    I got one of those pairs from our friend Tweedydon and just gave them a soak last weekend. They can still stand up on their own. Incredible pair of jeans, but those buttons are tough little buggers.

    They are a TOUGH pair of jeans. I wear them a few times a week and they are softening up. I got mine from Tweedydon as well.

    I’m among a group of retired guys who meet for coffee at B-Bop’s Cafe most weekday mornings. One of our “members” is now taking ukulele lessons and, today, he brought his uke to show us what he’s learned. After rocking through a rendition of “Tiny Bubbles” he handed the uke to me. I play guitar, but until today, I had never tried my hand at a ukulele. And yes, Mildred, the frets are much closer together than those on my HD-28. I learned pretty quickly that soprano ukuleles are definitely instruments for people with tiny hands. They probably sell well in Washington, DC.

    I’m wearing my 1986 Orchard G-1. It’s one of my favorite jackets, but it sure didn’t make me play any better.

    An old Harris Tweed, over a Harris jacket. Warmed up some this afternoon so for squirrel skinning duty I got into the Montgomery Ward unit

    It worked very well, so I think I'll designate it as my official rodent butchering jacket.

    Have a good one,

    Ha ha, I think you could be right Thor. This one would have matched the jacket maybe.

    But this one might have worked too,

    Good to hear from you, since that means you've survived the storm. I hope all of the other east coast denizens are okay.

    My favorites. The black jacket and hat are the best.

    Quick question, which lining is relatively warmer between cotton drill and regurla light tartan wool in Aero? Today I wear my highwayman(light tartan wool lining) with only a t shirt underneath,it didn't bother me at 40 degree.
     
  13. Cotton drill isn't that warm because it's weave is quite breathable. In fact I suggest that it's Aero's chilliest lining on a cold or windy day.

    As far as I know there is nothing warmer between them. But there are a lot warmer than both.

    Alright last week it was -5°C and a windchill of -12°C
    Not normal for the south of France...
    The B3 was a welcome addition.
    This week, we had some nice weather, enough to wear my Kensington.

    This looks great!
    I was wondering, doesn’t the Himel Shinki evolve creases on the sleeves? It’s just that when I look at SF‘s our your jacket, they look like new all the time. So I’m actually wondering if he uses a different batch.

    While I can understand people to desire their leather jackets to look new (it must be hard to not bend your arms though), for me a worn look is what makes a leather jacket look great! And those sleeve creases are maybe my favorite part of this worn look.

    Isn't your jacket made from Shinki as well?
