When you guys make a new denim. Do you pre distress it. So you can see how it will fade?

No.

I try and wear it, but that only usually gives me 6 months of wear before we release it.

That is why, when people ask how a new denim will fade, the answer is often "tell you in a few months"

Is the orange bag for something specific or just a friendly little gift? :)
A shopping bag....

So do dyeing methods give you a slight idea?

for those of us who work in an office that has "casual Friday", or now with the pandemic "casual everyday", a nice pair of jeans kept clean is much easier than wearing the same ones we were at the ranch with or in the yard with.

This is why I’m such a big proponent of the Superblack non-fade denim. Especially the 9666Z’s which have a black patch and black W. I can get away with wearing them at work.

I was watching a product review by James Dant and he referred to the iconic red stitching as an “E”. I’ve always thought of it as a rotated “W” has homage to Triple Works. What’s the history and meaning of this logo?

It’s a W that stands for Works Inc, the iron heart parent company. Or it can be an M for Motorcycle if you like..

It’s definitely not an E. He once described the 21OZ denim as having a brown weft. I told him it didn’t,so he changed it to beige. I didn’t think it was my place to fight him on that.    "101E2D58-78FD-40DD-A0E1-A73AE2DEAEAB.jpeg"

Both make sense.  Thanks for clarifying.
