18 months and one wash. And they came out beautifully. These Ormonds were bought a week after I washed my first pair of Harris jeans, but unlike Harris, I didn't wear them everyday. They just went into my jeans collection and I wore them maybe once a week. Now that they're washed, you can see the wear and tear much better. That's why I prefer starting with raw denim, as it's after the first wash, that you see the individuality in that pair of jeans.
Over the next couple of days I'll publish some photos of what they looked like when I bought them, what they looked like before the wash, and what they look like today.
