 Nice evo, Smallrod! I’ve always liked those arcs.

Just a small reason as to why my pair won’t last till the end of the contest. This small tear will just get worse and it will be better to buy a different pair than to repair it. There’s fraying in a lot of places on these jeans without having hard wear. 

Worn since sept/oct 2017- August 2018. No wear from aug 2018- March 2019 and very infrequent wear from March till now.

will update with actual pics soon

Here are some pics of the jeans: I’d say they have 14-15 months of wear and plenty of washes. These were definitely fast faders but also fast to fray and wear thin as well

Might be the best looking Iron Heart jeans I've seen so far. Nicely done!

Really? Wow... Thanks for the compliment.

I have mixed feelings about them. I'm not in love with them, but I like them enough to keep wearing them. Not really that big a fan of UHR denim. I usually wash my jeans every 2-6 weeks depending on how dirty they get. This denim sheds dye rapidly, and they got a stone washed look early on. I've seen other UHR on the IH forum that I think look better than my pair. Maybe because this is a new run of the UHR and not the original lot of UHR. As I said, I'm just wearing them because I entered the contest and want to see it through 'till the end.

Reminder.....

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

Not a problem man, although this contest is my retirement from contests, organising or competing. I spend most of my life in “business” attire these days unfortunately.

The contest end is November 1st btw.....should have mentioned that in the other post.

@Megatron1505 Thx for the update & info. You're dearly missed around here. 

Any idea if there will  be another contest, sponsored by someone, i.e. IH? There are a couple other comps that have popped up recently, but I've committed myself to seeing this one through. Not sure what I'll do with myself if I don't have another contest to wear one pair of jeans for :huh::o:P;) 

I now regret not getting a DWC2 comp tee shirt, just for down-the-road-nostalgia.

I have a weekend with Giles coming up so never say never, but I have no immediate plans for another contest.

Which Tee was it you wanted in which size, I have a few different tees still kicking around so I can have a look what I have and send you one in the mail if I have it dude, just pay postage.

I spent a few days last week helping family and friends on Green Turtle Cay, Abaco in the Bahamas with the aftermath of hurricane Dorian.  It was a depressing and rewarding experience.  Wore my FH1001 every day and definitely needs to be washed.

Hey y'all - just read that we have to keep doing regular updates, I hope I've been posting enough. I have a lot of photos of these jeans, but I was waiting until the end of the contest to share 'em. Here's a few recent ones:

Makoshika

Malta

 

I will of course take detail pics of the jeans ah the end, but these should give you an idea for now! Sage 5th Chieftains 18oz.

Cheers, y'all's jeans are looking fantastic.
