ROY X CONE contest, 1.1.11 - 2.1.12

Recommended Posts

While we're waiting, twiddling our thumbs, I'd just like to announce that almostnice is the winner of the mini belt contest by unanimous decision of the judges (me and mikecch)! While everyone's belts are looking great after a year of wear, the wear and color of Markus' belt are outstanding. I hope mine looks this good some day! I've been in touch with him via email, and I'll post his prize once he claims it.

zissous belt, one year now, oiled twice + an unplanned riversoak

We're a gang of ruggedly handsome denim clad dudes.

Nice! Markus well-deserves it.

It's good that you've kept us in the loop about the belt contest.

Well.... it's hard to imagine the judges might be doing more important things than looking at pics of butts, but maybe, just maybe?

I know of one judge who's sent in a verdict, and one who ain't. I'll chase up the latter...

I got various emails from the judges stating that they were holding out as a protest until my pair were submitted to them, but I did tell them to go ahead and vote anyway. I don't need the reaffirmation of greatness.

I've had official votes from two of the judges, three to go. I'll attempt to apply more pressure this evening.

It should be noted that ringring was very prompt and the first one to turn in his ballot. I have sent him a smiley-face "I voted" sticker to wear on his lapel.

Oh, I wasn't implying impatience of any sort! It's just strange seeing this thread so quiet.

In the meantime, I gave my Roys another wash last weekend. I sprayed just a little stain remover on a spot of leather dye that I got on 'em, and it made a nice, bright clean spot amidst a leg of brown patina. I'll never do that again.

Votes in from Christophe Loiron. Just the Cone representative left to hear from.

So.

Close.

dkatz- you killed it man! it was awesome meeting you and seeing those in person. i think roy6's will take place while pault gets the finish. i'm not sure we'll ever see something as cool as this contest on superdenim again, it's been a fun ride.

It seems to me that this contest was about three things:

1. The journey.

2. Sharing an experience.

3. A beautiful pair of jeans.

Congratulations Daniel. You nailed all three.
