  1. I've never had issues with Buyee, either. I've also always receive my packages in less than 10 days as well.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    My most worn boots - my Wesco 'Mister Lou' engineers with a new pair of black ones. Both bought barely worn. Both need a lil condition and a wipe.

    Hey friends - thanks for your feedback. Because it's my personal blog there will be personal elements strewn into the pieces that are opinionated. Although if there are facts stated, like I said previously, they can be incorrect sometimes but I try to be very thorough with my research. If you want some more reading or videos where I pull my info from please shoot me a message! Thanks for reading and your feedback!!

    Thank you both - I still have a lot to learn obviously. I've only been into this community a fraction as you guys have. Hence why I'm here!

    https://indigoamateur.com/2022/04/04/sustainability-in-our-clothing-and-why-i-wear-pre-loved-boots/ New blog post on sustainability and my personal experience. Wanted this to be a quick think-piece on the way we consume products and why we should wear more, buy less. Hopefully doesn't come across holier-than-thou. Of course any C&C appreciated; I am learning as I go along and I do a lot of research but if I miss anything or if there is misinformation, as I know someone will, let me know! Enjoy!

    Oh excellent. Wish I had the discipline to wear my denim this often. I end up throwing on fatigues too often - but I'm glad there's others like yourself that are dedicated to make theirs look this good.

    Wait you only wore these for 6 months? How often? These are crazy good!

    For sure - thanks for sharing. Honestly, I took the word of the seller. The guy who was selling it spoke of it as a WW2 issued piece, but I get what you're saying. I thought of it odd to ask him 'how do you know?' instead of just taking his word for it. Last thing I wanna do is spread misinformation.

    Hah - perhaps not but I'm a tad dramatic with my wording, and also I am not too good at finding info myself so if you have resources you'd like to share online, let me know! I have plenty of books with info but it's easier to have it readily available on another tab. There wasn't documents per say, just other blog pieces from Heddels and the like. & yeah you're right. I actually learned about this recently in an Avant mag. I was always curious as to what the codes meant on the tags as I knew a little from knowledge I picked up along the way but not exactly what each letter and number meant, but now I do. Kind of...

    Oh wow! Great sleuthing - this is great info. I think you're right on the money. Because of the sheer amount of these garments that were produced there were also many still being worn throughout the grace period. But then when they issues the 'new' ones with two pockets to new navy recruits you would obviously see those more often, perhaps even with older navy men switching out for the newer improved uniform. I'd be curious to find some documents stating the exact date they switched - as the info I found online was specifically unsure, as well.

    WAYWT 2022 [denim edition]

    Certainly a topic for discussion to say the least. Kids aren't for me - but who knows, maybe I'll change my mind one day! Also - Children of Men is a wonderful film.

    It sure is. & Great question, actually had to look it up. I know the WWI stuff had one pockets but I'm curious as to why they added the second pocket. Turns out it just seemed like a good idea for utility. It was introduced in (or around) 1940.

    Picked up this absolute beauty two weeks ago from my local vintage dealer. WW2 Navy CPO shirt. In my size and barely worn.
