    Good luck! I tried to teach my 20something year old girlfriend to drive, she's now my 40something year old wife and still can't drive for shit. Speaking from experience i would say a crash helmet and flame retardant suit would be more appropriate...oh and get the emergency services primed.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    Up to (and including) the 70's Porsche were considered to be cool af, but then the 80's happened... they've never really recovered from that city-boy b(w)anker image over here.

    I've just been reading that as from today (1st Jan 2020) Nike stockists will no longer be able to ship outside their trade territories if they want to continue stocking Nike product a'la RMC. "Shipping to consumers internationally is in violation of Nike Terms & Conditions of Sale" ...that's Nike, the international sportswear brand...wtf! Fueling the gray/re-seller market or what!?
  11. On that other forum where i used to hang out, i started a thread 'Show Us Around Your Neighbourhood' with a cap doff towards the tour threads.. often my favourite element in the tours is getting to see where you all call home, i mean travels are nice and'all but its the streets you walk everyday are which interest me the most... Ive been asked by a couple of folks to repeat the thread over here but a 'couple of folks' isn't going to make a thread. The concept will be.. grab a camera and take a 30min walk around your hood, everyone and anyone can join in, no need to go far, i'm not looking for landmarks here, the more mundane the better. If y'all fancy it, i'll get the thread rollin...

    From what i can remember.. FW's struggled to get those cardi-coats made for years, even with the swankyest knitting machines they still only managed 50 or so pieces hence the price (i'm sure you can find the blurb online) I haven't handled the FW's or the Drakes so if you've done the Pepsi-cardi-challenge i'll bow to your greater knowledge but regarding knitwear i find you're better off basing opinions on weight/gauge rather the 'chunkyness' ..as mentioned above chunky can often mean loose, sometimes even see-through depending on the style of knit.

    Those Freewheelers 1920's - 30's turned down collar sweater coat's (which Duke has) look unparalleled.. but for a thousand quid so they should. There was some good shit in that old knitwear thread...

    I look at it this way Charles "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness" (if only Levi's felt the same) the jeans which they're paying homage to 1930's-1960's Levi's being "greatness" and if Levi's would have maintained some level of 'greatness' up to the 1990's instead of cutting costs/maximising profits there would have been much less need for the Japanese replica boom, obviously availability played it's part too. Today's offerings.. 'Barns 7011' from budget sweatshirt/t-shirt brand Barns Outfitters. These jeans are £5 on Yahoo.... ...and these are a tenner I bought a few bits n bobs from Barns back in the midst of time (S-Town put me onto them) they're great staples for very little money.

    .. ive done a bit more reading up and i'm as sure as i can be that those Smith's buttons are indeed original, deadstock, vintage.. from 'Smith's Overall Company' a well known established American brand (apparently) ...but rather than these being 'old, old stock' vintage, Smith's was still making overalls/workwear in the USA until relatively recently, taken over by a Japanese workwear/denim company in the 90's so those buttons, if 'old stock' were probably not that old at the time the jeans were manufactured. A pair of MiA Smith's overalls . .

    Aside.. It annoys the crap out of me when brands deviate from the universally recognised S/M/L or 38/40/42. Ive seen some brands using sizes 1, 2 and 3, which forces retailers to give a key '1=Small 2=Medium'...ect or "email us for advice" so what's the f**king point? its not impressive its meaningless and beyond pretentious.

    ^^I wear the same pair of jeans every single day and never rotate so i don't buy (or even consider buying) a new pair until the pair i'm wearing falls to pieces (usually between the 2 and 3yr mark) this helps immensely.

    Only the MIA SC-47's.. although they're now a cheap pick up on Yahoo, i would have to live in clothes miles denial.

    'Missing In Action' i'm afraid Martin, i was expecting them to be delivered to my work address before Christmas, if i would have had any inkling they would have taken this long i would have had them delivered here...

    I'm continuing with my 'no buy' trend since 2017.. although i do have a very cheap pair of jeans M.I.(christmas post)A, i'll go hunt them out in the new year, they were a prez so im conveniently not taking them into account. In nearly 3 years ive only bought.. SC-46's to replace CSF-46's, 3x baseball tee's and a SC-46 Type1 which arguably i didn't need, i think i'm doing pretty well.

    I'm typically a size large in vintage 1970/80's era t-shirts, a size medium in japanese tee's and a size small in modern (western) t-shirt blanks.
