Competition: Heavyweight Denim Championship Of The World 2011/12


Recommended Posts

Ok, something I've mentioned briefly in the small questions thread, which I have had a couple of PM's about, and spoken to a couple of you guys privately about. My idea for an all comers 2011 competition....

The Heavyweight Denim Championship Of The World 2011/12

As I have read through many of the various threads on Superdenim something which has interested me is the idea of comparing the heavier models made by various manufacturers, in terms of fade and durability. Obviously there are brands like Samurai and Iron Heart who we all know make some great, heavy cuts, but there are also the new DB x SF x SE x SF jeans, aswell as the new SDA's at BIG.

Ideally, I'd like to see some of the newer( (like me), or perhaps less frequent posters come into play here, us guys who haven't done any other competitions yet. Aswell as some of the more seasoned members to get a good mix of styles and wearing.

This seems like a good time to get a competition like this off the ground too, I have read that alot of you guys are looking for your next purchase/ project denim, as am I, so this could be fun.

The basic idea is this, a 24 month competition in wearing and abusing some heavyweight denim, 17oz and above.

edit: 03/01/11


I am literally getting swamped with PM's from people interested in joining this contest, and my wife is giving me dirty looks for the amount of time I am spending responding to them, and not spending time with my family, so......

From here on in the contest will be open to all comers, as i originally intended, the following stipulations still apply.

1) Denim must weigh over 17oz.

2) Denim must not have been worn prior to 01/12/10.

3) Closing date for entry will be 01/02/11, you must have at least ordered your chosen denim by then.

4) We expect an update every month from ALL participants, two months without an update will be considered MIA and you will be removed from the contest (without good reason for not updating obviously).

5) If you are already in a different competition wearing heavy denim, feel free to cross compete in this aswell, the more the merrier.

I think that this could be alot of fun for all involved, PM me if you are interested in signing up.

Important And Exciting Announcement - Championship Belt

Ok, so there has been a few mentions of a prize for this suddenly mega contest. So in keeping with flavour of our Superfuture Heavyweight Denim Championship Of The World theme I have been in contact with our good friend James at Obbigood to see what they could do about coming up with a "boxing" style championship belt. I sent James the following picture to give him an idea of what I was talking about, and this is what he had to say about what he could do for us...


The shape will be as wat you have shown me in pics, boxing champion style. The front part will be 8" diameter, curve down to the back 4" width.

On this 4" width, we will separate it into 1" double strap for buckle securing.

The whole belt will be made of Natural Veg Tan leather (yet to confirm the thickness). But on the front part, we will stitch up a round Black Natural Veg Tan leather.

On this Black round leather, the wordings, "SUFU HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP' will be formed by silver dome rivets around the circumference. And in the middle, the wordings 'DENIM".

We will also add some conchos to spice up the belt a little.

I think that sounds unbelievable personally, and I'm so stoked that James could help us out in this way.

Donations are no longer required, the belt has been paid for.

I'd like to thank obbigood for this amazing support and help.


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I present to you the 'BELT RAJA', the king of belt!

This is wat we call it.

- 15oz Natural Veg Tan leather as base.

- Stone oiled distress leather and black burnished leather for lettering.

- Added hair-on-hide, stitched on.

- Basketweave stamping on stone oiled distress leather

- Hand-stitched 'Heavy Weight Championship' in cursive font.

Part of the process VIDEO

I only thought of it last night man, but I'm pretty sure the rules could be bent for the sake of 5 days if you're really interested. Unless you've been climbing mountains or something in the last few days I cant see what difference a few days would make over a 24 month contest. You want me to add you?

Awesome. Its started for those who have their jeans, I'm just waiting for an answer back from Gordon at BIG about shrinkage on the 21oz denim, then I can pay for mine. I'm going to be another couple of weeks before I step in the game.....but over 24 months, y'know the rest.

Great mix of denim in the competitors so far, especially if Beats can be talking into throwing the Busters into the mix.

There must be someone out there going to be on those new SDA Black Pigs? They look amazing,

Samurai S5000VX Take 5 Collab 17oz (17oz zero denim)

Hey guys!

I want to join in with my 21oz double volantes that I bought a few weeks back!

Am I good to go with the contest? I'll post pics regularly! I do have pics In both the waywt-thread and the "so I'm having a pair of jeans made"-thread.

I've worn these maybe 4 days a week since I bought them and have done o e initial one hour soak on them.

Please be kind to me! To let you know some more about me, I'm 29 years old turning 30 in July and I live in Sweden. Where heavyweight denim is to prefer since it's winter here a loooong time.
