    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    ^totally right mate about the thrill of hunting down a pair. Same goes for me, got a few pairs sitting around ds or worn a week or two and am constantly wearing the same 3 pairs. I feel it's that way with most hobbies, be it vinyl collecting/music, cooking, coffee, leather-stuff or sports. It comes in waves and parts of it stick around in the daily routine. For denim it's usually the "daily beaters"/favorite pairs, for coffee it's the daily cup and so on. But sometimes one is overcome by the great desire to get all the music from this one artist, or to try as many fancy coffee-places as possible or go bouldering 3 times a week

    Shoes that look better with age...

    ^great work by nicks, never knew they did repairs for other brands. Think they won the Moc-Toe-game with this :D
  10. ^ if youu just want a padded layer under your denim jacket I personally think one of those function wear padded thingies are great. I know mammut, vaude and the likes produce them. They are surprisingly warm for the weight and, volume

    ^Those short-boxy cardigans with the highrise pants *-* Great combo, reminds me of the vintage 60s knitwear my grandparents dug out. Sadly never quite fit me...
  13. ^if u want to cheap out, miltec is the way to go. They offer an M65 with liner, cheap and kind off robust, definitely not great, but does the trick as an allround-jacket. The liner doesn't have any pockets, but you could have those added for a few bucks at a tailor oder add them yourself.

    ^same thought. Had the same thing happen on an old pair of sdas, missing the patch has made them half a size larger since it shrunk and hardened that much

    Totally understand your point. To me function kind off comes first, then comes my ability to work with what I got. With the tools I got, placing rivets and studs precisely is kind off a pain, so sewing goes a long way for me and offer similiar strength imo. It's just kind off why I got started in the whole leather-thingy, wanted a wallet that would last, look better than what I got and be very functional, still got that functional approach to a lot of things. For example the last belt I made was made with left over straps from a few belts I made for friends and family. Got a shorter piece of veg-tan, had some leftover cognac-colored leather as well, only thing I wanted for sure was the buckle-combo I got vintage. Sewed the buckle in veg-tan and the veg-tan to the cognac-strap, looks great in the end, imo.

    ^Patience is key to great work. Everything I rushed turned out not satisfactory for my standards, but luckily was only for me Will probably do something with scraps once I get the time, still have some vintage red goat, orange chrome tanned stuff and some crazy horse left over, maybe even a strap or two in something more interesting. I shall get thinking and drawing in my free time

    Master of western style belts @Duke Mantee. How long does it take to make one of those? Thinking of something similar with fancy stitchwork.
