What are some sources for nice washed denim? I'm tempted to get some of the discounted Acnes off of Yoox but I have no idea how each of them fit. Or does anyone know where I can try on some Acnes in the Bay Area?

Wings + Horns does a couple of washed versions in their slim and straight cuts. Just picked up the worker wash myself and quite like them. Happen to be on sale at Roden Gray at the moment as well.

For some more predistressed jeans, I recently saw Kuro on Cultizm. Might be a nice choice

At that range, why not just go 45rpm or fully custom? Those are some pricey washes.

Speaking of washes, Jay at Blue Owl carries some good stuff that isn't really talked about on here. Hysteric Glamour, Man of Moods, etc. HG is really known for their washes but they're $$$.

I'm starting to really like the raw denim now. I actually don't want them to fade. Are there any brands that look like raw denim and are selvege but doesn't lose it fade. I know I can wear them less but I'm just curious if there are any denim like that.

I finally got my slim leg raw denim Stronghold jeans in the mail, and while they're pretty awesome, there's a bit of extra room in the seat and the things. Would soaking them in warm water shrink them up a bit in the right areas? I'd also be concerned about denim loss, but I guess I'm more concerned about getting the best fit possible.

Pure Blue Japan has a few NF (no-fade) varieties. Also if you initially soak your denim with a decent amount of salt, the sodium apparently helps to lock in color. I don't know how it works, but I've seen it work.

Thanks. Pure Blue is expensive. I think I'm just going to pick up a couple of extra pairs of N&F, APC, or Unbranded when they go on sale instead.

I've already hot soaked all my three pairs of raw denim once before I hemmed it. Would washing it with salt still work or is that for only the first soak?

FWIW as well, the GAP selvage can be had really cheap on sale and is very color-proof. I've had a pair for almost 3 years with no fading really present at all. I haven't abused them, but they seem more colorfast than many other pairs I have.

The salt-trick I'm sure would work at any time. The earlier on in life you apply it, I suspect the more color it will retain overall.

Ok great. I'll check on the GAP ones and I'll pick up some more Unbranded as they are on sale for half price right now in my area.

I have a pair of 3sixteen SL-100x that I washed since I spilled a ton of beer on them. I was wondering if it's time to think about sending it somewhere to have the crotch reinforced. Does it look like I might have a crotch blowout soon? They look fine from the inside.

A few of my jeans have been mistakenly iron on !

Now those pairs have a nasty straight iron line on them and even after a few washes the line does not get any fade or show signs of going away.

Am i screwed?
