marka's DBs [13months-Dec 7, 2009]

My first pair of raw denim ever.

Denimbirds Sam in Dry Navy Embo size 25
(sized up by 1.5)

Got them hemmed for now. Will take in the thigh a bit after about a month.

January 15, 2008 - Day 1

February 17, 2008 - Day 31
Wore them every day (didn't sleep in them) except for 3 days, when it was raining (hence day 31, not 34). They stretched out by a whole size. I'm itching to get them altered, but waiting to do that after the first wash. They did not fade by much, which is quite disappointing=( See pix below

March 1, 2008 - Day 40

May 7, 2008 - Day 93
I'm really getting tired of these. Three months with not much change=(

August 21, 2008 - roughly day 150
Finally see some progress. Wore them to gym a couple of times to do cardio. Will do more of that.

October 26, 2008 - roughly day 175 FIRST WASH!

Washed them inside out in warm water. They shrunk nearly 2 sizes (and about an inch of inseam), but they fit so perfect on me now! I actually enjoy wearing them. That is until they stretch out again

The spots are from my camera (except for hem wear)

Wearing them

March 4, 2009 -- Roughly 9 months.
This is a slow and painful process. Not much change after all this time. And my hips aren't as wide and these jeans make them look

Front and back

Fit pics

December 7, 2009 - Roughly 13 months of wear.
I've gotten fat lately and the jeans have become tight. Good for the process, not good for me=( I believe I soaked them once since last update. They've come a long way since the beginning. They might not look as faded, but they've molded to my body and are so comfy.

First Pic taken w/o a flash in whatever natural light I could get.

I didn't even notice that. Very nice, we should definitely compare progress as we go.

Why are you feeling down?

Looking good so far. How often are you wearing them?

I wore them every day for the first month. Now, 5 days a week.

I'm feeling down because I looked at my half-naked-self in the mirror

Nice, we definitely need some more pics like the rest though so we can do a real comparison.

Why would looking in the mirror make you feel down? You look hot in those denimbirds!

biking is ideal because it works the honeycombs and whiskers really well. cardio would be best bet for wearing out your jeans when working out. i see the fades there coming along... you'll get there

I was thinking the same thing! Do people look at you funny wondering why you're wearing jeans at the gym?
