    What the fuck, Snake? You're banished from the land!1 Me and PP will lead as two kings :( I think he's away, though, checking out that potato famine in Idaho.

    This is a very troubling development indeed, I thank my VP * for bringing it to my attention. I'm afraid disciplinary actions might be in order. I will now consult with my VPs, concerned parties will be notified of our collegial decision shortly.




    * or was I demoted ?

    for those who asked, the otter-waxed jeans lost the pine-sol smell within 3 days. im very happy with the results, especially on my pbj 007s.

    Those look nice. I'm about to do the same thing, but I wasn't sure about the sole. Is that shoe polish, or leather dye?

    I always thought the yellow stitching on Docs were polyester, and therefore impossible dye. Guess I'm wrong though. Anyone have any cut up t shirts worth sharing? I've fucked up on every attempt so far.

    sure now they release them again after i do it myself haha. anyway, mine are 1490, which they don't have in all black so I don't mind.
    to anyone wondering, I used black acrylic paint.

    lookin for some DIY advice.

    I want to chop the sleeves off this thing and attach it to a very minimal wool body or something. The idea being that then I can layer it underneath my vests, or any other jacket that I chop the sleeves off of. Any suggestions for garments I could possibly thrift that would act as a subtle body for the leather sleeves?

    I was thinking something like melton wool, but I'm not sure. it should probably have no collar, or a moto collar at the most. something thin enough to layer under a chosen garment.
