Nice beatle. Josh those have some serious definition.

think I may done now, was hoping these would last a bit longer but they only made it 2 days at work.

If I thought getting them repaired would help I would go for it but there is just no solid material left.

I'm not sure what exactly are the qualifications required for the "You're a drunk" award, but kybosh definitely wins the "I've destroyed my jeans beyond all recognition" award - sounds like he'll get a pair of jeans from Kiya's secret collection.

I'm withdrawing my Busters from the comp, I messed them up and they look like crap, so from now on I'll be solely rolling with my original choice, Samurai S5000VX 21oz.... (if the crotch holds)

Thanks man, I'm really quite proud of these :)

Nothing really "happened" to the Busters, I just tried to do a hard wash and wear on them for the last year, and I really don't like the results. The fade patterns on them are poor, they haven't lost much indigo at all, and they're just not "competition worthy". However, they were certainly a useful learning curve for Round 2, I already know how that one going to work :ph34r:

Final Competition Judging

Before the first competition began, I looked into how these kind of things usually work. The way other competitions work, and the way we're going to do it certainly for the first HWDC is by photo submission only.

It will be incumbent upon the competitors to ensure that they submit a sufficient amount of images, of the correct quality, to be judged by our panel. At the end of January Beatle will set up a new thread, entitled "Heavyweight Denim Championships - Final Update", these are the pictures which will go forward to judging.

I have asked Beatle to set it up, as the pictures will actually need to be posted by the competitors in the original thread, and the Beatle will transfer them into the "Final" thread, which will be kept locked and free from comments, to allow our judges a fair and unbiased comparison of everyones efforts.

This seems the fairest system all round, and it royally screws me as I am the worlds worst photographer.

So how's this competition going to be judged? Do we want to absolutely destroy our jeans or just go hard on them and then stop before it dies? I don't know how many times I should repair it before retiring them, haha.

It will be judged by our panel on wear and aesthetics, so if you think your jeans look better ripped, rip them, if you think they look better repaired, repair them, if you think neither, try to rip or repair them. The judges will either disagree or agree with you, and rips and repair (combined with wear pattern) look better on some jeans than others.

I guess the short answer is that everyones jeans will be judged individually and subjectively, by a panel of qualified people.

Amazing your results of wearing them the real hard way. They would really soon be ready for a proper retirenment at a safe place!!!

Shall I repair them for you?

I would really try my best to do this!!!

Still around! Took these today with my phone, no filters, photoshop or other stuff done!

Sadly they don´t get much wear these lately… I can´t wear them to work anymore since they´re too "scabby". Although my pupils would kinda dig them, I guess - as long as I don´t tell them how often I wash my jeans :-P

Also, I have to have the crotch repaired for what feels like the tenth time. I really can´t count the holes there! And once I have them repaired, the next ones start opening… And I can´t keep anything small in the front pockes, it would fall right through.

One thing is for sure: these are the greatest jeans I ever owned! :-)

Unbelievable results here!!!!!è!

I was away too long from this thread:

I really needed quite some time to check those 2 great pants from kybosh and Dingo!!!!

Just amazing results of using raw denim stuff the real hard way.

I can't wait for the second round. My current Strike Gold is just still at the beginning of their denim evolution after 18 month of daily wear in a row as my office pants.

And of course Mega I would still love to join for the second round

Can't wait to see them

Have to wait for checking the whole thread as long as I'm hooked up on a slow IPhone connection at my parents place in the Swiss mountains
