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 @ 20:51:57
^^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

^^^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

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?

How harmful is it to soak jeans constantly? I'm under 10 wears in my slim jims but I've already soaked them once after the second wear because they got pretty messed from partying and I'm thinking of soaking them again because of a party last night. I got some weird make up or something smeared on them and they look pretty filthy.

^ I wouldn't recommend soaking that much with Nudies. They tend to lose indigo easily and the fit isn't very nice afterwards.

What about a cold soak? They didn't seem to lose any indigo after the hot soak and a cold soak shouldn't alter the fit...
