I'm hella brolic doo! Fall back.

Question to get back on topic.

Willl these $35 514's get as good honeycombs/stacks/wallet marks etc. as $200 Nudies? Or is it, the more expensive the denim, the better looking the jeans could look? (not the cut/style, the wear i mean)
514s arent raw denim. They won't fade like RAW DENIM.

I swear some people are just stupid...It's common sense dude.

If you want them to shrink, just soak them in some hot water for 30minutes or longer but youll lose some stiffness, if you want nice honeycombs and fading just wear them, but i dont think cm fade very well

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. 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.
