    900 km later plus a trip to the mall to get it resized... Oni Aizumi bottom, with Reigning Champ sweatshirt. Girlfriend's N&F top.

    I just sold off the majority of my collection, and had my work situation been a bit better this year, I'd be getting a 1675 or 1016, which are dream watches for me. A birth year DJ with roulette date wheel also fits the bill.

    Because I trust shipping companies about as far as I can throw a UPS truck and I'm not super fond of sending $5k to someone I've only met on the internet :-)

    So much Seiko goodness. Where's the photo of Robert Redford wearing the SKX009? I've got 10 hours in the car tomorrow to pick up my 'new to me' Tudor GMT. I'm REALLY REALLY EXCITED.

    At my advanced age I've learned to care about two things: leg length and hem width. Everything else is totally variable. Jeans too tight? Lose weight. Jeans too loose, tighten your belt. Thighs too tight? See how they stretch out after a few weeks wear (not a few hours) and either sell them or lay off the squats. Rise too low? Lose weight... It goes on and on. In terms of Warehouse 900s, it relates like this: I'm a big guy. If I went by measurements alone I never would have bought these jeans. But, as long as I stay under a certain weight, they're amazing. I go above that weight? They're too tight, the rise is too low and the thighs feel like they're bursting. They're worth the work.
  6. Yeah - I used to buy the 501 STF from Fred Meyer way back in the day. They always shrank to unwearable, but I think it's mostly because I didn't know what I was doing. LVC jeans mostly aren't available in Canada, so I ordered from Unionmade. We get the pre-washed distressed stuff and a lot of t-shirts and sweatshirts. I'm kind of looking forward to having a pair of redline selvedge in the quiver, since I mostly wear PBJ and now the ONI Aizumis I'm killing this winter.
  7. I just impulse bought a pair of 1966 LVC 501s - thought that I should have a final bit of Cone denim in the collection. At almost $450 Canadian after exchange and shipping, did I make a huge mistake?

    Lazy people don't deserve good jeans. Honestly, though, just buy the 900s. They'll fit you fine and they fade really fast into something you'll be happy with. People worry too much about fit.

    Two washes in quick succession, more biking, and nothing. https://instagram.com/p/BpZ1xV_nFDD/

    I've been wearing my Aizumis non-stop for a couple of weeks. Biking, walking, living the hardcore active life of a 45-year old Canadian. No fades to speak of. Nothing. It's actually kind of annoying.

    Grad year Speedy (cal. 861), Oni Aizumis, and Schott.

    Nice. For some reason it motivated me to put on my old Oysterdate 6694.

    Does your DJ have a roulette date wheel? Aside from really wanting a GMT, I really, really want a watch with a roulette date wheel, and I think DJs remain undervalued by the market at large. Now if the Pelagos LHD was GMT too...

    I love my 009j. That bracelet really elevates it - nicely done.
  15. A thought that occurred to me while I was browsing the Self Edge section today... What would you think it a brand not only supplied shots of their jeans new, but also with some wear on them? Sure, it's going to be difficult with a new denim, but otherwise, wouldn't it be of interest? I guess you could always do a Google and figure it out. The spark was seeing a few new PBJs, the new SE/PBJ rinse formula and also wondering what my ONI Aizumis are going to look like, should I maintain a weight low enough to wear them for the winter.
