As I didnt want paint spots on the jeans. I threw them in the washer at once. So this is wash nr.6. They are still holding up extremely well. You can see that some dirt has really stuck to the jeans on the close up photos. Its a small brown tint event though they are coming straight from the washer.
Another update on the jeans. the fabric is getting a little thinner. And small holes has appeared around the right front pocket (mostly because of my phone). All my coins in the coin pocket has also made a nice hole, that I probably wont repair.
I have already repaired the hole on the right front pocket at the Nudie jeans repair shop here in Oslo.. You will see the repair on my next update.
Here is some before and after photos from the 7th wash.
So it is finally time for the last photos of the jeans.
It`s been hell of a ride and the jeans have gone through 8 washes, 1 job change, 1 new apartment, 6 weeks of backpacking in south america, trips to Paris, New York, London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Greece and Croatia. Lots of concerts, two music festivals and a lot of fun.
In my opinion the jeans held up really well for 2 years of wear 4-7 days a week.
Two crotch rips and a mobile phone hole that both got repaired by the Nudie jeans shop in Oslo. And some other holes and rips (coin pocket) that are yet to be repaired. I will keep wearing these jeans for many years since the evolution is not at all complete.
Hope you like the photos:
I will finish the post with two fit pics, unfortunately the fit pics came out very blue because of the light and does not do the jeans justice. They also look more carrot shaped than they really are. Thanks for two great years and a great competition. May the best jeans win.
