got stuck in the pouring rain today for about 15-20 minutes and soaked all of my clothes. so my APC's, worn for about 7 months, got soaked along with them. should i just wash them now or should i let them dry and wear them out more?


So fuck? Its just a bit of rain.. Youre talking about jeans not a 3000 year old priceless chinese porcelain vase..

What exactly do soaks and washes do in regards to fades?
Like what would be the effect of a soak and/or wash with no fades, just starting fades, and lots of fades?

^either embrace it or wash it...you don't have many options lol

Just scrub it out, you will lose indigo but it won't be noticeable

I've had my pair of Ironheart 21oz 301S for almost a year and half now. I made a tutorial on how I washed it the first time here:



This is just one of many ways though. Hope you guys enjoy!

Question re: when to repair crotch

(1) APC New Standard, 2 years old
(2) Beginning to see wear/thinning fabric around crotch area, but no holes
(3) Should I bring them to be reinforced/darned ASAP, or wait until a hole appears?
(4) Anyone know any good, reputable places for jean repair in Toronto?

Please see attached images below:





Also, what to do with that stray yarn?

Thanks

They did, soaking = shrinking. Cold soak=minimize shirnking.

Just got my first pair of raws... The guy at Self Edge said 3sixteen's don't need to be soaked prior to wearing. Anybody agree with this or should I soak 'em?

There's no need to soak. Explain to me why you need to ALWAYS pre soak?? It's personal preference. But you DON'T need to.

Just wear them and wash when ever they need it.

DONTGIVEAFUCK, just wear them. No need to wash unless they stink. I mean they pretty much just had a soak so need for 2nd

stupid question, but stacks; do you guys mess with em or just let em happen? i feel like messing with them would be wayyyy to hard, but i dont want it to look shitty either. (btw theyre just ub 201's so its not that big of a deal, but its my first selvedge so whatever.)
October 18, 2012 @ 15:49:24
Make them how u want them, they should stay how you put them..unless you washed the shit out of them early on and how no starch left in them....

i have a pair of washed(they came washed example of washed apcs) apc ps that are dirty, can washing affect any loss of color or anything, or is it ok to just throw them in the washing machine inside out?
October 23, 2012 @ 07:34:41
nah just bang em in there, cold wash
October 23, 2012 @ 21:33:20
Your going to get some sort of color loss whether you wash or soak none the less, but not so much to worry about.

Can i use Ultra Tide with Color Safe to wash them or do i really need Woolite?
October 24, 2012 @ 03:12:40
I've always used some regular shit, if you fancy, go with Woolite black lol. doubt it will make any difference
October 24, 2012 @ 04:45:58
Vos, if they're really that color just wash them how you'd wash any of your other clothes. It's not that serious man.

Just got some new selvage about 3 weeks ago (I believe they have stopped bleeding). If I soaked them to shrink them, how much would they bleed and what would be the best way to go about minimizing the bleed?

are they sanforized or unsanforized? If they're sanforized you don't need to soak them and if they're unsaforized you should have soaked them before you started wearing them.

And I doubt they've stopped bleeding in 3 weeks, unless you've really beat the shit out of em.

Unless we know if they san. or unsan. then we can't help you on shrinkage. But if they're sanforized they wont shrink much and then they'll jus stretch right back out

I believe that they are unsanforized
