Wash = soak + soap + cleaning motion.

 

Soak = water

Thank you,

 

and wash, I mean machine.... they should be dry this morning... i should go take a look at them....

 

 

Alright well they look very similar to pre-wash, maybe a bit more contrast in some areas from a tiny bit of dye loss but nothing significant.

 

Same as every wash on these, they were machine washed on cold/warm inside out with Woolite Extra Dark by themselves.

You're in soak/wash purgatory my friend.  Type should I clean my jeans by just putting them in soapy water in google and read some of the guides that pop up.  Unreal.

 

The only way I can see you ruining your jeans with the decision to soak or wash is if you throw them in the dryer above low.  Honestly if your jeans are dirty wash them.  Don't be that guy.

Would it be too hot to wear the Elephant 1 during the (European) Summer?

It gets hot as 105 here i wore 19oz samurai s710 year round for 4 years unless your constantly say runnibg you would be fine.

Besides constant sweating is excellent weightloss and fades on denim.

depends on the person, some people have higher tolerance for sweaty balls than others.

I was fucking with you too dude, no worries.  People get kind of crazy with the washing of jeans.

That sounds like torture. Post a pic, so we can see the results of your suffering.

Black Skinny Guys = One of the best purchases I've ever made.
post #11909 of 13064

Hey guys, looking to grab a new pair of denim and just wanted some advice. I've lurked throughout the thread and you all really seem like you know your stuff.

 

I currently have a pair of APC New Standards in 28 and a pair of Indigo Weird Guys also in 28. The New Standards are about 18 months in and I'm pretty pleased with them. Initially when I got them I was told to do the whole "can't button the top 2 buttons" thing and they've come to stretch out comfortably. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the way the leg opening/shin area has flared out a lot, I guess that's just the nature of the NS fit. Should I go for something tapered to avoid this in the future?

 

As for my Weird Guys in 28, I think they are a bit too tight. They're about 8 months in, and still haven't stretched much. From the measurements I've seen it shows a fairly generous thigh but mine are really tight, the waist hasn't stretched much either... when I got them, they fit like my NS in 28 but they just haven't broken in the way I thought they would. Tight in the waist, crotch, and thigh.

 

So, I guess my question is, how much should I size up for a more comfortable fit? I'm thinking either the Suvins in a 29, getting another pair of indigos and sizing up to 29, or maybe even a different brand. You guys have some really excellent fits in here, so I'd love your input. I can post pictures if that would help.

Welcome to Styleforum. Jeans stretch differently depending on the fabric. N&F jeans are also sized slightly differently, even with the same cuts. I recommend checking blueowl for accurate measurements (if they have the pair you want). 

 


One of the best sizing tips is to size for your thighs before anything else. Waist areas can be stretched easily. In fact, you can even stretch them by hand if you need a little more size. Thighs are a bit more tricky though.
