  1. Time to officially kick off the contest now that the jeans have reached at least some of you! Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy. Should get some nice vertical falling. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project. If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 You can read more about the jeans on my blog indigoveins.com and also a piece on the guys behind the jeans. The contest length: The contest will run until January 31th. After that you will all have until February 28th to post the final pics. The prizes: The winner will win a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and the runner-up gets a €200 voucher from Göteborg Manufaktur. The jury: A jury of 5 will judge the contest winner: Shingo-san, Kuniyoshi-san, Jonas and Olof that runs Gbg Mfg and myself.

    Funny story: When I visited TCB in 2017 Hajime had already received the original pair from Douglas and Kerstin to start the collab project. So sometimes it takes a while to sort it out as well.
  3. Haven't been in here for a while, nice to drop in and see those lovely fades b_F. 6 months to go now gents. Keep up the good work!

    ^ Ryo & Hiro wouldn't go into detail about how the time machine wash is done when I met them, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's similar to the oxidized denim.

    Was that the jacket you had on when I met you last summer @MJF9? If so, bloody good job beating it up, looks very nice.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Yeah, I'd do a longer second soak if I were you. At least an hour with detergent.
  13. Aye, that marbling is exactly what we were looking for. Very happy with how it is turning out now that there're more properly faded pairs.

    Happy to hear he finally managed to get his hands on a pair! Not sure I'll join in, but stoked to follow it non the less!

    Aha OK! So far they are holding up well but I've only worn them about 6 months or so, so it's still hard to tell. Will keep you posted.
