Eternal 883 walking with dinosaur

It’s all happened at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve 3rd trip. it was high tide and most monitor lizards were up the land in search of stranded fishes. End of the trip I have encountered 5 dinosaurs! Ok my dear old Eternal 883 is coming to 5 years old very soon.Even though only wearing once a week it’s a big deal for me to enjoy these beautiful Japanese denim jeans. Let me think how to celebrate his 5th year 🙂

4years 9months old buddy

Hey my semi retired buddy is 4 years 9 months old. Only wear it on weekends now.If you are first time reading this, I wore it everyday faithfully for the first 2 years, followed by 5 days/week ritual. Ceased washing after the 9th wash. It seems to age by itself actually….like vintage wine. Sometimes I do let him wind dry near window. One day I shall frame it like an art piece 🙂

ETERNAL 888 DENIM DIARY: sungei buloh

The best of wild Singapore so far. Better than Pulau Ubin! I had such a close encounter with yellow spotted mudskippers and a young saltwater crocodile. It is a park well managed by Npark Singapore. My Eternal 888 has enjoyed many great outdoors before going for the first wash soon!
