modernART I looked at the first entry on your site and your size 33 skinny fit measures to 31-32"? That's crazy, if that's how they all are I'm glad I saw that. And good progress so far by the way.


Thanks, man. Glad to see my blog coming in handy for a few people.

For anyone who might've missed it, here are photos after 35 consecutive days of wear:

Aye nice fades for 35 days. Here is my story on my black unbranded/ I got the black unbranded and it takes a long time to fade than the blue. No distress after 2 months, and alittle fading started at 2 months. At 3 Months, I soaked them, and now the fades are coming down really fast! So if you want to fade fast for these jeans, then you have to soak before wear. At 3 months plus, a small, small hole appeared around the crotch area. as small as a pin? I didnt want to wear these too long though so i really dont mind. Does anything think that the dye smells bad ahha i do.

I dropped a can of paint today which splashed onto my jeans. FUUUCCKKKK! So they are now having their first wash for 5 months, I could have easily gone longer if I didn't have the accident.

Don't worry about it, it's all a part of the process. The way the jeans turn out should reflect your life when you wear them and accidents like that happen

That sucks. A similar thing happened to me. I washed mine at 5 month because of a new year's puking incident.

Yo raw denim experts,

I'm going on almost 6 months now. I feel like a lil ickiness, if you know what I mean, when I wear them now. Should I freeze them to kill the bacteria or go for a wash?

Wash them if they have decent contrast already. Mine didn't lose too much indigo when I cold machine-washed them at 5 months. Here is what mine looked like after the wash:





I will update in a bit with what they look like after 7 months.

Damn. What do you do while you wear these? Mine don't look like anything close to your's and they're nearing five months as well.

I honestly didn't wear them that hard. Just wear from the everyday life. They're skinnies btw.

Glad you like the blog, man! I plan on wearing them everyday for 1 whole year before washing them. I started on January 1 of this year.

Here are photos of the jeans after 6 consecutive weeks (42 days) of wear:

^haha, to be honest, i don't even need a belt to keep the jeans on my waist. i've gotten so used to wearing a belt with all my jeans in the past that it almost feels weird not to wear one. it's kind of like my outfit would be incomplete without a belt. it has become automatic just to wear one since i've grown accustomed to always wearing one all these years.

True waist is a 32. Sized up 1 to a 33. Keep in mind I went with "skinny" and not the "tapered".

These are really hard to work in sad



True waist 30, went to 32 in the skinny's. I've owned them since July, but I rarely wore them up until January so maybe 30 wears.
