I couldn't find a "Introduce yourself" thread so I made one for myself. Hope thats okay!
Im a serious vintage hunter in San Diego, I do all kinds of things, But workwear has became a passion of mine more and more over time. I have been looking for a place to share some stuff and learn hopefully everybody Is nice here in this community, I have joined forums in the past for other interests and the folks were sort of snooty. I posted some pics of stuff I have found I think you guys would dig. Its sort of time consuming to post a lot here, theres tons more on IG, Tumblr, FB etc

Maybe a "introduction" thread should be stickied, I used the forums search function and did not find one thread using "introduce" or "introduction" as keywords. and searched a few pages. So, my bad Ermm

Out of the three threads we now have none of them have the word introduction in the thread title which your quite right aint helping the situation.
I don't think there is enough activity in any of them to justify a sticky, they just need combining.

Welcome to the forum man.

I'm Nathan, but you folks may call me Nate. I'm 19, and I've been interested in the denim/workwear look for a few years now. My interest became more serious last summer when I found a couple of chambray shirts that belonged to my great grandfather who passed away in a mining accident in 1947 in the back of my grandparents' coat closet. I was impressed with the quality of these two shirts. I decided that the vintage workwear look was for me, as I feel it reflects a sense of character that modern garments do not. Since that time, I've acquired a few pieces, mostly sugar cane and buzz rickson, and, as are most of you, I am interested in expanding my knowledge of denim and eventually expanding my wardrobe. Looking forward to getting to know you all and learning a lot.

If you're looking for nobility, the Denim Count may be suitable. Remember that it has an 'o' though as the version without has already been taken I think.

Born 1963, which probably makes me "the elder ". Have prefered the working style since the 70s. Back then it was hard. Now with the net its like christmas. I prefer FW for the moment like everbody else but also have Stevenson, Dappers, RS, MF, Blue Blanket, Toughness and some odd things from Well-co, RRL, Kapital. I do of course support Hollows and CircleAbrand. I dont post much, mostly because posting pictures is such a hazzle. It says MrWorkingMan but You can call me Al.

I've been to Inspiration and Denimbruin before even joining Denimbro so I don't think I've actually met anyone here in person? Also, I only have 4 pairs of jeans.... I guess I like shirts and jackets more?

Hi Guys, Im Gareth from North Wales in the UK. Stumbled upon this website recently while searching for denim online so thought id sign up.
 
a bit about me:
 
32, financial planner, married, expecting my first child in Dec, love music and clothes, since turning 30 my tastes in clothing has changed more towards the workwear/outdoor type look (hope that's the right term). Im now more interested in subtle touches and quality made garments like selvedge denim, chore jackets, leather boots etc so I want to learn as much as I can about it all hence why im here.
 
hopefully I can get involved and learn lots from you guys
 
thanks

Hi DenimBros,

Just a quick note to say I really enjoy and am inspired by this forum and the people involved. Thank you!

About me: I grew up in Northern Ca but am now in Los Angeles. I work in advertising and really enjoy looking for vintage gear/clothes etc. I am a big fan of all things small batch, denim, Mister Freedom (I live a couple blocks away from his LA storefront), Omnigod and military inspired clothing.

Very happy to be here!

Thanks,

Jason

Hey Bros, I'm Jordan. I've been a denimhead since high school (in wore the same 47's I found at a thift store nearly every school day) but only in the last few years did I realize affinity for good jeans and workwear was actually a thing that people gathered around. I live in Portland, Oregon currently working in  speciality coffee and getting my master's degree in theology (a mix of philosophy, history, and religious studies).

been wearing through a pair of Sugar Cane 2014's for the last 10 months. I am really digging the depth of color and the almost green hue graininess that they're producing. I'll post some pics in the Sugar Cane thread if anyone is interested.

Hello.

I've been a denim nut for longer than I care to think, and when a fellow jeans crazy friend mentioned this forum to me recently, he was astonished that I wasn't active on it yet.
So I set this right and here I am.
Live in Berlin, Germany.
My taste is for classical cut, tight fitting jeans, the more ruined, the better.
Fave brands besides the 501s I wore exclusively for many years: PBJ, Sugar Cane, Flat Head, Japan Blue, Iron Heart, Fullcount.
Look forward to new denim clad friends, lots of info and many a temptation on the market pages.

Hey all,

My name is Isaac and I'm from LA, CA. Got my start with raw denim through Rising Sun & Co when they were based in Eagle Rock. Made friends with them (Mike Hodis & Khue) and they even sponsored a band that I managed for a little while. I have a cool brown twill blazer that was a one off prototype that Khue gave me.

I'm a huge fan of denim, I don't have much of a collection of raw denim yet, but I'm eager to get my next pair. Currently breaking in a Naked & Famous left hand twill jacket that I scored on amazon for $72!

Been reading for a while on these forums, figured I would register and introduce myself! Thanks.

Hey y'all, about time I did this...

Long time lurker and some-time poster under a previous moniker but want to make a fresh start and contribute to this forum.

Bit about myself;

I've always disliked the high-street "fashion" peddled out multiple times a year and searched in vain for a long time to find the right clothes that suit me and match my personality. A few years ago I stumbled upon work-wear and the plethora of different types, styles and brands. Slowly I started buying bits from Nippon as a wee, small guy, I thought they'd fit better - which they do!

I'm an naturally consummate researcher and love collecting old photograph books, signs, advertising and "slice of life" photographs from way-back-when. 

I'm a trainee art teacher and illustrator by trade, and as I'm getting increasingly more obsessed by this whole thing I find it bleeding into my work. As a teacher I doubt I'll be posting my fluggly mug on'ere, but I do on occasion post my visage on Insta, which a few of you kind souls follow.

I like the temperament of this forum, and the wealth of knowledge and most importantly the passion you lot have for work-wear and all that entails. I hope to contribute as much as I can.

Mark

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

I doubt it 00, I've taken a year out to reassess what the hell I want to do - a 1/3 life crises of sorts.
I may post a few things soon that are more in keeping with the work-wear vibe, but I warn ye now it may be in a few weeks!

Hope the weather is better on the t'other side mate!

Hello all! 

It's about time that I joined officially. My name is Liz, many know me as "Liz Tailor" from Levi's. I worked for them creating custom jeans for the Lot#1 program. But that is the past, I am now currently working on my own production in Greensboro, NC:  home of Cone Denim, Wrangler, and now Mary James & Co. 
Mary James & Co. will be the next actually handmade garment on the market. 
Stay tuned for more.
