you know how it says wear for 6 months before washing
would it be better for 180 wears before washing?
blah blah blah. this is a progress thread and 3 days is not progress, period. posting a 3-day progress pic is flat out assinine and nothing you say will change my mind on that matter.
starting fit threads is fine since we are trying to build a database here of how different jeans look and fit, and eventually it would be nice to see one thread for each brand in which sizing q's and fit pics can be addressed.
artificialwings - sorry if you took that personally, but i am trying to nip a potential serious problem in the bud. the point of a progress thread is to create a large, searchable database of different jeans so that in the future members can search it and see how different pairs can potentially turn out and evolve. its only a few pages long right now, but i already see a problem of people wanting to post "progress" pics when their jeans are showing no "progress" to speak of. posting brand newish or week old jeans in a progress thread is more or less threadcrapping in my eyes, as you are clogging up what is intended to be a useful recource with useless information. maybe you just don't understand the concept of a progress thread or what is to be accomplished by such a thread, but for reference we are aiming for something like this:
The Evolution of Jeans: Pictures, Scones and Tea - superfuture :: supertalk
we will never be able to build something like that on this forum if everyone who is running out and buying dry denim continues to shit up the thread with almost new jeans. forgive me for trying to protect the integrity of this thread.
i would also like to add that while i may have been rude in the way i went about stating my thoughts, i don't think in any way that it merited a personal attack such as the one you posted in response. i find it quite contradictory that you would make the argument that you do yet take it to the level of a personal attack over the internet based purely on assumptions about someone/thing that you have never met and know nothing about. call me an asshole if you want, but you have never and will never see me insult others in the way you did to me.
