Blargh! Looks like Sufu was updated and it automatically closed the contest poll?! Will see what I can do, but it seems editing has no effect

Since we're not supposed to comment in the other thread, I just wanted to say damn to @corporalclegg, that pair came out beautifully! The whiskering is particularly lovely.

Wowzers guys, so many great pairs, just had a glance at the final thread and super hyper mega repped as much as I could haha! Felonious, Corporal Clegg and Pudas your pairs are just ridicolously good!

I totally agree with the Italian/Swedish/human/car hybrid above. The standards in this contest have been very high, which I assume is mainly due to the jeans! In fact, they're so good that S&S should do another run of them.

Well done to all who participated!

High praise from you two! Agreed that the #17 denim is something special. Would love to know if it's still in production, or was deadstock used for the contest. If there's enough for another run, it would be a surefire hit. It keeps a lot of visual interest after repeated washings, never really fading to that very even blue you get on some denims (including the OAXX fabric to some extent). Super comfortable after a brief break-in, too.

Quick question on voting etiquette here for participants: I take it the right move is to vote for the pair we like most that is not our own?

Love the contrast aho, especially from hip to knee!  Jeans don't get any better looking IMO.

Might have to wait till Thursday I think to get some good pictures up, been busy during the day with work and no sunlight by the time I get home (Fall is here!). Love seeing all of the entries so far, it's definitely going to be hard to decide.

@Felonious, I wouldn't blame you if you voted for your pair! :D

If I remember correctly, this was indeed the last batch of the #17 denim, we tried to use something rare that had just enough fabric for the contestants. That said, there appears to be a new OAXX denim according to the Ooe instagram feed which looks mighty interesting! Thanks again everyone, been a wonderful ride so far...Wonder if anyone will come out of nowhere with a final mind blowing entry?

They are discussing a new Ooe contest over at Denimbro at the moment

That'll be awesome to follow...I have my sights set on the TCB contest but this will be the first time in maybe 3-4 years I haven't worn a pair of Ooe's :o In fact, I think it was only a pair of Warehouse 1001XX that pulled me away (last dedicated pair before that was the FIRST Ooe contest lol)

I hope there will be a new run of a ooe contest soon, would love to join

seems there is a high demand for it

Demand is pretty high BionicEye, especially relative to relatively limited supply.  The #17 fabric is very nice with its cross texture but, for me, Ooe is really about the fit and the people that make them.  For whatever reasons, Ooes fit me better than jeans from any other manufacturer.  They seem to get the subtle contours right, with slightly roomy hips and thighs while keeping the waist and legs relatively trim.

^Much appreciated! My favorite part of contests is seeing how the same fabric can produce such different results, which are often super specific and particular to each wearer. I can't recall how many I've been in at this point, but it's clear to me now how similarly all of my jeans wear in, attributed to how often I wash and dry from normal wear, and foregoing any "setting the fades/whiskering in" phase during the first few months for more contrast. I also love contrast, but it's not natural or indicative of my lifestyle, and so my jeans don't reflect that. Looking forward to the next contest, but it'll be terribly difficult not putting these on every day anymore once the TCB's arrive!

This might be your best pair yet Aho. Your washing regime really brings out the best in this denim!

I obviously had to drop out due to not fitting into my pair but I just wanted to say you guys did a great job, it has been great fun (and a bit bittersweet) to follow the progress.  You all should be proud for a job well done.

      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.

      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!
