i dont think theyre dry blacks.
but that could be me

bilmaga
20th March 2007, 04:39
No, they are blue. He just answered the same question in the "what are you wearing" thread.

But in that light they do look like the DB

mml6691
20th March 2007, 04:39
in that light, they almost look greycast to me. but yeah, i guess it is just blue

Yeah they do actually. That would be sweet if they made a finn in the greycast.

acekieffer
20th March 2007, 05:13
I wanted something that was a bit slimmer..especially below the knees.
I'll still wear the slim jims...

yours look awesome. much better than mine. mine have crazy bunching at the knees then go skin tight at the calves/shins so it looks weird. much like this guy's pair of TFs:

http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/6153/albumez4.jpg

if they don't loosen up a bit so they fall/bunch naturally in the next week or two i'm gonna have to get rid of 'em.

I own an W800i btw. hopefully not for long anymore though ;p

acekieffer
28th August 2007, 06:39
I have an iPhone now. But that fade came from an LG chocolate.

drydenimbabeeh
28th August 2007, 07:34
Awesome dude!
How is that iPhone working for ya?

-Jay-
28th August 2007, 07:42
nice jeans dude.. keep it up. How do they fit compared to Slim Jimmies?

Gsko
28th August 2007, 08:51
woah nice.. Iphone :o

and also the Chocolate is kinda the same shape as the w800i hence the phonefade shape ;p

drydenimbabeeh
28th August 2007, 09:30
Yeah except the Chocolate is crap hehe.

Gsko aren't you at school mate :P ?
I have cisco atm -.- fcking boring.

acekieffer
28th August 2007, 16:21
iphone is good.

i had slim jims before these.

thin finns are much slimmer..especially at the leg opening.
and the lower yoke and back pockets.

overall, a much better fit for me.

soap1984
21st September 2007, 04:11
Sorry...I was asking ace. Just because I like the fit and we have an identical body type.

-Jay-
23rd September 2007, 09:32
Wow those fit very nice on you. What is your actual waist size? I'm trying to get a similar fit but I don't know exactly how many sizes I should go down. Any advice? Thanks

Um. I'm not too sure. I think my actual waist is probably around 30. which is what my thin finns are..but i did that because i didnt want them to be skin tight. the waist was still tight at first.

i can fit a 28 in APC.

Is the waist tigher than slim jims or about the same?

acekieffer
25th September 2007, 04:45
well its stretch so its a bit different.

25th September 2007, 08:30
well its stretch so its a bit different.

what do u mean?

cameland
25th September 2007, 08:39
He means they contain 2% spandex/elastine, so they give a little bit more than the jims which are 100% cotton.

acekieffer
7th October 2007, 04:15
washed them at 6 months.
nothing special really. was kind of dissapointed.
they definitely got bluer. not as much fading as I had hoped but it's ok.

7th October 2007, 10:49
Did they fit tight or loose before the wash?

Gsko
7th October 2007, 11:58
yeah the wash wasn't spectacular tbh :o

I was thinking of throwing mine in the washing machine soon but now I'm kinda having second thoughts

I think I'll save up some patience for just a little longer then

acekieffer
7th October 2007, 16:52
they started to fit kind of loose before the wash, especially in the thighs and waist.
they tightened up a bit after the wash but now they are stretching back out again.

before i washed them i was planning on washing these and then getting a new pair of jeans to start on but now i think im gonna hold off on new ones and just keep wearing these. maybe go another six months and then wash again.

did you size down?

Gsko
7th October 2007, 17:25
that'd be cool ace

I'm also planning on wearing mine for at least more then 6 months.

just the fit is kinda annoying me a little at times.. I will most likely get something a little less tight next time, probably SJDJ

acekieffer
8th October 2007, 00:11
i got a 30. which is probably my normal waist..or maybe one size smaller. i didnt want them fitting super tight.
i definitely could have fit into something smaller if i wanted to.

oh, and its a little notebook in my back left pocket

acekieffer
29th October 2007, 07:26
is it weird that both sides of the jeans are fading way different.
kind of sucks haha
cause the left leg is fading nice, started to get good whiskers in the front thigh and knee and some good fading on the thigh. and on the right side its kind of dull, not much going on ha. its really weird.

Gsko
29th October 2007, 08:48
lol yeah I kinda noticed it on my finns too.. especially the whiskers seemed to look very different from each other in the beginning ;o

hey but are you still wearing your pair Ace??

acekieffer
29th October 2007, 13:39
yup

acekieffer
21st November 2007, 07:30

are you still putting the iphone in your pocket?
and what've you got in your back pockets.. assuming wallet is one.

acekieffer
21st November 2007, 17:22
the phone fade on the front right pocket was from my old chocolate phone.
i now carry my iphone is my front left. no fading yet from that.

in my back pockets i normally carry wallet in back right and one of those mini composition notebooks in back left.

in that picture i had nothing in my pockets though.

HAHA i have noticed that one of the legs on my high kai are tighter than the other, and that one pair of chucks i own are smaller than the other when you tye them hehe.

Jeans look really dope, used but not too destroyed, nice job.

22nd November 2007, 22:16
Fade and fit turning out really well. But, I don't like turn-ups on TFs. I think the stacked look is better.

acekieffer
23rd November 2007, 05:23
yeah.
i just like to switch it up a bit.
most of the times i dont cuff at all.
sometimes one cuff, sometimes two.
its random really.

acekieffer
27th November 2007, 10:56
unfortunately, even though they dont need it, i think im going to wash them again.
my legs have been getting really itchy and im hoping its not because of the jeans (most likely just dry air, cold weather) but i think im going to wash as a precaution.

iwannudies
27th November 2007, 11:16
I would have thought dry air be good? Seeing as humidity will encourage mould growth?

acekieffer
1st December 2007, 06:55
thin finns are currently drying.

second wash:
washed at about 8.5 months on hot


first wash was at 6 months on warm.

will hopefully post pictures when they are dry, maybe tomorrow night?

acekieffer
1st December 2007, 08:34
after the first wash there wasnt a whole lot more fading..just the fading that was already there become a bit more noticeable. and the jeans got alot bluer all together. more contrast all around.

