  1. You're right, taste is subjective and the judges have made their choice. Excluding your final submission, you posted five updates during two years, only one of which was in the final 12 months of the competition. I think what you're experiencing is guys that prefer my jeans and probably are asking themselves "who the hell is this guy?". Personally, with that low of a level of participation and updates (something that we were told from the get go would be taken into consideration come judging time), I don't know why your jeans were even considered. Is what it is. The opinions i actually care about have been positive here and on instagram, and that's sufficient for me.
  2. It appears photobucket isn't going to let us share pictures anymore without paying. Mega was kind enough to permit me to reupload directly onto Sufu my first two pix from my final post, which were being hosted by photobucket. Hopefully there's no loss of resolution (I think that's why I was using photobucket to post them here). Just about all my two year's worth of updates done in my DWC forum thread were done via photobucket, so I assume none of them are visible now. I don't have the time to attempt to repost all of them.
  3. Those 1001XX look old enough that they're probably made of a denim none of use are familiar with since most of our experience is with stuff made the past ten years. current line up 13.5 oz 1001 banner denim: 900, 1001, DD1001XX, 1001SXX, DD1004, DD1004XX, 1101, 1105 14.5 oz 1000XX denim: 660, 800, 1000, DD1003XX, DD1003SXX
  4. Yeah, I expect them to be closer to the 900 than the 1001, but looks to me like they're not going to be as low rise or narrow in the thigh as the 900.
  5. Haven't seen any measurements slab, I'm guessing it's in between the 1001 and 900 fit wise.
  6. The 1001SXX is the fullest cut standard model and is only available in 13.5 oz banner denim. The 1001 and DD1001XX are two completely different cuts. The 1001 is slimmer in the thigh and more tapered. More of a late 50s/ early 60s vibe. 1001XX is a late 40s cut, bigger than the 1001 everywhere except the waist. Both are made of the 13.5 oz banner denim. you should probably be ok with size 32 800s, as long as your size 34 LVC isn't tight fitting. Then you'd want a 33 or even 34.
  7. I guess no one is too interested in these. A little too much taper for my taste, and too many belt loops.
  8. Hoping Warehouse comes out with something that catches my eye before November. I have an extra pair of LVC '76s I'm currently planning on wearing for the next DWC, and while I really like the model, it's very regular. I don't mean that in any sort of critical sense (the pair I'm currently wearing are the best all around pair of jeans I have), but if I'm going to wear something heavily for two years I'd like them to be something exceptional. Day dreaming about what I'd like to see..... a new 1002, made of the LHT 1001 denim WH used for the Montgomery Ward jeans a couple years ago, with late 40s 101Z (or 101B) details, and a fit similar to the 800 (not too wide, not too narrow). Anyone from WH out there listening?
  9. The blend will be less scratchy. Can't comment on any of the other attributes. My advice with a pea coat or mackinaw would be to focus first on fit. IMO, they're not super warm jackets to begin with, and if they're lose fitting or drafty in an area, that just makes them less warm. Inherited my girlfriends father's old Woolrich mackinaw from the late 50s. It's full through the waist and lets in enough air that I wouldn't think of wearing in temps below 45 degrees.
  10. Probably. But then if that's the case their sage advice isn't very specific. "Two years" could be anywhere from 100 to 730 days. I always roll my eyes when I hear advice to wear X number of days, months, or years before washing, like there's some magical number you have to hit or your selvedge jeans will turned into a pair of 80s stone washed when they hit soap and water.
  11. I like the denim. Compared to what we normally see from LVC it feels heavier, is a more dense and tighter weave, and is hairy post wash. It's a lighter shade of blue, which is fine and correct. But, I'd like to see that denim dyed with 100% indigo. Not sure if that would be the correct denim/dye for a '70 to '72 501, but it would make for a great pair of jeans. If you can grab a pair of 76s for around $200 (see cultizm if you live in the US), but they're not IMO worth $285.
  12. Yeah, I had to scroll back up to see the date after reading the article. i wonder, have the people who are still giving advice like this ever worn in a pair of jeans? Or are they just repeating what they've heard or read? Two years before washing? If you've got 730 days of wear into a pair of jeans, odds are they're already destroyed. And dry cleaning?! How's that better or safer than soap and water?! anytime I see or read about someone giving advice like this I think "amateur hour".
  13. You don't need to wear them every day to be competitive. You've got two years, wear them four days a week you've got 416 days of wear.
  14. Unless something comes along before November that catches my eye, planning on going with these. Grabbed a second pair of '76s after getting 30% off and selling off three old pairs of jeans.
  15. I think he's just throwing that in as an example of trying to randomly cram every possible feature into a pair of jeans, hoping one or more of them will be enough to get someone to buy them.
