Thanks for sharing that... now I don't feel so bad when I get caught petting and cuddling my rolled up jeans

Wow, everyone in this thread seems to have a game plan when it comes to denim!

Divide and conquer. No cuddling, men. This is war.

One pair that I wear. On occasion I'll bust out the ol' Nudies or 5EPs.

3 pairs, but I bought 3 more (the tailor was shortening them), so I'll have 6 in rotation by next week.

I am wearing my Jean Shops 4 days a week (1.5 months) and my RRDS for 3 days a week (these are about ready for a wash. 7-8 months old). I will on occasion wear my SC 47s or LVC47s on the weekend depending on the mood.

One pair, with another pair for when the alpha pair just reeks.

I'm curious. If you wait that long to wash your jeans... is there a dramatic change before and after the wash? My guess would be that you'd get a totally outrageous fade with top-notch whiskering, chevrons and fat cows. Or is that wishful thinking on my part?

currently (last 7-8 months) im wearing my julian red nikkis 5-7 days a week and i wear a pair of "de-branded" h&m slim sliq when im not wearing those (best cheap jeans EVER). i also have a pair of white 501s, vintage 501s and a pair of stretch 517 orange tabs that get some infrequent wear.

when i skate i wear an old pair of diesel fankers that are very tight but super stretchy, a pair of random vintage levis, or my sliqs.

just recently retired a pair of diesel rabox that id been wearing for about 5 years due to recurring crotch holes and the fact that they seem like flares compared to my julians.

i have a deadstock pair of o tab 517s and a fresh pair of the h&ms that i altered to fit super skinny waiting in the wings for now. im also trying to track down another pair of nikkis or hobokens no wash.

but honestly most of my jeans just sit in a drawer or in various piles and boxes around my house. i have a lot of jeans that ive never worn but im a denim/salvation army junkie.

So let me get this straight. All you people DO NOT wash your jeans for months at a time? Why???? Excuse my ignorance, I'm new to this.

I basically alternate between a pair of Howies OSD and RRL lowrise bootcut. It works for me because one is baggy while the other is tight (I won't euphemize here by calling them "relaxed" and "slim," they're baggy and tight, dammit). That way there's actually a reason not to wear one or the other exclusively (i.e. some outfits call for baggy jeans while others call for a tighter fit), over and above the goal of trying to develop an attractive fading pattern in 2 pairs at once.

This is actually quite hilarious. I never thought what would happen if someone from outside just stumbled in on these conversations and noticed that almost everyone on this forum don't wash their jeans for extended periods of time. It is like a cognitive dissonance from both perspectives. Cuz, we are like, "Dude you don't know?" And they are just flabergasted that people would not wash their jeans for months on end. Cuz it really is quite unordinary and absurd at face value to not wash the jeans.

To answer the question shortly. The jeans fade with higher contrast if you don't wash the jeans a lot. This is an alternative to buying prefaded denim. There are more detailed answers if you read some of the other threads.

I lie to everyone at work and tell them I dry clean my jeans every weekend. To be fair, I shower 3 times a day because I workout so much, so I think that helps control odor. None of my jeans give off any noticeable funk.

I think since our bodies give off pheremones (that natural, invisible odor that attracts potential mates), the unwashed denim will hold those juices, making the wearer totally hot and irresistable. As soon as you wash your jeans, you become a skanky hobo.
