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

501XX Gemini vinegar wash

P1020428 P1020427 P1020419 P1020425

It’s been a long time since the last wash I have lost count. Must be one year ago. This is S&W white vinegar wash or more of a soak actually. I didn’t scrub or brush it in the vinegar, more of rinsing that’s all. Check the colour of rinse was yellow instead of green. This 1966 model is my favourite 501 for weekend wearing. Its slim silhouette is unlike the 1944 or 1955 model; which is less formal, is great for sport. Worn since 2009. 6 years old. Size 30/32. 9 washes. Inspired by NASA “Spacewalk of Gemini”.
