  1. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    Definitely washed frequently, but totally worn hard as nycsurfer could likely attest. As much as I wash my pair, those are still super crocked which requires activity/abrasion. I'm finding that I lose little indigo now, and since I'm not wearing as hard as nycsurfer, it's all settling at the same even deep blue. Will have to get some pictures up when I have good light

    Can't find a good res one, but he wore it in "All Is Lost" with lots of close ups: Grail remains Seiko 6159-7001. Favorite watch of all time. It's remake just won best sport watch of 2018 consequently... Otherwise, I'm lucky to own my attainable grail, SBGA031:

    ^I know nothing of Tudor text, but it wouldn't surprise me if they modded an OG dial lol One more of the turtle vs it's modern counterpart: Somehow I'm really taken with this one (6309 from '79); Of course I already knew the OG turtle was a classic, and my modern re-issue is my most worn watch, but finally having one in hand really put it in perspective. There's something to be said of old things, much like a pair of old Levi's...A certain intrinsic quality that carries the weight of it's lived past. Okay, getting a little too philosophical but I'm sure you can all relate! And if nothing else, at least we know Mick Jagger was right to wear one!
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    ^RW Moc toe was pretty slick IME, used to wear them as well...Of the top sufu approved, only my White's really cut it, esp. the ones with heavy lugs but they're way too heavy and kill my ankle flexibility after a few hours. Sneakers changed my life for the worse after wearing them the past two years because they made me realize how comfortable life could be lol. Ultimately, I appreciate the comfort and flexibility of them despite their disposable mass produced nature. Overall the heritage look is dead to me, as awkward as it is for me to say in superdenim, but that's sort of my mindset and what I'm looking for at this point!
  8. Shoes that look better with age...

    ^Not really sure what I'm looking for to be honest lol Wore Maine Boots (the green heritage ones) a few years back and they certainly did the job but unfortunately wore down within one season due to all the city/concrete walking. Looking for something a bit lighter, flexible, non-ubiquitous, and was thinking some of the modern winter hiking boots could do the trick. I think my aesthetic has gone so far off the sufu look the past few years but as time goes on (and I get lazy) I'm getting more into practical clothing that's pretty drab lol...Need my footwear to catch up!
  9. Shoes that look better with age...

    I'm going to get flack for this, but any good winter/waterproof boots out there, sufu approved? I've given up on my White's and Alden's given the weight, but I still want something light and flexible ala sneakers that'll get me through the winter. Are the following just too mainstream and poorly made?: https://www.merrell.com/US/en/tremblant-6-inch-polar-waterproof-ice/35129M.html?dwvar_35129M_color=J33187#cgid=mens-winter-boots&start=1 I don't mind getting more technical winter hiking boot looking, but I really don't know where to start...I don't want to go Danner

    Another year! Makes sense but seems so far from now...I'll do my best to hold out, but feel I've already had these on for a year (inclusive of prior pair) and have been eyeballing some Ooe's tbh :X

    Super cool of course, but I always wondered how official those dials were lol

    Patch is holding on for dear life...Given it's multiple trips through the washer/dryer across two pairs now, I can't say I'm surprised but it's really lending toward a true vintage look that I like. Marbling on the other hand is a bit too "3D", but reflective of actual lifestyle choices so I won't complain or call out as unauthentic. That said, we should all start sanding our jeans now that Uncle Karl is back in the fray
