Update as of February 25, 2009

Here are the updates of my pair after several soaks and 1 machine wash.

Unfortunately these are the best shots I could get during the week. I will try for some better ones early afternoon on Saturday.

All are up to date as of now...except the belt. No interesting progress on that one yet. I need to oil it up and give it a little tan!

I have to say that the RRDS cut is the best out of all.

Ooo, a Corter belt. I was thinking about getting one, but I think I might use that money towards one of his midlength wallets+chain instead. Keep us updated on the leather aging :-D

I have to agree with you on the statement.

who8mahrice, I would have went with a wallet too but I just got one as a gift so I couldn't do it. I'm a little disappointed that I missed the super thick belts, but oh well. If you do decide to order a belt, tell him you wear a bigger belt than you really do. I use the middle or 2nd to last hole and the excess belt is too short so it doesn't stay under that piece that holds it down very well.

Edit: Oh, if anyone is wondering what kind of results you get from starching your jeans, check the Gap selvage. Lots of ridiculous creasing and whiskering...I personally think it looks terrible! A little to extreme for my liking...I was hoping it would relax over time, but apparently not!

OT:

But I'm guessing Dry Japan takes the longest to fade?

Thanks!

Belt pics updated. Not much change at this point. I have oiled it a few times with neatsfoot oil, which is a non darkening leather dressing.

A quick update with my current project. Not too far in yet, so it isn't really all that interesting.
