    Ya I don't understand the whole honeycombs thing. Mine are distinct but they aren't fading at all. Actually, my APCs aren't really faded anywhere except on the butt. Kind of annoying considering I've had them for about a year (probably wear 2x a week).

    honeycombs are a very inconsistent thing for many people. They seem to take a very long time to come in for people who aren't running or biking, etc.

    Yeah, the honeycombing on my RRDS were barely coming along at all, compared to the hige, for basically all of winter. Once it warmed up and I started walking to and from work each day instead of taking the bus/subway (about a mile each way--no big deal, but it adds up), they started to catch up in a big way.

    First post here... a copy from a thread on superfuture.

    I've been wearing those everyday since September 21.
    I've washed them twice in the machine with water around 40° then I've hung them to dry.
    They've also been soaked once because I had spilled some nasty things on them while cooking.

    After the second wash two little "holes" have formed behind the knees. I think they might have suffered in the machine... I don't really care though.

    I don't starch them anymore but I did in the first few months. I don't think it's really necessary, the creases set nicely and it's more comfortable to wear. Also it makes the denim drape better.

    I think that because I play drums a lot (music student) I get really weird fading on the seat and the inside of the knees.

    I'm thinking of washing those in the next few weeks because I spilled more food on them and they get sweaty fast because of all the drumming.

    Sorry for the horrible pics, I suck at taking pics.

    Looking awesome, Geowu. Really beautiful denim--it's particularly evident in the third pic.

    I am worried that you seem to be living in an 8-bit universe, though. Beware any turtles you see, and eat all the mushrooms you can find.

    After lurking here unregistered for half a year I'm finally posting something.

    RRDS washed after 5 months.

    The waist obviously isn't that small, I just have it held open so air could get into them and dry them quicker.

    Nah, not into that. I keep mints in my pocket this time of year when my allergies really kick up (Hay Fever?). Nasal drainage gives me horrible breath.

    They look great! I love the RRDS blue after it's been washed. Such a great color.

    What is snuss? Do you mean snuff? or am I missing something? or are they the same?

    It's kind of like chewing tobacco. I don't think it's available in the USA.
