Here are some pictures from Gun whilst he was making my jeans.
Other than the full-waist chain-stitch machine, Gun is also getting some other vintage monsters soon!
A thicker shell-serger, button-hole maker, etc… and perhaps a jacket in the works?!?!
I’ve spent quite a bit of time picking out little bits of sugar cane from the weft side of the denim – a couple hundred pieces actually:
And here is my post-soak fit.
A little tighter than my usual fit on jeans, but hopefully these will stretch out as easily as it’s 40_00 siblings.
One last random bit – the original catalogue listing for the sc40500 (my own scan, btw).
You’ll notice that Gun’s slim-straight cut is a much more modern fit than Sugar Cane’s version.
The Sugar Cane version is also single-stitch felled throughout (similar to the Oni 1001-HM.)
