    What are your jeans doing today?

    I have not been on sufu for a while, and I should post some updates on the TCB contest thread, but here are some photos I took on a hike up the Pacific coast which was mostly in Olympic National Park a couple months ago. I actually did most of the hike in my TCBs which was funny because hiking in denim is against all Official Hiking Rules. It was actually kinda funny because I ran into a guide group of completely newbie hikers (who had camped nearby) and I apologized to the group leader for setting a horrendous example to them. He said, 'Yeah, if one of them showed up in jeans at the trailhead I would not had let them on the hike." Let it be known though, I did have appropriate gear and clothing. After this trip we got hit with 120F (49C) temps outside my house (officially 108F in the city I think) which sucked. I was shocked this tree was still standing. But maybe not for long. TCB S40s in front of a camp. I did wash them after the trip and repaired the back of the cuffs. It was actually hard to find campsites on/near the beach because it was a super full moon and high tide brought the water all the way up to the trees and most of the terrain was very cliff-y beyond the beach Threatened rain all trip, but fortunately none came down, One campsite. The water eventually lapped up to that piece of driftwood beside the tent. Evening panoramic (a bit obviously stitched together) of the cove we spent most of the time in. During most of the time, the tides blocked off both ends so no one could pass so it was very cut off. During low tide one could walk out through the tidepools to those large rocks way in the distance. Someone collected a bunch of crabs. Big whale bone. There were a lot of bones and huge pieces of vertebrae and shells in mound that had just been recently exposed so it was clearly a processing area in the distant past. Tide is going out in this tidepool. Hole-in-the-wall. The tides totally block this during high tide, but in this case one can escape overland up the steep cliff on the left.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    My daughter had a virtual spring singing recital today, and the theme was "dress like an adult" and she dressed up like me. I am still mentally 17 years old though. Maybe not her teacher's intention. She did want to wear the contest jeans, though, which I reclaimed after the recital.

    I have not been on a plane in a couple of years at least, but it is a good thing I have been recently vaccinated as holy [email protected]$! there were a lot of people in the airport and the plane was completely full. But here is a picture of the jeans. Funny how the light makes both legs look different. Flying Alaska as I almost always do. Here are some bonus desert pictures at my destination

    @lee porter I believe you ordered the 42 2000t already, but I have a pair of the 2000t No.1 denim in size 42 and the measurements are as follows. I believe they were one washed when purchased. I have probably worn them less than 20 times. My spouse got them for me on a trip to Japan a couple of years ago. I wish she had not gotten the tapered fit, but it was a great gift regardless. They are really only worn when I need a pair of unfaded jeans since I have too many, well, assuming the loud red embroidered gulls are still cool wherever I am going. original (cm) / cold soak / current waist 96.5 / 94 / 97 front rise 28 / 28 / 28.5 thigh 35.5 / 34 / 34 inseam 80 / 80 / 80 leg 19.5 / 19 / 19 Pictures, since I busted them out to measure. Model is "Lot.2000T (No.1 / MOMOME Embroidery / Red) Slim Tapered Fit"

    Went to the coast for the weekend. Usually go clamming this time of year, but the toxin levels are currently too high. But I guess the bivalves are happy about that. I may be looking west over the Pacific to Japan, but I am more likely to be looking at Russia. I had a campfire last night, but the jeans seemed to have repelled any smoke smell. The thread almost got relegated to the second page!

    @andrewrose These look great! I hope mine look like yours after my first wash.

    These have been worn everyday since the start, but perhaps like many others the pandemic has put a big damper on the fading. These are perhaps a bit darker in real life; looking at my original pictures they are ever-so-slightly lighter than they were new. I have not washed them yet, and given the pandemic may not have to for quite a while. The fades on the rear left pocket are from a metal cat thing my wife gave me specifically to fade in these jeans. I am normally not into that but she was a good sport about me getting another pair of fancy jeans I didn't really need. The ear points are going to poke through soon, I think.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @chicote My jeans always fade primarily on the thighs and not so much the seat. I actually wish they would fade less on the thighs to make the whiskers a bit more prominent, but my efforts always come to naught. I don't know what I am doing to get them; no adult activities involved. Anyways, here is an example.
