I am really confused and need to figure out what is going on in here...

here are my older greasers that I wear probably 5 days a week, got a hole by the waist and another one by the cuff that I need to get repaired

@swif1is that your secret blend of soaking soap? A dash of pinnacle, a few squirts of lotion and an entire bottle of isopropyl. Stir violently.

Hahaha I saved a few bottles of liquor to help with this stuff. Other items had some weight so as long as the jeans remain submerged.

@swif1 @glorydays my replacement bravestars just came in the mail. 

 

35s fit like a glove. Slim taper. They feel tight but I think it's just how stupid thick this 15 oz denim is. Scared to presoak. If there is any shrinkage these bad boys will be unwearable. Im gonna wear them around the house all day tomorrow to see if I can break them in and wear them down a little bit.

That's fucking great.

 

I agree, you should wear them all day to stretch them out. Soaking would shrink them for sure, so wearing them before the soak would shrink back to its initial size.

Perfect. Then they will get worn all day before getting wet. The only issue Im having so far is squatting. It's not a deal breaker but it's kinda in my dna. Im hoping a full day of lunges will help out.

 

nah dont worry, that bitch will stretch out

They feel good. It took a while to get used to but they are coming along and all the creases are setting in nicely. 

 

If it were me, i would actually sleep with the jeans on to really get them to conform to your legs.

 

Then tomorrow put them in the water

I've been in a different dimension this past week and a half or whatever. Went on an insane (bad) shopping spree and more shit I'm going to cop primarily from Japan. Found a pair of MIJ SLP D01 black raws from fucking 2013 that's essentially deadstock. I'm so over the fucking moon, bitch I ain't coming back. I have my eyes on a pair of 2013 D02's that look to be near DS but I think imma go the Celine route. The measurements on the replica Celine's in my size are straight NT cuts and fuck all that. 

 

Found and instacopped a pair of DS resin-coated DH that got me touching myself as well (had a pair but sold it once I found these). I plan to mail them out to get some heavy work done once I figure out which jeans I want the measurements to mirror.  

 

Found and copped a pair of raw MIJ DH pre-KJ. Probably the last pair currently that I can find online when searching the reference number. They're 100% cotton and the same model I have albeit probably from the final season based on the features. Called the boutique in Beverly Hills and their system sounded like it was about to fucking crash when the SA had to switch to the legacy system to look up the ancient ass reference number. Called the outlet then the flagship store in Manhattan only to be routed to fucking customer service in France????!! At any rate, she said she'll try to search for it but it was discontinued in 2016. 

 

Also have my eye on some pre-distressed SLP's atm. Fuck. My girl flying in for a month in two weeks. I ain't sending shit from the warehouse in Japan until she leaves LMAO. 

 

Oh yeah, copped some pre-distressed DH denim as well. 

 

I want to say all this was triggered because a dude who copped a pair of jeans from me literally wants 90% of my jeans. I'm hoping he fits them all although there is are some that I'll be sad to let go, but when you lose weight, It's time to accept it and let them go and start over. 

 

And tbh, I was going to go back to some raw selvedge local brand shit until I came across the MIJ DH's.    

 

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind.

I hope this dude buys all your shit man.

Thanks, bro. Was just talking to him and he sounds like it will!

 

@glorydaysI found a pair of MIJ's that are closely similar to the 3Sixteen Shadow Selvedge that look to be DS. Just confirmed the season they're from so birdman.gif. White weft but the warp was dipped blue then black. My office chair is going to look sick hahahah

Yezzir. The balaclava completes the fit. And yo. RIP clean white shoes. I always found denim jackets difficult to pair, which is probably why I don't own one, but it goes well with this fit. The peek-a-boo from tee is fabbbbb.

Just picked up the raw black denim from Celine in the slim cut and didn't realize it until I got back to the hotel. 🤦🏻‍♂️. Similar cut as my FW13 D01 raw blacks but these are 100% cotton so I'm probably going to keep them. I was wondering why I could barely move in the fucking thing haha. Weave/Weight is heavier than SLP, that's for sure. 

 

Going to hit up the SA about the skinny jawns tomorrow.

 

I wasn't aware how much weight I tried on the jeans; 31/32 from a 34.

 

No rivets and outseam features a flat-felled seam.
