Just making sure everyone saw these... you saw them right? here they are again... just so you can keep looking at them. again.. damn these are good.

 

Haven't really worn these legends for years at this point. I should repair the leg rip and give them one last ride.

For those of you that doesn't check the HWDC2-thread! :)

 

Thanks for the word Ruedi! But a disappointment for you is that I've made my first wash  :)

 

Yes, so first wash after 365 days of wear, did a quick cold machine wash and I'm really happy with the result. They shrank 2 inches in the waist, witch isn't really a surprise since they are two sizes too small in the waist. But they stretched out fast again though. 

 

Since I was about to wash them I could at least get them even dirtier so I wore them while I was sanding a lot of polyester.

 

Before wash:

Well... It's partially a climate thing I guess. High temperatures and humidity do a lot when wearing jeans.

They are impressive though, that's sure.

Flathead 3001 - 10 months - presoak + 1 or 2 washes. They've taken quite a beating, so I'm sending them off for repairs. Hopefully I'll be back wearing them soon.

If they only made a cut that I like, I would have gotten SDA's years ago. They are fantastic!

Ok people so here are some pics of the 527s post wash. I have a new dslr camera coming in the mail next week so there should be some higher quality shots/macros soon as well. Cheers

I've gotta say I'm pretty happy with the way they've turned out so far. My one concern is some chafing/fraying in the crotch area. It doesn't seem like a precursor to a blowout yet, but nevertheless may need some preemptive work done. I'll show what I'm talking about when I get the chance.

Hi guys,

 

These are my Nudie Grim Tim Orange Selvage. I wore them for two years almost straight. They had 3 washes, first one after 14 months. They also had around 8 different repairs, mosly around the crotch. A guy fixed them by darning the holes on a vintage sewingmachine. I really like these jeans, hope you do as well! smile.png

Hi guys!

Woke up bright and early today and the sun seems perfect for taking some progress pics! although not the best quality since i took these with a iphone

Anyways, these are mustangs in the standard denim roll.

They've seen about 4 months of wear time. 1 cold soak and 1 cold machine wash on handwash setting.
