LVC 1947 501

I've been working on these for about a month now, so they don't have too much wear yet. These have had 1 hot soak to shrink them but I think it might have washed a lot of the starch away too cause they are getting quite soft, would starch spray be a bad idea? Anyway, here are some pics...

Those look good, just wear them loads and the progress will still happen I wouldnt do starching personally it might cause bacteria or something lol.

^I wear a 28-29 in R&R and like to have at least 32.5" on the inseam so I think these are gonna end up just right.
I actually took a serious fall in these jeans the other day, its actually a fairly embarassing story but it resulted in these two holes in the left knee (and my left knee).


Do you guys think I should get them mended?
Here they are after a couple soaks and 1 wash...about 4 months of wear total:



EDITL: just realized the color didnt come out quite right in these...I think I'm gonna have to take them outside to capture them better

HELL NO! They look awesome! Personalization is basically the foundation of the "dry denim philosophy" right? Definitely keep. It helps make them 'yours' and, had I just seen the pic and not read a thing, I would've thought for sure it was a generic factory rip so I think it's really cool that it's natural. Hope your knee is okay though.
