what denim are the LEROY STRAUSS?


White Oak put some wonky uneven yarn at the end of a run- then matched the weave pattern of some 1890 Levi #2’s

I missed last two weeks of Leroys: first I had an influenza (type A apparently) and then I was in a conference in Sofia, Bulgaria wearing boring-adult-clothes. Now reunited with Leroys and will try to make most of my last week. 

  
It has become reasonably spring-like so I thought it's time to get the bikes out of the hibernation. There's four bikes in the family and they all have a little different air valves so three pumps are needed. 

 
Mine is this 70's French Motobecane road bike. Motobecane was never a very fancy brand but this one is quite alright. I found a NOS leather saddle by Ideale-brand that went out of business sometime in the 80's. It has recently been revived.

My Leg is sadly coming to close. I will wash the Leroys and ship them to Foxy.

There has been very few pairs of jeans that I have enjoyed wearing as much as these. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity.



 








...and yes, the coin is OK!

Jeans are on their way to Foxy. 

Here's an rare meeting of DB 2012/13 Tour Shirt (LVC Sunset Chambray) and Leroys



I gave them a quick wash and hang dry. They started as 42 cm waist and ended up being 39 cm (so they're about a 31 inch waist now - probably will stretch soon back to 32). Lost one cm from inseam.
