I have over 210 pairs of jeans in my collection, some worth in excess of $5 grand.
my latest acquisition
So.. did you wash yet..?
That article was featured on mynudies.com over a year ago and that clueless kid was the laughing stock of the forums. You can try to justify being hygienic and not wash jeans or bathe as long as you want, chances are if you need to google studies from the university of alberta to tell you it's okay to wear smelly pants, it's probably just time you wash your damn jeans already.
The reason they don't smell to you is because you've gotten so used to the smell that you're oblivious to it, believe me everyone around you can smell you coming a mile away. I was like you a long time ago, until I realized this whole washing thing was a fad and after going through several pairs of raw jeans (nudies, iron heart, apc, rrl, sugar cane, samurai, lvc, post blue japan, evisu, list goes on and on) I learned first hand washing made jeans look better, feel better and last longer and the end result was they all faded beautifully.
Not got round to washing them yet but i'll probably do it over the weekend and put up the pictures. The study was quoted on the BBC over the past couple of days because of the new denim book coming out next week.
Thank you RRL CLOTHING for blessing me with all your advice and opinions.
