The Evolution of Jeans: Pictures, Scones and Tea

Recommended Posts

Last oktober I started on a pair of Diesel Tepphar Turbo Denim.

They still make these?  I had a pair like 4 years ago as my intro to raw denim.  Probably a bad idea on Diesel's part to make them, as I - and probably a lot of others - transitioned into higher end raw denim as a result of buying these and never bought another pair of Diesels again.  Hah.  In any case, I think they fade a little faster, but it seems like it's probably just a result of a weak dying process rather than some special treatment, as they claim.  Too bad the denim is pretty poor and rips way too quickly.  I haven't seen anyone go past maybe 7 or 8 months in a pair of these, so, for nostalgia's sake, I'd be curious to see what they look like a long time down the road.  Wear them hard!

Wow probably the most beautiful pairs I have ever seen. How the F do you get such good fades on your upper legs. What do you do in them. You should teach me to use em like that ;-) *jealous*

Yeah I heard that they were pretty bad quality. Yet I have to say that the denim after the first wash seems really sturdy still. As this is just an experiment I am curious too. And I have to say that I am patient and seem to keep all my dry pair fairly log without rips or tears (never goat crotch rip (knock on wood). I like this pair thought. Will surely keep you posted. 

 

Got some pics of your pair on how they evolved and how they ended up?

My Diesel Tepphar turbo denim at day 74, 7 days after the first wash. They seem to fade faster after the wash. They don't get much wear these days because of the hot weather and the fact that I am trying to break in my new A.P.C. Petite Standards
