They look fantastic, very unique denim & fading pattern with this "horizontal falling"

^Honestly, I've lost track...I'm pretty OCD so I wash them whenever I feel they're dirty, which is likely more frequent than other people. I've been called out for my washer/dryer habits before on denimbro though (environment wise), so I've been honestly trying to cut down, at least on the drier action. Living in the city + public transportation = not always knowing what you're sitting in though, which is where I'm coming from with the OCD part :P

That said, this denim really does hold on to its indigo well, and doesn't really crock without wear. Surprised at how dark they still are! I should also mention, the hole in my right knee hasn't expanded, even though I've worn these non-stop since the contest started, so I've lucked out so far on not needing to send them in for repairs. I'm wondering if there'll be a darkhorse pair coming through at the end to blow us all away? I think we're coming up on a year already

 

EDIT: ^Scratch that, April 1st marks the one year

I recall us all wanting to extend to 1.5 years total, so ending October 1st? This would also enable anyone to participate in the upcoming TCB contest as well, which starts around September?

 @mrsmiff, lets say we end this contest on September 30th? ie: all photo submissions due then. Hopefully that works for everyone!

^ agree. it would be a shame to finish now as we start to see the greatness of the fades. Give those Ooe another 6/7 months of TLC!

the TCB 20's contest will start in september.

Yeah that sounds right, that way I can get a few more months of wear on my pair once they get back!
Hell, I'll be wearing them after the contest anyways I'm sure.

My pair is looking nutso lately, I'll have to post pics soon. Here's what i've been eating this weekend! 5 Rabanitos, best Mexican i've had in a longggggg time, can't believe it took me this long to go. Chicago dogs at Wieners Circle. And my standby favorite restaurant in all of Chicago, Longman and Eagle which I always take guests to, we had some friends in town. If pics are blurry, apologies, pulling direct from iPhone!

Just got my jeans back from Rain at Indigo Proof, she does really great work!
I only wanted the crotch repaired, as that was the only real sign of the jeans breaking down. Now that I have them on again I realized that I should've probably gotten them hemmed a little bit but oh well, hindsight and all that.
You can hardly tell there was any work done, her thread color matching is just great. Now to wear these jeans again! Feels great to have them back on.
Color of the denim are a bit washed out, but you get the idea.

they fit and look fantastic. I bet a tenner on the beardo cider maker for the first prize! Aho get's the dad fadez special award too, haha!

Who'll judge the pairs at the end of the contest? Poll? It'd be nice if you could get Ryo, Hiro and the dudes from S&S as a jury, too.

Got the jeans back from repair and wore them for a day or two then threw them in the washer and dryer.
Just look at that texture! I'll be trying to provide more frequent updates now that these will be on my legs regularly again.

^Not even going to lie, I wear my pair with the top two buttons undone with only my belt holding them up; Winter eating and inactivity has taken it's toll :D

      Time to officially kick off the contest now that the jeans have reached at least some of you!
      Fabric: A14 oz denim with a very light pink selvedge-ID made by a blend of US cotton. It was made to capture the essence of vintage Cone and I'd say it turned out very well. It starts out flat and uniform before it hits water, then it crocks like crazy. Should get some nice vertical falling. The fabric is made exclusively for Denimbridge by Yamaashi mill in Okayama on a Toyoda shuttleloom. According to Shingo it's a small factory which is an important factor for both Shingo and us in this project.
      If you want to see a little of how the fabric ages Shingo has started using it for his latest Denimbridge cut. http://denimba.com/denimbase/2018/11/03/23478 
      You can read more about the jeans on my blog indigoveins.com and also a piece on the guys behind the jeans.
      The contest length: The contest will run until January 31th. After that you will all have until February 28th to post the final pics.
      The prizes: The winner will win a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and the runner-up gets a €200 voucher from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      The jury: A jury of 5 will judge the contest winner: Shingo-san, Kuniyoshi-san, Jonas and Olof that runs Gbg Mfg and myself.

      Hey guys, I have some very exciting news to share. Soon I will release a collaboration I’ve done with my good friends at http://www.goteborgmanufaktur.se and Shingo-san of Denimbridge, sewn by the one man army Kuniyoshi-san of Double Volante in their new project Denim Base. 14 oz greatness made in Japan with a really nice vintage vibe to the fabric and a lovely olive herringbone fabric for the pocketbags. 
      Measurements:
      Size W26 W27 W28 W29 W30 W31 W32 W33 W34 W35 W36 W38 W40 Waist/inch 25 26 27 28 29 29.9 30.9 31.9 32.9 33.8 34.4 36.4 38.4 Front rise/inch 10.6 10.8 11 11.2 11.4 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.4 12.6 13 13.4 Back rise/inch 12.6 12.8 13 13.2 13.4 13.6 13.8 14 14.2 14.4 14.6 15 15.4 Thigh/inch 11.1 11.3 11.6 11.8 12 12.3 12.5 12.8 13 13.2 13.5 14 14.4 Knee/inch 7.5 7.6 7.8 8 8.1 8.3 8.4 8.6 8.7 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.2 Leg opening/inch 6.9 7 7.1 7.2 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.8 7.9 8 8 8 Inseam/inch 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 34.5 Shingo measures the front and back rise a little differently which gives different measurements from the BiG-method. Here you can see how he measured them if you scroll down: http://denimbridge.jp/overseas

      Since there's been talk about doing a Denimbridge contest for a few years now I was thinking now might be a good time with a special release. The jeans will be made in August so a contest could be possible to start late September.
      The prize: The winner will win two prizes: a pair of Denimbridge jeans, sponsored by Denimbridge, and also a prize from Göteborg Manufaktur.
      Pre-order: The pre-order is running until June 15th via https://goteborgmanufaktur.se/brands/goteborg-manufaktur/goteborg-manufaktur-x-indigo-veins-x-denimbase-gbg001-jeans-pr.html
      I'll have more info to share in the next couple of days and will post more details about the jeans. But for now, what do you guys say, shall we put up a contest?

      And here we are everyone! It's been an amazing ride with this pair of jeans, and I'm sure you've all enjoyed yours as well. But unfortunately as all good things must, we are now at the end of the contest.
      The Rules: The poll will remain open until October 25th, 2017, at which point Neil and Jeremy at Standard & Strange will choose the winning pair out of the top three highest voted. That said, the earlier you post your pair, the higher the chances of you getting more votes! 
      The Prize: Our lucky winner will receive a brand new pair of Ooe jeans! The details of the pair are not yet public, however, it will be an OA01 cut exclusive to S&S.

      I want to thank everyone again for their participation and camaraderie during this contest. I'm excited to see how they all turned out after this past year and a half of wear, in which we've all undoubtedly become connected with these jeans and experienced so much. Thank you so much to Ryo and Hiro for willing to do such contests and limited runs for jeans we couldn't get otherwise; Thank you to Standard & Strange for sponsoring the contest and supporting the denim community with overall awesomeness; and Thank you all for your participation and viewership of this thread, which helps the denim community make the world a little bit more of an interesting place!

      Note: Please keep this thread devoid of comments until after polling ends as we'll want to focus only on pictures from the entrants!
