Today's Obsession: Classic Summer

Let’s have a style moment today, and a weekend project too: I need some new jeans for summer like whoa. All I have at the moment is a couple pair of 510’s which are great but getting little threadbare from all the bike time, so I went hunting for a good guide for shrinking my own hard denim 501s. I want something more stovepipey for the next year or so.

Here’s a great guide to shrinking your own to fit that’s actually a lot more reliable than the official Levis instructions. Also, note this followup comment.

Also, classic for summer style: the classic tees at Typography Shop are on sale. This comes from my doppelganger Patrick King in Philly (I know this guy because we’ve been getting each others’ email and web traffic for decades now). He’s also preparing for George Lois’ 80th birthday, coming up soon, with a line of shirts commemorating the creative genius’ ten commandments—and a contest to pick out the next ones at their Facebook page.

People, it is feeling classic in here for summer.
