No you don't need to soak first (to the guy above)

Damn I'm in a bind right now. Either wait and pay more for the Japanese denim, or get a pair of Grifters for $150.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

I would cop at $150.. & are you sure he's upping the price?

Damn, I just started wearing my N&F jeans a few weeks back.. hm.. I might cop a pair of these sale ones & keep it in the side until I'm done with my N&F's or keep 'em in rotation.

Definitely buy a pair if he has one in your size on sale. He'll be on the Japanese denim run for a while. The USA denim is a one time deal, not to mention you'll be getting it for cheaper.

Yeah I was originally gonna go with Skulls, but at $150 I can't resist for a pair of these.

I'll either get Rakers, Grifters or Slackers. Whichever has the right size for me. Hoping for a pair of Grifters.smokeyface

By the way, when does the sale start?

haha good idea jackandcoke.

I forgot but do we go TTS on his jeans, I know he had STF's which you go up two but I was never really interested in those.
So TTS?

^Yepp, he says it on his site to go TTS on the sanforized jeans

Just e-mailed him and messaged him on SuFu, hopefully he'll tell me when this sale starts.
What's the difference between getting the shrink to fits and sanforized? Better fades? Better fits?

Thanks!

Um.. I believe the STF is Sanforized like you said & the TTS is UNSANFORIZED

Originally posted by Inactive User
Sanforization is a process in which denim is treated and shrunk without affecting the color and qualities of raw denim. This means that when washed, the denim shouldn't shrink as much as it would initially, before the sanforization process. Instead, the denim should remain relative to its pre-wash measurements. Unsanforized pairs of denim don't hold such promise in retaining such dimensions; however, so it's useful try and educate yourself as much as possible before purchasing a pair.


So I believe the unsanforized denim stretches more as the STF's don't stretch. Cause if it stretched then shit, what's the point of shrinking it if its going to stretch back to its tagged size.

Actually I think that unsanforized is STF since it says how when washed it does not retain its regular shape.

And you would go TTS on these since sanforization is when the denim is shrunk initially before being sold. Someone who is for sure about this please say something.smokeyface

Word from Ande Whall himself:

Me:
Hi, I was interested in purchasing a pair of Rakers/Grifters from you. Could you shed some insight of when the sale will happen and if you have many sizes left in Rakers/Grifters. Thanks Andy, have a great day!

Ande:
Hi Joshua,
How are you. There will be a few sale pairs go on in the next couple of weeks, not so much a start and end kind of sale. Just keep an eye out on the store for any updates.

HUHHH?

Unsanforized = STF
Sanforized = Sanforized

TTS on sanforized pairs, size up on unsanforized pairs.

He'll probably have one of both just as he did before.
