    A clear powder coat layer would do if you're worried about durability? Needs a good painter though, otherwise you can get the dreaded orange peel effect. Not a great fan of the hype that surrounds Jono Smart as a potter. There are plenty of other artisans doing wonderful work without the artificiality of the Instagram waiting list and drops. Leach Pottery offers lots of temptation. https://www.leachpottery.com/individual-makers-1. That being said, Jono Smart's work is very accessible price wise, when compared to Steve Harrison.

    Bringing together two passions. Original 'large French' movie poster for the classic cycling film La Course En Tête.

    Helluva of a job of work to assemble that Pace. Most of those components would've been considered esoteric in the 90s. Now they're as rare as rocking horse shit, not to mention about 2-3x their initial purchase price. I had white Onza Porcupines and Porci-paws on an ancient Trek. Thought I was John Tomac.

    In case anyone UK-based might be interested, the 45rpm store in London is closing down. They are doing 50% off all stock until end of today. I popped along yesterday. There are a fair few sizes of the Futatabi 6.5 Sorahikohime jean still in, especially in large sizes. There's plenty of other lovely bits too.

    Ande Whall Denim

    I don't quite know what's more brilliant, the fades on the jacket or the French Kiss patch. Chef's kiss to both!

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Very good! There was definitely a crossover in style between geography teachers and physics teachers. Always a filthy coffee mug in hand too, except for my old geography teacher who was an old soak. Can't be too cruel though, I have a fine pair of Spellbound indigo-dyed rice cord trousers. And I learnt to my dismay recently that the Cord du Roi / Cloth of Kings thing might be a myth.

    So much great knowledge in that book. @PaulT has swopped workwear for watts these days and become a physics teacher!
