Hey so my nudies are gettin a little loose around the knee area, I was wondering how to soak my jeans. I see everyone sayin soak them but no specifics. Can anyone tell me how long to put them in hot water and do I use anything? like Woolite Dark or w.e its called.

Soak in salted water and use two cups of powdered detergent (it doesn't matter what you use). Using some vinegar keeps them from stretching too much especially since you're getting bulges.

i just picked up some Uniqlo UJ indigo selvedge s-002 denim a few days ago, I've been wearing them for about 2 days w/o soaking them, my question is, what happens if i dont soak at all to start them off? i like how they fit and dont want them to shrink. will not soaking them from the start make the fades come in extra slow?

i might just do a cold soak to soften em up a bit so that they dont blow out prematurely, what do you guys recommend?

i did a crotch soak for less chance of crotch blowout. i didnt soak any other parts.

I don't really know anything but Uniqlo raws, but if u like the fit and dont want them to shrink, then dont soak.

^ i just dont want them to blow out, so i might do the crotch soak only.

will not soaking affect the fading time?

Damn people. "How long do I soak for?" "How do I wash?" "What temperature?" "How do I touch them when wet?" "How do I dry?" "How long do I dry?"

It's simple:
Wear them as long as you can until you feel the need to wash. The fading process occurs when you wash them as the loose dye comes off. Just throw them in the washing machine and hang dry, or let them dry on your body, whichever floats your boat. The best and nicest looking jeans tend to be the ones where the owner doesnt give a shit, they just wore them. There's no formula to it, wear em, and wear them hard, and wash them. Simple as that. Fades will come as time goes on. Jeans reflect your lifestyle, so just wear the damn things and natural fades will come.

it really doesnt matter how you soak them, the importance is that you get the entire pant in there.

Just picked up some Rogue Territory Slim Straights. Can anyone help me out on sizing? The guys at the store didn't seem to know very much. I really liked the way 34s fit so I got 33s, also I would appreciate some guidance as far as if they need a soak before I start wearing them.

honestly bro, screw the wash cycle.
Wash if needed. If it was a little bit, shouldn't be a biggie, try to wipe it off gently.
if it was alot, go for the soak/wash.

you could wash with some woolite like i did. my jeans got some weird brown spots (not stains, they peel off so idk what they are lol) on the jeans but i just put them back in to rinse, maybe they'll be better. it kind of upsets me that my creases are gone now lol

i thought honey combs showed up from bending your leg because that's how the creases would really set in. but that's just from what i figured. anyway try biking or running a lot

Febreeze ftl. Some may be anti-bacterial, but all they do is cover up and meld with the stench that's already there. The grime doesn't go away either, so it'll continue to wear down the fibers at a higher rate.

just bought CM Autobahn Unwashed.. Usually wear 32/32 but it was 32/34 and it's a bit bigger on the waist.. and should i soak before wash? if so how long? i really don't want the skinny look and it's already pretty slim. Do you guys usually hem your jeans?

du, i puked on my apcs, got splashes of mud & mud water, slushie, pop and some food on it. all that up to 2 months of wear.
i ain't bragging, but all i did was wet the stained parts, took some tissue and fucking rubbed it off and then rewet it. Hang to dry. All smell was gone and stains were gone.

My mom washed my jeans the other day and now the inseam of one leg is shorter than the other. Is there anything I can do to fix it? The jeans also came out with weird crease marks, would regular wear rid these marks? Thanks

the creases will come out, but it will take a good week. or you can sleep with them one night... and the inseam will stay shorter cuz theres almost nothing you can do besides physically stretch them.
