Thanks for the comments. I'm probably going to wash them really soon because they're really dirty from walking in mud and dirt. I'll post some new pics then.

Washing jeans is like a box of chocolates-you never know what you're gonna get.

For those of you not in the know, the quote is from the movie "Good Will Hunting."

So I hate to be the guy that jumps on the obvious sarcasm, but we all have to remember that in this medium there is no body language, tone, or smiles. If you are being funny, good one, but the movie would be Forrest Gump.

Also, Nice jeans all...

Hey guys - I wanna put up some pictures of RRDS, but I'm totally new to posting pictures on superfuture. Can someone tell me how the hell you do it? I looked for an FAQ section but couldn't find one...Thanks.

Looks a little sanded? Not accusing though, just observing.

^ Those look awesome.

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried to emulate the sea water wash? (ie soak in water and salt, rub some sad,soak,rub, rinse dry) Pics would be great

no way those edwins are all natural.....those are the sharpest honeycombs and higs i have seen for 2 months without contrast in the color of the denim. If that shit is real then that is amazing

Thanks man!

First wash was at about 8 months, and I have washed them twice since then at 3 month(ish) intervals.

i finally washed my nom de guerres. 9 months with one shower wash - i couldn't take it anymore. i was afraid to wash them because i thought they'd become "too blue." i'm pretty happy with them. cold wash with woolite black=

werdtoyourmoms -- absolutely beautiful. Congrats. Those are going to look fantastic as they fade in some more. I think you should start washing them regularly (every six weeks or so).

kixslf- yeah, they're 100% real... keep in mind that the jeans are super lit up because of the flash... also, those ed-47s were fairly grey cast, so there wasn't too much color to be lost. Compare with these raw ones:

As far as washing schedule goes, I was trying to follow the formula of the Japanese guy who posted up monthly updates of his SC 47s. He wore them in from a one wash state for about two months before his first wash and then washed them about once a month and ended up with fantastic jeans:

my two next projects are a slim fit RRL and a regular fit Edwin 505 SXR. The double RRL is a bit too tight (nearly nut hugging) and the Edwins are a bit too loose (the ass is humongous), so I'm curious to see how those two are gonna turn out.

Denimdestroyedmylife,

first of all, thanks! I wore them like, 4-5 days a week. They stank pretty badly towards the end, and they didn't look amazing until about 2 months after the first wash...

Regular STF's, after 1 lukewarm soak and 1 cold overnight soak. 4 months of wear and weekly starch. I kind of ruined them after a hot machine wash to shrink.

These are my RRDS after about eight weeks of total wear now. At about six weeks I had to wash them after an encounter with some breasts and my coffee, unfortunately. They're still fading, though, and I'm still a happy little camper.
