    ^^Nudie_longjohnie: Because of lack of time and money at the moment, those items were just on hangers for the moment. In case I can convince some denim brands companies to participate with some sponsorships, I have a concept already to set up all the stuff in a properly Jeansmuseum.

    About some videos.
    The press guys were from 20 minutes online, a local newspaper for free. I don't have experience to upload vids so far, but I have a video cam by myself. And perhaps I can just make a little vid by myself with some explanations and upload it here. But then you have to tell me how to reduce the size of the video

    ^And Kayo: Wy are you on the wrong thread???

    Some more updates on the Pike Brothers will follow over the weekend

    Still no answer from almostnice where I have to send the jeans to

    Hello Ruedi-nice running into you here.
    Could you upload the video on youtube? Then it would be really easy to just embed the link to the youtube address, even I managed that (for some music vids) after a one-sentence explanation from dear Max Power.

    In 1996 I gave one of my jeansmuseum flyers to a young man. And now he remembered me again and came back with his 6 pairs of beloved and well worn jeans for the museum:

    He even still had my little 15 years old flyer inside his old pants:

    Some heavy transportation from my home to the Jeansmuseum. I just saved this from the garbage along the road and can use it as a shelf to present some fading series in the Jeansmuseum:

    2011-11-24 and 25:

    Escaping the swiss low land fog and went for work in the wood at my parents place. Because of too heavy and dirty job, the Pike Brothers had a day off:

    My chain saw:

    Cutting a tree, sorry for the too dark picture

    DSC01675-red.jpg

    And here we go, another piece ready to take home

    A lazy afternoon in warm and sunny weather in the alps:

    DSC01690-red.jpg

    My 2 old Lee Storm Rider and Lee denim jackets:

    DSC01692-red.jpg

    Do you think, I have to downgrade them as my second class jackets? I still love them and use them at work in the office, but I have to use the back entrance since a while. Both jackets are fighting since quite a while for a downgrading to receive a much more wilder life with more fun, actions and adventures on the real rough side!!!

    Congrats on those last additions to your museum, Ruedi! That's such a great story, a contact from 1996, and now it comes to fruition. And the denim looks really hard-used and beaten up, cool.
    I hereby declare I'm gonna start saving for a trip to Zurich. I HAVE to look at all this stuff and take shameless advantage of your offer to let me try things on.

    For a moment I thought they reported on our little endeavour. So, another contest...*sigh*. I think they will be hard pressed to compete with hours, alone Ruedi's leg should stand as evidence.

    Sorry for the bad pic links on my last 3 updates. I corrected it so all pics are visible now.

    And soon my last updates will come, since the pants are already washed (yes I have done it) and packed and ready to leave the house tomorrow morning. I added some stuff, hope almostnice will like it,.....

    I would really like to continue here, but it's time to move on and hand them over to the next person.

    I still could join for a second round if wished.

    As always, the last updates were unbelievable. If I was to decide, I'd let you keep these jeans for one whole year!

    Thanks for your comments. I would be willing to wear those Pike Brothers for another full year, but this would be after the Samurai contest. So you would have to wait quite a long time, since I always just wear one pants at a time, and those Sammies will be on my body for at least 2 or more years as I hope. That means over 700 days of constant daily wear as my first class office jeans

    Anyway, I hope I can upload my last updates this weekend
