It took me at least five times around to figure out what was happening in that GIF. A little dense, sometimes.

My fiancee declared that she may never care to watch another episode of GoT after this weekend.  I think she'll come back around to find out what's going to happen...

Those are so nice.  They've been added to the neverending list of products that I want to buy from Iron Heart/Triple works, but can't really afford. Geez.

Thanks!  I really like them, too.  But I don't wear them near as much as my other jeans because the waist and top-box are just too big.  I'm really nostalgic about this pair because they were the first ones besides my superblacks that I wore in from new.

Lindland's Cordarounds, size 38 -- $50 shipped.  These are unique, handmade in San Francisco.  Fine wale, lightweight khaki horizontal corduroy with contrasting light blue patterned waistband and pocket bags.  They have some staining on the hem, but are otherwise in good condition, except for a couple loose threads. 

waist: 19.5
thigh:  14.5
inseam: 34

PRPS western flannel, size S -- $30 shipped.  This is a beautiful yellow, burnt orange, red, and black ombre unbrushed flannel that's hard to appreciate in photos.  I've worn and washed the heck out of it, and it has one small hole on the lower back along the seam.  Two of the snaps also need to be repaired, they have come off their backing, but I will include them.  Should be an easy fix. Chest p2p is: 20"

Vintage Karman lightweight western -- $25 shipped

p2p: 20"

Belts handmade, by me, from recycled fire hose! $30 shipped, custom made to your size, 1 1/2" wide.  Metal center-bar buckles with brushed-nickel finish, or black powder-coated heel-bar buckles available.

The items that include shipping will be mailed from Mexico City, via Correos de Mexico. Their regular delivery service sometimes takes a few weeks, but always arrives eventually.  If you prefer to use MexPost, which is their version of priority mail, shipping will be a bit more expensive.

Thanks for looking!

I haven't ever made a foray into the professional world, as the thought of sitting at a desk, attending meetings, and beauracracy have turned me off enough to not even try. I've mostly enjoyed my life behind the bar and on the floor of restaurants. The money/number of working hours ratio is very good, and I love being on my feet, and interacting with people. Of course my chosen career has sort of a limited lifespan. I may not feel the same about it when I'm fifty.

Man, I'm so sorry for your loss. I would be upset, too.

Looks great!  What'd you cut the tire with?

Almost completely off topic, but I love your probe droid pint glass!

Damn, TnA so glad she's okay! The same thing happened to my fiancee not too long ago.  All of us can thank our lucky stars!

It's hard to judge from the pics.  I think that you would have a really tight fit, and like Max said, the superblack denim is not very forgiving.  Nothing has ever bruised my hipbones more than 9301s, tts, and those have a comparatively "relaxed" top block.

That's sick, d666! 

I can't speak with complete authority, but I helped a glassblower friend build a new furnace one winter in exchange for some lessons.  Blowing glass is a really immediate art.  If you're really confident, and sure of what result you want, to blow and shape the main body of a bong like that could happen in less than an hour--start to finish. I've seen dudes lampwork bowls in like, fifteen minutes.  The part of the process that takes a long time is annealing, which is letting your finished pieces cool slowly in a really hot oven that slowly reduces temperature, so that the piece won't crack or explode from cooling too quickly.  I think 24 hours minimum to anneal blown glass.

Again, fine work d666.

I've got a pair of these on the way, and I'm crossing my fingers the fit will work out. (Thanks again, Arlo!)

In the meantime, I found some pics of evo on Darahkubiru that are really interesting, and thought I'd share them.  The subdued gray-ish purple tone on the thighs looks really old-timey to me, for some reason.  If the OP sees this, I hope you don't mind me using your pics!

Give 'em a week or two and they should stretch out to be just right. Enjoy!

I have (almost) infinite patience for customer service people, having worked in restaurants for so long, but rudeness is where I draw the line. You can eff-up and be dumb all day long, but cop an attitude, and I lose my patience real quick.
