    Those TFH wallets are sweet. Unfortunately, I’m trying to avoid the George Costanza wallet these days. I’ve been using the slim front pocket wallet for awhile now and won’t use anything else

    Any of you experience consistent front pocket wear on your denim? I have 2 pairs now that have developed a hole at the top of the pocket bag, likely because I’m always taking my keys in and out. I suppose I could just stop keeping keys in my front pocket all day but it’s a habit. Guess I’ll eventually have to send them in for repair at Indigo Proof.

    Nice Things

    I’m a fan of alternative movie poster art and nabbed this one not too long ago. Screenprinted, signed/numbered by the artist 396D772E-7BBF-4667-BBAA-6886E508D2C6.webp

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Never owned Onitsuka Tigers before. Got these on sale for 60 ducats. My NB are going to sh*t because of the snow/salt

    I do the same, but only once in awhile. Most of the time I pay no attention to my jeans unless I notice something that needs to be repaired.

    My thought as well. I’ve seen way too many guys wearing what amounts to a potato sack for a suit. Oh, and nice polished shoes do make a difference. Captoe balmoral is the standard for formal occasions.

    I don’t read blogs. Japanalogue is the only one I’ve read with any regularity, but only because he interviews denim brands, which I find more interesting. I’ve watched the occasional vlog on YouTube but again, not very interesting to watch some dude talk about jeans for 10 minutes unless I’m obsessed with something specific

    I know it may sound contrary to what you may be used to but try Nordstrom Rack. You may be able to find a Hickey Freeman suit for a decent price. I’d avoid places like Macy’s and such and not bother with a cheap suit. Otherwise, if you’re not looking to spend much $ then maybe renting a suit might work. I tend to look at men’s suiting/dress shoes as an investment, kinda like with denim/flannels/outerwear. You can go cheap if you don’t see yourself wearing a suit/dress shoes often, if at all, or get the best quality you can afford knowing you’ll have nice pieces later down the road for other occasions that might require you to wear a suit.

    Really slim tapered denim bugs me too. I need at least 7.75” to 8” with 8” being my preferred width. I could get away with an 8.25-8.5” hem but I don’t want something that looks too bell bottomish on my frame. I’m trying to be better at washing my denim more frequently to prolong the life of my jeans. I’ve already had two pairs go through really bad abrasion and blowouts due to months without a wash. My oldest pair of denim is 7 yo and still going strong because they get washed more often

    I do. Soak first then wash. I also wash to hopefully get some of the starch out of my denim.

  13. I’m looking to buy merino wool base layers (top & bottom) and curious which brands you guys like. Smartwool appears to be highly rated but I’m open to other suggestions. I came across another brand called Merino 365 that sells merino wool made in New Zealand but not sure of the quality. I’d like something either lightweight or midweight.

    The Flat Head

    I’ve been coveting the single riders jacket from TFH for awhile but this new brown version is really cool. Any of you have sizing tips for Flat Head leather jackets?
