do you change the water when your soaking your jeans? and do you soak em in a tub or a bucket

I'm kinda stuck about which pair of jeans I should get....

Should I get the Lemar & Dauley Raw Dogs?

or

the Knowledge x Diamond Jeans?

Or do any of you guys know how they fit?

you do not need to change the water when u are soaking ur denim. just let them soak for however long you want. people usually soak them in the showering tub and put shampoo bottles and stuff so the denim does not float up.

i just got a pair of slim jims nudie and i downsized and they are fcken tight, does anyone know how much theyll stretch by (like in inches around the waist etc) and how long itll take them to do it

I picked up some starch, tried it and when i sprayed it on my combs, and felt it and it felt more like it was becoming soft then rigid. The type of starch I'm using is Magic Premium Starch, any ideas or thoughts? Thanks.
Aug 22, 2007 @ 23:30
I get those white specks too, i just let me soak in I guess. So next time I starch ill give it some time to dry, thanks.
Aug 23, 2007 @ 00:12
its easier if you guys just get spray starch. theyre like a buck at target

Aug 23, 2007 @ 12:31
quick question how do nudies straight sven black selvedge fit compared to APC New standards???
Aug 24, 2007 @ 13:58
what fit of APC jeans would fit most like Gap Product Red jeans?
Aug 24, 2007 @ 15:17
^^ rescue.

nudies fit answer: no taper compared to apc ns, a little fuller through out.

i recently got a pair of Guess? jeans and i think they are selvage jeans. its my first pair of expensive jeans(170) and i dont know what i should do. should i wash it once before i start wearing them and try to break them in or something?

HELP!
Aug 24, 2007 @ 20:55
im pretty sure theyre not raw. its like a medium indigo color with fades in the thigh and back
Aug 24, 2007 @ 21:50
Sorry if this has been mentioned before but

How much is the cost for tailoring? (on an average)
My new jeans are kind of baggy, and i havent washed them yet, wondering if i should get them tailored (either cut it a little shorter or make them narrower)

Thanks.

i finally have the money to spend on some higher end denim, but i'm not sure what to get. i want a fit similar to diors but i'm not sure if i want to spend that type of money either. i'm 5'8-5'9, about 150 lbs. any help would be appreciated. thanks.
Aug 26, 2007 @ 13:29
the obvious choice would be some apc. depending on how tight you want them either the new standards or the new cure. the new cure being the skinnier. thats probably the closest your getting to diors with out dropping 4 bills.

julian red california is a good alternative to dior 19cm.
Aug 26, 2007 @ 21:14
Thanks guys... I'm looking at APC New Standards, how much should I size down, 2 sizes?
Aug 26, 2007 @ 22:05
Odd question: how many soaks/washes until dry denim starts to lose it's stiffness? Basically, when does it start to turn loose and crappy like pre-washed?
Aug 26, 2007 @ 23:17
Dior Homme Denim.
edit: sorry, wrong section.
