If anything soaking should deter blowouts.  Cheap looking fades, what does that even mean?  Initial soaks will do nothing but get rid of any shrinkage left and remove some starch.  I'm sorry you were given wrong information, that's a bummer.  I wouldn't be too worried or expect a lot of stretch after you wash your denim.  I highly doubt they will be unwearable after your wash, granted they aren't as tight as leggings at the moment.

i did say STRETCH isnt selvedge, so the WG from a couple seasons ago are selvedge but the current SG stretch isnt

Lol to be honest, even I'm not sure what that means. But no, they're not tight at all since I've lost some weight the past few months. They have a pretty relaxed fit. But I'm glad I got this information though. So general consensus is that hot soaking should always be done, regardless of whether the denim is 'sanforized' or not? Will it have any difference in how much time it'll take for the denim to start fading?

With the royal blue weft do you run the risk of staining shoes and boots while wearing these? I love the look but the idea of ruining a pair of my boots scares me.

Not really. So little indigo is lost at first that it doesn't do anything but benefit the durability of your jeans.

EDIT: You don't NEED to soak your jeans prior to wearing if you don't plan on hemming them. Just know they'll likely shrink. It's just all about making it easier for you later.

Yeah it's kind of confusing. Some are saying not to soak your jeans so you can get better fades. Doesn't the starch increase the initial fading? If you're soaking them before you even hem and break them in wouldn't that be going against what everyone is saying about raw denims by not soaking them until you have wear them for at least 6 months? There are some of us that don't stack our jeans so we usually get them hemmed to the perfect length.

BTW what is everyones opinion on the naked and famous belts? They seem to be pretty heavy duty and a nice alternative to the tanner and corter belts.

Love my tan belt I got about two years ago, you can't go wrong. Other "cheap" belts I have bought last maybe a year before they look horrible. This one is standing the test of time.

I have the brown one. And the surface seems to get kind of wrinkly - especially around where the buckle is when the belt is on. The belt around that area is all bent up and even some of the brown tanning has come off (though its still brown underneath) not sure if this is normal.

Yes, but I wasn't sure if the weft was dyed using indigo. And if it wasn't, will what it's dyed with stain as well.

That's correct Kanye!

No that is a type 3 in that link, i.e trucker styled slimmer fit than a traditional type 2
