@volvo240thebest -sorry to hear things have been bad but nice to see you here again. Here's to a much better 2022 - and best of luck with any late on s40's dremeling.

If only a pic of an old (very )yello Volvo could brighten the day.....

For me the reason why I only upload fade pics is because these jeans have turned into my 9-5, Monday to Friday work jeans. Partly because of the competition but partly because I have other brands I love such as Roy, Ooe, Mister Freedom, Warehouse to name just a few. If I go anywhere or do anything that is not work related it will be in those jeans. Despite being a slow fader compare to other awesome examples I just can’t commit to one pair. That and I kind of forget about this forum when I’m out and about. Doh!

@Chris TT

Amazing jeans! Really like how yours have faded. How often have you washed these?

^ Ha - you're too kind @Newman :smile: - they are among the darker of the ones on here probably - but they do look different (and show the lighter parts better) outside - sun also making quite a difference to both pics and to my eye..

The top picture makes them look a bit lighter than they are - but also does capture the faded parts of the leg... I think washed 4 times now....

This is as close as I have to a fit pic lately. 
really it’s about the new yellow trail running shoes (I’m sorry)

I thought it was 18 months, which would mean the end of February, since it started September 1st.

Hi everyone!  Epidemics, submarine volcanic eruptions, earthquakes ... There are many things that can happen, but let's all overcome them.  Well, my recent pair.

The area around the side stitch has also been torn.

A characteristic part of my pair.  Weaving scratches.

One of the cats went through quite an impressive fading.
