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.

hang dry

just febreeze the jeans and let them sit in some flowing air

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??

^just wear them without washing for awhile...fades will just take longer now that you;ve washed them a couple of times
May 13, 2008 @ 09:54
should i do the , soak, wear in the shower routine to make them stiffer because they aren't very stiff at all
May 14, 2008 @ 00:52
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

Those already have a fade...how are you going to "work" on them?
May 19, 2008 @ 05:04
can i still get honeycombs?

sorry for noob qeustions
May 19, 2008 @ 07:03
^no you wont be able to...they are faded already so any more fading will be very minimal.

just buy some cheap raw denim like stfs to start off...we got some in sydney bro
May 19, 2008 @ 17:33
^if converted its like 15 bucks cheaper
May 19, 2008 @ 18:02
Do I actually have to soak my raw denim just to get really nice honeycombs? Or can I just wear them without wash or soak?
May 19, 2008 @ 20:51
^^you have to wear them first to get the creases going...then after washing/soaking the combs become more defined...this normally takes awhile hence the "evolution of jeans" thread

Someone Please Reply Fkin Hell
May 21, 2008 @ 07:27
^^^haha...you have no reason to be anxious. they are a pre-washed pair of jeans so nothing will happen to it. the most that will happen that is very positive is that it will feel lighter. but no extra fading or loss of fading will occur.

chill bro...your jeans are safe
May 21, 2008 @ 07:32
THANKS FOR THE QUICK REPLY SYDNEY SIDER

BUT ARE U SURE?!

cuz WHEN I BOUGHT EM, THEY WERE HEAVY AND HARD LIKE SAND PAPER

once a jean is faded, it most likely wont become unfaded. i threw a pair of predistressed jeans in the wash with a couple packets of black rit to try out overdying and the rit didnt cover the distressed areas.

i just got some second hand apc's new standards they have been worn a little bit and washed once

however,
they are a bit baggier than i would normally wear them so if i hot soak them how much will they shrink?
