ROY X CONE contest, 1.1.11 - 2.1.12

Recommended Posts

Hahaha, that's the funniest thing I've seen all week.

Oh, and I sent out my package a couple days ago! It's supposed to go to the UK, but I don't know if it will arrive by Xmas. It should be there by NYE, though.

Well guys! It's time to submit my final pictures. I sold my D300 this week in order to purchase a Leica M3 so I figured now is as good a time as any to post my pictures. Because I got my pair from Ranon more than halfway through the contest I figured I should post both pairs that I wore this year. I started wear on a pair of original Roys on January 1 and received my contest Roys from Ranon on the 10th of June.

(these are not submission pics)

11.75 months of daily wear, multiple soaks, 5 machine washes IIRC.

I need to take better pictures, or get photoshop, or both.

Cool robbie, you gotta learn to use the damn beast though. You've got a nice pair (of jeans) right there.

Daniel, I started my pair on 6 Jan!

What the hell is this? I hope it didn't cost much as it's going in the bottom of a heavy trunk with a big brass railroad padlock. The thing freaks me out.

Ok fellas ..... i DO apologize a lot for being an arse and not posting a single line in the last 3 months. No excuses, nothing went wrong badly enough in my life to explain that. i just went on and been bored a bit with all that stuff. moved in another place, went abroad a lot and man, time goes on.

but my internal clock told me i would def. be a sucker if i couldn't be able to at least respect you all by posting before the 2.1.12 evo pics of the roys...

so here are some pics. to be honest i stopped to wear those about 5 months ago. Too tight. so you wont have fit pics, unless i am drunk enuf to do it. but i am such a fat ass now that i doubt i could let me go to do so.

i will take a couple of hours tonite to read the thread.

Almostnice, i will drop you a line later. hope your shit is geting better.

Many thanks and respects to all of you who kept on posting unlike me....

and wtf hapened to sufu?

Nice to hear from you, doc!

My pair is currently undergoing it's last wash of this contest - final submission, hopefully, early next week :)

I think it's best if we hold off on posting final submissions until everyone is done. That way we won't have to sift through 50 pages of the thread over a couple months to see everyone's final submissions. So maybe put together your final submission post (take pictures at least) as soon as your year is done, but wait to actually post until the last contestant has finished his year.

Speaking of which, who was the last person to initially receive their jeans? Paul T, right? When did he actually get them?

Wouldn't it make the most sense for folks to email all final submission photos to you, Daniel, since you are tallying the votes? Then you could create an album in flickr/photobucket/whatever, and then post a link to the album?

I'd be happy to help with compiling the photos if you want.

why don't we do a separate thread for the final photos, just to keep things simple?

My jeans arrived on the 21st.

By the way, has everyone seen Kiya's announcement in the Roy thread, that his new jeans use unsanforized (I guess he means loomstate) Cone fabric, the first that's been made in 60 years? $330 I believe. They look terrific but of course it underlines what a bargain we all got. I'm glad if we helped get that ball rolling...

Doc, nice to see you back!
