That time of year. Out bird hunting as many days are we can from the middle of October through Thanksgiving. Don’t wear my 1001 hunting though. I have an old pair of LVC 1922 501s for that. Need suspenders to hold my pants up while the chaps are trying to drag them down.
177 days in, will hit 180 days/six months before the end of the year. Was planning on give them a wash for New Years, but may let them go out to 200 days (it’s been just over 40 wears since their last wash). Tough getting decent pictures of these with just the iphone to work with, and horrible light with the dreary weather we’ve been having lately. Front side is pretty close to reality in good light, back side has more contrast than it looks.
I like the softer, subtle fading these are producing. More of an “adult” fade compared to the high contrast, artificial looking fade so many jeans produce.

This is after their sixth wash (counting the two initial washes). Going to cut back to 4 to 5 days of wear a week for the rest of the contest, and wash every three months. Want something still wearable 15 months from now.</span>
