hey everyone,

so I've been wearing my Thin Finn now for approx 2.5 months and I found this the right time to get some kind of photo updates or something going of my own..

here's some pics of day 2:

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN2253.jpg

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN2252.jpg

I even made quick Excel sheet of the days of wear, airing and days they have been away to get repaired.. I took all the info off my calender on which I update all of this :D

Gsko
3rd July 2007, 22:46

Gsko
3rd July 2007, 23:14

I think that those organizational skills and spread sheet work are the more impressive part of this little presentation. Find a good application for them ;)

Oh, and um...nice jeans too. :D

Looking good mate!
A lot has happened in those 2.5 months eh ^^

I just love them a little more everyday... omg.. I should seek help. xD

3rd July 2007, 23:33
Don't you have some kind of organizer in your cellphone? You should use that so you won't need a computer to count your wearing days ;)

Gsko
3rd July 2007, 23:35
Don't you have some kind of organizer in your cellphone? You should use that so you won't need a computer to count your wearing days ;)

true, true..

but still... this is kinda cooler xD

I might have to do all this stuff on my cellphone soon anyway when I'm leaving for vacation to Bosnia for about a month :)

Gsko
4th July 2007, 00:58
woah.. just found out I still got some pics on my phone of me wearing them this afternoon over at my friends house.

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSC04772.jpg

that's an electric toothbrush in my hand there.. in case anyone would start wondering :')

drydenimbabeeh
4th July 2007, 01:02
LOL Gsko,
I think the friend you were staying with had a good time in front of the mirror xD
Look at that nasty stain on your right butt :D

Gsko
4th July 2007, 01:04
you're sick timm xD

drydenimbabeeh
4th July 2007, 01:06
Hahaha I'm sorry mate!
I just happened to notice it

Gsko
4th July 2007, 01:07
well yeah it is kinda hard not-to notice :P

drydenimbabeeh
4th July 2007, 01:10
It's a typical bathroom wank-stain xD

Gsko
4th July 2007, 01:13
exactly :D

drydenimbabeeh
4th July 2007, 01:14
Haha thnx mate!
It's true =']

bilmaga
4th July 2007, 02:16
I also track the days I wear my jeans. I use a little notebook for each pair. That way, if i leave them alone for a month, I can keep track of the wear days.

cameland
4th July 2007, 18:31
those really fit you well for a size 36. Nice idea, i tried to do what you did once as well but i got lazy with it.

Gsko
4th July 2007, 18:37
thnx bro.

yeah I'm kinda scared I might start getting lazy with it too.. but I just really want to have an sheet like that :P

alain
4th July 2007, 18:38
how many note books do have than bilmage a hole closet of books ore something to keap track of all those jeans

bilmaga
5th July 2007, 02:23
I bought a shitload of books. But I only track the ones I wear. I still have lots of jeans that haven't been worn, just tried on.

drydenimbabeeh
5th July 2007, 02:32
Still, it keeps you rather busy right? :D

bilmaga
5th July 2007, 02:34
Oh yes ;)

drydenimbabeeh
5th July 2007, 02:39
I would do the same thing you guys do.
But I just don't really care about how much days exactly I wear my jeans :)
I just wear them hehe.

bilmaga
5th July 2007, 02:43
It just helps me out. That's all.

drydenimbabeeh
5th July 2007, 02:45
Yeah no I don't judge you or anything :)
I would do the same thing you do if I had so many jeans.
But I rather have a selected collection.
So I don't think it's neccesary for me hehe.

Gsko
25th August 2007, 16:25
hey wsup ya'll

it's been a while since the last time I posted any updates of my Thin Finn so here it goes =]

looking at about 4/5 months now if I'm not mistaking. pics were taken late last night before I went to bed

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN2714.jpg

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN2712.jpg

If you look closely you can see my wallet ripped my right backpocket :D which I think is awesome! just too bad you can't see it very clearly in this pic, I'll post a new one with the detail later maybe =)

Gsko
25th August 2007, 16:31
aand here's my Excel sheet of days of wear again :p

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/ThinFinnDateDiaryScreenshot24-08-20.jpg

drydenimbabeeh
25th August 2007, 16:47
Awesome man!
You keep it up like this and they will turn out really cool :D

Gsko
25th August 2007, 16:49

iwannudies
25th August 2007, 16:52
:shock: An excel sheet. Now that's dry denim love! I only keep track of how many days I'm actually wearing them.

Gsko
25th August 2007, 16:54
well that's kinda the same.. only with an excel sheet :D:D

deviousfool
25th August 2007, 19:02
very similar to mine, except for the backpocket rip and knee fading, which is cool. keep on rocking them man ! 8-)

Gsko
25th August 2007, 19:25

I'd like to see some kind of comparison :D

Lukeitfc
25th August 2007, 19:32
Comb fading looks awesome at the moment, really tight combs, I like it.

