Does anybody know how to make pants/jeans attract less crap? I have a pair of H&M Black pants they're 98% cotton and 2% elastin and I always have to use a roller to get white fibers and crap off of them. Maybe a spray of some sort? I've seen something about DIY black wax coating denim and maybe something similar would help but I don't want the waxed look.

Any help would be appreciated.

i have just bought some hugo boss jeans

they are black but not raw jeans i dont think, they are a little baggy so what do i do to shrink them to the size i want?

its comfort fit instead of my usual regular fit tongueface
Jan 02, 2010 @ 09:27

Jan 02, 2010 @ 09:34

i'm not sure if it's in here but i have some RRL slims.

How long of ACTUAL wear time should i wait until i wash/soak/whatever. i have a school uniform so i only get to wear them during the weekends and when school is out.

^ wear em out as much as you possibly can, usually people wash em after around 6 months of wear, which would be about 180 days of wear. Depends on how you wear your denim also, whether or not you do hard work in em or bike in them or just wear them casually.

i heard there was a way to "reset" your stacks? my cuffs/ankles are looking like graybill status
Jan 07, 2010 @ 20:25
if I soak my 9 months old jeans would they lose all the stacks,whiskers, etc?
Jan 09, 2010 @ 17:11
^ no, unless they're unsanforized denim that wasn't initially soaked before u started wearing em for those 9 months. If they were soaked initially, then u should be fine and the fading on the stacks and whiskers will remain in place.

I would resoak and then when they're moderately damp wear them and try to arrange them to what you want.

For pants, get dickies or have some lint rollers handy. Or scotch tape if you're felling ghetto...
Jan 29, 2010 @ 18:35
BTW, which starch do you recommend for my twice washed jeans. I want to re-live the crisp feeling without buying a new pair blushing
