  1. Updates on the Pbj XX-005, Sam 710BH, Momo er007-2b and SG5109. See respective threads for details. Next update should contain a post 1st wash for some Sda-307 and Pbj 24-010. And I just joined the Flat Head club with a pair of 3002! Cheers
  2. Type: 710-BH Worn for: 3+ years, probably 14-15 months of actual wear Washes: 7-8, screwed up a bit at beginning with 1 soak + 1 wash and dryer which made unwanted creases leading to another wash. This may explain the rather slow fading (compared to what I can read on other models). Finally had to perform a couple croch repairs. I really like how everything stays reliable on these jeans (denim, pockets, threads). Cheers
  3. Type: SG5109 Worn for: Since september 2014, probably 10-11 months of actual wear Washes: 1 initial soak, 1st wash around 5 months, 3 washes Showing more contrast after last wash. I had to perform a knee repair as the threads on the selvedge side broke. Cheers
  4. Type: ER-007-2B Worn for: 4+ years, probably 17-18 months of effective wear Washes: 9-10, first one around 5 months Couple more repairs in the croch area. More indigo threads poping out in the distressed areas. Cheers
  5. Type: XX-005 Worn for: 6+ years, probably 20-21 months of actual wear Washes: 12-13, first one around 6 months More repairs...clearly on the distressed side now. Still love the texture. Cheers,
  6. Noticed you like the sda 107 cut too. The sda 107 and 103 are my favourite cuts in slim and straight jeans. The momo 705 cut is my favourite in between (as a slim/straight). But it's tighter in the crotch area than sda jeans. Tried it already?

  9. Hey, the 24oz denim from PBJ is quite stubborn. And it seems the hardware was not really modified to account for the sturdiness difference. The belt button popped out after a few month. I fixed it with another nail. Then it broke again. So I bought a "regular" button. It last one day. At that moment I thought "screw this". So I did. Using my wife's jewelry equipment: bought some screws and bolts. made a hole in the button. That was the longest part as I had no real piercing tool. polished the button, screw and bolt to get the proper length and make the surface smoother. added some denim to cover the bolt and quickly sew it.. This should finally last! Cheers. PS: Be careful if you plan to size down on these.
  10. Hardware related question. I've got a pair of PBJ 24 z. It seems the hardware is the same as for regular 14 oz jeans. And it looks a bit weak for that denim thickness. The belt button has popped out. I've tried to replace it with a regular button found at a store nearby. It did not last a full day. So I was wondering if there was a (online) store anyone could advise for stronger hardware.
  11. CSM is Clark Street Mercantile in the Mile End. They carry brands like Engineered Garments, RW, PF Flyer and used to have stuff from Rogue Territory. Now they seem to focus on local labels such as Bon Vivant or closer labels from NYC. T&T is such a p*** to go to. It's mostly a showroom as they make more than 90% of their business online.
  12. More than enough for -10°c UES beanie Nudie jkt UES flannel Sam 710 BH RW 877 Cheers
  13. Winter evo update of the following four: XX-005, SG5109, ER007-2B and BH-710. Details in dedicated threads. Edit: Both momos and sammies links are kind of broken it seems...happened after the sufu update. Happy new year btw.
  14. Type: 710-BH Worn for: 3+ years, probably 13-14 months of actual wear Washes: 6-7, screwed up a bit at beginning with 1 soak + 1 wash and dryer which made unwanted creases leading to another wash. This may explain the rather slow fading (compared to what I can read on other models). These are my most resilient jeans. No repairs to perform so far! It may be a mix of the 'loose' cut, the several initial washes that may have got rid of most starch, better construction for BiG? Whatever it is, they're rock solid. Cheers!
  15. Type: ER-007-2B Worn for: Almost 4 years, probably 16-17 months of effective wear Washes: 8-9, first one around 5 months Really like how the black threads appear more and more at friction points. Had to make several repairs in the crotch after hiking though. They're now good to go for the next six months hopefully. Montreal gets your pants quite dirty... Cheers!
