Wow, shrink even more?! Jeesus. My 16" Calfs would rip that leg opening wide open, lmfao.

& yes we definitely should!!! Need some denim mod to set it up?

Let's get a census of who'd be participating first, don't want to have only like 3 people.. lol

1) GOLDENi
2) Wishezz
3) TKDESIGNROOM
4) Nitsuj

Anyone? I think a total of 6-10 would be perfect?

EDIT: I just PM'ed Sonny about it, hopefully hear from him soon.


i'm about two weeks in. i'm in i guess

It would be great to have you in this contest Backspace, we definitely need more people! Great to see more people are getting interested!

KNEE: 9"

God damn, literally took me like 20 minutes to button these bitches. My thumb hurts like a bitch.

These will be hard as fuck to take off.

I just want to apologize first for the bad quality of the pictures lol.

& No, that is not my room.


& Thank God I hemmed them, if I didn't the stacks would probably be up to my knees & would have to send them back to BiG just to get them hemmed. I am 5'9".

Haha no not baggy at all, its probably just cause I got big thighs (23") & big ass calfs (16"). They're def. not gonna look skinny on me but It's definitely slim. Not baggy at all.

I just need to let the denim settle a little bit & then the fit would be perfect.

Nah not baggy, just no shape yet. That's one of the reasons some people wear their denim after a soak. That is to uncomfy for me.

I told you golden. Those fuckin buttons are crazy at first they'll break in quickly.
Good fit though they'll take shape so keep wearing them.

Sweet! Thanks Wishezz, I'm wearing them as we speak, they're so stiff & its so hard to weak, keeps pinching me & shit.

& yeah you were definitely right about the damn buttons, my thumb still hurts lmfao.
I don't want to go piss just cause I have to unbutton & button them again, lol.

Can't wait for them to take shape & get comfier!

^fit does look a tad baggy from the pic, but maybe cuz they are still so stiff after soak so hasnt formed to shape your body yet. From the post-soak measurement u posted, I believe they will look slimmer after couple days. All new jeans r hard to button, it's because the denim hasnt loosen up yet, not necessary because it's too small for u. Nice buy!

Yeah, hopefully they'll look slimmer but honestly, the bottom half (below the knee, except for the stacks) are going to stay the same.
Like I said before, I have HUGE calves (16") & the jeans are already hugging onto them, took me a while to take off my jeans trying to pull off from the calves.. hopefully they stretch a bit down there though.

But overall, I'm loving them!

GOLDENi: nice new black stitched arcs. My lot 13 are plain pockets, but don't get me wrong I love them a lot.
They will look awesome when they settle, but there seems like you still got rooms around thigh areas. I'd try to get the most shrinkage out of them so the creases and combs will be awesome. blushing

All right let's get the contest begin!!

Thanks TKDESIGNROOM! Yeah, no doubt the arcs don't make the denim, still the same denim.
Yeah, I can't wait until everything settles, gonna be great!

& ha, wish there was still room on the thighs, they're actually pretty snug on the thighs. I just have big thighs (23").


As for the contest, we'll get it going once we get a few more people!!! :D

I think we'll have this contest last how long? A year? Or is that too long.

Hey GOLDENi, how'd you get arc and tabs at BiG? I thought there was a levi's lawsuit against arc and tabs in the US.

i would break the contest into parts, so 3 months (quarter finals) moves onto 6 months (semi finals) then moves onto 12 months (finals) @ which one person of the number of people standing at 12 months would be chosen as the winner.

that way at each stage of review, a certain number of contestants with the weakest progress get eliminated; kind of a sports elimination bracket that widdles down to the best of the best. lol idk some kind of contest idea like that if it makes sense. We'll have a poll thread at each stage, the ones with the fewest votes get eliminated (maybe 2-3 at a time)


That doesn't really work for denim though, since all people wear their jeans in differently (for example, they'll hold off on washing longer etcetera) and it's about the end result.. Maybe someone will have fast whiskers but a different person will get a really nice allround fade after a year, you can't tell during the in between periods.

Yeah, Asami is right that wouldn't work out.

I think we just go 12 months with this, everyone & we get a nice update like once a month or whenever you want to (update is PICS!!) & at the end of the 12 months, whoever has the nicest fades according to HB, that shall be the winner.

Difficult to button up as in, too tight? Or is it just hard to button up?
Because mine fit perfectly but it was SUPER HARD to button up, it was just cause the denim is super stiff. Seriously, my thumb still hurts from yesterday trying to button it up. Now though, its still kind of difficult to button up but way easier than yesterday.

Did you soak yet?

PICS PICS PICS!

Haha yeah, they are extremely hard to button up. Good luck to your thumb haha!

It was a little loose in the thighs, not too loose not too snug.
