I think when my jeans develop holes and rips, I'm going to use 21 oz. selvage iron heart denim to patch em' up with......

These sorahikos that I bought 3 years ago - bought them in one wash state, the rest is all me

That is a very unusual fade you have there on the left leg...it sort of seperates two sets of whiskers (hard to explain). I love when old jeans get that "aged" color...that brownish tint to them. Great jeans!

man, those sorahiko's look sick. i'm tempted to sell my black over-dyed sorahiko's because of the fit, but looking at those jeans make me want to keep them, even though i probably can't get a fade like that with the black jeans.

RRDS.

They fit the best, are the most comfortable, are showing wear the best, feel the greasiest, and are the jean that I most look forward to putting on.

That may change when I get my Somets, though.

there's a little bit of that on both legs - it's from the wrinkles right below where the pocket linings end. the wrinkles get more pronounced with the more stuff I have in my pockets. it's the weird unexpected natural wear patterns from age like this that bart sights will never get quite right.

Here's my second favorite: a pair of Pherrow's Stormy Blues that I got in April 2004. The pocket linings were originally plaid flannel - looked cool, but when the flannel started to spring holes, they went fast. I had to get the pocket linings replaced. These also have a little of the honeycombing right below where the front pocket linings end that was commented on with the sorahikos.

Insane. How did you wash those?

I don't really have a technique. I usually wear them 4 or 5 days a week when I first get them and wash them about every six months. The reality is that I'm kind of a lazy dirtbag.

i am pretty keen on my new the flat head 3001...the denim has incredible vertical sirations, and as Ryu has said and now the boys at take5 they easily get vertical falling...it's kinda ironic since the board seems to moving toward narrower jeans that i go in the direction of cowboy like hipiness and anti-fit of a repro [actually a hybrid '66 505 with hidden rivets]... i used to swear by super skinny jeans...oh well...still have to get fit pics and will post a full report...

do you wear them hard? work in construction, etc...?

nope...graphic design. I don't baby any jeans I wear. The only real technique I use is I spray them down with starch and blow dry them dry as I'm wearing them while sitting down. This sets the wrinkles for the hige to develop. BTW, these are the jeans that Donwan Harrell jacked for the detail of every button on the fly being a different metal color.

My rag&bones...deffinately... I have a pair of Helmut classic cut/classic denims I want to start working on soon though, and I like them, but not the extent of my rags...no one has any before/after pics up here yet of their rag&bones so thats what keeps me going on these.

Tony both of your jeans look amazing, particularly liking those stormy blues... the color/contrast is righteous and the wallet fade is nice.

new standards all the way.

i just bought my third pair, and although i've tried repro's and have spent much of the last four months trying to bust up some stubborn 5EP's and am fully on board with the superior denim quality of these brands, i just can't pry myself away from them. the fit is perfect. it seems (to me) like 5 decades of varying fad's of denim fit has tought somebody something.

I also like my twelve year old stone washed 501's, though. remember when 40 bucks for jeans was expensive?

My favs are my howies, from a couple years ago, bought for 30 quid in the sale,

I didnt wash them much cos I just wanted to wear them so much, they were incredibly dark and bled like hell, jackets, shirts, walls, etc ( my apcs just dont transfer by comparison ).

They were my first pair of selvedge jeans and are responsible for getting me into denim, what fascinated me most was the streaky fading, like strata going down the legs, ( is this vertical fading hap??). Super tight weave, unlike the apcs.....

I did a sea wash on em and now they are turning blue rather than blackish indigo, love em.

totally. what the fuck happened?

The sad thing is that we will never be able to go back to "normal" denim. It is almost impossible for me to wear a pair of 501s I've had for the past 12 years. i feel ashamed.

tell me about it. even rrds feels so papery after getting used to the intensity of samurai or canes. it's like an arms race with yourself-----only on your legs.

where's all this lap fade coming from? Maybe I just have a weird lifestyle but my jeans haven't produced any of that gradual fade down to the knees...just whiskers and combs
