Very nice pick ups. I am thinking about getting a TFH heavy cut for the winter, but that price is so steep....

I bought a couple pairs of jeans when I was like 20 pounds lighter—just didn't anticipate putting on so much weight. Since neither of those two jeans fit me anymore, I got a pair of N&F with some elastane in a bigger size. So now I have denim for Skinny Who13 and one pair for Beefy Who13. Oh well.

Trying to deal with a 5x5 wardrobe makes it even harder. As the hemps were suppose to be my warm weather jean I am hesitant to dump them and be left with only heavy weight denim, but it would free up cash for other articles.

When I said end my denim cop run it is because I also bought the IH blanket lined rider, and want a loomstate lighter weight denim jacket as well (though that will probably wait). Plus ontop of all of that I want a denim wabash before winter.

Basically I have a max of 2 pairs of denim (in any given category) in a rotation at a time. I have simply been copping only denim pieces recently.

I would store the 32oz N and Fs if I were you..

I've also been kopping lots of denim recently,,but you know you'll have to replace a pair sometime in the future - so why sell the hemps when you obviously love them?

Congrats on the IH jacket....once you've got your lighter weight denim jacket you'll be set!smile.gif

Zissou's Surefire Denim Schedule
Prior to September: Buy one pair of jeans
September: Start wearing new pair of jeans
September-July: Wear the jeans every day. Wash once or twice when they get disgusting.

There you have it. By the time the heat of summer rolls around, you have a nicely faded pair of jeans. After a few years, you have a few pairs of soft, well-faded jeans to wear in summer along with shorts if you wish.

Sounds pretty close to my schedual. I can wear havy jeans from mid October through most of April. I am hoping to get a solid 3 months of wear on my BOMs and 32ozs by the end of this winter. After that I may just say screw it and wear them during the summer as well, but idk just how dedicated I am. My 511s are around a year if effective wear (but don't really show it) and are my amazingly soft go to summer jeans ATM. Realistically I wear denim all but probably 30 days a year.

EDIT: that post was a bit nonsensical, but I don't feel like fixing it ATM.

This is my first non-basic piece, unless you count a pair of gustins that I bought a year ago. I'm very happy with how they look in person. probably more excited than I should be, hence the overwhelming amount of pics

None. Pick a place at retail.
