  1. I'm pretty sure that they don't. However the SDA LHT denim is similar in its fading properties to eternal denim. Depends whether you can put up with the arcuates though!


  2. I would say it depends whether you are a small or big 32. If you are the small variety I would go for the 32 as 811's do stretch out quite a bit. Also worth taking into consideration is the size of your thighs - if they are quite large I would suggest going for the 33's. Hope that helps...


  3. I would say get the next size down. These look quite loose on you and if they are one-wash they wont shrink down. If anything they wil stretch making them even looser - depends how often you plan on washing them though. Don't worry about them being tight at the start - they will loosen out.


  4. would you say BiG's measurements for the 811s are pretty accurate?

    the size chart i got from zipangutreasures has the waist measurements off by an inch or so

    Yeah I went with the BiG size chart and it seemed to be pretty much on the money.


  5. Did a few pics of the eternals this afternoon - now just over 9 months old. I've been putting in some pretty good wear recently and they're finaly starting to fade a quicker!

    N.B. - yes they are photo-shopped but the contrast is true


  6. Wow. Some great eternals are starting to take shape!

    chrisj - I agree with the point about holding off untilt the next wash. It'll crisp up the fades and stop you loosing so much indigo.

    headtowall - Any chance of a natural light photo? It might just be the backdrop but your denim looks very blue...

    dstrkt - nice combs man. Those will look great in a few months time

    watchman - WOW...! The denim looks amazing there. Any chance of some full photos and wash info?


  7. Cross-post from the eternal thread:

    It was really sunny this morning so I thought I would get a few shots of my eternals in the sun - its been a while! Nearly 9 months now and 2 washes.

    These have really started to fade in the last few months. They still smell pretty fresh after a cold winter so I plan on holding out another month or so before I give them their next wash - try and get the fades even more defined. :)


  8. i dont feel like searchin this thread, but do you have fit pics?

    Here's the only one I have on my computer. There are another couple further back in the thread as well - just have a look through my post history and you'll find them.

  10. Middleeastbeast - they look very nice now! Have they shrunk at all in the wash? They just look like a totaly different pair of jeans. I'd love to see a few more fit pics if possible


  11. Thanks guys, great advice. Another reason I'm asking is because they were getting kinda itchy and annoying so I wanted to do a cold soak.

    If they're that bad then yeah give them a wash. Don't expose yourself to rare jungle skin diseases for the sake of fades lol! A warm soak will probably do the trick - you can get away with 2-3 soaks before the colour fade becomes noticable. Also if you don't move them around too much most of the creases should stay in the jeans


  12. It's a bit of a tricky one really - personaly if there was very litlle fading and they didn't smell too bad I wouldn't bother with washing them. Don't worry about the lack of fading - they take ages! A pair of eternals is for life... Mine are at nearly 9 months and the fades are suddenly starting to get well pronounced with 2 machine washes and I plan on wearing these for a long time to get some really well defined fades

    At the end of the day it really depends on how long you want to wear them for - if you really want to get some colour out then yeah give them a wash. Personaly I think eternal denim deserves a bit more than that so if it was me I wouldn't worry about the lack of fades too much and keep on walking.

    I hope that helps somewhat - here endeth todays lecture!


  13. Thanks everyone for the rep + feedback for my eternals.

    Watchman - welcome back - your eternals are looking amazing. They're turning into a real vintage pair of jeans. How many washes have they been through?

    Vanquish Gold - yeah they are legit... and awsome! Kinda like PRPS but using better denim and at the price they should be. If you can find a pair in your size then I would go for them. Alternatively eternal do a nice distressed black jean which whilst not having all the hard distressing still look great.

  14. What kinda jeans are these in the logo:

    and how did they get those mad magic crystal fadings?

    Are they treated by hand with some kinda tool to look like that?

    Waddaya think?

    Yeah I would imagine that much of the detailing is done by hand - not really my thing though. I aways find that processed jeans like that often look pretty cheap when worn. They are by eternal if you are interested:

    personaly I think these are a better buy though...

    kinda like a good prps wash but at the price they should be...
