Back in 1872, I passed on an opportunity from a friend of mine, Jacob Davis, to help him apply for a patent for strengthening waist overalls at stress points with metal 'rivets'. Oh well...

I wouldn't worry too much. They'll never catch on.

1.  Not buying a pair of custom Roys for $175
2.  Mister Freedom Ranch Blouse in Size 36 (Indigo Denim)
3.  Mister Freedom Veste Ouvrier in Size 92 (Small) when it first came out.  I just got a 97 and soaked it last night, it fits, but is somewhat roomy on me.  I do love it though, its a great piece.  I bought it for myself as a Birthday present. 

I also wish I would have bought some of my beloved items in bigger sizes.  Instead of 31's, got 32's, instead of smalls got mediums.  But that is life. 
Sell me your Mister Freedom stuff. :)

I definitely have regrets.

Tops is not learning Japanese so that I could list my own auctions on ebay.jp instead of Japanese buyers scooping up my stuff and selling it for triple there. I am so fed up with it that I am on hiatus from selling to Japanese bidders on ebay in 2013

Definitely not getting in on ROYxCone at the beginning so that I could have participated in the entire contest. As well as not jumping on the chance for the OG pair.

Many items over the years, but I knew little of the monetary value for most of it at the time.

Not taking high school more serious
Not accepting scholarship to Art school
Cutting my beard... ever
saying I love you
wait what?

Sorry, got off track

Wish I had bought:
Horse hide biker jacket that fit perfectly for $30.
1950 pea coat in awesome condition with the name of the sailor embroidered in the lining and two tickets to a L.A. Rams game from 1957 in the pocket. Didn't have the $50.

Most of the time I don't have a problem letting things go. I like leaving things for the next guy.
I regret buying my ROY x Cone sized the way Roy suggested. I should have sized down. Oh well.

My regret , walking by thrift store 1:00 am in Portland Oregon seeing pile of clothes so went over to check out there was a pair of 201 levis duck jeans like new but someone had written pornographic shit all over them esp fly area with marking pen. this was 30 years ago and couldn't make out what they really were Id seen them in movies ,made for movie?,reproduction from 1960s no never really saw them at that time. really not type of thing could bring home so just left them. Later thrift store had outdoor sale with 7 food pile of clothing anything for $.75 and there were those levis could I get them for buttons not worth it for label as it was cloth not leather,hm couldn't take to counter to buy as it was Christian thrift store with little old lady's so second time passed them up. As this was before internet or books on denim just let it go. Well eventually figure out they were found in local house in trunk or box and were 1915 duck 201s never washed. Today they know how to remove ink and would have been worth a mint. Kick myself every time I think about it esp after seeing the Levi VTG line and seeing what they really were.

Just been out-sniped on a very affordable Eastman A2 on Ebay. Just needed new cuffs.

Did any of you UK bro's happen to win this?

Never seen any original Levi's duck 201's before - 1915!? Never washed? Wow.
 
What else was in that pile of clothes I wonder?  Never found any clothing that old - it just doesn't happen here in the UK unfortunately.
