Second part of the update!
Let’s get a bit closer…
Yep, that’s from my coin pouch – the fading outline the features of the pouch quite nicely.
The kangaroo lacing is eating through the fabric slowly but surely:
Another leather related fade – belt loop abrasion around 5 mm below the bar-tackings, evidencing my habit of wearing thick leather belts:
More preference for frequent washing is beginning to see some results too – for example, wrinkling along the waist band:
Or the train-tracking along the out-seam:
And the strongly ridged hem – impossible if the denim isn’t washed frequently:
The cinch-back is holding true, and where the denim has been hidden you can see glimpses of the original texture & colour of the fabric.
It’s been a while since I had a close look at the hardware – looking not too bad at all 😉
The duck pockets are coming along nicely – their evolution has somewhat exceeded my expectations.
It would be fantastic to have a pair of pants made in this duck fabric!
Roy’s shell-stitching still as good as new 🙂
Thick and sturdy, my initial fears of them unravelling have been proven wrong.
Guess what? More to come!
Update part III coming soon~
