Hello all denimheads, new model from my favourite denim label! Eternal 882. Single selvedge. Regular straight silhouette. I’m very fascinated on the heavily oxidised copper rivets 😮 Images credits to Pronto and Rakuten.
How time flies! Eternal is 20 years old. And I thought I’m wearing a 15th Anniversary while writing this blog now. This new pair has so many exciting features. Basically it’s an artisan’s jeans. Hand made distress with a new twist. Look at it yourself.
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.
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
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.
Any changes on my denim? Some fadings on distress areas like side of knees. Confirmed honeycombs. mild whiskers and sick hard line on leg cuffs. My top was Levi’s 1955 7oz Sawtooth Denim Shirt and Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. Will capture some closeup soon.
