I wanted to let everyone know the type of custom details we can do...Mike though it would be a good idea to show the range of details we can do and post them for everyone to see..This will be a good reference for everyone to see the options you can have at NO additional cost or at a $$$SMALL$$ cost to customize your jeans.
I will post the custom details as we make them so everyone can see and also you may be inspired to come up with you own..
we will always try or best to make what you want....but please keep in mind it take a little bit longer to make these details..

CUSTOM MADE BUTTONS
this was for a customer who wanted a little something special for the buttons...we have a supplier in Japan who makes hand made custom buttons...you have seen them on our M Brandon jacket with the hand carved wood buttons.
so we had these hand made bamboo buttons made for him on his 13.5oz Wabash Jeans...
and at no additional cost...he did have to wait an extra 3 weeks..to get these made

OUR NEW SIGNATURE BUTTONS.
we have had some issues with our current buttons poping off..so me made new buttons.. reminisce of the old WW2 donut style buttons with laurel leaves which bears a meaning of peace.
these are double prong backed and will not come off.
if you currently have the old metal buttons we will replace them for FREE.. we just ask you to help us pay the postage back if you want your buttons replaced.
SOLID BRASS WITH COPPER COATING..solid copper was waaaayyyyy!!! to expensive..sorry..and made in the USA right here in Texas.....
So Mike and I have been looking for someone to make button for us..everyone we have talked to said that the only place to make them is in China and there really is nobody in the USA that makes denim buttons anymore..really!!!!! what has happen to the USA!!!!...well Mike said the hell with that? and if you know Mike...the "mighty" redneck he is..wellll..he is not having that...... "made in China 'BS" his words not mine...HAAAAA...
so we went to our buddy here in Richmond TX that works at an auto body shop..he does the custom color powder coating on the brass buckles we do on our jackets...
well.... we told him our problem....so he went to his boss [ the owner ] this guy is in his 70's..old Texan... and had the auto body shop for the last 50 years in town...old man.....wooden teeth and all..HAAAA
so the old man came out of his hole [office] and looked at both Mike and I..he said..the last time someone asked him that question was back in the 70's...when a couple of "hippies" came in and ask the same question....he asked us if we where a couple of "hippies" that make clothes....wellllll..... Mike and I looked at each other and said..ok..YEA!....we make clothes!!!..we never acknowledge we where "hippies"..HAAAA.
well..... he hooked us up with a machine shop in town that helped us make the buttons..
after a couple a visits..we got to know the old man and he warmed up to us..and now he has nicknames for both Mike and I....after a couple of shot of Bourbon...in his office...
me- "the Asian hippie" and Mike .......Possum on the stump!" (Translation: That's as good as it gets!)
Confession: the only reason I called cianofarmer this weekend was for the inevitable good story. Sure, I said I was calling to confirm an address change on my order, but the truth is, I wanted to get a fresh installment of "Ciano lays out the latest hilarious shit Mike pulled off".
I was not disappointed after my call.

here are inside custom pocket bags we are doing for a customer......he wanted us to take influences from a Gram Parson Nudie Suit and incorporate the concept on the pocket bags.
we used the Singer 114 to do the "hand embroidery" ...the cost on this is around $35USD per embroidery...it took us around 5 hours to do both.
The jeans he ordered was the Japanese 13oz Japanese RB Indigo $95USD Indigo we are going to do a two color thread [ orange and aqua ] for the double needle on the whole jean...I will take pictures once we are done with the jean..as there are other details he requested that we are not finished with yet.
below are pictures of what we used to get the artwork from.
