View Full Version : Your personal Holy Grail of denim



Max Power
2nd September 2011, 11:56
It has been pretty quiet round here the last weeks.

I'll try to change this by asking for your personal "holy grail" jeans - jeans, that you would literallly kill to wear or own. There are many diferent preferences (washed-out, high contrast fades, vintage fades, destroyed etc.) - so let's see what you like best. Top notch material only.

(If you are confident, you can also post your own pairs here, but then make sure that they meet the criteria above).

I'll start and will post the highlights from my harddrive later, when I'm home.

I prefer japanese fabric and high contrast fades with a lots of combs and stacks. Some dirt doesn't sacre me neither. But there are lots of jeans I love that don't meet that criteria.

Now let's see your dream pairs.

I love all of these, but of all of them I must say Lowriders and Stukovx's are probably my favorite pair, they aren't super contrasty, but they are really nice. Max, your pair is sick though I love love love the combs on it. Some of these I just can't wear cause they are too contrasty for me, but I love them for how they look. I will post up some more pairs as they come, I have a ton of favorited pairs.

These APCs found on SuFu come very close to my "holy grail". Super destroyed, but without anything but real use (lots of skating, I understood), (very) long use with only one wash and one soak. Tight fit, "devil may care" attitude. Cool. Hot. "Eager" would be an understatement if I had a chance to obtain them.

2828 Wow many nice pairs up there, BUT I own non of them. Well let's set the target to sth that I own and is possible to acheive shall we? ;) for example this pair of TFDS. I know nudies are famous for losing their colour fast and their overrated popularity and their crotch rips and their cotton quality as compared to japan brands and prices and so on...but when I look at that pair, it will always make me awe unbelievably long. Lovely pair for period.

5th September 2011, 19:04
Indeed, the pair that longjohnie posted, and b_F*s "extreme" pair do very much appeal to me. The former I would love a frontal view of, so one could appreciate the blown-out knee better, and the latter---I'm no friend of patches in such highly contrasting colours, much cooler to leave damages unrepaired.

What really causes joy with me: most pairs that are shown here as examples of jeans that people salivate over are really badly damaged. I realise my taste is by far less "exotic" than I thought.

laxlife1234
5th September 2011, 19:25
Gotta admit as far as nudies go - yes they are capable of fading very nicely. But the one downside I found is you have to wear them and make sure they are faded in the right spots before the first wash otherwise they will hardly fade anymore. What I mean is that you won't be able to achieve honeycombs as you would have been before the first wash that is not to say they won't fade though cause they still will fade. But I found that even after a ton of washes japanese denim retains the indigo very well and you can still wear them and they will still fade with ease. IMO nudies skin tight cuts though have the worse fades I mean it is just horizontal lines, while looser cuts have much better fades (all opinion though).

5th September 2011, 20:33
^ That's what is so great about (dry) denim though. Obviously people have their preferences, but the fact is that different fits/types of jeans produce completely unique fades. I LOVE how you can tell exactly what the fit (and even denim) is like just by looking at a pair laying on the floor. Can't do that with a prewash. :-)

Sorry, I don't have much knowledge about them, like I said, I took them from my harddrive. This is the front of the first pair, I think they could be skulls, but I don't know.

And more denim to die for. Max, you've really hit it with this thread, and thanks for the extra info. I've long thought that Skulls rank among the coolest (and sexiest...) jeans of them all, this make somehow seems to have the magic formula. Can't wait for my own to finally be repaired. The Nudie posted by Kmart is also very cool, interesting heavy frontal damage, while the back is surprisingly intact. I'm almost thankful they are zipper jeans (can't have those...) so for once, I'm not suffering from an acute "wanna have, wanna have" crisis!

APC from kidkorea on HB. Fades are really subtle and nice. It is nice to see a pair of APCs for a change that aren't looking very contrasted.

Not always, after all I got two myself. But right, generally I find japanese denim to fade in a more interesting way, I like heavier denims, slubs, hairy denim and high contrast - nothing you find on LVC. But this pair is killing it. One of the best parts are the fadings around the front pocket lining.

I need to get a dirtier job, as most of the pairs I post here show signs of dirt.

Samurai S0500XX (thx Flo!)

Are these really Samurais???

I've never seen such a great pair

Maybe if I wear the pair I ordered very naughtily on 28.12.2011 will look like that if I wear them for 2 years but I don't like holes and patches - I just live the uniqueness of the colour fading away.
Shame FlatHeads are too big for me as they fade brilliantly as well.

When I lived in Paris I tracked down and wore 2 pairs of genuine 80s Levi's with Selvedge etc.. Amazing quality.
Sadly I didn't realise how rare they were and when I lost a lot of weight due to illness they went.
You could have had them - you'd have loved them .The shop sold genuine Levi's dating back to the 1920's.
I still want to visit your museum.
Now I only wear Selvedge jeans.

TBH, I don't understand where the latest talk about sandpapering etc. comes from. To me they look "real" in terms of fading, but even if they would have been "helped" fading - they look great. And, if I may say, typical for indonesia or asia, where the humid climate seems to bring out such fades.

I gotta concur as well. Been seeing a lot of great jeans getting flamed on sufu. And while it's true hot and humid countries like indo have produced some crazy fades and you even have the user say he worked in construction, you still get people asking right after: "YO BRO. WHAT GRIT OF SANDPAPER U USE?? LOL"

Not calling you out B_F (cuz you've only made posts to rightfully sketchy jeans), just voicing my opinion on the guys who love to jump to that conclusion when they see massive contrast.

