Received news from Mr. Trynka that the contest jeans were shipped 2 to 3 days ago from Roy.
Hoping we’ll get them soon!
Here’s a mini update on my unofficial contest belt for the Roy x Cone contest made by Scott.
Natural vegetable tanned double-horse butt (total 17.5 oz) – the finest of what Horween has to offer 🙂
Been trying to get it ready for New Years when the contest will start.
I’ve tanned it gently in the sunlight for a couple of days, and have applied 2 layers of horse oil and 1 layer of beeswax on both sides.
The leather has darkened slightly (was white/pink when new), and the classic horsehide grain appearance is popping up……like little, dark pieces of triangles/squares on a lighter background):
Should be good to go come 00:01 on the 01/01/11.
Haven’t been this excited and curious about a pair of jeans for a long time – reminds me of my first pair of Sugar Cane’s.
