    Photography Post Vol. 2

    Silver gelatin print on Fomatone VC 133 - I plan to selenium tone this eventually. It took a lot of dodging and burning to neutralize the high contrast, on top of it already being a split grade print. A working print on Ilford MGRC Warmtone Pearl Can we revive this thread?

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Sk8-hi for ever. A super old pair, and a 6 month old pair. I’ll get a color picture on digital at some point. The indigo crocking on the newer pair is nice.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    Interesting the hem isn't chain-stitched. Is that from a past hem job or is that a repro-ism? Nice score

    How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    My meager collection. Left to right: Samurai S0511XX Evisu EDG2000TH001 (Petero 18oz) Unbranded 221 APC NS Samurai S0500XX (either Lot 8 or Lot 10, I forget, and the patch is too faded to tell) Eternal 883 not pictured: N&F Skinny guy in Dirty Fade selvedge. Thrifted in almost-new condition, but have never been impressed by the fabric nor fit, so they stay in my dresser mostly.

    Evisu is still loved!

    Shameless low-effort post here, but check out the texture inside from the irregular warps and wefts tightening together.

    Denim Repair

    Yes My first sashiko repair. It’s crude but it’s mine! This is kakishibu sashiko thread. I blanket stitched the inside of the hole, then attached a piece of slightly stretchy J Crew selvedge denim inside. I had thrifted the J Crew pants, and they’re on their way to becoming jorts. edit: I plan to expand this pattern so it’s not so uniformly aligned with the patches. I also have some undyed sashiko thread for the knee, and the other thigh maybe in a different, more complicated pattern. These jeans are too big for me, and they’re becoming a practice project at this point.

    Eternal Jeans

    Eternal 883 - at least 5 years I’ve had these for ages, and since buying them, have gained a little weight, thus they don’t fit like they used to, and the crotch blew out prematurely.. twice. I had the crotch fully rebuilt (?) a while ago, then didn’t really wear them much. Then, the second time wearing them after the major repair, I slipped on wet grass and busted the crotch open again! I’m gonna try again, and get these repaired because aside from the worn out crotch, they have a lot of life left in them.
  10. @kicks79 thanks for the info. Interesting they don't get as much attention these days, it seems. Can you speak to their quality and construction these days?
  11. Y’all, what happened to Post O’alls? Yes they appear to still be a company, but I remember seeing much more activity with that brand many years ago. I ask because I just dug, from the basement, a Post O’alls nylon chore coat that I bought .. years ago. edit: for the record, chore coats are my jam

    Warehouse

    What’s the difference between a tab that’s been stitched and a tab that’s not been stitched? The actual text is stitched through?
