The Unbranded Brand Jeans - Page 63

Yup that seams about right. Mine don't look nearly as good as those but they are probably one of the fastest fading jeans iv come across. What do u guys think gives them such great fading times? I'm gonna get mine up in a bit.

damn.looks great. i better start wearing mine more. they started faded a bit after just 10 wears. they arent my main jeans at this point though

Yea the denim fades like the diesel turbo denim. I'm gonna put these down once my sz 33's get back from a hem job. These will do well in the HWDC 2 competition I entered. I just wish they came with a smaller hem ..that would make these a lot cleaner looking.

I still wait my 21oz taperred ub.. Cant wait for that.. And i have question.. Is down 1 size will be too tight? Or just fit?
post #936 of 1457
for me down one size is pretty tight in Unbranded jeans. They are tight in the waiat for me but everything else fits fine. It all depends on where ur normal problem areas are.

I've been interested in these, but now that I see you all talking about how fast they fade, I'm less interested. Sounds like they'd get too light too fast, and I want them to stay dark if I'm wearing them to work and such. Can you recommend a similarly affordable brand of selvedge jeans that doesn't fade so fast?

They are talking about the 21oz version. I think you are better off with the 14.5oz version. All indigo denim is going to fade unless it is specifically designed not to and dyed in a reactive dye. That is very rare.

 

The best way to "not fade" your jeans is to wear them less often. I mean, some people use the strategy of alternating between a few pairs of jeans. I myself will have some pairs that I wear when I know I'm going to be more active so that they fade, and then I have other pairs that I prefer to wear only to more formal occasions so that they stay nice and dark and clean.

I repeatedly asked in other threads what the options are for people who don't care about fades or whatever. Again, that stuff just smacks to me of fake authenticity -- my jeans don't need to tell a story about my life, or my whereabouts, because neither of them are that interesting. But after a lot of reading through this forum, trying to find both high weight (>13 oz) and non fading denim there are not grossly overpriced "fashion jeans" seems an exercise in futility; I guess because all the denimheads are younger and care about that sort of thing. I mean sure, I can understand that life is what it is and that all jeans fade, but with the enthusiasm that some display for pursuing "sick fades" I can't imagine that a lot of these premium denim-makers are exactly enthusiastic about finding ways to have their jeans keep the washes that they were sold with, and indeed would be more pushed towards having them fade faster.

Your comments sound like a troll, but I will bite. If you do not want defined fades, simply wash your denim more often. Creases will not settle and any fading will be more consistent through the entire denim. You can also go with a full garment dyed type fabric, meaning not rope dyed. A full garment dye has the same color to the core fo the cotton. You will see this more in chino type fabrics.
