Took some shots of my 15th Anniversary Warehouse 1001XX, and figured they'd be a good way to start a thread devoted to one of my favorite brands.

A quick fit picture of my new Warehouse 700s.  A little bigger than I'd like in the thigh, but not too bad.

mentioned a couple of days back that i picked up a duck digger shirt. i remember first seeing it in a copy of lightning magazine's denim work style and thought to myself "i want that!". might not be everyone's cup of tea but i knew i had to get it when i first saw it. turns out that i managed to find one in my size on sale (last piece) so that was cherry on top of the cake.


don't have too much experience with workshirts as i tend to try to control my spending when it comes to shirts and this is the first warehouse shirt i own. i have/had some other nice shirts from Buzz Rickson, K&TH, John Bull, Sugar Cane etc but i think this one is one of my favourites (not saying this because it's new) because the sleeves are the perfect length since some of the other shirts i won tend to have some really long sleeves. also love the detailing on these.









here is some minor chainstitch run-off which is not uncommon in workshirts but what i liked was the run-off on the left was on the front panel of the shirt (grey chambray) and the run-off on the right was at the back panel of the shirt (blue chambray), which tells a lot about how the shirt was sewed and constructed.







there you see the left pocket (which is not symmetrical to the right one in size and design). initially i thought all the stitching was tacked down (which actually doesn't make sense) but then i realised that they incorporated the stitching to allow for a pen which is brilliant.




love the double felled chainstitch on both sides, located on the underside of the placket of the shirt. contrast white stitching is a nice touch certainly.




here is my favourite part of the shirt. what you think looks like a normal collar...




actually reveals a hidden button down collar. very cool as i've never seen anything like this or recall anything that was made like this. the blank selvage was a really nice and subtle touch. definitely a very interesting piece because of this.




the normal underside of the shirt sleeve inseam.



a turnover reveals more double felled chainstitch inside. very nice.



sorry for the long review about a shirt which isn't exactly current but i haven't seen anything like this before and thought it would be interesting to share and also keep the warehouse thread more alive. first shirt from warehouse and definitely won't be the last. will love to see more of their shirts in future because i love the attention they put into their products. very easy to overlook but tells a million things when you see little details like that. will definitely be keeping an eye out for warehouse products in near future.

Couple pictures of my girlfriend and I dancing at the historic Rainbow Gardens at Waldameer Park in Erie PA a month or so ago.  You can't tell, but it was brutally hot and muggy (and that old hall doesn't even have fans, let alone AC) and by the end of the night everyone was soaked.  Photo quality isn't the greatest, but it's one of the few of me wearing my Warehouse #700s.

Judging by those pics from the dance, I'd say those 700s look great on you. Love the shape and fit.

why aren't there more pictures of you wearing them?

^The key to keeping expenses down in Sweden is to never eat in a restaurant with waiter service.  Find the places where you can order at a counter and they bring the food to you.  These are quite cheap and excellent.  Or have a picnic.  Västerbotten cheese is excellent, by the way.  We had it for every meal for a week and we still like it.

Great picture of Nonriveted and great photos in the Denim Travels thread.

If anyone had been eyeing the Heller's Cafe/Warehouse Checked Jacket that Non-Riveted had written about it's available at MrMuddandMisterGold with a 20% discount. I'm not sure if that can be used on the already discounted price of EUR 200. Only size 40 left.

http://www.mrmuddandmrgold.com/en/brands/warehouse/warehouse-hc-checked-coat.html

The discount code is: "We are offering you a discount code!! Please use "summer discount" at the checkout for a 20% off on your order!"

Doc, pockets are American (plain).  

TS, machine wash in Whirlpool front loader. 1001XX's washes were regular on cold or warm with Tide High Energy, then hung to dry.  700s were one wash, but I washed them when I got them on regular warm to make sure all the shrinkage was gone.  Most recent wash was delicate cold and then hung to dry.

Hey everybody!
 
Just wanted to ask about sizing of that Warehouse checked coat as I´ve noticed that some members have one.. Are sies regular, bigger or smaller than usual?  I´m usually between medium and large so would size 40 sound right?
 
Thanks!

Warehouse really makes some of the best repros I've seen around.


Posted By: Maynard Fried-San
Date Posted: 05 Feb 2013 at 9:48am
They look very good Andy, where did you get them?

I had a pair of the Japanese Bluebell 11MWs but had to send them back as they were too tight on the arse and thighs as the waist was oversized. What's the fit on those like?

Thanks Maynard. I got them off of an auction on Yahoo Japan. The fit is very nice -- they have wide/full legs. It is what I imagine your average pair of jeans from the late '40s fit like. I'll try to post some fit pics when I get a chance.


Posted By: Maynard Fried-San
Date Posted: 05 Feb 2013 at 10:10am
Cheers Andy,

Any idea when they were made?

