Heavyweight Denim Championships 2013 - 2015 - Official Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay I read some questions regarding disqualifications so I thought I should make a post (I am normally only lurking around the forum) I have been gone for some time due to several reasons

I spent most part of the summer traveling playing fieldhockey in the Euro club championship and Euro nations championship and the climate did not work well for 23oz jeans. I also changed my training to get ready for the beach ;) and lost 11kg so the jeans are a lot bigger on me these days. Also I found out that I did not have time for all the minicompetitions and I prefer to wear jeans and read about them more than taking selfies.

 

Anyway my jeans do not have a lot of evo but I have been wearing them constantly since the weather got a bit colder. I think I have started to get some nice subtle fades and I have also only worn my Lee 101Z 23oz with braces/suspenders. I think I have started to notice some leg twist in them as well which I have not decided if I am happy with or not.

 

So am I still in the competition or have I made myself disqualified?

^ Less words, more pictures.

 

If you don't like taking selfies then take pictures of your jeans.

We talked about this a lot more in HDC round 1 - there were updated lists of contestants and those who didn't contribute, were disqualified (I hope I recall it correctly). I am glad, that this wasn't a topic here yet. let's keep it this way. But logging in to tell us that you weren't active, didn't do the competitions and don't like taking pictures of jeans - I am seriously wondering, why you are taking part in this competition then?

 

(No hate, serious interest on my part!)

It is disappointing when there were so many people who really wanted to compete but were too late to register.

For me the competition is about the end result, I do not expect to win and frankly I do not care if people sand their jeans because it is their loss they shorten the life of their jeans. I joined the competition to see others updates and in the end of the competition compare my results with you other guys. I will make sure to take some pictures today and maybe later on in the competiton I will take part in the competitions as well.

 

I guess I am a slow starter and right now there have not been much evo anyway

So thats all my pictures for now, the buttons I have used for the suspenders are old buttons from the Swedish military that was used for uniform pants that my granddad saved from the second world war. 

 

I hope you liked the pictures even though they are a bit shitty

I do agree with this. Although I realise it is a competition and we've got loads of prices, I feel like the vibe is all about getting some nice stories to go with the jeans and build an even closer community. So far I'm just enjoying the ride and I plan on keeping it that way.

Interesting part on the Lees - they show barely no roping. Haven't seen this in a while. I like how thick and heavy they look, definitely an interesting variation from the normal pairs.

November update. Wear period unknown because I wore them pretty inconsistently since the start of the contest. They've hit water three times; two for initial and one to clean them up a bit. Jeans have help up pretty nicely so far, only frays on the hems from cuffing, and the beginnings of a crotch rip.

 

Pictures (not the best because I was in a hurry):

The patch got a much needed treatment the other day. I dug up an old picture from when the jeans first arrived for comparison. Actually a bit surprised that it's gotten so much darker with only ~5 months of wear.

Here's the fit after the 6th wash a couple days ago:

I tried to get some photos for contest 4, but my camera was acting up and couldn't seem to get good shots.  Guess I just need to rely on the cell phone camera instead.  This is about the clearest shot I got... Holly was loving the little bit of snow up City Creek Canyon.
