yeah, my mom made a sound like she was choking when she found out how much my new denim cost winter before last (somet 003s)
Just got through hot soaking 2 pair of raw denim. Tellason (14.5 oz cone sanforized denim) and Outclass (about the same weight, dunno the mill, most likely sanforized).
30 minutes in the sink, rinse with cold water. Line dry.
Both pairs went down a size, which is fine, because I bought them a little loose.
The soaking water was disgusting, especially for the Outclass jeans. My hands were sticky afterwards, and not in a good way.
So, in summation, buying jeans a size up (maybe even two, if the denim is loosely woven and unsanforized) and hot soaking them is all kinds of good.
It depends on the denim/wax. I've had a pair of Givenchy's get leathery again after like 4 washes. Most others became dull after the first. Where them a little and if they dont just rewax them.
IME they'll get waxy again (I had nudies)
