I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 702

post #10516 of 20856
Hey fellas,

I am kind of new to denim and recently purchased a pair of APC NS. As I have been wearing them I noticed that the color outdoors seems kind of light. At first I did not notice, but when comparing them to say nudies or edwins (since they are in a similar price range) they seem much lighter and almost shiny. Do APCs use a low quality indigo or does it get darker after the first wash?

Here's a picture of a pretty girl to grab your attention. I want a pair of (men's) jeans in a grey colour like this or similar. Not too slim.
Any recommendations?

Self Edge, Blue Owl and a place called Denim Doctors in LA all offer true denim-repair services, which you'll want if it's a crotch repair. Suggest you search threads for that or contact them directly.

APC denim is in fact lighter in color than most Japanese denim. It's not just the sheen of the denim or the starch causing that.

It probably has something to do with the quantity of dips in indigo, or the indigo dye and process. The better the indigo, and the more dips in the dye, the darker it becomes.

There's a devoted APC thread here too, which might give you more information.

That's actually a good contender for what I want, although they're out of my size. Thanks.

That was a great suggestion. That Maiden Noir line has some nice looking stuff. Thanks for turning me onto it.

Hi guys, I have been reading the posts on here and also searched specifically for info but haven't found much regarding what I am looking for. I do apologize if I have missed something and am asking the same questions.. I have just bought a pair of Spurr selvedge from Gilt. I went for my true waist size (as recommended by Mauro on a separate thread) and I think I made the right decision. Now..my question is - they are way too long for me so I'd need to alter the length. However, I am unsure as to when I should do it. I know I shouldn't wash them for 6 mths. Should I hem them first, wear for 6 mths, wash and have them shrunk, then hem them again? Or should I just hot/warm soak them from the get go and hopefully that'd shrink them once and for all then hem them? This newbie is rather confused... Any advice would be much appreciated!!! Thanks.

Soak 'em and hem 'em.

Thanks. Safe to assume that soaking once would maximize shrinkage or should I do it a few times? I'd hate to hem them then have them shrink more

Dryer on high

Jeans can shrink a little more even after a soak. And even after a soak and a machine dry. But if you at least hot soak them, you'll get 95% of the shrinkage done. Then hem.

It actually makes them crisp, as much or more than letting it air dry
