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? blushing

What does everyone do after a days wear?

HANG?

THROW THEM SOME WHERE?

FOLD AND PUT AWAY?

LAY THEM ON THE GROUND?

Doesn't matter. If I'm feeling lazy I'll just leave them on the ground or hang them.

sorry if this is a stupid question but I was wondering if you can use febreeze on your jeans when they start to smell, that way you can keep from washing them for a while longer.

get soft and may tighten up by alittle, your 511s arent raw just rigid so just wash and dry them like regular jeans nothing special

i have a pair of raw jeans that I've washed a few times before right after a few wears.

Now that I know about raw denim I want to get some honeycomb fading action, but I'm not sure if the previous washing will make a difference??

you dont need to wear them in the shower...soak for about 30mins-1hr in the hottest water from the tap...then let them cool for a bit then put them on...

trust me once they dry they would be stiff as fuck...

peep my avatar...its a pair of stfs standing on its own after soak and dry
