Serious Answer in Case the Guy Asking Actually Wanted to Know: When I bought my APCs, they came with this card outlining different approaches for washing the jeans. It went something like this. 1. Don't wash them for a year. Then dry-clean only. 2. Wash them with Woolite Dark on the gentle cycle cold. Line dry. 3. Wear them in the ocean. Basically, if you get raw denim, and you're like me and like how raw denim looks and feels, you don't want to throw them in the wash on a regular cycle with hot water and them put them in the dryer on high unless you want to DRASTICALLY change them. When I didn't know much about all things sartorial, I washed a pair of Shipley and Halmos jeans that way and it didn't turn out how I wanted.
