^ woof!

viva-tux life in the spring-time!

more on the jacket pls... (approx. how long worn?)

I got it about one year ago and have worn it off and on. It definitely fades faster than my Sugar Cane and Denime jackets.

some update..wear tcbs 1 of 2/3 days, I think will wear now more as weather is now more suitable for them

for the last several days it's pretty much warm here so decided take a walk to work and make some photos of what I see around everyday (mostly rivers and old buildings)

forthcoming couple of months will be the time when city look pretty good (dirty and dusty as fuck, but nonetheless good)

@dau what city is that?

 

@Bobbo Found out some more details regarding my Swedish great great grandparents.  Please excuse the spelling if incorrect.  One was born is Vastra Furtan.  Another was from some island designated for the king of Sweden called Kroksta Island??  I cannot find this so I assume its a spelling error but her dad was a game warden there or something.  

Oh, and your last name convention in Sweden is fucking confusing haha

Haha sorry for fucking with your mind! 

Hm..can't find much either. There is a place called Krokstad in Värmland, but it's not an island and don't seem to have any relations to our king. https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krokstads_socken Also did a quick search of where our royal family owns land but no success.

spent my sat morning cleaning and taking out garbage from the basement of my house. I loaded and drove my volvo super full 4 times to the rubbish dump. then I had to wash the jeans because they were dirty and stained my some oil gunk...  I'm about to start major works in the basement, it should become my new office.

still drying now.

before washing, greetings from volvo-hood

and greetings from the frigde of casa volvo, pleasantly loaded with my favourite beer. a solid peasant lager from Sardinia, Ichnusa. The wife is responsible for the vegan crap on the right. My brand loyalty to Ichnusa is perhaps second only to my brand loyalty to Tcb, haha!

post wash pics, plus a coupple extras. not much to be seen denim wise. I have the feeling that the older pair faded quicker. Anyhoo there's no need to be impatient...

So what's everyone up to? Here's a couple of shots from the last 2 weeks or so.

My good friends at http://goteborgmanufaktur.se/ recently moved to a new location. They also got this new t-shirt made on the Swedish west coast which I like very much. Also ended up with an indigo tee from Warehouse during the opening party.

Been to a couple of live shows. Songs of Boda was one of them.

I've been swimming, drinking tasty cortados at Viktors kaffe and tried roasting coffee (with at least decent success) in the oven.

^ looks tasty; coffee looks good, picnic looks splendid

over 9000 yasssss

agreeing; sure seems quiet round here: guessing combo of rep-less tech and fact that fades will only be repetitions of what has already occurred is holding us all back...

as an early receiver of new pair, i am 2 months into wear but had 3 months wear on previous... so still at least 2 months for many (those who received in april) before new fade territory is achieved?

but yes, as bobbo sez: what's everyone up to?

hello and + reps/yaaassss/whatevers to Bobbo to keep the ball rolling/keep the pan frying....

I've been abroad for a short tour in Germany. I have not many pics of venues. First gig was actually two gigs paid for one, two sound checks in two different venues, no one driving us around, 20 mins time for a dinner, shit hotel, the full deal haha! First time we've been threated this way in Germany in many years. Let's say it spoiled the fun of taking pics. Second gig was great but it was a matinée after gig one, wake up extremely cranky and tired at 5am etc etc. no camera action.

I do have this two pics to share.

ITA/CH border, we always take a pic. We expected a triumph, we found jester slavery!

number two, thanks Germany for cheap tasteless cold lager

as for the jeans, the fucking bastards do not fade as quick as contest pair #1. they're almost ready for a second wash though. will post denim pics soon.
my 30s jacket is fading great though... jacket pics soon too...

Here’s what I’ve been up to. I flew to Martha’s Vineyard for a little vacation away from the Bay Area to enjoy some time at the beach. Once I returned I visited my favorite Bay Area brewery, Fieldwork Brewing, which is know for their hazy ipa’s. I also went out for some ramen which was a clam ramen- not sure how authentic clam ramen is but it is delicious and full of umami nonetheless. Finally a photo from hiking around the Bernal Heights area of SF.
