nothing but soaking them. They'll eventually stretch out to the same waist they are now though.

soaking in hotter water would create more shrinkage i'm assuming?

I go lifting with jeans occasionally (like 2-3 times a month). But only when I go impulsively, like when I have an hour between classes. I would never purposely wear jeans to the gym.

In my opinion, I'd want my fades to come into existence as a reflection my lifestyle.
Not trying to get fades, just for the sake of fades.

i have a pair of washed(they came washed example of washed apcs) apc ps that are dirty, can washing affect any loss of color or anything, or is it ok to just throw them in the washing machine inside out?


Can i use Ultra Tide with Color Safe to wash them or do i really need Woolite?

thats fair. ive become obsessed with fades recently after looking at different evo pics online, cant fault me for wanting to go the extra mile. i worked out today in my denim and came to the realization that its not the greatest idea to do it frequently, the extra heat leaves you hurting as expected lol.

This is what most people in this section ceased to understand the raw denim concept in the recent 3 years.

everyone has their own, and sometimes you do have to trim/crop/and take diff't measures in getting the denim looking a certain way. there's nothing wrong with it.

i personally have shot hoops in mine, but i don't see why i have to force it by going to the gym w/ it. it looks stupid, and doesn't help w/ ventilation.

i know raw denim is about the journey and the jeans reflecting your lifestyle. that being said, i do a lot of shit in my jeans and working out is just one of those things. you can say i was trying to force the fades, but the activities and shit you do in your jeans are all apart of raw denim and what make it unique. good to hear all the opinions though.

I feel that wearing your jeans would affect your full range of motion while working out. The only time I wear my jeans while riding my bike is during my commute to school. Then during my training rides I wear a kit. But whatever works for you, I guess.

washing would shrink them a little bit but it most likely wouldn't stay that size. You best bet would be to buy another size.

Or, you could always move the top button over or have they tailored but that seems like it would cost too much

Think about it as quality based, you won't be that susceptible to rips and such, don't know what kind of cotton your "15oz raw" is or what kind Unbranded used for the 20z(too lazy to search) but probably are different. Different type of cotton used to weave the denim will result in different effects/fades.

can somebody break down the difference/pros/cons of sanforized vs. unsanforized? and are my 3sixteen ST-100s sanforized or unsanforized?

you 316's are Sanforized.

difference is that UnSanforized denim you should/must soak before wear to shrink then denim..just like Levi's STF if you've ever had those. You don't really have to soak but later on once you wash them the fades will shift since the denim will shrink.
Sanforized denim you can wear them as soon you get them. Also they will not shrink that much..probably just as much as any other pair of jeans you would buy from the mall.

There's really no pros or cons that I know of. I guess it just comes down to personal preference. I guess UnSanforized denim you can kinda control the shrink to kinda get more of that perfect fit, but will all denim it will stretch back out.

Maybe others will know if there's actually any pros/cons to them.

I'm sure this is a retarded question, but I've honestly never quite understood: What do you people do that causes thigh fades on jeans? I literally have almost no thigh fade on any of my pairs.

Whoever told you that is dumb. They get dirty equally, because you wear them on your legs.

@hakizi
Creases and folds form into fades over time. If you sit down, and you dont see any creases.folds, you won't get whiskers.
