    @IIIrd Icon - I just need to say that your denim is consistently some of the best stuff on this forum. I've even taken to your advice of a light starch over the combs after soaking - hoping that I get some similar results. Anyways - carry on dude. My admittedly noob 501's. I've been doing a brief "denim experiment" this summer upon discovering the forum and wanted to give some cheap raws a shot in order to understand the process more before splurging for something expensive. Fading isn't super impressive yet, but they've only been worn for about 1.5 months. If anything, the photos wash out the denim. Still darker in real life. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] When does one typically start noticing those sorts of "high contrast" differences in the indigo? What is the usual timeframe? Edit: _______________ Fit pics actually coming soon. Spaced it and just used images already up on my blog.

    Yeah, for sure. I've read a fair share on the forums since starting this pair, but didn't want to throw away 35 bucks. I'm lining up my denim queue.

    You're not really gonna get high contrast fades out of those.

    Yea the 501 STFs don't really get high contrast fades. I had a pair that I wore everyday for 5 months before washing and they barely got any fades. The wallet was the most noticable.

    here's a fit pix of 701s with the newly painted acrylic " Inversed" GTB stripe [low-profile]. i find the white stripe too much of an attention grabber, so i made them sorta low-profile & stealthy [ei.,while denim is still raw+dark]. hence, the "Special Ops" concept/version.

    the denim is still stiff & starchy even after the double hot soak__ will take a few days for it to adopt to my contours.

    tnx. water is your friend__ don't be afraid to warm soak 'em when needed. it helps cure/temper/reset the denim & threads without losing too much indigo [if that is what you want].

    i know "starching" is blasphemous in certain circles cuz some say it's "cheating". i say it's "props" [of the trade]__ like Preparation H to a hang-overed model, lulz!

    anyways, i never claim to be a denim purist. a spritz of [heavy] starch on the laps/whiskers & combs areas while damp [not dripping wet] will keep the creases perked up & edges prone to ataris. as the saying goes__ "the proof of the pudding is in the eating".
