with cheap monday's i hear that they stretch a lot if i buy a pair and i like how they fit do i have to soak them(im not overly stressed on fades etc)??? and secondly if they stretch later down the track will soaking them return them to their former fit??

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

I'll probably steal one today... I just have to find one first.

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
Apr 07, 2008 @ 21:07
pretty much, or you can go even hotter and put in boiling water

I'm looking to get my jeans so they're a tighter fit.

how would i go on doing this?
would i still use the shrink method?
Apr 07, 2008 @ 22:56
Your jeans won't necessarily shrink by soaking. Soaking only shrinks them back to their original fit which will stretch back out.

okay... quick question. i just got a pair of levi's 514. how do they stack? i like the fit and everything, but if i wanted to keep the stacks what do i have to do? do i have to soak them first or anything? thanks.
Apr 13, 2008 @ 04:49
Uhhhh...they stack if the inseam is longer than your legs. WTF is up with kids these days? COMMON FUCKING SENSE. tongueface


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

the dryer dick
Apr 17, 2008 @ 00:40
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...
Apr 20, 2008 @ 23:07
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?
Apr 20, 2008 @ 23:10
What kind of Levi's are they?
Apr 21, 2008 @ 20:18
Isnt starching not supposed to be very good for the jeans though?
Apr 21, 2008 @ 22:25
Organisisms will eat the shit out of your denimz with starch.
Apr 22, 2008 @ 12:39
they're 511's raw
Apr 22, 2008 @ 15:46
^ 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.

People fucking baby their jeans too much.


QFT...

it's not the end of the world if you don't see fades at 2 months..
Apr 22, 2008 @ 21:49

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? blushing
Apr 23, 2008 @ 19:46
^ no shrinking needed. wear a belt.
May 03, 2008 @ 13:30
What does everyone do after a days wear?

HANG?

THROW THEM SOME WHERE?

FOLD AND PUT AWAY?

LAY THEM ON THE GROUND?
