  1. As the title suggests , this is place for members to post there clothing pieces for sale/trade I'm not gonna post any rules because there is no way to inforce them but as a bit of a guide . Please keep pictures to a minimum , 3 or 4 pics per item . Make sure to mention and photograph any defects . Be sensible when bumping your items , once a week is plenty but if it's on the same page then what's the point ... right ? . Try and remember to edit your post when an item is sold
  2. ive never been much of a boot man , always go with a comfortable pair of trainers so i thought it would be cool to have a thread to show what trainers / sneakers were wearing . i realise that this could turn into a thread full of the same vans and converse over and over but hopefully we see a bit more of variety first up is my most recent purchase . Converse Star Bars , they are a japan exclusive release and i payed a bit more than i should for a pair of converse but ive always wanted a pair definitely going to get a few more pairs some Converse one stars next up is some vintage Converse from the 1960's , had originally thought they were from the 70's but after a bit of research i was proved wrong and my wardrobe staple , dont think ive been without a pair of these since i was 13

    Conners Sewing Factory

    i have made a few posts about CSF in the unknown brands thread but i thought id make a dedicated thread to try and make more people aware of the brand ( if they were not already ) . The founder Yoshiaki Konaka has a real passion for vintage and it really comes through in his work , he has spent quite a while sourcing and repairing old Singer and Union Special machines that were used in the production of LEVIS during the 40's so that he can accurately recreate the stitching and give the feel of a vintage garment here is a great interview with Yoshiaki where he talks about the brand so far he has made a 1946 , 47 and ww2 reproduction , the next release will be the 1941 model ( basically a 37 repro )

    Vintage Denim?

    that is awesome
  6. I'm having a hard time following all this mate , to be honest it all seems like nonsense to me and arguing for the sake of arguing ...... anyway .... what jeans you been wearing recently?
  7. Who isn't respecting religion or whatever here ? Mate we all get along in this little corner of the Internet so let's keep it that way instead of trying to get one up on each other
  8. I work with a few Indian fellas and they all eat meat ... no idea what religion they are because I don't care there nice lads , one fella Tommy even brought in chicken curry for a load of us before we stopped for summer holidays last year . @Talan I honestly think your conflating religion and nationality in this How about getting back to some nonsense related to denim or whatnot now?

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    @xav22 You can buy a stainer pen from Foxtrot Uniform ( on instagram ) or you can make your own , I use cream peroxide and mix it with fabric dye to achieve the colour I want . For the toe box .... all you need is shoe trees ( or just stuff the toes with paper ) a damp cloth and an iron . First insert the shoe trees or paper then place the damp cloth over the area you want to reshape and the use the iron the give you the shape you want .

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Got some Georgetown Terminators , always wanted a pair .... dont think these were all that popular in the UK because I got them on sale in HIP for £60 , usually retros sell out pretty fast and end up being sold by resellers Stained the midsole as I usually do ( need to wipe off the excess in a day or 2 ) and reshaped the toe to be more true to the original , the little creases on the toe should come out with some wear
  18. May start walking the street with a sling myself ....
  19. Only thing i have planned as far as purchases go is a lockhood sweat from freewheelers ( should be released in the next month or so ?? ) Were heading to Tokyo in July and the only thing "planned" is maybe a warehouse 507xx repro but I'm sure ill pick up a few other bits
  20. @Broark Northern Ireland has lots to see , the North Coast is beautiful and you've got the giants causeway, if your a game ot thrones fan there is a studio tour in Banbridge and in Belfast there is lots of tours and whatnot connected to the troubles ... and its probably the cheapest city in the UK to visit

    Edit ..... posted by mistake .... oops
  23. Thanks mate , I've always been into traditional America tattoos and I think its a style that really ages well . Remember when I was a kid my Dads old mate had a class geisha on his forearm , talked with Ale ( my tattoo artist ) about doing the same and he was all for the idea . Next session is going to be a snake to link the top and bottom part of the arm and im thinking a fan for part of my inner bicep
  24. Decided a back in October to get some old tattoos covered and start on some traditional sleeves , hadn't been tattooed from I was about 17 and I think im addicted now .... Booked in once a month up until April so should be more than enough time to make a good start on the other arm Any other members want to share some of there tattoos ?
