    New Contest Suggestion [Poll]

    I like the green contest because I wouldn’t have to buy anything and money is a little tight at the moment- baby arriving end of February. But I can see the arguments against. Roy would be my choice otherwise if he’s willing. I’d save up for those!

    DWC2 - Final Submissions Thread

    @Spiraltoy you’ve probably gotten it straightened out by now, but I had the same issue if I copied and pasted. It went through when I typed the same exact address in directly. Go figure!

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Red Clouds Collective makes one, though it/they are not specifically marketing as mc wear: https://redcloudscollective.com/collections/new-products/products/gn-01-fitted-work-pant-dyneema-denim (mc as in motorcycle, not as in hammers)

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Sooper rare! Yeah, I’ve wondered if the pricing is higher via self edge vs him selling direct? Understandable because SE can’t sell for zero profit. Probably easier for Roy to do, no shipping/hemming/etc to be done.
  5. Here are my three most worn hats. Salomon mountains is most often worn trail running, but occasionally around. The red Fox’s Market hat has a sentimental story. My grandfather worked at that business in Middletown, Pennsylvania, where my dad grew up. The market has since been purchased and is now called something else. He died in 1986, and gave this hat to me sometime before then. I don’t really remember much of him because I was so young when he passed, but it’s nice to think of him and my grandmother when I wear it. And last, Ouray Ultras. Earned at the 2018 Ouray 100 mile ultramarathon. Earned as in you get the hat just from signing up, but I finished the race, placing 14th in just under 46 hours. I wear it with pride frequently in real life, for trail running, hiking, adventuring, and so on.

    Another idea could be a specific fabric producer with jeans made by whomever as long as it originated with the producer. For example, Cone Mills, which is used by many companies and in many different cuts.

    @Maynard Friedman I like that idea too.

    New Contest Suggestions

    Several of the proposed makers interest me, though it sounds like I might be the outlier in preferring a slimmer cut. A shirt or jacket contest would be fun.

  10. I second 2nd. You’ll have to use google translate to communicate unless you speak Japanese, they do not speak English (or at best, very broken).

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    I just got a pair of the Mafate evo 2. Pretty cool shoe. First run was a route I do at least once a year, and set prs all around, round trip was 45 min faster than last year. Uppers are woven Kevlar, so should wear well and are impossible to get wet, though my socks did inside from the bit of runoff encountered here and there. Anyway, if anyone runs trails, I found them pretty darn good. I’ve found some of their other models to be too narrow, but these are wider. Photo from run.

    Skull Jeans by An Alchemist

    I know as previously discussed, Skull is not really in high regard anymore for a number of reasons, but I really like these 5507xx. One of my favorite fitting pairs. At 113 days, one hot soak, one wash. Coming along nicely.
