The Full Count Conclusion -- Pictures Only Thread
Posted 02 February 2010 - 10:20 PM
Pictures should be as accurate as possible, full front, full back, and any areas you'd like to high light with close ups.
The judging is going to be based on jeans that aren't faded to the SuperFuture board elite standards, just a well worn pair of jeans.
The contest will end March 31st and judging will be handled by Gordon at BiG.
You can put up pictures before your end date, just not after.
If I need to add anything i'll just post it here.

LeicaLad 9Feb09 to 9Feb10: pair #60
Okay, today is my one-year date. Pictures are pre-wash yesterday and post-wash of this morning. Not sure how many washes total. Not often, trying to stay with the spirit of the contest, but I didn’t hesitate when it was really needed. I always love the feel of them post wash. Some of the grunge-look whiskers might disappear, but, frankly, I like clean jeans.
Man, I LOVE Full Count jeans. I’ll sing the praises several times here. But it’s absolutely true. Fantastic, comfortable jeans. What a great contest, and I am damn glad to have participated.
Technically, I am in the salary man category. But I have been dedicated to wearing these babies. These Full Count jeans have been the best jeans I’ve owned in ages. That includes my collection of the usual suspects of Sugar Cane, Samarai, Warehouse, Eternal, Levis, etc. I just really like these jeans. Did I say that already?
And, while I’m expected to dress “professionally” in most of my job endeavors, I have routinely stretched the matter this past year to wear these jeans. In settings where suits were expected, I still wore these along with jacket & tie. Expensive shoes helped counter the shock of seeing denim, it seems. Frankly, I didn’t care. I just didn’t want to wear anything else. I love this cut, I love this denim. I am a serious fan of Full Count. Need a testimonial?
The salary man category means that I have not worn these skateboarding, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, mountain bike cross-X or in any of the shredding sports. Frankly, I'm too far out of shape, and my wife objects. Thus, I cannot even begin to compete with the “kids” in this contest.
I knew that I never had a chance to “win” this contest. But that ain’t why I entered. For me, it was the idea of giving a pair of great denim a solid run for a year and just seeing how they’d turn out.
(Full) Count me as damn pleased!

I canNOT believe I am the first to post.
I have no expectations, but this has been the best denim contest (for me) yet. While I WILL buy another pair of Full Count for my rotation, I am really open to what denim can match or even possibly beat these for the coming year???
Stand and deliver, lads!
Okay: Added shots tossed onto the snow. Hellish bright light. Overwhelmed little P&S POS camera.
Snowmageddon bank shots:
Back side: small spots are water spots from the snow, as front shot was done first. (Should'a waited for the jeans to get colder!)
Last: before snow blindness set it. sorry for washed out look.
P.S. - Gordon wants us to send these directly to him, too!

I can echo most to all of LeicaLads sentiments - these are, by far, the best pair of denim I own - they have aged beautifully and will be with me for years to come. In retrospect I should have gone for the 1108 over the 0105, tho its nice to have a looser fitting pair of jeans too.
These were washed in the shower a lot (10-15 times) and one time with my pound laundry, so I think in a washing machine.
Still have a lot of life in them tho

Worn for approximately a bit less than 11 months in total; didnt do any crazy stuff like tree climbing, skating etc; just walking, sitting,...
They got about 6 warm machine washes
Photos taken outside on a cloudy day with Canon 400D, no alterations afterwards made to the pictures; I hope you enjoy them

Shit! A year went by fast! I almost didn't even get these pics done in time. This set includes some of the first ever photos posted that are taken by me – thanks Mrs. Pwing for a year of pictures.

It should be pretty apparent from the pics that I am on salaryman status. These got wear nightly after work, and all day Friday/Saturday/Sunday (for the most part). I went true to size on these (W35) and I had them hemmed a little long (32.5, I think, I am more like a 31). That being said, the fit of these is darn near perfect. Sometimes I wish the thigh on down was a little slimmer, but the top block is perfect for me. I am debating picking up another pair to put on ice in case these ever give up the ghost (they obviously have a ton of wear left in them).
Pics were taken in my basement under fluorescent lighting, no flash. I wish outside pics would have been in order but the weather hasn't been behaving!
The black arcs are just starting to be visible, at least I was able to get that partially accomplished in the year!
These got an initial hot machine wash (no dry) to get the shrinkage out, and they have had 2 hot water hand washes (with soap) over the last year as they got dirty. They are about ready for another one.
...can't wear skinny jeans cuz my knots don't fit
