Hey all, first poster here so be kind!
Basically, around 6 months ago I purchased a pair of used size 29 PS off ebay, I already owned a pair of GT Nudies which I was really enjoying breaking in and wearing but had decided that I would like a second pair of jeans that were perhaps a more skinny fit to wear every now and again. So after a few weeks of scouting I managed to pick up some PS sized down 2 for an absolute bargain, they arrived and seemed it good condition (perhaps not a perfect fit by any means (need a belt etc), but you get what you pay for!) and all was pretty much well.
My question is, that after 6 months of rotation with my nudies, they have now developed a nasty smell and are in desperate need of a wash... However, they have nowhere near the six months of dedicated wear recommended by most dry denim enthusiasts. Despite this they are very, VERY soft feeling compared to my nudies, I have no idea how many times they had been washed by the previous owner and after how long he had worn or owned them. Bearing in mind they had some subtle fading and the soft feeling when they arrived and I have personally probs given them 3-4 months of dedicated wear personally, would you suggest I give them a low temperature (woolite dark etc) wash now, or leave it a bit longer?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: also bare in mind I will probably only be able to purchase a brand new pair of PS for myself to break in, in at least 2 years I suppose... (Uni has sapped all my funds!)
