First Dry Pair of 501's

I figured that STF 501's would be a good starting point considering that i didnt want to waste a $200 pair of jeans.

This is after day 1

haha no i meant I didnt want to ruin a 200 dollar pair on my first attempt. a 30 dollar loss to me is better than a 200 dollar one haha

Looks good, keep it up. When you do your next update though, take pictures of your jeans when there outside and in sunlight. It will really bring out the fading and indigo loss.

Tsk Tsk Tsk

Went to a local denim shop called Heritage... Tried on a pair of Broken Twill Slim Jims... And considered divorcing my levis... I promised my levis i wouldnt think about it again... for now at least...

Im forcing myself to finish my first 5-7 months uninterrupted with these levis... then nudies can enter my life... haha. I cant lie though, i loved the fit of those nudies...



sorry for the quality it was taken on a camera phone... and i kinda was in a rush... but i might be getting these... in six months :l

Hello world :)

Wow i havent touched this thread in a month almost... Not only did i break down and buy the slim jims... Ive got a pair of RRDG's too...

that leaves me with a
2 month old pair of 501's
one 2 month old pair Nudie RRDG's
and brand spankin new 2 day old pair of nudie SJ Dry Broken Twills.

i hear the DBT's are very tough to break in so most of my efforts this year will be concentrated there... This year i hope to put 9 months of wear into those... my levis will become my working jeans i guess... and my greycasts will just wait... as much as i love the fit of those... ill post pics soon... im gettin a new camera... hopefully in early January...
