i would expect ocean washing will make your jeans look better


How so? Does anyone have any details on ocean washing?

Ask dannyshred, I remember he washed his NC's in the ocean.

is there any way to get rid of sag?
my pair of jeans look like this when i wear them
Aug 06, 2010 @ 12:03
Thanks but do you know how it will affect the colour/ fades/ fit?


If I'm correct the salt will keep in the indigo more.

Will the shrink be less cause you are washing them while you are still wearing them? Should you rub sand on them or no?
Aug 06, 2010 @ 12:52
I'm assuming the ocean is probably cold so they would shrink plus your wearing them so shrinking would be limited if they did.
As far as sand I think that is just an option for a different way to agitate the denim.

Thank you F/22. It doesn't seem like people have a lot of information on ocean washing so i'm just going to try it out within the next month. I'll let you guys how it goes.

You should check out sufu denim forums they have a lot more info on denim than hypebeast
Aug 06, 2010 @ 13:31
Okay thanks, I'll hit that up.

Is it possible to taper a pair of jeans (only 0.5" - 0.75") from the inseam only to avoid messing the selvedge line?
Aug 06, 2010 @ 22:20
I think they do that but it might be somewhat more difficult for them to. I don't really know why though

it is possible just find a good tailor.

bombers just tell them to make their adjustments to the inseam instead of the outseam. that way the line is left alone.

does anyone know how the quality is on the huf denims?
Aug 10, 2010 @ 00:55
probably not good considering most streetwear brands don't deliver good quality.
Aug 10, 2010 @ 01:24
i hear the hufs fit decent but if you want quality denim, go to a company that focuses on it.

How do you guys suggest soaking/washing/caring for raw denim at university where a tub is not available for soaks and the only washing machines are shitty communal ones?
(ocean washing is an option for me, but i've been advised against it...)

buy a cooler

obviously you have to fold your jeans a little for it to fit. I used it to soak my jeans.

haha ghetto ass university style! Thats what I like to see!
Also, great idea F/22. Thanks for all your help.

im taking my slim fits to a tailor tommrow, and i was wondering what taper length is best to be fitted, and fall perfect on a pair of canvas sneakers (i.e. chucks, vans)

Is 7.5 good?

the current length is 8.0

any help would be greatly appreciated.

edit: question has been answered.
Aug 10, 2010 @ 22:46
Have your tailor pin your jeans to the amount of taper you want before tapering and see what you like best.
Aug 11, 2010 @ 16:49
I asked this question in the 3Sixteen thread but this thread is probably a better place to ask.

How do you know if a pair of jeans has a taper or not?
I know some actually say it, but what about those that don't?
Unless if it doesnt say then it doesnt have one?
but I'm pretty sure my skulls have a taper but no where on SE/BiG does it say it does.

unless they don't?

any black coated denim that will get shiny after wearing and fit similiar to , or slimmer than nudies SJDBC, but with a plain backpockt?

Skull S5010XX or Samurai S710XX??
Aug 16, 2010 @ 22:44
^ I believe Skulls 5010's are slimmer than S710's.

I think Skulls 5070's are more like the S710's. According to BiG measurements.
Aug 16, 2010 @ 23:01
i cant decide between Skull 5070 and Samurai 710....
Aug 16, 2010 @ 23:11
Well I just ordered my sams blushing
Looking at pictures & stuff, the fading on sams are really nice.
Also, heard that Skulls stitching is pretty weak. I think the price for Sams is that high for a reason, quality. Not saying Skulls aren't quality, they're very nice.
Aug 16, 2010 @ 23:20
somebody said skull purposely put weak stitching so it gets people to do repairs an such while they wear them? just a statement i heard, but skulls are still worth getting imo.
