Sup fellas, its been a minute since I've posted an update on my dukes. Recap: First wear was late fall of 2008 with very little wear until fall 2009. Since then i've washed these once and been wearing almost everyday. Crotch has been ripped and fixed. Picture quality isn't the greatest and the color representation is slightly off (for example, the area below the knees are a lot darker) but rest assured, these have not been edited etc. Will try to get better pictures soon.
Wear: A few days after January and it'll be 7 months of wear
Recently wore it for snowboarding (underneath snowpants) for 2 days. The top of the jeans and my honeycombs got soaked, along with my stacks. To dry it, I placed it near a fire place. It got dry, removed the fucking nasty smell, BUT shrunk the waist 1.5"
ORIGINALLY 30" -> 33" -> shrunk: 31.5 -> restretched: 32"
