Time flies, Project Wear and Tear kicked off over a year ago and based on the comments and feedback, it has been a fun project that has produced some really, really impressive results. That alone is enough to make this project a success. The major following throughout the project is just an icing on the cake. The project has progressed to the last stretch and we’re letting you, our audience decide the winner. Although I feel everyone participating in the project is a winner, we’re still sticking to the original plan and crowning the winner in one month’s time. Thus steer towards the Project Wear and Tear site and vote for your favorite from the top three. You can vote using the poll on the top right corner of the site. Right below search and above our support logos.
The end of the week went by swiftly and my blog updates are pretty much been on draft level for the past few days. However this is bound to change now as I feel I must write a nice little summary on my Vintage 0901 project. As mentioned the project came into an end as you guys voted for the change. The newest project is Copper Label G003-MB and that project is well under way. But still I will share another set of pictures of these wonderful Vintage Label jeans before putting the focus on the new project.
Today was a snow day, and I hope I have me a … snow night? Yes, today was indeed a snowy, winter day. Even Helsinki got covered in snow.
It’s 10pm now and it’s still snowing.
Back with an update on the 0901 project. Basically I could be calling this edition the XVIII-XX, but for clarity and basically just for the sound of it, I’m calling it week XX, for that it is. Twenty weeks in the most wear I have every put to any of my jeans to this date. What can I say, I do love my jeans.
My Momotaro project is moving ahead at a nice pace. Last week I had a chance to hit the beach and enjoy the summer weather. Well the whole trip was a bit extempore and I did not have my shorts along. No worries, cuff the jeans and voila you have a pair of shorts, heh. Well it was all good. Some might shuck at the idea of wearing heavy oz denim during the summer, but hey each their own. Wearing my jeans in the sand is all good, not something I would probably think of straight away but it’s a wear and tear project after all, heh. (continue reading…)
Once again slight delay in posting this stuff as I spent my day in Tampere, Finland. So shout out to Tampere!
Now back to business. Early on I had planned to spend like six months without throwing my jeans into the washing machine, well that came into a halt last Saturday at the end of week ten on my current denim project. I know, I know, I should have worn them longer before introducing the jeans to the washing machine but could felt like it was about time to wash em’.
Busy week once again but hey that’s OK. On the real, I’ve been waiting to see Lakers in the NBA finals since last year and g’damn, they’re doing their thing. Now, I do have to apologize for showing such favoritism. What can I say, always been a Laker fan. Well I know I’m not the only one. For instance Undefeated (known Laker fans) recently launched T-shirt and caps in Laker colors in the spirit of the NBA finals.
Sorry for the delay in posting stuff lately but I went all out and had me a two day vacation, heh. I like to live dangerous you see…
We finally got the site updated for the Spring season. Next up, summer! The weathers are getting better as well and the cool breeze is almost gone. Well the early mornings are still a bit cold but hey it is what it is.
One week went by on wings. Partially due to the Easter holidays, it’s an obvious fact that holidays go by real fast. Well nothing wrong with routine either. It’s good to be back in business. I’ve had a good chance to start wearing in the chosen pair of Momotaro Vintage Label 0901′s.
