It’s a slow summer on the blog-writing front. 30+ degrees of blazing sun, week after week, means it’s a lot more tempting to go for a refreshing swim in the sea than sit inside researching and writing! Fear not though, once the weather cools down a bit and days get back on schedule I have some great stuff lined up. Waistcoat Wednesday will be back for a fresh run (still need more waistcoats, open to suggestions and submissions!). Trouser Tuesday will also see a fresh run, already have some fine examples lined up. Plus the usual mix of stuff, be it guides, news or just me feeling compelled to speak my mind.
For now though, the past weeks frolicking fun from my Instagram.
Time to give the 19oz @lividjeans their prescribed soak! Have put plenty of days wear into these noe, so a two hour soak in pure glacier water is timely. No voodoo, no virgins or chickens sacrificed. These jeans have shown some indigo bleed, so it will be interesting to see if more bleeds now. Can you contain yourself? #dadstyle #denim #selvedge #lividjeans #trondheim #indigo
Soak update on the 19oz @lividjeans ! Two hour soak tepid glacial water, then initial runoff before laying to dry. Heavy denim holds a LOT of water! Disturbing colour of post-soak water, but fest not, it is only sulfide and/or starch which is used to fix the dye in the fabric. Nice dye transfer to pocket bag shows phone outline. No measureable shrinkage! #dadstyle #denim #lividjeans #soak #selvedge #madeinnorway
