Its like in between, so a small Raglan fits like a shirt between small/medium.


Glad you guys made it out here, kariido and Fulaani smokeyface


It's a pleasure to be here. Honestly, I've looked around at the threads showcasing offerings from various other makers and suffice to say, Triumvir is head and shoulders above all else.

Keep up the great work. You guys at Triumvir have a brilliant future in front of you; no doubt about that.

Ok, i am going to go back to the jeans comment because i wanted to fully cover everything that was said for anybody who may have more questions or still unsure of what the hell people are saying.

Raw jeans are to be worn however one feels like it, if you want to wear them raw, wear them, if you want to wash them and wear them softer, do it; no one is stopping you. But the general reason that people buy raw jeans is because they either want to wear them until they are contoured to their body or because they like the crisp look of the jeans. Jeans also vary in weight but the Triumvir jeans are 13 oz which isnt that heavy, but it will still fade well over time and has plenty of features that will keep you happy if you are not looking to wearing the same jean everyday. As far as when one is looking to fade their jeans, wearing on a minimum 4 days a week basis is a good way for someone who doesnt want to wear the same pair every day. So rotating like Lerche mentioned is a good idea. As for hanging or not hanging, i believe that it can be argued either way, one can hang their jeans and it will air out if the buttons/zipper is un-done, or you can leave them out. Air restriction is the biggest enemy to not getting the smell out, but that is easily solved by either flipping inside out (not recommended unless they really smell) or just opening the buttons like i mentioned before.

When wearing, certain characteristics may take place (previously mentioned were whiskering and honeycombs along with stacking or stacks.)
Whiskering happens with mostly heavier denim that when worn, the dyed warp of the jean gets its cotton agitated until cotton fibers tend to stand out and make the jean look stubblier, this effect is whiskering and while known more-so to happen in the front of your jeans can also be seen on the back side of your denim. Honeycombs are what happen due to walking, running, climbing and any other activity you can think of and are located at the back of your knees. After a certain amount of wears, your jeans will tend to have creases on the back of your knees that will be present after you wear them and even remain when you take off your jeans, these are the honeycombs and often they will be nicely faded when you do decide to wash your jeans. Stacking takes place when the length of your jeans are too long and your pant legs bunch up at the top of your shoes. the effect that is produced looks similar to a layering effect and can be either a positive thing or a negative thing depending on your own opinion.

Anyways, i really wanted to be a help to anyone and all that were still interested in this. If there are any more questions, i will try to address them in future posts. Happy new years everyone and Victory or Death.

Yeah it is, but I believe they spiced it up with something different on them. I'm not 100% sure.

The original was all black except for the Death Squad patch; the remake has some (white) contrast.

Black jeans tend to have a particular smell that is due to the dye that was used man, you are going to have to wear them until you transfer your own smell into them and let the smell leave. If you have the indigo version, it is basically the same thing, although it is not as pronounced as it is in the black version of the jean. I recommend wearing them hard outdoors so as to get the smell off and airing them out while breaking them in. but yea man, that smell wont go anywhere alone, you are going to have to wear them out, or if you cannot stand it, wash them or soak them. Soaking would take less dye out of the jean, but it will be less thorough. Let us know what you choose to do and hope this helped. Peace!

Man, the Shadaloo denim looks sexy.

Peek a Boo! What is this? blinkyeyes



Word on the street is that there will be a White/ Black and a Red/ Black color way. AND... there will be some matching tees &)&)&)
So if you get caught in a swirly (look it up kids) or you just like walking on your hands, you still got your swagger upside down!
