    Hey guys, hello from Ukraine. If you ever consider is 3A-6TS got enough place for most necessary stuff in case of war in your country - yes, it’s got enough place. Medkit, some closes, compact food, docs and MacBook Pro. For now can rate it 10 anxiety of 10.

    Denim updates, both fit and fabric. TCB has these spurts to its fabric aging. Six month and one year tend to mark a rapid progression in tonal shift and wear for me, both in the '50s and these S40s. Lovely jeans all around.

    Hi everyone! # 33 Uncle Karl Last updated. A very wonderful year and a half, which seems short but long, is finally over today. It is a denim with various thoughts, such as happy days and sad days. Thank you for showing us all your wonderful love. The journey of the contest is over, but the long and long journey of life is still going on. It was really nice to meet you in an instant, a year and a half of that long journey. See you again someday!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think this is the final update for the contest. So let me tell you a little about jeans and my daily wear. I use it to work in construction, have used it for more than 1 year, wear it regularly, and then wash it regularly. Dirt kills lint, wash jeans weekly (more so in summer when my hands and jeans get dirty). Denim shrivels up, and comes off; when that happens, the outer layer slowly peels off the indigo dye which, in time, causes the weft to look and then results in a fade. hope to see the fading show up in the next few weeks. If the lifestyle was more relaxed, we would have to wait longer than this. It's all the same, the sooner we live, the faster we fade away. Here are some photos I took after the last wash. Cheers to the other contestants. I'm also happy to be able to take part in this contest, especially with those of you who are in various corners of the world:)

    J99 came in. The wide fit is a welcome change from the other slimmer insulators - pretty sure I could fit two of me in here. Incredibly versatile too. It can take on several silhouettes depending on how you close it, and it looks good over everything from a tee and cargos to suiting. Definitely the choice for static warmth in the cold. And the welt pockets are cavernous - no issues fitting a 1L nalgene.

    Ok in that case, here’s mine #45 worn hard for the first 6 months then more casually. These were bought raw, and after 6 months I washed and dried them countless times. This was a great contest at a great time!!!! Thank you @volvo240thebest and TCB for putting on another great one!

    Wore my 40s on a trip out to LA last week to pick up a new motorcycle n ride it back to Albuquerque, loosely documented on Polaroid film using this lil mamiya rb67. Unfortunately the aperture slider seemed to have jammed somewhere along the way out and so most of these photos had way too much light for the camera to handle. Here are a handful that turned out okay: In Brawley, California, somewhere I’ve always wanted to go (imperial county generally). About ten years ago I read the book Imperial by William T Vollman and it’s made a lasting impression on me, such a strange and magical and desperate part of the world. I only got to spend a couple of hours there as I was trying to get to tucson that afternoon, the below photos are from a quick cruise through salton city. And a couple from penny’s diner in Yuma Arizona: The rest of the trip after this point I was white-knuckling on the highway trying to stay upright as a massive snowstorm came in from western New Mexico and froze me solid and blew me back and forth all over the road for the last 200 miles home. got some minor frostbite on my fingers and knees but made it back in one piece lol. and the jeans have another story to tell! I’ll update w some pics of them soon. for now here’s a pic of the bike, 2000 kawasaki w650 :p

    I picked up the samurai 15oz satin back baker pants. The fabric feels fairly dense. I’m looking forward to see how it ages with wear and regular washing. I washed this chore coat again and it’s aging more rapidly with each wash now. buzz rickson beanie stevenson chore coat iron heart hoodie samurai baker pants rick Owens ramones

    I'm going to get some fit pics to update for a final sign off as well, but here are the jeans. Such a great contest with so many people crossing the finish line with beautifully worn jeans in various states of decay. I love it all. Keep 'em coming!

    Here’s my final submission - I was contestant #110. I’m really grateful for this contest as it was what reminded me what I love about this denim world and this community - I got into it really last minute, mostly out of a need for a new pair of jeans as my last pair were running to rags, but also because I’d missed out on the last two tcb contests and loved how intimate and mutually supportive those contests had been, full of personal updates and such unique results from each of the contestants. Though this contest was a little more sparse as far as personal updates went, I’m really happy to see how many of us gave their pairs consistent wear. I sort of abandoned mine for a good part of the contest, though they had their fair share of fun experiences: moving to New Mexico, renovating a house, rebuilding two trucks, doing a lot of tattooing and painting (somehow only getting a couple of paint splatters and almost no ink on them … cause I learned how to tune my machines properly lol), a good deal of gardening, and a lot of cooking… and they stayed mostly together through all of it! Unfortunately they were down for about 5 months of the contest because I kept putting off repairs, first on the knees, then the seat, then the hems, and now after patching the right rear pocket the left is starting to go also… but i have no plans to let em go yet, they’re probably my favourite jeans I’ve ever had. I’ll stop reminiscing and put up some pictures now. Sort of by accident, one of the knees was patched by hand at first, the other was darned on my sewing machine. I used unwashed scraps from the hems for all of the patches and really like how the fabric puckered a bit as it shrunk against the underlying worn denim. Compared to the left side, which has never given me any problems, I’ve had to make four separate repairs on the hand stitched knee. Pretty clear difference in strength, lol. The hems are getting kinda shredded - not visible in this pic but the creases where they’ve been folded are full of little holes along the back side. The back is where they’ve needed the most attention and what made me set them aside for almost a third of the contest. I darned both sides of the seat and later stitched a patch for the right rear pocket - a bit of the patch fabric can be seen fraying out from the bottom corner where I re stitched the pocket to the leg. Probably gonna have to do the same on the left soon, that hole appeared out of nowhere after their last wash. Here’s the inside - I was lucky to get two indigo dyed pocket bags! They haven’t faded the most dramatically but they’ve held up really well - the wabash is just starting to tear around the pocket opening but otherwise haven’t had any problems. And finally, a couple fit pics: Thanks for looking and sharing everyone, I love seeing everyone’s submissions!

    SC x Junky 46's Last washed in May, i haven't worn them regularly since, the knee has gone through and they're getting a bit frail (i only ever get 2-3yrs wear out of a pair of jeans so these have done pretty damn well) it's been 8 months since the last wash so they were in dire need. All photos taken in the rain Grimey pre-wash.. Post-wash Pre Post
