HC-SF-103 Smaurai S5000vx 25oz 15th anniv.

Season changes pictures. Sunny Sunday stroll in the park with the family. Went down to the “beachâ€, a couple of degrees below freezing point but no snow yet. Adding some zoomed in pictures on the jeans as well, hopefully some more contrast compared to my previous post. On these latitudes 25oz denim is definitely not to warm! Jealous on all the nice sunny beach and swim pictures.

Thanks Max Power, it is the Samurai W001 Heavy Curved belt. I know you used to own one as well. I had some concerns on the sizing but went with size 36 (jeans size 30-31). The size turned out to be just right, they do run rather small. Took some time to get used to the thickness but I love it. I have given it 2 treatments with Obeanaufs Heavy Duty LP since September when I got it.

Yes, I had it and sold it cause I sized wrong (36 with Jeans size 34). My A-103 in 38 fits perfectly. If you want to catch a glimpse of how it looks with wer, see one page back. I used Mink oil and Mustang Paste.

Looks great Max Power, beautiful patina. How long have you had it? I think I read it somewhere but I couldn’t find it now.

I am upset with how busy I got after moving to SF and how little I have worn my jeans and how little I kept up on this competition. 

 

:( 

 

If I missed a challenge am I completely out of the running?

Thanks mmbj, yes, SD1. But the waist was a bit bigger than my 21oz version of the same model. But if that is in general or just my examples I don't know.

Took a visit down to Santa Ynez valley for wine and beer tastings. Had quite a few interesting drinks, and quite a few drinks in general.

@slowitchu... I say: ''WASH EM!'' Interesting to see what will happen. Or are you planning to wear these without a single wash?

Yes, they could definitely use a wash, but I'm a bit skeptic about it. I like the look of how they are now. 

I've planned to wash them at the one year mark. Machine or hand wash.

 

 

Looking good there Slowitchu, keep on em!

Thank you!

Really good stuff recently guys, we're in sight of the half way marker for the contest and I'm already wondering if the dudes I had pegged as favourites will have any jeans left by the end.

 

It's absolutely fantastic to see so many folks still posting regularly and enjoying their denim, and I'm looking across all the forums. By the end of this thing we're all going to see some fantastic worn denim, which is what this thing is all about really.

I just got back from Spain visiting Madrid, Sevilla, and Granada for little over a week during my Thanksgiving break. I enjoyed myself for the most part, it's an interesting country. I had high expectations although I felt the country was a bit hyped and over-romanticized. Highlights from my trip was some guy trying to pickpocket me and I ended up raging on him/giving him a forearm shimmy and my dad stealing bottles of wine from the hotel lobby when the bar closed and drinking them together.

 

After I got back, I did my first official machine wash. Looking at the other contestant's denim, I have no idea how you guys get such intense fading.  I feel like I beat the crap out of mine and after my wash my combs just look sad.  I am now accepting it like any other shortcomings in life and moving on. :)

The challenge says Epic Eats, are we talking quantity or quality?

Ok maybe I didn't think this through properly, but here is my December update.  Surprised that my iphone picked up the falling snow as much as it did.
