1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Flat Head 1001 - Got this from 3rd Icon last August. After about 8 months of almost everyday wear & one hot soak, fading is still nothing as epic as others on this thread.[​IMG]

    I am not trying to hate, but those look hardly worn.

    I suppose if those are your everyday, really its more a testament to how well the denim is dyed than any thing bad.

    As I said, I am not trying to hate... thats pretty cool the jeans are still that dark after 8 months of semi-regular wear.

    Yea.... SF loves fading, but there is value in jeans that don't fade/get destroyed in a year as well I don't know what that value is but I know it's there.

    I thought FlatHead was supposed to get "epic" contrasting fades.

    ^That's what I thought as well. I guess that just further proves my lack of ability of breaking in a pair of jeans that's supposedly easy to break in.

    I think there's an ideal fit for jeans to fade nicely... not too big not too small

    Those look way too baggy to fade nicely

    hey, great effort there, Adubz! the fadez won't be apparent until you wash [​IMG]__ you'd be surprised how much wear you got on them once you do.

    here's somethin' to keep you motivated: Xpost [forgot whose pair these belong to]
