    They're on my hips, you n00b.

    StyleForum is about (1) unlearning, (2) then forgetting, and then (3) the sweet sleep of death.

    Sorry, but I'm keeping the crack under wraps.

    The one in back, that is.

    Like this, Vox:

    I would guess about five feet for the bounce-a-quarter-off-it test.

    Maybe six feet.

    Toss carefully, though, lest you lose the quarter down the....slot.

    Thank you. I have a second R&B hunt coat in black oilcloth...is that the one that you have?

    - B


    No, in wool as well but I know the oilcloth one you're referring to.

    Hah! Now, I follow you.
    I think those look really good...maybe just a tad long.
    - B


    Great. Sandwiched. Agree on the length.

    ^ How does one end up photographed in such condition, if not intentionally? She deserves the "attention whore" picture (and, yes, I just want to see someone post it).

    vox those look good, but you clearly need to wear them more!

    ...
    I love the R&B coat, like the EG jacket, and can stand the NdG coat.

    Yeah, that's completely right.

    Unfortunately, they are all going to take awhile...I have something like sixteen pairs of raw Japanese denim that I've gotten over the last four years, I usually only wear jeans two or three times a week, and almost never in the summer.

    I'll be all set for the denim episode of Antiques Roadshow 2038:

    Me: "I've brought in a collection of early 21st Japanese denim."

    Chrono (puts on reading glasses, adjusts his Slanket): "These are pristine! They literally have no wear marks!" (reaches over) "Look! They're still hard to unbutton!"

    Unlike vox with his 16 (?!), I've only got two raw, so I would gladly make room / budget for this. I missed out during the initial collab run.
