    It’s time I take some evo pics… [​IMG]
    Between you and me, I’ve been cheating and wearing them in the summer on days when it’s less than 90 degrees.


    Iron Hearts are better, but this denim is actually super soft and more ridged than my mom’s Iron Heart 22oz jeans. The rivets on these are also insanely nice and heavy-duty. They also stand up and keep out water if you take a shower in them. My favorite jeans…[​IMG]

    Good photos, Iron Hearts are great too! The matter is how to clean it against hot summer weather. People wearing will be melting under the sun with your jeans 23oz. The better way to clean and keep out from odor without color fake away.

    I soak them in cool water with Dr. Bronner’s magic soaps, it’s really easy on the denim and makes them smell fresh and minty. It also has some sort of magic properties in removing starch.

    Excellent choice. It takes next to nothing; I usually fill a bath tub just over the top of the jeans, than put a small squirt of Bronner’s in the palm of my hand, about the size of 2 quarters or so, than I mix it into the water and pat down the jeans (turned inside out). Then let them soak 10-20 minutes, than spray them down with the shower and hang dry.

    If you use the 16 oz just for washing raw denim, it could last years (a very long time anyway), but sometimes it’s hard to resist using it as shower soap.[​IMG]

    I have no idea what is Hemp. However, both I like it as I just saw people comment about that product. It sound really good for me and my raw denim too! For a happy day, stay away with the chemical would be awesome choice to make.

    Keep inform us, Anyone who can show off your Lee Riders Denim Jacket 1 years or more.....

    Thx for your advise.

    It’s a really useful relative of the marijuana plant that is great for making rope and has uniquely oily seeds (perfect for soap).
