    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    @julian-wolf I would need a 38. I have never seen that size available, although I have not looked on yahoo jp in a long time. I sometimes look for other kakishibu options from other brands, but they tend to be a lot more $$$ than I want to spend.

    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    @julian-wolf I always wanted a pair of the persimmon Sugar Cane's; I should gotten them when they were available. Sugar Cane was my entry point into the raw denim world many many years ago (excluding the inexpensive Lee jeans I wore as a kid). I was thinking about getting a pair of Hawaii's for old times sake rather than returning to my usual heavyweight inclinations now that the TCB contest is done.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    End-of-contest update from #98. It's been fun. 509 wears on these, but the pandemic really put a damper on my normal activity levels. I don't think these have hit their peak yet. I will probably keep wearing these as my primary pair for at least the rest of the year. Unless my wandering eye now finds a new pair to wear.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    I was in New Mexico USA for a few days recently. Here is perhaps an obligatory denim picture of me on a hill over Santa Fe wearing the TCB S40 contest jeans. I dunno why I am standing funny. tly. Here is a view of Santa Fe from lower down on that hike. I went to the Meow Wolf installation (which I believe was the first one, there are a few others). It is basically a very large interactive art exhibit that tells a story if you care to find it. It was pretty cool. You aren't supposed to take pictures except for "personal use" so I will only post one. They probably don't want people spoiling everything. A old kiva structure at Bandelier National Monument. I dunno who those four people are. Here is a picture of the landscape at Valles Caldera National Preserve. On the way to Caldera and Bandelier we got routed through Los Alamos National Lab and we had this funny interaction with a guard at the gate: US: Um, we just want to go to Caldera. Is this the right way or do we have to find a way around? GUARD: You can get there through here. I need to see your ID. GUARD: OK, stay on this road. Keep going straight. Do not stop. Do not turn left at any point. Do not take any pictures. Do you have any drones? Don't used those it you do. US: Um, OK. I wonder if they stuck a tracking device on us. Some pictures of petroglyphs. The macaw was at Petroglyph National Monument outside Albuquerque. I am not sure it is really a macaw as what was one doing all the way up here in ore ancient times? The other creature was outside of Santa Fe somewhere on state land I think.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Contest is almost over. I finally got around to patching my back pockets; I was going to wait until after the contest, but that seemed imprudent. I did use the hemming remnants, so one can see what the original color looked like. I dunno what happened in the lower left corner of the patch; hey rawdenim is supposed to reflect one's life and personal journey, and it is clear sewing skills aren't part of mine. I still to really fix the patch on the cuffs (and patch more sections on both legs), I just stitched the holes back up for expediency's sake. I also reinforced more popped seams, but that is not all that visible as I replaced the cotton thread with black poly .

    400+ wears on these. Basically have worn them everyday since the contest started, but missed 20 days or so while I futzed around fixing the cuffs. I need to fix the pockets; I considered waiting until the contest was over before fixing them, but they will probably become non functional if I don't. Seams are popping in the crotch and the back and other places due to thread wear which is unsurprising. I have already restitched the crotch a few times already. No holes there yet though which is good. I am behind on my clothing repair, so hopefully a catastrophic failure won't happen until I can reinforce them. I am not getting a whole lot of roping and puckering and the train tracks are a bit faint, but then I have only washed these once after hiking in them after a multiday hike at day 300 or thereabouts. I am not one that has the need to wash jeans much anyway, and these pandemic times have made it even less likely they will get stinky. Given that winter is rolling in, I probably will only wash then once more before the contest ends. I think they will look really nice after that.
