Does anyone know if these are sanforized or unsanforized?

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=24221806

It states on a sticker included that 'This pant is unwashed and will shrink up to 5% after the first wash. It may also dry and wet bleed'.

I ask because my searching online about Cheap Monday denim usually says its sanforized and doesn't need a soak.

Any help would be good.


Cheap Monday is sanforized.
I would return them, I rather have 100% cotton denim, and not cotton/elastane.

Unsanforized = shrinks
Raw = unwashed; fadez
Selvedge = colored line thingy on the inside outseam

just gave my samurai's a second soak, trying to keep the creases as they were, and samurai's get stiff as fuck after a soak or wash, so you think that if i were to pack them in my luggage, to have them flattened, would I be left with some weird folds in the places where its folded or would I be better off wearing them onto the plane?

you should be fine as long as the jeans don't move around too much while in luggage. But, why not just wear them onto the plane?

im flying to the middle east, so its going to be crazy hot out of the plane, so I thought shorts and some loafers would be a good and more comfortable idea, rather than some heavy denim that at this point is quite abrasive.

Thank you for your perspective.

If its as hot as you say it is, why bring jeans?

How much harder is it to fade Light weight Turkish denim? Im currently trying to break in my Organic Dry brown selv Nudies "Grim Tim's" ..does the same routine you usually follow for Raw Denim correlate with The Turkish denim? ya know, the wait at least 6 months before wash.. wear them everyday.. i think the material is throwing me off.. i Can't find any fading pictures so I'm leaving the results of wear to my imagination.. Im assuming they will indeed be a deep dirty brown??? please let me know

I'd just wear them and maybe do some stretches. They will stretch some.

im about two weeks in my Broken Twills and they've already stretched a tiny bit and the creases have set. I wanna get them tapered, but would that mess up the creases?

www.selfedge.com has quite a wide range of heavy denim.

3 branches in LA, SF and NY they also do chainstitch hemming and darning.

This answers the above question as well.

If you're looking for something like the weird guy fit, you can try imperial dukes, strikegold 1105 - 2105 or flathead 2001s

Two questions:
- Does going back and forth between one small cuff and several cuffs affect the fades on my denim's stacks?
- Should the cuffs be fondled with (my ankles are abnormally thin), or should it just be allowed to 'settle' by itself?

I've asked these two questions in two different threads but never got any response. Hope you guys can help!

answer to your first questions. Its not significant enough for you to give a fuck lol.

Spray some water on the stacks and adjust them accordingly, after which just allow them to settle naturally. Water helps speed up the process.
