    wore these for about 8 months solid
    one soak, one sea wash, one hurricane soak (tied them to a pole during hurricane sandy) and one machine wash


    lighting kinda sucks, but color is fairly accurate

    Gave my RRDs a wash. These and 2 other RR pairs have straight legs. I find that a good thing, but shouldn't RR be slightly bootcut? Anyway i think they are coming together nicely. What do you think?

    @dave523 : Great pair, especially the front side including that purple purple, but also the natural honeycombs and back

    @INC365: Ooh, they've been forgotten for 3 years? Poor jeans, haha. I like the front, it's great.

    Long time no post. Before I washed my RRDS for the 3rd time, they're nearly 4 years old now but I don't wear them so much as I find them a little on the snug side. I did some more darning repairs by hand after the wash and am considering taking them in to a tailors to get more extensive reinforcements in the crotch and maybe under the pockets.

    Here's the post-wash photos I just took, they haven't been worn since. Some detail shots of the newest darning too. No colour effects, just as shot on my iPhone.

    Is this post still alive? Figured I'd post my denim...

    New to the forums, but have been following denim for a year or two now. Went through damn near all the pages of this post! Great shots of numerous types of denim.

    Slim Jim Organic Dry Broken Twill, ~7 months wear.
