haha only kidding. just trying to throw you off your game ah_long. no one did that 'newspaper next to the bath tub' thing for this contest.

They might be patched up and beat to shit..but I think you'll make the 2 years if you want to.

Interesting back pocket fade. What do you carry in there?

Nice pair by the way.

interesting wear you've got on your pocketbags as well as the leather patch. nice to see how everyone has a different fading style going on. lovely!

another update from #66 here to keep the thread alive. had to move the repair patch from the inside to the outside since the wearing down at the crotch area was getting bigger. emergency repair job while on holiday but will touch up the other side once i get back home.

the denim is wearing in pretty nicely and these are some really comfortable jeans. love how the hardware wears down as well. they have been washed fairly frequently (more than 4 washes since i started). lots of loose threads but its all good since i can touch up on them by myself. the chainstitch has begun unraveling a long time ago but i just put in some handstitching to hold it in place and to secure the chainstitch. can get them restitched but i think i'll leave them as they are since i can leave my own handiwork in them. the patch is among the softest that i have owned and they are also wearing down, going going gone are the words. the fading on the denim reminds me a lot of some LHT denim with a lot of vertical falling as well. can't wait till the end of the contest to see how they turn out!
