If you put lighter fluid on it, and then torched them. You'd not only get rid of the ugly face patches, but also the ugly jeans.


When you get rid of the patches its not a bad looking jeans at all mofo.

Oh yes. Green vomit colored tears, and fake distressing = really cool. But only if it didn't have the face patches.. Gotcha.

I bought a pair of Skulls for $100 that are still a dark indigo, but it seems the previous owner has washed/soaked them a couple times so they aren't stiff at all. Should I starch them or should I just wear them, I've worn them once so far and the denim has some creases, but they don't look as distinct as they should if they were brand new.

Would the jeans still fade well? I realize they won't have extremely high contrast fades, but I'm wondering if they will still fade starch or no starch.

You'll be fine - just wear them. Creases take a bit of time to develop starch or not.

hey,

I currently wear Levis 505s because I don't like my jeans too baggy or too tight.

Are there any raw denims out there that would resemble these jeans? If so, are there any that they would sell at department stores such as macys so that I could try them on first?

hmm Samurai S0500

both straight cuts an could be on the slimmer side if you size right, but those two are worth looking at.

So, I'm in day two of wearing my Levi 501 STF's They shrunk to a nice fit but I have a knee bulge that's pretty well formed. Should I soak it again at the end of this week? or should I just wear on with it? The Honeycombs and whiskers are coming along nicely however.

knee bulges are always prone to happen, wearing out your jeans will always cure that problem, not soaking.

I would try waiting for it to dry out, and then removing the bits of it left over with my fingernails. If that doesn't work, you could also try spot cleaning with water and a mild detergent. If neither of those work, you're probably going to have to do a machine wash.

They'll still fade well, you just might not get as high contrast on the fading without the starch.

Probably not. From what I've seen, the original leg opening tends to be at least 6-8" on most jeans with long inseams.

I recently bought some levis fenom 505 jeans. They fit good, but are baggy in the whole thigh area. Is it possible to taper them in the thigh area at a tailor?

I don't see why not, just make sure you find a good Tailor.

Supposedly acetone (nail polish remover) is a good solvent for super glue. Not sure if it does anything to the indigo dye in your jeans, though. I'd imagine that it would, it is a really strong solvent.

i have a pair of helmut lang jeans w a 36 inch inseam, id like to get them hemmed.

Never had jeans hemmed before so my question is this, could I take them to any run of the mill tailor or should I look for someone with a reputation/following.

Not sure how much skill it takes to hem a pant leg or if its possible to fuck it up etc etc.

not sure if they are chainstitched or not, but if they are you will definetely lose it except in some instances like mine i cant really describe what they did. Always look for a reputable tailor, and make sure you let them know to return the hem to original size(some places charge more for this).

I think that depends on how good you want the hem to look. If you want it to look the best that it can, you're going to want to take it to someone who can chainstitch the hem. Where you live, Self Edge and Blue in Green are both stores in NYC that can do it this way. Chainstitching is the better-looking way to go, but it is also the more expensive way to go, it will cost you $25-$30 per pair of jeans.

If you don't want chainstitching or if you think it is too pricey, you could have the tailor do a lock stitch hem. If you do this it will be cheaper ($10-$20 per pair), and you can take it anywhere you want. It won't look as good, though, and you won't get as much roping on the hem.
