What are your jeans doing today?

Recommended Posts

Lax buddy if you dig the Westone sound, perhaps the better upgrade is the es5 which I've heard and really liked. They have that nice laid back sound from the um2 which I loved.

Jh 13 didn't sit right with me, bass was recessed in comparison to the es5, I'll probably get a Jh 16 next, unless I get sent another pair of customs free ;)

You using an amp?

was in Japan a week ago with my gf... if you're hungry, scroll past these posts

The only clothing item I picked up was a pair of Danner Vertigo and a pair of winter pants from Uniqlo, I guess I have way to many denim.. I still have stuff with the tags attached from my previous jp trip

I was originally going to cancel my annual japan trip, but my gf wanted to go so we decided last minute that we'll head there for a week

On our way to Japan

^hey Frankie.... why so mellow.... need an inspiration huh? nice harbor pics tho' :P

yesterday my buddy Benzak returned from his business trip, he called me for drinks and geeky chitchat as usual.

i was in hurry, got dressed and took the tram... couldnt make him wait any longer, busy man he is and next week he'll leave for another business trip

that cafe was where our secret meeting took place, De Boterwaag!

392091_10150415684221547_592366546_8455076_769153526_n.jpg

i had latte macchiato and beer for B. He brought me my new LVC 1947 501XX that he got at LVC sample sale in Amsterdam and Workwear magz #6. so very kind of Mister Benzak!

and yes this was also an underground Obbi Good Label Gathering, the Chaotic wallet met BDDxOGL....

we were nerding out... flipping the magz here and there... i must say, very cool edition featuring your fave denim digger Mike Harris and some other familiar faces like Rudy Son of a Stag, the dynamic duo Menno and Rene Tenue de Nimes, Fredrik Johannson Unionville and last but not least Daniel from 14oz. Berlin

teaser teaser teaser of BDD new scarf fabrics..... B showed me the fabs indigo fabrics. the check one is gorgeous!!! if you're wondering what the green color is, it's also indigo! it's because of the different stage of oxidizing process. Comparing to the right fabric, it's very rich of Indigo and very fine fabric, looks so slick... Both fabrics have selvage ends.

AMAZING PAGE! haven't checked this thread since 5.0 and am reminded that it it so cool.

ah long - food/female pics are amazing. i haven't been to jp in 8 yrs, but i crave boss canned coffee all the time. i think i ate at that very same sukiyaki joint and tofu place!

riff/zeen - off-the-hook quality

kay - love that card case/phone holder in the cafe shot.

Pretty boring but a perfect day for me. I'm walking Lacy, off to grab some brunch (at Starbucks, no less), then I'll return home and do cerebral work all day (write code). That's about as exciting as my life gets folks ! Though I dream of living in an exciting city such as NY, Paris or London -- but for grabbing brunch and coffee at a cooler spot (and much more interesting people watching) I doubt that I'd live much differently than I do now. I prefer quiet, solitude, and calm during my free time.
