Yeah, what a crazy idea. That's why we wear our work boots while working in those mines (not the city), why we wear our aviator leather jackets flying planes, our cafe racers while we're on our Harleys and our dive watches while scuba diving!

Regardless of the heritage of things, we all treat them differently these days.

Going to a 'new (to me) restaurant in Cambridge w new Juniper Walts and Alt Weins

Which restaurant? Some great places have come into Cambridge over the past decade or so.

Also dry cleaning denim and other cotton pants can really depend on where you live and your feelings on cotton trousers. There's a world class dry cleaner a 10-minute walk from my home that charges $5 to dry clean denim, and another place nearby is $3. That I think is cheap for dry cleaning and worth the small upcharge from regular laundry to keep all my cotton pants from fading -- denim, rivets, and Walts alike. Obviously many of us have come to loathe the ostentatious denimhead with his talk of high-contrast fades, brah, and his sanforized sanctimony. But it just bugs me when cotton pants fade after a few months, so I'm happy to throw my local perc wizards a few bucks now and then.

You in the area?! I did Alden and Harlow and had an amazing meal! It was exquisite.

Good spot for sure. They've done a nice job

Everyone should clean their trousers as they like, of course!

best thing I've eaten at Alden & Harlow was the charred chicken hearts.

Do you live in the area? Any other recommendations?

For higher end dining I recommend Puritan & Co in Inman Square and Bondir in between Inman and Kendall Square.

For great authentic northern Chinese, Qingdao Garden (back of the menu). For insanely great takeout Indian, Guru in Somerville. And Muqueca has the best Brazilian food.

Thank you so much! I've been to the Bondir in Concord and enjoyed it.

More important to me than avoiding or inducing sick fadez, is that I want my clothes to still fit after laundering them. Sure we can cite railway workers from the early 1900s, but I guarantee that they didn't spend (their equivalent) of hundreds of dollars on rare Japanese denim with unique selvedge stripe patterns. My justification of spending extra money (than your regular department-store-going-citizen) is that I am buying items of higher quality, that will last longer. This point becomes moot if I render the clothes unwearable due to shrinking, which has happened to me in the past.

Thank you for the recommendations! I will trek up from South End to check these out.

@wigglr No not in the area but I used to be. (I'm in NYC.) Will be back up for a week or so in a few months. Thanks for the great words about Alden & Harlow and the other spots, though! Have to take some eaters with very high standards out so it's good to know. My understanding is that Craigie on Main was the catalyst for a lot of the new place s in the Boston area, but TBH I liked it better when it was the Craigie Street Bistro, in a little space in the basement of an apartment complex. My favorite place to eat in the area is still the original 12-seat Oishii in Chestnut Hill. But I am excited to try all of these new places. Thanks also @lbrig and @rydenfan

 

If any of you visit New York, just make sure you avoid the bong water.

Hahaha! Oishii is fantastic - there's actually a sushi restaurant in Sudbury called Oishii Too (no affiliation). It's out there for most people, but I live in Weston so it's not far. They have this oyster tempura maki roll that is to DIE FOR.
