Competition: Heavyweight Denim Championship Of The World 2011/12

Recommended Posts

oh almost missed this, taking pics in a few

edit * pics,

I'm pretty disappointed with the outcome. I really wish I could have wore them longer. I would estimate 12-14 months of solid wear. They went through 4 or 5 rounds of crotch repairs. The last repair was done and they tore a day later so I gave up, this was around the time I posted last in here. I can't wait for the day that the crotch is not the weak link with heavy denim.

Everyone's pairs look so great. Dingo that pocket shot is pretty epic.

It's been a great journey! Thanks for setting this up, Mega!

I've taken photos in 3 different light sources just to show how different the jeans look in differing lights. Click the link to zoom in on the photos.

i first went into the contest with a pair of 18oz IH-666Sod, but since i haven´t worn these enough in 2011 to justify keeping them, i went on and bought a new pair in december 2011!

already looking forward to HWDC2 and to HWBC...this time i´m going to wear the jeans and boots the full 2 years! really looking forward to that ;)

more info:

- IH-634s-raw 21/23oz denim

Fuck, I can't believe I didn't post up the pictures. Well, my jeans weren't nearly as nice as most of you so I highly doubt I would have even gotten considered to be nominated as everyone's pair is so nice. Well it was a fun two years anyways and good luck to the rest of you guys!

What news from the judges of the competition?

I get that the spirit is to produce examples of well worn denim, but after all this is a contest so there must be a winner.

Who will be crowned (...or belted?) the Heavyweight Denim Champion?

I am awaiting results from one remaining judge, and I hope to announce this Thursday.

If not, it will be delayed a week as I am in Jakarta.