Compared to the millions of heavy faded jeans I have seen since 1973 they really look like natural fadings.
I couldn't exclude perhaps a little help on some front whiskers.
But those pants are looking amazingly to me.
And the fadings structure are all at the right places.

Cold Summer
3rd April 2012, 03:26
I like high-contrast fading but the most important thing for me is the final color of a well-worn pair. I really dislike how a lot of jeans (APC and graycast Nudies, I'm looking at you) turn to a washed-out white-gray color after a lot of wear and washes, and I'm not really a big fan of 'vintage' style fading either. I tend to like more unique sorts of fabrics (PBJ's 11 and 07 denim, Samurai blue shadow, etc.) more than the vintage-Levis-of-the week sort of look.

TFH doesn't have as many unique details (elaborate rivets, buttons, pocket fabric, etc.) as a brand like Samurai or Roy, but their denim combined with attractive arcs/pocket designs are a nice fusion of vintage quality with slightly more modern styling.

Max, you would absolutely wreck some FH jeans. 3009 would be a good fit on you. And I completely forgot you already posted one of these pairs...!

But because of this overflow, I almost can't remember any names or phone numbers and it's very hard for me to memorize persons when they don't come with specific raw denim stuff

In fact quite a bunch of heavy used raw denim stuff has ended up in the Jeansmuseum to enjoy their eternal retirenment in the real world not in the virtuel web only.

But I don't wanna boring you too much with uploading many pics from items I havn't worn by myself

^^And Kybosh/GMC Motorsport heavy weight raw denim stuff have all reached or even paassed the Holy Grail status!

And this pic is just overwhelming.
Many great whiskers around and I can see quite a bunch of stackings as well
Would love to see all of them in full front and back pics
would love to see them, too. lots of amazing pairs...


Good to see you, Atzec. And a worthy picture...I hope to see you round here more often.
cheers, max. we´ll see what happens. i haven´t lost interest in denim, but i´m short on time most of the times....

Man I know what you mean about short of time.
I should probably have some additional 10 or more raw denim hours every day

So this might be a bit cheese, and different from what everyone else has shown, but the things I would do for this pair is scary...

I've practically begged them to release these again.

^what pair is it? TFDBC? You should be able to get a pair round here in the marketplace with time.

They said it was the TLJDBC...it seems to me it could also be the TLJUIC. I bought the TFDBC and TFBCI hoping that they will turn out somewhat like those.

Ohhhh, those pics are really making me mad:
I should have some other 1000 years of life to break in some more items the hard way
Since I need over 2 years to burn down one pair of jeans and 6 years for one denim jacket only

But those items above have really reached the holy grail status!!!!

Wow Flo

Just amazing update!!!
Where did you find those pants?????

They are even more than just a Holy Grail denim

Really impressing!!

Would be interesting to know how many days of wear and how many washes

Max Power
14th July 2012, 09:04
It's from the Eternal Contest. USer said it's been "many washes".

Cold Summer
14th July 2012, 10:39
They look amazing, but haven't really changed at all since the last pictures in January-February-ish. Eternal denim is weird, it's like it just stops evolving after a while. I like 'em dark though so that's not really a bad thing. I wonder what the brass thingy on the belt loop is for?

Max Power
14th July 2012, 11:18
It's a key hook, pretty practical cause you can easily unlock it. The size is not my cup of tea, like he last IH brass monster chains.

swiss-jeansfreak
17th July 2012, 00:33
Yeahhh fully agree.
The stains and the shiny raw denim colour on the prewashed pics just brings my raw denim blood to cook!!!

Those pants made my day.

Just unbelievable.

I wanna see more updates from them for another long time here on the forum

ThinFinn
18th July 2012, 13:14
though i love dirt stains on a pair of great used jeans...but these are almost way too many for my liking!
2 washes couldn´t remove all the "dirt" out of my 634s-raw, so i have to live with the stains, which i can ;-)
i see i need to post here more :-P

19th July 2012, 00:56
When a hard used raw denim pants was worn in an authentic way, then the dirt in them belongs to them as an authentic part of their life

ThinFinn
19th July 2012, 13:59
word...

but you also see that washed jeans do look pretty badass, after a long time of wear, right!?...
ruedi PLEASE wash your denim´s for us...i wanna see the postwash progress ;)

swiss-jeansfreak
20th July 2012, 00:54
Aahhh Raffa I'm so sorry to hurt the fading comunity here. And I agree that I have seen many nice washed items with super great fadings around

I would love to wash all my raw denim stuff if there would be a way to go back to the unwashed version again.
I'm still so hooked up on the never washed shiny raw denim colour since my childhood. The items don't have to be dirty or stained but just still in dry condition.

Who knows if I'll be ever able to do so at least with one or two pants or denim jackets some day?

Perhaps when my raw denim eyes will be turned in to sort of raw denim blindness?

ThinFinn
20th July 2012, 18:22
Ruedi, you own way more than 7000pairs of denim jeans (not talking jackets here!)...i/we just want you to wash ONE of them :)
not that hard, right? :-P

I think this is my favorite among all the pairs I posted. It has dirt in it, strong contrast, is washed but not bleached out, has some rips, great traintracks and still looks wearable. This is my grail.

Out of all the jeans posted here, I think Repeat to Fade's (http://repeattofade.blogspot.jp/2007/09/samurai-s0500xx-8-months-wash.html) Samurai S0500xx are my absolute favorites. This is pretty much the perfect pair of jeans, IMO: the beautiful aquamarine color, perfect contrast, and seriously impressive vertical fades.
