    The 31/33 oz colored weft Old Blue's are out. Dunno how many are available as I originally thought they were pre-order only. (Un)Fortunately for me, I just got the TCB S40's for their contest so I am far less inclined to get these. Well, I really want to get them (colored weft super heavyweights!), but good judgement is winning out. I am glad they aren't green or olive weft as I would have already ordered them. Pictures from their site. They definitely have gone full western cosplay over the past few years.

    I posted earlier about how it wasn't as bad this year in Washington State, but well clearly it was too early to say that. Here is a picture of what it looked like yesterday morning (credit to the person in the watermark). Not as bad today, though, but it is still smoky.

    @Duodequinquagesimus I am pretty old now according to the kiddies and my spouse, but I am still about the lower rise, never wash (ok I will wash sometimes) fades honeycombs stacks whiskers... and cats of course. I am all about loose fits, though, and have never liked tight jeans.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    I was going to put these in the TCB contest thread, but they are more appropriate here. My first wearing of the contest jeans! The progeny took more pictures of the jeans from various angles but they didn't really come out great. Downtown Seattle skyline over Lake Washington. The floating bridge to the right is the western terminus of Interstate 90 and leads to Bellevue. Mount Tacoma (Rainier) rawring over the landscape. A friendly heron. Maybe not friendly to the fishes.

    I don't even remember the last time I saw a newspaper for sale (my brain probably just edits them out), so I am just using an electronic version for the date. I was bored waiting for Sep 1 so I ended up hot soaking them again and did get more shrink in the inseam and rise. I wish I got even more shrink in the rise as it will take some getting used to. There is also a picture of my previous main pair (NBDN Lord Leviathan III 32+oz) that are sad they are getting replaced for the next 18 months. I am kind of sad, too. I will probably break these in walking about a local park later.

    @Dan_F I specifically asked for the patch on my pair; it's not a standard thing. I saw on Instagram at least one other person got the patch but they got theirs on the inside on a pocket bag.

    @julian-wolf I really wanted to get the No Shampoo Club t-shirt but my spouse barely tolerates the $$$ I spend on fancy pants and I did not want to get into a discussion about $60 T-Shirts. Though in retrospect I maybe could have gotten them both and rolled the t-shirt price into that of the jeans.

    So to help (or to increase?) people's anxieties here are some measurements of my rigid 38 pair after a 30 minute hot soak with agitation in my bathtub (hang dry). Hot in this case is whatever temp came out of the hot tap. I am comparing the numbers to the OW chart. Size 38 OW Chart => Rigid after hot soak WAIST 96 => 91 (95) THIGH 34.8 => 33 (33.5) RISE 35 => 35 HEM 23.4 => 23 The two numbers in parenthesis are the measurements after I tried them one for only a few minutes. As one can see, the thigh number is a little past the low end of what I would consider acceptable variance (0.5 in / 1.25 cm) and the waist number is a whopping 2 in / 5 cm off. I tried them on and did not have any trouble buttoning and only had them on for a couple minutes... walked about, did a few squats, etc. I measured again afterwards and there was a lot of stretch in the waist and even a bit in the thigh. So the 38s seem to be reasonable. Obviously the smaller sizes may be different. I am glad they lost another inch on the rise. Still very high. My inseam shrunk to exactly what I wanted which was nice. Also no/minimal leg twist which is even nicer. Still thinking about doing another hot soak, but I think I probably won't and will just cold wash later.

    @roomtemplacroix did you get a lot of shrink after the second wash? I usually only soak/wash once, but was considering doing another (mine are currently drying now) since I think I read somewhere even the OW versions have some shrink left in them.

    I had been contemplating getting one of their Tabby Coats before the contest was announced. I think I saw they had special pandemic patches on their blog.

    Chart Measurements => My measurements for size 38 raw presoak: Waist 101.4 => 99 Thigh 36.3 => 36 Rise 37 => 37.5 Knee 27.28 Hem 24.5 => 24.5 Length 98.7 => hemmed to 85 I would usually get the waist flat and double it, but I couldn't in this case so the 99 is an actual circumference measurement... probably a bit more than 99 in actuality. They look a little like clown pants on me now, but should be great once they are soaked. I don't remember when I had a pair of pants with this high a rise... maybe when I was a kid.

    So here are my lottery pocket bags. Shipping definitely was crazy fast. I had them put their stay home pandemic patch on mine; did anyone else?

    What are your jeans doing today?

    The jeans were in southern Washington State along the Columbia River the other day. The jeans picture (not taken by me) was at a Stonehenge replica monument for the locals who died during WWI. It was very hot but the 32oz NDBNs were still comfortable. For me at least. Stopped by the nearby Maryhill Winery for a tasting and some snacks. Then went up Dog Mountain which was nice but had a 3000' elevation change in like 2.5 miles. I did put on hiking boots for that. Per some recent discussion in the General Nonsense thread, a fire had just broken out across the Columbia in Oregon, but it had just started so I did not see any smoke and had learned about it after getting back from the hike.
