    i've gotten tired of the shine after a year. i just washed them on hot with organic fabric cleaner and they came out really nice. you can't really see much wear from the before pictures, but it's there. i'll put up some post-wash pics tomorrow

    my friend has a pair of ultra indigo coated finns that he's washed alot of times now since he started bmxing in them.

    they actually look pretty good. there isnt much whiskering or combs but hes taken a few falls and that in them and the wear from that is really noticable on them.
    if i ever get a chance to get a picture of them i'll post them up

    edit: ^nice looking forward to it snozepp

    Curious as to if I could get some opinions on my AJDHs. They are 2 days short of 6 months. I'm debating on going for a year on them, but I don't know if it will do much good, and actually, I'm wondering if it will do more harm than good. There are some things I am a little worried about.
    Here they are, no wash, no soak, just wear:
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And this is what I'm worried about:
    First, under the back pockets, I have these weird lines of fade and wear.

    Second, I have a few of these little rips on my pants. most of them are in lines, and three of them are right next to the seam. near the bottom of the leg. I don't know if I just just ignore it or do something about it.

    Those look really good, Bounce. Definitely some nice fading for the dry heavy denim. As for repairing, that's always up to you. I wouldn't be concerned about the line under the ass, as that's not likely to be something that'll change after a wash. Also, if the little tears are in the stacks, I don't see where they're something that you'd really have to worry about either. However, if you wanted to do something about them, you could always sew in a patch without washing the jeans.

    If you reinforce that crotch area when you buy them it will stay good as new for a year plus. Use fabric glue to take down the seams and if you want small patches in the groin area(it's unnoticable.) Ill have to post a pic of mine.

    Cool cool, I was just worried that the tears near the seams would come apart in the wash, and in turn unravel the the whole leg. As for the lines on the ass, they look kind of like... reverse whiskers, I don't know. I just hope they don't tear any more than they already have.

    Many of the worn in jeans here at mynudies show similar lines under the backpockets. Thats only because its creases a little where the ass ends. Have a look at my SJDJ 2 pages back and see it too.

    Go for another 6 months if you can bounce, you'll be glad you did. My buddy had a pair of Dry Heavy and they were quite stubborn to fade, but he wore then HARD for a like 13 months and they became awesome.

    No need to worry about repairs. Repair it when if busts open or when you need to.

    Wash it if you want, I would say hold out.

    Thanks for all the opinions. I think I'll commit to another three months (bringing it to nine total) and then see if I want to go the full year.
    My logic at that point will be "Well, I've already come this far." :)

    SEXI04 (1 yr ++)

    As promised, post dry clean SEXI04.

    Washing details : 2 dry cleans, 2 cold washes, 2 cold soaks.

    The second dry clean kinda screwed up the leather patch, it got harder and now it has some kinda black spots on top :evil:

    RR at 2 years and 10 months

    Pics don't really do justice, contrast irl much greater. The jeans causes a dilemma. I should start wearing a new pair of dry jeans, but it takes so long before the start looking any good. On the other hand my RR's start to wear pretty quickly so if i wear them a lot (which i do because they are the most comfortable jeans ever now) they will not last very long. Would like to keep 'em in the current condition as long as possible. What would you guy's do?
