    Watches and Denim

    My wife got me the Longines Heritage Legend diver for a birthday / anniversary gift. A nice change of pace from the black bay. This watch is absolutely beautiful, and a great steal @1600 new. And it has the same movement as my Black Bay (pre in house movement)! I really want a vintage JLC memovox, but can’t justify it at the moment. This gives the same feel at a fraction of the price. The best part about this thing is the sapphire crystal rises vertically from the sides of the case for a few millimeters, giving this super thick but still minimalist look. This is is what I mean about the crystal. Easily gives the watch a few mm of thickness without making it look thick.

    I’d say that’s a very flattering fit on you.

    I assure you, there’s room for both beer and wine in your life (also speaking from experience). Fortunately beer (even the expensive stuff) is much less expensive than wine.

    Also, if you want a new rabbit hole to throw your money down, may I suggest wine (speaking from experience). 2015 and 2016 chateauneuf du pape were not kind to my bank account!

    Happened to me as well. And when it did I stopped scouring the internet for cool shit and just started buying sale shirts from Bonobos with cool prints and a good fit (for me), with admittedly shitty fabric and maybe questionable production practices (don’t know this last point one way or another; never looked into it). Whatever, don’t want to spend $300 on a shirt that doesn’t fit or doesn’t get me excited about wearing it. Haven’t skimped on jeans though, but like you said I know what I like and what works for me so not much more to discover.

    Love those fleeces as well. @volvo240thebests pic in the TCB contest thread (wearing Yuketen or similar instead of the sneaks) had me thinking about if JFK junior had grown up in the 90s.

    Here are my (nearly) 7 year old Roy RS04. Worn as my primary pair from July 2012 until November 2014, and then many times off and on since then. Major repairs by indigoproof. These were hemmed by selfedge at least 1 year after purchase + soak + several washes, so whoever says you can’t get good roping after soaking is a fool. Sorry, no fitpics on account of a certain moose knuckle.

    Still have the jeans. They are going on 7 years old now! Will never get rid of them (not that they’d be much use to anyone!). Maybe my daughter will wear them one day, or a son if I have one. I’ll post some pics soon. The darning job from indigo proof really is very impressive, despite the thickness of the fabric. The thread color is perfectly blended and it looks like a natural fade, despite being essentially new blue and grey thread.

    My pair of RS04 looked like that once... They were becoming pretty threadbare a few years ago so I sent them out for repairs. The darning on the thighs and crotch came back so thick they weren’t very comfortable. I’m sure they would’ve softened up again with wear, but sort of lost interest in being uncomfortable. Plus the repairs were so extensive they were barely the same pants anymore. Or maybe I just got fat and they didn’t fit...

    I picked up a couple of the Supreme Nato (seatbelt type fabric) straps from Crown and Buckle and quite like the look of this khaki one on my Black Bay

    Agreed that calf size is a constraining factor for me on these cuts. Thought I would love the relaxed tapered fits because I need the extra room up top and in the thigh, and it’s so hard to find that fit without a 9”+ leg opening, but imo they went too far in the other direction with the leg opening. I basically need to take my pants off just to pull my socks up!
