The Evolution of Jeans: Pictures, Scones and Tea

Recommended Posts

Another pair of Made in U.S.A. 501s.

Dated 1987-1990, tag says W35 L34 but these measure 32 x 29. Color loss and marbling suggest lots of laundering and no holes, only a few frays, and the 100% intact crotch seem to back that up. Very clean pair.

Amazing traintracks.

You can just make out the tiny red xx after 501 that dates these to after 1987.

Awesome jeans, zoom! The pics of the Samurai s5000bk's looks it's shot in b/w.

Took some new pictures of my Denimbridge 2nd. Havn’t worn them for quite a while now.

Think these were from his first run of the 2nd model. Can definitely see myself getting another pair in the same cut.

Somehow the lens and grass length combo makes these look as if they are a toy :smile:

A couple of Evo pics of my Edwin ED-80s. Occasionally worn since April around the house and for a few hikes. Bearing some paint marks from a couple of renovation projects. 

1 soak and 1 cold wash so far. I'm a slow fader so nice to see some blue peeking through. IMG_20210809_071830.thumb.jpg.d7d2d8b783f72fb9236cbf54f2fcf670.jpgIMG_20210809_071759.thumb.jpg.8bdece5799c52f0ef324d278ee205f45.jpg

Long time no post. I've pretty much only been on the IH forum for the past few years because I honestly just can't bring myself to find much interest in other denim brands anymore after gradually replacing my wardrobe with IH over the past 5 years or so. Here's a pic dump of my IH-555 18 oz. First 2 are recent (3 years worth of wear), other 4 are about 7 months ago (2.75 years worth of wear). I've transitioned to mostly wearing IH-555-XHS-IB since earlier this year, so these 18 oz haven't gotten a ton of wear in those recent months. I can't believe how much life these have given me. I wear my jeans pretty hard, and I've never had another pair of non-IH jeans go beyond 25 months of wear. All but one of my non-IH have been wrecked in 17 months or less, and I'd need another ~6 months on these 18 oz 555 to get them to the point of where that 25 month pair was at (the Samurai 710 19 oz that I won the sub-21 oz HWDC2 with years back). Really can't say enough good things about IH. The durability is vastly superior to other jeans I've had.

Free repairs by iron heart :ph34r2:

My wife is quite skilled with a sewing machine and she takes care of the stuff I care about (crotch, anything above the thighs). I don't really mind cuffs or knees tearing and particularly don't like knee patches, so I just leave those!

I haven’t posted in superdenim in forever, but I realized my first pair of raw denim (501 STF) are 15 years old. I slowly sold off all my other denim as I got bigger and my jeans did not. As these were the biggest pair, I have held onto them but sadly they do not fit anymore either.
