  1. So... what in the hell happened here??
  2. this is less a contest and more of a joke. updates.
  3. Not sure-- haven't been counting tbh. I would say at least 10 times through the washer and dryer, with increased frequency as the weather has gotten hotter. I don't give my jeans much thought re: laundry anymore except I keep lighter clothes out of the mix and unless they're teetering on shrinking beyond the scope of my fat ass.
  4. i guess everyone lamed out. updates: edit: better daylight photos

    breaking in some DW 332s. they are reminiscent of the 660s. i think these are my favorite fitting jeans so far. you can't beat the price right now, either. sorry for the shitty phone pics. someday-- when i have nothing better to do than post pics on a forum dedicated to jeans-- I'll try to fish out my 1100 and 660 to compare the denim.

    Tender Co. Denim

    taking a break from the SG contest to wear my woad-dyed 132s.
  7. ^not gonna lie-- kinda got excited for a minute there.
  8. it's beatle's call, but fwiw i don't mind, as long as people "post" their commitment. def send a private message, though. a crude representation, but you get the idea. when you can't get out of either end of the aisle, you gotta stretch! the indigo sheds constantly on these-- i've been wearing 'em 3-4 times a week, a few hours at a time. i think things should start to get interesting quite soon, however. they'll be hitting the wash soon. shout out to william aka rodeo bill and tender. about to grease up this patch with some tallow.
  9. nothing really new to report here, but hopefully a bump will inspire those lurking in the shadows to post. went to see my blazers play the pistons (and lose) in the process of stepping and stretching up an aisle after we got busted for "upgrading" our seats, i immediately heard some threads start to blow. oops. not too bad, thankfully. i've been using this wallet for ages now, but it used to be a natural waxed canvas, now indigo from being the goto wallet for breaking in jeans. the jeans are still bleeding quite a bit, and some fading is starting to happen. not sure what to expect here, but i'm stoked to see what transpires. i'll post some detailed pics in a week or two.
  10. Edit: thanks for rotating the pics. The angle makes it hard to tell how well they fit. Did you take measurements pre/post soak by chance?
  11. post-hot-soak measurements: waist: 18.5 thigh: 12.7 rise: 10.5 inseam: 30 leg opening: 7.6 Went out drinkin' last night. The denim is dark: Bonus:
  12. Indeed, Max. Jeans are still wet, but the waist has shrunk 1 full inch so far. The concern when initially wearing the tagged 36s was the slight room I had in the thighs. As BF mentioned, the thighs are the trickiest part of this cut, but I wouldn't have purchased them if I hadn't tried them on, that's for damn sure.
  13. Since there's not "Fat as Fuck World Tour" going on, I figured I'd jump on this train; it's an honor to share contest space with the incomparable Beatle, to whom we will all eventually lose. First pair of SGs (I'm in it for the free bag). Went to SE PDX to see my buds TMadd and Jonathan. They concluded that while the 36s fit fine, there was not enough thigh room to work with once they hit water. So, in an embarrassing turn of events, I've sized up to a size 38. What. The. Hell. You can't see it in the pics (my bad), but the waist is super wide. Currently hot soaking the shit out of them. pre-soak: waist: 19.5 thigh: 13.25 rise: 11 inseam: 32 leg opening: 8
  14. All pieces are either new w/ or w/out tags with the exception of the Kapital jacket. Feel free to PM me w/ reasonable offers or questions. As a caveat, lowball offers will be ignored. Shipping: FREE. I ship via USPS Priority Mail (in the continental US) to ensure peace of mind. Insurance can be added, but at cost to buyer. Here's the quick list of items I have for sale-- scroll for measurements and details. 1) Engineered Garments Wool Camo Bedford Jacket, Navy, size M. $325 (Retail: $500+) 2) Kapital Indigo Egyptian Twill M-65 Jacket, size 4 (M/L). $350 (Retail: $861) SOLD 3) Heller's Cafe by Warehouse x J.Crew Lion Pant Mastered, size 32 (fits 33/34). $200 (Retail: $545) 4) Levi's Vintage Clothing 1915's Sunset Shirt, size L. $86 (Retail: $150+) 5) Levi's Vintage Clothing 1920's Two-Pocket Sunset Shirt, size M. $57 (Retail: $220) 6) Mister Freedom Sweat Shorts, Grey and Red. $57 (Retail: $149.95) 7) Warehouse Peanuts/Snoopy T-Shirt, Navy, size M (fits S). $36 (Retail: $60) 8) Dana Lee Pocket Tee, Yellow, size S. $36 (Retail: $55) 1) Bedford jacket in a tonal navy and grey patterned camouflage, made w/ 94% custom Woolrich wool and 6% nylon. P2P: 21 Shoulder: 18.5 Length: 27.5 P2Cuff: 18.75 2) Kapital Indigo Egyptian Twill M-65 Jacket. Worn sparingly and is in excellent condition. I love this jacket, but I've not had many occasions to wear it b/c I have too many jackets in the rotation. Google this jacket for more info and pics. It's a work of art. SOLD P2P: 21.5 Shoulder: 19.5 Length: 30.5 P2Cuff: 19.75 3) Heller's Cafe by Warehouse x J.Crew Lion Pant Mastered. Memphis cotton. From Larry McKaughan's personal archive and designed by Warehouse, these are based on a pair of 1920s blues from the now-defunct workwear label Lion brand. Finished with details typical of WWI-era U.S. Army pants, these sport single-needle stitching, two back pockets and a hand-finished master wash. Waist: 16.5 Inseam: 32.25 Leg Opening: 8.5
  15. 4) Levi's Vintage Clothing 1915's Sunset Shirt. Made in Italy. P2P: 24 Shoulder: 21.5 Length: 34 P2Cuff: 22.5 5) Levi's Vintage Clothing 1920's Two-Pocket Sunset Shirt. New, but needs some sewing to repair (see photo), hence the deep discount. If you don't want to pay your local tailor to do it, I will, although I'd rather not (If you can't tell already, I have too many clothes). P2P: 22 Shoulder: 18 Length: 30 P2Cuff: 19 6) Mister Freedom Sweat Shorts. Purchased at a sample sale awhile ago, these sweats are made from vintage 50s and 60s cotton sweatpants, both pieces are definitely rare and one-of-a-kind. I confirmed that these were the real deal (PM me for details, no pimping out names here). They have no pockets, so really they're laid back and perfect for lounging around, kickin' it, or working out. Tried my best to measure these, but they're sweatpants-- they have elastic waistbands with drawstrings, so you can let ‘em loose or tie 'em up. Grey: Waist: 18 Inseam: 16.5 Leg Opening: 10 Red: SOLD Waist: 18 Inseam: 16 Leg Opening: 8 7) Warehouse Peanuts Tee. Great tee, but I sized incorrectly, since it fits small. P2P: 19.25 Shoulder: 17.5 Length: 23.5 8) Dana Lee Yellow Pocket Tee. P2P: 20.5 Shoulder: 17 Length: 25.75

