@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.....

Hello everybody!  here is a little update after a wash and a few repairs. They have retired from being work jeans and are now my lounging about at home jeans.

I'm working on the rest of the photos I took today (with an old iPhone, sorry 'bout dat), but here's where I'm at... and, as promised @volvo240thebest, you can't have WWII jeans without the period correct telo mimetico A3 made from an old shelter half...

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....

When I got back from taking the photos, my wife said "Where were you? Did you know there's a tsunami warning?"... explained a few things. Typical that I'd be the only bonehead on a rock platform under those conditions. And that I'd be trying to find forms in nature that complemented my sick fades...

...and just a couple more, even though I'm straying into flat-lay lumbersexual seance territory...

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)
