Thanks to my lovely wife, I have a nice new pair of chinos here. Inexperienced with raw chino, should I soak right off or is it a bit more forgiving than denim and the constructional thread?

There’s only one way to find out for sure…
Anyway, no reason not to soak them IMO, they will fit better…

What are they BTW?

Hey guys, I have no idea if there's any appropriate thread to ask this question but.

I'm planning a short trip to Okayama for the end of the year. We will be driving from Tokyo to Osaka and will find some time to go to Okayama after we arrive in Osaka. I wanted to visit the Kuroki Mill but my Japanese friend called them and was told that they don't allow visitors as the looms are too loud and that the mill may not be safe for visitors.

Have any of you guys visited any of the mills in Okayama before? If you have, could you share some info about them with me? I would really appreciate it!

Giles, does the loom that produces the Iron Heart denim allow visitors? It would be really great if I could see the looms that produce my favourite denim!

Thanks guys!

They don't I am afraid.  In the main they are tiny little operations in the middle of no where with no one there who speaks English.  And yes, they are noisy and dangerous.....Sorry....

Ah I see... No problem, thanks Giles!
But do you know of any good places to visit in Okayama?

G, any plans for a new shell cordovan card holder? In the alternative, does the existing one ever (or will it ever) come in  ox blood?

It came in black & ox-blood or ox-blood & black, but never in 100% ox-blood I am afraid.....

Do you think tan suede boots like these would work with a black leather jacket, a brown leather jacket, both or neither?

I would say brown but not the black. Would probably work well with burgundy leather too...
