I heard of a fellow army medic who would offer to piss on soldiers’ toes. Something about the uric acid treating fungal infections.
I've never heard of that, but I did hear once that soldiers in WWII would piss on their newly-issued leather boots. Apparently, the urine helped to soften the leather up so that the boots were less painful when marching.

If you ever go past a tanning factory the stench of urinals is almost unbearable.

Tellason Stock looks alright for the price ($99). Might use some of my Amazon credit to give it a go.

As far as a black denim trucker goes, I can’t see anything that beats the basic Levis for value.

Rogue territory makes a nice one. If you want to go for something quality you could check Iron Heart or one of the japanese brands

I've been happy with a pair of 3sixteen I bought in the fall. At Self Edge, they come in about 100$ less, than the Iron Heart

Why? Is it the construction, the materials or the fit?
I'll second what Rambo says about moving upmarket a bit or a lot. Get a beefier denim, selvedge denim, better construction. Levis are light denim, non-selvedge, OK construction.

You've looked at Ciano Farmer before. They make a number of them. Only problem is the waiting time. 11+ weeks now.

Tellason is a well done jacket and so is 3Sixteen. Iron Heart is killer stuff that will most likely be your last denim jacket.

Freenote cloth ($300). 14.75 oz Japanese denim.

i REALLY dislike the lines on this jacket.

all three. all levis these days are put together fairly poorly, the fit is extra roomy which probably isn't good for you, and the materials are only fair at best. for a show piece like a jacket i'd step up in quality.

Denim jackets look good (can) but hard to wear in practice. They don't stop wind, they are heavy in summer and too light in winter. Uniqlo has some good cheap ones if they fit you and they look as good as the "authentic" stuff.
