    That's how I got started with the whole pattern making and garment engineering business...

    Got some old linen and stapled all seams of my first pair of pants. From there I went straight to plastic bags that cut open only to glue them to form a trench oat - the rest is history.

    haha, i just read this thread for the first time. thanks for calling for me. my gt is slowly starting to fade, they´re suprisingly quite stubborn.
    think i´ve worn them for approximately 4 months, but don´t really know.
    guess i´ll just post some progress pics when time has come.

    Yeah, Matt, please do! In the meantime - I'm back from my business trip, I sweated like crazy so I fear I will have to do a gentle handwash later. Stay tuned.

    unfortunately I won't be able to enter yet, they're still too tight for me to wear (I guess i can't really complain since I got them for free)
    I'm also considering cutting off the back pocket stitching, it's a bit too much for my tastes

    the coin pocket has the same type of stitching which I will keep on the other hand

    ^more details please!

    My 888s are out of the tub, first handwash has been done - they bled a lot but also seem to have become darker again. Normally I wouldn't have washed that early, but two months of almost daily wear in the hottest months made it necessary.
    S5000VX 21 oz, worn only occasionally, maybe two weeks in total?!

    Looking forward to pictures. My S5000VX has found its way into my rotation, I think of wearing it 2-3 days per week, until it gets really cold. This means, the 888, that fade not rapidly fast, will beciome less and less wear over the next months :-(

    Nice fixie! I'm looking at a Fuji Feather at the moment to use at university and for around London.

    Will post pics of my APC PS for original fit and then will start wearing them on the 1st of October probably.

    Your APCs seem like a bit of a downgrade from SEXi14s, xEnvy - especially considering that the latter are pretty much a perfect fit.

    Then again, I still have a soft spot for Nudie and like their style a lot more than Dior, APC, N&F, and most of the other (relatively) inexpensive raw brands. It's quite possible I'll get another pair of TFDOEE someday.
