Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

Recommended Posts

I prefer a plain pocket to be honest.  Don't like IH or TFH arcs (disclaimer : I have got TFH as I didn't want to miss out when they were seemingly going under and have owned IH  but they had tonal arcs so I could live with it ) 

As I've said before FCs levi'esque arcs are cool as are SDA but plain is my preference. If I ever get WH those double arcs are coming off on day 1.

Agree with the recent sentiments here, unless they're "traditional" arcs I'm not really interested.
Now that I think about it I've sold everything with non-traditional arcs besides a pair of FH 3009's with domestic arcs and some Mister Freedom jeans that I have for sale...

Got something that needs to be shipped from Hoosier. Unfortunately ems still isn’t shipping. So he’s quoted me at dhl and ups both $90! 
anyone know of any other options before I just bite the bullet and pay that much?

Well, Canvas told me they could ship now to me via sea as I don’t know wtf that means since I’ve been shopping with them before the restrictions via ems.  I guess that’s another option besides DHL and UPS?  
 

The price they quoted sounds like you’re either trying to ship a jacket or shoes.

It’s a pair of jeans @mlwdp  
thanks to King @Duke Mantee! Hoosier has shipped my jeans to him and then he will ship to me. Which will be much cheaper.

That still sounds crazy for that price.  I just got a Denimio shipment on another pair of Trophy denim via DHL.

Denimio might be paying for part of the DHL price.

I know this brand isn’t exactly sufu denim esque, but I love this Patagonia pullover I just got.  Saw it on California Harvest Instagram/website and on Rakuten, looked forever for the green one and found it.  Call and begged Patagonia to sell this color again.

Been wearing it two days now.  Very warm.

That’s not aimed at you @mlwdp - it’s just a piece of general nonsense that happens to be after your post. The fleece is fine in my book :)

fleece looks lovely @mlwdp. I've been living on fleeces the last two winters and I'm pretty set to do it again this year.

It definitely fits true to size.  I bought a L and M to compare the two in sizing and the L fits perfectly.  I’m selling the M on the bay.

It’s hard to go wrong with Patagonia 5” Baggies or their Stand Up shorts. I haven’t found shorts I like more than those two, and both have become pretty iconic designs at this point.

While mooching around a derelict brick works/crack den with my kid at the weekend, amongst the condom wrapers and Wotsit packets we found this absolute gem of 90's market stall chav-wear.

It's reversible with a fleece on the inside (don't worry i was wearing gloves) i couldn't find a label with country of manufacture but i did find a name tag saying ' Property of Geeman' if found please return to Birmingham (posh bit)

 
We also found a suitcase full of VHS tapes, my kid was absolutely flabbergasted  when i pulled out some of the tape and said 'this is how we used to watch films when i was your age' ...yet he accepts without question that i can download films from the internet and transfer them to flash drive.

I still remember my siblings and I yelling at each other when we tried to watch a video tape and we realized that one of us never rewound it.

I remember there was a pirate copy of Robocop on VHS doing the rounds at school.. it actually belonged to a police officer at Hammerton Road police station (of Yorkshire Ripper & Hillsborough disaster fame) who was known to get you owt you wanted (this was when video piracy was in it's infancy of course) one of my friends dropped it off at the incident desk in the police station and asked he if he had any other good films, he came away with a late 70's porn film called Little me and Marla Strangelove... Oh those carefree adolescent days.. :ph34r:

Blue VHSs doing the rounds amongst school kids - brings back fond memories. Strange how the ‘action’ scenes were all grainy but the dialogue scenes played as smoothly as you’d like. Anyone would think they got fast-forwarded...

Kids today don’t know what they’re missing out on.

All my laserdisc stories are porn related Maynard. And I think this page is filthy enough.
