post #5746 of 21424
I was thinking about ordering a pair of PBJ XX-005s from Blue in Green when they get a restock later this month. I'm 6'3, and I'd like a longer inseam. I was wondering if I could get away with ordering a s30 (my normal size is a 31, actual waist closer to 32), and then doing a minimal soak before wearing them. Would they shrink too much in the wash, or could I do a cold wash and then air dry them?

I would just go ahead and do a hot soak. they will easily stretch out the 1-2 inches. mine have stretched 4 inches...

just wear them more and wash them once a week.

Anyone know of a good denim tailor in Houston?

This whole issue of stretching is getting me down. I'm seriously considering an impossibly tight fit on my next pair of jeans to the point where I may well suffocate or destroy my testicles. How tight do people usually go if they want a clean fit? As tight as you can bear it?

any effective methods for cleaning dry vomit off jeans? water doesn't really seem to work, and i'm not too keen on putting them into the washer(yet).

You should probably focus more on the cut than how many sizes you're going down.

Need to get my flat heads hemmed and I'm looking for a place in Richmond, VA that does chain stitching. Anyone know a place?

if you have a steam buggy or something, you can [spot] steam it... or soak in warm water with a tad of detergent [swish about periodically to loosen dirt].

there's the sure way and the fast way. the sure way way is to wear&wash as often as possible. now, if you need one [this summer], then you need drastic measures with a bit of a risk entailed__ maybe try with your least favorite jeans. i've done it a few times [awhile back] out of boredom.

set wash to regular+hot :: pour detergent+chlorine [approx. 3-4 tbsp] :: let run for a min or 2 to agitate the solution to a lather before throwing in your jeans [note: inside-out] :: drying under the sun [right-side out] will also help the bleaching process :: if still dark, repeat the process. but, don't be too generous with the chlorine__ impatience can lead to disaster.

Hey guys, I bought a pair of NDG Collection No.7 Jeans fro the Autumn/Winter 2008 season. I assume these are not raw/dry nor selvedge, can anyone confirm? The cross stitching on the edge of the fabric is the giveaway that they're not selvedge right? Here are some pics:

^^Not selvage, but looks raw to me.

^^^ selvedge won't have a serge thread on the edge.

How do you tell if something is raw? The jeans are a touch stiff but definitely not too out of the ordinary either. I wish I had asked when I picked it up from the store.

<---supreme noob.

^might be one-wash then. In general, a "sharp" /flat look to the color indicate the denim has not been washed and/or distressed. Kinda hard to explain though.

Can anyone advise me on how to go about buying NDG classic fit in dry denim? Is there a measurement chart for these? I've never done dry denim in my life.

And most off all, I suppose, are they even worth buying?
