    Grab yourself a camera and go for a stroll around your neighbourhood, within a 30min radius of home will be just fine, lets see the streets you walk everyday, the places you shop, the bus stops, no need for landmarks, the more mundane the better...as the thread suggests...? Here in Sheffield we have one of the largest poverty gaps in the UK, the city boomed during to the industrial revolution, imploded during the Thatcher government >further decline brought on by the outsourcing of the 90's. You can draw a line through my city, the rich/poor divide. I work in one of the most deprived areas but live in the West which borders our beloved Peak District, The Victorian houses built by steel barons trying to escape the cities pollution, Outside of London S10 is still considered to be one of the most affluent districts in the UK but we live in a typically working-class Victorian terrace house c1870 it's pretty much all we could afford in the area. These are the previously mentioned terraces albeit, ours is tucked away up a lane. ..Along the next street we go, Steve Beckett of Warp Records fame used to live up here, and Richard Hawley just a couple more streets away. ..the allotments at the end of the street Sheffield is the greenest city in Europe/has more trees per person or it did until Amey started cutting the f**kers down. Follow the river Porter up to Lady Cannings Plantation, for all your MTB needs Down to the park, typical Sheffield weather Just a stones throw from the working-class terraces, overlooking the park are the middle-class Victorian villas . . Heading up towards Ranmoor where red brick turns to olde'world stone This is the route i cycle to work . . Through the Botanical Gardens (like a mini Kew) . ... i pop out at our local row of shops JoJo's, find their vintage goodies on Insta Past local muralist and print maker extraordinaire Phlegm, lots of his work dotted around the city. . . . ...and back home. Go to it super-peeps and don't be afraid to photo-bomb.

    Moved to Tokyo about 6 months ago because of my wife's job and we decided on a neighborhood called Yutneji. We are on the Toyoko line one stop from Nakameguro and 7 minutes to Shibuya. Takes me about 8 minutes to walk to the station and in 20 minutes I can also walk to Nakameguro station or Sangenjaya Station. Tried to take pictures that captured the average feel when walking around the neighborhood. Lots of single family homes in this area and extremely quiet, very different from what I expected when we moved to Tokyo. Big family area, lots of young couples with children. There are some very nice temples and shrines in the neighborhood but I decided to skip pics of those for this. Included a couple of my favorite local restaurants and local shops that I frequent. The Tokyo outpost of Big John is at my train station so that is pretty cool.

    Second wash + dryer on my OOE OA02. Sorry for bad luminosity. Started to wear them in January 2019 so it's been almost 1 year with them ! Real wear time is closer to 6 months . In total they received 2 soaks, 2 handwashes, 2 machine washes. This picture doesn't give the beautiful blue the credits it deserves. Will do better next time. For those wondering what is going on with the back yoke: I always ripped the back yoke on every jeans and 100% cotton thread even faster. This time I've hand sewn on top of the original stitch with yellow waxed linen thread to prevent any unfortunate events. Roping is aftermarket at the excellent Dc4 and made by the kindest of all: Daniel. Looking forward to wear those more and more. Definitely my favorite pair so far..

    Picked up the 105's yesterday, to my surprise they have a tab. Not in the right place, but in the western position. I wasn't expecting any tab! Will try to get some fit pics soon, haven't tried them on yet. Denim is nice and hairy, not sure what it reminds me of. I like that there's already rust on the rivets.

    Was in the portland/woodland area for four days for a wedding for New Years. I really enjoyed my time there. The woodsy, rainy, overcast environment is really my jam. A little visit to my uncle somewhere in Vancouver, WA. Nice and cozy neighborhood. Woodlands area where there was a insanely curvy road leading to our destination for the ceremony. Fit pic Freeman jacket Boncoura shirt Contest Jeans Downtown Portland area. I wasn't able to really taste the local foodsy stuff except for Kim Jong Smokehouse (pork bun; twas good if a little overpriced) and some other place down in N Williams Ave which was terrible. Wish I was able to get something from the many food carts I saw. SEPDX. Wasn't open as we were too early. Hot pot somewhere outside Portland. Chicken Feet Wedding Day. Suit from Proper Cloth. Like it for the most part. Design needs some work (e.g. less of a high gorge and lower button stance) so hoping they give us those those options later on. I probably could have also make the suit a little longer and let the waist out just a bit but again I like it enough. Jeans now

    Good morning and a happy 2020 to all denim lovers here! Made myself a present and bought me a pherrows 421 at son of a stag London.Really want the wider 521 but these werent out of stock so i try the 421 model. Denim is 13,75 ow starched.Feels a little thicker and nice stiff.Absolutely fantastic,Deep dark blue.Jean is true to size and the denim doesnt stretch much ,apart from small hip flares.For the fancy yellow sb button on back pocket,i sanded the paint.Looks cooler imho.Measurements on clutch cafe side are really correct for this jean. Pics after 3 days of wearing.

