well... the dark parts of my denim are not much lighter than when they were new... my camers just doesnt capture it... its a shitty 2mp cam and makes everything look washed out. the whole not washing thing is fine if you dont lead an active lifestyle... your jeans just dont get dirty. the time period is more a marketing thing by nudie than anything else... the nicest denim ive ever seen were washed once a month or so.




both washed once a month.

does it feel any different after the soak? because mine are having little dot clumps of fabrics on the front thigh area. like when clothes get worn out

Yeh bought them in a 30 waist but they stretched a lot in waist so they needed a soak.

Now they fit excellent again.

They had some nice honeycombs but after the soak I need to wear them in again.

Your jeans do not look anything like the ones you posted, maybe you are 'washing' differently. Yours look like some A&F jeans, with the non-existent contrast, and overall lightness of the denim.

thats pretty close to the true color... maybe a bit lighter than the true color... i have a fucking 2mpx cam and shitty lighting. those i posted were probably taken with a dslr.

the problem with that is you wear out the denim quicker... there is a reason most nudies have blown out crotches. and selvage means nothing... wrangler denim is tougher tham most selvage denim. going a long time without washing puts alot of strain on the denim by letting it stretch too much. that makes the fabric thinner, and results in premature wear.

blinkyeyes haha are you serious, cheeps sams look great and have some of the most authentic fades and contrast compared to most, far from A&F

Yeah that's probably the case; either your pics have too much light or not enough lol. Still really nice jeans though.

Here's my Nudie Super Slim Kims at about 4 months. i washed them twice at around 1.5 months to get out the effects of partying.

hey cheep, don't know if you said this before or not, but is it necessary to wash often if you don't live that active a life in your jeans

no... i wash mine often because i work in them and skate in them a couple times a week, and i sweat like a fucking pig in this florida heat. if youre not active in them you dont need to wash often. its all about the abuse you put them thru. ive found that letting dried sweat sit in denim can cause the denim to weaken and the metal hardware to start rusting, and makes the denim look kinda yellow. that, and to avoid overstretching, is why i wash so much.

Skull 5010x 6x6 (one-wash)sz. 31 @ 3.5 months. They're too big for me so I only wear them to work really...they're pretty fucking dusty, surprised they look blue in the pictures. The lap is covered in dust/dirt from work. There's also a little blood on them but I don't think you can see it.

I soaked them when I got them trying to shrink some, one hot soak when they were pretty brown, and spray of cold water once I think.

Traintracks, they're visible down most of the legs

They're too big (for my liking). I wear them to work everyday. I needed a belt from the get-go and they didn't shrink. Too stubborn and impatient to return and order the right size.

I don't wear tight jeans:

11 days, no wash. As for the knuckles... well, I thought I was the only awesome genius to come up with the idea... oh well. Planning to keep it there for a month then removing it. Hopefully a wash a few months later will bring out a subtle fade.

The knuckle should make for a good story in the end since it is a highly illegal concealed weapon that I'm carrying everyday in a major metropolitan city. Ooooooh risky!

The knucks are a little too affected for my liking.

PRPS, right? Loose jeans can have some pretty nice honeycombs.

Yea PRPS. The knuckles are overly pronounced in that photo because of the angle of the flash. I'll probably keep it in there till this weekend and maybe finally remove it, then a new photo.

I'm hoping a wash at the 6-8 month mark will complete a subtle knuckle fade for me. I'm not looking for a super white outlined fade, that would just be shitty.

these bitches are brand new...just worn maybe twice for a couple hours.

they're gonna look like this for probably the whole summer. i'm not about to foul up some brand new pants, by sweating my ass off in the 100 degree summer and not wash my jeans. lol.

Jun 28, 2007 @ 00:32
hey lurker i thought bout doin brass too but decided against it cuz id get harassed by pigs even tho concealed weapons are legal here
i did a wrench instead

APC New Standards. Ive been wearing them everyday for about 2 months i think?? I got em in a 25 (yeah i know fucking skinny) There still small on me. I should of gotten a 26 or even 27. There stretched out to about 26-27 now but the waist is still a bit tight for my liking.





Jun 28, 2007 @ 17:38
those are very nice. gonna wash them anytime soon or some more wear?
Jun 28, 2007 @ 17:43

Jun 28, 2007 @ 17:50
