That's true and a good point, but if you're the type to just drop / sell your denim after less than a year rather than sticking with it or at the very least building up a good rotation, denim probably isn't the best hobby for you...

Some fade/smell differently
I baught a pair of Rugby back in January, and a Pair of PRPS in Feb. (relativly close) Havent washed them yet, but the Rugby's are starting to have a pretty cool fade, but they are starting to smell like butt sweat. The PRPS isnt fading that much, and doesent smell that bad. How should I wash them. And I got a pair of Selvedge from Lucky on sale for $50, was tht a good choice?

Kind of ironic how this thread has turned into a space to share washing tips.

That's subtle moderating, right there. ;-)

why does the care tag that comes in the back pocket of apc's say to not wash them for as long as possible?? Aren't you a bit old for this forum anyway?

ok... the better dyed your jeans the better they can handle washes... but even my sons levis stf dont fade too much in each wash... if you dont wash them after every time you wear them you should be fine.

when i wash, i wash em at the laundrymat in the machine on hot with scent free detergent. i always hang to dry

and me too old for this forum? just because youre young doesnt mean im too old.

That's a case study -- it's one fucking experiment with a single data point. Treating this as research is hilarious...

im saying you can get high contrast fades and still have clean jeans.



wash these about once a month.



these were washed every 3 weeks.

ive been on that "wash your jeans when they are dirty" shit since 06... still havent ruined a pair of jeans.


as statistics say, jeans can not get any dirtier after a couple months.

5 different kinds of bacteria and none are a health hazard!
Don't care what you say, you enjoy washing your jeans once a week or once a month, we'd prefer to get higher contrast fades.

^read the posts above you, your argument is invalid. i know the guy, he just walks around in them shits, and for more than half a year we're at -30C and below. bacteria aint gunna cultivate in that shit anyway.

holding out on washing your jeans aint gonna do shit for fades or contrast if all you do is fucking walk around in them.

you people do what you want, but holding out on washes/fades dont do ANYTHING for fades/contrast if you just going to walk around and sit in them.

I think okbro's mad that he lived with shitstains all over his couch / bed / car seats and has bacterial rashes all over his groin because he didn't wash his APCs for 3 years and the difference between his pair and the pair of the dude next door that washed once a month is 0.1%

wear your fucking jeans
just because you buy raw denim doesn't mean your obligated to fade them nicely.
wear them and forget that you dropped a whole paycheck on them.
