I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1305

Does denim that says Dry Clean Only really have to be dry cleaned?

 

I've got a Freedman denim shirt which I never really wear because I don't want to pay to wash it every time and it traps any environmental smells. The material is similar to http://i1.farfetch.com/10/06/54/71/10065471_348477_800.jpg (without the leather). It's smooth almost to the point of having sheen/luster 

 

Also a pair of Marc Jacobs skinny jeans (2% elastane I think)

 

Do I need to follow their instructions or can I just cold wash and hang dry? My only concern is potential shrinking, they both fit well.

as long as they're not unsanforized or shrink to fit, you'll be fine with a cold wash and hang dry.

Went to the store to exchange the 26's, but they said they didn't have them (27's) anymore. They called me back when I got home, though, saying that it was in the wrong stack. Didn't want to go to SF again what with the heat and the cramped BART due to pride week, so I had them shipped (which is why it took a while).


27 PS:









here are the 26's again for reference:








I feel like a 26.5 would've been the perfect fit if it existed.

Also, how are the stacks looking? Am I doing something wrong?

Keep the 27, wear a belt, be happy

The 27s look better tbh. If you actually do weightlifting workouts using the SS book your legs and waist will get bigger so you might wind up with the fit you wanted originally

27 for sure.

@Masshi

 

Like everyone else here said, get the 27s, unless you desire the painted and restricted fit.

Although I believe you're more likely to get some color loss over time from washing over time than from dry cleaning, if you care. But cold washing and using woolite dark or dr bronners can help mitigate that.

I own a pair of Naked and Famous broken twill selvedge jeans that I have worn for at least two months. I'm able to button the top button, but they are pretty tight in the waist; they also tend to rise up in the crotch area. I've stopped wearing them because they are so uncomfortable especially for a college student walking around campus all day. 

 

I know the best way to stretch jeans is to wear them, but it's quite unbearable. I saw this thread and was wondering if this is my best option: http://www.styleforum.net/t/151033/the-gizmo-denim-stretching-waist#post_2677924

 

If I did do this would the dye stain my bath tub?

 

Thanks

this would work but the rest of your jeans would shrink if you soak them in hot water. dye would definitely come off (more so with hot water than cold water) but it's not too difficult to get off of the tub.

I am looking to own my first raw denim. Unfortunately I can never find jeans that fit me. Above are a pair of tailored jeans for $45 from Dejour Jeans in Melbourne, Australia which have been hemmed and tapered. This was my first experience of well fitted jeans but to be honest I still don't think they look amazing on me. I have massive thighs but a 30 inch waist and short legs so they're basically stumps. 

 

Where can I get some well-fitted raw denim? Would Take5 in Hong Kong be a good destination to try on some jeans, or should I have a look at APC, Naked & Famous or Nudie in New York? Or is there something already of good value here in Melbourne, Australia for me? (I know Incu sells raw denim: http://www.incu.com/shop-men/designer/natural-selection-denim/taper-jeans-blue-rain/)

Max budget is $200.

 

Thanks

I would actually prefer for the denim shirt to fade. The sheen makes it look unused and prissy. I was mainly concerned about it affecting the weave/fabric integrity but it that should be fine.

acinod that fit looks fine in that photo for a tailored pair of jeans. if you went more tapered in the lower leg it would just show everyone how big the thighs are.
