Ive had more fading on my 5010's than my f310. For skulls I say size true. My waist was true size 30 at the time and my bro bought a size 28 5010xx for me. Was too tight initially could not button all the way up but when it never stretched out enough. They dont stretch much so size true at most size down 1. Depends on your fit.

so basically if my true waist is 30 get 30 and not 29 that measures 30?

if you are true size 30 then size 29 seems right for you.skulls stretch a little bit maybe half an inch but don't take stretching into consideration when buying because its not significant; plus you want your jeans to be comfortable. i don't know how you like to wear your denim so measure your current favorite pair of skinny jeans and compare the measurements from there.

take the measurements from an existing pair you like. for a 29, most likely itll be somewhere between 6-7" laid flat.

When is a good time for a first soak for a pair of APC NS?
Apr 26, 2010 @ 14:19
^tbh dont overthink when u need to soak or wash, just do it when u feel they need to get cleaned
Apr 26, 2010 @ 17:17
Does soaking and then washing later on (as in 1 month and later) help with the fading and other shit?
Apr 27, 2010 @ 07:53
^the later you wash the more the contrast you'll get with ur fades, but contrast won't matter when ur jeans smell like shit.
Apr 27, 2010 @ 15:06
starting to hate the whole raw denim feel, and i have my apcs how can i go about softening them up?
Obviously one wash, but my washer will always spin as far as i know.
Dryer, or would that be bad? I havnt seen too many people run their jeans through the dryer.

I just need these soft, and not crunching up anymore.

i c, but i was just asking in general if soaking and then washing later on will have a better effect as opposed to just washing and not soaking.

don't know if this question was asked before but here goes. I've been wearing my raw jeans for almost 2 years already but it's not fading. the only thing that has noticeable fade is the pocket where i keep my cell phone. tips?
Apr 29, 2010 @ 08:54
if it's not fading in 2 years, it's not raw .
but then again, if u wear non-raws for over a year w/o washing then you can get fades. iunno bout wtf ur wearing
Apr 29, 2010 @ 10:58
brand is wesc. one of those slim selvedge ones. i don't know whats wrong either. i've had other raw jeans that faded quickly

I tried doing a quick search about what's the best method to wash denim for the first time but I just got hella posts of random stuff.

So my question is, what's the best way to wash my PBJs for the first time? Just cold water with these old shitty college washers or should I also use detergent?

depends how longs its been, if they smell id suggest using some woolite black with them. If ur just washing cuz u want to and they arent really dirty or smelly then you could just give them a cold water soak.

Does holding out on washing make the jeans more likely to blow out at the crotch?
May 01, 2010 @ 18:16
Crotch blowout is just due to abrasion.

May 01, 2010 @ 20:12

This might be a dumb question but i have been into jeans for a while now and i still dont have an answer. How can you tell the quality of denim. I have had all sorts of jeans over the years and i dont know how to tell how the quality of each pair is.
May 04, 2010 @ 21:01
Is it a bad idea to use the dryer on high to dry your jeans? Im trying to shrink my BSPs some more even after 2 hot soaks.

will coin purses or coin pouches mess up my raw denims if i put them in my front right pocket?
it seems like im growing whiskers on my jeans but my right front pocket is forming a squared shape of my coin pouch.
how will this affect the long term of me wearing my raw jeans?
May 05, 2010 @ 15:19
u'll have a fade in the shape of the pouch
