Mega attaches the first MBB flasher


Then the professional showed him how it's done...


So we locked him out for showing off  :P


Up close and personal with the flasher


and with the patch


Mountains of beautiful MBB's

Giles - I had the heaviest hangover in recent memory this morning after drinking far too much of your Belgian beer. 
It has to be said, I stuck to coffee and lemonade today, but I did cook up a lovely breakfast (at about 11:30....)....

Yeah, thanks G and P for letting me share this great Breakfast!! Specially cooked by the big famous:





It was just an amazing weekend for me in a real great raw denim paradise and I have just returned back home at my regular place on earth

Perhaps I should rent the old office from G as my new living appartment just with some content left there for me. I would take the stuff over for free and would build it up as my personal decoration. Or I could just live out of the boxes!!!

Some updates from this great event from my site as well. Probably most stuff is already here

Me approaching the raw denim paradise:



mega on the way to give me the hemming shock







I had to look away, since every single cutting in a pair of jeans is breaking my heart.

My new pants of course will stay untouched from water and any hemming as usual,...

Thanks , yeah it was real fun:

Easter Sunday was such a beautiful morning, so I decided to go for a one hour jogging with my old underwear jeans, denim jacket and sandals and my little camera:



After breakfast we went with Paulas and Giles Easter egg on to the beach to smash it with rocks:









The time was just flying away and I had to leave this raw denim paradise behind me But I'll come back!!!




Thanks G for your unbelievable gift for the Jeansmuseum. We have now a proper background for taking all the denim inventory pics.




And thanks again to all those great people who worked so hard on this project!!!


A special thanks to IH member Licorice Noose, who's well loved raw denim project is hanging in G's office. Obviously he really nows, how to break in some heavy weight raw denim stuff the hard way

It took me ages and I had to check them out for 3 times to burn all those millions of fantastic fading results for ever in to my brain.

I can just say congrats to this highest level of authentic fadings transforming them in to a Holy Grail Status.

Sorry for spoiling this thread, but I have to bring them back:

Mean as pic's, thanks for sharing guys. You got the dodgey deliverys, the hunt, the finding, the MBB's, the hemming, the Hui (gathering), old friends/new friends, food and a few beers, brekkie, the massive egg. What a few days.

Epic stuff
Have an awesome 2017 IH Peeps.
Anyone have a IHSH 20 - Blue XXL for sales - I can only wish and hope



Peace

Sorry Danny for messing up with names. Just corrected it.

Was great to see you there and it's a pitty that the time has gone so fast.

Perhaps I see you some time in Zurich
