Does holding out on washing make the jeans more likely to blow out at the crotch?

Crotch blowout is just due to abrasion.

This might be a dumb question but i have been into jeans for a while now and i still dont have an answer. How can you tell the quality of denim. I have had all sorts of jeans over the years and i dont know how to tell how the quality of each pair is.

Is it a bad idea to use the dryer on high to dry your jeans? Im trying to shrink my BSPs some more even after 2 hot soaks.

will coin purses or coin pouches mess up my raw denims if i put them in my front right pocket?
it seems like im growing whiskers on my jeans but my right front pocket is forming a squared shape of my coin pouch.
how will this affect the long term of me wearing my raw jeans?

u'll have a fade in the shape of the pouch

so i work maintenance at a golf course for the summer. its like semi labour intensive sometimes. sometimes on my knees the bunkers fixing under tarps and lots of walking and stuff. i have a pair of wesc selvage denim that i wore for 8 months than washed and there really is not much fading and i havent woren them since the wash cuz im kinda over fit and sleep once i get home from work. think if i wore them to work they would get completely destroyed? or should i go for it.

does anyone know if i should soak my huf demin!?!!??!!?!?! cause im debating!
May 12, 2010 @ 18:47
does washing a pair of raw denim early completely fuck up your progress?
May 14, 2010 @ 04:56
no need to soak the huf jeans

pyramid is that a real question?

got a question about tailoring, i have slim fit UJ's and there a 35x32

the thing is i think the leg opening is slightly to wide, and id like to get them tapered.


they are just over 8 inches wide, how much should i taper them?

Currently I'm wearing APC Rescues size down 2, but they look stupid if I dont sag, and im tired of sagging.
I wanna buy new jeans, and im debating on getting Nudies Average Joes, are those bigger? I can't find a size chart anywhere, and there is no store around me that sell denim, so I can't try them on.
May 18, 2010 @ 01:24

So I have a pair of levis 514 and haven't washed them for 6 months. There is good creases and whiskers but no fading. I bought them too big to begin with so there is some sagging, should I wash or soak to get rid of the sagging?
May 18, 2010 @ 18:12
lol people always asks why dont u wash them

They aren't even raw so wats the point, won't hold creases, fading will take at least a year of straight wear, and they are already sanforized so soaking or washing would be pointless besides for actually cleaning

I tried to search but I couldn't find it.. what setting do you use to wash your raw denim?

Like Handwash, cold, warm, etc.
Also, should I let it go through the whole cycle? (spin, rinse, etc.)

to make a long story short, i acidentally rubbed my ass on rocks and now i got an ugly ass fade. everywhere is indigo and then there's 2 huge ass white/light blue parts on my ass. it looks homo.
is there someway to re-dye those parts or at least make it not ass visible?

I got some Nudie Big Bengts sized down 2 and was woundering if these types of Nudies fade well, or if nudies in general fade good or bad?

Edit: They're size 32

Yea son Ive never fucked with doing this to denim before and I want to know ahead of time.
I have no knowledge on the basis of doing this to my jeans.

Another thing I gotta ask is if theres any way to just make my jeans tighter without shrinking the waist and length besides getting them tapered.

nudies typically do fade well especially the regular ralfs from what ive seen. Obviously there are more unique and better fades on other jeans. Nudies can get washed out pretty easily too from what ive seen. If you didnt know the quality on nudies arent at the same level as other brands( eternal, samurai, LVC, etc.)Nudie Bengts will fade.

You should checkout mynudies (google it) im sure somebody there has some progress on big bengts.

How should I go about sizing on Rogue Territory Slim Straights?

I picked up some Marc Jacobs X Wrangler jeans about a month ago. I really like the color and they fit perfectly. I'm wondering if I should soak them to get better fading, but I really don't want them to shrink at all. So what should I do? I'm thinking I should just wear the fuckers and wash em at about 7 or 8 months, is this a good idea?

I have had multiple pairs of stfs and a pair apc rescues that didn't turn out so well in the past...I wore em for 6 months and washed em and saw almost no fading.....

Can anyone help me out...Thanks in advance

soaking wouldnt really give you better fading, because the early dye loss will hurt the fade contrast later on
