing and threw this together. Seems a shame to waste it so here is a snapshot of 3 days from our trip in India:

It's really rough but I like it because you can kinda feel the difference in places.

Also @-cameron -- the jeans being constructed on IG are yours! They were working on them when KT went up.

Any other pictures of the long scarf being worn (to get an idea on the size)? Transparent at all or are they a decent weight? Or the honor scarf being worn in any other ways? Really like both of them. The cynotype printing might be cool on them, just a thought.

There's a chap on IG @jammystb that has one but there are sizes on the site. There's actually one one left though!

They're quite open (they're hand spun and loomed) and we have a few more Honour scarf colours to put up probably next weekend (pink, yellow and a tonal green/grey).

The cyanotype printing was a one-time deal with Insley and Nash but the world is full of other cool ways to print!
