I am looking for a very dark indigo slim/straight jean. Which would be better: s0500xx or s710xx. One problem is BiG is out of stock on s0500xx until August. Basically I am wondering if the s0500xx would be the better fit and if it’s worth waiting.

1. Which one is darker?
2. Which would have the slim/straight look I am looking for better?
3. Which size should I get if my true waist is 32? ( accounting for stretch after the hot soak)

For some reason the forum is glitching on me and I can't see any responses after February in the Denim Care thread so I thought I would ask here. Bought some denim that was on sale online, was wondering if it would be safe to store it as it is in the packaging without risk of too much fading. It was a pretty good deal and couldn't really pass it up at the time.

^ a soak won't do any harm, try not to agitate (only loose indigo will wash out anyway)

^say if I didn't do anything at all and kept wearing them, would my denim be harmed in any way?

I think that stains like these makes your jeans more personal to you, just go with it and rock it! dont wash them! haha

they are more of a regular straight fit rather than a slim straight fit.

When point of the fading process are you supposed to wash your jawnz?

And is the washing process pretty much consist of cold water, inside out, and hang dry?

it depends on how much wearing you've put into your jeans, the guideline is 6 months. as for the washing it's up to you lol just stay away from the drying machine

Anybody else have a problem with wallet fades, like how it tends to fade faster on the inside?

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.

^I cant answer your question, but if its not too late, i'd rather get unbrandeds from urbanoutfitters than cheap mondays. Way better quality and same price range.

For ocean soaks, after i rinse it with clean water, would they still smell like ocean? would i have to soak it again in some detergent?

There's a reason why this thread is called the "Small DENIM Questions Thread" Dont ask questions about those. And im pretty sure no one on this forum even fucks with those pants.

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

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 (Invalid img)
