post #271 of 405

notwithit - thanks for the feedback and i'm loving your progress! since you have an athletic build (no homo), i was wondering how the crouch area on your jeans is wearing? i have about 30 wears on mine and the crouch area is fading a lot faster with respect to everywhere else. i'm worried about a crouch blow :(. also, i read in your earlier post that you soaked your jeans twice?  did you not get enough shrinkage with the first soak? i got my jeans hemmed by SE to a 34 because i was told that it would shrink 2 inches in the inseam but they seem to have no shrunk at all after the first soak.

 

randomkoreandude - i love the fit of your jeans.

Thanks! satisfied.gif

Crotch seems to be doing ok. I wear my jeans pretty low on my hips (I definitely could've sized down to a 29), and my main concern is stress when I take steps two at a time more so than actual friction wearing away at the fabric. The denim is heavy enough that I'm not overly concerned, though.

I prefer to do a double hot soak right off the bat with unsanforized jeans to get out as much shrinkage as possible; no nasty surprises that way the first time you wash them..

Dudes, doubt I'm in on this still, but I was in in the beginning and then fell off the map. I've been in Los Angeles and just felt no need to wear them with all my other jeans. However, they are about to make a major Chicago winter comeback. I'll start posting regardless if I'm in the contest or not. I'd say they have a month wear in them, 30 days or so, a bit of fading here and there, but not much. Most likely moving here in January, dead of winter. Will probably get some interesting winter wear.

Well, I wanted to post pictures today, since it's my first wear after the third wash and all, but it's sleeting outside and not exactly WAYWT-friendly weather. plain.gif
