I feel sluggish. At least at the moment. Worship practice, cleaning up my home, watching Ruth & Genessee film their video entry to Amazing Race, Dodgers exhibition game, late-night nonsensical traffic and The Hat + Orange Bang to finish out the day. Here are some photos.

A beautifully presented short film that you might’ve seen before, but I watched for the first in its entirety today. The tag for the film reads:
Every day: so many opportunities to connect…What if you took just one?
I feel like I make so many fleeting connections on a daily level. If either one of us were to take the initiative, it could turn into something so much more worthwhile. All I really need to do is to back away from my reclusive tendencies and be more willing to let these connections take their course.

/WOTD/ peculate PEK-yuh-leyt, verb: to steal money or goods entrusted to one; embezzle
Towards the end of the day during ELM‘s Black Friday sale, one customer thought that he could go into the changing room and peculate the goods he was trying on.
I woke up waaaaay early today. Mia woke me up by pawing me, notifying me that she’d shaken off the last remnants of her slumber (I was couching it, and she was sleeping at the foot of the couch) and was ready to get the day going. It’s too bad that getting the day going involved waking up at approximately 6:57 AM PST and an urgent desire to expel the contents of her puppy bladder. I’m guessing those paws tha woke me up weren’t an expression of her affection for me, but rather a warning that she had to go and she had to go now! I groggily sauntered over to where she had already begun to piss, urged her to stop, took her outside, where she was finally able to finish. I guess you can’t always win. A half-puddle of urine is better than a full puddle of urine, any day of the week, especially Tuesdays.
Back to the actual purpose of this blog – the denims. While Mia was playing around in the backyard, I had some time to shoot my denims, which just had their 3 month anniversary this past Friday.

Details of the front creases.
Details of the ring fade in the coin pocket. I used to wear that ring, but it’s made out of titanium, so it didn’t really adapt with the weather well and I felt that it was messing with my finger bone.
Details of the wallet fade.

Met up with my No Numbers homeboys to get crack-a-lacking on the project and it seems we’ve got some cool stuff coming. At least that’s the plan. Now to execute.
Here are some shots of my buddy Ryan in his Somets from B.I.G.S.H
. Low-rise crispy goodness at its best.
And here’s my fit pic. Not much in terms of wear, as you can see.
Shout to my naggers at GDFHT
! Thanks for a fun night eating and catching up!

Not much going on with the jawnz right now. I think I’ll make this blog a denim/my own interest blog so I’ll have more stuff to blog about since I only have 1 pair of jawnz I’m working on (can’t afford more due to sad times). I can also post shots of my fellow jawnheadz jeans also. It’ll be like a co-evolution blog.
Here’s a crotch shot I took on a hike with my family today.

I’ve worn my BSPs (not every single day) for about 13 days now, and here’s an update on how they’re doing.
I took a pic of their hairy goodness with sunlight seeping in through the window. Notice the indigo-colored thread used for the arcuates. They’ll look nice once the denim starts to fade.
Here’s the denim laid out in natural light. You can see where they’ve stretched and where the combs/whiskers have start to set.
Orange Selvedge! I got them hemmed/chain-stitched at The Stronghold
in Venice last week. I took off about 3 inches, and the Union Special chain-stitch machine worked its magic in under 15 minutes.
Some belt evo. This hefty belt from Tanner
was natural before I oiled it with mink oil and let it age. Oh, and I got a little thinner in the process, hence the belt notch moving.
