Im not complaining, just had a feeling the second batch is not that well made than the first im guessing ,I can understand the loss and stress they are having at the time.

Still intact on mine, but like Foxy says it's bound to happen anyway.

So much for being more active, but here's bits and pieces since the last time. 

Finally started my vacation and kicked it off at the family cottage in Strömstad close to the Norwegian border.

Brought with me one of the unfiltered juicy IPA's I made earlier this summer.

A friend of mine had been home in Ukraine and brought back a little coffee present for me.

Took the train up to Stockholm over the day to see Hellacopters perform at Gröna Lund. They're always so damn good but man, I don't like these shows in amusement parks. The audience is always shit.

On Saturday we wrapped up Way Out West and I headed back to Strömstad to recuperate a few days. Brian Jonestown Massacre, St Vincent, Thåström, Arcade Fire and Amy and the sniffers were some of the best.

Really like that chore coat Bartleby.

Just threw my jeans in the wash for the first time. Hopefully they'll dry so I can take pics before going to Lisbon tomorrow.

Is that Tony Blair next to you @Foxy2? You should have given him a slap! :D

It seems like it would be difficult to take a bad photo anywhere in Big Sur, it looks so nice.

it wasn't, but I'll give him a slap just to be on the safe side - I can also tell his family that he went to see Wagner in Bayreuth, his family is mostly Jewish and they will not approve...

I met that guy last year, nice chap. He worked for Levi's in SF during the 80s. He was working and researching in the field of denim washes (stone wash acid wash etc etc). Give him a slap because of this blasphemy!

I totally forgot that - a very good reason to slap him right now...

Here's a few shitty shots after the first wash. Btw, how do I choose smaller image sizes via Imgur these days?

nice shots and nice evo!

imgur size choices: once selected image; at bottom right under the 'linked BBCode': i find 'huge thumbnail' a good compromise between sufficient detail and swamping the sufu page

Thanks Bartleby, found the button on the image page. Oddly not visible in album mode. 
Pics are now re-sized.

Great shots, Bobbo. Very cool to see how the arcs are breaking apart. Mine are quite a ways behind by that standard. I continue to think how curious and quirky the fabric of the belt loops is, and these shots only further that sentiment.

echoing this: i am also at least 2 months behind with the super-hot summer

re: belt loop - think i posted this b4, so sorry for repetitions: this feature is indeed found on historical pairs from c.1922

Here's my almost 6 month update on my tcb20s.  I've worn them pretty consistently since March 17.  Soaked 2x and washed 2x, hung dry.  I got a little distracted the past 2 months with new pairs, but have tried to wear these at least 2-3x a week.  They most recently been going to the gym with me and riding the elliptical.
