do you soak denim before you wear it?
Originally posted by Inactive Userhey guys. iv had these raw 501's for a minute now and i dont know what to do about em. i hot soaked, wore em for a month, then got them tappered. they didnt seem like they streached at all over the last 3 months. but over the last week they have streached like crazy in the opening, leg, and thighs.(no im not getting fatter).
why is this happening all the sudden? what can i do to fix it.
I was in the chem lab today and for some reason I don't know how some chemical 6M NaOH mixed with concentrated HNO3 got on my APC's and I didn't notice it until I got home. Now that shit won't come off...fuck.
So I bought a pair of sz 30 N&F Skinny Guy's (Indigo Power-Stretch w/ Grey Fill)a couple weeks ago and have been wearing them most days. They're 95% cotton and 5% elastane. They fit good everywhere except the calves area, where the jeans like hug my legs and it looks really fucking homosexual. Will the calves area ever stretch out? Or do jeans only stretch out in the thigh area/waist? And also will the elastane also prevent any permanent stretching?
If not, how much should I try to sell them for? I bought them from like 170$ after tax.
And also, would N&F Deep Indigo Selvedge or Lightweight Selvedge (Both Weird Guys) fade better?
i recently washed my levi 511s in the washer...needless to say, they became stiff and a little smaller upon removal. but those two factors aren't really the problem since i expected them to happen after. upon taking them out, i noticed 2 line-idents on both legs of the jeans. what the fuck? not only did they look weird as fuck, they are weird as fuck. someone help me out?
How bad of an idea would it be to hem my Samurais which I have already been wearing for 9 months and washed once? Will it make the fading look weird, or really weird? Cause I don't care if it looks really weird, I've grown sick of the stacking.
