Cold wash, hang to dry.

Edit: Right. I was assuming we were talking cotton. Wool gets aired out after wearing and brushed off if needed. Occasionally dry cleaned.

Thanks for the advice!

@Epaulet can trousers be purchased in the Vittorio without a corresponding jacket or only as part of a suit? If so, they'd be ~$280 by my calculation? Thanks!

For those that don't want the bleed or the color to change too much, I'd recommend treating them with some neutral cream or other to give as much of a protective shield as possible.  It might darken them slightly.  But one can't expect unfinished hide to remain that color.


Any pics of how yours stained?

 

Here is mine. After only ONE wear, and this is bout 2mins walking.....lol

Sanforized denim will still bleed like that? I should probably investigate this before wearing my RingRing's with some incoming suede shoes...

post #48172 of 57754
Sanforized denim definitely bleeds. I don't wear my nice suede boots with any dark denim, even if washed a few times.

And, @takashi78, I'll see if I can take a pic that shows the bleed, as it's much more slight than yours. Yeah, yours bled quite a bit, but you have an indigo weft going there.

Good excuse to get another pair of jeans :slayer:

This is part of the reason I prefer black weft denim when looking for the saturated look.  Have those been soaked at all? As I'm sure you know if you're buying high end denim, a good upfront soak/wash will help a lot with the bleeding. I've heard that adding some vinegar to the first soak/wash helps set the dye too. Not sure if that's true, but I've done it a couple times b/c..... why not?

 

If that pic you posted was after just a few minutes than you just have some heavy bleeding denim on your hands (or legs) and the soak isn't going to solve that - it will definitely help though.

Embrace the indigo bleed. It is part of who you are. When the indigo bleeds, that is your lifeblood sanctifying the shoe.

 that Ghost suede is fire! Don't think I noticed that one before. If I didn't already have a grey suede chelsea I would be all over those.

What's the ghost suede?

I was told an initial soak was not needed by the guys at SelfEdge.

Its a pair of Iron Heart 666 SII

I have worn it maybe 20times before soaking it and with some mild detergent. And a few rounds of just water rinsing.

 

The pic was after the wash and 1st wear.

X2 When i opened the medium.com page, the ghost suede slaps you in the face as awesome and the sleeper in the group.  Not sure how versatile they would are being lighter in tone.  But they look great.

Got it, didn't realize there was another name for it. Agreed, it's a pretty great color. In fact, it could make for a pretty rad jodhpur on the same last (hint, hint). mwink[1].gif
