Heavyweight Denim Championships 2013 - 2015 - Official Thread

Recommended Posts

Paid the balance on my MBBs, sent a (small) donation to Megatron, and then soon after got a call from my bank about "fraudulent activity." Apparently spending $325 on a UK web-store does not match my normal spending habits. Don't get between me and my denim :biggrin:

Got a size 34 yup!

Yeah, I had to go with the big boy size 36. This shrinking from tag size is tough on the self esteem.

She's already turning this whole thing on its head!

On my computer the picture is right side up. On phone it is upside down. Can someone else let me know what is going on with that pic?

Houston, we (may) have a problem....

From Giles at IHUK.

The current situation is that (apart from me losing even more hair) the shipment is in Liege (Belgique) waiting to clear customs. I am applying as much pressure as I can to get them released and I have TNT prepared to use their "special services" people to get the shipment to me. It is not a guarantee I will get them before Saturday.

Unless you have something useful to add or critical information to impart, please do not bomb me, Paula or Gav with emails and/or PMs. We all know you guys are desperate to get the measurements and get your jeans on your legs.

We will update here when we have useful news to impart.

I will update as and when I know more.

Damn...going by some of the pics already posted, and the wear already showing after some "amnesty" wears, all of us with the MBBs are going to have some catching up to do!

All MBB wearers (apart from me) will receive an extension at the end of the contest to cover any delay.

So I shouldn't go buy anymore sandpaper? ;)

Pfft. We've got an adult-sized slide running between the 5th & 6th floors here at work. I was planning on spending next weekend sliding down with various objects in my pockets.

Yeah it is just me (T-Bone was taken in this forum already) but I promise I'll trash my jeans really bad.

Great to have a heavy fader on board.

Can't wait to see the oncoming updates

Not your fault...damn those customs fools! Doesn't really matter when they arrive, they're gonna be awesome and we should be grateful to the IH crew and Mega! ...and yes, I am sucking up in the hope of future contest credit :ph34r:

Reporting from Melbourne Australia. Just got my t-shirt last thursday. A gloomy good friday, a hint that winter is coming down here.

Now waiting for my competing pair from Malaysia, apparently he's having a nice world tour without me before getting over here.

Great Strike Golds!

So, I got my Samurai 500XX Naniwa Special. It's a 50 pairs limited Edition for Aikidou, that somewhat celebrates the old City of Osaka - Naniwa. It features 19 oz denim, came with a nice coin pouch, uses the donut buttons of the VX models and has hidden arcs that will peak through plus stitched ones. Not sure about this particular detail, but I have to live with it now.

As it's a limited Edition, the tab has the "A" turned upside down.

The fit is really much like the 510, very long rise, wide legs, long inseam. I expected much more of a slimmer cut like the 0500XX but that's also what I have to deal with. Will soak in a minute and hope for serious shrinkage, looks I can need it.

W34:

waist 89cm

frontrise 30 cm

inseam 97 cm

leg opening 23,7cm
