eternal 888 denim diary: bukit batok nature park

Bukit Batok Nature Park. A small park that packed with so many surprises. Spotted Thrasher birds, Temasek shrimps and of course with the tranquil quarry. My Eternal 888 is 1 year 10 months old//1 soak//2 wash//worn 5 days per week// This stage most fadings are obvious. Train tracks, whiskers, honeycombs, roping and vertical fading to name a few of them. Will show more details soon :-O

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

eternal 888 denim diary: stair climbing exercise

Moving forward in my stair climbing training in jeans in 2017. I’ve been using the long step ( 3 steps per stride) for the past 3 months. Beginning was tough but after a month it’s much easier. It’s amazing one can reached the top so much faster than escalator! You have to try it to believe it. So I’ve been taking lesser ride on escalator. This exercise works harder for my honeycombs and whiskers and great for my legs muscles. My Eternal 888 is 1 year 6 months old /Worn 5 days/week/1 soak 2 wash. Eternal 888 regular cutting is a perfect fit for this kind exercise. Hope I can inspire you.

eternal 888 denim diary: details

This is 1 year 5 months old Japanese denim. My favourite Eternal 888. Of course checking out the recent fading after the 2nd vinegar wash after 9 months of wearing. The Hiroshige’s inspired Tokaido and Evening Snow, Asakusa which have obvious fading in paint. Heavy vertical fading on thigh areas that are so beautiful like snowing in Japan! Fraying at both back pockets bottom corner. Impression on my P.P is distinctive now, but not define actually. Overall, I am happy 🙂