Here's a link to a discussion on them and a pictorial comparison with Warehouse and Sugar Cane repros and the original 1947MW prototype model:

I can't get the link to work on my iPhone, but here's the URL:

Posted By: Andy
Date Posted: 05 Feb 2013 at 10:21am
Thanks for the link. The photos actually make them appear much slimmer in cut, but I think it might be due to the length on the pair. The jeans also have a very high rise.

They might have been made in early 2000? No doubt before Levi's started cracking down on the whole arcuate thing.

Very nice Andy, I think they are from 2003 or 2004.

I appreciate the info, Snake. It's too bad Warehouse isn't making this model anymore. I'd pounce at the chance for another pair of these.


Posted By: setterman
Date Posted: 21 Feb 2013 at 3:10pm
Been trying to take some over all shots of my #700s the past couple months, but haven't been happy with the results.  Anyways, here's the best I can do I right now.  Just over a year old and I'm guessing seven to eight months of actual wear.  They were one wash, I gave 'em another wash before wearing, and they'd had washes in early July and early October.  Getting smelly and going to get cleaned again in the next couple weeks.  Darker than they appear in the photos, and more contrasty.  Don't know why imageshack rotates my pictures....



Another picture from last night that shows the true color better, but still isn't as nice as my eye saw and I was hoping to capture.

Looking good Setterman. And I totally understand about the photos. I have so many poor-quality photo experiences, which is why I hardly post any recently. You either get poor light (flat light) or super-sunny/over exposure. Seemed easier with a mechanical camera - the older 35mm stuff, or is that just me?

yeah, other than the lot # and pocket bags, it appears to be the same pattern as the 700.  Appears to be the same 1000XX denim used in the 660,700, and 800.  $230 price is nice too!    

Here's a couple pix of my 700 before I gave them a wash last week.  Tough to beat the 1000XX denim, and the 700 or 800 for a straight up, no gimmicks, vintage style jean.

Excellent fit. That's a model that seems to have been ignored ( in the US at least). I look forward to seeing them worn in.

I like the fading on those. Reminds me of SDA, going to a softer blue rather than straight to white (which is what my 700s are kinda doing).

Don't know if you saw the link I posted in the Lee thread aho. A late 40s 101Z is on the way. Contacted BiG and I should have a pair next week. I hope the 36 works, because the 34 looked too small.

setterman, I have to say I'm jealous! I've been fiending for a pair of WHxLee for a while and the WWII and the latest 40's pair are exactly what I've been wanting. The only thing that kills me is the higher price point...Looking forward to your updates on them though!

slab2, thanks for the tip, I'm on firefox but figured out it was a cache issue...Cleared it and it worked!

Been wanting a pair of Lees for a while, and after missing the recent offerings (late 50s 101Z, Triple Mark, and WWII Housemark), I wasn't going to miss these ones, especially when they have every feature I'm looking for except for half selvedge.  With the dropping yen, these aren't anywhere near as bad as what the Triple Marks were going for ($400+).

Are all you guys getting your warehouse jeans via blue in green? Has anyone tried ordering from warehouse directly?

i have ordered a couple of times directly. its easy, it just takes them sometimes to answer the mail, otherwise no problem.

keep in mind they remove arcs and tabs if present on the model you wish to purchase straight from them

thanks for the advice guys. 

I'm not really concerned about the arcs and tabs. I just noticed that Blue in Green doesn't have much of a selection in my size.

In part because the yen is very weak compared to the dollar at the moment, (and because I have weak self control haha) I've decided to pick up both the non pareil jacket (I'm not referring to it as a blouse) AND jeans:

http://www.ware-house.co.jp/?page=item&ic=33438

What do you guys think? I am not really clear from their write up what the historical basis for these are. What's the history of the Dry Goods Company..or the history of "Nonpareil"? My searches all lead me back to Heller's Cafe..

Here's a translation of their write up:

A valuable model that seems collaboration brand warehouse to re-product from fabric a private collection is a vintage dealers worldwide Seattle "Larry Makkoin" him "HELLER'S CAFE" from (Heller's Cafe), and denim genesis of It is the introduction of the new classic denim, which is based. Founded in 1851, this pants as a model was a private brand of the oldest dry goods company on the West Coast "nonpareil" = (nonesuch, meaning gem) and is the work wear denim already in the 1860s It is a brand of illusion, which is said to have been manufactured. That Iwakura Tomomi "mission" also visited the Dry Goods Company of San Francisco in 1871. Stitch reinforcement and cutting of pocket unique, is the detail that is required a high level of technology that combines the "decoration" and "functionality". Silhouette is now in regular fit, I'm going to wash one already. It becomes the specification which left wrinkles worn-out in order to give the atmosphere of old.

Yeah, I was oogling the big bux Stevensen Overall Saddle Horn jacket in duck on Self Edge's website, and then realized Heller's had this on stock still! (only real similarity is the pocket shape, but I dig it)

It might be the vague and awkward translation, but I'd love to know the historical reference they're using... or if it's more of a very well done loose interpretation.
