    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..

    I never really realized how much my jeans faded until now, comparing them to a brand new pair..

    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:

    gah it's so wild to see the side by side comparison.
    Good luck on the new ones, you going to retire the broken ones to weekender/biking status?

    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?

    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.


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