    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..

    hype kills appeal for me. after spending years familiarizing myself with the brand and what E brings to the proverbial table, i can now narrow down what about it speaks to me, and achieve integration of its strengths with a garment here and there, not every element of my wardrobe/outfit ACR. i also think this speaks to the inevitability of change. i don't see the brand innovating much on a conceptual level, more just different clever iterations of what is fundamentally the same thing; more evolution rather than revolution. as i've matured and my lifestyle has changed, i'm finding myself still very fond of acronym, but more attracted now to mixing technical, organic, and practical. i didn't always have a great grasp on how to do that in a way that satisfied my inner critic. however now as the fashion landscape changes and brand awareness increases, the appeal has tanked. the garments are hollow - the people who wear them are what is interesting.

    The OA01XXc have been my go-to jeans recently. I think I'll hold on washing these for a little while and see how the denim does initially with some less frequent washing.

    The DD-1101 (1967 Model) arrived and are as well constructed as you'd expect. Here are a few fit pics with footwear variation inspired the beautiful_Freak. Color is a darker indigo than the pictures capture. 1960s details like bar tacks without hidden rivets on the back pockets and paper patch. The denim is 13.5oz, 7x7 American cotton (3 state blend) and crinklier than a basket of cross-cut waffle fries. I purchased directly from Warehouse and requested a pair with a waist measurement of 34.5" (I'm a true 36"). One wash measurements for 36x32 are: waist-17.25" laid flat BiG style (stretched to 17.5" while worn for the pics), front rise-12.375", back rise-16", thigh at crotch seam-13.625", knee-9.75", hem-8.75", inseam 32.125". The denim feels light and is stretchy. @Collin to compare the DD-1101 to the 800, the 13.5 oz used for the DD-1101 is a slightly lighter shade of indigo initially, has a noticeably lighter, smoother hand, and almost no nep. The fit of the 800 is slimmer through the top block with less taper from the knee down. The DD-1101 has plenty of room in the top block and feels like it will stretch easily where required. The fit is similar to the OA 02 I have, so I am on the fence about keeping the DD-1101. If anyone has specific questions about them or wants more details, feel free to send me a message.

    jakarta received its heaviest rainfall in 150 years on new year's day, this is the result: to make it denim relatable i was wearing ghurka shorts from workers.

    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
