Yeah, we don't really dig the "norm."

There are links at the top of this page to all of our affiliates. We try to shop them and with good reason.

EDIT: Does SecretserviceLA have a webshop? or would it just be a blog
1) http://blog.shopfarinellis.com/2009/...ate-jeans.html
2) Check the shopfarinellis.com thread for the styleforum discount. Each vendor has their own discount promotion but Farinelli's is 20% off.
3)SSLA is just a blog for the moment but you can email or call to buy. They also have an affiliate thread (again the links are at the top of the page. Hard to miss.)

So anyway, my first pair of STFs I took a bath in and then stuck them in a dryer and then proceeded to wash + dry them on HEAVY (including one 2hour wash on the sanitary/superheated setting) heat and agitation and they really lightened up to a dark stonewash color with a really worn in look. Very soft too.

With my second pair, inside out, I put them in the bathtub for around an hour and then put them in the dryer for 5-10 minutes but took them out when someone here said not to dryer dry them. I let them air dry overnight and now they're really stiff which is kinda cool and they're still dark and shiny.. I really like it, it's an in style look imo.

Yeah, you're a creative troll. Are you TyroneFig or whatever? Wait, don't answer that.

how hard do you need to wear your jeans before they fade? i have a pair that didnt change at all after wash... im sad they were rl black label and looked "raw" ie no distressing just dark blue... i was under the impression that everything faded but i guess not?

Depending on the jeans, several weeks to many months of wear. Not all jeans are created equal.

If you're going through the shopfarinellis.com website then the discount code (or password) is listed here: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...6&postcount=76 Otherwise, you can email Mauro, tell him what you want and in what size, and he'll send you a paypal invoice. It's that easy.

if so...

1. Where can I buy new harware?, or do I send it somewhere?, etc
2. How much would it cost to get it replaced (roughly)?

Thanks

Rivet! Rivet!, anyone?
Thanks

I am looking for a pair of black jeans.
I would like these black jeans to be raw, and in a skinny/slim fit.
Waste: 32. Inseam: 34
I am tall, and cannot go below a 34 inch inseam. I have tried on black Cheap Monday's and, while the indigo fits me fine (I'm wearing them now), the blacks come up short. I really, really do not like short jeans on me.

Any suggestions?

I'm sure you can find rivets easily online or at local fabric stores and they can't cost much.

apc new standards in black ... you can get them from farinellis (no more discount on them but he gives free shipping and sometimes a free t shirt) or you can get them from context (they are more expensive there and are marked higher than retail) and then you can also just order direct from apc.

Thanks. I've got new standards in indigo. They were awesome and completely satisfactory before I washed and dried em, and they lost an inch or two in inseam. Now they're boarderline too short and leaves me feeling like I've got to low-ride them. It'd be cool to start a new project with new standards and not wash/dry them this time.

my SJDJ stretched out more than I expected, and got a good amount of dirt on them. I'm about four months in. Whats the best method for soaking? Hot or Cold?
