I have a Hario Mini Mill which I like and it gets the job done, but I'm really looking for something electric. If you're doing french press, it doesnt take much time to grind beans but if you're doing anything finer than that it probably takes me 5 minutes to grind 45-50g of beans which just isn't what I wanna do right after I wake up. I've heard good things about the Hario Skerton as well.

For electric grinders, I've heard that the Baratza Encore is the best bang for your buck. Also, I would get an adjustable temperature kettle (people perfer goosenecks but I just have a regular one) and a kitchen scale! The scale is super useful for cooking in general and I think they're good to have, especially for coffee.

Also, I have a Chemex and love it. I don't think I could live without it.

Oh, a dedicated pouring kettle is crucial for any pourover brewing methods. The gooseneck design allows for far more granularity and precision in the flow rate and position of water flow. The faster the extraction rate, like a V60 pourover, the more important the control over those variables becomes.

I have this Bonavita. It's probably the single best purchase I've made for my coffee brewing adventures for a few reasons. First, it's got that gooseneck spout I mentioned. Second, it has a variable temperature sensor and control, which removes the guesswork from water temperature. The hold function is great, too, since I can put water in and set it to 200, hop in the shower, and it will hold the temperature at 200 until I pour it. Super useful. Lastly, it heats water faster than any other method I have. Faster than stovetop, faster than microwaving. It's great. Massdrop has been doing runs on them occasionally for ~$78, so you could keep your eye on that.

I got the Bonavita Gooseneck Kettle. True, it is the single most expensive single purchase so far for my coffee but it has made coffee making a ton easier. Getting water to 205 degrees (or whatever you prefer) without any hiccups and being able to pour it without worrying about splashes, over-pouring or anything else has made it one of my favorite purchases so far. It just adds a ton of control to your coffee-making, which is super beneficial when there are so many variables in it already.

I have the grinder one step up, the Virtuoso, and I still agree that the Encore is a better "bang for your buck." I absolutely love mine and don't regret it at all though. When I do eventually get into home espresso (in a few years) there's a good chance I'll go with Baratza again since they're releasing a dedicated home espresso grinder this year.

A gooseneck is super useful for pourovers but honestly kind of a pain for anything else because of what makes it so useful, the slow pour rate. It's absolutely necessary for a v60, for example.

I have the variable temp bonavita gooseneck that's useful for tea, but I'm definitely eyeing a Stagg kettle, and I'm probably going to buy my sister a non-variable temp model soon now that I've gotten her and her husband into pour-overs.

I've used this dye from Amazon before. Works really well!

It's pretty simple. My advice would be to make sure you follow the instructions, and do your dying outside or in a very well ventilated area. Also try doing variations of dyes, like duration of time in the vat and number of dips (dying it, then taking the item out to oxidize, then dying it again). You'll get a different product from different dying methods so just try things out to see what you like!

u/IngoVier · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Here is the dye I used:

And if you are interested this is a great walkthrough I used as inspiration:

Here is one more walkthrough that does a good job of showing you how different shibori techniques will turn out:

Good luck!

Duuude. Do it. For $120 you get perfectly ground coffee (of easily adjustable coarseness) in about 20 seconds. Such a game changer.

I've heard good things about this Caspresso and Bodum as well if you want to save a few bucks.

u/TBatWork · 3 pointsr/rawdenim

Very good. In the event my Santa needs some inspiration: books are great. I don't have any denim related reading, and /u/KingOCarrotFlowers informed me of a cool music series, so these books are on the wishlist to pick and choose from: 1 2 3 4 5 6. There's always the Steam wishlist and the winter sale is coming up.

u/Callusing · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Oliberte. I've got a pair of Domos and they feel great and are definitely tough. And a bunch of them happen to be on sale right now on Gilt and Jackthreads. The styling might be an acquired taste, but I love mine.

And they're similar to the Mali in that they're pretty minimally lined and structured, as opposed to something like an Apache with a more defined shape.

u/cnbll1895 · 1 pointr/rawdenim

It doesn't take much. You can get an Aeropress, a small hand-powered ceramic burr grinder, and some fresh whole beans. You'll make an excellent cup with this setup.

