ive never really been into denims. i wouldnt have considered myself "out" of them either.

but lately ive been browsing the denim forum
just reading.

and i find myself very interested. alot of these denims are extremely amazing. in fit and quality.

i run across a few threads that dont go into detail but do discuss stretching, shrinking, soaking, starching ect.

can somebody elaborate on these. summarize
anything that will help a denim noob.

id like to try a few of these techs to some denims i currently own.

put them on. unless ur getting sugarcanes or another japanese brand (or levi stf) their pre sunk and dont require any type of soak or whatever. just dont wash them until u like how they look. its actually pretty simple, if u had some stf's u would know it, inseams of over 37 in and just goofy fit.

he can wash them whenever he feels like it.

its really simple.

wear the damn things and you will see things happen to them.

soaking takes out starch, dye, smell, and it shrinks it in the beginning.
fading is obviously the fading of the denim, crotch, honeycombs(behind the knees) by the knees, wallet pocket and anywhere else.
my advice is just wear the damn things and see waht happens. dont purposely wack em but live in the moment sort of thing. and see waht happens. see what happens...man i cant sleep. lol

why would you put a tin can in your pocket?..

anyways.. Loadedpencil, starch makes your jeans stiffer. I generally don't touch it. People on the ranch just wore them, and their jeans were beautiful.

cause your pants would be more comfortable and normal without it. No sense in carrying something with no use on you.

or you could use smokeless tobacco, instead of faking it with lip balm/being a tool
