  1. ha.. how many sizes down should I go..? sag y/n, stacks.. cockfade to left or right.. should I keep brass knuckles in my pocket..
  2. seems like a "remember when..." sort of article, when we were supposed to avoid washing at all costs unless it came with the added attraction of "natural" abrasion to hasten dat contrast... heh. There were only so many ways in which it was permissible to facilitate or accelerate or the fadez... biking, squats, sea-wash – my best honeycombs were usually attributable to sitting on a low sandstone wall while waiting for the bus... things would change with different jobs etc, which I suppose is that whole just getting-on-with-life-while-wearing-jeans thing.

    New Contest Suggestions

    I felt the same way about the square pockets, but then I lucked into a pair (and now a second waiting in the wings) and realised nobody gives a rat's arse about..er..my arse and got over it. The pockets actually hold a long wallet better than most – I have a FH wallet with silver ring, and unless it sits above the pocket edge it chews through the fabric leaving a notch which is fine once the jeans age, but a bit annoying when they're still new-ish. For some reason the wallet sits where I want it to even though it's not pushed all the way down into the pocket. Otherwise, I find FH, Samurai and SC have the best pockets for that particular wallet. FC, UES not as good.. ah, first world problems, eh
  7. ^ That's how this style of jacket should look, as far as I'm concerned... yes, tucked T-shirts; short-n-boxy sweats if it's cold out. Mind you, there are only about two days in any given year here where I'd feel the need to layer garments

    I think it looks fine, it's just that the sleeves are a bit long... they'll feel shorter once they've developed decent wrinkles at the elbow. If you give it a hot soak or wash – or run it through a dryer, though I'd understand if you're reluctant to do that with a new item – it should still have some capacity to shrink. I've got Valencia St LVC type I and II, both of which I'm afraid to wash in case they shrink too much – I'd rather have some leeway!

    Watches and Denim

    The Horse here in Australia makes decent quick-release leather straps, although they're 20mm. The price has doubled since I first bought one, but they seem in line with other offerings... about USD $35 I've had two of the veg tan – the first has aged to where I want it so I started another – and one black; I swap them between a Longines and Seiko Bellmatic https://www.thehorse.com.au/products/theoriginal-veg-tan-leather-strap-stainless-steel-strap

    ^ that looks right – any larger and it would be off, in my opinion

    random Australian opinion: Leon – it's a man's jacket

    The Flat Head

    ^Looking good, Kyle... my 3005s, 6y+ with zip and (maybe) 4y+ with buttons have been getting some wear again lately – can't really say why I stopped or started; lots of other jeans to wear and find the hems a bit flappy, most likely. But the 3005 is definitely one of the greats.

    Tender Co. Denim

    that concept is so satisfying it's compelled me to post a comment! For some reason it puts me in mind of an old short story "Rump-Titty-Titty-Tum-Tah-Tee" about a rhythm that was represented graphically and overran the world until someone came up with a visual antidote. I want one.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    my old SC66 have that same patch (paper, though) – I'd imagine these are being made under the same arrangement as before

    ^ I've had this happen on quite a few pairs of various brands and weights... depending on construction of the placket, you can often fold it over and sew it down so it doesn't have a point in that hot spot
