Geocaching??? I had never heard of it. A little google search and it sounds like something fun to do on a day where no one can think of something to do. I still can't wait for my pants to get here. I exchanged mine for a size 30 so I don't expect them to get here until maybe mid next week. That's okay. You all will need the head start anyways... Hah.

i don't know how long geocaching has been round, but my friend has been into it for a while. the phone app. leads you to within feet of the spot. sometimes the container is obvious and sometimes you have to walk for a good distance. More people seem to be into it than one would think. There are about 25 caches along the rural highway that runs about a 30 mile stretch.

@surly, yeah nice wallet - and i think i see some potpourri bits next to your diffuser.

well it finally snowed in chicago, kind of? it's all pretty much gone. thought i'd never say this, but, where the fuck is the snow? anyway, i usually ride my bike to work, but this week it's been the train.

There's a guy round here trying to sell a brand new black 36. Search in the supermarket.

Great fit Eggplant! I'm also Andrew. I think we have 3 or 4 iterations of the name within our competition.

Excited to see everyone rocking their chinos. Hope you can catch up RNR. I can't wait until mine start settling and draping a little more naturally.

Was supposed to start a sleeve today, but the heat was broken at my tattoo artists place so we had to postpone. Super bummed.

Here's a picture of my pair from today. I can already see things happening.

Photoon1-4-12at426PM2copy.jpg

I sold my D300 body to my dad last week and all of my lenses on eBay. I'm still trying to find a lens for my new Mamiya 7, but once I have my camera you guys won't have to put up with terrible photobooth shots... Actually, this will probably be the last photobooth picture I post.

The shirt is a Gant Rugger chambray that I received for Christmas. I like the fit, but I'm kind of a freak... Lack of gussets, no run offs, the shape of the pocket, square yoke kind of turned me off to it. That said I think it'll get a lot of regular wear.

Edit: What are you guys reading, listening to, watching? Currently really into Nicolas Jarr's album Space Is Only Noise and Marika Papagika.

that greek music is "out" in a way that only folk music can be. i love how she starts cold on the leading tone....ahhh.

Yeah she's haunting in the best way. I would post a download link, but I don't think her stuff is entirely in the public domain. Even though it was released in the early 20's I think because it was rereleased in 2008 that would make it illegal to distribute... Anyway, her album The Further the Flame, the Worse It Burns Me is amazing.

Robbie, you should show what your khakis look like inside after a week or two... I've had light blue knees for the past 3 days...

Do the black ones bleed like the indigo do?

I should check in:

I'm Joel. I'm 27 and live in Brooklyn. During the day, I'm a software developer doing front end work, the rest of the time I take pictures. I'm planning on wearing these about 3 times a week as I'm in a couple other contests (eternal 811, which is already a year on the way, and the samurai 5th year anniversary contest, which is supposed to start eventually maybe) and have been wearing jeans for the past 4 years, so wearing these all the time feels a little weird.

thanks, they aren't actually crooked in real life, i just was using a laundry bag as a makeshift tripod. They're some of my shots that were up at a couple coffee shops this summer around the city.

We have some really cool people in this contest, lots of diverse occupations and locations. Ninja07 I know what you mean about the tightness in the hip area. I felt the same thing but after about 10 days things have loosened up nicely.

I was thinking of running a stitch line on the back pocket bags because they are quite deep. Thought that would help in placing the wallet where I'm use to it...

I'd also like to stitch a small coin pocket inside the right front, similar to many dress pants, so I don't loose my change every time I sit down...

Great fits Joel and Victor.

Victor, it's a right handed 1975 Fender P Bass. It looks left handed because the picture wasn't flipped from my webcam!

yeah i found the topblock a bit taut, but after a few wears it does loosen up. i find the pockets a bit deep, but that just means more chambray? i don't really mind them, but i'm not finding shit falling out of my pockets.

Everyone's chinos are looking great. I still haven't ordered mine as Christian suggested comparing the measurements with my old ducks - since we're away i can't do that for another couple of days. Itching to get these after seeing all your pics :)
