    Have not watched this yet, but I remember reading somewhere that she used to only wear 501s. Not sure about now though.

    Enjoying my vices. You can hardly tell but I am wearing the TCBs. Playing the long game with these for sure.

    The town I live in made like an official thing, to light up the town to show support for... whatever. So it was pretty unprecedented this year. However, a lot of it was slovenly... like using the light string as an extension cord so you have lights on the ground, and then up into the tree, etc. And I saw a ton of my least favorite decoration, the large plastic Homer Simpson (don't get me wrong, I am a fan of the Simpsons, just not as Xmas decorations).

    Not really an update but I deleted my Instagram. I got tired of having facebook track my movements. Anyway I think it's listed earlier in the thread. I'll post any denim updates here only from now on.

    Somewhat crappy iphone pic from this morning. It was raining.

    @Chris T I would say my go tos are still plain old 501s. And not necessarily STF either. After a bit of wear they just become perfect for me. I'm not entirely feeling the TCB cut either. Not that the jeans are bad or anything like that, but I don't quite get how they can feel tight in the waist and simultaneously have a 1/2 inch to spare and fall down without a belt. I'm still battling through in hopes they will eventually get more comfortable but at this point my hopes are dimming that they will ever be my favorite pair.
  7. @JDelage That's a good tip! I never really considered the effect of when the auction ends. But thinking about it now I'm sure that makes a difference.
  8. Thanks guys! I have some stuff that might be OK for Grailed but I doubt a pair of Wranglers that cost $20 new would go over well on there. I'm mainly focused on Ebay because I have a pretty well-established account. But at the same time the last time I tried to sell clothes I got $8 for a pair of Naked & Famous that were only worn a few times. So I'm not sure that kind of thing would be worth it either. I'll probably donate the cheap stuff and figure out something else with the others.
  9. Any of you guys have much luck selling clothes on Ebay? I have quite a few pairs of cheap jeans that are too big for me now that I'm looking to get rid of, and I'm trying to decide between donating and selling.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @chicote I always assumed those people were manually fading them somehow, like with sandpaper or something. I've never had a pair that faded on the thighs more than anywhere else. Knees and ass, yes. But not thighs. @mlwdp I'm 5'9" and I do want to hem everything also, however the hemming has been a bit of a challenge. I had a couple of pairs that ended up too short after washing, and then a couple of pairs that ended up too long when I tried to adjust. So now I am waiting until they are well and truly broken in to decide if I'm going to/need to hem.

    Still no signs of any fading. Last picture is something I came across while looking for a muffler shop on Google Maps, figured volvo would like it.

    I have a couple of these LL Bean "two-layer river driver's" shirts. They are merino/cotton/nylon and made in Canada by a company called Stanfield's. They are pretty warm, if a little thick. I have a henley and a crew, which they don't seem to carry any more, and I prefer the henley (the crew is almost like a mock turtleneck). https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/18145?page=two-layer-river-drivers-shirt-traditional-fit-henley

    This is a little over the top, and merging an iPhone picture with one from a DSLR isn't ideal, but otherwise my moon shots from last night are just the moon on a black background. This is very much not a single shot and the moon is never this big in real life.

    Was out in the dark this morning. We are having a full moon on Halloween and I caught it just as it was going down. Will probably get out my good camera tonight and tomorrow morning to see if I can come up with anything besides a bright ball (I don't have a phone camera app so no way to do manual settings on there).
