    Sugar Cane Denim

    I'll keep saying it every time a pair of those gets posted—really, really wish they'd use that fabric in more cuts Great-looking jeans

    Never realized Lady White used loopwheeled fabrics—any idea which factory they come from?

    ^ Any likelihood of that shirt getting made again? Feeling like I should've grabbed one last run

    ^ Right, wasn’t that the idea from the start? That’s the case for all the fabrics they’re using…folks are just surprised to see the tiger camo there since it wasn’t on the initial list (and may not seem to fit as well as some other options w/ the overall theme)

    TCB

    Hah, come to think of it that does seem weird—but when I've tried 6's at Self Edge they've consistently been tight in my shoulders and underarms, so…go figure? edit: For what it's worth, the two Merz tees I have are the 207 and the 513, both of which seem to fit well in a 7

    I wear a 7 in Merz tees and just ordered a TCB L, so if you’re crazy I may be too…

    ^ Some nostalgic part of me wishes they still made that stuff I was in my big social drinking phase when they announced they were taking it off the shelves and I remember my pals and I each buying a couple dozen cans to keep around, all long gone now of course Fuck was it gross

    That's all marketing—it's been years, but by my memory they taste damn near exactly the same

    No love for St. Ides? Really, though, Bud and Coors are pretty close to the bottom of the barrel—I guess they beat Keystone and Natty and those, but they’re all right in the same category As far as temperature goes, I prefer room temp (cellar temp, really, which is what I figured most people mean when they say room temp in this context) for most beers—if I’m having something light and refreshing like a lager or a blonde ale I’ll have it cold, but all the cold does really is take away from the flavor, which is the last thing I want when I’m drinking something that’s supposed to be tasty

    ^ Screen printing would be the right way to do it, but might be more difficult for some to set up & get to work well at home than a stencil w/ appropriate paint. I’d be all for giving either a go, but for what it’s worth it looks like I’ll soon have access to a laser cutter, at which point it should be easy enough to cut out a batch stencils on adhesive-back vinyl or similar; would be happy to mail some out to folks depending on how the timeline works out. edit: assuming we’re all talking about this is the context of the TCB contest…

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    There were two LeRoys, but only one version was a repro—guessing these’ll be more like the others, if either Extra stoked either way edit: Any info on these yet besides what’s on the Self Edge Instagram page?

    ^ Not so sure about that—looser fitting jeans, when kept starchy, often seem to crease like that when crouching / kneeling / sitting—remember Uncle Karl's jeans from the '20s contest? Didn't they fade similarly?

    Muller and Bros.

    Re-reviving an old thread to ask: Any experience with Muller & Bros. workshirts? How are they sized, and, just as importantly, how do they fit? Googling around, consensus seems to be that the materials and construction are up plenty satisfactory

    I'd probably pass on a contest tee, myself—already put in an order for the No Shampoo Club version (as much of a lie as that may be), so I'm all set in that department Never really seen the appeal in re-starching jeans, in general, but I've always been sorta tempted to try out the whole wood-glue-on-the-outseam trick just to see how it plays out…maybe this'll be the pair

    @Broark, what happened to the Turbo? Funny, in the midst of all the car talk, to see you pop up in something with so many doors

    ^ Nice video, but why buy a new one? They trashed the pretty headlights in '04 and as far as I can tell it's all been downhill since then

    I tried to buy a V70 R earlier this year, but by the time I messaged the guy (3 hours after posting) it had already sold—c'est la vie Settled for a 2.5XT Outback, which has been doing the trick just fine Turbo wagons are truly the answer to everything

    Just went through to confirm my measurements, last minute—all this talk had me worried I might need to update my order—but nope, sticking with the tried and true 33x33 once-washed The final days are upon us!!!!!!!

    Tender Co. Denim

    Happy to—was planning to do the same for the round-top glasses, so maybe I'll try to lump them together next time lighting and motivation coalesce In the meantime, some quick impressions: I've been wearing the watch every day for around a month, and so far it's been serving me well. When I've tested it it's seemed to hold a wind for a little under a full day, which seems to be shorter than some, but I like to wind it twice (before I put it on in the morning and after I take it off at night) either way, so this isn't a limiting factor to me at all. It's been consistently gaining around 12–15 seconds a day, which seems to be within the expected margin. My one complaint, so far, is that the hands continue to move when the crown is pulled out; because of this, precisely setting the seconds is only possible when the spring has run down fully, and is a bit of a dance. I mostly bought the watch watch for the design of the case, and that's where it's really continued to shine. First, 28 mm is a great size; it's never too loud (especially given the dark coloring) and it never feels like it's getting in the way. I was worried, based on some of the photos, that the case might end up being uncomfortably thick / deep, but I think that the apparent thickness was just an illusion resulting from its small diameter: in practice, it doesn't feel any thicker than other mechanical watches that I've worn, even with the NATO strap. The crystal is lensed beautifully near the edges; it reads flat from above but has great distortion once you hit around a 30° incidence, and for me that's the perfect cherry on top.
