@srudy Nice pics! I wish there was something like that within a day of me, but there isn't. Also I am intrigued as to how that vehicle got down by the water in that first pic.

On that bend in the road there is a drive, large enough for a car-where folks process fish after being out all day.

(OW 32) before their first  wash this week, not much fading so far but that's the trouble with a desk job.

They had stretched out to almost 86cm (bottom) and shrunk back to 78-79cm after a 60 degree wash (top).

Had them back on a day and they are stretching back out nicely, super comfortable. My favourite jeans at the moment

Getting some roping back too (post wash top TCB hemming off cut at the bottom)

After sending back my 32OW, my 36OW will be arriving on tuesday. I can't believe how much I mis-sized myself :rolleyes:. The world shutting down definitely played a role in that.

s an Australian, I can't generally wear denim at the beach without passersby saying (or evidently thinking) "Yer right, mate..?!"

As an Israeli I can relate to that!

Beautiful beach, very nice progress.

For jeans on the wider leg side they take very nice creases behind the knees. Noticed that on my pair and it's also obvious on @Frost's pair here.

Did some repairs on the left pocketbag. Doesn't look good but I hope it will hold for a while. There is several places on this pocketbag that starts to tear so if I'm unlucky I have to replace all the fabric.

Nothing is as good as a deep fried Mars Bar ... so I’m led to believe :tongue:

Cat and my 40th day buddy.

Super adorable! My cat is too fat to use the leg as a tunnel, I'm afraid.

Me too... same size, same fading story, also washed this week, same stretch-shrink-stretch measurements... This thread would be a few pages shorter if we'd known about that stretch back in August, I think.

Also my left leg twist is now about 80º, selvedge almost pointing forwards

Indigo dipped cotton, fades faster than the jeans haha!

超愛らしい!私の猫は太りすぎて足をトンネルとして使うことができません。恐れています。 

@mandel9000

Thank you!  I'm happy.  My cat is also fat, but my legs are also thick so I can barely play in the tunnel!:tongue:ありがとう!!

The cat was thin when he picked it up, but he got fat after the contraceptive surgery.  worry.

How many washes are you at and at what temps? Do love me some leg twist but mine has barely started to migrate forward. I’ve just done a 40c and a 30c on my OW pair mind.

Soaked my TCB in the washing machine, 15 minutes of dryer and a little bit of that sweet PVA glue (Japanese starch) that BerBerJin usually apply on vintage denim. The roping is insane and the jeans can walk on their own. They are alive !
