Cloth covered wiring is cool for all sorts of reasons… I use it as often as I can on projects that call for it. There’s been a shortage of the stuff on the market for the past 6 months or so, but suppliers finally have their asses in gear and you can buy it again. I get mine here.
Yeah, I know… They are expensive, but dammit – they are made in the USA and they are Levi’s. A pair was recently gifted to me and I have to say, they are worth every bit of $200. There is something so reminiscent about raw shrink-to-fit denim. Magical.
