naked famous teflon denims
I saw some 'kevlar jeans' the other day by naked famous and was wondering how they fade. anyone know?
not thinking of buying im just super curious.

Is it necessary to soak jeans in full-length bathtubs? Or will like a five-gallon bucket or a sink suffice? I don't want any excess dye to stain my tube which has happened in the past. Does it matter if the jeans thus aren't fully extended?

Has anyone had any success with overdyeing denim? I recently bought a pair of Naked & Famous vintage blue weird guys and I'm not thrilled with the color in person. I was thinking that I would get used to it, and I've seen some really great faded pairs of the vintage blue, but I really don't want to take the time to get the color to a point I like. I had them hemmed cause I thought I would eventually like them, so they can't be returned. Considering overdyeing them black. Thoughts?

Guys I just copped some Girbauds, I sized up. I was wondering how long I should wait to wash and how I should wash them. I'm trying to get some good fades on them.

ive worn my apcs for about 6 months and theres some fade from wear

should i wash em now or go raw dog??? ( i sorta like em how they are now but want to see how they turn out lighter)


also how do i get rid of these folds on the back pockets(Sorta like the diaper but its from the jeans being bigger in rear and it like folds inwards forming like a diagonal line through both pockets)

also does it matter if i machine wash instead of soaking?
Jun 04, 2010 @ 21:38
if u feel that u put enough wear, then wash it.
it does matter if u wash it instead of soaking. washing will get rid of more dye, blah blah blah.

and post some pics.

now that i looked at it

i feel like they could use some more work but does that matter? if i go a little longer?

cause the jeans are starting to get mad dirty


im just real nervous as to how these turn out i dont want them to come out the wash looking like some old sky blue jeans

^^^^^^
just use ur gut man. denim isnt an exact science. they obviously wont get sky blue after one wash so u should be fine for a LONG LONG while man. i mean back before i really got into denim i had a pair of uniqlos n washed em almost every other day n they still have a rather dark blue hue. so ur good man.

so in the end just go with ur gut man.

No. Idk why so many people waste so much water in filling their bathtub. I just use the one from Home Depot (like $6 for the bucket and lid) and fill that sucker half way and let them go. If you want, you can shake the bucket to agitate. I use the same method for washing as well.

So for unsanforized raw denim, I should still give a hot soak and air dry right?
Jun 06, 2010 @ 11:10
Do any stores still sell LVC 1947 501 RAW or are they discontinued or something?

I have a pair of Levis 511s that I've been wearing. They're a bit bigger than I would like so would a soak later on have any good shrinking effect?

does cuffing denim when first acquired cause it to rip

cause the crease is too defined due to the starch?

dont think so. probably depends on the denims ur using and the weight on them.

i.e. i got sum neighborhoods n theyre fine after about 6 months of wear cuffing for about half the time.

and just iron em n i dont see y the crease would be too defined.

seems counteractive but i find leaving them in the car through a hot day usually does the trick.
