The Official Edwin Denim Thread

[Quote] Yeah, I'll definitely wash it inside-out in cold water, with a good detergent [one specifically made for cold water]. And as little as possible. I mean, if some go months without washing their jeans [seems a bit excessive to me, but I will not question!], surely I can go a few weeks. blushing

The Official Edwin Denim Thread

[Quote] That's what I thought, I just wanted to be absolutely sure before I washed them [they are my new pride and joy]. I'll definitely wait as long as I can, though, as I don't want the colors to fade much. I have a trip coming up in a week, so maybe I'll wear them off/on until a day before, give them a wash, and have them nice and clean for the travel. ^_^ Thanks again for assistance, guys!

The Official Edwin Denim Thread

[Quote] Wow, 8 months? I knew raw jeans needed to be worn a decent amount of time prior to the first soak/wash [so the fades and such can set in], but I thought the ones I purchased were already washed [and hence, most of the fading/shrinking already done]. But you all are the experts, so I will trust your opinions! Thanks for the response. It's greatly appreciated. ^_^

The Official Edwin Denim Thread

Greetings all. I need your help quickly, with something, if it's not too much trouble. blushing I just received these Edwin jeans today: en.item.rakuten.com/bruno/17062/ and I absolutely LOVE them. Absolute perfect fit for me [Size 28], both in the length and the waist. However, these are the first real set of "high-end" jeans I've purchase [normally spend around $60 on them, tops], so I'm curious to the best way to ash them to minimize fading, as well as shrinkage. I was thinking I'd wear them for a week or so, and then do a cold wash in the washer and let them air dry. Does that sound sufficient enough? Sorry. I know I'm a "Jean Newbie", I just want to make sure these last [and look great] as long as possible. Thanks for your time, guys!

[Quote] Hmm, still a size issue, hmm? Well, the jeans I'm wearing now are a 31", and they're not too loose with the belt [29" is my preferred waist size, but 30" is good as well], so even if it stretches to a 31" [or even a little more], I should be alright. And with a hot pre-soak [and then thrown in the dryer afterwards], it should shrink them a tiny bit, shouldn't it, even if they've already been pre-shrunk? If not...I could always sell the jeans to one of my "larger" friends. I'm sure they'd take them off my hands. I just really like the style of these jeans. I need to make it work somehow! And thanks again for your response. This forum is great for getting help. blushing

[Quote] Perfection, thanks so much for the reply. I should have expected as much, considering how cheap they were. I think I found a new pair of jeans that might suit me better, and they even offer a free hem if I desire it. en.item.rakuten.com/bruno/17062/. I know these typically go two sizes larger than their tag, so a 28 would be a 30, but I wear a belt, and they might shrink A BIT after my first wash, so it should be good. Although, the model in the picture is about my height, and are wearing the size 28, so maybe the length might be perfect for me. And I know Edwin is generally a pretty good brand. Maybe not to the quality of the Samurai Series, but I really don't have $300 to spend on jeans right now. smh I thank you again for the reply. I'll have to bite the bullet and pay shipping twice, one for these jeans, and another for a very nice jacket I have my eye on. Oh yes...it will be an expensive month, but I must have them! blushing

Hello everyone. Jean newbie here, reporting for duty. Nice to meet you all! I shall cut right to the chase. I'm really interested in picking up these jeans I saw on Rakuten's website. Below is the link to them: en.item.rakuten.com/kamainj/10007588/ The only thing is, they're listed as being part of the "Samurai Series" under the item tag [and I hear they are simply incredible jeans], but in the item listing, I see them being called as "DPSR". Now I'm not sure if DPSR are an "off-brand" from the Samurai Series or not, but I'd really hate to spend the money on a sub-par pair of jeans I thought were part of the Samurai Series line. Also, I noticed they are listed in size, from Small to Extra-Large, and not the traditional 29, 30, 31, and so on. I'm a 29 waist [and preferably 32 length or so], so which of the selection should I choose if I were to purchase them? I did the conversion, and it seems that Small would be the closest match to me [I'm not a huge guy at all], but then, I heard they like to shrink quite a bit with the pre-soak... One more thing [I promise, do not harm me for my lack of intelligence!]. If I were to order a few other items through the website [via various shops], would I pay seperate shipping fees for each, or would they group them all into one shipment [for those familiar with the site]? Since it's coming all of the way here to Canada, that would be quite the unsatifactory event. I thank you for your time, Jean Guru's. I await your response, if you'd be so kind. *Vysethevaliant sits cross-legged as he anticipates the enlightenment.* Edit - Ah! It appears I already got an answer to my shipping question. Seperate charges, hmm? May have to just order the jeans for now... Now if I can just figure out if these DPSR jeans are good quality or not, I can place my order. blushing
