These posts are pieces of my life.  I try to be a doer.  These are some of the things I do and some of the things I like.

I also make things like music and leather goods.

  3. I love your remarks on the subject of seeming “materialistic”. I find I also have trouble explaining my admiration for “things” to people who confuse this sort of appreciation with compulsive consumerism. Great looking blog!

  20. Hey bro,

    I had been following this blog for several months without knowing it was, in fact, you who ran it. Then the tumblr was linked to on t.net, and I was like “WHAT? IT’S TEPPEI?” I had no idea. You have great taste!

    Keep on being inspired and inspiring others.

  21. I felt like i was reading about myself!
    The more i check and search you tumblr and this site.. the more you inspire me. ThanQ so much!
    God Bless!

  22. I have no idea if you’ll see this question, but I am about to buy some new jeans, and I love all that you post about your jeans…
    Anyway, I was thinking about APC’s. What has your experience been? or do you have any other suggestions. I want a good raw denim, but that doesn’t get too dumpy everywhere. Make sense? looking forward to your thoughts.

    • “Dumpy” really depends on your body and cut of the jean. APC’s New Standards are a good in between cut that’s a straight but not too slim and not too boxy and you can size according to how you want them to fit. I sized down 3 as I wanted a slimmer fit and it was brutal at first but they fit perfect now. Where do you live? The best bet is to find a store near you that carries good denim and try them on. Keep in mind that raw denim will stretch to your body (within reason). Hope this helps.

      • thanks for the help. I ended up buying the New Cure… I had to size down quite a bit, I think it was 3 sizes as well. The only thing I was not pumped on was the fact that it didn’t have the selvedge strip… I know thats lame but I like that stripe. Have you heard of Left Field denim? I almost bought those, but apparently they are really new and the guy selling them didn’t know howd they last.

  23. great blog with lots of inspiration, to quick i was trough, please keep on blogging!
    bye, alex

  24. Alright, I found your blog looking for NS washing tips, as a dad of 2 little girls I’ve also found having kids is the best device for cultivating good denim fades. Anyway great blog, I’ll keep visiting.
