Small DENIM Questions Thread

Jun 02, 2012 @ 18:29
So, i have a few small questions dudes
I measured some jeans, and my waist and front rise are throwing me. I followed Context Clothing's advice for sizing, and my waist came out to be approximately 14 and a quarter inches. My question is, should I double that when purchasing a jean, opting to go for the smaller size (taking a 28 over a 29, for instance), or following APC sizing and going two down.
Also, I'm fiending over the latest SExI12, and the front rise is a little taller(longer? ) than i measured on myself. My question for this, is if that will make a huge difference in the way the jean wears or not, and if there is any way to combat that.

Also, does anyone else encounter the problem of a small bulge in the crotch area (small bulge teehee)? like, the denim fabric bows or bulges up along the zipper. it seems to happen to all my jeans.

Anyone know if it's alright to iron your jeans to restart the creases? My friend's lookin at a pair of cheap sams but the creases are lookin ugly as fuck.

Hey guys. Just wondering, has anyone been able to wear out their raws while maintaining a really slim fit and keeping a nice hug on the bum? I'm at about 4 months on my N&F elephant 2s and they've just become baggy in the legs, and my ass looks like im wearing a diaper. I'm considering a new pair of raws (leaning towards APCs) that will maintain a tight slim fit that will hug my bum really nicely.

Help anyone?

do whiskers come about by how tight the jeans fit or just how you sit?

I am looking for a very dark indigo slim/straight jean. Which would be better: s0500xx or s710xx. One problem is BiG is out of stock on s0500xx until August. Basically I am wondering if the s0500xx would be the better fit and if it’s worth waiting.

1. Which one is darker?
2. Which would have the slim/straight look I am looking for better?
3. Which size should I get if my true waist is 32? ( accounting for stretch after the hot soak)

For some reason the forum is glitching on me and I can't see any responses after February in the Denim Care thread so I thought I would ask here. Bought some denim that was on sale online, was wondering if it would be safe to store it as it is in the packaging without risk of too much fading. It was a pretty good deal and couldn't really pass it up at the time.

Can anyone tell me how the Flathead z3005 fit? If I want a slim straight fit? Thanks.

asked this in the other thread, I got henny and beer on my st-100s..should I was em? only been wearing them for about 30 wears or so

^ a soak won't do any harm, try not to agitate (only loose indigo will wash out anyway)
Jun 29, 2012 @ 17:57
^say if I didn't do anything at all and kept wearing them, would my denim be harmed in any way?
Jun 29, 2012 @ 22:25
end of the day they're a pair of jeans, man

if they don't smell then it's up to you i guess

I think that stains like these makes your jeans more personal to you, just go with it and rock it! dont wash them! haha

When point of the fading process are you supposed to wash your jawnz?

And is the washing process pretty much consist of cold water, inside out, and hang dry?

it depends on how much wearing you've put into your jeans, the guideline is 6 months. as for the washing it's up to you lol just stay away from the drying machine

Does anyone know if these are sanforized or unsanforized?

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=24221806

It states on a sticker included that 'This pant is unwashed and will shrink up to 5% after the first wash. It may also dry and wet bleed'.

I ask because my searching online about Cheap Monday denim usually says its sanforized and doesn't need a soak.

Any help would be good.

^I cant answer your question, but if its not too late, i'd rather get unbrandeds from urbanoutfitters than cheap mondays. Way better quality and same price range.

For ocean soaks, after i rinse it with clean water, would they still smell like ocean? would i have to soak it again in some detergent?

There's a reason why this thread is called the "Small DENIM Questions Thread" Dont ask questions about those. And im pretty sure no one on this forum even fucks with those pants.

Cheap Monday is sanforized.
I would return them, I rather have 100% cotton denim, and not cotton/elastane.

just gave my samurai's a second soak, trying to keep the creases as they were, and samurai's get stiff as fuck after a soak or wash, so you think that if i were to pack them in my luggage, to have them flattened, would I be left with some weird folds in the places where its folded or would I be better off wearing them onto the plane?

you should be fine as long as the jeans don't move around too much while in luggage. But, why not just wear them onto the plane?

im flying to the middle east, so its going to be crazy hot out of the plane, so I thought shorts and some loafers would be a good and more comfortable idea, rather than some heavy denim that at this point is quite abrasive.

Thank you for your perspective.
