(Thanks to LazyS and Mr Randal for the artwork!)


With the jeans arriving over the next few days, I figure it's time for a new thread and a quick look at how this contest came about.

Mr Randal originally suggested the idea in July of 2013, which developed into a conversation among forum members about details for a pant, then voting on potential makers for the project.  The chosen maker is none other than Russell Shurtz of Circle-A Brand:








Circle-A is Russell's one-man brand operating out of Asheville, NC.  He's made many amazing custom and one-off garments and Circle-A looks to be among the most exciting repro-inspired brands around.  His past and ongoing works can be seen at his blog here:


The final design and details for the dunagrees were all hashed out here on the forum, drawing inspiration from military, CCC, and workwear history from mainly around the 1930s, with participation from Russell as well as forum members to create a unique jean and a unique type of collaboration.  Forum members were encouraged to bicker over denim choice, thread color, button style, hem width and more, in a glorious spectacle of denim nerd joy.











The full list of D33 owners is:

1        maxamillion's lady
2        mandel9000     
3        illumin8em      
4        hollows 
5        mr randal       
6        ThisSunday      
7        Kproject    
8        almostnice      
9        lazyS  
10      maxamillionmose
11      lefty   
12      tg76    
13      xallanx 
14      geL     
15      breeze  
16      theinvisiblehand       
17      topgearskin     
18      skoundrel
19      russell 

The contest will run for a year (ending in the Ides of May 2015, and a few weeks later for those outside the US), and the winner will be chosen by an expert panel...

Celebrity judges for the D-33 contest will be:

Russell Shurtz (Circle A Brand)

Roy Slaper (ROY)

Ryan Martin (WH Ranch Dungarees)


Judging will be based on each contestant's dungarees, as well as their participation and documentation over the course of the contest.

For prizes, Russell will be offering a tote and tee, Mr Randal will be providing an item from the Denimbruin Look Book Strategic Reserves, and I'll be throwing in some Hollows Leather goodies, probably ~$150 value of custom leatherwork.

Thanks for posting everyone. Is that a tool pocket on the front of the thigh breeze?

What you see on Breeze's photo is a small pouch that Russell included along with the pants. It's not attached to the dungarees. Mine has some denim scraps and a bobbin in it. I imagine others will have the same.

hehe I did ask him to include some denim scraps for me as I will need to for future repair. Didn't know he was going to make a pouch for us. That is a nice touch.

Some more fresh-out-of-the-box pictures:












Hoping to get fit pics today if I can.  I gave my pair a warm soak just to wake up the fabric, they're hanging now but it's getting late in the day and they're still damp, so photos might have to wait until tomorrow.

Also looks like we've got a number of different instagram hashtags going, suppose we should pick an "official" one.
