Yea, and they may not have enough giveaways if you go late... But I think that's it

Spent the day between Inspiration & 2nd Hand Revival. Had a good visit with Dudewhattheheck & Denimetc. Briefly saw the gang from Standard & Strange as we were leaving & they were coming in. Also had a good chat with Roy, Andrew of High Grade US Standard, & the Indigofera guys. Mostly vintage venders at Inspiration. Not too much reproduction workwear. Ooe Yufketen & Manifold wallets had a nice selection of choice items & I grabbed a couple of things. Other than that not much to tempt me. I did pick up a pair of Roys at 2ndHand Revival. Nice to have a chance to see them in person & try them on. Mrs. CSL bought some vintage pieces. All in all a fun day. Homeward bound now to feed the cats & watch Knightfall...

Oh shit you were there CSL? Didn't see you at all!
The only Denimbro I met was Dudewhattheheck!
Gotta say the Real McCoys booth this year was super lackluster like they didn't give a single fuck and only brought a few jackets in obscure small sizes.

The Jerry, Very sorry to have missed you. We were there on Saturday only. I couldn't even find the Real McCoys booth. Thought they'd be at 2nd Hand Revival too. Didn't see them there...

I spotted Dudewhattheheck, but he was chatting it up at the Himel booth (of course) at Inspiration and I didn't want to interrupt. Didn't see anyone else.

Picked up one of those schnazzy jacquard check shirts from NineLives at Inspiration. As CSL mentioned, most peddlers were vintage dealers. 

Found a sweet vintage racing jacket at 2ndHand along with a test jacket from Runabout... the porsches were sweet, but I wish there were more defenders in attendance.

Aw darn! Feel free to interrupt next time. Himel won't care and if he does, I'll tell him to chill out :D 

I went both days and had a great time. The first day was spent hanging out with only Himel, the Nine Lives crew (K and Ian), and the husband and wife team at Blluemade. Their linen shirts were beautiful, but they unfortunately did not have my size. 

This marks the first year that I managed to not buy anything and I am quite proud of myself for that.

The Ooe offerings were tempting, but the double knee on the pair that I wanted made them a no-go.

I will agree that the McCoy's booth was a joke and they seemed as though they preferred to twiddle their thumbs rather than speak to anyone.

I saw the Jerry, chatted with Sansome a bit, hung out with some friends from instagram, and while I was sad to see that Mr. Randal was not there, did manage to get my fiance to take a picture of me with these two awesome people Big smile

It was great to finally meet you both! 

I agree with Jake, Inspiration was a lots of fun and at the same time lot to take in. I enjoyed also very much the 2nd hand revival. went there on both days and it was very laid back. Met more IG and DB friends there along with Mike Hodis, Indigofera guys, Roy, Stevenson overall and Real Mccoy. Hodis has a awesome workshop/showroom at Eagle Rock!  
Too much Denim - too little time...
