Dr. Bronner’s

Just sharing an interesting article about an interesting brand. Customers may have noticed we like to give out a small sample of Dr. Bronner’s soap with every pair sold. It may not be specialised denim soap but there is something to be said about their philosophy. For us Dr. Bronner’s reflects raw denim at more rustic and organic times. Just like Dr. Bronner’s, raw denim strikes that delicate balance between aesthetics and a general ‘don’t give a fuck’ attitude. They have a very particular style that has neither changed much nor caved to any modern pressures. So next time you pick up a pair of jeans from us take a good look at the bottle, I’m sure you’ll be a little amused.

Hall of Fade competition winner announced!

Just a quick post to let you all know our Hall of Fade competition winner has been announced. You can read all about it here. Congratulations to DRINKX14 for his awesome Indigoskin submission. It is only fitting he wins another pair to carefully destroy so this pair can be put away as a trophy!

Also honorable mentions go out to both Prachya’s Imperials and Toshi’s Ande Whalls who will both be receiving discount codes for the store. All three were incredibly hard to pick apart but as Michael from Hall of Fade said, there could only be one!

Ghetto leathers

While we’re not endorsing denim as a leather replacement in any extreme sport you’re undertaking, check out the damage our friend has done to his pair of UB201 with this gratuitous ass shot.

This is the calibre we’re expecting of the submissions to our Hall of Fade competition (John @ Without Wash high contrast 101’s are also a good example)! Meticulously crafted through over a years worth of longboarding slides and falls. A nicely aged pair of jeans definitely beats rashes up and down our buddy’s shapely posterior. If you’re looking for a cheap pair of jeans without completely sacrificing ruggedness our $85 Unbranded are definitely worth the investment. Peep it out – The Unbranded Brand

Alive and Kicking

After an extended period of being caught up in other things, we have finally gotten around to updating our website and addressing prior issues with checkout and payment.

We have also added the option to shop from our Facebook page!

In more exciting news, we are hosting a competition on Hall of Fade between 01/01/2012 and 01/02/2012. What better way to start the new year than by winning yourself a free pair of jeans? Stay posted for the competition details…

Long overdue!

It’s been a while!

I’ll start off by sharing a cool fit pic. Cecil sent this shot in about a month ago while he was down in Melbourne. Rocking a fresh pair of Indigoskin Slim Tights, his photographer girlfriend Alice snapped the photo while strolling through one of Melbourne’s famed alleyways. Thanks guys!

Be sure to check out Alice’s website/portfolio while you’re at it – www.heshiyun.com

Now back to business. Due to some technical difficulties you may have noticed for the past week our main site has been down. We’re working on getting that back up as soon our hosting company sorts it out. In the meantime please direct any enquiries to info@inseam.com.au. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Thankfully we have some good news as well. We will receive our shipment of Iron Heart Devil’s Fit this week and if all goes well, up for sale within the next. This is super exciting as the IH-666 are, in my opinion one of the more interesting cuts offered by IH in terms of both fabric and fit. A mix of modern and classic coupled with the trademark IH ruggedness. This is definitely one to look out for.

Here is a teaser of what’s to come. In both [raw] and [black overdyed] washes respectively.

News roll issues

We’ve been hearing complaints of our news roll having small accessibility issues. This is our fault and will be cleared up soon. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on the main site – please use this link inseamstore.wordpress.com

Updates have been a bit slower lately but IH666 in both raw and OD washes are dropping soon so stay tuned.

More fit pics are also coming but in the meantime if you’ve bought a pair from us and would like us to showcase its progress we’d be more than happy to oblige! Just send it over to info@inseam.com.au

Cheers!

Indigoskin Slim Tight – Day 3

Day 3 – June 12th, 2011

Just a quick update. Having only worn these for a few hours at a time for the past few days they have stretched a surprising amount. Enough for slight sagging but still rigid enough to make some awkward stacks. The taper is not as severe as something I’d usually wear so that’s taking a little getting used to.  Mobility isn’t an issue. Through the leg it’s still tight but not restrictive. I could probably still roundhouse kick a mugger if need be.

Hypothetical acrobatics aside, nothing interesting to report over the past few days. If Sydney keeps this inconsideration up, updates will be sloooow. It really was an effort to brave the harsh weather for this photo but what can I say, fortune favours the bold! Never fear though, since this is Australia I’ll be probably be getting into a turf war with a kangaroo sooner or later. I’m pretty much just counting on that for some fascinating fades at this rate.