Or just go to a nice coffee shop and try a proper cup (Aeropress, Chemex, pourover or something) to see if you like it.

u/Illannoyin1 · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

For starters, I used this dye kit because it was cheap and easy. Once the vat's set up, I soaked the shoes in warm water, dipped them in the vat for 30 seconds making sure the whole surface was covered, then (very quickly) rinsed them off in a tub of clean water. Let them oxidize and repeat about ten times, or until you're satisfied.

Chippewa Apache has very good sole for snow walking (they are not magic spikes but they are miles better than cork soles or gasp leather soles. -

Thorogood's are also viable options although I don't have personal experience with wedge soles but I have read online that they are good enough in terms of traction.

u/tyguy5679 · 1 pointr/rawdenim

In my experience black always turns out kinda purply dark almost but not quite black.

They sell these packs for pretty cheap. you can just buy a few and try it out if youre really into this idea.

Experiment. have some fun with it. Post your results

$5 seam ripper + 5 minutes of your time = star removed

Seam ripper:

Or, a tailor would likely do it for you for $5

Or, you could be super cheap & use a razor blade (utility knife blade) or super small/sharp knife

My Gustin 1968 are boring compared to my Bravestar (Cone Mills, 14.5oz - I believe)
I'd recommend Bravestar over the 1968 Gustin

First of all, shoutouts to /u/rcsAlex for spearheading the feedback thread last night! It's awesome that the mods want to continue improving this community by asking what the people want.

I've been reading this book. It's pretty interesting, but I'm not too deep into it yet. And I got a blister on my middle finger from pulling weeds today :C

u/zenossuspension · 1 pointr/rawdenim

I wouldn't say that one is more complicated than the other, it's indigo, and then a couple mix-ins to start the reaction.

Everything in theory, right?

That said, I'd say that the one that /u/tab338 suggested should be fine, and is pretty commonly used. You can even pick it up on amazon if you've got credits there to burn.

u/Salsa_Z5 · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I'm not exaggerating when I say you need a grinder. Doesn't matter what method you use to make coffee if you don't start with freshly ground beans.

This one is good and pretty cheap.

u/svalbard_is_my_name · 1 pointr/rawdenim

I just got my hands on this: Practical Guide to Patternmaking for Fashion Designers: Menswear

Looks good and detailed, but easy to read.

Edit: Got it used. Cheaper.

u/Billthebutchr · 3 pointsr/rawdenim

I personally started with this. Great info.

u/Dcs87 · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Get a seam ripper if you want to remove stitching. They are only a few dollars.

Much safer than a knife!

u/KingOCarrotFlowers · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I do know a lot about it.

I have a book. This book. It's quite good and informative.

u/captainpurple · 1 pointr/rawdenim

A lot of people also use this. It worked well for me and wasn't too hard to mix up.

u/paintedxblack · 4 pointsr/rawdenim

u/workweardenimhead got me this book Blue Blooded for Secret Santa, and I really enjoyed it. It has plenty of info you'll already know, but some other cool info, plus several brand/designer profiles. (Sorry for the long link - I'm on mobile and cba looking up a link shortener 😬)

u/seriousxdelirium · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I use a Kleen Kanteen branded with my favorite local spot but the cafe cap really reduces its heat retention. People seem to swear by the Zojurushi ones.

u/sardonicsmirk · 1 pointr/rawdenim

The thigh is probably not going to stretch any. If you really want to stretch the waist you can use this. I use one for my unsanforized

u/skriefal · 1 pointr/rawdenim

A hat stretcher with an extender is sometimes used for this. See here for an example.

u/LittleHelperRobot · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Non-mobile: this one.

^That's ^why ^I'm ^here, ^I ^don't ^judge ^you. ^PM ^/u/xl0 ^if ^I'm ^causing ^any ^trouble. ^WUT?

u/Vegatheist · 1 pointr/rawdenim

I've only ever seen this book mentioned here.

u/chilfhunter · 1 pointr/rawdenim

I got blood stains on my well worn APC's, you just have to live with it and embrace it. Eventually they will fade out with a few washes and is barely noticable. You can still see them on mine, but really only on the weft when turned inside out.
Trying to blot it out will just make it worse. You also order Woolite Dark from Amazon.
