Yeah the thing I hate about Cheap Mondays is that their back pockets are MASSIVE. Apart from that they are pretty good for the price.

I got a pair of Dry slim jims in the mail should arrive early next week. blushing I'll post pics when I wear them in tongueface

Guys that's why people usually have a rotation of some sort . Whether it's switching out raw pairs every few weeks or not wearing your projekt jeans on the weekends so they can get some air , your jeans won't stink if you give them time off once in awhile or rotate them .
Of course you must practice proper bodily hygiene as well .
Funny thing about my denim projects is I have 3 pairs in rotation , and possibly a 4th soon and that means I won't be washing any of them for at least 2 years ( 6 months split between the 4 )

In terms of raw denim, the fading and distressing comes from the natural progression of wear over time.

Here are my slim jim dry japans. Worn for around purchased 5months ago and worn around 3/4 a week. I really fucked up from the start as i went a slightly too big with the waist. Ive really gone off the fit recently but i'll give them another month of hard wearing before i wash them.






Got these Dior 21cm's on friday for a great price, didnt plan on buying them but couldnt resist the bargain. They fit me great and stack beautifully but the leg opening is a bit too wide for my liking so im guna see if i can get them taken in slightly, if not i'll sell them and get some 19cm's.

I feel you washed your jeans too much, but they're yours so do your thing.

my jeans never smell funny at all, and i never wash them.
just let them catch some air outside and all bad smells will fade away.


the smell might be gone but you've probably accumulated a lot of sweat and other dirt or food even in one month so its not really only about smell

you'll attract ants =)
