Random images from the last couple of months.
MFSC 7161MD's post wash at approx. a year of wear.
Antwerp Central Station, might as well be a spaceship docking bay.
Herman Miller Eames LCM, scratched up by years and years of use, it's wear sped up by exposed back pocket rivets and cinch buckles.
MFSC 7163's post wash, also at approx. a year of wear.
Encountered this perfectly ratty looking WWII Jeep on my way to the office one day, next day it was gone.
Anonymous stool in the lovely country house on Mallorca where Miss Duck and I spent New Years.
Cloth patch on my Rigid LVC 333's.
(Note that as these are a sample, the stamped size is incorrect.)
And I ended up with this nice bloody gash in my knee, and also my jeans...
Funny thing is that when I just got my first 7161's I also fell with my bike and as such have a lighter spot on exactly the same spot on my knee.
Repaired it already but figured I could take some pics while I was at it:
Not much to see in terms of fading, but it does show my whole "set-up"...
Did a traditional hand repair, stitched a piece of the beautiful Cone "tweed" denim under it and then folded in the edges and stitched over those
As good as new!
These are a 32, my first 7161's were a 34, and my 7163's a 33. (I generally take 32 in jeans)
I opted for a 32 in these as I figured if I was going to wear the same cut as I've already been wearing for a year, I might as well switch the size up.
It shows that these don't have to be worn loose for a "workwear" fit but also look good slim, note that the way these are cut makes for a very fitted top block, no hipflare whatsoever.
Soaked for about an hour in the hottest water from the tap, and hung dry overnight.
I had to take out the top stitched cuff as I needed the length.
Some raw pics:
Horse hide A-2 type side pocket, most useful thing ever
Custom waistband markings
Modified label sewn over regular label, hand dated
inside size tag
black buttons and custom inner anchor stencil
lower left leg inside name patch, hand stenciled and marked for me
And a fit pic:
7161md's size 32 (my jeans size 32)
The 7161 "Type 2" are a pair of Christophe's personal jeans and functioned as a detail prototype for what was later to become the 7161md (modified).
