June down South

“Of course life frightens me sometimes. I don’t happen to take that as the premise for everything else though. I’m going to give it hundred percent and go as far as I can. I’ll take what I want and leave what I don’t want. That’s how I intend to live my life, and if things go bad, I’ll stop and reconsider at that point. If you think about it, an unfair society is a society that makes it possible for you to exploit your abilities to the limit.”

We just can’t seem to shake this rain down here. A week straight of thunderstorms can dampen even the most cheerful soul. Anyways, here’s some shots from this week.

Thursdays

Not much to say. I finally was able to take a day off during the week and it felt good. Long car rides and some rad photos. This Ricoh GR has been in my hand everyday, and I’m super happy with the photos I’m getting from it. My friends and I have been training for our Summer Solstice ride in June, which is a 50 mile adventure bike ride up to a small piece of property on the river. We’ve been cleaning the property of some serious Florida overgrowth (hence the gnarly poison ivy photo) and everyone is really excited to get away. I’ll be shooting the ride, the camp out, and then the ride home. It’s going to be a blast, and if you’re in the Tampa area and want to ride with us – let me know.

Feel No Ways

A lot can change in a year. My daughter just turned two, and I’m rebuilding myself from the ground up. I feel like I keep coming back to this and then falling off again, and I think it’s because I need to make it about whats relevant in my life. I still love Engineered Garments and everything from Japan, but I’ve realized I want people to know more about me than just material things. I think this can still serve that same purpose, the name may not fit as well but I’m far too stretched on time to start something new. Simple Threads is going to be made up of the thousands of threads that hold my life together and ground me. My daughter, my friends, and all of the other things that make me happy (Engineered Garments included).

Yea, sorry about that. Not a good look to have my page say its expired or been suspended. In a weird way, it made me irritated enough to want to start blogging again. Not much has changed, actually, everything has changed. My daughter is 16 months old now, and wow does she keep us busy. That, with full time school and a full time job – pretty much leaves me with enough time to eat and sleep. The American dream right? But, I’m back on this. So many kind words and so many people asking me to do it again – so I’m committed.

I’m still into workwear (big surprise) but I’ve broadened my tastes a little bit. I have a few crazy pieces in my closet now, long shirts, overalls, and more variations of the EG work shirt! Oh, and I upgraded my camera!

I feel like this blog has taught me a lot, from where I started at fashion wise. It has helped me sort of figure out how I wanted to dress. I read a quote from some guy on StyleForum, and it really summed it up for.

“I dunno, man. What are your favorite books? Movies? Biggest dreams? What would you wear if you could wear whatever the fuck you wanted? Because chances are, you can, and you should just do that” -Synthese, Style Forum

So, its taken me five years to do just that. Thanks again, for all of the kind words – and for continuing to read.

Life happens, sorry about that. I’ve been taking some time off of my second job (this) to spend time learning how to be a father. The Engineered Garments FW14 collection was by far my favorite, and the Field Parka (olive cotton) with the Bush shirt (indigo denim)were some stand out pieces for me. I think they work well together, and although the look isn’t for everybody – I really like it. I’m also wearing 4 year old Workaday Reverse Sateen fatigues, and McKinlays for Nepenthes Sherwood boots.

Photo credit for the pictures of me goes to my friend Dylan. My 5D died right at the beginning of the shoot, so these were all taken using a Fuji X100.
