denim update....apc and nudie pics

Recommended Posts

okay, i decided it was time for an update...i havent done one of these in a while so here it goes.

first up is my apc standerds. I loved these jeans and i am pretty happy about the way they are ageing. I am especielly happy with the contrasting on the seat of the pants and the front on the thighs.....i cant wait to wash em to see how they end up lookin.

i have been wearing these for about 4 months. Unfortunetly i havent been wearing them recently for a few reasons.

1) the damn jeans stretched so much and now they just fit like crap everywhere....doesnt work very well with a pair of jeans that have a 8.5 leg opening.

2) they smell horrendous....all that skating and stuff this summer did a number on my jeans....it def quickened the ageing process but....ewww...i cant even stand it anymore......i wore the, last night and it was just terrible

3) for some reason that i cant even seem to understand...the damn honey combs refuse to define themselves properly....i understand that apc's dont get as defined as nudies but come on.......where the fuck are they.....what there is didnt show up in the pic very well....oh well

next up are my nudies......i love these jeans....they are fantastic....i have had them for about a month now and they are wearing very nice.....the wiskers and honeycombs are starting to really look nice. they have stretched a bit thus far but regardless they still fit great....the pockets are starting to look real nice too.....anways....they are jkust greycasted RR's...i couldnt afford the dry selvedge....oh well...someday.....

one more thing...does anyone else think that i should just go for it and wash my apc's...they seem to be pretrty worn down and i dont know how well the honey combs will come in...and boy...they smell...so ....guys should i wash em or wait it out? I dont see myslef wearing that often because of how much they have stretched and because im always wearing my nudies.

Hustla, I like the brass nuckle in your back pockets. Is the other one supposed to be a liquor flask?

And kixslf, you are using a bottle cap and a cigarette pack, right?

I would wash those APCs. Once you wash them the indigo will start fading in the creases, meaning your whiskers should show up about a month after washing them and wearing them.

How'd you manage to wear those Nudie's in so much in only 5 wears? I've had mine for nearly 3 months and they don't look that much different. The wear on the back pocket is pretty well defined too... if that's 5 wears, you better calm down before they turn into holes :P

Ugh, doofus? Anyway, I do. Besides, I don't think using excessive starch is going to help much when it comes to wearing out the rear.

hey guys, nice jeans! :)

Ive got a pair of nudie, slim jims here. Worn them every minute of the day for about 2 weeks now.

I think theyre coming along nicely, but what should i be doing with them? im fairly new to this game, so any help would be apprieciated.

Also, what is this honeycombing, ive finally decided to ask. Is it the wear that the jeans get from something being in your pocket? :S

honeycombing is pretty much just the wear you're seeing at the back of the knees.

As far as what to do, i apply some starch to the back of the knees and around the thighs while wearing them. That's about it for me I guess... I do a bit of rubbing too, starting to get impatient :)

Definitely wash your APCs.

I'm getting irritating "knee foldovers" on my Straight Svens. Kinda looks silly. Oh well!

That stitching can be taken off. I saw some pictures on mynudies.com. They looked pretty cool. I personally used to not like the pocket stitching (more a fan of the levis simple logo), but i have grown to like the stitching since i got the bootcut ola and rr dry.
