    One less pair of unworn Roys after today. I should’ve gotten one size up, but I’m pretty lean right now with my A race in ~two weeks, so it seemed like a good time to get them soaked and hopefully stretched out a little!

    At 204 days of wear, after second wash. Also one soak. Parts are still damp here, so the darks look darker and they appear more constrasty than in real life. Photo from a hike/trail work day last week with my best buddy!

    One thought that occurred to me: maybe he wants a bigger piece of that resale pie? Which is to say, if he sold for 40k yen, and they’re going on the secondary market for 80k+, why not charge more in the first place? (kinda screwed that up, was quoting the auction pricing)

    The video posted on the last page really piqued my interest to try to obtain the unobtainable. But at that price, ouch. I am surprised there is that much of a market in Japan, seems like it would be pretty limited and that he could do more business internationally if he wanted. Guess there is a lot more interest there than I would’ve thought. @Flash tempting and good price, but I think too big for me. One size down probably needed. The secondary market seems like all I could afford or even get in the first place.

    A sad day, but can’t say we didn’t see it coming. Seems more poignant as I approach the likely end of a big chapter of my life. Thank you Roy.

    Just remember four wheel drive isn’t four wheel stop as Texans learned a few days ago! On another note, I got the second dose of the Moderna Covid vaccine last week and wanted to report back. Definitely had side effects this time. Got the shot at noon and by 7 that night my arm was swollen and very sore, worse than the first time and that took a day or two to come on. That night I had chills and a low grade fever. The next day I felt super fatigued- as bad as the worst I felt when I had cancer. Just absolutely wiped out and no motivation to do much of anything. By the next day, I was back to normal and feeling a lot better. The day after that I got up early and did a medium length trail run. So while intense, the side effects were short lived and certainly worth it in my opinion vs the unknown and possibly much longer lasting side effects from covid itself. Though who knows, maybe I’ll grow a tail in a month or two!

    I was the victim of a flipper once- seemed really interested in the pair, extra measurements and photos and came down from an already great price as the buyer seemed genuinely interested. Next week I saw the pair for sale from my buyer for nearly triple what they paid. Kinda irked me, but once they’re out of my hands, it’s no longer mine and not my call. Good luck if you go for them!

    @chicote we should watch out for each other, that pair went for 80 plus shipping on eBay ~two weeks ago! Photo of the patch from the listing...

    My pair at 125 days. One initial hot soak, and one scrubby bathtub wash at ~120 days. I like to wait longer for the first wash, but wash more frequently after that. Looked like I dismembered a smurf in there. They certainly don’t look this contrasty in person, guess it’s the lighting and the phone camera. I’ve got a small section that’s pretty slubby on the right thigh which I tried to capture- feels almost like a mini PBJ, but only in that one place.

    Lookin’ good! And yes, with the interesting but awkward to access in public inner coin pocket. It’s been a long time since he’s made bottoms in something other than denim, would be cool to see something new in that vein.

    @chicotethat shirt looks great on you! I don’t have any of his shirts (yet) but agree that his bottoms seem almost tailored to me. All the different cuts that I have are very flattering to my body type. @longshanks I was eyeing that pair too, but decided they were too big and I therefore wouldn’t wear them. Here they are with a pair of the SE ducks.
