    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Super adorable! My cat is too fat to use the leg as a tunnel, I'm afraid.

    Yes, and not even from my own dog!

    Very well, thanks! I'm so happy that he's a youth now, we're having lots of fun and I get to do other things as well, not just take him out to pee every hour. Speaking of, we (Thiago and I) went to a friend's farm/stables this weekend. I was going to pose on a tractor (and maybe even on a horse!) for you all, but alas, on Saturday we forgot and the next day it was raining too much. These are more or less all I have: I delayed the wash I was contemplating late last week because of this trip, no use washing only to smell like a horse a couple of days later, but in 55 minutes the jeans are going in the washer! Will return with more pics after.

    I went to a muddy dog park today, this might call for a first post-wear wash. Wear documented late last week:

    Best quilt ever, @chicote! Great fits and progress, everyone. I've worn the jeans every day except for last Sunday, when I never managed to get out of my sweatpants. I see some more fadez come in now, which is nice. I rarely carry anything in the pockets for long, but I can just about make out the contours of the dog clicker (!) in the coin pocket. The story of this summer/autumn, I guess. Previously promised photos still to come, hopefully this weekend.

    Day 10, off to work with lil' doggo. I've actually worn the jeans every day since the start of the contest and I can already see some nice creases and fades coming in. It's been a while since my last new pair, but these seem like pretty fast faders. And I've either lost a substantial amount of weight since September 1st, or these have stretched a few inches the past week and a half. I bet on the latter. Autumn is definitely in the air in Norway these days, mornings are cold and bright and I've started layering. Tucked shirt ftw btw! I'll break out the real camera this weekend and try to get some better shots.

    Thiago! He's a Brazilian terrier, so it made sense to give him a Brazilian name. I don't care about football (soccer) but men always ask me if he's named after some famous player. Truth is I named him after the cute exchange student in my class in high school.

    I forgot about the newspaper on my way home from work, but anyway. Impromptu photo sesh because the cat was sitting right there, puppy coming up later! Sorry about cutting off the cuffs but you all know what they look like...

    (In case you registered it before I corrected the mistake, @Duke Mantee: Sorry about the neg rep, and lykke til!)

    Yes, truth be told - and this is not to minimize other people's sizing issues - these jeans feel more or less exactly like my other size 30 jeans. The waist is indeed a bit smaller but it also sits higher up where I measure less. Could've managed a 29, but I'm very happy with the way things are! Anyway, it's on! Busy morning, but I'll get back with my official kick-off picture later. I'll admit that I wore the jeans taking my puppy for a walk around the block late last night. I just couldn't wait...

    @olmecasteve, what did your sister use to make the arcs? Looks great!

    I did a full 40 degree wash + 45 minutes in the dryer the other day and didn't get that much shrinkage really. Waist (across): 14.5" -> 14" Rise: 12.75" -> 12.5" Thigh: a hair over 11.5" -> a hair under 11.5" Inseam: 30" -> 29.5" (Funny thing, even though I use the metric system, I only measure jeans in inches, it's usually easier for comparison.)
