i recently decided to jump on the raw denim bandwagon with my first pair of Naked n Famous Skinny guy.
I bought these last week and i've worn them for the past 72 hours (i go to sleep with these lol
Im really really looking forward to having these fade@!!
Normally i wear a size 30 and.. unfortunately size 30 was the smallest size they had at the store... so i got that. I think i was supposed to go down one size but oh well.. hopefully it wont affect the fade too much
Any tips for gettin these to fade faster?? D:
I had a shitty phone camera at first
BTW does anyone know how heavy this denim is?
Is it supposed to be 24oz??
================================================== ================================================== ================================================== DAY 72 (2.5 months)
Actually, im going to be honest, those first pics are crappy and i was FAT LOL. i think they were a horrible fit at first. anyways, heres the 2.5months update
Ive worn these nearly every day since day 1 (i think in total, theres been 5 days when i havent worn them)
2.5 months... no washes or soaks (except twice in heavy ass rain D
Ive been periodically starching my jeans too.. except i recently lost my can of spray on starch so ive only starched it like 3 times ever lol...
So i've been putting things in my pockets to create tacky wacky fades!!!
i started with a keychain in my left bk pocket i got during frosh/orientation week at the university of waterloo (im in engineering). works well as a beer opener
In my right back pocket, i put a thing of mints... its like a round case thing... i bought like 50 of these cus they were on sale.. keeps my mouth fresh too LOL.
creases are set in, im starting to see fades!! <(^_^)>
**** IM GOING CAMPING THIS WEEKEND!!!!
i get the feeling these jeans are gona be hella dirty when i get back lol..
================================================== ================================================== ===================== DAY 192 ( 6 months)
Hey i apologize for updating this so late but its now febuary and im updating my journal with pics i took in november.
Back in november was when i first washed these jeans.. next week i'll be updating them with the 10 month update (i did a sea water wash in between
So here goes:
at the 6 month mark i decided to wash my jeans: PREWASH
Keep in mind guys, i work a door-to-door job so i do TONS of walking in these jeans. I take around 15k-20k steps a day lol so these faded wonderfully. DURING WASHING
*notice in this pic im wearing my rock and republics
.. i havent worn them since 6 months ago lol
The water got so black after 2 hrs YUK D: DURING DRYING AFTER WASH AND DRIED
(thats my girlfriend holding my jeans hehe)
The jeans were frozen solid when i got back to them. i left them outside to dry and got back home at around 11pm. They were solid with ice lol but relatively dry.
I'll be posting fit pics and such next week. The week after these pics were taken, i went to the Dominican republic on vacation so i got to do a sea-water wash in these jeans. They look really great

Hey guys. heres another update. I took these jeans to the Dominican republic for a sea water wash. They looked really great!!!
did a dry sand rub too
Heres the pictures
These are the pictures post-wash from last time, right before i put them in the ocean
Fit pics pre-ocean wash
SAND RUB/OCEAN WASH!!!
And heres post-ocean wash
Not too big of a difference can be seen because the creases were re-set.. the jeans are barely lighter.
Once the creases re-set though they are more faded (now

Well. About a month ago my crotch blew out. Horrible rips everywhere T_T.. so i sent in my jeans to get repaired to a good friend named frank in toronto. I got my jeans back about 2 days later and they were all patched up. Im including patched pictures too.
I think he did a pretty good job.
ALSO, today is the 1 year anniversary of my jeans so i've decided it was finally time to wash them.
Ive included pictures of before and after wash both with and without flash and also fit pics.
