cross post from sugar canes thread

haven't had these long, id say maybe 2 and half to three weeks. Since this is pretty much the sugar cane thread, thought i'd share. First two are just some macros of the jeans cause the details are nice. Last picture is wear from about a full week. Haven't worn these a lot because walking to class is a bitch in the summer.

X-post from APC thread...

APC NS, first wear on me. A friend of mine bought these and wore them 3 or 4 times and then sold them to me. He bought true to size (28, and we're almost exactly the same build) and that was a bad call. They're definitely going to end up too big, but I'll keep wearing them I guess. Fit pics:

try using a belt, its only thing you can do to prevent stretch from getting bad
goodluck with the apcs


July 20, 2008 @ 23:41:12
Yeah, I have been using a belt. I'm more worried about the rest of the pants than the waist.

OK. So some of you may remember from a while back I posted that we at CONTEXT were going to conduct a denim experiment where we gave a pair of jeans to our friend, Don. Don is the head brewer and plant manager at the local brewery and is a metalworker, handyman and builder. We picked him because he is harder on his clothes than anyone we know and he cares nothing about fashion or his personal appearance. So we gave him these jeans and told him to wear them to work every day for one year without washing them. Every Wednesday I take photos of them at the brewery. At the end of the year we will wash them and hang them on the wall at CONTEXT with 52 pictures (one from each week of the experiment) in chronological order and a brief synopsis of the experiment. We had also planned to make a website called donsjeans.com that would have weekly updates, but never found the time. Anyway, Don scoffed at us, insisted they wouldn't last a month, but eventually agreed.
We gave him the Atelier LaDurance Royal Pant on JULY 1.
That is 5.5 months ago.
He has done as we asked and, needless to say, he is ahead of schedule.
These things are FILTHY.
He has developed a hole on the right front thigh from carrying screws in his pocket, so we are going to patch that with the denim from the repair kit that came with the jeans. He will then resume wearing them for the rest of the year.
For reference sake, he bought a pair of Caterpillar boots at Farm & Fleet the same week as he started with the jeans and had to replace them 2 weeks ago.

I really like Atelier La Durance jeans, only place near me that i can get them they cost

my shrink to fits, wore in the shower when i first got them, had them about 4/5 month. Wear these for riding as they're not too tight. CHECK OUT THAT SADDLE ASS!!

Now got a pair of 511's but only had them a few weeks

Trust me, this "hype" you speak of will be dead and this will be forgotten (hopefully sooner than later.) For the sake of denim enthusiasts out there, I hope people get bored with this and give up after their first year and go back to whatever they were wearing.

It's better that way anyway--people who're getting into it are in it for the wrong reasons.

So. Good for you.

and a year plus later, here we all are
