LVC 47s and SC47s. Taken on a cloudy day with a p&s cam no flash.

LVC are 2+ years countless washes and soaks. Semi-retired until I go to SE and get them repaired





SC47s are owned for a year, but actual wear is ~8 months give or take. 1 initial soak, and this is right after the first wash.

The Unbranded Brand "skinny" indigo model after 28 straight days of wear. Planning on wearing them everyday for the entire 2011 year. Documenting the entire process on my blog: http://www.withoutwash.com

edit: photos edited, since i do not have these anymore and have sold them

1 year retired(by me anyways, i got 'fat')

I wore these indoors ONLY 12 hours a day, mostly sitting around. I wore them uncuffed, hence the wear at the hem. I sagged and wore them straight up. Seat/crotch section in the back shows sigh of possibly blowout if un-repaired. I washed them in the washer cold inside out at 8 months and at 12 months.

apc ns sz29, '3' down.



upper block photos in front and back, as i have since sold these ->

wanting to give em all a try.

so far i'd rank it by quality - IMP, NUDIE, APC

by fit - NUDIE, IMP, APC

next will probably be samurai's.

the 710s will be fuller than your previous 3, but are still tapered.

Man, I really honestly don't like the way faded Imps look. Guess it's just me, they seem mad popular on HB.

i'm lookin for something like the grim tim fit but a heavier denim. and hopefully a 34"+ inseam maybe just a TAD slimmer than the grims would be nice.

I totally agree. I have never seen anything special with Imperials whatsoever. They always seem like the entire pair turns into the same color wash, but there's no contrast. No hate, just my personal opinion.

the dukes i posted were a travesty. i had a bad night in them that i'd rather not get into but they had to be watched 2 times in a row about 2 months into the wearing..

so they shoudla faded a little better.

kindof serious but, what the hell do u guys do to get ur denim to fade so fast? ive had my pbjs for maybe 5 months and the fading process is comparable to people that are 3 weeks in. i think that i do a fair enough amount of walking in them so that they should fade a little more atleast lol

well for me.. with my APC's .. when i got them i wore them.. every fucking day. I was so stoked on them and they were nice jeans so I wore them 24/7.

then i got my Dukes after 1 year. I wore the Dukes 4 days a week at least and then the APCs.

Now i feel with my Nudies that my APCS will get barely any wear. and deservedly so because they are faded as shit and the back pockets rippin through.

^i wear my denim every day too cuz its the only pair of pants i have except for a pair of khakis. what im asking though is, what do u guys do to make ur denim fade so fast? am i missing some important technique to get super fast fadez.

i dont plan on copying someones daily routine just to get faster fades, but i do get kindof jealous lol.
