    It helps break the ice. The younger Japanese crowd loves Tsubi with its creative markings. Sadly, I paid for the Tsubi. I got the Sugar Cane dungarees as a gift from one of my regular associates, so it sort of evens out [​IMG]

    OK - I know absolutely nothing about jeans. I have a a pair of Rekko, couple of pairs of Evisu (which I got 6 years ago because I found them sorta cool and still wear), an old pair of Lee riders, a couple pairs of Levi's... but strangely enough, my absolute favorite jeans are a pair of Volcom (yea, the surf/skate brand or whatever). They were given to me by a friend who works in streetwear in LA and had a few samples.

    Am I the only one here who has Volcom jeans? (I searched SF for the word and found zero results...)

    Does that make me crazy? [​IMG]
    Possibly...

    I didn't even know Volvom made jeans. I've seen some jackets that were reasonably cool, though.

    Almost all I ever wear are Levis Premium Skinners... Boring, I know but its the only jean I look good in. If I had the wallet, I would probably get some Selvage Regular Ralfs or some Japanese 517 repro

    My most worn are APC Rescues, 501 STF, and SSDS. I'm loving my Rescues, my first selvage jeans. I washed them too early and I won't get the dramatic fading, but man, the denim is really nice looking, wearing in great.

    Rag and Bone RB6a's. These are the best jeans I have ever owned, nothing else has fit me as well or is as well made. I thought that it was impossible to find a fit that was just right for me, I either had to go too loose or too tight, but these are perfect. I must have a second pair, maybe the selvage, or if I'm feeling a bit more adventuresome, maybe the black version.

    I'm a state employee - I do maintenance on a/v and computers in the local courthouses. As a side job, I cater to Japanese models and photographers who visit Hawaii to do video and photo shoots - usually I secure rental cars, hotel rooms, or get clearance to shoot in private locations. The girls are insanely skinny, and everyone comes packed with great denims that even my girlfriend can't fit in! The last photographer had on a pair of Eternal 811s that looked totally broken in. He wasn't my size - phooey. Well, summer's the busiest time, so hopefully I'll get to snag something good this season [​IMG]

    I'm not very knowledgeable about Eternals, but I would be happy knowing that they can be bought in distressed condition! The pair I looked at had whiskering and folds all over, and some nice wear on the rear pockets.

    #1 on my wish list this year. Pair that with a Loopwheeler top (#2 on my list) and I'm in heaven! [​IMG]

    coldrice, thanks for the links concerning LW in another thread! I read up on it this morning and for the first time I'm excited about looking for a hoodie [​IMG]
