Happy you got a pair @heyson And what a lovely fit. Although I still have a heavy cuff myself, imo these looks the best with a tiny single cuff.

Gotta say these keeps the indigo a lot more than what it looked like when I checked washed fabric samples in Shingo's workshop. Looking forward to see how much you guys will beat these up these coming months! Reckon we will see greatness like the TCB contests that went bonkers after 9-12 months.

@heyson welcome on board!

 

Washed my pair again, still need to repair the crotch seam. 

I have a theory that the strongly twisted yarns of the denim lead to faster wear. I have some broken yarns in areas with barely any stress.

Does Goteborg Manufaktur offer repairs? My pair is forming holes in the crotch already, and I'm not sure, if I want to patch it up, or have it darned.
Maybe I should start cycling a little less, doe :D

They sure do @Thanks_M8 Especially Jonas is a complete machine head. Maybe not at Roy's level, but he keeps getting new vintage machines, haha.

Shoot them a message and I'm sure they will help you out.

Double posting! 

Not in this contest but I guess the host can share some love?

Yesterday I went to see the Finnish band Teksti-tv 666. Damn good stuff! 1 base player, 2 drummers and 4 guitarists. Loud noises!

In this basement you find Bov, the best pizza Gothenburg has to offer. Proper Napolitan pizzas. And 5 minutes walk from home. So damn dangerous.

Haven’t posted here in a while but after washing the jeans for the fourth time I thought it was time to show how they have evolved for me. I would say that I wear them at least 4 times a week but I’m quite a skinny guy so in comparison they haven’t quite come as far as some of the other pairs here but I really think that they are a great pair and the denim is something else.
Sorry for the stripes on some of the pics. I think my iphone might have been a bit shocked by the light.

Shit ton of pics, sorry!

Went on a kind of last minute trip to Austin to visit some friends after their engagement. Was only there for 4-5 days but had fun! Shit ton of pics of random stuff, food and some jeans. Most photos are on film as well.

I know, I remembered like half way through and was like damn I forgot to hit up Broark. But don't worry my friends keep telling me to visit in spring so I am trying to plan another trip haha.

Thank you! Yeah, I've been a couple times and I probably would have never gone if it wasn't for my friends moving out there. But I'm glad they did because Austin is awesome!

so, 5 months in. worn almost daily (I would say ~130-140 wears) - still not much signs of fade and wear (like some of you have here), maybe I should start jogging in them or doing some labour job.

So many pants to wear, but my competitive nature is not allowing me to take these off.

Another wash down the line :)

I'll try to spice up my posts with other stuff in the future, as some of you have.

Really enjoying both my pair and watching the journey of everyone else!

I'm a bit undecided with these jeans. When I repaired them on Saturday, I had no anticipation to wear them again. But after putting them on the next day, I didn't want to take them off :D
The denim is a bit strange, the crinkled look does not feel natural and I still have the feeling that this denim wears down (e.g. broken warp yarns) quicker than other denims. Might be the yarns are twisted stronger or is it because of the high starch content?

@beautiful_FrEaK the denim actually wears down faster, I experienced, in comparison to SDA or sugarcane denims, even pherrows, but it stays quite dark in areas with low abrasion, even with much washing.

Also, impressions of london, as I wait for my coach to leeds.

Went to the natural history museum, the tate modern, usual tourist stuff, as well. Really recommended by us would be bao right around clutch cafe, if u like baos. Also chinatown and soho. Checked out nottinghill market, bricklane and so on.

Seen are random impressions of hyde park or regents park, streetart here and there,  the london jazz cafe where we went to see extra soul perception and so on.

The people in the north aren’t very friendly and won’t understand you unless you say “eee”, “thou” and “duck” in every other sentence :happy:
