I think you sorta answered your own question?

No, just tell them the amount in inches you wanted hemmed off your inseam. It shouldn't mess with the leg opening.

I got my LVC's slightly tapered. The tailor though tapered the selvedge, and now it looks extremely wide. Is it possible to bring them back and have him put the selvedge back to it's normal size, and have the inside of the leg tapered instead since I do like how they fit.

Your balls sweat, and it's bad for you.

What exactly does the weight of the denim mean ?
like people say
14oz japanese denim... or 21oz denim
Can someone explain ?
Dec 17, 2009 @ 18:55
iirc... it means each square yard weights 14 oz or 21 oz.

new to this denim game and HB,
would rain have any effects on my apcNS?

If you washed them already then it shouldn't matter, but if you haven't yet, then
rain would cause indigo loss, but obviously depends on how wet ur denim gets.

i just bought a pair of Unbranded. i got sz 30 and i'm general a 31, i'd say really 31.5. they only button the first 2. will they stretch out that much to fit perfectly?

My current situation is that one leg shrunk due to beach water after a trip.

My question is, if I machine wash them, will they shrink back to even lenght, or will they shrink to proportion and remain uneven? Should i wash in hot or cold? And if continues to be unproportional, or if above method won't work, then should I just soak the longe side? Or am I just fucked?

Is this true? Its good idea, soak my apc's afte 2,5month's of wear? Will they fade really faster?

It's all up to you, If you soak now, you will lose color, so at the end of it all your fades will be closer to the rest of the jeans..if you wait then the fades are more contrasting...personally id wait till 6 months

If no one has a solution, I'ma simply soak the other leg and let it dry...

dump the jeans in water
if one shrunk most likely that will be the most itll shrink unless you run it through a full wash
so soaking it wont effect it as much an would even things out

Yeah, I'm thinking of dumping the other side in water as I can still feel/calculate the difference in how the denim feels, so I should be able to even it out with ease. Thanks.

Also, if anyone has another opinion or solution, then let it be heard because I don't plan to do implement the change until after the holidays.

Does anybody know if Nudie Slim Jim Dry Japans are unsanforized? I have a brand new pair btw.
I wanna soak them to shrink a little before I wear them, this a good idea?
