The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

The crotch of my hemps is starting to form these light blue/almost white spots, which will probably turn into holes in a few months and later on into crotch blow. Im considering about giving them a cold soak to prevent the blow-out from happening in the future or at least to give them more time. My only concern is that I have worn them for only 3.5 months and usually my jeans haven't touched water before 6-12 months of wear. Any thoughts or advices? Maybe from now on I'll give my new raws an initial soak or something...
Give them an inside-out soak. I doubt you'll notice any change in color.

The color loss isn't really my main concern since I'm thinking about a 30min soak in cold water, I'm more afraid that the soak will shift the creases since they have had so little time to settle. But cold soak inside out would slow down the tearing process in the crotch area right? Thanks for the input!

To anyone that owns the skinny guy black power stretch. if i wash the jeans will there be less of a shine? if not what should i do

my skinny guys aren't tapered enough from the knee down. If i take it to the tailor is there any way to avoid the selvedge line being ruined?

Yes, soaking will help, and NO if won't shift any creases. Just don't crumple your jeans. Lay them flat or folded in half in a tub.

Yes, taper from the inside (which requires better tailoring skill), not the outseam (which requires more skill).
Even if you taper from the outseam, there's an easy fix for it

Look back in the thread, this question has been answered many times... But just tell them to do an inseam taper, and make sure you emphasize the word inseam.

Inseam =/= inner seam. I'd specifically tell them you wanted your jeans tapered from the knee down using the INNER seam and show them what you mean. That, or take/send them somewhere that specializes in altering denim.
Jan 17, 2013 @ 15:22
Ok thanks that was my first thought, then I also read somewhere that tapering from the innerseam can pretty mess up the shape of the denim and cause it to be awkward. Is this true?

if its not done right yes

Do weird guys fit like apc ns or ps?

never owned apc ns but I tried em on once and they fit just like my weird guys did. I ended up getting my weird guys tapered cuz they were too baggy from the knee down.

I own both and I would say Weird Guys fit very similar to APC New Standards.

Jan 20, 2013 @ 04:03
Stellar post some pics! I love the denim but wish I had a pair that fit better.
Jan 20, 2013 @ 06:58
Anyone have any pics of faded deep indigos? You dont see too many, specially really great ones.
Jan 20, 2013 @ 23:01
Should you buy a size smaller?

I found them here on the marketplace. I found a thread made nearly a year ago and my friend who owed me money bought them for me.

So the heavier the denim the faster they fade? Or is it the lighter denim that fades faster?
Jan 22, 2013 @ 01:50
This is like the 5th wear they stretched quite a bit more. I feel that they are still stretching to.

Just throwing this out there to see if anyone with the same problem can offer some advice.. Happens with all dyed and unwashed denim, but hasn't really been addressed here.

Some of the indigo dye on my N&Fs rubs off onto the shoe tongue. Not a problem on darker shoes, but on the white tongue it can be sort of a hassle. Warm water and soap has been my go-to, and prevents the problem depending on what surface your stain is on.

Edit: After searching around a bit more it seems that this problem is basically unavoidable. Gonna go with the "tape your cuffs" trick and see how that works.

Try taping the cuffs. You can also spray water repellent on your denim and the area where your denim meets your shoe. They both worked for me.

You could always try a soak and get ride of some of that excess indigo. Also, what kind of shoes are we talking? I've had a lot of luck cleaning my white canvas Purcells and Vans by doing an overnight OxyClean soak.

anybody here who owns a pair of Deep Indigos and Japan Heritage and thinks, just like me, that the JH fade a lot easier/faster than the DI?

The JH already show some slight fades after like 30 days of slight wear. In comparison the Deep Indigos needed like 2-3 months to look like this..

I think it's just the deep indigos. I have been thinking exactly the same about my hemp blends :D.. They have faded more in less than 4 months than deep indigos did in almost a year of wear.
