    Cool lets aim for November or December 1st. I'm still working on my NF deep indigos.

    We could use the thread I started to take a poll when we are done to determine who won.

    Argentino,

    I am down for prizes, what do you have in mind?

    I'd subscribe to a "natural fades only" rule. No sandpaper, waxing, whaterr. Maybe go 12 months, Dec.1 '12 to Dec.1 '13 or something of the sort. Maybe start on election day for some added spice? How you wear them is up to you (if you're a jeans-7daysaweek person, or whatever). I think timewise would generally equalize out. I enjoy jeans 5-6 days a week, but during summer in Nevada it's darn near impossible. That time would make up for more "casual" wearers over the course of the year, I think.

    Of course, I could sweat it out for a year of my life just for the pleasure of beating you all... :hide:

    Prizes, I don't know. I don't personally have a ton of cash to fork out for something legit. I think it could be fun if all participants chipped in to buying the winner a fresh pair, but even that's probably a bit much. I really don't know - just threw it out there.

    Would it be going for highest contrast? Sharpest combs? Most lifestyle-faded? It's hard to pin down what we're looking for so as to qualify a "prize" for doing X best.

    Or would it just be more of a group look-at-us-all-fade-our-702s sort of thing. A group project as opposed to "contest" per se.

    I think re:photos some groundwork might need to be laid down too. A photography standard. You can't be photoshopping your jeans into japanese-faded oblivion, but really Iphone pics, etc. won't do your pair justice. Maybe a minimal processing stipulation - just something like correctly representing color and contrast. Even for the best photographer, sometimes things just don't turn out the same color as IRL, and so I would think some honest allowance for cleaning up photos should fly.

    Just some thoughts. Pleased to hear others are grooving on this idea.

    Everyone pitches in to buy the winner a pair, that would definitely make things a little more interesting.

    Natural fades only was obvious brah :plain:

    well i am a few wears into a pair of 702s. will post into the thread - not so bothered about competitions and rules. i wear them 2 or 3 times a week and dont wear too hard. not competitive, but do think a SF 702 Fade Group would be a great collection.

    Any way we could include the 003 into this?... it's essentially the 702 just slightly heavier and unsaf. denim. Mostly because I don't think the 702 is what I'm looking in terms of silhouette, already have a s5000vx, will need another pair of slim denim after these 001's.

    I can feck off if this seems stupid TIA. [​IMG]

    maybe we should start on election day, we can call it "Denim Evolution, President Edition"

    Hell, I might even buy a KMW belt from BOW to replace my NF belt.

    It's a shame I can only wear my denim 2 days a week (suit and tie the other days ...). i'd love to get in on this, but it's not like i'd stand a chance vs. daily-wearers.
