  1. I hear 'ya Duke, the days of counting wears are long behind me. A rough estimate is all I was after!
  2. These look great, how long have you been wearing these roughly? Inspired me to start wearing my pair more regularly.

    YM Factory comes to mind as a good alternative.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Probably a pair of Roy SF01’s, one of the few that I haven’t been able to track down, along with a few of the shirts that I missed along the way (original chambray, Portland and Big Bro). More recently I’d like to get my hands on a pair of FW 601XX 1922’s.

    Bridge of the Times

    @beautiful_FrEaK I have to admit, I've been in shorts most of this summer and haven't spent much time in these yet. I've lived in Texas for 12 years now and this was the summer that broke me, just been too damn hot! Here's how they look right now, my only complaint is the back rise is a little low and the front pocket openings are too small (but not nearly as bad as some other brands). Once we get a break from the heat I'll be wearing these again.

    Nice Things

    Not sure if this really belongs in this thread or not, but I don't think we have a backpacks / bags / luggage thread. Picked up this Porter bag from a shop in Japan. This is from their CRAGG line, made from a nice overdyed canvas, mil-spec nylon, etc. It's a little smaller than I had thought, they make a larger version but I thought that might be too much. Had been thinking I'd get something from Filson for years, but I liked this style more and from what I've heard Filson's quality has suffered over the years.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    The problem I have with most denim influencers is how perfectly staged and planned everything is. It just comes off as disingenuous and forced. I've also been conditioned to assume most everything is also sponsored in some capacity, so I can't be bothered with caring about the content. It's just ad money or free shit. I think we stand at a crossroads, since we all mostly came into this hobby genuinely. While many of the other people stepping up and presenting themselves as "influential" might not have. Not saying it's true in every case, as I have met some who are genuine people but at the same time have found a hobby that's marketable for them.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Perspective and life circumstances play a big part in this hobby for sure. I used to get sucked into hype at the drop of a hat, now I like to think that I'm a little more discerning and thoughtful with what I do buy. Hell, I'm still sifting through selling some of that stuff and selling it off. I plan out purchases now, don't make too many impulsive decisions. Mostly because in the past that would lead me to buying stuff that doesn't end up fitting or ends up being something I don't actually like once the hype subsides. Marketing is a hell of a drug. b_F, I think there will always be a market for anything truly deadstock. So if you have some pairs that were limited production runs with tags still on 'em, hold out and wait 30 years! The thing I like about sufu is that no matter how long it's been, someone can hop back on here and they're brought back to past memories and interactions like it was yesterday. We all share a collective interest, and I know that if I'm ever in another part of the world I can usually link up with someone I've met here which is pretty damn cool. Much better than a lot of other current social media platforms. Long live sufu!

    Warehouse

    Warehouse also recently announced a partnership with John Gluckow to produce some his vintage pieces. They can be seen here, and there's some really nice stuff! I'd imagine this will eventually make its way to the WH website: https://www.instagram.com/johngluckow.warehouseco/

    There are a couple floating around, but I'd imagine you'll see these released sometime soon (fingers crossed). https://www.instagram.com/p/CfWXinPva6q/

    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    Technically from yesterday, but still counts I think. Freewheelers Ironalls. Warehouse tee. Freewheelers Trackwalker. Yuketen.

    It's my first Ultima Thule item so I'm not super familiar with it, but my understanding is that it is geared more towards technical / modern outdoor gear. This tee is made from woven poly / nylon. Picked it up to wear whenever it finally cools off, seems like a good basic. The fabric is substantial but seems pretty breathable. I also somehow don't own any long sleeved tees, just a lot of sweats so this fills a gap.
