This picture deserves a posting on the NDH Blog. Haha, I just love the picture. Not just because it’s a pair of Momotaro Jeans standing on their own in the snow (WTF = Welcome To Finland), but because this just shows the creativity and passion that Project Wear and Tear is all about. Well done Tuomas.
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.
36 weeks of hard work are starting to show on the surface of this Japanese denim masterpiece. The marks and fine details are tellign a story of its own and the more I wear the jeans the more they feel like a part of a story of my own. This week the jeans have been put to the biggest test since last winter as I have been wearing them on daily basis while doing the renovation on our Helsinki apartment. My goodness, the amount of rubble, stone dust, sand, plaster etc. I’m sure you can imagine the situation. Well the work is almost done now, the place is looking pretty damn good after we finished painting the apartment yesterday.
The jeans have gone through a plenty in the past few weeks. The hottest summer in Finland for ages (probably in the past century), moving, BBQs, work plus all sorts of random stuff and no washes. In a couple of weeks the jeans will get their much needed wash before more trips that are sure to leave their marks on the surface of the denim.
What’s good everyone?
Today was spent lounging, eating good food and enjoying the sun with few gin tonics to cool things down. Now back on my blog. I did not post anything yesterday due to the very hectic day moving from one apartment to another. The kitchen/bathroom renovation drew us out of casa de Stark and such a move usually involves plenty of work. I was basically carrying stuff the whole day.
Happy Midsummer! I’m still on holiday mode and I can’t even remember when was the last time I spent few days without plugging in my notebook. I have kept checking my emails and such but since I’m still on holiday this 6 month mark of my Copper Label project will be production of my trusted iPhone.
Good evening to you and yours!
Today has been one for the books. I mean casa de Chao-Kuisma is looking like a refugee camp (not that I have ever seen one outside the TV) and it will look like this until we move to our temporary apartment to escape the incoming bathroom/piping renovation. Basically they’re going to rip the pipes off the bathroom and unfortunately our kitchen and replace them to new ones. This however means that we are outta here, since we’re not too keen on staying here without electricity and water for the next three months. It’s all good, it’s just three months right?
Sundays are usually pretty damn good. I mean I’ve been lounging the whole day. My biggest achievements of the day have been couple of emails and cooking pancakes for my wife (and myself of course). So how to start the Momotaro Jeans Copper Label update of the day? I think it’s best to approach this chronologically with all starting on Friday 4th of June.
First off, today was the first day in almost two years that I called in sick. I stayed at home and took it easy the whole day. I won’t skip my blog post though. The day went by watching Hong Kong TVB drama series and resting. And it paid off. I feel a lot better already. Naturally there were some work related things I handled via my mobile office but mostly just resting.
Super Sunday behind us and I’ve had a rather nice weekend. For those wondering where have we been as there has been only few posts lately, yours truly has been multitasking for the past few weeks on another level. In addition to this, I decided just to take an evening or two off, haha.
