lol i was about to post acetone too. just googled it and it seems that it *could* work, but it might damage the denim, im not sure. if you're willing to try acetone on em though then maybe see how it affects the denim on some spot you can't really see so if it doesn't mess it up then you could just apply the acetone to the glue

Word I read on that too. I might buy real acetone from home depot. I tried nail polish remover that is supposed to contain acetone and that stuff didnt do crap.

Picked up some Nudie SJDJ last year on sale. Never tried to wear 'em until yesterday. Problem is I lost about 10 pounds since last year.. They are 33x32 and now I am about a 31. Do you think a hot soak is enough to bring them down to my size? Should I just hot soak for 30 mins and wear them while they dry? I've been wearing raw for a few years but I never had to soak in order to shrink. I'm worried they wont shrink enough and I won't be able to resell them for shit..

Thanks in advance y'all


you could just wear a belt

ask your tailor to take in the waist and the seat, thats what i did with my RRL's. they were a 38 and i got it taken into a 35.5-36. and they fit nicely now.

with the 501 stf, should I hot soak, or cold soak? What are the effects of either? Do they even have different effects on the denim?

The hotter the soak, the more the shrink. I'd suggest a hot soak right off the bat so that you aren't surprised by any more drastic shrinking later. You'll get a bit of color loss, but there'll be plenty left over.

To a point there is, but its not as noticeable, just do the hottest soak you can, so that you can get maximum shrinkage out of it as stated before.

501's STF

Soaked the upper part first to check if it would work correctly and it did. They shrunk a little. Then I soaked them fully in hot water for about 20 min. Let them dry out the whole day and yeah they fit nicely.

even if you cuff, it will still stain your kicks (though it is minimal compared to not cuffing).

how do you apply tape on the hem? wouldn't that look funny?

I've had these 501 shrink-to-fit for a year and they haven't had a wash, but they recently got a small stain caused by pancake mix and some bubble gum on the bottom. Should I jump in the shower with them on now or just throw them in the washing machine? They are indigo blue...or raw...whatever it's called, I don't want to lose that "shiny" lol. Also, what to do with regular 501s? Just throw them in the washing machine inside out? Are regular ok to throw in to the drying machine or should I hang dry those too? I don't like the idea of hang drying them because of the hot ass sun we get in Southern Cali.

I finally washed my just 501's after over a year of wear. The creases on the combs shifted though, but the fades came out a lot more.

Just got some regular 501s...no raw denim. How do I go about washing them? Should I wear them and take a shower or should I just throw them in the washing machine? Also, is it ok to throw regular jeans into the drying machine or should I hang dry those?

given they are rigid 501s, so it doesnt matter much, but generally u dont want to throw ur denim in the dryer because it'll soften denim

True. Hot water though? What would go wrong if I went with the label's suggestion to use cold? How do y'all dry your jeans? Hangline? How about Dickies work pants?

It's important to wash your jeans at least once a week. Like what I said, throw in the dryer to dry.

Once a week? Nah, shun, maybe if I wore them everyday and got 'em dirty, but I honestly can't find a point to wash 'em once a week in hot water. Just keep following your own schedule. cool
