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.

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 =)

i threw mine in the washer w/ tooooo much detergent after too short a time span. big mistake.

your best bet is to do a soak. detergents like tide, all, etc., are designed to really get dirt out. they're tough, they get off grime, thats why they're such common household items. unfortunately, when used on raw denim, tide will end up taking all the dye out. if you do a warm soak, the heat of the water will still remove dirt/smells from the jeans, but its gentle, so it wont strip the indigo/dye.

Nudie Slim Jim Dry Japan Indigo. Bought in early October 06

On average, worn around 4 times a week on and off



One Month



Added this sawn off bit of tubing for the snuff tin effect, wasnt too impressive but made the jeans look a bit more unique


Two Months




Around 4 Months wear





Some shots during the 4 Month mark



6 Months. Pre-Wash shots









Rivit missing









After the wash







I was hoping the honeycombs would show up more but the dry japans are pretty soft from the start. Theyve shrank quite a bit, i didnt downsize from the start so waist size was always a bit on an issue, they now fit much better.
