Picked these up from AB Fits back in January. They were the last pair of R400Hs and I lucked out that they had them in my size. I put 28 wears into them before the competition.
This is at about 10 wears soon after I picked them up. After warm soaking 45 minutes and before hemming.
This is them at about 45 wears and after a hem.
These really softened up and are quite comfortable to wear now. Looking forward to how they progress over the competition.May 27, 2015 at 12:51 pm #4194

Great looking denim.June 11, 2015 at 5:20 pm #4566
I love red cloud. I own the r400 standard i actually got from max power a few years ago. I’d love to pick up the 425H but i know i’ll never find them now.June 27, 2015 at 5:18 pm #4801
Awesome, so glad someone has a pair of these in the contest. Have a pair that I wore for a good 8 months and love the way they fade. The hemp addition seems to give it a yellowish tint to it. Look forward to seeing yours progress.July 9, 2015 at 5:46 am #4992
@Brad I think I stumbled upon your progress pics on reddit before getting these. They looked like they were coming along well. Any reason you stopped wearing them?
@Corey I was shocked when I found these sitting right in AB Fits. Didn’t even realized they carried them. Maybe keep an eye on Ebay and Grailed.
@Remco Awesome I’ll keep an eye on your posts
July check in. Planning to check in every 2 months. Loving wearing these. Lots of room in the thighs for comfort and they breathe very well; they’re not smelling at all. The hemp might also have something to do with that. No washes or soaks after the initial soak. Likely going to wait until the 6 month mark to go for a bit of contrast fading.July 10, 2015 at 1:25 am #4996
Have a nice crotch blow out that is making it’s way up front, where I have one of the whiskers blowing out. Need to send them off for some repairs, as they’re to good to have them sitting idle.April 11, 2016 at 12:27 am #6804
I said I would checkin every 2 months and here I am 9 months after my last post 😛 I thought the 1 year mark would make a nice milestone. I’ve been wearing these almost everyday since the contest started. I bike to work in them 4 – 5 days a week but other then that I’m mostly sitting at a desk job so the fades come slowly. They’re getting machine washed about every 2 months.
I’ve really enjoyed wearing these. They have the right amount of slim without being too restrictive. I still find myself getting caught up in the details when looking at them.

1 year and 8 months update. Washed in the washing machine at about the 6 month mark and then roughly every 2 months after that which adds up to about 8 or 9 washes total. No repairs.
