Thanks. Something like this:

 

1. Put them in front-loading washing machine, let fill up with water for a minute, pause cycle, pour whole container of bleach directly into barrel. Continue cycle.

 

2. After cycle finishes, wash a couple more times with detergent to lessen chemical smell. Let dry and wear.

 

3. Decide want them lighter, so back to step 1.

 

(Repeat whole process 3 times.)

 

The fading turned out pretty even. No bleach splotches.

I have to use a strong pain relief creme which destroys the denim :-(

I doubt it...

They look great for summer, but the bleach destroys the denim and they wear out in no time..

I love them but I'd rather fade my own jeans:)

How much is the SL100 going to shrink in lenght after first soak?

I've just ordered two pairs of 3Sixteens, ST-120 and ST-130 which is a heavier weight denim than the ST-100. I am usually a 38 waist, but I have 35" APC's which stretched to 38", so I am hoping I can get away with a 36 (largest size offered) on the 3Sixteens.

Anyone have any experience, yay or nay, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

I've had 3 pairs of 14oz 3sixteens, but they didn't even last a year..whereas my Kurabo jeans and Pbjs are both coming up to the 2 year mark..

Good luck with the heavier weight:)

you need to explain why they didn't last a year....you have said in other threads that your pain cream eats through denim. your post could be very misleading for people who don't know about your "conditions" and thus hurt the brand.  be careful.

 

 

 

there is nothing weak with 3sixteen denim.  in my experience it holds up better than APC and Naked and Famous by far.  I'm going on 1.5ish years in my SL shadow selvedge jeans and there is no sign of weakness anywhere.  love them and will be sticking with 3sixteen going forward.

Nay, my friend. From my experience the 3Sixteen won't stretch nearly as much and aren't particularly vanity sized. I'd say check around until you come across your size. 3Sixteen goes up to a size 40, though the sizing chart on the brand's webshop only show up to size 36.

Based on this, I would size up to a 38, or you'll be really uncomfortable, especially if they shrink!smile.gif

Well, my 120x and heavyweight 130x, both ST, arrived today. The 130's measured 17 1/2" while the 120's measured 17. Oh no, I thought. But in trying them on, they're absolutely perfect. Tight, but not uncomfortable. Great weight to the denim. No pulling in the top block.

Thanks 3sixteen. You've made me very happy.