    Kicking Mule Workshop

    It's official. R.I.P. Context has a bit of their stock marked down. I copped the sweatshirt.

    Tender Co. Denim

    I'm not familiar with dyeing, but what would have happened if you had kept the diluted mixture and dipped it multiple times?

    Left Field Jeans

    Sweet pickup, H. Looks a tad big though imo. And what's going on with your cuff in the bottom left of the photo??

    Ande Whall Denim

    I love the Caribou, Ande. I always do an initial soak and hold out as long as possible until they stink.
  20. grooveholmes


    Agreed. The pictures look good to me, and you have some nice progress. Thanks for sharing, hog.

    Would love to see more folks on this train. Like aho, I don't know how long I can wear these once other commitments (Devis contest) begin. I'm trying to give them a good run, though. With one soak, I have noticed similar marbling of color, but not to the degree of "crinkliness". Keep in mind it's quite hairy, like a 60s model (pun intended). WH Sunday. WH tee Heller's x WH WH 1100

    Yes, they are willing to ship overseas-- you have to fill out a form and then they'll contact you. I tried to locate a sweatshirt I wanted in my size and they emailed me a few days later with the bad news. (However, it showed up on the Hickorees website a few days later so it all worked out.) Aho, amazing compare pics. Your collection is bangin'.
