Small DENIM Questions Thread

If they're not dirty, don't bother. if they are, then yes. Machine wash cold (or hot depending on how much shrinkage you want), I always put mine on delicate, but I'm pretty sure regular wash is fine. Then I let them hang dry, do whatever you want to let them dry, but if you put them in the dryer it weakens the fabrics and does a lot more bad things to the jeans.

6 months is about up, the fades are very well set in. Now what? throw them in the wash machine on cold and hang dry?


Sounds like a plan.

How do I get salt stains out of my APCs? Been trudging through snow and the salt is getting to them.. can I just wipe it off with a wet towel? Hopefully I don't lose indigo.

You'll definitely lose some indigo if you wipe with a wet towel, but it won't be a significant amount.

check your local macy's/urban outfitters/jc penny's, mall stores basically, they carry a lot of different levi's in different washes and fits

I've got some dirt on the back of my jeans that won't go away, trying to brush it off now.. should I just leave it? Will it eventually go away with wear? I'm asking because I just got a new pair of jeans thats why!

Thanks!

It might go away with wear. I would just leave it, unless you want to wash your jeans.

Nudie makes a bunch of stuff that isn't raw.

does anyone know where I can get some pretty serious heavy weight raw jeans? like above 14.5oz?

nudie has a much broader range of fits, so it would be easier to find a more desirable fit.

if you're looking for a slim-ish/skinny-ish fit i would recommend:

for nudies: grim tims/slim jims.
for apcs: petite standard.

just use a dab of water and kind of smudge it off.
if it is really severe, it won't go away with wear, but your fades might be light brown-ish.

worst comes to worst, just hot soak them and use some laundry detergent.

Look at blueingreensoho.com or selfedge.com to start with. There are many brands and models at both of those stores that are well above 14.5 oz. for denim weight.

I've got these Energie jeans pretty much for free and would like to wear them during summer.
The only thing that bothers me are those artificial holes.
Would it be advisable to get them tailored or rather leave them the way they are?

Besides, is this what you call "acid wash" ?

Unfortunately I can't post Images yet, so I hope this link will do:

Yeah you're meant to just wear them like that but they're your jeans so if you don't appreciate the look you can patch/darn/fill the holes up.
Or you could trade/sell them they eat that up on eBay.

Yeah, there are a lot of pre-washed selvage jeans on the market as well.

indigo raw denim fades much faster comparing to black one?
February 01, 2011 @ 19:29:33
I've got some unwanted stacking, or rather it looks messy, can I soak the bottom half and let the stacking rest again or will it just fall the same way?
February 01, 2011 @ 19:36:56
It will probably just settle back the same. Try cuffing and inch and see if that helps, if it does you ought to hem.
February 01, 2011 @ 19:47:39
Yea I cuff sometimes, but I don't do it too often, no other method I could use? I'm trying to avoid a hem, I like the length, just sometimes it looks messy stacked.
February 01, 2011 @ 20:12:39
You could try wearing different shoes/boots.

In most cases, yes.

Depending how long you have had them (thinking if they are new), stacks have to settle. On my sammies it looked like shit at first, but now it is better looking. Still being settled, but it takes a while.
