What are the effects of washing raw jeans in the machine and dryer?
December 28, 2008 @ 13:23:20
you're explaining that the denim you have isn't raw right now. creasings is the giveaway showing that they aren't raw unless you bought a pair of jeans that were already worn by someone then returned


by raw i mean unwashed indigo heavy rigid denim..the jeans were not washed they were just whiskered in behind the leg by an iron or something its still raw though because its not predistressed or washed in any way..u done?
December 28, 2008 @ 20:34:23
nah but i'll let you iron your jeans. plz post photos too

^Cheap Monday? Levis STF
Overall I just reccomend you just wait and save up for some APC's. Only like $50 more.


Looking to finally get a good pair of raw denim. I wear size 36x32 in Levis 501, and I like the fit of it. What size should I order I'm thinking size 34 in New Standard, thanks for the help.

yeah get cheap mondays, or let me talk to your mom, i think i can arrange something if u know what i mean

in case you didn't know what i meann, i meant i would have sex with your mom, and she would pay me 140 dollars, and then i would give 60 to you, and you would have enough to buy some decent raw selvedge

ok, so im a girl, i want a pair of raw denim,
but i need to be enlightened, i been reading all your guyss posts and stuff and im interested, but tell me. what should i get for a first pair?
and i can't have it being like hella expensive.
December 30, 2008 @ 04:39:22
maybe APC New Cures (they're selvage)
-size down 2-3"

or you can get Nudies (not selvage)
-go true to waist or size down 1"
they have more fits that might appeal to girls

these will run about 155-165$.

some coupons
Nudies
styleforumnudies (25% off at www.selfedge.com)

APC
-PM Citizen on this forum
-style4um (20% off for www.denimbaronline.com)

other than that good luck. those are some of the most common "higher-end" raw denim brands.

----------
for "cheap" denim, look into Cheap Monday tight jeans. Runs like 65$

I'm looking into buying a pair of Nuidie Thinn finns 27x34,

The waist is measured at 28 which is what I am. I normally wear a 28x30 (no stacking)

Will they stack or will I need to get them hemmed?
January 01, 2009 @ 13:17:36
yes, a 34" inseam will most likely have stacking on you compared to a 30" inseam. If you don't like it, I guess get it hemmed but you may lose the chainstitching at the hem unless you get the hemming done at SelfEdge or something.

How much do the Black New standards stretch out to?
January 01, 2009 @ 13:25:24
should be the same as most APCs...they stretch out to your normal waist size or past it even if you size down 2"

they not selvage though

what do y'all do to stop the leaking onto shoes from selvedge denim? i haven't washed my two pairs of uniqlo selvedge denim yet and it's been like 3 months. should i give them one wash or will that ruin the look?
January 03, 2009 @ 10:14:39
^ Good question. And what should I do to get paint off jeans?

And re: soaking. If I hot soak 'em and wear them, isn't the length going to shrink?
January 03, 2009 @ 13:12:55
Raw jeans bleeding is one of the perks of having raw denim. There is no way of stopping it but you can reduce it by giving your jeans a cold soak to get some excess dye out or you can tape the hem of your jeans where they bleed at. Even if you washed the jeans in the washer, they may still bleed just a little.

If you soak and the inseam (length) shrinks, stretch the inseam out while its damp.

I can haz e-gurl?!?!

No but really, what's your price range?
January 03, 2009 @ 15:45:06
pretty short story with a short question;

these jeans, http://www.karmaloop.com/products.aspx?ProductID=38360&VendorCode=CNC, were washed one time and machine dryed (<-- wasn't my turn to do laundry, my bad) and now i have two problems.

one, there's no more sag left to them. they're practically straight legged.

other problem is there's like.. little tears in them almost and since they're black the white threads show up like mad.

anyway, i can't return them. the rips or whatever they are are pretty much unfixable but there's only a couple that are somewhat noticable. but what i'm wondering is how i can fix how fuckin straight and goofy they look right now. here's a couple pictures.



January 03, 2009 @ 15:46:43
Can't fix them, i doubt your jeans can stretch back to once they were.

awesome.

and do you have any idea how those tears came to be? would that be from drying it, shitty denim, or the washing machine? it's never happened before
January 03, 2009 @ 15:57:41
^My APC's have a couple of those little tears, but I've never washed them. So I don't know where they come from.

Considering this crooks & castle denim, the quality wont be top notch (no hate on your jeans). Most likely the holes would have been caused from the washer x dryer combo giving it a lot of abrasion and giving those holes.

how badly cudnt u fit the w30 uniqlos?
a w30 apc nc will fit a true waist of 32..
so if the uniqlos were just a lil small,
the apc's should fit but mayb a lil loose?
January 03, 2009 @ 23:32:15
PBJ xx 005, true waist around 30. size down 29? or 28? or true to size?
January 03, 2009 @ 23:36:20
from BiG measurements looks like you can size down to a size 28
January 03, 2009 @ 23:44:19
anybody got a discount code for BIG? 225 is alot for my first pair of raw denim!
January 03, 2009 @ 23:46:01
