The only book I've got at the moment is The Kapital Denim Friend Book but I want to build out my coffee table collection. I've got the two bandana books coming but don't know what else to get. I know i'm going to buy "Jeans of the Old West" sometime soon. Any other good suggestions? For some reason I've got a hard time spending $25+ for a magazine :(

My offering...



The best one by far is the top one which my wife very kindly had made for me from loads of pics i'd downloaded over the years. Many of them from the Superfuture 'cool distressed denim' thread.

Great stuff Mr. Black Thumbs Up.
Used to have the 'Jeans' and the 'Denim' mooks, but they easily fell apart at the spines - did you experience this?  Maybe mine were badly stored :(
What is the 'Boon Vintage' mag like? I have the 'extra' vol 1 & 4, but wondered what the vintage one had in it?  Years ago (1990?) a friend who used to run a shop in the Kenny market had several of the usual monthly Boon mags - loved them as they were the only pictorial evidence of really early Lee's and Levi's.
Weren't you gonna send me a PDF of the top one?
 
(plus...more pics of your beautifull 'Lambo' on the bikes thread if you dont mind Tongue)
 
..sorry to go on.

I've not found them to fall apart. I treat them very gently though. I'm (she) is working on a way of sharing the PDFs of the book. Currently you have to be logged in with her username to be able to access. There must be a way round it but we've not got there yet. I'll stick up some pics of the mook and also more of my lammy shortly.

Dr heech- sent you a PM with a link to view a pageturner. You can download a PDF of the book or even order yourself a softback/hardback version but obviously you'd need to pay Blurb for those options.

If anyone else wants this link, just let me know

Grow a sack. You wanna play with the big boys you gotta pay like the big boys. Just kidding.   I feel like if you've seen one lightning magazine you've seen them all. I get bored looking at them. If you're gonna get a lightning mag, though, you gotta get the "denim & work style" one. It has a pic of one stylish dude.;)

I have a much easier time buying stuff that is in English.

I bought one Free and Easy, and then have received a few as gifts.  Unless you have a translator program for your phone or something it's just pretty pictures... so yea 25$ seems like a ton to drop on them.

Switch is right about that.  Anytime I'm flipping through it, the wife comes over and says 'Ooh let me see.'  So I have to go to the page and say 'There he is in all his glory'

I think so, but it is the only "proper" denim book that I have.
 
Gives on over view of Levis development over the last 100 years. The pics are a bit small, but useful as an overview.

We have a new book coming out this spring AMERICAN OVERALLS....524 pages of workwear that we have been photographing and researching, workwear ads, research, old photos.....that we have been working on for a year and a half now. The publishers is Mono Workwear.....Mr. Randal worked hard on revising our text and layout improvement, Bandit took amazing photos and shared some of his own old workwear for some of the pages. Russ, my dad coauthored this with me and we both spent the better part of a year pulling together hundreds of ads and articles on old workwear companies for the book. And of course Sansome was a major contributor to the huge Levi section and for sharing his collection of workwear........here are some random images (this is prior to our publisher making changes to it of course so may look a little different later) and sorry for them being unrelated, they are just a sprinkling of pages.
it has 38 chapters ranging from boss of the road to children's overalls......

I got to flip through the preliminary when I stopped in at the Sansome castle.  It's going to blow your mind.  These two books are so far beyond anything else that is out there, it really amazes me.   Nonriveted, it's too bad you weren't in when I was there, it would have been great to meet you.

But let me get this straight, there are two books?  Or is it two translations of the same.
Regardless, will budget for it.

One's that haven't had a mention are 'Jeans des Heros' by GIlles Lhote and Christian Audigier Editions Lincoln 1992
Cloth bound in chambray and great images Ok I don't read French but the pictures tell the story.

And my favourite 'This is a pair of Levi's Jeans' the official history of the Levi's brand
Published by Levi Strauss and co publishing in 1995 the layout is incredible think the same guys did the first catalogue for Levi's vintage, as featured in Mr Randals LVC Catalogs thread. Sample spread attached.

'Blue jeans, Hamlyn 20th Century style' is another in my collection they also did leather jackets and sunglasses in the same series

vente privee is one of those private clearance sale sites, I signed up when the LVC thing was there and there hasn't been a single thing worth clicking on since then.  I wouldn't waste your time.

I hear you- I think part of the problem is- Nonriveted condensed the book down to 320 pages.....down from 520 pages....Most English publishers want a book around 200 pages. 320 pages was her limit- Nonriveted can't trim any more without loosing important information. Im sure it will be put out in English, just might take a little more time. Our next 3 books will be in English.....Get working on your east coast book Conehead!!!!

For interest only really.
This was the first "the cat's out of the bag" vintage collecting information available in the UK, which was the first written in English IIRC.  Not really a book as such, more of a pamphlet with price guides. 
The jeans on the front are the famous (then)oldest pair of unwashed Levis, from 1927 or 1928.  The then owners were offered $25,000 for them but refused, sending out a message to the masses to go up in their lofts and barns looking for old denim.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Looks like it was put out by the guy at Farley Vintage back in the day (1992/3)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
If anybody ever comes across a copy for sale, I would be gratefull if you could let me know !

