Also, what's the best way to not sound like a dick when commenting on other peoples fits. I like to be criticized as much as the next guy, but at the end of the day if you don't offer any helpful information your just being a cunt punter. Just saying. 

What part of personal opinion don't you understand?

I'm not here to educate you on how to dress properly.

I just stated there are better fits for someone with your physique. Again an... Opinion. You just wear whatever you like, but my point still stands. If you post pics, you will get reactions. No need to start calling names for that.

i have a pair of pomegranates with maybe 30 actual wears on them...the creases are all there but no real fading as of yet.  definitely seem like they will be slow fading, but i love the color.

Almost the last two pages has been just arguing and no real information or people helping others with sizing or fabric. It's turning into quite the useless thread. By the way, if you don't like what mister56 is saying, you can just block him like I have and you won't see his drama, Simple.

^This. This thread has turned into a fucking train wreck. Not the cool kind that you just can't look away from but, the kind where trains have just fallin off the tracks.

Let me try and get this forum going in the right direction. Hopefully I will generate some constructive dialogue.

 

Here is what I have learned about raw denim through reading many articles from many diverse sites.

 

1. All cotton will shrink. Unsanforized more than sanforized. Washing in a machine shrinks more than soaking. Hot soaking will shrink more than cold water soaking and keep more indigo on your jeans.

 

I always soak my new denim sanforized or not. The temperature depends on how the jeans fit me. If they are loose I soak in hot water, if they fit correctly I use cold water. This approach helps keep the creases in the same place when I eventually wash them.

 

2. After I soak my new denim I let them drip dry in the sun, but I don't let them dry completely. When they get to a slightly damp stage I put them on. This lets them stretch out in the right places, and when they dry on your body the creases set in tight. I find this is a better alternative to siting in a tub with my jeans on. Wearing soaking wet jeans around the house is not very fun. One last thing, soaking new denim for more that 20 minutes is a waste of time, because the cotton gets saturated in 20 minutes. If you go longer than 20 minutes you're just losing indigo.

 

3. The heavier the denim, the less they stretch out over time.

 

4. This is a quick way to get your stacks to set. With your jeans on take a garden hose and spray the bottom of your denim. It does not have to be super soaked, just wet works fine. After you get them wet put on shoes that you don't mind getting indigo dye on. Next, just slightly push them down and wear them, gravity will do the rest.

 

5. I feel that the more your jeans flex and stretch the better your fades will progress. For this reason I would never use starch on my jeans. If you think about it, starch stiffens your denim and keeps it from flexing and moving. Some believe that starch is to abrasive and will shorten the life of your prized purchase.

 

Well, that's what I do. 

 

Cheers.

Damn 30 wears? I believe I got mine earlier than you did yours I think and I've gotten like 8 in. You must really like them.

I own the LHT's, they are almost 2 years old now, 4 washes, although I don't wear them much these days while I try working others into the rotation - they are still one of my absolute favourites though.

i really only alternate between the pomegranates and 3sixteen shadown denim outside of work.  (probably wear the pome's every 3rd day i'd guess).  the weather here in MD is finally started to warm up so jeans have been getting worn less and less.

 

regardless the pomes are awesome. i've gotten a lot of compliments.

This thread has always been very snarky with me and other new people. I try to fit in. I just wrote a very good post, at least I thought it was good, and I get no response. Anyway, Lets try to be nice to me, ok?

 

Does it get very humid in MD? Houston is very humid and very hot. About 8 months out of the year you get that good old swamp feeling. The type of heat that when you walk outside it feels like your swimming in a giant butt crack at curves workout camp.

Does anybody know how the Vintage Nude Print fades? The cuff looks interesting.
