ROY X CONE contest, 1.1.11 - 2.1.12

Recommended Posts

Wack!!!!!!!!!!!

Just kidding. I thought that dkatz could win on any level with his pair of jeans. He had the most experiences, posted a ton, and had some beautiful looking jeans at the end. Well deserved dude.

Now give me my $5 you promised for me voting for you.

Just a few other notable moments I revisited while looking back through Dkatz's posts:

Awe jeeeeeeeez guys! I feel like the prettiest girl at the ball. I'm blushing!

seriously just stoked to have been part of this. And im incredibly thankful to have had this - literal and figurative - forum to share that year with. It was not a very easy year but having such great enthusiasm from you all was actually quite a help.

Thanks to the Founding Fathers for getting this show together!

It seems to me that this contest was about three things:

1. The journey.

2. Sharing an experience.

3. A beautiful pair of jeans.

Congratulations Daniel. You nailed all three.

Ringring expressed it perfectly Daniel!! Well earned! Congratulations and a big virtual hug for you :)

Congratz Daniel. Your pair is awesome and I loved your posts (but those of the others as well, so to me *patchetic cough* you're all winners.)

Funny how the music stopped just as I got to the bottom of the page. It's always nice to take a strangely wistful experience and slather on a good schmear of surrealism. ROY has been a fabulous behind the curtain, Oz-like guru, and you all have made this a journey to higher and more bizarre planes of existence than some stitched blue fabric would appear to have the capacity to do. I think ol' DK couldn't be more worthy of accolades, and I would sure like to meet you sometime. It's been a heck of a rollercoaster ride, folks...

My workplace is definitely pretty casual, but I'm not sure it's quite frankenstein-pants casual.

The jacket, however, I'm sure will be seeing regular daily-duty! Sounds like Roy and I will pow-wow on it once he's finished Self Edge's most recent re-up. I'll keep you guys&gals posted!

^^Not daily, but about every other. Have been rotating back in the 201s. I didn't realize how much the ROYs had actually progressed until I started wearing these again as they are so far unbroken. Lees, and Left Fields are getting periodic time. Chambray underpants are in normal rotation (would still like to get more of these). Kitenge goes in the pocket every day. It's surprising how many young girls will ask about it out of the blue considering I'm old, dirty, and have been referred to as a little scary looking at times.

Fardin, have you listened to the Psychedelic Sounds in the originally intended track order? It makes so much more sense than the jumble International Artists made of it. I got to meet Roky at Bumbershoot a couple years ago. He's come along way back to the land of lucidity...

Will the jacket be the same denim?

Heh... awesome.

Pretty sure he used all of that denim on the jeans! I wish though...

For kicks, and because I'm not sure the last time I posted a fit pic wearing the ROYxCones here:

From a few weeks ago now (on my way to Inspiration). I think I'll always have that awesome "ahhhhh" feeling when slipping into these well-loved second-skins!

Oh! Another, which I know the Deutscher ROYxConers will appreciate. My brother finally developed the disposable (film) camera we took with us through Germany.

I think rubbing it in is how the winning fades were made.

I think it would only be fair to send it on a world tour, Daniel.

I think Robbie, Ranon, ADH and TG could join me on a world tour... would probably be comically small on the rest of you cats!
