    very nice @nycsurfer530 ! not much denim evo to show since last update. here's some general life update.. I'm in Germany again for a couple gigs in the Bayreuth area, I had a little time for one of my favourite hobbies, mullethunting, here's a rather rare and fine example of curly vokuhila That was a nice beer, though the usage of that specific Gothic font brings back sinister memories, at least to a foreigner like me... I'm always fascinated by how communicative can be the choice of a font.. friends my mates new bags. Can't use the old bag I had made out of tcb denim to travel as it doesn't fit a laptop, so I have bought this really nice backpack on taobao. Looks like an old army backpack but has an internal sleeve for the laptop, plus 5 pockets, very happy with it.

    ^ me too! in particular there's one pair I've seen on IG and not here that's looks very promising, and then I look forward to see Paul's at some point. It seems either this pair is tougher than what I though, or the fact that since january I work mostly from home killed my fade skills. little real life update, while waiting for the fadezzz.... This week I've been a couple days in Zurich, Switzerland. I was invited to see the final round of the Concours Géza Anda, one of 5 top piano competitions in the world. The Festival I work for is one of the international partners and we always invite one of the prizewinners. The final round usually takes place in the Tonhalle, which at the moment is closed for renovation. The replacement hall, though, is cool as fuck. A repurposed industrial building that has been prepped as concert hall and that has some really incredible acoustics. yet another opportunity to be reminded that I live in "peasantland". I have no pics of the winner, anyhoo she's called Claire Huangci, she's an American of Chinese origins and she's absolutely amazing. I was pleased to find myself agreeing with the jury. my outfit for the finale and following cocktail, I know you all want to see it cheap Swiss peasant lager, 6 SFR a bottle. fast forward to today, cheap peasant lager in the land of true peasants, € 0,76 a bottle just finished this, didn't know Joe Lansdale, now I want to read everyrthing he wrote. truly captivating stuff let's keep it at least a bit jeans related, me on the way to super market Me on the way back from supermarket, backpack full of 0,76 peasant imbibements, I managed 10 66cl bottles for 7,60, just a bit over that single Swiss beer. bye bye the peasant

    ^ I think he used the forum's uploader rather than Pinterest. @FreeCharlesManson jeans look great though, lovely marbling. Full dad fadez potential!
  13. Shoes that look better with age...

    I've ordered these Winson boots after a suggestion of a fellow boot lover from Indonesia. He told me he reckons Winson, Sagara and Jalan Sriwijaya to be the only Indonesian brands that churn out stuff at the same quality level of good western bootmakers. They're surely extremely well made and the design and last are well considered and thought. They surely are a lot of value for the money.

    About 200 USD plus shipping, the Dr Sole soles doesn't come stock so I had to buy them separately. All in all 280 USD EMS shipping and soles included.

    Just took delivery of a new mto pair of boots. made by a brand called Winson, from Indonesia. Much better quality compared to the other Indonesian brand, I've tried. Santalum. There is no comparison in fairness. They're all stitched by hand, and peep the stitching itself. The owner, Emil, is a pleasure to deal with, and clearly very enthusiast about his work. Lace to toe design, the maker modified his last to accomodate my needs (higher and wider toebox). leather: rough out sole: brown midsole + Dr Sole outsole and heel peep how clean the stitching is boots were sent with two different kilties, longer (as on here) and shorter (last pics). And here how the rough out looks after two coats of sno seal, two coats of mid brown polish, leather laces and shorter kilties/no kilties. A darker polish would have been nice, too. nicely done, subtle woodmans heel Very well made boots, I dare to say they hold their own against well known makers. They're ready to be hybernated til the next winter now haha!
