Train tracks, whiskers, honeycombs, roping and vertical fading to name a few of them. Will show more details soon :-O

Here is one of my favourite Levi’s 501XX 1966 model wearing to work. Hasn’t been washing since a year ago, so far he has no odour. Light weight denim with the tapered silhouette. Worn since 2009. 7 years 10 months old. Size 30/32. 9 washes. Hand-painted NASA “Spacewalk of Gemini”. Not forgetting my beloved trucker jacket from my late father.

eternal 883 (10th wash)

Hello to my retired old beloved buddy Eternal 883. I couldn’t leave him sitting at home and mould. Somehow I placed him indoor and folded was a bad idea. The 10th vinegar wash was necessary. The 9th wash was on March 2015! This week I saw a great denim repair master in Osaka on Instagram. I was thinking bringing my buddy back again hahaha. OK for the record: Size 30/34///since 2011///1 soak///10 vinegar washes///14.5oz Kurashiki selvedge denim

At work last month for an OOH advertising installation for Fisherman’s Friend along Orchard iON tunnel. It was 12am to 5am with my buddy. I’m glad it was mildly air conditioned during the installation 🙂

The Flat Head sawtooth denim shirt

I love sawtooth denim shirt. This is based on 1955 Levi’s model, but in 12oz selvedge and made in Japan! I personally owned a 8oz LVC sawtooth made in China version that I’ve worn daily as outer jacket in my office. I shall post mine over here soon 🙂 Read more at selfedge.com
