Here comes a photo dump!

Festival of Lights/First Friday's of downtown Greensboro 

Also, the Wrangler Pop-Up Shop is also today through the weekend.

Yes.  That is a cafe/spa dedicated to cats called the Crooked Tail.  No, I didn't go in (allergic).  I'm a dog lover though!

The Wrangler pop up was nice.  Mix between Cone Denim, vintage, and unique.

First Fridays are the first Friday of every month when all the shops on Elm St. And Eugene open later to the public.

Hopefully, this won't be my last First Friday in Greensboro as I will be moving shortly to Charlotte, NC.

Thanks for sharing mlwdp, that looks like a good evening.

Is that your bulldog? Also, what did you think of the Wrangler pop-up? I think the new White Oak Cone denim ones (the expensive ones!) all looked a bit slim online.

Not my bulldog but apparently he was a "celeb" of the festival due to the attention he was getting from everybody there!

Wrangler Pop-Up was nice but too crowded as it was running during the street festival.  Very hard to have good convos with the staff due to the crowd coming in.  I probably should have went in on Saturday since it was open for two days.  I'm sure Wrangler made a lot of money though due to the crowds coming in from the festivities.  Marketing geniuses!

The White Oak Denim they had on display was really nice.  The staff there were wearing most of it.  A Hemming station and changing rooms were in the back too.  The vintage Made in USA collection there was a goldmine so kudos to anybody who was lucky enough to buy from it.  The prices overall in the store were reasonable such as the White Oak jacket I posted was $275.

Funny thing about this was that I had no idea Wrangler was doing this pop-up until I saw Antlers and Antiques posting it on their instagram on the same day.  I'm hoping my shop will carry their line.

So the obvious choice for me is to head to the local find a cosy corner and try a few drams, read the papers and surf the net.20180106_141620.thumb.jpg.e26254df98e3e1eceda067bca3a99fe6.jpg

Sequel to Wrangler/Hudson's Hill 

So today I drove from Charlotte to Greensboro (don't judge me, visiting friends) for the hemming of my Trophy 1605BK and met Evan, owner of Hudson Hill.  His singer is still at Wrangler so I had my denim chain stitched hemmed there.  Got a chance to talk the owner of Hudson's about the projects he has going on with Wrangler, some exciting new projects regarding Wrangler and White Oak Denim, which unfortunately I swore I wouldn't spill on here out of respect.  However, expect some interesting items from Wrangler this summer and next year.  We also talked about White Oak Plant closing and Huston Denim.  

Anyway, the denim turned out great!  The detail is amazing and I'll post some tidbits that we found out while hemming the denim in the Unknown Denim Thread.  Felt pretty cool to get my denim chain stitched here instead of Hudson's.  The Wrangler store is still in Greensboro, open so drop by!

posting more in a min

Sequel to Wrangler/Hudson's Hill 

FYI Proxmity Mills has some awesome projects coming up that the owner of Hudson's Hill informed he's been working!

The two White Oak Wrangler Denim you see are

Left side- Left Hand Twill-11oz

Right Side-Right Hand Twill-11oz skinny

the bad news that the Left Hand twill is only 70 pairs produced, which unfortunately there are 4 pairs left remaining, currently at the Wrangle store.  One pair is size 30, the other three pairs are size 38.  Not online so you'll have to shoot a email or call.

How to keep two kids and one big kid amused in nothern England in winter when it's close to freezing outside??

Inspired by a book on old British steam railways, last week's answer was a trip to the Bolton Abbey to Embasy steam railway. Open commercially from 1888 to 1965, it was part of the steam train revolution that changed Britain in many ways, not least in opening up the country to the masses and prompting the rise of seaside resorts in the last century (many now sadly in decline). Nowadays, the line is run by steam train enthusiasts and a decent heritage day out.

Even a bit of (erm) 1st class blue velvet clad carriages with the private sliding doors, obligatory condensation and that warning sign that always makes me think of Vivienne in The Young Ones (UK comedy gold from the 80s)... found here... https://youtu.be/tQslnmcHOeM...

Shame about the poor quality photos but hopefully you get the picture...

Hardly a charming photo, but my girlfriend kindly arranged my jeans into this nice little leaning tower yesterday. From top to bottom: Roy Big Bro 2, Warehouse 900, Samurai S511NBK, Flat Head 2001, Samurai S710XX, Strike Gold 1109, Oni x Naked & Famous Weird Guy, APC Petit Standard. All that's missing are my Stevenson's, which are currently with me as I continue to procrastinate on my schoolwork...

Last weekend, as I now live in Charlotte and no longer in Greensboro, I went to the annual Congregation Motorcycle and roadster show.  Took a couple pics of some bikes and roadsters.  All of wore was pretty much a white Hanes tshirt, my Trophy 1605bk, and my Whites nothing really special.  Came out to support a shop owner from Winston Salem who had a booth.  Saw a few 1%ers, some local and out of state shops, a few MCs, and some helmet brands like Biltwell, and clothing brands like Iron and Resin.  Too many booths and people to count other than catching up with a few! A lot of motorcycles and roadsters were at the show.

I saw a Japanese writer for one of the Japanese motorcycle magazines taking photos and interviews while I was there.  As what is popular in their motorcycle culture, he was wearing those "striped old timey prisoner pants" that you normally see them wearing while on their cycles.  Didn't take a pic of that though.

photo dump!
