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: Pole Climbing

This is not pole dancing. This is the my workout. Pole climbing built hands, arms and legs muscles. It is actually inspired by the movement of monkey. Watch Gregory McElroy Chinese Pole video. Everyone should try it. I called this place my Jungle Gym. Fresh air with nature the best of both world a snazzy gym can’t afford 🙂 By the way it is 6 months old to my new buddy Eternal 888. A big celebration is coming soon. Size 31 / 1 soak / worn daily.

Time is slipping by… My Eternal 888 is already 3 months of wearing. I wore to work everyday. My work doesn’t toil in the sun, so this new buddy wouldn’t age so soon. But check the tarnished coin pocket and inner copper rivet, they are beginning their beautiful work of wearing!
