Here is one of my favourite Levi’s 501XX 1966 model wearing to work. Hasn’t been washing since a year ago, so far he has no odour. Light weight denim with the tapered silhouette. Worn since 2009. 7 years 10 months old. Size 30/32. 9 washes. Hand-painted NASA “Spacewalk of Gemini”. Not forgetting my beloved trucker jacket from my late father.
Slope climbing with my buddy. It’s fun as long as don’t trip into a pot hole! And I spotted a small snake actually 😦 OK the jeans…Whiskers and honeycombs are prominent now I guess because I’ve been holding back washing my buddy hahaha ///1 soak 1 wash///size 31///worn 5days/week
Hey my semi retired buddy is 4 years 9 months old. Only wear it on weekends now.If you are first time reading this, I wore it everyday faithfully for the first 2 years, followed by 5 days/week ritual. Ceased washing after the 9th wash. It seems to age by itself actually….like vintage wine. Sometimes I do let him wind dry near window. One day I shall frame it like an art piece 🙂
Size 31/34.1 soak 9 washes. Made in Kojima/Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan. View photo album on Facebook
Time passes so fast. 2 more months and my dear buddy will be 4 years old. I haven’t take further distress on BMX. I think knee-rip could be worsen then 😦
For the record: 1 soak 9 washes. Size 31/34. I took this picture on the pavement of a office tower. The grey floor tiles really compliment the indigo.
