    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    Perfectly roastable fit while the SCs are getting hemmed. Nike cap, 3sixteen, Uniqlo straight raws, Birkenstock.

    As long as you've never had the thought, "This would go great with some white New Balances" then it's just fashion. I think you're good, bro. For now...

    What are your jeans doing today?

    This is so awesome! I wanted to get more into woodworking last year, but I put it on hold until I can access a shop space with good tools and tables. But I managed to make what I titled "skinny tables" to place against my apartment balcony rail since I wasn't allowed to attach planters to the ledge lol

    Haha! I should clarify, I would not have purchased them had I known they would arrive so gross. But true, I agree that so much of the guilt gets unfairly passed on to the consumer as opposed to the real culprits, the fast fashion mega conglomerates and hesitant lawmakers.

    Reyn Spooner/SC Okinawa/Uniqlo House Slips Despite my grumbling on the blunders thread, these jeans cleaned up really well. They fit my waist perfectly, but the way they fit on my frame feels somewhat antithetical to the spirit of the cut lol

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    What are everyone's thoughts on sustainability in denim acquisition (and other nice things)? In an effort to consume less and be a bit more environmentally conscious (and to be budget friendly), I have been mostly purchasing 2nd-hand items these past few years, and I generally don't have a problem. But I just bought some very lightly-worn Sugar Cane Okinawas online... and damn they were absolutely disgusting. Covered in dog hair, smelled like incense, and had what I hope is just a dirt stain. After a hot wash or 2, I think I may just buy new jeans from now on.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    I want to say I experienced the same thing with my 66, but I think I just started packing on the pounds lol
  9. Boiled in ocean water I hope! Don't let him ruin his fades!
  10. I've been scouring this thread and loving it! Seeing the serpents here made me so happy! I know they're still used in various band and folk traditions across Europe, but it's cool to think that they've been around since the late 16th century. (Though here they're holding it in an 18th-century way). It's evident that there's a certain vibe in this thread, but I regularly rehearse and write about music in my jeans. So as my contribution, for any J.S. Bach fans, you should check out the music of his father's cousin, Johann Christoph Bach that I've been enjoying lately. J.S. is known to have performed his music in Leipzig and even there have been works of J.C. mistakenly attributed to him, (the Ich lasse dich nicht probably being the most famous loss of the J.S. Bach canon for J.C.). This is an aria/lament titled Ach, dass ich Wassers gnug hätte, and it is full of really cool musico-rhetorical devices described and codified by previous generations of German rhetoricians, I won't give the full lecture here, but think things like dramatic leaps, word painting embedded in the music like "Tag und nacht" (day and night), and suspended dissonance over the word "Sünde" (sin). Playing on period-accurate instruments (except the organ) within a non-equal temperament makes the tuning sound so good!

    Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Has anyone else noticed how difficult it's become to look for lightly-worn LVC? I feel like everyone is trying to peddle their Salvation-Army-snagged Levi's as "vintage"? Ebay and Grailed are flooded, my Boolean search looks like a formula lol

    I'm in the process of trying to gain mass, but I'm in an awkward pudgy stage. When looking at my denim, I'm ready to shed a tear knowing how they used to fit lol. Unfortunately it's a Uniqlo straight pair for me now until I land at a steady (hopefully sexy) weight...