    Thoughts on the J59-GT Haven’t seen anything about this jacket, so wanted to share my experience with it (since there are a few left, I think). I posted this on reddit as well, so more of a “I hope this helps those on the fence“ kinda post. I’ve really enjoyed this jacket. 1month ago Just got it today in medium. I’m 182cm/78kg, athletic. It’s a big and boxy fit, but by manipulating the zipper and the pull cord, you actually have a lot of control over the silhouette, which is the main thing I want to hit on. All the specs and similar are online and the product imagery is pretty spot on to reality. It’s modeled after the MA-1, which is what originally drew me to it. I’ve wanted an MA-1 forever, and have a few other jackets in that family like the Buzz Rickson Gibson B15, and a Rickson A2. But I’ve resisted getting an MA-1. I hadn’t found an option that felt quite right and there a something about the details on that kinda flight jacket that feel foreign to me. I get the same sense when I wear the B15, with its vestigial arm pocket and detailing that’s plenty useful as a pilot, a bit less so as a pedestrian. Anyway, seeing the J59-GT, I felt like I was seeing the thing I didn’t quite know I was looking for. A weather shield that looked like an MA-1 if you squint, but also feels like something distinct. When it arrived, I was initially a bit unhappy. The frame felt somehow bigger than I expected, especially as someone who usually wears more fitted clothes. But after walking around a bit and seeing how the jacket settled and moved, I think what I had interpreted as bagginess was actually the structure of the fabric and the internal volume mimicking the shapes and contours of a nylon and wool constructed MA-1. With the lines of the pockets and the manipulation made possible with the draw cord, it took on the shape of the MA-1 and (insofar as that shape is structure) actually creates a very structured overall look. This jacket presents an interesting opportunity to explore alternatives to (what I had understood as) the streamlined tech wear silhouette. Especially as someone who has been drawn to military surplus and workwear, there is something to the material efficiency of a lot of tech wear (and the way it almost diminishes the wearer) that I’ve never loved. Conversely, military and workwear have a lot of form-follows-function staples that present that function efficiently from an economic perspective, but not a material one. Just have the wearer do more squats if they complain. Anyway, my frustration is that often with tech wear I feel like the individual disappears behind the clothes, maybe as a protest to the commodification of identity and information in our current age. This jacket doesn’t do that, and it feels a bit less like it’s wearing you. It also feels a bit less “tech wear” perhaps, though I think my definition there is a bit limited. Anyway, my intent with this jacket is to wear it heavily, casually, and across a bunch of needs. So will report back on how it survives. Big points of concern are the zipper and the Goretex stretching ribbing. It seems pretty solid, but especially around the hands I imagine that level of contact with that kind of material will lead to sweat and potentially material degradation. But hopefully this’ll be a key piece for years. Hope this helps, https://acrnm.com/products/J59-GT_SS19 Also a thought: https://www.heddels.com/2015/03/william-gibson-interview-buzz-rickson-line-tech-wear-limits-authenticity/ —- Today One month in, I love this thing. Some big things: - Silhouette is very flexible thanks to the draw string and dual zipper. I’ve found the sweet spot for me, but have actually manipulated it from time to time depending on what I’m looking for that day. Definitely a more casual look. - The pockets are huge and useful, but zip them closed. Somewhere in Copenhagen, there is an outlier beanie that slipped out. I wish there was a bit of a well under the zipped area to catch such things. - The hood is awesome. I’ve also swapped it on and off again depending on what I’m looking for. - The chest snap is key. It basically lets the j59 semi-structured silhouette work without being zipped shut. - The 2L at the cuffs seems to work fine and has been nice in the incredibly windy Denmark. Still slightly worried about a sweat and oil collection there but haven’t noticed anything yet. - I’m a backpack person primarily, and sadly it looks kind of sloppy with a backpack. I usually wear a messenger bag with it now. - I have an 8mo old who I often cart around in an ergobaby chest harness, and this thing somehow makes that look okay layered over the harness and open at the front. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway, all told a big purchase that I was nervous about, but I’ve been super happy. I think I will get a more structured acronym jacket as well, but down the road and likely not in GT. Let me know if you have any questions, as there still seem to be one or two on the site.
