    Hi guys and fellow denim loves.

    The wonderful MaxPower and me had a lot of talk about Samurai Jeans and a possible contest. What started as a little idea about a 1 on 1 duell ended in the big idea of having a major contest!

    Inspired by the first Sufu contest ever, we see this contest as a homage to the infamous Samurai Denim Contest which coincidentally started nearly 5 years ago.

    As a little reminder, the old contest thread and result thread:
    Contest Thread
    Result Thread


    That is why we have also choosen the...

    Some may ask why we took the same jeans. Well, let me name some reason:

    1. As an homage, we wanted to have the same model
    2. As the denim has slightly changed over the years (from my observation) it would be great if we can really see a difference
    3. The S0500 cut is very versatile and can be worn slim, straight and oversized
    4. As we all are "experts" now when it comes to Japanese denim, can we do better than the folks 5 years ago
    5. ...
    and so on and so on and so on...just name some more



    Start date
    The old contest started on October the 31th, 2006. So we aiming for the same date but we are a bit flexible and this can be discussed.
    Duration has still to be decided. 12, 15, 18 or 24 months


    Price and Prizes
    We are in contact with a sponsor, that already signaled willingness to shell out a prize and possibly gives a discount. But things are not set yet.


    Customization
    As the S0500XX is a standard model and our timetable (as it is now) is rather tight, there aren't any major customization planned. But we will try to get some goodies or such.


    Rules
    - We want the good, old "soaking-with-newspaper-and-tags-attached"-pics
    - Monthly updates at least to stay in the contest
    - No alterations except hemming
    - Judging has still to be decided (sponsor or open poll or both)


    So...do YOU want a pair of jeans that could look like this?!

    This will be the main attraction contest on SuFu and in the denim world in 2012 (I promise). So, don't hesitate to apply if you're seriously interested.

    As promised, some pics. The close-ups you will see below are from my Lot.12 S0510XX. I wore the pair the last 2 days and I have to say, that I "learned" to love the less irregular denim on it. Of course the Lot.11 is more "exciting" and you are forced to touch it every second. But the Lot.12 has also a very nice feel to it.

    Still a hairy bitch

    And that are those bumps the Lot.11 is full of. Lot.12 only has some of it

    And such irregularities

    Ah, thank you! I'll need to do a bit of reading on the sizes, but I suspect I'm 28/29? I'll let you know for sure a little later though. And my SuFu account is just "keetner" - though I don't use it much.

    yea, i got it by way of hippo [here @MN]. i don't have access to SuFu @my apt, so i seldom log in. anyway, being invited to compete with the SuFu allstar is a great honor. tnx for the consideration, but i had to beg off. borrowing an apt, wise, & honest word to describe [from cameland], it can be "overwhelming" sometimes. i need time to enjoy [the experience] on each pair.

    Boy I really would love to have participated! But, I donated my spot to cheap (ie. Faptronic), so he would have the joy of competing and I don't even need another pair of jeans, I just would rather save up for a lens right now. But I do thank you very much (both Max and B_f) for the invite! I will be following the thread though.
