WGMDS - It's a Kiev 4 that I snagged off of ebay cheap. I think I'm going to flip it after I put a few rolls through it.

Mapz - really fabulous shots. And super jealous of that EG shirt.

Robbie - I think they're turning out much better than you give yourself credit for. Can't wait to see how mine look post wash.

ah. whoops! i remember you saying something about leica previously and i just assumed incorrectly. out of all of the "cone indigo ducks" that have been a sort of craze recently, it seems like these left fields are the best, and the smartest. treating such a canvas like a pair of jeans doesn't make sense to me... but hey, maybe it's just me.

Been keeping an eye on the progress of this contest. I was thinking the same thing, I don't understand why so many guys are treating these the same way they would a pair of jeans. i'm hoping someone (Robbie, Hooligan?) goes for nicely washed and worn in look rather than contrast, contrast, contrast. not that you don't want a little whiskering, but I'd like to see someone break the mold and produce something that at the end of the contest doesn't look like a pair of flat heads or samurai.

i think the conscious decision to not wash them as often might stem from wanting to keep them dark rather than having high contrast fades. i would purchase something that looked like that in a "no change" fabric simply because i love how they look dark. my two cents.

I was a little apprehensive to wash at first because I wanted them to stay dark as I really love how well these dressed up. But they are indigo, and this is a contest so I want them to show some wear. I think I'll give them quite a few more washes through out the summer. It's already 90 here, I can't imagine what summer will be like once we've moved back to Oklahoma.

Washed mine yesterday. I now have grey chinos. Sorry about the bad lighting. Sun was going down.

Yeah. First machine wash (soaked 3 times prior). Cold/gentle. Not sure why there's so much crocking, but I dig it. I just don't think I'll be able to do another machine wash at all if I want to still wear them to work

just did my first real wash at the end of 4 months after wearing them raw from day one. the pre and post wash pics are taken at different times of the day which explains the colour variations, even though they are still pretty dark in real life. I guess it shows the depth of the cone denim in a really interesting way.

on with the pics.....

the inseam shrunk 1â€, all else remains roughly unchanged after wearing them while still damp to get back some stretch.

poor picture quality as it's taken from a moving bus, but your suspicions are correct. yes that's a goat, and yes it is waiting for the bus.

I realize most of my updates involve cars....

Today it was spent at Burbank's Johnny Carson Park and the "Road Kings" car clubs, annual car show.

Awesome cars and trucks... what more is there to say. You can see a lot of these same ones every Friday night at Bobs Big Boy.

IMG_0638.jpg

These two were cool as they were a matching pair of Rolls Royce's...

IMG_0639.jpg

Then keeping the SoCal theme of cars, we stopped at In N Out for lunch.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. It's been crazy. My girlfriend was in town this weekend and now I'm getting ready for finals...

Anyway, here is my May 1 update. Unedited, quick snaps, but everything is pretty true. No wash, no soak.

I don't know what you do in those pants of yours... but they're going to have really amazing fades when you're done. You should get those holes fixed or you won't have a pair of pants by the year is up....

Thanks guys. I think I'm going to pay Selfedge LA a visit when I'm in town and have them patched up. My pocket bags are shredded and and the holes are starting to get a little out of hand!
