@Foxy2 how did you manage to keep your patch in such great shape?

I took it off (the initial pair) and kept it separate with the intention of sewing it back on (to the second pair, which I ordered w/o patch) one day...

I couldn't either. Which on balance was a good thing.

(great pair!)

^ lol!
and then ...

@Paul T asked where the pair now goes: answer at this end: into the vault (a suitcase in the bottom of a cupboard...) ... lots of wear left, but now a nice step in the line of 'first jean' / 1890 / 1915 / 201 / 1920s...

plus a comparison of 50s and 20s fades for jollies... (whatever visual similarity is lost when felt in hand: 50s very solid, 20s very supple...)

I am wearing a pair of Re Lookus and want to wear a pair of Warehouse 1004xx but they're just as loose as the Tcb 20a if not more.

I'm breaking in a pair of TFH 3005s but aside from that everything else has been sold. Oh and a pair of Blue Blanket IJJs that actually fit better with my "reduced profile".

hello everyone

I think it's time to close everything, Inoue is back at work and his team has time now to evaluate the jeans.
therefore we have only the final submission by

1. Kamei Senpai
2. Volvo
3. Yabyoshi
4. Uncle Karl
5. Mariano Vittori
6. Jigsaw
7. Nayuta
8. Milehigh Evertonian
9. NycSurfer
10. PaulT
11. Bobbo
12. Srudy
13. FreeCharlesManson
14. Cucoo
15. bartlebyyphonics
16. Inimitable N!
17. AgingProject
18. Foxy

I had another look at the final pages of this thread to make sure no one posted here but didn't post on the appropriate thread (what a mess!). Looks like only 18 people posted their final submissions.

I've had this idea for a while of going back to some of those prized high-contrast fade denims and giving them the regular wash-n-wear vintage fade approach and see what transpires. With this in mind, my Momo 0901s are going to get some earnest attention finally. In the same spirit, I might throw some Eternal 884s into the rotation.

hello everyone!

Inoue asked me to proceed differently for the vote of the winners. He would like to pick the winners through a instagram vote. I have nothing against it but I thought, since it's different from what we agreed before, to ask you guys before giving him a confirmation. Hope this is fine for everyone.

Not against it, but how will you even do that?

Too difficult to pick a winner so he’s outsourcing- all the jeans look fantastic!

I think Inoue wants some free publicity for his brand!

I'm not involved in this contest so my opinion should be taken lightly .... but if it has to do with likes then I think it will just end up a popularity contest and the person with the biggest following will more than likely win

Inoue should post the jeans at his account to make it fair for all.

But people can still herd there followers to there jeans 

Imo it can't be judged off Instagram likes ( but like I said , take this with a pinch of salt )
