HC-SF-104
Naked And Famous Big Slub

 98 days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This fourth shot is a HDR (High-dynamic-range) shot. I was curious to see what HDR would do to denim. With so much variation in the threads of these Big Slub jeans, HDR seemed like to would really exaggerate the threads more. What do you think?

I do. Just don't lay or hang it on anything metal, it will pick up that smell and it stays and stinks.

I've had this pair for 2 months and they are really comfortable now but I'm really conscious of how there's a weird shelf under the knees when I stand.

Anybody know what the deal is with that or how I can get rid of it (taper/hem/etc)?

Knee bags... I have those on some of my jeans and I truly hate them.  I've heard some weird suggestions like trying to shrink that area by itself with hot water and drying (but I can't believe that actually works).  Good question...I welcome a solution to this problem as well.

the knee bags lessen a lot overtime i've had a lot of denim that looked like that in the start but 2 years later you don't even notice it its gone. if anything it changed the cut of the lower leg to always be more fuller. if you want to help with that look you should also hem 3" off. nod[1].gif

Yeah, a good hemming would definitely help. I'm still hoping to have some stacks at the bottom afterwards so how many inches should I take off? My inseam for chinos is 30 and the n&f jeans are 34.

1) Take your shoes off.

2) Put the jeans on.

3) Cuff them up to where the touch all the way to the ground behind your heel.

4) Stick a safety pin there.

5) Take them to tailors and have them hem the jeans 1" down from your safety pin. (For more stacks make it 2")

6) Thumbs up my post.

Just have to say i got the green weird guys off of the gilt sale, and to my disappointment they did not have the selvedge line...
i hope its at least of the same fabric from the selvedge 08's. They really need to step up their product details.

I can't stand the feeling of jeans that have been sweated in. For me, no level of sick fadezzz is worth wearing summer-sticky denim. Machine wash, line dry, no stankiness, no worries. And though I can't speak from experience, as I seem to destroy jeans with impunity, jeans will probably last longer if they're frequently washed.

Well, I'm thinking it would be a waste of money for you to buy a pair of selvage jeans. cold[1].gif

Washing jeans actually does increase longevity, as dirt and sweat break down cotton fibers.

 

Personally I only work on my "fadezzz" jeans during the cooler months. Works pretty well for me

You're probably right. With the exception of a pair of vintage Lee jeans, all my denim for the last 7-8 years has been raw or 1-wash selvedge. I cycle year round, and do a decent amount of dirtbaggy leisure activities. In other words, I destroy jeans, no matter how well made they are. I went through a few years of avoiding washing, eventually I just gave up on it, preferring to maintain some semblance of cleanliness. I'd hazard a guess that most people in the no-wash camp lead a far cleaner lifestyle than do I, so they can afford to go 6-12 months of effective wear. If I were to do that, my jeans would be rotting off my legs by the end.

 

That said, I wear denim less and less these days - prefer shorts, linen trousers, outlier pants, or lightweight wool in the summer, and heavyweight worsted wool or flannel in the cold.
