Hi everyone!  Tomorrow I will be wearing it for two months at work.

Some parts of my car are dyed blue.

I also wear tcb30's jkt in my work clothes.  The cat embroidery is very nice.

It seems to be very cold this winter, so I collected firewood.  I can get the scraps that can be made at the work site.

I want a lot of firewood.

Here are some of the things I usually use.

It is a chisel bag that I have been using for about 10 years.  The button is laurel.  I ordered this from a jeans shop in Kochi to make it.

And a smartphone case.

This will be about 4 months.

And jeans.

@chicotemy experience with hydraulic oil is that it doesn’t really wash off, it penetrates the fabric quite deeply and tends to stay. However the stains it leaves after the fading of the place are quite unique and cool imo.

^really hoped for wabash, when I ordered them, but after hearing all the repair stories of it, I'm happy, I don't have it. Really sucks to have to repair the pocketbags every few weeks.

Not sure if I just got lucky but the blue wabash is holding out for me so far. And fading nicely as well.

Given how slow I am at fading the outsides, I might start wearing them inside out?

Anyone else noticed fraying on the tab already? Saw it after the latest wash and it was super curled from the start, absolutely love this detail!
Is this the norm for TCBs?

believe it'll be up to volvo/TCB but the contest jeans are no longer available.  some exceptions were made but i think that was only for those who pre-ordered the contest jeans
