Hey guys...x-post. Grifter Streaky going into retirement. Approx 9 months daily, 5 hot washes and maybe 2-3 tumble drys (a sin I know....was in a hurry). I need to learn to be more dirty and wash less. Photos outside with flash, a set on the fence and a set on the ground + auto adjust.

^ Ande, when are you going to make a cougarish cut with a tapered leg. Rakers are too slim for me !
post #2824 of 6451
^^
Size up on some Griftaz (or have some Cougars tapered?).

PSA: I got a pair of Streakys and maybe a pair of V3s about to go up in B&S (both 34).


Ande, those are dooooooooope. After about 6 months on and off, mine look fuckin' great too (I was in a stockpilin frame of mind and bought 2 pairs of Streakys), but I don't think they're any better than those, or diamond's old pics from sufu (one of the best fades EVAR). Plus I don't own a legit camera, so no pics for now...

I know its not pics... but damn, I never realized how slim the FH3001 was. These 32 inch are slimmer than my 31 Dior 19cm, haha.

Cross posted from a few other places... Canes 47 Something like 11 months, maybe 6 washes. I'll give them another month of wear before moving on to another pair.

Sling&Stones David in dry:











The fading isn't a lot when you consider the fact that I've owned them for almost a year. This was my first real pair of raw denim so I don't know if it's just me or if S&S jeans are really tough to fade. They've never been washed (the smell isn't too toxic), and interestingly enough, the inside of the jeans says "dry clean only," but I was under the assumption that dry cleaning is bad for most denim?

^^^ Yeah, those jeans are tough as hell to break. Really pretty blues, though. Most of these high-end jeans are intended to be worn dark some manufacturers recommend that the "uninformed" customer dry cleans their pair so as to preserve the dark color and minimizes unintended shrinkage. Dry cleaning your jeans isn't going to make them fall apart like tissue paper but as with any fabric it can take its toll after repeated cleanings. In the end, you have a pair of jeans. Throw them in the wash and treat them as such.

Nice to see some faded Slings and Stones posted. I've been interested to see how they fade, but it seems almost no one around here wears them. I also like the details on these jeans like the gold hardware, square buttons, the V shaped stitching, the & logo on the pocket... All pretty cool and unique, and I had never noticed any of it before these photos. If you decide to wash them in the future be sure to post pictures!

I'm still deciding on what to do with them. They're getting to a point where they need to be cleaned, and like who said, dry cleaning may help keep them dark. I love the color they are now, and I'm really paranoid about washing them because I washed my New Standards and hated how they came out.

If, for whatever reason, I do end up washing them, I'll be sure to post pics!

Love those Sling&Stones fosho. Hadn't paid much attention to that brand, but I'm loving the detailing like that ampersand type stitching on the back pocket, and especially those square gold buttons. I think that's what a lot of Japanese repro brands are missing - original, subtle embroidery and hardware.

About what? The denim, hardware, stitching, etc?

Like general inconsistencies, or they just fall apart? I knew there had to be some reason why they were so far off my radar.
