    Watches and Denim

    In all honesty, the honeymoon didn't last I maintain that it's a great watch, perfect proportions for a diver, but in the end the faux vintage styling (rivets, 5 piece bracelet) got to me much in the same way that pre-distressed jeans just feel "off" to me. Basically a design trying to be something it's not, which is a shame because it's really a great watch. Under most circumstances I'd keep it, but I'm also trying to downsize and am looking for a solid two watch rotation of timeless "keepers" between my Sub and what I've decided on, a 34mm Oyster Perpetual. I also keep a handful of Seiko divers because why not at those older price points (no point in selling), and will likely pick up one of the new Willards for fun in the future, a space that the 58 Blue would've kept otherwise if I didn't need the $ to fund the 34OP. As for the SPB149, also a fun watch and I still think there's good value in that $1000-1500 USD price point for these latest releases, but with the LE creeping up over $1500, I'll be honest and say go for the Oris instead unless you don't mind the non-LE colorways which can be had at decent pricing! I don't personally prefer that skin diver case shape as a modern reinterpretation (or at least if over 40mm), but just my opinion!

    The denimio's are actually pretty cool, 29% Japanese paper, really curious to see how they'll fade but I definitely don't need another pair of jeans :X

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    I'm multiple times on record stating Ooe is my favorite for all encompassing reasons (craft, comfort, fit, materials, technique, personality, etc.). Just backing up what's been said above lol

    200! Insane...We have hard work ahead of us all, as I'm sure there are phantom beasts in the additional Japanese contestants who'll blow it out of the water. Best of luck to all!

    Missing out on those is truly one of my few denim regrets...

    @volvo240thebest what was the pair you're breaking in as a test?

    +1 on a Nomos (really any Nomos). If you're leaning that way already, chances are you know she'll like it.

    So good, much appreciated! Particularly interested in the through lines between what they were wearing (traditional clothing etc.), and what might've eventually inspired Levi's Jackets if anyone has the details. Interested in the denim aspect of it too as I'd always assumed they just wore traditional clothing as typically pictured, but you figure everyone had to be wearing work wear at some point. Super cool to see this was the case

    Looking for some Gold Rush or Transcontinental Railroad era denim worn by Chinese workers out of curiosity. Any leads?
  14. Like others, I'm a 'one pair at a time type'. It's helped that my denim purchases halted completely the past 3 years, but I've now settled on what I like and what's most important to me: comfort. Because of this, I stick with Ooe as the sizing is goldilocks for me. Looking forward to the TCB contest though, which means my current pair of Ooe's will be on the back burner for a while...

    As an aside, I'll be doing the "picture of a news headline with current date from laptop" starting image instead of an actual newspaper with date image. Is it fair to say we can start whenever we get the jeans? A couple weeks here and there shouldn't hurt long term? (Sorry if I missed the rule on that, I couldn't find it)

    Love the OG58! Kind of want both now, but will keep the blue for now as my daily wearer....It'll be dangerous once they release more colors as well

    I gotta go with BlackPink, only because they're really just models more than anything else in all honesty...

    @Geeman might be good to take up BJJ, as an aside. (Skill and experience will oft overcome youth/vigor there)

    1000XX has typically been my favorite cut, leaning more towards 47's than the 1001XX which were 50's right? Either way, these look super cool. Can't wait for more images and info
