For the money , Wrangler are the hardest wearing jean. And while they are synthetic dyed, with hot washes that electric blue tames quite a bit. Anytime I see an individual wearing a great pair of jeans 85% of the time they are wrangler 936 DEN or 13MWZ.   Rustler , a wrangler brand are also pretty incredible in terms of work jeans.

And if we are talking about work clothing, yes it’s supposed to be durable but the garments we admire (Levi’s ,...) were all mass produced at scale and not made to last forever.

I think it’s great you’re putting these through their paces Shred. At the end of the day , yes they are nice pants , but they are pants and the purpose of pants is to be worn .

at the risk of a bit of a derail
il....ive been a carpenter for 10+ years and have tried alot of different pants in search of the most hard wearing. i really dislike denim for work i find it doesnt move well enough sometimes. i found that nothing beats an old pair of stiff crunchy carharts but the fabric has gotten really soft in recent years and they just dont hold up except the ones they started making in the USA agin( the black dyed version actually gets a very cool bluish fade after some wear). there is a tree climbing clothing company called arbor wear they can really take a beating they just lack a hammer loop which can be annoying.

So I've had a pair of Roy's White Oak Memorial jeans hanging in my closet since 2nd Hand Revival & have been waiting for the right time to soak & start wearing them. That time came today on Seacliff Beach on the Central California coast. 



It's been quite a few years since I've swam in the ocean & I must say it was quite pleasant. The water was cold & it reminded me of my childhood days on the local English beaches (Calshot & Lepe).

Getting back to the Roys, since I had opted to go for a smaller size I was a bit nervous that I'd be strangled from the waist down after a few minutes in the water. Everything worked out fine, however, & the shrinkage was not excessive. In fact i think I've ended up with a very respectable fit. I managed to wear them wet for a couple of hours, sitting on a towel in the van to keep the indigo bleed from staining the seat. Below are some fit pics, semi dry.

Who doesn't love a nice seaside vista?

Thank goodness nobody has thought to make a pair of tiny Speedos in selvage denim. The vistas would be particularly troublesome for residents of chilly coastlines, where extreme shrinkage is chronic.

@Maynard, Yes! Despite my total lack of acting experience I've been hoping they'll consider me for the new 'Bond'...(That is Daniel Craig, right?).

Great fit Carl! I also shrank my R01's this weekend. It has been a hot weekend here so it was a perfect time for wearing them until dry. I was also worried that the waist would shrink too much but it was in fact quite minimal. Otherwise I still might have to take an inch or so from the inseam. My overall fit is still more loose than yours.
Too much Denim - too little time...
