Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

Does this mean we need to start a new music genre along with clothing style?

My vote is 1950s rock and roll blended with screamo.

You know, I've seen Kiya lament how music used to inform how you'd dress (hence the rockabilly/vintage connection), but I've never really known what to do with this. I mostly listen to stuff that follows under the umbrella of indie rock. I don't think there's really any particular uniform for that, compared to punk, rockabilly, heavy metal, etc. Perhaps I should just dictate one.

Yeah, a good subculture needs music to go with it. So many subcultures these days are just a look it seems. What do hypewear kids even listen to? Bieber?

Anyway, Sandlotcore discussion is useless without pics:

I mostly listen to classic rock, early 2000's pop punk, and a boatload of Rush. Not sure that fits with my Sophisticated Japanese biker look.

Other than rockabilly, I'd say I listen to all of the above, I sometimes feel out of place at these shows cause I'm not really wearing "the uniform," although you do see your fair share of selvedge jeans at indie rock and hardcore/punk shows these days, at least in California.

I listen to gangster ass rap about killing people and selling drugs. I find it goes very well with my loopwheeled t shirts.

If anybody here is going to be in Greensboro, NC in the next month or so, the Wrangler Pop-up shop is going to be held downtown again.  I posted some pics of it in the WAYDT thread.  I'm sure there will be Cone denim offerings and rare goods by Wrangler in the shop like last time.  I wouldn't be surprised if Evan of Hudsons Hill's secret project with the brand is displayed as well.  Stop by and chat and get your denim chain stitched hemmed.

The Onion has some pretty ridiculous stories, but you would be surprised at how many people actually BELIEVE their articles.

@Flash those evisus look great, which denim and how heavy are they approximately? Can I expect a little stretch in the waist?
Thanks ;)

Just some art the Rezar store sent me with my recent order.  This was my first time ordering from their standalone site instead of the Rakuten version. They sent a specially designed package shipment which was cool too I guess.

Any Japanese/American silversmiths on Etsy?  I remember @volvo240thebestposted some brass buckles and also wondering if the same person works with silver.

Hope @cheapmuthafukris alright.  He's dealing with a hurricane like what we got in the Carolinas.

Looks like the new Oni x Tanuki collab jeans and jacket are even more sought after than a pair of Roy's jeans.
Apparently only 2 items pair size were given to retailers and those seem to be all sold out in seconds.

Interesting since the raw denim market is pretty saturated and most special editions, limited editions or new releases can be bought without much hassel. Even Roy jeans are still available on his site :D
Dunno where the hype for Oni x Tanuki came from but I blame reddit for it ;)
