For 6 months, Gordon and Renee from Denim Therapy are wearing raw denim jeans everyday, and documenting their experience on our Tumblr. Every Friday you can follow their progress here on the DT blog (see last weeks article here). For week 11, Gordon and Renee decided to take some close up of their jeans to show you exactly how they’ve been aging.
Gordon (jeans pictured above): My Nudies are really starting to contour to my body, they are becoming my second skin. As the jeans have stretched in the knees and hips, I have gained much more move ability. Up to now I’ve only been getting creases, the only fading has been on my wallet pocket. But lately, I’ve been getting some good fading around the front of the knees and bum area.
Renee (jeans pictured above): I love Gordon’s wallet fade in his back pocket. Most men’s jeans get a lovely fade in that area from wear, and as a result we repair lots of back pockets at Denim Therapy. On my Jean Shop jeans, you ca see some creasing happening below the back pockets, and some color fading happenning along the seams and pocket corners. The back of my knees have some nice honeycombing going on. It’s nice that my color has not faded very much with wear, or bled all over the place as many brands of raw often do.
Don’t forget to check out our Tumblr for daily pictures and see how we’ve been wearing our jeans!
