    Why don't we have a sub-forum for these?

    I'm expecting a delivery of these today in the same waist size as my Grim Tims, but 36 leg instead of 32, for, hopefully, better stacks.

    I hope they fit alright...

    Yeah. I've been trying to get decent length stacks for years but longest I could get with being skinny was L32. Then I bought some Ironhearts at L36 and some TTs at L36.

    I'm only wearing mine on a rotation at the moment, but we can compare fades one day :)

    Absolutely, it's cool to have something different with a fit and I think those will fade well plus black denim is so effortless to style.:p:cool::cool:

    18 months on and 106 days of being worn: [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Very little wear though. Some whitening of the seams on the seat: [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A bit of wear near the button: [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And on the fly just below the button (not sure the camera picks this up very well at all): https://app.photobucket.com/u/ricca...b8ccc23-b0c9-45c5-be5a-26e18407b3ed?mode=zoom
    [​IMG]

    Annoyingly, there seems to be a weak area developing near the seam between the legs: https://app.photobucket.com/u/ricca...8b69e6e-8d06-45af-8f4d-e449ef584453?mode=zoom

    [​IMG]Due to this, I'm actually considering washing them!!! I don't think I'll be able to darn the stretch denim very easily as last time I tried darning stretch nudies the darning thread pulled tight and put ripples in the denim fabric. I must say I'm disappointed in the longevity of these jeans compared with my Pipe Leds and I think the lack of washing may have something to do with it.

    My Pipe Leds were washed once a week or a fortnight of wear, so my Tight Terrys would have have had at least 8 washes by now if treated equally. By comparison, however, the PLs were cycled in almost daily instead of only a few times for my TTs, and the PLs are so baggy I could easily take them off without unbuttoning: the strain on the fabric in this same location on my PLs must be intense and yet - and in spite of being secondhand when I bought them - and in spite of general fraying all around the top of the waistband, pockets etc etc, the PLs have probably having been worn for 200 days since I've owned them and are not yet in desperate need of repair. I can't see these TTs lasting that long if I continue not to wash them.

    So, having confessed to sacrilege... ;)

    They are looking great! The knees have broken in and they have developed a nice sheen to them that I think looks superb.

    I like the way the waist has stretched to the point where the zipper is not closed completely.;) Inspiring, I am loving the look so far.

    Yeah, the zip's always had a tendency to remain slightly low if I'm not careful how I close it. I guess a snug fit plus stretch fabric make this somewhat inevitable?

    Weirdly, the photo shots on the nudie website nearly all had the zip visible, for some reason, a few years ago. (Perhaps to show what colour zip was provided?) Someone on this forum once suggested it could be a nudie trademark to differentiate genuine nudies from fake ones. Almost certainly not true, but it might as well have been. :D Let's say it makes the look more 'casual'.
