    flsxik,

    I don't think you took enough photos. Try taking a shot from Pic 1's angle but showing the full front of the jeans. The lap fade might just push you nearer to Sauce-stated Ryu status.

    flsxik, did you soak the jeans when you got them initially, to shrink to size.

    Cheap.... those Sams are great for how long you've had them; I actually dropped my jaw.

    On a side note, every one of your pics in the WAYWN thread has been great. Probably the consistant best in the thread (maybe a tie with Sauce). We have a really similar body type (I'm 6'6" 185), so they have helped me figure out the fits I need and how to wear my clothes correctly. Good wook and keep it up.

    Whodini...yeah it was kinda picture overkill...but ya know...the lighting was perfect.

    Empire. I soaked them for one hour when i first purchased them to get all the shrinking out. When I soaked em just recently I just threw em in the tub for an hour with no soap or anything in cold water with a bowl holding em down. Took em out and Lowery dried em.

    I wasn't trying to come off as sarcastic. I seriously would like a full head-to-toe front shot of the jeans. You only took one from the back.

    so which is better hot or cold wash?
    ive heard that hot wash gives more contrast while cold wash retains it a bit

    THey look fantastic.
    Thanks-- I bought it together with a pair of repro 201's XX. I'm glad I did because a year later, Levi's shut down it's factory and outsourced. They were the last pair of Levis I bought.

    How long have you had those, and have you washed? Were those pics with flash? Look pretty blue and light compared to my Kyrre XX

    I think I've had them for 18 months. Perhaps 10 wearings per month. Picture was with flash, so that is close to how they look in daylight. They still look pretty dark in indoor lighting.

    I have washed them, maybe 6 times in woolite dark, cold water, gentle cycle in the washing machine, hang dry.

    I'm actually a little surprised they have lasted this long, because the denim has such a light feel.
