your fc's fucking blew me away. just great. i prefer my fades to be a tad duller then yours but jesus dude those are just amazing. you and poly i swear do great work ...
edit: did you sew the red tab on yourself?
s fit perfectly, dude... congrats! yea, every1 in the contest had to sew on their red tabs. 'twas part of the "kit" [w/c included arc templates + extra topstitch yellow thread].
had 1.5" stretch on the waist. the sizing down to a 32 was accidental. i, actually, thought i screwed up sizing cuz i gained 8 lbs [3mos from the time i ordered to the start of the contest]. they were already a bit tight pre-soak. i tried to swap, but no one gave up their 33s, so it was "stay or fold" for me. @the time no one knew about the properties/behavior of denim cuz 'twas a new prodn. just got lucky, i guess.
btw, the regular prodn FC 1108s do not have the same denim. they're 13.5oz redline selvedge. however, there was a single deadstock roll left of the contest denim [15.5oz w/greenline selvedge]. Gordon had the entire roll on special limited prodn run. model is 1653LTD

the cut is straight like the 1108s, but a bit slim-mish + approx 1/2" lower rised. i tried Gordon's pair [W32, w/c were also the sample pair] & the top block felt/fit similar to the SD 105/D1002 [w/o the bootcut, of course]. def need to size down
on these, tho.
almost got tempted to kop, but don't have time for a do-over. besides, my sight is locked on the FC x Bear's WWII
