    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @Wasim Hove Medical Centre! Very near to my secondary school, Blatchington Mill. My GP was always Montpellier Surgery. Hove’s pretty nice these days, and a bit more interesting than it was when I was growing up. I’m pretty close to Dawson’s garage, as a matter of fact, and only a half hour walk to centre of Brighton, so pretty well placed. I was in Peckham for a few years while I was working at the BBC. Most of my mates are still in that neck of the woods, so I’m around there often... or I was, until the shit hit the fan. I’d be in for a Brighton meet, whenever that may be possible again.

    I'm Brighton (or, as much as I hate to say it, Hove actually) born and raised too. Just moved back here from Toronto, where I spent a couple of years, for what was supposed to be a brief stint at home with my folks before moving back up to London (where I lived before TO). Plans on hold at the moment. Still, there are worse places to weather out the storm...

    Who did the TCB 20s contest patch design? That was fantastic...

    46 with new denim would be fantastic. Personal preferences would be raw, regular length, non-aged patch. Any little details beyond that (pocket bags, mis-matched buttons) would be a bonus.

    @beautiful_FrEaK The only credit I can take for my dad's pair is that I ordered them for him. I've got him into a few nice pairs over the years (LVC and OrSlow, as well as these). Will share some more over the ensuing days of quarantine...

    Also @Max Power, FWIW: my dad’s 50s slims, washed very often and worn to tatters.

    My 50s were the first jeans I washed super frequently, and I think they came out nicely as a result. Combination of straight cut and frequent washing means they held up better than any other pair of jeans I’ve owned (though they have had some minor maintenance from Ben Viapiana in Toronto). If I had my time again with these jeans, I’d buy raw (sadly not an option now, it seems) and have them hemmed by the man himself (these were done by Denimio). The factory one wash was heavy duty and meant I never really got any strong creases going. Minor quibble, though. Love this pair.

    I imagine this whole thing might be pushed back a bit, what with the apocalypse and all, but if and when it does go ahead, I’m in.
