Out in Left Field (1/1/2012-1/1/2013)

Recommended Posts

does it have to do with going with a loose pair or a tight pair? I've not noticed that with mine, but I went with a looser pair I guess.

I have tried not to notice mine although I do at times feel it looks a bit sloppy to echo mapz point. My pair fits looser as well so I've got more of a bunch up thing happening around that area.

For me it has to do with how I restitched my fly buttons, but they can be weird at moments.

i do have that problem too with the second button initially i thought it was just the top block being really fitting but now that it has loosened up a fair bit its still the same. could be the weak point as my second button looks like it may just pop out pretty soon

My top button started to fall off first day in (waist did not require any stretching so not due to that).

Also, in my previous pair of Caramel ducks (once again, sized up waist, no stretching) same thing happened with the top and second highest button.

It looks like the waistband is a bit tight, best solution is dampen the waistband and hand stretch gently or let it loosen up from wear while damp. When you dampen it stretches a lot easier. Also I notice the second button looks like it is in the middle of the fly vs on the far left side. Lotti did you resew the 2nd button? If you compare it to the 3rd button it is a bit in the middle which may help alleviate as well. Fades look sick though! Christian

If those are what I think they are, I'm stoked. There goes my tax return...

there is a left field thread where I'm sure others would be looking for info re left field. if I clicked on this thread, I would assume I was going to be reading about the contest.

@Left field, No I haven't sewn any buttons back on, my bottom one has fallen off, i just haven't gotten around to fixing it, i think the weird shirt tuck might have contributed to the strange fly situation. Whatever i don't really care if they fly shows, its not like they are dress pants.... great product christian!

Today was my day off so I did a little junking.

Other than that, it was a fairly ordinary day off. Mowed the grass and took a nap.

Alright guys. Here's a little instagram update. I haven't had the cash to send out my film yet.

A little recent purchases shot.

Irony of "haven't had cash" and the following picture is great =)

so today I had to go out to the Venice area of LA and as I've never stopped by the pier, I thought I'd check it out. If you're into sea bird poop and dead fish then that's the place for you.

everyone else is way ahead of me, can't really get away with wearing 2 pairs of pants to work anymore...

So I took matters into my own hands and decided it was time these chinos got a working. I went ahead and mowed, and edged the yard and our back alley.

Found this stuff, there goes the neighborhood I guess*

But after that trauma I managed to get the grass mowed.

* -- it is hemp, or 'ditchweed'. :D

I think if a person was really hard up they could probably smoke it, but it grows all over apparently, and the city and state come by and spray for it quite a bit.

whatup everyone.

arcarsenal and i, along with my lady, roommate and brother, just came back from a whirlwind trip to NYC. not surprising, i always love going back - it was a few days of hitting up, in my opinion anyway, some of the city's finest establishments. of course the ducks were in tow.

i'm no photographer but i picked up a fuji x10 a month or two back and had a lot of fun bringing it with me and experimenting with it. i don't really want to overload you, but what follows are just some of my favorite snaps from the trip.

enjoyed beautiful weather throughout:

the brothers duck:

in my favorite spot in williamsburg:

enjoying some afternoon dogs:

we all came back with pretty awesome hauls, but here's mine:

hope you enjoyed the update - i'll be tumblin' more photos later on.

Some post wash pictures. If you notice the blue shirt, that is the white shirt I was wearing this afternoon. Needless to say these mofo's bled like a stuck pig. That being said they are as dark as ever.

I am a terrible photographer, but here is a shot of the front post wash.427875_10150681493366835_508016834_9836766_602912471_n.jpg

no, I cut the hems myself, and intended to have them hemmed but just wore them instead.

I gave mine a hand wash and rinse last night. The water was much more blue than it was after I soaked them. Taking them on a trip for the next few days. May prove to be the high light of the year thus far for my chinos.
