hey modernart, just wondering but why'd you choose unbranded for such an extensive project? why not something better known to fade, or something with a little bit more craftsmanship and quality?

I think he started doing it because unbranded's fading properties aren't documented much. So far looks like they fade just as well as any other denim of higher 'craftsmanship and quality'

I'd say they fade the same..I've had mine for nearly a year. The only downside is when you get them to that point the denim is so thin it feels like it's about to blow apart at the crotch lol

^^ that is beautiful! i've had mine 6th months, and my crotch wear is like 4x yours. any solutions or prevention for it? they look like yours.

have you soaked them? washing/soaking keeps your jeans healthier, but at the same time you risk the deep contrast in the fades. it's a toss up, longer lasting jeans or quicker lighter fades. if you have soaked them and stuff, repair the blowouts as fast as you can so they don't keep growing until your balls are hanging out lol

not really any tips, I guess it depends on what you do in them. I just sit/walk in mine pretty much. I've soaked twice and washed twice.

You should probably go and get some preemptive crotch reinforcement. Pretty cheap and it'll prevent an embarassing blowout in public

What is the consensus re: shrinking & soaking? I've read that these are sanforized, but they shrink anyways after a soak. If I do soak them, does it matter if I get them hemmed before or afterwards?
post #311 of 1501
All jeans will shrink after a soak whether sanforized or not - you will find that the waist will shrink 3-5% but if you go TTS you should have no problems with the waist. The length will also shrink minimally, between 0.5"-1". There's no issue with hemming them before you soak, but keep in mind you might want to leave 0.75" or so to cater for the shinkage.

Started my Unbranded back in November 9, 2010. It's been about 6 months, and I decided to do a cold soak. Indigo Skinnys, Size 33. Before waist: 33.4 in After soak: 32.2in Shrunk 1.2 inches. Soak in a bucket of cold water for ~3 hours. After, I agitated it a little bit, poured out that water (was nasty yellow from dirt and starch), refiled bucket, and stuck jeans inside just to rinse. Hung outside until dry. It was very stiff after drying, and could stand up by itself! I'm wearing them now, and they are getting soft with every way. Actually smell worse than before lol. Ok, now the pictures. Before Soak After Soak A little wrinkled, cause I shoved it into a buckle to soak. Will smooth out with wear.

Kind of hard to see the detail in the after shots, but it's looking good on the before shots. I would really recommend doing a proper wash with soap if it smells though
