    Hey guys...haven't posted in a long time....was really busy this summer with a University research project + some part time work...
    I didn't get any chance to wear the jeans, litterally. They blew up in April at the crotch and I meant to repair em...
    Well I finally got around to em...today...took a few seconds.

    The main reason why I didn't want to repair it because I couldn't find a good tailor who would not unstitch+wash+destroy the jeans in the process. I tried a hack job myself with thread/needle but that messed up because the repair patch shrunk.


    Anyways, I think this will be a nice update. It might shock you. Viewer discretion advised.

    Notes:
    1)I bought those sugar canes used in 2006, unfortunately a last minute puberty + urge to gain muscle rendered them useless for me.
    2) The sugar canes have excellent hidden quality, note the pockets...triple lined at the bottom with an extra layer of linen+denim. Those canes retailed for less than these Lab Big Bengts.
    Shows that $$ does not equate to quality.
    3) Yes I know the magazine's date is Sept 13th, but I just got it in the mail today. I don't read newspapers, I just get my news through online. But it is the current issue.

    I'm going to start wearing them again. They've actually became one of my favourite jeans in both fit and appearance. OH and nice pictures progress guys =)

    Nice Jeans but why did you use glue for the repair?

    Felt like trying something new. I read this on SuFu. It takes 24 hours to cure. I'll let you guys know what happens after. It was advertised to be really strong and from the outside, it looks like a very clean patch in. No threads, no nothing, etc. Plus I'm a lazy college student. What do you expect =)

    Oh and the glue is advertised as "great for fabric repairs" and will sustain the bond even through washing... (not like guys like us wash our jeans that often anyways haha)
    Oh well, I can be a pioneer and post my results. I'll be your guinea pig.

    I could never destroy a raw denim pants just for repairing another pair of jeans. I would have taken just a common denim patch instead

    I'm just a lover of natural worn out denim aging or evolution process, so every cutting of raw denim is breaking my heart. That's why I also never cutting old jeans for using as shorts, no matter how bad or ugly condition of the pants.

    Here it is, my lab bengts almost at the 1.5 year mark. I must admit i havent been really wearing them over the last 6 months, the crotch is worn well beyond the rest of the jeans and they are more or less retired to light wear.

    So, i think this contest needs a bit of a revival... lets make this thing happen, time to finish it off!
