    That kinda suck tillman, but I don't think it is TOO noticeable especially when they are going to crease.

    Here is an update from me of my Samurai S500JX-LRs they are about 3.5-4 months in. So far I must say the RHT is fading more so than the LHT. You can see in the photos what I mean.

    Vertical fading I am seeing no difference. LHT is brighter though, but other than that it is the same. But if you look at the front of my jeans you will see that there are 3 faded lines running almost diagonally (thigh crease fades?). While the RHT side is showing 3 different spots, the LHT side is barely showing one.

    Ok, well I did an update a short while back, but I love them enough to update them again.

    Here is an example how faded they are, but what I mean is that this is accurate at how faded they are, the second picture is accurate with the color, but they are more bright in real life (ie. 1st pic).

    Thanks kayodic :)

    As for the jeans I have to credit the intense summer heat for the amount of fading going on. I gotta admit I love these though, they ate finally starting to fade really nicely. Start wearing your samurais again!

    Looking really good already. Straight towards a vintage fading... Is the colour true to reality? They looked much darker before the wash.

    Ok, a mini-update of the combs.

    Finally starting to come through! Unfortunately the hem is starting to rip a little (at the bottom of the cuff at the hem).

    Washed my Sams again. They were all nasty from the summer, dirty on the outside sweaty on the inside. Yuck. Approximately 4 months on them so far. 3rd wash. These are alongside my 5-day old elements.

    It must be superhot there.


    And how about an Elemental contest?
    You have the Earth
    I know somebody with an Wind

    Al we need for the rest is a Void and a Fire element

    Hahaha, thats what I said! It actually isn't that hot here, but I do walk 2 miles a day (or at least for another week) since I have drivers ed and I have to walk to the school which is about a mile away (back and forth).

    If you wanna start a thread on it I am for it. I will x-post it on SuFu if you want (unless you have an account). I know someone on SuFu has the fires but they are about 7 or so months old and faded so it wouldn't really mean that much then.

    After a few washes (3 or 4 times, didn't notice), my Samurai fit is getting more and more conform to the thigh. Update fit from last wash, not a WAYWT pic, but more of a fit pic.

    Really love the way it turned out through these months :)

    Took these photos actually quite a while ago.. My 666ODs have been getting all the wear, but I put them back on today and took some more pictures.

    They are around ~4 months old now (actual wear).
