Only worn these three days since the beginning of February. Hopefully the cold weather is over, and I can wear these another 20 times by the end of April. A bit threadbare for cold windy weather. They tighten up nice with a wash, but they're pretty beat and get stretched and sloppy after a days wear and hang at the hips. 

WH 1001, just under 430 days of wear.

Those 800s look amazing and are really making me want to start wearing mine but I still haven't gotten an answer from BiG on what they/Warehouse are going to do about the defective pair they sent me. About how much wear and how many washes on those? @Max Power

To be honest I lost total track. I think the effective wear is at least 1 year, maybe 14 months. And I washed a lot, probably 8-10 times in total.

Sorry for the photo spam.


These will probably only get moderate wear the rest of the DWC. They have entered a stage where they need quite a lot of maintenance IE repairs. 

Even my wife commented on them today. "Those jeans do not look that good anymore now". :)

I love them though. Hard to take pictures that make them justice.

These are incredible!


wish you could fade my jeans like that but I always go through the knees!

Both my DWC pairs has been away for repairs for almost 3 weeks. Got them back this weekend.

Only 2 more weeks left of the DWC. I doubt these will evolve much during that time span. :)

I will give them another machine wash though.

With apologies for the photo spam...but as with others before this is likely to be the last showing of my contest jeans. So...

253 wears and 8 washes later, here they are...my Oni 527ZR at the end of the DWC. I truly love the way they’ve faded (particularly as the weft colour has come through). Sadly though I fear it may not be long until the arse gives way. 

I'll soon replace the 527s in my rotation - more Oni, but this time the no-arc version of the 546 NIGR (Natural Indigo) jeans. Again these weigh in at 20oz, but will be my first foray into unsanforized denim…wish me luck!

Just noticed that my top button hole has started to rip. I need to fix that until wearing them further. Bha.
I guess it will be alot harder to fix it once it rips completely. I doubt I they will see much more use before the DWC is over.

We can open the final submissions thread now I think. I'm actually away next weekend when the contest officially ends, so let's get the ball rolling now for those who are ready.

I might just use some of the pictures I posted in the last 2-3 posts for my final submissions. If that is how it will work.

Is the DWC forum on the DWC homepage being used for anything?


Anyway. Here are some macros I took yesterday.
