I have been thinking to put up this thread for quite sometime already, but since i saw one started on Sufu i thought might as well post there, but there are mynudies members who dont actually visit sufu or a member there, so get your cameras out, put the macro mode on and go snap happy with all the hardwares on jeans, bags, wallets, horse saddles and the likes, the older and rustier, the better it is..i know im not the only one into all this little details that makes a garment a "little" bit different and special from others and i know we have lotsa macro threads in this forum..so here should be strictly
"Buttons,Zippers,Buckles, Rivets & the likes"..Feel free to contribute!

I'll start off with some pictures of mine, and hope not only mine will be posted here :oops:

Those are some nice zoomed in shots. You can see the little details like the typeface and the intricate designs. I also like how you can see the denim just starting to fade from the stress of wearing.

Thanks N5.
Found those Ling jeans in a thrift store in my home town some 7 years ago. They were deadstock.
Haven't been able to find any info on them.
What you thought was the pocket bag is actually the lining.
They're fully lined with that fabric!:-o

No offence, but isn't that a hardware thread?

that was the intention...for denim close-ups we have the "Traintracks"-thread.
leather patches..well...where do they belong or do we want to open up a thread for it too?

Thats some great shots of the M39 hardware.

I just got 2 in myself (friend wanted one), and its got some fantastic details.

To be honest I wanted/still want a Swiss Alpine rucksack, but at the price, the Swedish pack is very nice. Your fit pics convinced me that the pack was less teardrop shaped than I had originally thought, which I was quite pleased about (incidentally, I had already bought the packs, just shows you how low the price was)

Thanks Rungo!, they are indeed cheap and fantastic!, i agree that Swiss "Salt & Pepper" rucks are amazing, and theyre on my want list since ever!, wish theyre bit cheaper, but some do pop up on ebay for cheap, also if ure interested in rucks, Norwegian rucks are pretty cool as well, the construction is really neat too..and the best part, they're cheap!..that said id probably get them soon :-)

The Norwegian ones are pretty neat as well, although I'm not sure quite what I would use it for, but the construction is very interesting, almost like a rucksack put onto the back of a packboard.

I was thinking more like this pack. http://theglengarrysportingclub.blogspot.com/2009/10/inspired-goods-swiss-army-rucksack-ca.html

But the one you posted still exemplifies the difference - I only paid £13 for my Swedish pack, including shipping. For less than $20, I honestly don't think I could ask for more.

8th June 2010, 20:27
Thanks for the link Benzak, like rungo mentioned, the price is still abit high compared to Swedish and Norwegian packs, i got mine for £10. cheap as..that said, if i have the cash, id def getting that one u posted, its an earlier made rucks and hard to find..esp in that condition.

@rungo ive developed so much love for rucks that i really want to get them all..:oops: hope i can get one more soon..

sorry to go off topic again, but the one in the link rungo posted looks a lot like mine:

http://i49.tinypic.com/30jquxe.jpg

unfortunately the backstraps had already been replaced when I got em, and I recently ripped off the top leather handle..

N5, do you know how to date these?

-nudiefive-
9th June 2010, 12:38
Those are indeed a Swiss Rucksack, im cant remember the details to check on the Swiss ones, but normally theres a Manufacturer's stamp in a circular shape with Year of production in the middle with 2 digits..stamped onto the leather. might be small but usually they will be there, unless the leather components have been replaced..

Benzak
9th June 2010, 12:56
the digits say 58.. that's over 50 years old! never realised it.. :mrgreen:

This thread rules!
I personally prefer rivets with no engraving on it but that's only my opinion...

I'll upload some photos of my jeans's hardware as soon as I get a decent camera (pics with the iPhone don't look very good)


BTW @nudiefive that button from stronghold's is great!!!

Cheers!
