I'm sorry for being so passive in this contest...my personal bad luck caused this fucking apathy. Anyway, it was an honour to be part of this contest. Even if I'm not a big fan of the coke bottle cut of them Roys (waistwise)- a great jean and one of the best contests ever. There's still plenty of life in them, I wish I'd wear them harder. Great to see the the development on the other pairs- the best may win. Here are my humble final updates. Cone rules!

( due to bad weather I had to shoot my ROYs inside with neon light. The colour is more greyish and a bit lighter in reality)

Here's my fave bit - the "R" from where ROy is embroidered on the pocket lining has worn thrui the outer denim.

an "r"??? Sorry, but I don't see it. I do, however, see the face of the Virgin Mary.

:P

I replaced one of my final pictures under the wire. It was on the same day as the 'sport shoot'. It was intended to showcase a nice Lee acquisition, but it will suit this application better than what was there. It was in better lighting, and until my photography skills improve, my accidental pictures will probably be better than my intentionals.

Life and things delayed a few picture additions. First is from the last official day of the contest for me. Jan 1st. Since my front fades were much better than my rears, I thought a couple hours in an arthouse theater seat with my wife and brother might make some last minute advancement. Leave it to Werner Herzog to do a documentary about prehistoric cave paintings in 3D.

The local blizzard had me trapped at work and the parents house for two days with no camera and no ROYs for the picturesque snow shoveling. We had no car work so I shoveled the stations lot of snow for nine hours as it continued to fill in behind me. The next day repeat. Then it warmed up like crazy and I made it home to join the 150,000 people with no power for half the week. So I polished boots by candlelight. (That's got to be up there with sewing with an old union special, right?)

While most of the snow was melting, the giant bergs we built by hand had to be shifted. Luckily the crew that was on hiatus from installing our new carwash let us use this thing. I made sure that at least the ROY chambrays were with me this day.

Last call for belt photos, too!

This is going to be hard to choose just three pairs of Roys.

Disgusting day. 1/15 of a second at f/1.7 and my hands are too shakey.

But the jeans are dry, at least.

I'll follow up with the official set when it brightens up. But I love this fabric, it's been a very worthwhile year.

Roy6, are you in touch with Cory? Can't we get him to submit pics? I am happy to try Farhad. Who else has gone awol??

Thanks for the reminder Dkatz. I've been getting into work when it's dark and getting out when it's darker, so hopefully I can snap some final pics this weekend. Just wanted all to know I haven't forgot and intend to post.

Talked to Cory, he'll try to get them in soon, but says they haven't gotten a lot of wear.

May change my final pics then, thought Dkatz said the 23rd or 24th Jan?

Not happy with my pix, so will try and get some more up this weekend.

Hang on, if he's a postman, he can post anything (well, maybe not livestock).

But still... it's about the taking part. He's posted some lovely photos so we need him in at the close!

Looks like we're extending the "deadline" to this weekend. Voting will be open Monday 30 Jan - Monday 6 Feb. And no, robbie, you can't vote for yourself!
