    Last update was about a month ago so I figured it was time for another one.

    Haven't been wearing too much lately :( But they are around 4.5 months now, I am going to try and get another month of wear or two before the contest ends. I took pictures today but they don't show the best example of how the color really looks irl. Took a ton of pictures though because this thread needs it! there needs to be more contribution! I did edit them in PS but for the most part they were really contrasty to begin with and I did as much as possible to make them look like how they look to my eye.

    This is how they really look:

    ^ Thanks!
    Almost everyday since the contest started January, except for a 1 to 2 weeks stoppages for rotation.
    Didn't do much, just deskjob, crafting and walking...daily life :)

    Thanks for your answer. But even if just used for daily wear desktop job you only need to have patience. And I'm sure they'll turn out great.

    My Denime contest jeans was worn the same way for 1 and half year constant wear at the office. But now they received nice strong fadings after one year of wear. Check out denim evolution on:

    Promising fadings. They have tons of life left. Let's see, how they'll look like in 1 and 2 years with some more updates later

    Here are my samurai S500JX-LR's most accurate pictures of them I've taken. They look exactly like this in real life.
