Here are my Edwin ed-47, japanese denim and rainbow selvedge, my first pair of jeans in japanese denim.

I've wore them for a year on the weekends since I've been in the army under the whole time. Im kind of happy of the outcome. I hate that I can't wear them anywore since they are too small :(.

(Pictures are pretty accurate in the color)

PBJ xx-005

The top photo is the most consistent with the actual patina. Last set for a little while. I really want to go for a full year on these but the desire for a new pair has been pretty strong as of late (Imperial, Atelier LaDurance, who knows). We'll see...

Coniferous, did you adjust the contrast at all? If not, wow, the backs of your hems are amazing/blinding.

I did a bit of adjustment to compensate for some poor lighting conditions and shoddy white balance adjustment, but yes, the hems are as....trashed as the look. Doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Fit and whatnot. Both taken indoors.

I have to agree with salaami here...please don't get Imp's or Alt's...it just feels like a step in the wrong direction.

Point taken. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.

they look great, but the original pictures on the road hardly resemble the fit pics. contrast was obviously jacked up a decent amount. that's probably more common than we like to think here. i guess i really don't care what you do with your pictures though, so happy editing...

i know that people seem to have lost a bit of faith in ALD but their jeans ( not including the recent stuff made in china ) are some of the nicest jeans i've seen, and I personally still rate them very highly.

I can understand the pressure on small companies in todays environment with regards to manufacturing costs etc, so I dont think that people should judge too harshly. That said, from personal experience with Chinese manufacturing, i've found the quality and more important the consistency to be quite poor in relation to garments made in japan / england / america / italy / germany / france. I just hope their stuff doesn't completly go down the pan...

If the quality declines, I'd say say ALD is more to blame than the place of finishing. The denim still comes from Japan, and I'm certain China (or wherever) has craftsman that are experienced enough to handle the finishing process.
