You can post smaller pics from Imgur by changing thumbnail size and getting the "Linked BBCode" snip:

^^ wonderful fit @erk, and the slightly warped perspective makes you look like a giant ; )
You don't look much like him, but between your surroundings and the fact that you're tall and lean your pics makes me often remind about the main character of Paterson, the movie. Where did you leave the bus? and the poetry notebook?

Seriously though, perfect "lean" fit, perfect inseam length, I'd be very happy about that fit if I were you.

my pair is still awaiting to be washed... everybody sick at home, I'm working like a slave, yada yada yada. I may have to wait til sat morning and a quick trip to the laundromat to slip back in the 20s. it's been pissing raining since sunday night, almost finished my underwear changes, the situation looks desperate!

thanks cucoo

'huge thumbnail' seems approximate for the normal thread quality reduction, decent enough quality, but with good load time

erk: ramp your pic size UP! imgur advice was aimed at my indigo monochrome filler: i am just testing for fabric-blah: get your fit in LArGE!

and volvo: paterson is indeed both tops movie (best jarmusch for long time), but to get literati-wanks-ville, the book is my favourite

william carlos williams, paterson, book I, 1946:

"Say it! No ideas but in things. Mr.

Paterson has gone away

to rest and write. Inside the bus one sees

his thoughts sitting and standing. His

thoughts alight and scatter – "

I have a pair of the non contest 20s and yes they have the lighter weight belt loops @Paul T. I was told they were in keeping with the originals. I did wonder if they are duck or lighter weight denim.

i've never ever seen a pair of Levi's 501 with duck loops. I think they were joshing you! Inoue surely used them because they look funky. You can clearly see the twill lines on the original.

Maybe they were joshing however that came quite direct as I questioned it myself 12 months ago as I haven't seen this before in years of buying. I'll say no more! Once accustomed, I grew to quite like the feature so didn't care to validate.

Trying to bypass the photo upload problem with a lil' instagram embed. 

The first three weeks I alternated with the Roy tour jeans and after Christmas I've been at quite a few formal events with work where baggy blue jeans should be avoided, so I'd put wear in the 1/2 to 2/3 of days since November 7th range. Three trips through washer and dryer, now contemplating if I'm going to give them a fourth before or after going to Eurosonic in The Netherlands next week.
