i didn't wash my 3sixteens inside out so they have these vertical creases on them. anyway to fix it? 

post #19427 of 20699
if you ask me you could probably find a used pair of apc ns for just a bit more than those new levis if your lucky the same or cheaper.

aspasp did it fade where the vertical creases are? if not if you just wear them regularly it should fix itself if it faded then well... learn to get used to it overtime if it fades overall around that particular area it might look better. one of my pairs of denim did that before and it looked terrible until it faded overall then it just kind of blended in.

also love of god make sure the inseam length is your proper one and judging by the 32" inseam pic you posted you probably need a 30 min with a cuff.

The only pair of jeans I have that kind of fit OK, 33/30 of some off brand I got at Ross. Thought I was supposed to go with a longer inseam because looking at the WAYWT thread most people seem to have quite a bit of stacking above the shoe for instance.

 

Any specific suggestions on a brand/model? To put it bluntly I am a noob. Thanks a lot for responding though.

that denim is baggy if you ask me. what is your budget? you might be better of just browsing the market place for a used pair in your size.

it's slightly faded, some of it has gone away but i feel like it's here to stay

Budget? If I knew what fit properly I'd be willing to pay $220 for a raw selvedge pair or something (ie, 3sixteen list price).

 

If it helps at all, I'm 5'9", 30" inseam, 30" waist, ~37" hip, 23.5" thigh, 16.5" calf. *shrug* Those are all circumference by the way.

seems like you know your measurements the rest is up to you. you would just need advice on waist sizing because brands are different depending on true size and how much it stretches.

apc is good to start because you can buy it used in marketplace a lot of times. you really can't go wrong with slim straight leg because if you want to venture into tapering you can have them tapered later.

If you really want to solve this once and for all, the answer is easy.

 

Go to Blue Owl, you live in Seattle, it's in Bellevue - they know their stuff incredibly well and are one of the best shops you can find.  They have tons of denim from tons of companies - make the trip, have a good chat with them, and then try on what they suggest, I am 100% sure if you do this, you will find a great pair.

Hi guys, I just got a pair of MIJ dark-washed selvedge from Dior, and im really loving the color and how the denim feels.

 

Just a question though, since im so new to all this denim stuff, I basically broke the bank for this pair and I want the denim to last, and the color too. It says handwash inside out, so my question is do I wash it every six months to keep the denim in good condition? I'm afraid the denim becomes too soft if I keep washing it. But yet I want the color to keep. 

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

so here's the info about washing denim: the longer you go w/o washing the more fading you'll see but the faster the jeans will break down in terms of blow outs, holes, etc. if you don't want the color to fade, wash it often....cold water if you want to minimize shrinking, warm or hot if you want to shrink the pants. i wouldnt worry too much about it becoming too soft if you keep washing it. it'll naturally get softer with wear.

I'm not sure that washing prevents fading (the opposite, I believe) - washing more often reduces the contrast of the fades, which is different. If you really want to minimize color loss, my understanding is that you're better off having them dry cleaned instead of laundering them. That said, that has always struck me as overly fussy for jeans -- aside from the additional cost.

if you worrying about them fading just hang them up on your wall never wear them and instead buy a pair of h&m denim. wear those while admiring the denim on your wall problem solved.

I believe the theory is that long stretches (no pun intended) between washings promote the development of microbes or similar critters that weaken the denim.
