      01 | superfuture started in 1999. how old were you then?

      I was 15 back then.

      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      In 2007 or 2008 I first read about Nudie Jeans and it was the gateway drug into raw denim. In 2009 I joined the mynudies forum but learned very quick that there's better denim out there as well as a better forum where it is discussed. I was lurking a few months before joining as I was a bit intimidated by the experienced users there. superfuture and mynudies user Beautiful_freak was a great promoter of SuFu, so I decided to join in October 2010 by sharing some of my faded jeans and pictures of Levi Strauss' birthplace.

      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      I am by no means an expert, but know a thing or two about denim (especially Samurai and Iron Heart) and shoes/boots.
      I know a lot about fading jeans however, it's what got me hooked back then and still is most entertaining, to see how a fabric evolves over time and share it with fellow people. I can also give sizing and washing advice and know some cuts, so I always like to give advice to new members. My other interests are records, whisky and tattoos. I think I would rather think of me as an expert in these subjects, but besides the tattoos thread in superculture I don't share them here.



      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      I can't complain, there's some very friendly users that give positive reputation, mainly for my faded jeans. I am not a very stylish person so most rep comes for fades or WAYJDT (What are your jeans doing today)-posts. And I got a few points through the old rep system.
      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      There's always a period when my interests shift towards my other interests, but the community always keeps me coming back. There's a core of enthusiasts that are passionate about their gear which makes it fun to come back every now and then to keep in touch. Also there are many great contests and world tours happening, I also like to read older threads with this content. The OOE Yofukuten world tour being the finest so far, in my opinion. Besides that, I think that the denim blunders thread is often very entertaining, reaching political dimensions sometimes just to come back to very profane matters.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL?  
      I have met a few indeed, and all were great guys. Beautiful_freak, Volvo240thebest, Atzec, Almostnice, Kayodic and Blue Nemo come to my mind immediately, but I think there were more (also from other forums). It was always a good time and a good opportunity to be nerdy.
      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted? 
      Sometimes bitter, but I think online I'm pretty chilled.
      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      Most of it is super useful information and there are very well informed regulars here.

      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved?    You often need to lose something to fully understand its value... so I'm certain I would be devastated a while as this place has played a part in my life for almost 7 years now.   10 |  if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
      It has to be Maynard Friedman, we need to know more about this guy. Beautiful_Freak is a close second as he's a super active user for many years.

      01 |  superfuture started in 1999. how old were you then? 
      In 99 I was 18, I wore black oversized BDUs and black hoody most of the time, spending time with my skate crew and listening to french rap.
      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      When I first dicovered sufu, the website was not accepting any new users so I had to wait some time to get my login credentials. Even when I grind the supertechwear all the time, the thing that brought me here was one of the early denim world tours.
      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      Not an expert at all, I miss a lot of times and have to go through a return process quite often.
      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      Reputation is everything! I think I am going pretty good, but note that I post in supertechwear exclusively, I bet I will get more negreps if I posted in the main WAYWT or some other topics I do not even understand what they are about.

      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      Even when people are creating discord, facebook, skype, whatsapp groups, superfuture will always be the best place to discuss techwear. Most people participating in the new media are noobs who just jumped on the trend and have zero authenticity and knowledge.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL? 
      I met Polaris, supertalkers are rare in Czech republic. I know there are others but since we share interest we met. So shout out to sufuers in here/visiting Prague, let me know if you want to meet fellow deckers.
      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted?
      fast and controlled and twisted

      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      As I mentioned earlier there are some OG posts I do not understand at all, but overall there is less shitpost than on the new media. I like to check all the conversation in topics I follow and with sufu it's doable, compared to the new media.
      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved? 
      Hard to tell. I'd like to think I would be neutral about it, but I met some good online buddies here, had fun, gained knowledge and build my reputation empire. It would be a huge loss. WTB: superfuture x loopwheeler t-shirt (L/XL) so I have a souvenir.

      01 |  superfuture started in 1999. how old were you then? 
      Back then I was 19.
      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      I think I'd discovered sufu around 2010. I started to wear raw denim in 2009, and I think I found sufu because of some internet searches related on "how often should I wash my jeans". I'd been a lurker for a couple years at least and I've been an active member since 2012 I think. I only hang around the superdenim sub forum.
      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      I am not a pro! Just an average guy who likes to wear his denim. I am a musician and I work as well in music management. I play traditional and early music on wooden flutes and I work as director of a chamber music festival in Italy. My specialty would probably be everything involved with Japanese brand TCB. TCB is a small factory brand from Kurashiki in Okayama prefecture of Japan. They're specialized on reproduction of workwear from the 1920's to the 1960's. I bought my first pair of TCB jeans in 2012, just a couple of months after the brand was created. I believe I've been one of their first overseas customers. Since then I've become quite a fan of the brand and also a friend of the founder of TCB Hajime Inoue. Through my enthusiasm and sharing evolution pics of all my TCB jeans and jackets I think I've helped the brand to spread a bit outside of Japan.

      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      I don't care much about reputation. I do care about good manners and I see the rep system as a tool to keep the people well behaved on forums. 
      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      Raw denim, vintage style inspired by 1920's to 1960's, Japanese vintage inspired brands, leathercraft, fine boots. I like to see how clothes are worn, and I appreciate people who put together a well thought outfit, not necessarily composed by a bunch of expensive and exclusive clothes only. I also love vintage cars, especially Volvos (hence my nickname), photography, tattoos, and music of course, though the music I listen to won't appeal to the 95% of the sufu crowd, being mostly hardcore, pure drop traditional music, early music and classical music.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL? 
      I come from Italy, where the raw denim community is really small. Only a couple of my real life friends know and wear selvedge jeans, and none of them live in my area. There are only a few Italian regular posters on sufu, but I've never met any of them. I did meet a couple posters outside of my country on various tours. One of them has become a good friend IRL as well.

      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted?
      Definitely slow, chilled and controlled.
      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      The supertalk community is big, there are some knowledgeable people and some wankers as well hanging around here. 50/50? 60/40?!?

      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved? 
      Neither probably. Let's say I would be devastated and my bank account would be relieved!
      10 |  if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
      Another simple guy who likes to wear his denim well and hard, Max Power.