KillBill
25th August 2007, 19:33

deviousfool
25th August 2007, 19:45

Who are you to call anybody a lowlife..


edit: ohhh, you deleted your post................good idea

cameland
26th August 2007, 07:45
This is where your jeans begin to take off! After 5 months the fading seems to really start. Your thread has also give me the inspiration to make a similar photo diary thing. I'll report back if it turns out well.

Gsko
26th August 2007, 11:15
hehe glad u like it :]

keep us posted Dom

Gsko
10th October 2007, 17:42
another update =]

going at 5,5 months strong now

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3039.jpg

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3037.jpg

note the pics look a little odd compared to the older ones, it's because of the accidental editing.

anyways here's another one of the things I love most about them; the stacking

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3042.jpg

and also the knees started fading hella hard all of a sudden ;o which looks great imo ^^

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3044.jpg

and a close-up of the combs + ripped backpocket

looking really good. definitely hold out for a wash as long as you can.
i wish i had waited longer.

Gsko
10th October 2007, 17:49
lol just the right person to reply to these pics haha :P

yeah I think I definitely will... like at least another month or 2 more

drydenimbabeeh
10th October 2007, 18:12
Great update matey! 8-)
Your finns look better everyday.
I wouldn't wash them at all if you ask me.

Gsko
10th October 2007, 18:17
yeah I was actually considering that too :p

drydenimbabeeh
10th October 2007, 19:10
Only wash them if they are dirty :-)

craiggg
15th October 2007, 20:25
i tried on some thin finn dry stretch the other day.. the material felt realy soft and not as stiff as my slim jim dry greycast which i loved about them.. so i didn't get em..

but your pics make me think twice lol.. i need some slim jeans.. its either going to be these, or some thin finn dry black coated to replace the slim jims i just took back.

Gsko
15th October 2007, 20:50
lol that's pretty funny cause I'm actually most likely transferring to a SJDJ soon :p and also there's no wonder the Finns feel a little softer compared to Jims because they're a little less oz (10,5)

shit I really feel like getting Jims asap but I also really don't wont to drop my Finns yet.. especially as they're going pretty hard now and I know that if I buy Jims now it probably will happen.

tennisINjeans
15th October 2007, 21:04

bilmaga
20th October 2007, 21:51
Lookin good man:-D

Gsko
20th October 2007, 21:53
thnx bil ;)

their 8 days shy of making 6 months now :p and first wash will be next month if not, by newyears ^^

bilmaga
20th October 2007, 21:57
Man, time sure flies.


I remember when you just got these. You were amazed that Dave and Tiro knew that you got them at JP

Gsko
20th October 2007, 22:00
looolll.. dude.. don't tell me.. I can't believe where my past year has gone.. I can probably remember every day a year ago in detail :|

roirio
22nd October 2007, 18:27
why dont you wear it for a couple of months more. maybe you will get more fading and ripping. heheh. these looks great but i thnk it will be more great if you wear it like 8 months or 1 year maybe. hehe

Gsko
22nd October 2007, 22:26
yeah I made up my mind.. they're not gonna get a wash before 2008 :lol:

drydenimbabeeh
23rd October 2007, 01:24
Oh so when roirio tells you you listen eh :lol:

Gsko
23rd October 2007, 13:08
hahah :D

no I just really made up my mind dude (a)

drydenimbabeeh
23rd October 2007, 13:30
I think it's a very wise choice to not wash them yet :-)
Props to you my man :lol:

roirio
23rd October 2007, 13:54
hehe, thx alot for taking my advice man. hope you will get a great pair of washed nudie in the year 2008. it will be a new year present eh?haha

kronot
12th November 2007, 09:49
they're looking good! wonder how they look like now..
also did you size up on these?

Gsko
12th November 2007, 10:05
thnx mate =]

their actually going harder everyday now!

I'lll post pics again real soon, preparing for the wash btw ;)

btw on the sizing up part, I don't have any expierence on dry denim before so I don't really know ;p I just still lost some more weight now so I'll probably squeeze myself into some smaller Jims soon

Gsko
25th December 2007, 20:19
hey guys I hope some one is online right now to read this and respond.

I'm about to go wash my jeans now, the only thing is I don't exactly know how or what right now.

I was planning on washing them on a little less degrees (30/40) to keep the contrast strong but unfortunataly they have already faded off so much of the dark colour so I was starting to doubt to just wash them out a little lighter with more degrees (60?) and washing powder.



here are the Before-Wash pics, going at exactly 8 months now (25-4 / 25-12). Worn 178 out of 222 days

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/frontback9months.jpg


love these creases:

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3475small.jpg

and got the backpocket stitched a little since last time:

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3471small.jpg

Gsko
12th January 2008, 16:17
sooo I finally got the time and will to take and post the pics since I washed them. I washed them the 25th of december and first day of wear was 25th of April so that was a pretty funny 8 months coincidence :)

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/TFDSAFTERWASH8MONTHS.jpg

washed at 50 degrees mashine wash. obviously seems like the washing didn't do that much to the fading but feel free to drop ur thoughts

ps: yes I absolutely hate that phone fade.. its actually a phone RIP now :x I'm actually about to get that sewed.

