The Olas look great. I just picked up a pair of Dry Slim Jims. This is the same denim as the Olas? Would one be able to expect similar results? I was very suprised at how soft the denim on the SJ was.

I am on month 3.5 on a pair ofDry Greycasts. These are pics pre cold soak:

And a couple after (Very similar though they seem to be wearing faster now):

*I had the pictures embedded, however they were huge and I do not know what to do about that.

My APCs are one year old! These saw some pretty brutal treatment and have graduated to the coveted "weekend jean" status! Those won't get much wear while I am breaking in my Imperials.

i don't know how they compare to apc. they're straight leg. nice and slouchy. the ass is not baggy, which is excellent. i feel like the ones they have now are much more tapered and a lot less dark. these were almost black when i first got them. i heard they were 14 oz, but i don't really know anything about them.

Those HL selvage jeans are really hard to find!

My APCs were washed in a machine once, and wash in a sink with hot water and no agitation 4 times. They are really dirty looking, but in a very uniform way, I think they look great that way.
