These Days…

t1

Sudden urge came up….felt like trucker jacket with shorts….. could be the first time in my life….

First,  tried with LEVI’S 70505 cords in my favorite Muscat….

t2

Here’s a darker one…

t3

For the blue denim….I grabbed Lee 101-J.

That was a surprise…..since it had been long absent due to its uneasy short length and baggy armholes…

But found out 101-J is especially good w/shorts when sleeves rolled up…..didn’t realize that till now.

t4

Bought a new pair of work boots……since when?…..I don’t even remember…

One morning I asked a guy at gas station who’s boots he’s wearing….he said it’s Carhart…

Carhart??

t5

Looks really plain…

t6

Yet, it’s got nice flared sole….mainly around heel area.

t7

Wears like sneakers….

t8

Felt like something wrong or?

t9

?

Early Summer ’15 Tokyo

I just got back from 2-1/2 wk trip from Tokyo.

Here are what I felt like wearing most this time…

m1

On cooler days, I frequently grabbed this SWEETBEAR in Navy French twill.

I especially liked its poly/cotton lightweight fabric….really ideal for the weather.

And, slight iridescence of Navy color shines nicely against strong sunlight….

m2

This is Engineers’ Jacket in very thin Japanese Indigo fabric…..from ’14S/S I guess…was an ideal choice for warmer days….the fabric is really breathable…yet doesn’t look too thin.

m3

For hotter days…..I chose BDU-R….w/ sleeves rolled-up.

I used to do these roll-ups with vintage Jungle Jackets….but never felt like it’s me.

But in BDU-R, it came naturally…

m4

(Sort of sloppy) collars with no lining nor another ply….it’s easier, and cooler.

m5

Bellows right chest pocket works better with (1) buttoned (bellows side).

m6

Has bellows lower pockets as well….in opposite directions.

m7

These lower pockets work as it should when all (2) buttoned.

m8

Royal Traveler works as a bag when I wear just T-shirt…and I chose Olive Nylon Taffeta one most.

m9

For warmer days/nights, MENPOLINI SHORT in W-dyed Khaki cords (left).

Medium days, I picked this Green Tea-colored Vintage Calico MENPOLINI SHORT.

Then, MENPOLINI SHORT in Stone Supreme Twill for hotter, brighter days.

m10

I reinforced my TENUGUI (traditional Japanese cotton scarves) collection with these 3 from OHNOYA, Ginza.
