    Shoes that look better with age...

    ^ yeah, I think they're intended for the shop floor and literally nowhere else... as in, you'd better not be walking to work. Or any other place.

    ^ been enjoying CPs myself lately – found a job lot in my size on eBay, half a dozen Achilles in high and low, decent condition and about what you'd pay for one new pair...

    Your very existence constitutes a goad toward the acquisition of FW..!

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    ^ would be perfect with an Obvious Plant "Shoncago Balls Nyquil Jornan" t-shirt

    ^ I rather like the Flight Engineer.. an eBay seller here had one up for a good while – and I bought a pair of the El Capitan climbing pants from him, come to think of it – but I felt that 16 would've been a stretch for me even though the measurements seemed acceptable. Now he's vanished without a trace. Please don't tell me it runs large due to its status as an overshirt...

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    ^ I'm impressed at anybody's attempts to use a machine..! I've had some similar wear at the crotch, but have resorted to my usual darning with indigo threads unpicked from a roll of Cone selvedge I've had for ages – one edge of the roll is frayed from having some odd pieces cut out, so I figure I've got a few years left of unpicking before the roll gets tidied up and needs to be preserved. I'll get some pics up one day... dodgy as my efforts are, the indigo thread ends up fading and blending into the original fabric so the repairs become very much a part of the jeans

    maybe he finally caught whoever it is who has been taking photos and is now taking matters into his own hands

    you could do "testy"... I don't think that's been taken, and there's plenty of scope for interpretation...
  11. ^ I was given that book as a kris kringle thing from my old work – my boss at the time had apparently noted my seemingly inexhaustible supply of Nike waffle racers. Had some nice ones, along with some others that I was somewhat surprised to see had acquired "classic" status such as the zoom Spiridon (looks great, but the zoom air cushions on the outsole punctured easily and made a variety of wheezing and squeaking sounds)
  12. ^ Ha, was doing just that... of course, it's a different story these days, you could bounce coins off it* * not really
  13. had a pair of Lois in about '86... me arse didn't look like that, but

    Ha! I think I might be the antipodean @generic_guy – in addition to my precious lucky clothing finds getting "rationalised" or disintegrating while awaiting their moment, I had a beaten-up but very playable (and beautiful-sounding!) '60s Maton parlour guitar that I liberated for $20 (so, 10 quid or less)... my wife chose to display it in the lounge room... finally! some recognition for not only my valuable precious things, but my impressive skills as a glaneur!... and then contrived to knock it onto the hard floor while vacuuming the next day, where it broke into several irreparable pieces. In her favour, she does often suggest that I change into my most faded SC47s rather than the crispy rigid jeans I've selected for whatever occasion I'm feeling the need to wear "good" jeans to (What..? these are edo-ai, I go to so much troub.. oh, all right. Just for you)

    @Broark, have to concur with @Double 0 Soul on the Sugarcane; that's a good basic belt, you can feel secure in the knowledge that you're straight fire without drawing undue attention to the fact. UES do a good one at a similar price, but the buckle is rather square and the leather is thicc – feels nearly twice as much as the SC! You could also thread the Tender the opposite way round (so the buckle is upside down), but that is challenging and deprives you of the excuse to buy another belt.
