    Elderly people just panic and go to hospital to be checked. they say we're approaching the peak now and hopefully the whole thing will end in april.

    Funny thing I played the last public concert in Milan on feb 23rd. It was a morning gig, and after we finished public authorities ordered to suspend all public events. gig was sold out but at the end less than half people who bought tickets showed up. All other gigs are now suspended until march 15th, and I guess they will be suspended again until amrch 31st. Performing arts economic sector is fucked for 2020. Thats a great line of drakkars mate. turbo wagon for the win!

    hey Ooms thank you for your concern! I'm fine! This is a flu, and not even the hardest one ever. as Italian I feel that after 20+ years of bunga bunga parties, we're left with very few things to be proud of. Healthcare tho is still great here, it's known to be one of the best in the world, and it's free. Ministero della Sanità decided to suspend many activities to prevent and reduce the risk of contamination. We had a high number of positive cases because we carried tests over a much higher number of people than anywhere else in the world. The virus that we need to fight defeat is ignorance, especially ignorance of the press and politicians.

    Warehouse

    cool post @Flash ! Do you know as a fact that other makers don't hand fold the back pockets? SPI sewing on Warehouse looks tighter, also in other models.

    It's a size 42. I find old warehouse sweatshirts to fit exactly the way I want, short and fitted. I have three now and they sell for peanuts on yahoo.jp.

    I think the mirror plays a role, unfortunately. I wanted to loose more weight but I am kinda stuck at the same weight now.

    This thread needs some extra detail shots of the LB denim (rebuilt.jp) jeans. I am really pleased that i had the chance of grabbing these jeans from @Broark . They are very good in every possible aspect, from fit ta fabric to construction and attention to detail. Clearly a lot of thought has been been put into the making of these jeans. I think the maker has found a very nice perspective on jeans making, the construction and fabric choice is clearly repro oriented tho the jeans don't have suspender buttons, and the maker offers the possibility of customising the hem width too. This is my third pair of 1922 501xx repro, so I had the chance of comparing them with tcb 20s and warehouse 1004xx. The fit is quite different from the other two jeans, notably they're cut slimmer in the hips, giving that elusive slender/straight stovepipe fit. They're also a little bit more tapered than the Warehouse and Tcb counterparts. here's some close ups, it's a cloudy and overcast day, the color is quite true. The shade of blue feels almost under saturated, and I remember I felt the same with the 20s denim when new. Warehouse it's definitely a different style of fabric, a touch heavier and much more neppy. The belt loops are made out a lighter fabric (as it was with the original) with the exception of the back centre belt loop which is made with the same denim of the jeans. the pockets fabric is considerably folded. Also Tcb 20s have a bit of this fold but it's not nearly as noticeably. I wonder if it plays a role in the fit. The coin pocket stitching uses two different colors, I wonder if it depends by a color variation of the thread or if it's a deliberate choice. 4 button fly with all donut buttons, it's not iron. Don't think it's a true detail but donuts buttons are the coolest, always. you can see these jeans fit close to the hips from the wear patterns. inner fly construction, beautifully unfinished as it should be Pekaboo The denim in its slightly dull, under saturated charm it's a nice shade of blue, very easy to wear as it doesn't stand out too much it's not too dark and not too vibrant. Back yoke construction featuring a massive "stagger" macro of the two different colors on horizontal and vertical stiching here's the tcb back yoke, very slight stagger leather patch will fade very quickly I think. Back pocket typical constructions with the "corners" made by the fact the fabric it's turned under the stitching machine, my english sucks here but I think you all get what I mean, hopefully. macro Tcb 20s corners are a bit more clean and subtle warehouse cornering and that's a snippet posted by LB maker on how the stitching is made Solide buckle what I can say? these are GREAT jeans. Massive value for the money, and I like the fit more than the other 20s cuts. That's it for now.

    Slim overall fits are hideous I tell you. It needs to fit loose and when looking at measurements you have to factor in that the waist must be loose to allow for freedom of movement.

    the smelly pit contest. No wash forever haha. I'd love to get the zipped popup but I guess we are far from minimal numbers. Cant'really picture myself committing to a shirt contest. I try to commit to a pair the jeans, often wear a denim jacket and the only variation is the shirt/top.

    I always preferred Blunnies too, but if you want something nicer also check Trickers Chelsea boots. they're amazing quality and will last forever. they make both a plain toe and a brogue version.
  25. proper blast from the past. these were cool as hell in italy too around 1996-1998. had them on the puma and adidas campus
