Out of all the shops that sell Nudies would the Nudie store be the bet place to go for price?
all the same price mate.
Cool cool, What do you guys think of the Lee and Me store? anyone visited it? Looks like they have some cool stuff from the website
^ oipolloi.com for australian buyers- you'll get a reasonable range for about $100AUD less than you'll get here, shipping included. i just got a grim tim for about $140, delivered within 4 days- the pound is weak as piss right now. stocks may be low, the range isn't superextensive and you can only buy in even sizes, but if that fits, you're laughing
Was in Fat last week and the Nudies were like 215, if everywhere else is 240-250 now might be cheapest at Fat?
guess they haven't put the price up yet
btw joe the jackets should be in fat yesterday (wednesday) so check it out
Hey can any of you guys recommend a store which sells some nice leather belts possibly brown one. Thanks!
^^ If I'm not too late Stand, I walked briefly past the glue store in parramatta a few days ago and I saw some nice brown belts that caught my eye for a second I think there were some diesel ones, if I can recall, which looked pretty nice.
Folks, just wondering about the Supply store in Sydney. Couldn't be bothered to go there myself with exams and everything on at the moment, would anyone know whether they have any Supreme backpacks for sale?
I want to taper my RRDS, does anyone have idea how much will that be? BTW Im in Chatswood, any good tailors nearby?
not really sure on either fronts, but i wouldn't recommend doing it either way, to be honest. dodgy tapering's a great way to kill your jeans, i'd recommend just getting something else in the style you wanted, if the rr fit's not to your liking...
actually both Cameland and Cabl3 have tapered their RRDS with pretty good results.
Just find someone who you know you can trust and definitely understands what you want. Don't be afraid to turn a tailor down based on anything you see or hear.
just my opinion, i've flirted with home tapering myself from time to time and always regretted it. i still stand by my opinion, although obviously you can get good results from the right tailor (i'm thinking of the selfedge collabs now)
that might be why
let me clarify, by home tapering, i mean just getting it done generally, not doing it myself. like i told you once before luda, it's better to love the cut you've got and buy something different instead if you want a different fit- tapering and alteration is the denim equivalent of grotesque boob-jobs
Chainstitching in Sydney
Need to get my jeans hemmed and was wondering if anyone cud recommend a place in Sydney that does chainstitching. Many thanks!
someone mentioned on another thread that there is a union special machine in adelaide that can do it, and it's pretty much the only one in the country, so it won't be happening in sydney, i'm afraid. i'll try and find the thread where i saw it and post a link back here, but i can't remember which thread it was so it may take a while...
I think this is what you were talking about.
I haven't read this thread but I just wanna say I got back from Sydney on Monday and damn, that place is so different to Melbourne, I couldn't believe it. IT WAS SICK THOUGH. LOVED IT
well to contribute, tapering RRDS's is quite easy. Just tell them to do it from the inseam (where the flare actually occurs" and it should be good, Just specify the hem width you want and they should be able to sort it out.
The problem with the 56300 chainstitcher (that rhd has) is that it's tough going to hem jeans with a flatbed. You have to work on the jeans inside out and roll the hem by hand (which is a real b#tch with raw denim and/or anything over 14oz). You need a downturn hemming attachment:
this is off a 63900 - which is not a chainstitcher unfortunately, and you can only do that with a cylinder bed machine like this one:
This machine is not available anywhere (and I've looked everywhere). Most cylinder bed machines are either hat or shirt cuff specific or shoe repair machines, which is unsuitable for jeans. No, the only machine you can use for truly authentic hemming is the 43200G. Union Special replaced the 43200 with the lockstitch 63900 (a machine you can get just about anywhere, including here in Australia) and it comes with that downturn hem attachment. But to get a chainstitched hem...
