Small DENIM Questions Thread

Jun 02, 2010 @ 00:31
Is it necessary to soak jeans in full-length bathtubs? Or will like a five-gallon bucket or a sink suffice? I don't want any excess dye to stain my tube which has happened in the past. Does it matter if the jeans thus aren't fully extended?

Has anyone had any success with overdyeing denim? I recently bought a pair of Naked & Famous vintage blue weird guys and I'm not thrilled with the color in person. I was thinking that I would get used to it, and I've seen some really great faded pairs of the vintage blue, but I really don't want to take the time to get the color to a point I like. I had them hemmed cause I thought I would eventually like them, so they can't be returned. Considering overdyeing them black. Thoughts?

Guys I just copped some Girbauds, I sized up. I was wondering how long I should wait to wash and how I should wash them. I'm trying to get some good fades on them.

if u feel that u put enough wear, then wash it.
it does matter if u wash it instead of soaking. washing will get rid of more dye, blah blah blah.

and post some pics.

^^^^^^
just use ur gut man. denim isnt an exact science. they obviously wont get sky blue after one wash so u should be fine for a LONG LONG while man. i mean back before i really got into denim i had a pair of uniqlos n washed em almost every other day n they still have a rather dark blue hue. so ur good man.

so in the end just go with ur gut man.

No. Idk why so many people waste so much water in filling their bathtub. I just use the one from Home Depot (like $6 for the bucket and lid) and fill that sucker half way and let them go. If you want, you can shake the bucket to agitate. I use the same method for washing as well.

So for unsanforized raw denim, I should still give a hot soak and air dry right?

Do any stores still sell LVC 1947 501 RAW or are they discontinued or something?

I have a pair of Levis 511s that I've been wearing. They're a bit bigger than I would like so would a soak later on have any good shrinking effect?

does cuffing denim when first acquired cause it to rip

cause the crease is too defined due to the starch?

dont think so. probably depends on the denims ur using and the weight on them.

i.e. i got sum neighborhoods n theyre fine after about 6 months of wear cuffing for about half the time.

and just iron em n i dont see y the crease would be too defined.

which apc and nudie jeans are most similar to the 511s
Jun 11, 2010 @ 20:00
i put jeans in the freezer for over 12 hours

and they still smelled ????


seems counteractive but i find leaving them in the car through a hot day usually does the trick.

just air it out then.

; my nudie BBDH have .. i wouln't say stretched out, but the stacks are everywhere and seems a bit too big. I was wondering that if i got them hemmed, would i also have to ask them to taper it again, and wouldn't that look strange considering the thighs are more larger than the knee down area... Should i just fuck it and get APCs?

what is it called when you repair denim like this, rather than with a patch on the outside :

^with stitching on the outside.

what jeans are those?

where they from?
Jun 17, 2010 @ 23:36
I want a pair of blacks, but the search for a new and perfect pair of jeans is difficult and ongoing. I'm looking for a pair with a slim profile (comparative to my Flat Head BSPs, or maybe something a little looser, like 710s), that'll fade relatively well, and that has a long-ish inseam (36" + unsoaked). However, since I'm putting these into somewhat infrequent rotation with two other pairs of indigos, I don't want to spend a ton of money on them. Maybe $250 tops, but ideally sub-$200. I don't mind trolling around here and on sufu looking for a pair.
Any immediate suggestions? Skull 5050s maybe? 3sixteen? Weird Guys maybe? I really just have no idea where to start. Thanks
