    I'd feel kinda funny walking around a pair of jeans that are now "premium" because an Italian cotton picker wore them around for 6 months. Something about that sounds of bad taste.

    If somebody needs me to start breaking in their denim, I'll do it. I ride bikes, skate, drink, get in fights, climb on things I shouldn't...shit maybe you shouldn't let me break in your jeans for you afterall...

    If idiots are willing to buy stuff like this, what's from stopping me to pay local hobos $50 to wear a couple of Dior's or Sugar Cane's around for 6 months then sell them to boutiques for that "natural street finish" premium price?

    I guess the real difference is that cottonickers don't have to develo a horrendous stench just to defend themselves from the other cottonickers. that's probably why all those bluebloods (bluecollars? WTF?) are lacking that authentic "pissed in" feel.

    I think I'd rather know that my jeans were authentically bruised and beaten in by someone who feared for his life instead of worn by some rich cotton worker living in the lap of luxury.

    I bet someone on this board buys a pair.

    That's equal parts stupid, weird, and unappealing.

    I think that if I had to buy a pair of broken in jeans it would be these, but you won't catch me buying a broken in pair in the foreseable future. The idea's pretty cool in my opinion. I'd like a closer look at the fading. It's like the Evolution of Jeans thread in the other SF.

    Seeing as how this denim project from Blue Blood is kinda gross... Lets say we start our own denim project. Similar to what the other SF is doing. "Denim Fade Competition" Get a bunch of people interested in buying the same dry denim, (I know some of us already own the same pairs) wear em for a certain period of time, then show and tell. I may get some flack for biting the other SF but I dont care I thought it was a fun idea and its only cause I missed the damn order deadline from being out of town! http://superfuture.com/city/supertal...ad.php?t=15192

    I think the fake Thai Levis makers beat these guys to the punch.

    lol @ rich cotton worker

    while i dont agree with it, just because its kind of gross in my opinion (and why im not big on thrifting) youre a moron if you think a cotton worker in any country is "rich" and blue blood is simply filling a gap that some people may be willing to pay for (the true worn look without 6 months of investment, rather 200 dollars investment.)
