So I met this guy at a store in Winnipeg named Chris who works for Ducks Unlimited Canada who brought in 2 pairs of beat up N&F jeans. The first one is this crazy pair of 21oz selvedge in WeirdGuy fit. It was even more impressive in person... The store (Danali) had some of the same jeans in stock, so I took a comparison photo: Chris is about 6"1 and my guess is approx 180 lbs. He wears size 32. The shop manager told me that Chris is a "bushwacker" and works in Canada's wetlands doing serious tough work to preserve the environment. These jeans have never been washed and Chris tells me that he will continue to beat them up!
^ Yup, pictures I guess the pictures have circulated on varrious web sites.
Honestly never really thought the jeans were anything special. I was just enjoying wearing them seeing them develop. When they get to the point where they look good in my eyes I move onto the next pair to beat up.
Some people were wondering about the APC Faux Noir PS that I have so here's a couple pics of how it'll fade. They were pitch black when I got them, still pretty dark unless in sunlight. First is how it looks, second is in sunlight with contrast bumped up (so probably how they'll end up looking... fades greyish thanks to charcoal weft): And here's a quick update on my Skull 5507s. I need to sew another patch on the crotch.
