  1. Duke Mantee

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Spent more on Freewheelers
  2. It’s the same denim as the other stuff so you’ll know how it can evolve. I tend never to get any of that ‘honeycomb’ fading but because of what I said to Maynard and because they’re slim around the knee down there’s a bit of that going on - but not much really. I always wear out the back pockets quickly because I’ve usually got my phone in one and wallet in the other - plus my arse is well built
  3. It’s not been 40-50 straight days - but probably 40-50 occasions maybe a little bit more but I doubt it - I’ve been wearing too much other stuff for that to be the case … although I did wear them for a couple of weeks constantly while I was helping fix up my pals’ shop; there was a fair bit of sweaty development then - lots of crouching and kneeling (both knees had no fading before I started that)
  4. Thanks B - I honestly don’t know how long I’ve worn them, maybe 40-50 days? I tend not to keep track, I get that process for competitions and stuff but generally it’s a pointless exercise for me. I just rotate through my denims randomly wearing whatever pair I think looks best with whatever other stuff I’m putting on.

    The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Been wearing these Moonstar quite a lot - really happy with them; construction is good as always and the fit is perfect for me … not too narrow in the toe

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    Ah - you’re making it double hard - the Wabash versions of any shirt usually sell fast … for the very reason you said, it’s one of the best ‘fading’ fabrics around

    Thanks guys - no mention (I didn’t even know until another guy on IG pointed it out) but that’s no biggie … I’m chuffed folk are wearing the belts, that’s more than good enough

    Is there a particular one you’re after?

    Freewheelers, Bootleggers Reunion, Bubo, etc.

    That’s too random to quantify mate - it’s a sub brand that’s used to build or boost certain parts of a theme in a collection. So it normally depends on what theme FW have in their head for a particular season

    … and so another ‘simple affair’, this time for @skurlandski Russet Wickett & Craig Harness (about 9-11oz) with a solid brass buckle sewn in and a matching leather keeper Sorry about the image - we’re getting the tail end of the storm front (which is nothing compared to what many poor folk suffered) so I’ll get an indoor pic later on edit: pic updated

    Thanks mate - sometimes it’s best just to keep it simple - let the leather do the talking

    Taking sound advice from @Maynard Friedman I’ve decided to post a belt in this thread 9-10oz Newbury Latigo and a solid brass buckle … and simple affair for the Duchess’s brother who is a simple affair