26th December 2007, 08:18

hellz yeah he did =)

I've just seen them half an hour ago.. I'd say I'm not surprised by the result but also not disappointed really.

this is probably the best quote about the wash:

I hate the cell phone fade but what I hate more is carrying my cell phone with me in my hands or clipped to my belt like a contractor/police man. I like having it in my back pocket with my Zippo. If our jeans are to reflect our lifestyle, how we live, then cell phone fades are an unfortunate part of it. So, though I don't prefer it, I will not alter my lifestyle to accomodate my jeans fades. And you shouldn't either, Ace! The Finns look rockin' awesome, cell phone fade or not!

wow..i wish you good luck with that one. How are you planning to find a JP wallet?! Other than that..i don't understand what you mean with your question, you want to hang your keys on your wallet or just something to attach your wallet to your beltloop? If you don't like chains you should get a leather strap. Take a look at some RM-straps, they look great but they're pretty expensive though.

The kind of carrier I have for my mobile phone is made of cloth material with a strong plastic clip. You can clip it to your jean's belt loops or to your car keys, if you want to carry it. I think I got it at American Eagle. I do anything to keep it out of pockets--for the sake of the jeans and the phone, especially if the jeans are tight.

I find crotch rips looking so good lol.. I'm still hoping mine goes out so I can get it repaired and then wear again.

their looking pretty good btw, mine look pretty simular though.

but I am thinking of retiring mine.. I just kinda don't feel the same about them anymore, especially the fit. but also I'd find it such a shame to give them up now after 8 months and first wash :(

acekieffer
20th January 2008, 00:04
my mom sewed the crotch up..i might get an iron on patch for the inside to secure it a bit more.
happy to have them back in action haha.
going to keep wearing them.
might pick up a new pair at the denim bar sale and just hang on to them until im ready.

so I went to a party at the Denim Bar tonight. everything was 50% off so I couldn't resist buying a new pair of thin finns. all they had was 29/34 and 31/34 so I went with the 29.
I think I'm going to continue wearing my current finns for another month or so (to hit the 1 year mark) before I start wearing the new ones.

Just shy of 11 months..

yeah great!thx for the quick answer man.im having a hard time to get my back pocket where i put my wallet fade.i see in the other thread that RRDS only took 9 days for getting its backpocket fade.is it because of the denim?

acekieffer
9th February 2008, 18:40
i think its the lighting that gives them that hue..they are really more blue.

and dont stress about the wallet fade...just wear your jeans and give it time.
if you keep waiting for stuff to fade its going to seem like its taking forever.

wow I really need a pic like that too.

I've been waiting for so long to see that. I have a pic of my old TFDS (at 8 months) next to my newer MASA but I really want one next to a fresh pair of Finns

edit: I was just looking at those old vs new TF pics again and honestly from the front both our Finns are almost exactly the same minus the stacking and coinpocket fade. You even have the EXACT same whiskers / phone fade as me :lol:

Good luck on the new ones, you going to retire the broken ones to weekender/biking status?

14th February 2008, 02:49
Aces' finns are a prime example of a subtle fade without much contrast but still look awesome. Great colour, the back is especially good.

Also, did you just buy some new brown authentics?

acekieffer
14th February 2008, 03:52
you going to retire the broken ones to weekender/biking status?

yeah I think so. I'm gonna wear the old ones mostly for about the next month to hit the one year mark, then wash them and wear them every so often and work on the new ones.



Also, did you just buy some new brown authentics?

Yeah I bought them not too long ago at the outlet and just got around to wearing them the other day.

I'm still going to fix the old crotch again, I've just gotten lazy about it. But it's starting to rip in the front too now.

Gsko
14th February 2008, 15:01
I know what you mean... even though mine is sewn hella good now (if I say so myself) I'm scared they're gonna rip again anyways as the denim just keeps getting thinner surrounding the crotch too. for some reason I believe I'm also just gonna move onto heavier denims in the future.

my stacked skinny's just wore out in the crotch area.
i dont know... felt a little thin the other day on that spot... after i spilled coke on them the day before
i think they were just too tight and the friction wore them out... specially when they were wet on that part.
i dont have a rip... more of a wear out.
sucks to that, cause now that i wear levis 511's again...
they dont feel tight enough! i was used to the thigh huggers!

I think this is the 3rd wash. hot wash. inside out. hang dry.
Just short of 12 months.
crotch needs some professional repair help, hopefully soon.
combs are really flat and subtle. so is most of the rest of the fading.
i think its because the first wash was too soon into the process, and i washed on cold.
with my new pair ill try to wait it out longer.
forgive me, i was quite lazy with the picture taking...

just keeps amazing me how much they look like mine.. pretty cool we also have bought and worn them around almost the same time. I'm gonna try wearing mine of till end of March so they reach the 1 year mark and then wash again too. Mine will be the second wash then.

Read the thread, answer is there ;-)

washed them at 6 months.
nothing special really. was kind of dissapointed.
they definitely got bluer. not as much fading as I had hoped but it's ok.

Why do my finn's fit like loose in the lower legs, yet EXTREMELY skinny in the upper thigh? I don't have big thighs, but after I did the initial soak, they became a lot tighter around the thighs.

watermelon91
30th October 2010, 22:36
mine are a bit looser on the thighs and tighter around the calves. soaking them probably messes up some of the elastin?
