Yeah. If anything, the lines from the dryer or washing machine are just as 'authentic' as any other fades - After all, they're jeans, and for most people with a dryer, that means they go in. Just another part of life. Besides, it's not like the lines are any more contrasted than the combs or whiskers. Cool pair.

Oh, speaking of contrast - Devin. Damn.

Thanks guys, they've got about 10 or so washes on them and still really hold their indigo, apparently my shins never touch anything, ha. The coloring is spot on but the "luminosity" of the pic is a little blown, they don't actually glow in the dark in real life.

TooAwesome

Vicarious

The vertical fade lining caused by the machine wash.

When I wash, i just throw them away inside the machine, rarely inside out.

Anyway, the top block of this jeans is killing me now.

Happy New Year 2013, heavy champs! :)

Contestant Number 1, Final Pictures For Consideration

Samurai S5000VX - 21oz

Worn - 15 months

Washed - 6 times

Ok, so I thought that I had better get the ball rolling, as this whole thing was my stupid idea, ha ha, also as I am pretty sure that I am not going to be in the winning positions :blush:

I won't be wearing these much again this month, as I'm road testing the MBB's for HWDC2, so here we are.

I made the mistake of trying to run with 2 pairs of denim for this competition, which is why I have limited Round 2 to only 1 pair of jeans. Even so, I have really enjoyed my time with these Samurai, the 21oz VX denim is fantastic and I am so pleased that we have some people wearing them for Round 2. If I had to make 1 negative observation, it is that the 100% cotton stitch does not hold together as well as poly cotton stitching.

So, here we are, no flash, no filters, no effects, just me, my jeans, daylight, and a point and shoot.

As I am no longer weraing them, I'd like to share them here and in the final pics thread.

#21: Iron Heart 634SB, worn for 1 year straight, then only occasionally due to bellygrowth (also the reason why I didn't post updates the last months).

@Max How many washes or soakes did your IH get?

Share this post

Hmmm. I think I did two handwashes and one soak. Something like that. No machine wash, as I wouldn't want to risk to shrink them to a place where I can't fit in or have a hard time to stretch them back out.

Max, was that a real concern with IH 21oz denim? I mean, it's sanforised (and also overdyed which takes out any remaining shrinkage) and stretches super easily. A shame not to keep wearing your jeans in this case.

Well, if you would wear a 34 in that model today and have stretched the 32 to a point where the waist fits but the thigh is just skintight, it is a concern. IHs denim is stretchier than others, but it can't compensate +8 kilograms (all muscles of course :rolleyes: )

Great updates Rafa and Max

Those pants have still plenty of life left

Max you should find a same sized person, who would wear them out for another year for you. At least I would have the same waist size.....

And Nietenhosen, those strong fadings and wear patterns are just amazing!!!

Yeah Max, just think about those great honey combs!

Too bad to hide them behind the doors

BTW: Anybody in Berlin around next week?

I'll be there to visit B&B and Capsule fairs from Tuesday to Friday.

Would be great to meet some other raw denim heads there