RxHernandez
12th January 2008, 18:13
great job man,
obviously everything but the phone fade.
other than that things look spot on.

Gsko
12th January 2008, 18:16
alright thank you!

yeh but if you look at AceKieffers TFDS u'll see almost the same thing.. it's just about tight fits and such a "big" object in your poket

RxHernandez
12th January 2008, 18:20
yeah i have the same thing in my APC's
i loved it the first like 3 months and then i hated,
but i couldn't do anything from it because it was already faded...blahh

you need whiskering over it for it to look good and that takes more than a year of constant wear to pull ya know.

iwannudies
12th January 2008, 18:21
Good stuff GSKO. I love the stacking creases on my AJHD too :p The dreaded phone fade is the reason why I hold my phone in my hand everytime :evil:

drydenimbabeeh
12th January 2008, 19:01
great job man,
obviously everything but the phone fade.
other than that things look spot on.

Dude, why is it a bad thing?
You've gotta wear your dry jeans the way you wear all your jeans.
If someone puts his phone in his pocket in normal jeans he will do that with dry jeans also. So then it's obvious you'll get that kind of fade.
Where else should you put it then..?

Other than that,
looking good Gsko!
Made some great progress with these.

it's like ur taking the words out of my mouth.. digitally, lol :p no, but for real that is exactly the same thing I have. probably because it's my first dry and everything I've must've like it at first cuz any fades looked good back then and now it's like too late and I also feel like blaahhh about it.

little crotch rip-fix update

x posted but what the hey

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3705.jpg

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w70/Gsko/DSCN3707.jpg

pulled off a HUGE rip as you can see.. probably even bigger then Ace's. Pretty much all that is sewn was ripped. I have to say I'm pretty damn satisfied by the sewing, friend of my moms did it.

Creabea
18th February 2008, 18:10
Wow, I really think she did a great hell of a job. You're planning to keep wearing it a lot dispite this?

Gsko
18th February 2008, 18:13
yeah I know. Yes I do think I am gonna wear them for another while.. just put my MASA out to air and put the Finns on again. I'm really not done with these yet.

robert
20th February 2008, 21:09
pretty good job oldie.
my finns are ruined because they were too dirty to wear. but less fading.
but there ok.
i dont think the phone fading is ugly. i have it with all my jeans. i kinda like that.
its the way of life. you always put your phone there so its obvious that it fades.
but nice job and i hope youre masa will turn out fine too!

Gsko
20th February 2008, 21:19
thnx a lot mate :)

I used to think of the phone fade the same way before but now I just kinda changed my mind. but I seem to notice it on more and more Finns that are turning up.. all of them getting pretty harsh phone fades. I mostly try keeping my phone out of my pocket as much as possible to avoid any more fading, especially on my MASA since it's still newer.

other then that I'm still wearing my Finns pretty hard rotating with my MASA as I mentioned before, I think they still got some time ahead of them to wear.

jeps
20th February 2008, 21:21
Most of you guys seem to rock your phone in your front pockets, anyone put theirs in their back pocket? That's what i do... wondering how my TF will turn out as a result.

Gsko
20th February 2008, 21:24
Most of you guys seem to rock your phone in your front pockets, anyone put theirs in their back pocket? That's what i do... wondering how my TF will turn out as a result.

I'm actually always wondering another thing: what happens to your phone after your sitting on it daily with your whole friggin body? And isn't it also a bit uncomfortable? :confused:

jeps
20th February 2008, 21:32
I've been sitting on my phone for years now and I've never had any problems; but then again, I've got a pretty sturdy phone. I guess when i first started with the phone in the back pocket it was pretty uncomfortable but it was the only reasonable way to carry it around in girls jeans (this was before i found out about slim fitting jeans like nudies... i don't like to think about these days). But i guess i'm used to it now... plus i'm really not a fan of the phone fade in front, but i think it will look bad ass in back (no pun intended).

Dr.denim305
24th February 2008, 18:32
amazing how they came out 8-)

reGuar
24th February 2008, 21:37
those turned out amazing :O!

Gsko
25th February 2008, 10:19
wow thanks a lot on the comments u guys, I wouldn't say I'm disappointed in how they look so far but I sure as hell am not happy at the moment either.. but then again it's like 9 or 10 months now, I'll probably wear them as much as possible till they hit the year mark too and wash them again just like Ace.

i hate how the knees get all baggy after awhile and actually shorten your inseam by like a whole inch.

deviousfool
8th April 2008, 06:24
that happened to my finns after 1 week of wear.. but eventually the knee bulge will go away by itself. give them 3 months or so.

Well the jeans have a huge rip from the fly to the ass and a lot of times it hurts a shitload as the repair is stiff and sharp. And when you repair you basically glue a piece of other denim on the inside of the jeans and sow some stitches over it so it'll hold
