    Last look at the pair post-wash before passing it next... Final conclusion after wearing it for a month: - Jeans become really boring from over-wash. - 1920s cut is definitely not for me. - nice details on this pair though... Really glad to be part of this tour, thank you @Bobbo for organizing it!
  9. Kapital jeans

    Adding to what @chicote say... He now works in Kapital Kyoto branch (maybe Osaka also?) Imo, he is the best person to ask about anything Kapital & can proxy anything from the brand (including catalog).

    Got mine in the Okagilly cut not sure if it comes in other cut. Contacting Jon might be the best solution.

    @louisbosco There are some (imo) nicer/better shops springing around Hong Kong since Take5. Delstore, Hide & Seek, The Vestige, White Whale Co & Black Sun is pretty great. Don't really like Take 5 anymore, got bad experience with the storekeeper the last time I was there. @Paul T Wearing baggier jeans then my usual pair helps, much better air circulation around the thigh & knees area. I always try to stay out of Central & Causeway Bay area during weekend for that exact reason unless there is something essential. (Eslite bookstore at Hysan Place is pretty fine reason...) Never got around to visiting Sai Ying Pun & Kennedy Town this time. I always had soft spot just walking around Shiung Wan area & looking at the small independent stores mushrooming around that area. I also (irrationally) like to punish my well-being travelling up Kowloon to Prince Edward for tasty brunch at One Dim Sum (much, much better option then Tim Ho Wan) @aho It is now Tom Dixon...not sure what happen to the famous murals outside. Not really surprising to hear its closure, price they are charging for clothing inside is horrendous... Personally also not into mall culture (There is alot already here in Jakarta) I like to find some hidden small shops around the city or coffee/tea spots to cool off. The chaos dynamic of the city is what draws me in again & again, obsession with photographing their bamboo scaffolding might play a part also.

    @Bobbo Lukewarm reaction, I remember him saying the cut would not work on him. @garden gnomes in space @Maynard Friedman Singapore's humidity is a killer as well. Hong Kong's blend of humidity & (what feels like) heat waves bouncing off the pavement & road, seriously feels like an oven whenever I stepped outside.

    ^ Yeah, its a highly dynamic city with rent prices for shops soaring like crazy. shops closes & open regularly. One of the most visible change at retails of this forum's interest is the closing down of flagship RRL store. Its pretty clear that it can no way be sustainable...the way most items were priced in that store in this economic times. The other sad side effects of the high rent is the slow demise of small traditional restaurants around the city. All of the one I like to go to is still there but do feel like its just a matter of time till the hammer comes down.

    More randomness around. Aboard ferry going from Kowloon to Hong Kong. Faster by subway but view is much nicer up here. Sartorial mode You can see these roots around the city, does add to the chaotic charm. Random amazing things Ending this anti climatic photo tour on one of the best hidden tea House in the city. You do need to work for it, climbing lots of ladder up. (The topography is not shown in Google maps ) but it's worth the effort. Ice tea had never felt better... This also marks the end of my leg, will wash the jeans & pass it on to Jigsaw asap.

    From here on, it's more or less random photographs from around the city. I do not take much as it's pretty hot out there. The ubiquitous tram serving the Hong Kong side of the city. The beat of the city is essentially split between Hong Kong Island at the South & Kowloon at North. Extreme gap, sadly pretty common in the city. High rise everywhere, some time can be overwhelming... Had a chance to arrange a Meetup with Simon (aka Sugar Mountain) over coffee. Women sitting to the left of us was playing Nintendo switch. My first time seeing it for real in the wild and distracted me like crazy when we chat. Another one, dad-ly jeans in view. It's actually really comfortable to wear in tropical setting.
