ETERNAL 888 DENIM DIARY: stair climbing

My usual stair climb with my buddy. 3 steps per stride. My denim exercise to break my Eternal 888. Obvious contrast fading after the 3rd vinegar wash. The beautiful indigo is delicious. That’s how I would describe it hahaha

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

Levi’s 501XX 1944 the most beautiful jeans in the world


Yes. Levi’s 501XX 1944 is the most beautiful denim jeans in my opinion. Backed with WWII history, laurel button, donut buttonfly, olive pocket bags to hand painted arcuate. Here in the picture photographer Bryan Goh at Bishan Park bird-watching trip.

ETERNAL 888 DENIM DIARY: atari on honeycomb

Eternal 888 (left) has bigger honeycomb than Eternal 883 (right). Both jeans in pix are 1 yr old. 883 got its atari much faster than 888 🙂 Still much to experience with my new buddy 888.


1 yr 1 mth///1 soak///1 wash///worn 5 days/week. As I promised last month here are the closeup details of this wonderful buddy. You can see sharp contrast fading “Atari” at those distress points created by my bag everyday. Train tracks are not very obvious comparing to tighter silhouette 883 was much earlier. Nevertheless honeycombs are beautiful than 883! It’s has been 6 months since last wash so slight odour now. Vinegar bath for buddy soon. Will update more next month. Photos by Canon EOS 600D.

Eternal 888 denim diary: one year old

Eternal 888 1st yr quarter frontEternal 888 1st yr rear

My Eternal 888 has come to a year! So far so comfortable. Much more roomy than Eternal 883. The look is classic so not trendy among the crowd. I’m fine because I’m a denimhead anyway hahaha. I’m happy with the honeycombs which are much more bigger from regular silhouette. Back pocket P.P impression is looking cool. Train tracks are still looking mild at this stage though. Left leg painting started fading. I will update detail closeup soon. Size:30″///1 soak 1 wash///worn 5 days per week///14.5oz selvedge denim///15thAnniversary Limited Edition
