[Quote] He was also runner up from last year, I think they gave it to him on a time served type of thing. The leaf fade was...interesting. Meh, it is what it is. I still had fun.

Here are detail shots of the 1st runner up in the Red Core Fading contest. See the full results here: http://www.nakedandfamousdenim.com/blog/fading-contest-2-results/ They are different than the contest submission photos, they put a 5MB cap on submission emails so I was kind of handcuffed on detail shots. I also post as CharlieHustle on RAWR if they look familiar. Shout out to my hater. You know who you are, you piggly armed son of a bitch.

<a href='http://hypebeast.com/members/tooawesome/' rel='nofollow'>@tooawesome</a>, awesome, thanks! Love the gashes and soot-like scrapes. You gotta have balls to take those out past a few months from the looks of things. Would love to be a fly on the wall for explanation conversations on those. I'll spend some time walking back for pics of the franks.

Has anyone in the history of fashion forums seen a broken in pair of the reverse fades? I post here, and lurk on SUFU and SF and havent seen anything but some initial scrapes and wallet fades...Same thing with the frankensteins. Would love to see a turned out pair of those. Ditto for the grey casts. I own a pair, and have posted pics of them (retired, but not from wear, too tight), but still havent seen a dirty rotten pair and they've been in circulation since NF got started. Seems like the pics have been flowing more freely here lately though, good shit. I'm still geeking out over those "non-fading" regular Indigos RevYouUP posted a few pages back. Patience is a virtue, he proved it.

[Quote] I have no experience with starch. My creases are tight cause I sit a lot. Those deeps have a commuter crease on the left leg from where I used to sit in traffic 45 min to 1 hour a day with my left leg bent at the knee. Flash is on for my pics, so contrast is slightly exaggerated which may give that impression as well. I have no basis for comparison though. Not sure what starchy jeans look like.

RevYouUp, nice work on the regular indigos. Impressive.

I noticed where Mistabah-notmyfrienda has not treated anybody but me like shit over the past couple of weeks, so I'm assuming my long-winded diatribes have had their intended effect (big words rule!). In retribution, I offer pics. Here are my Deep Indigos (200smokeyface vs my E1's (bought on restock/warehouse sale from Jay Blueowl I'm guessing a little over a year ago). Needless to say, the E1's and the heavier NF cuts fade much faster than the Deeps (depending of course on the time you put into them). Flash is on in all these pics, so take of that what you will.

[Quote] You should read it; it is pretty funny and as I pointed out your "advice" is both contradictory and condescending. Also, the phrase you were looking for there is "case in point" buster.

[Quote] This is shitty advice. I own over ten pairs of NF and have been wearing the brand almost from when they launched. Previous hot soaks previously caused my stacks and comb fades to shift and they didnt "come back" in the same shape or area they had previously set in but in a few areas. Sanforized or unsanforized, soaking cotton in water leads to shrinkage and removal of creases avoidance of which was my goal. Take your snark on somewhere else cool guy.

Soaking just the top block of my red cores in a bucket of ice water right now and a dash of detergent. Just up to the crotch with the legs hanging free. I moved recently and wore them through the move. They stink, but I want to keep my stacks and combs intact. Anyone have any success using similar tactics? Advice? I dampened them and froze them first, figuring if I only kept them in there for 15 minutes or so that the water wouldnt be able to soak up the legs.
