Ok well it has been about a month ina half since I got them. Ive been very busy with work and school so ive only been able to wear for 8-10 hours a week.

I have been on 2 vigerous bike rides so far, which I think has kept them on track in aging.

love the VX denim! You really sized up 2 to get that fit?!! I had to size down on my 710's to get the fit I wanted and the 5000 is a much roomier cut! You should post some fit pics now that they have stretched out and softened up a bit, I'd be curious to see... either way, looking good, keep wearing them hard!

Hard to belive these things started looking like what they were in my first post.

This is 8 months, cant wait for the one year mark because the stains are starting to pile up. Hopefully can wait that long before I wash em.

Quick teaser as how these are beautifully fading.



Will post an entire set of pictures in a week or two at the 11 months mark.

Ok finally the 12 month update, sorry it took so long. These pictures are also POST-WASH. I washed them about a month a go.





The denim still has a dirty look to them that didnt come out in the wash. May have to wash my next pair more often than once a year I suppose.

Anways these turned out nicely, and im not retireing them, I just think my next pair will be much cheaper than 300$.

Those turned out great! I really like the honeycombing on the back of the knees.

Man, those things look awesome! Love the way the denim looks when it is broken in. Very sweet pair right there! Why not pay 300 for a pair again?? From what I can tell it is definitely worth it. My pairs that are >300 don't hold a candle to the <300 pairs.

Those turned out good. My 710 are at the 1 year mark but not as defined right now. I have been switching between those and my FH though ...

Keep wearing them. They will definitely keep evolving.
