It was open as soon as I let out that breath I was holding for the photo

‘Fab that some had already blown past the 1st furlong.  I’m like Hughie battling the “Seven” w/o any superpower.

Wore them almost daily, but it seems like watching paint dry, in reverse ... still hairy like Yeti.

Muffin cuffing is now trending. From the latest issue of GQ magazine (I get it free, wouldn't pay for it).

^ I did this in the late '80s when I was a starving student and had no belt to hold up my increasingly loose 501s... wish I still had some of those jeans, I used to visit the city and sift through the thrift store offerings looking for the red lines because they looked more neatly finished than the others...

@breakingfad I will let you know. Not sure when I'll be going back. Probably not returning to work in the office until February or later.

Damn @tjandaputra I hope you’re doing okay? Are you wearing the Knee brace of shame now ;) ? 

I had my foot in an Aircast for a few months a couple of years ago, which meant I wore sweats or shorts for about 6 months - only managed to stretch a couple of pairs over the contraption when I could find the energy. 
hope your heal up quickly.

I washed my pair today and the wabash fabric on the pocketbags ripped. It sucks but I think I can repair it myself..

@Qube those chest pockets go with the rise of these jeans: slightly undersized and leaving me wanting.

@tigerstrom Where did it rip?  Gnome had the same situation on the 1st wash.

 

So, I haven’t washed & not planning to wash anytime soon,  but I’m already doing assessment for an anticipatory reinforcement on the usual weak points,  e.g., crotch & pockets.

I’ve mentioned early on that,  though I love the chambrayXwabash combo on my pair,  the chambray would be the 1st to degrade & disintegrate.  I figure,  the less dense construction of the shirting material is not meant/suited for the task ... & now,  it seems even the wabash might be a problem, too:sad:

Compared side by side with the PBJ XX007 pocket bag.

The fabric ripped where the stitching ends on the corner of you understand what I mean. If I remember it was where gardens pocket ripped too. I have the black wabash so I hope you guys with the blue are luckier :)@BrownMetallic

Still deciding on the fabric material & how to incorporate it on existing bag ... also, planning on using Pellon  [fusible interfacing] to beef-up the chambray.

I see ... so, I’ll just deal with it when it does happen.  The flimsy chambray is my immediate concern.  Thanks!

I went to a muddy dog park today, this might call for a first post-wear wash.
