I shouldn't say this, but I can because I'm not a judge in this thing, if there are a better pair of faded jeans on the planet then I have not seen them. Incredible.
Made in England, clothed in Japan, fed in America and drunk in Belgium !

Awesome jeans you got there @fanya
You sure know how to fade jeans :) and to keep them intact. Really impressed that you have been able to keep them in such a great shape. No real "jeans hospital" treatment at all.
My jeans are most of the time in need of patching all over the place after a year of wear. Regardless of weight and cut :)

IH-76
IH 301s 07bk

I've worn these for approximately 21 out of the 24 months with pauses due only to hot weather and repairs.  I'm happy to report that they've finally faded a bit, but still much less than I expected.

The crotch has blown 3 times but otherwise they have held up very well.  I'll be entering them in the Last Man Standing contest.

HC-IH-62
IH-555-03

I'm sorry I haven't post in ages. This is the current state of my IH-555-03. I've washed them in the bathtub like 3 times and send them twice to The Works for crotch and flyloop repairs (Top notch service as I suspected). I couldn't wear them as much during weekdays because of my fecking job and to be completely honest because I have another 2 pairs in rotation (these are my favoritesthough). Still plenty of life in them which I guess is a positive thing, right? (just trying to consolate myself after checking out the state of some other contestants' jeans).

Shortened cross post of a few pictures from from the final submission thread. Can't believe two years went by so fast.

I have really enjoyed the IH Megabusters for the last two years. One initial soak and three or four washes. They have had a few crotch repairs, one hem reinforcement and new stitches for the top buttonhole.
