does rain wash off indigo? any fade at all after a heavy rain?
January 21, 2009 @ 10:12:56
it wont wash off indigio, itll just be like a minimal soak, heavy rain wont give you fading

deal with the smell.

I'm considering getting some jeans (selvedge) tapered because they stack really sloppily.smh The leg opening's 8 inches and I like the fit of my UniQlo T-000s that have a 7 inch opening. I've never gotten jeans tapered before, and I was wondering if they'd look weird if I took them in by about an inch?

or should I just get them hemmed?
January 22, 2009 @ 07:23:55
if they taper the selvage side, then it wont look good,

and tailors dont usally taper from the inside leg cuz of the double stitching.

hemming probably wont help unless the length is ridiculous.

if u cuff to show off the selvage strip then nothing u can do..

but if u dont then just taper from selvage side and its al gd

Why wouldn't it look good if they taper from the selvage side? I don't cuff, so it wouldn't be a problem for me.
January 22, 2009 @ 07:45:53
the selvage strip is usally like half an inch wide, but if u taper, then it gets wider buy how ever much u want it taperd. so it will be really wide.

doesnt matter, just the inside if u dont cuff

i just got a pair of flatheads and after soaking i can not button these mofos to save my life.

How can i stretch the waist band so i can button these up?
They are unsanforized.

They are zipper also
January 22, 2009 @ 20:27:15
wear em around the house buttoned as far as they can go and they will eventually stretch

Its a zipper fly.
And since i cant button the top the top will never stretch then.

tie a string into a loop around the hole where u do the top fly, then hook the loop onto the top button.

do that around the house for a while or wear a long tshirt

then it wil stretch

Just a few questions about my 511's:
- How long should I soak it in hot water for to shrink it down and lift the stench?
- Will the soak wash the indigo off?
- Is the shrink only going to be temporary or is it permanent?
- Will it remove the fades?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I got you hype smokeyface

- Hot water 30mins, more if you feel like it but its not that necessary.
- Slightly, nothing significant.
- Temporary, it may stretch back out after 3 weeks or so
- It wont remove fades, I don't know what you really mean, because fading is natural.

Maybe he means that he's worried that whatever fades he's got going will be ruined?

Word, you come with the denumz halp once again, my viet dude. Good looks. Is there any way to make the shrinking permanent? The fit on my 511's are pretty baggy.

Hit the nail on the head, there, buddy.
