cm stretch like a bitch i heard, you dont need to soak, they dont fade alot either. but if they stretch out to much just give them a hot soak and hot dry

When you say that you must soak stf's in hot water, what is considered as hot? As hot as you can get from your shower or what? :D

Your jeans won't necessarily shrink by soaking. Soaking only shrinks them back to their original fit which will stretch back out.

Uhhhh...they stack if the inseam is longer than your legs. WTF is up with kids these days? COMMON FUCKING SENSE. razz


the ones i have have creases in the back of the knees but i dunno if you can consider that honeycombs. my question was will the creases stay cuz i'm pretty sure these aren't raw denim. and what's with all the hostility???

it was just a question. calm down buddy. isn't this the reason why we have these forums in the first place? for people to ask questions. and for people with the answers to answer the questions. no matter how stupid they are? not everyone on here are professionals.

so my oni reds came in a lot larger than i thought, so i did a hot soak for a few hours, then hot dried them in the dryer...

but now they're soft, so i'm planning on putting starch...so where can i find these starch sprays from? i've honestly never heard of them...what are they supposed to be used for in the first place?

and for those with experience in oni reds, will i still be able to achieve fades with them even after a hot soak and hot dry?

thanks

is that what you call your dryer? a "dick"?

anyway, it even says throughout this thread to hot soak and hot dry for maximum shrinkage, and the jeans ended up being a good enough size for me...

i'm just wondering if the stacks and honeycombs will still show up on them after starching...

I have a problem, the honeycombs on my levis suck dick, and i tend to sag a lot. What can I do to get them to come out more?

^ i don't believe there is such thing..

You probably mean one wash.. which is close to raw. Sagging doesn't usually affect your honeycombs, more so if you don't sit on your ass enough, the combs won't show. Try using starch and that'll get the fades to appear.

I have a pair of selvedge Uniqlo's regular fit. I haven't worn them yet and I was wondering if it's possible to shrink them in the waist a bit. If it is, how? smile
