Haven’t worn the comp jeans nearly as much since the last update. Maybe 4-5 days a week. I’ve mended the cuffs, pocket bags, the knees and a small hole on the seat so far. 12 washes.

Haven’t been using my TCB60’s at all for a while now because I was afraid that the knees would become unmendable. Tonight I finally got a minute to mend one of them.

I believe I’m at 10 washes and loads of mends. Contemplating when they’re going to be “best”. How long should one go?

Wearing my TCB60’s more infrequently now because of the state the fabric is in. Another mend today, at the left leg where my keys’re making the fabric thin. Still at 10 washes. Trying to hold off a bit now to create a bit more contrast.

Paper patch still in good condition but red tab is getting really tattered.

TCB60’s just had their 11th wash. Still wet.

I’ll get more pics up when they’ve dried.

Hi All,

 

I’m back briefly from the internet grave to give you an update on what is happening as we approach the end of the contest. Again, my apologies for not being around but these days I am almost entirely “internet retired” due to work, family and personal commitments.

 

So at the end of the contest I will set up final submission threads on both Superfuture and the Iron Heart forum for those still competing to put forward their final set of pictures, plus any information regarding their jeans that they may feel is relevant.

 

After this I will do a full review of the contest threads to ensure that only people who have actually “competed”, by posting regular updates throughout the duration of the contest.

 

The final step will be to set up an email address for contestants (and only contestants) to submit their votes for the winner, I can verify this through my email list.

 

The timescale will be….

 

-          One month after end of contest to submit final pictures

-          One month after final submissions for voting

-          Up to one month (probably less) for vote counting and issuing of the final prize.

 

The prize pot will be awarded solely to the winner, no second or third prizes, and the pot stands at £703 (after deduction of Paypal transaction fees).

 

Good luck to all still playing,

 

Mega

Never posted an update because I didn't think the jeans were faded enough, but here goes!

Took my jeans back to where they were made and the man that made them :)

Love that you’re back for an update! 

Regarding the above, isn’t there a risk of people voting for a least likely winner as to better their own chances of winning? I don’t know if there’s a better solution to this though.

We also have the complication of the comp going on two forums at once. Some are members of both and thus potentially could have more votes than the ones on just one of the two. Again, I don’t know how to solve this, I just saw a potential problem.

Thanks for the welcome back :)

Regarding the voting, I doubt either will prove an issue because.....

 

- Not everyone will submit a final update, and if there is a suspicious voting pattern from anyone I will open it up to a public vote (I doubt very much that this will be necessary).

- Regardless of being a member of both forums they can still only vote with the email address I have for them when they sent in their prize contribution.

Cheers @501XX4EVER! I think l’ll use them a few more months but then I’ll consider them retired. Kinda wished the comp was just for one year.

Understandable sentiment -- those TCBs are lookin' damn fine right now.

I'm personally quite grateful for another summer and autumn before this thing wraps up! Still got plenty of fading to do...

Quick update on my 19oz Sage Chieftains, 4 or 5 washes at this point (ready for another):

Plenty of repairs in my near future, especially around the crotch.

I'm still in this w/ my IH-888-NT's. 12+ months of wear and as many washes. These things loose dye faster than any other pair I've had experience with. These pics are from a  few weeks ago, and they continue to get lighter in the thighs, I don't sit much, so I'm not getting distinct whiskers and combs on this pair.

I'm gonna need a crotch repair at some point. I always get a stress tear on the inside of my left butt cheek from getting in-and-out of my car.
