They're jeans, it's not rocket science. Turn them inside out, wash at 30 or 40 degrees C, with some washing powder.

I wash them every few months or so inside out, but on cold (with washing powder) and then dry them in the sun. Will washing them on hot really make a difference?

Yes, it really will make a difference. Either wash them properly or throw them out, you don't want to be know as that dude who always stinks.

If you are anywhere near the Bay Area and love historic inspired workwear and denim check out this event: http://www.styleforum.net/t/356270/denim-bruin-san-francisco-august-1-3-celebrating-denim-and-workwear-made-in-usa/0_30

I'm looking forward to seeing some of Levis historic pieces and meeting some of my favorite denim brands.

Can anyone ID the jeans in the pic below?

post #19628 of 20767
too many details on the denim in that pic need a lot fewer to id them.

hard to tell but the longer back pockets looks like they might possibly be railcar spikes

Could they be Han's ? I think I see the big leather patch like these pictured

While waiting for a pair of Gustin jeans to get delivered, I tore my last pair of Lucky jeans (before anybody gives me crap, they're ~$30/pair at the outlet, fit better than anything else I've found for the price, and I've lost ~5" in the waist over the past year so I've had high pants turnover and haven't been able to justify spending more than that). After reading some stuff on here and at other places, I figured that Gap raw jeans would be an ok place to start, as I won't be too worried about ruining a $60 pair of jeans. I grabbed a 28x30 in their slim fit, and after a day of stretching they seem a bit big in the waist, but they don't sell any smaller sizes. I'm hoping I don't have the same problem with the size 29 Gustins. Would anybody here mind speaking to fit, and what I should look for?

 

Also, is playing frisbee in raw denim a bad idea? I often go right from work to pickup games, and don't always have gym clothes in my car.

Lucky jeans are just fine, don't put too much thought into that.  Bottom line, the key to denim is fit.  If you like them, wear em.  Also, play frisbee to your hearts content in your raw denim.  Perfect way to break in jeans.

Why not just wear the gap with a belt until your gustin gets there. Since it seems like you do not want to spend any more money.

This. Definitely not Han's though.

Edit: Might be a pair of Rogue Territory's if I see the patch right, resembles a feather at first glance.

Are there any jeans that stack particularily nicely? My only pair of raws is a united stock dry goods 5pocket, and while its a nice, somewhat loose fit, there's not enough inseam and its far too loose at the ankle to stack.
