    Best RRDS in a long time. I like how the backpockets look.

    agree. ironically, what makes the cut works is what some [purists] dont' like about some of sda's cut. they were saying the low-mid rise is oddly unproportioned to the more generously cut upper thigh.

    in 105s case, they did same waist/upper thigh proprtion as 103, but lowered the rise a bit. took a strong taper from upper thigh to the knee [slim knee], and then open up slightly [1" from knee to hem] to tame the silhouette__ best without cuff or stacking.

    Dude, this are awesome. You got the perfect fit. What size are this? (Just wondering because people say that 'you' should be careful when getting PBJ because of the thighs.)

    Is Indigo water soluble? Maybe it just goes deeper into the cotton or makes it stick harder (hot wash I mean.)

    ^^ as in, they are likely to favor or adhere to a more faithful reproduction__ e.g., 501 '27, '37, '44, '47, '55, '66, etc.

    Is there a secret besides "wear them hard" to getting these types of fades!? Amazing! Very pronounce whiskers. Wonderful.

    Should I wash them yet?

    Hi everyone...

    these are my grim tim dry dirt organic's... I've had them for just over 8 months... they have had a fair bit of wear, probably an average of around 48 - 72hrs/week, maybe more.

    here are some photos of what they look like, i'm just wondering if i could have some advice on whether to wash them or not... the knees are so blown out and around the crotch gathers when i'm standing, as you can see in the photos.

    I'm itching to wash them to see what they'll look like, but if you guys reckon i should leave them, then i will.

    thanks a lot.
