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
It’s hot afternoon at MacRitchie Reservoir. Nice view. Spectacular. But the walk to reach was tough. Anyway good for my Eternal 888. 1 year 7 months worn 5 days per week 1 soak 2 washes.
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.
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.
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
One of my favourite selvedge denim jeans cutting. 1966 model has a tighter silhouette which kick started the modern style. Worn since 2009. 7 years old. Size 30/32. 9 washes. Inspired by NASA “Spacewalk of Gemini”.
