    I decided to soak my XX-type 1951yesterday. Totally dry this morning.

    The denim is really interesting. These horizontal weft yarns remind me a tiny bit of Samurai's old Jins denim.
    See for yourself:

    I have to say, I really love if you find new details on your jeans even when you've already worn them for some weeks.

    as I know how Denimes (at least the Shins ones behave) I gave the top block a little soak to freshen up the denim and threads.

    The whiskers nearly set back in at the old spots

    I've worn them for almost 2 months (90% of the time) and maaaan...they are sloooow faders.

    Here's a shot of the backpocket, but already some weeks ago.
