H&M Sliq Denim

ah finals are over.

here are some of my favorite pants from last year. H&M Sliq fit jeans, wore them for about 5 months, with monthly washes. manly bike rides. and work. retired cuz i don't want my wallet to fall out.

the back pockets are to close together for me. my wallet was rubbing on my bike saddle and made a fatty hole, and these i got on sale for like 20 buck or something, so not worth a 20+ dollar repair. so if you ride a bike. DON'T BUY THESE. waste of money, but they are rather comfortable.

check some pics

this is what happens when designers put the pockets to close together, then i ride a bike with them.

527's going to bed now.

well, since there's no real reason to post anything new on my 501 STF's i'll just post some pictures of my last pair of jeans that wore.

Levi 527's got them in May '08, had some "light whiskering" as Levi puts it on there website, but i out faded them. check out some pix. wore these about 5 times a week for the first 3 months and washed them once a month. from august to the begining of november wore them everyday without washing. riding my bike about 10 miles a day, sleeping in hostels, cars, couches, i was homeless again. either way some sick fades happened over the the already existing "whiskering."

Denim: Week 1

well been wearing my 501's for 5 days straight, taking them off only for showers. i even sleep in these things.

here are some pictures.

marked for the first day of wear. hella rigid at first, damn near uncomfortable.

strange shine right above the back right pocket... hand rub from getting my wallet? idunno, but looks cool kinda. honeycombs.

so that's 5 days straight, with sleeping in them most night. they are starting to feel good and still pretty rigid. more in a few days.
