October 12 2007

A detailed shot was taken to catalog the wear up to this point. Being an occasional biker, the seat of the jeans is a heavy traffic area.

October 1 2007

October 1st concludes the first month of the contest, and I took my first set of monthly evolution pictures. Further down the line, these monthly shots are taken outdoors in natural sunlight to provide a more accurate depiction of color and wear.

A commonality with this particular Texas-made denim -- the "raw" dark navy blue color quickly gives way to a slightly lighter, much more vibrant blue hiding just beneath the surface. This can be seen at points of stress or constant abrasion, such as the lap whiskers, knee honeycombs, and creasing stacks at the bottom of the hem.

This contrast in color can be seen better at an angle. It is subtle.
