Taking sleeve length from the shoulders (or the crown as it's known), is the best way to shorten sleeves. You can only take a small amount, and it does result in a slightly smaller arm hole though. Any real tailor will be able to do it, but yes it's not an easy job.

 

On jeans, I wash mine inside out on the most delicate cycle at 30 degrees, then put them on a slow spin cycle for no more than 1 minute to get the most of the water out, and then hang dry them. I don't usually use any washing powder to preserve the colour, especially if they're not particularly dirty.

guys thank you all for the input, I am still undecided as I dont want to lose that "deep" black the raw jeans offer, but maybe for this pair i'll throw myself into the deep end!

 

thanks again, much appreciated

How much can you take? I have a jacket that's about 4-5 cm too long in the arms. Any chance of making that work from the shoulder?

How dirty are they if they need cleaning? Why not just try the cold water and drying inside to reduce any fading?

just spot clean spit and rub

Isolar I've always been told an inch to an inch and a half can be taken from the shoulder. You might be able to make it work by both taking some from the shoulder, and a little from the wrist by cutting it up diagonally from the button side so as not to make the buttons look too close to the end of the arm.

i also think if you use vinegar it preserves the color.. look into that.

Agreed! My d02s fit great after a gentle cold wash. I lay them flat on a towel to dry.

i agree on the fittting better...but i am speaking strictly about the Black Raw denim....as it has never been "washed" it loses it's "clean" state of raw and once you wash they just become another pair of washed denim...i like the black of the raw, hence my hesitance on washing, otherwise i've washed my other jeans

Today....I never wear all Saint Laurent garments together but this time I thought it looked good; FW13 flannel and leather biker pants, SS14 brooch, SS15 cuff, chain and Santiag.

Looking sharp @slann01

Man, this forum is really making me consider buying some leather pants. Not sure I can pull them off on a daily basis, but they look great.
