great to see that after 2 years my preferences are quite the same
God damn, I want a pair of Iron Hearts.
Here is my list as of now:
IH (any slim model overdyed)
IH Riders Jacket in indigo
Pretty much what I really really want right now. Even though I have 2 pairs in rotation, I would add in a pair of Iron Hearts any day but because my main pair is just my samurai S500's they wouldn't get as much wear as them.
It seems as if I got two new pairs coming to daddy:
- LVC WW II (worn in, but life left, and in the very seldom 38 inseam (33*38)) Can't pass out on this one.
- Stronghold Straight Leg River Wash (unworn) and fitting pretty much perfect. And with a great slubby structure.
Thought I'd be settled, but you know that I'm addicted. Still these are only backup pairs.
Priority: 1.) IH Contest Pair 2.) 0905 SP 3.) LVC 201
Might happen next week. Stay tuned.
I know that feeling. But my "denim-itch" became much less last half year. I haven´t even bought one pair of denim!!!
Lots of fun with your new pairs, Flo!
Here is an update:
Just a pair of 666's OD. Thats it.
How do you do it... I can barely break in the one pair that I have (especially since it's so damn hot right now).
He isn't breaking them ALL in haha, he is only breaking in his 3 main jeans. But even so, Nudies are slow as shit compared to the fading properties of Momotaro or Iron heart (not sure about LVC though). It is also higher quality, so somewhat easier to break in. When I had my high Kai's I wore them for approximately 2 weeks and they showed absolutely 0 signs of wear... My samurais with 2 weeks were showing a lot of wear. My nudie Slacker Jacks were worn for about 4 months by me, and they really didn't get that much drastic wear. Only thing they were showing was some thigh wear and whiskers.
Still, breaking in 3 pairs of jeans in the summertime is quite the task. I hardly wear denim this time of year.
^^ Hmm..so that's why more denim fans go towards japanese brands because of the fading properties, denim quality and such?? I must admit I have been wearing my nudies for like 4 months and still no sign of wear yet. Hate it when it looks completely new after putting so much effort into breaking them in.
It's not that easy. There are brands like Samurai and Flat Head that show fades pretty easy, but not all of them. LVCs take long to fade, also Momotaro are not known for super fast fading potential. But in my case it's pretty easy: I wear my Iron Hearts to work every day and all other time is spent in my Momos or LVCs. With approx. 80% in the Momos, the LVCs are my beach/work/floor-scrubbing-beat-the-shit-out-of-it pair. This makes me get fades in every pair. And it isn't that important anymore to me to get fades as I got enough faded pairs already, it just happens. I enjoy the structure and history of those jeans and I love to wear them.
The best advice as always is not to handle your jeans with care. And as Nudie makes a lot of organic denim lately - this made me also bite my teeth out, they nearly didn't fade in 5 months.
