LOL WUT? Never seen this wash before (old skool dojos)...help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I found these lovely mystery dojos, not having the slightest idea what the wash may be (linked, bc the pics are kinda big)...

from the seller's pictures, I figured they might be a poorly photographed Antarctica (but still--the orange stitching? Antarctica and Mykonos both have blue!) but having them in my hands now, they are obviously not the same. The denim on these is much lighter weight (I have ANT dojos to compare them to directly, btw), and the cut number is the one shared with the old NYD (-019U) and not ANT (-082U). These also have a dirtier undertone and, of course, the orange pocket stitching--and my ANT dojos don't have the obvious fading near the hems (it looks a bit like the fading the old Glacier wash had). The cut number is close (101910, and my ANT dojos are 102-something) but of course that means nothing. I am completely stumped--tried to search for this and neighboring cut numbers, and all I got were some NYD dojos from a slightly earlier cut. These seem to run slightly tight in the waist (possibly even tts) but slightly generous in the hips.

 

Interestingly, I have found a couple items labeled Antarctica with -019U suffixes, namely these NWT trousers (listing has ended but pics are still up) http://www.ebay.com/itm/120808533030?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 and, by extension, the bomber jacket whose wash I was wondering about awhile ago ( http://www.denimblog.com/c/t/191437/old-skool-jacket-wash-halp-plz ). But that Ebayer's NWT pants don't have the super-obvious hem fading or dirty undertone, either (and the denim on these dojos is still lighter-weight than that of the bomber jacket). So I am totally clueless...

 

Any insights? :)

I'm as clueless as you are Nicole! This is really a very old wash imo ;-)

So I checked with csirip (via his Ebay ID--I'd consulted him on a couple other pairs before) and he said he'd definitely seen these before but wasn't completely sure--his best guess was Navajo wash. Sounds good to me! I also floated them by another Ebayer (I was watching one of her items) who used to work for 7FAM and she said that the -###U suffix on the style numbers refers to the fabric blend or where it was sourced from, which explains why NYD, ANT and this wash would all end in -019U.

 

I'll definitely keep you guys posted if I find out anything else! :)
