Jeans: Stevenson 727 Worn for: 3.5 Years Washes: 27 Repairs: 6 I’m finally retiring my Stevenson 727 jeans. They have 3.5 years of constant wear, 27 machine washes, 6 repairs (at SESF, SEPDX, SELA, and I hand-repaired them twice while in Mexico). I love these jeans, everything from the super functional curved rear pockets to the way every stitch and fold ages is pure perfection. Retiring a pair of jeans that you’ve worn for almost 4 years is a rewarding experience. Going into that new jean feels both jarring and exciting; for the first time I’m going from one jean to another and they’re both made of the same denim but with slightly different details and a different fit. My next jean is Stevenson’s 714 Valencia model.
