    I think the mega-batwing (my wings are like a shield of steel) was more early to mid 80's rather than late 80's ..at least the fashion had filtered down to 'knit your own' by 1985 or so the date on the knitting patterns would suggest.

    Beads, shoulder length hair, tie dye, LSD, floral shirts, flared hems (gotta be a loose fit)... Second summer of love in 88/89, when was the first summer of love? ^^When i was a kid i read 'No One Here Gets Out Alive' the Jim Morrison biography and it was the same back then... When Jim was 16/17 his conservative parents insisted that he wore new jeans (60's Levi's) but he loved his battered stinky 501's which he hid under his neighbours porch, in the morning he would leave for school in new jeans, change into his old unwashed Levi's under the porch and head off to school.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    22yr old Stans after 2years of wear in my workshop. I always used to wear pumps for work, i would buy new pumps wear them for a while then relegate to bike or work and eventually bin, then around 10yrs ago i had some romantic notion that i would buy a pair of engineers and watch them slowly take on the workshop patina as they aged gracefully, so i bought a pair of Lofgrens and after 3 months they looked completely fucked well i say fucked.. they looked about the same as those^ Adidas after 2yrs wear so i sold them on while they still had some value. I reverted to a pair of Buco's, being HH they were much hardier but not very comfortable after a long day so i reverted back to vintage pumps...y'lives...y'learns. In the decade preceding, i had worn a pair of LW Mechanics into the ground but i wasn't always in the workshop in those days so they had an easier life.

    Thanks B! I though i was getting close with Pastel Goth, Kawaii, (creepy/cute) and to a much lesser extent eGirl, ive found the nose line trend but they're horizontal rather than vertical.... i'll keep looking, non of the above are quite so extreme tho. Tell you what's just occurred to me, i didn't see a camera but they could have been filming... it would explain why they were off the beaten track and the lad (or possible cameraman) was dressed like an average schmo.

    ^^Maybe.. If they were in the city center but they were hanging out on some steps in front of an old cementation furnace on Doncaster Street between the wastland which was HSBC, the derelict Record Ridgeway building and a dodgy car lot with a barking dog which looks like an air raid shelter.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    When i was walking back from Tesco today near my work there was two young girls and a lad (possibly 17 years old) hanging around the seedy back streets, i said hey, we exchanged pleasantries, commented on a barking dog and i carried on walking. The reason behind the 'hey' the two girls were dressed in some crazy styles and i wanted to have a closer look.. almost like Harajuku style but they were white westerners not Asian, they both had super exaggerated makeup, one had a geisha style white powder face with a heavy red pen line running down her forehead (what looked like marker pen) onto her nose and the end of her nose had been coloured in with a red circle, this line wasn't even very neat, it connected to her red lipstick, heavy eye makeup, huge false lashes and dressed like a combination between a fancy dress french maid and anime cossplay, her friend wore lumo and platform shoes, more Harajuku leaning. Both girls looked wonderfully absurd while the lad wore a grey tracky and AF1's, ive been googling abstract makeup styles but nothing ive found looks anything like these girls, has anyone come across this style? (the red line down the center of the face in particular) either in the media or reality? maybe @bartlebyyphonics can help me out with a cultural referance? If they were up near the university i'd say fashion students, their steeze was way too off-beat to be Sheffield street styles...

    Who the hell clicks on this nonsense? i mean, the African elongation email has aubergine emojis, the dick pills have velvet underground style half peeled bananas, the payment received has bags of cash with $$$ signs and the fuck friends have lips, hearts and fire... it's like they're not even trying to be convincing, just seeing who's bot can conjour up the most ridiculous spam. If you need dick pills, fair enough but surely you wouldn't buy them via spam emails, it's just madness..

    Check this crazy shit out.. I have 2x emails, one for work, one for personal (the one a lot of y'all contact me on) work PC is encripted and anti-virused to the 9's, i don't use any virus software on my home mac and i'm super carefull not to type my deets into the interwebz, every month i get hit with 4 or 5 spam emails (akin to Sufu>Signet ) just unsolicited shit from Amazon and wot-not, it's been this way for as long as i can remember... anyhow last month my (personal) spam folder started getting blasted with spam on an industrial scale, it's fucking nuts! ive got 246 spam mails since i emptied it yesterday morning!!! it's ranging from survey requests from ASDA through to notifications that my bank account has been credited with, £421,560 (+ numerous other amounts) Dick Pills, China Crypto, Morrisons Voucher, Fuck Friend Requests, Ripple Coin, Hot Asian Ladies, Apple, Sexy Selfies, Nespresso, Learn To Be An Oil Trader, Bitcoin, African Elongation, Dyson V11 Vacuum Cleaner...the list is somewhat inexhaustible, reputable companies mixed with...well purveyors of dick pills and i-phones A couple of months ago i wanted to cancel my AA roadside assistance, i spent an hour on the phone on hold and thought fuck this shit, filled in the online contact form (which contained my email address ) and sent it requesting they don't renew my policy (ive only driven 1700miles in the last year) they replied by email, it was all legit... this is the only occasion i recall, in a moment of frustration typing my deets into the net but... What the fuck!
  14. I'm not sure what the sharpie method is but i would use some kind of tapered pegs (ive just sanded this one up but i appreciate, easier said than done) have a rummage in your tool box or cutlery drawer for something similar.. wet the button holes and shove the pegs in, hang to dry with the pegs in situ and it should loosen them off a treat, just do one first and mark a line on the pegs to indicate the perfect amount of stretch, you want to avoid having to do it a second time.

    Too much of a coincidence foir them not to have picked up on your DB/Sufu posts @Flash Have you replaced the brushes in the motor Chaz? they're usually the main culprit when it stops spinning.

    Vintage Denim?

    Don't worry Edwin, you don't need to justify your Wrangler allegencies here. Knowing your leanings... i thought you would be amused/mildly horrified by your choice in denim being politicised/interpreted by some of those out of our denim loop.

    Well i did say i read the article "some time ago" ..and it's not entirely down to the factors noted above, other factors include Levi's support for gun control ect.. Bartles links are not working for me but the article will be easily found via GQ or WSJ ect...

    Nice Things

    With a 3rd lockdown looming we're all spending a lot more time at home so lets see the things around the house you love.. It doesn't have to be anything expensive, if you love it, post it, i'll get things rolling.. Model 1227 c1938 Anglepoise (Herbert Terry & Sons) British lamp design at its best, original everything even down to the grommets, it's just had a sympathetic re-wire. It's sat on top of my mid-century wallnut and teak sideboard by Gunther Hoffstead for Uniflex Some geometric origami made by a local artist ...he was loosing his sight, couldn't paint so made origami I couldn't decide which side i preferred so i mounted it in a frame with glass on both sides, i can turn it around when i get bored Phlegm's Fight or Flight Kid Acne canvas The original at Park Hill There are numerous prints from this but only one canvas Mandy Payne's 'Everything of Value has Been Removed' I own some of her work, as does Alexei Sayle As you might have gathered, all the stuff i collect reflects the city in which i live, there will be a lot more to come if the thread takes off...

    This will brighten up your day Edwin!!! i read some time ago in GQ... research suggests, Wrangler customers have swung towards the republican party in large numbers whereas Levi's customers are solid democrats.. The shift being the result of socio-geographic changes, mostly found in the midwest where peeps tend to favor Wrangler’s cowboy image
