bookmark -repeat to fade

Discovered via ACL's blogroll, Repeat to Fade is a gateway to the world of Japanese (or Americana repro) denim and vintage denim shopping and similar. Fantastic. Old news for the serious collector no doubt but has been a great find for me. Want to know all about wear patterns and wash counts? Check. Looms and dyes? Check. Street shots of denim afficianados? Industry types? Scans of catalogues and lookbooks? Factory visits? Pffft. Grabbed some shots as below, hardly scratches the surface. Serious commitment. Try his denim quiz.... no chance.