I do Japanese-English translation. Was at a Clutch party at the end of last year and offered my services, but they seemed rather uninterested. Not sure why. Seems like they are trying to go international, that being much the point of Clutch as a spin off of Lightning. Even the bits that are translated into English are harshly forced. Oh well.......

Son of a Stag (London denim shop) have just produced a newspaper/newsletter thing called 'The Journal'.

The idea is to be published quarterly and to feature articles on the brands they carry.

Issue 1 has not got much editorial content but has some good pics. Small pic of me in there representing the Brotherhood.

Let me know if anyone wants to be sent a copy. If you're in the UK i can probably slip them through my work post. If going further afield i'll need to ask you to cover postage costs.

I picked this one up at the library last week and was really intrigued by the way the CCC shaped the local landscape. As the author states, most everyone around here believes that much of the park was shaped by nature, but it was the CCC that planted most of the trees, dug the lake, and even form today's experiences by the paths they chose to make.

I just borrowed this one from the library today. The photos aren't of local projects, but there's quite a bit of workwear eye-candy.

Great stuff Lefty. Was hoping someone would take the D-33 CCC inspired pants as an invitation to revisit that history.

You're exactly right about how we see "nature" and miss the human labor behind it. Of course, that was often the point. One of the many innovations of FL Olmsted being to hide artifice behind natural veneer.

I was at a conference last year and got introduced to this very interesting project called "The Living New Deal". It traces the many continuing effects of the New Deal on the landscape.

Thanks for the link to Living New Deal, Ishmael.  I looked up my city and found about 10 New Deal projects within walking distance of my house.

Go bears!

[QUOTE=*lefty*] I picked this one up at the library last week and was really intrigued by the way the CCC shaped the local landscape. As the author states, most everyone around here believes that much of the park was shaped by nature, but it was the CCC that planted most of the trees, dug the lake, and even form today's experiences by the paths they chose to make. 


Thanks for posting that lefty. I like the then & now pics too. Any more?

Thanks. Weather permitting, we're in the park a couple of times a week. I'll see if I can come up with a few more then and now shots. 

Ishmael, I've been a WPA works fan for a while, but the d33 really pushed me toward the CCC. The libraries and post offices are nice enough, but the parks are what really get me.

I like the cut of this jacket in the picture.

Can any one ID the maker?

I think you are right. It looks like it has been cut down in length.

The Army was a big part of the CCC, though the government did what it could to assure the public that it wasn't just recruiting kids for something like the many pre-Army youth groups around the world. The Brown Shirts in Germany and the Young Pioneers in the Soviet Union were images to avoid, so the New Dealers pushed this as an education/job/social/economic project that just needed a bit of the discipline and structure that the Army could provide. 

-in other words, I agree, probably an army shirt.

Just received my copy of 'Denim Style'

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Denim-Style-Horst-A-Friedrichs/dp/3791349562

Lots of pics of denim wearers from in and around London. The predominance of crisp new denim rather than worn in items makes it feel somewhat of a sales catalogue/hipster-fest rather than a study of denimheads and their well worn prized possessions. Quite a few people I know/have met in there but some glaring omissions (me Wink )

Worth a look and inexpensive.

^ agreed Mr B, I received my copy last week and overall was disappointed with the 'newness' of the denim in the photos and the ubiquity of Tunisian-made ED Edwin styles (although to be fair you do see a lot of Edwin in London). I would have like some commentary to accompany the photos too. My overriding impression is that it was a missed opportunity and I wouldn't personally recommend the book. I think there are better coffee table options out there. On the plus side, it was nice to see a few familiar faces in there!

I've actually just packaged mine up to be returned to Amazon already. Bought it on Thursday for £17.99 and they're now selling them for £13.99. I know £4 isn't much, but I don't like feeling cheated. Will buy it back tomorrow at the cheaper price :)

As you say- a bit of commentary, story behind what they're wearing etc would have helped massively and made it look less like loads of pretty boys (and the obligatory heavily hand & neck tattoo'd interesting older gents) wearing stuff given to them by a stylist for a magazine photoshoot.

I politely mentioned to Horst via facebook that he should do a follow-up in a couple of years time when the people had actually put some wear in. It got a 'like' :) so you never know...

Out of interest, what better coffee table options do you suggest (assuming i've not already got 'em)

(PS- Your Son of a Stag paper will go out tomorrow)

Anybody own either the "nautical memories" or "outdoor memories" mooks? Are they worth the high price of admission?

Mr Black, Maynard Friedsan,
I agree about the denim style book. 
However, Horst took photo,s of me for probably a future denim book.
Ishmael, can't help you about the book, it must be a bit better for you to spend that money cause you're able to read japanese.
I have stack of magazines etc. and can,t read a thing

I got both of them, not as interesting af the first Workwear books and The Denim/Jeans I think. There are a few of the same photos and drawings from the workwear series. In generel a bit too many drawings for my liking Smile
