I wore them 6 days a week for the 11 months - every now and then I rotated in an older pair of jeans but altogether that might have added up to 3 weeks. I machine washed them 4 times, so once every 2-3 months.
As the warp yarn fades from indigo to dark blue to light blue to eventually grey/white, there's more contrast if the fill yarn is darker vs lighter, as opposed to light blue against traditional white fill yarns. That's why shadow jeans appear to fade more quickly than traditional blue jeans, because the black weft makes the fading warp yarns pop more.In fact if you want a more traditional fade, I would suggest the 130x (indigo x white) heavyweight...
The 17oz denim is a completely different animal. The fabric itself is stiffer, crunchier and has a more abrasive hand to it than the 14.5oz denim which has a tighter weave and is extremely soft on the inside. The 17oz denim will soften up a bit over time with wear but you'll never mistake one for the other. Since you have the shadow denim right now, I'd look into the 140x denim which has the brown fill yarn - this will yield faster fades since there will be more contrast...
If you want to try our jeans on, please visit Lost & Found in Toronto. We do prefer that you buy directly from the retailer that you're trying jeans on with, it's only fair to them. They are probably due for some restocks so mention to them that you spoke to me (Andrew) and that you'd like to special order a pair directly through them. That way you get your jeans and they get the sale.
Where in Canada do you live? There are a few stockists in Canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary). We are also releasing a lightweight jean next week, it's a 12oz raw indigo selvedge with a light rinse to give the jeans an even softer hand. It's going to be called the SL-101x (Straight Leg) and ST-101x (Slim Tapered).
Same as usual, around 3 days' turnaround time.
Looks like the thread on the bottom of the patch has busted, it happens rarely but it does happen. Shoot us an email at info@3sixteen.com with that photo and we'll figure out a solution.
The chinos are a slim fit with a good amount of taper to them. I'd say they are closest to 3sixteen's ST fit, although the leg opening might be a hair smaller than what's on the ST.
Thanks. I try and look presentable as often as I can, but having two young kids makes this pretty hard sometimes.
Although Pairate elected to post our email conversation here before replying to us, I've already reached out to him directly via email and have offered him a full refund including shipping charges. Since it's been discussed publicly here I thought I should let everyone know the conclusion of the situation. I should state that in our time in working with Brett, we have found him to be extremely detail oriented - this is the main reason we all love Viberg's work. There is...
