Thread aside, tailors usually don't have the same equipment as the manufacturer either. I took in some RMC khakis and they did a really good job, felled the seams consistently, etc... But it's lockstitched instead of chainstitched (technically better, but the inconsistency, unknowable to any but me or someone doing a careful inspection, still chafes).
Think it, be it.

That is a lovely pair @el padre . Living up to their name with the vintage fade. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, I'm very happy with them. I've been washing and sometimes tumble drying them a fair bit. No idea if that helps but it doesn't seem to have done much harm.

Agitation and abrasion are key to indigo loss. Washing and tumble drying provide that for sure, but you don’t get the honeycombs, whispers and stacks without wearing them too. Good work.

guys, what is the difference between this 18oz vintage style and the older 18oz?

@miscstuf

Apart from being indigo denim and roughly the same weight they are as different as 21oz and UHR, designed and woven with different concepts, fading patterns in mind.

The og 18oz has a crunchy feel when new, it is quite dense and doesn’t breathe much, and will shrink like raw. It’s a modern, Japanese style denim that gives quite high contrast fades.

The new vintage style 18oz is fully sanforised, has a looser weave, so breathes better and is designed to fade with vertical fadings like 70’s denim did.

Thank you @neph93
Very detail

As I’m always impressed by the vintage fade, sound like these should be my next pair
