My flathead seem to be like fluffy like the fluff you get on knits anyone know why?it's the first time i've seen this cotton fluff on jeans and anyone know anyway to pevent bleeding on shoes and shits my white shoes are now blue

^ The fluff is characteristic of many raw denim fabrics - they'll disappear in time. And you can't really prevent bleeding, unless you do a heavy machine wash - it's part of the package deal. It'll bleed on upholstery, your hands, your belt, your wallet, etc...

No worries, glad to help out a fellow Melburnian. Don't worry, indigo is beautiful, the more the better!

Depends on the denim, the dyeing process, the amount of dye that's the fabric is holding, etc

The ROY's I'm sitting in right now doesn't bleed much at all, even when it was raw. The SC40300 which is hanging next to me, however, kept bleeding for 6 to 8 months even after multiple washes (it was hank-dyed to the core with natural indigo, so...)

Proxy Question

I'd like to order a pair of Skulls with the red tab. There are those who post here and elsewhere who have accomplished this by negotiating the language barrier, placing an order with a Japanese retailer and paying for extra shipping. I just emailed FabFour and was told they couldn't export jeans with tabs, but that they could send the 'cross' version, like those sold at BiG/SE/etc. Is there anyway to go about this? do I have email somebody in particular? Is ordering via proxy the only other option?

I know read that (somebody at) FabFour did this, but am not sure if I'm misinterpreting something. Thanks

so don't do it. this question is kind of like complaining on a Harley Davidson forum about how loud they are.

At what point are your jeans too long/do you have too much extra fabric? I just got a pair back from the tailor and they still seem too bunched at the bottom.

With raw denim it becomes a lifestyle - after your first pair of artisan raw denim, you'll be wanting to get yourself some natural tan garrison belts, natural tan wallets, natural tan shoes, etc :P

Anyway, what I mean is, you'd eventually assemble a new closet to match these Japanese raws if you get deep into the hobby - these new stuff you have will look even better (in your eyes) with a bit of indigo staining.

I personally prefer the look and texture of the denim when it's relatively new - fading nicely with age is a big bonus, but it's not why I buy them. So for me, the denim looks good after the first soak

Should I soak my LVC 1955's? I usually don't soak my denim and it ends up being fine but will I regret it when I finally do wash it. I should be able to lose an inch or 2 no problem, except maybe in the thigh.

Long shot, but would anyone know the approximate measurements of these DBSS jeans in size 48? The site they're on doesn't give measurements.
