erratik, how do you get yours to fade ?  My Eternal 811 is getting softer but it hasn't faded because I only got to wear it on weekends.

I thought they would fade easily, not that I'm impatience.  I like the dark blue colour with indigo patches of Sugar Cane Hawaii, that's the look I wouldn't want to fade.  biggrin.gif

Hmm, I sure will. My 501 STF's are fading nicely, and I can't wait to see how the 710xx's will fit and fade. I'm hoping to get them near the end of my summer break to wear them for the next winter/fall/spring. 19 oz. denim in the summer doesn't sound too welcoming to me.

yea my 883's are . . .14? 17?  one of the two, and they're terrible in this louisiana humidity. BUT DAMNIT I'M GONNA DEAL WITH IT BECAUSE THATS MY RESPONSIBILITY AS A MAN.

 

 

Not like those women who decided it's okay to wear sneakers with dresses instead of heels

I bought Momotaro this time.  The only thing I dislike about this slim fit is its small pockets.  This denim is well made with smooth feeling cotton inside and out.

Samurai S5000VX 17oz raw arrived yesterday.  The denim was rigid and rough, but it has softened a bit after a hot soak and a wash.  It's a regular fit with good build quality.

Can someone explain how these, the black coated indigo, will change over time? I've read contrasting things.

I've seen pictures of these just looking really shiny, like tight leather. If they get like this, will the shine wear off after a wash? Does the coating start to come off and the denim show through? I don't really understand, thanks a lot if you can help smily_headphones1.gif

Kicking mule workshop 1980 raw

what real men wear

post #552 of 682

it's going to stay shiny.  'dat coating don't wear off.  also, DO NOT wash them, they shrink like no other.

i mean, the coating is preferable to the black color fading, but it doesn't look good when really tight, so size up a bit

post #553 of 682

ah, not really a fan of the shiny thing :/ its a shame because I've seen them unworn and the coating looks really cool, if the coating just started to ware off after a while to show the denim it would be pretty cool imo. Looks like I'll just be looking at the 'drys' then, are the 'stretch dry' the same as the regular 'dry' ones? why don't Nudie just say unwashed like every one else? :)

 

Although, to be honest the only reason I'm even looking at Nudie is because they do my size, does anyone know of any other unwashed jeans available in 28" waist?
