Last April, I set out to get a pair of cheap jeans that could last me a long time. After a bit of looking, I decided upon the UB101, or Unbranded Skinny. I went up a size for no real reason, ending up with a 29. I wore them almost every day (and night) for a year, only switching to other jeans if these were being repaired.
Here they are at 6 months, all pictures taken with a terrible camera. Please excuse how awful they look
Then, some pictures at 10 months. Again, I'm not the best photographer, but these are slightly better. There are a lot, so I figured album grouping would be best.
And lastly, one year. I went to Iceland last week and spent some time in front of Geysir. After about an hour of getting drenched by the geysers in the area, I drove back to the hotel and rinsed them off in the shower to get rid of the nasty sulfur smell.
Two days later, however, I climbed up Sn?fellsj?kull. Going up wasn't an issue, but going down, I slid on my butt for a good 50 feet and left a nice streak of indigo in the ice...
Well, here they are after all that:
Two patches in the knees, two patches in the crotch, and a repaired back pocket blowout. One year of wear, and that Gersir/shower wash/soak. Hope you enjoy!
