All the best to you, masamune! the BB look promising, though they seem to be really slow faders, even on beatle who uses to thrash her jeans.

They're looking good. The denim was dipped 24 times in indigo so they'll be stubborn but come up really good in the end.

HC-SF-103 Samurai S5000vx 25oz 15th Anniversary Size 30

 

Decided to do a wash after little more than 5.5 months. Did a 60 degree Celsius machine wash and got a tighter fit, especially in the top block (expected since I didn’t soak the top block at the beginning). They did hold on to the color surprisingly well, not much of a difference in the overall color.

 

Had trouble photographing them though, when I did the before pictures I had daylight and for the after shots it was just not possible. So I did two after shots, with and without flash. But I do think that the flash photos resemble the daylight photos the best. My photo skills obviously are not the best.

 

Here are the measurements (size 30), before and after wash. Note though, that I stretched the waist and inseam when wet.

No problem fit wise J A little hard to button them up this morning but they were never uncomfortable.  Which is nice because I was a bit worried about them shrinking too much. But I must say that the 25oz denim is surprisingly soft and size 30 fit me a bit bigger in the waist compared to my pair of 21oz (the 21oz were a nightmare to put on after the first wash).

That's a lot of shrinkage in the waist.  No idea they would shrink that much.  Is that typical?  Nice fit pics mange

Thanks Davil. That is a little more than 7% shrinkage from unsanforized state which I don’t think is extreme since I didn’t soak the waist and has been wearing them for 5+ months. On the other hand, there are room for my measuring errors and how much I stretched the waist when measuring.

 

Fortunately they will stretch back easily. My experience is that when I have bought denim in a larger size to add for the shrinkage, they usually end up to big. For me the shrinkage and stretching usually evens each other out.

Cool! 

I will be on Gotland for Midsommar, so if you're going there sure, I could really recommend it! :)

A meet up in Stockholm around the time of midsummer would be great. I will most likely be in Stockholm at that time. I don’t know how many of us here are from Stockholm and around but send me a message and we can at least have a few beers!

not exactly epic eats, and no denim at the time, but the girl and I celebrated 3 years together last night with a nice dinner. 10 oz prime rib for me, 7 oz garlic steak for her. (apologies for the poor quality, the place isn't that well lit)

About two weeks ago the winter storm hit us in Ohio. Luckily flew back from Honduras a day before shit hit the fan (no denim pictures of me there, was mostly working/volunteering). I know -10F isn't that cold for some of you other folks here, but that's way colder than we're used to, so heavy denim was quite a blessing.

Happy New Year folks.

 

It's been a long while since I updated anyone. I should explain myself. Been really busy with both my day job where I was promoted 5 levels and given way more responsibility. Couple that with everything I've been doing for HOF and you can already tell sleep is a big problem. However, I've been letting off plenty of steam by emptying glasses, mugs, yards, bottles. Anyone following my instagram would probably see all of that haha.

 

Hope everyone is having a great 2014. Quick question to all contestants, is there anyone left who hasn't washed their jeans? Will need a show of hands to keep track. You're honour bound to be truthful ;)

 

Anyways, here's my update. It's a slightly heavy one, but I took some close ups for you to judge. They've been through almost 600km of cycling and all kinds of other stuff. Not a whole lot of contrast going on, but we knew the denim would behave this way. My sweat seems to be pretty acidic since it burned through a pocket bag. It's got holes on both sides haha. If anyone has any questions about them, just drop me a pm.

No wash for me yet, but I've only been wearing my pair since August. Planning my first wash for the spring most likely.
