    I haven't even tried yet because I am still confused on what the voting system even is.

    DWC2 - Final Submissions Thread

    Yeah I'm also curious as to what the voting system is. This is why I haven't submitted mine yet.

    Im glad I posted my fade shots before Soul did I would hate to follow this up. absolutely amazing fades. Better than the jeans that stores hang on walls.

    WAYWT 2019 (denim edition)

    Thanks! At first, I was hesitant to buy two of the same jacket in different colors, but the black Mulholland fit me so well I just really wanted to get the brown one and I am quite glad I did. It's not just the basic measurements, but the way the jacket is cut overall that I think makes it work for me.

    This is a bit of a cross post from the contest submission thread, but I'll post more shots here. I've worn these CSF 1937's for two years straight, which I think is the longest I have ever consistently worn one pair of jeans. They still haven't been worn all that much because I wear other trousers and chinos a lot and I can't wear them at work. They need repairs right now and there are a fair amount of broken threads, but I feel that they have held up fairly well. If I had washed them more and if I wasn't so overweight while wearing them, the crotch would likely have held up much better. At my current weight/where my weight is heading, this should be less of an issue in the future. They've been washed 4 or 5 times now, but obviously I should have washed them a lot more than that by now, even with my inconsistent wear. I'm not one of those people who thinks you should never wash your jeans, I just get lazy about it. The 11oz (pre-soak) fabric is great for Cali weather and wearing a normal weight fabric almost feels a little strange now. The cut and the light fabric means the combs are weak, but my extra weight during most of my time wearing these resulted in some pretty good whiskers IMO. These obviously are not as beautifully fades as many other examples, but I'm pretty happy with them so far. I'm not sure if I'm going to wear them consistently after the repairs are done or if I make them a summer pair, but either way, they will still be worn.

    DWC2 - Final Submissions Thread

    dudewuttheheck, USA, Conners Sewing Factory/One Piece of Rock 1937 model size 36 I have absolutely no shot of winning. These were pretty much the only blue jeans that I have worn over these past two years, but I wear a lot of trousers, chinos, non-indigo jeans, etc. All the entries I've seen so far deserve the title more than me, but I am still really glad to have participated in this. The jeans need some repairs now, but I will continue wearing them for at least another year or two, maybe more. This is the lightest denim fabric I've worn at 11oz pre-soak and this was great for socal summers. I love these jeans. Initial shots: Wearing these jeans for two years straight means that I got to create a lot of memories in them, but the standout was wearing them in Japan. These were the jeans I wore when going back to see Konaka-San from CSF again. Wearing these in the workshop they were made in with the man who made them was pretty special. Progress Shots: Most recent outfit shots with these jeans, before their final wash: Final pics after the final wash:

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    Yeah all my tea core jackets have been like your Iron Heart jacket. They all chip away to a light color underneath. I think I have seen some leathers similar to the FCL jacket, including shinki. This Shinki jacket, for example, appears to have aged similarly to how yours is aging.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    Yeah, the Flat Head jackets with tea core don't seem to age too quickly. There are other Shinki hides that get into the tea core very quickly, but not all. The Fine Creek jackets do seem to start fading to brown almost immediately. What I like about it is that it's not chipping off like some tea core finishes, but instead is more smoothly and naturally fading to brown.

    Looks great @Max Power! Can't wait to see it in two years. It's going to be incredible.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I have quite short legs and certainly had a muffin top for several years and I actually found higher rise jeans to be much more comfortable than low rise jeans and I also think they look much better on me. Even now while losing weight, I still find higher rise more comfortable. Obviously, YMMV.

    That was an awesome interview. Super informative. Thanks for sharing.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    The question is also how well these stores are doing, how much of their business is online, and if the owners made or are making income from other sources like with some Japanese brands. This isn't to say that Atlanta isn't under served, just that some of these smaller areas being served may not have stores because their areas desperately need them.

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    No, but it still looks like a slightly close fit in the upper body. I don't think it looks bad. I think the fit looks very good. I'm just saying that IF it's uncomfortable, one size up might also look good too. This is just based off of my experience with my jacket.

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    It looks very similar to how my old RMC A2 fit. I like a slimmer fit on an A2, but given how restrictive RMC A2s are cut, you may have very little room there. I'm not sure what your comfort levels are like, but it took just a month or so of weightlifting for my RMC A2 to not fit anymore. Given that the sleeves are a little short as well, you might be able to size up and have it still look good and avoid the dreaded politician look.

    Great fit on the jacket, @Flash! I wish my WWII model fit me that well.

    I like Maynard's idea quite a lot. I have a couple of pairs ready to go, especially as I need to get my CSF 37's repaired after 2 years of wear.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Maybe not, but I think the heel is already a little lower than I would like in terms of balance of the design. I've been looking at those too, though. They're nice looking boots.
  21. dudewuttheheck

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I think those TMC boots look really good and making the heel shorter would make them look worse IMO. It would make the toe look even larger. It looks more balanced as it is now.

    As I've said elsewhere @Aries those arms look insanely good on the half belt. Gorgeous jackets.

    @Broark yeah those look way better in terms of construction than mine. Great pickup!
