    I took the girl I'm seeing now out for dinner last week and the topic of jeans came up.

    Me: Yeah, I haven't washed these in about 6 months.
    Her: Really? Yeah, I think I've maybe washed the jeans I'm wearing now once in the year that I've owned them. How do you think they stay looking so dark? And they're perfectly fine cleanliness-wise.

    I'd get her into raw if she wasn't so vehemently opposed to paying over $60 for a pair.

    I get the "Eww, wash your jeans for once" comments from my friends all the time when I first told them about raw denim.

    Now, they never bothered to ask.

    Would you feel better if she was the type willing to shell out $300 on some True Religions or Chip n Peppers? [​IMG]

    Yikes... borderline ass-vortex, muffintop action here...

    I actually might feel better if that were the case. She'd probably then be more interested in quality and having a wardrobe that would set her apart from other girls while remaining an elitest snob.

    the real mark is the stink, aka selvage stink. Its a combination of musty must, sweet starched denim and 90% relative humidity
    Haha, amen to that...

    Yeah, when I tell people about dry denim I tend to sort of omit the not washing bit.

    ive stopped noticing the blue mostly, especially on my hands... but sometimes when im done skating i have a blue ring around my hips, and blue tinged legs.

    and when my jeans stink, i wash them.

    I just didn't ::get it:: until last night, washing my hands after day one with my Sugar Canes. It is startling to see the water running so blue off my fingers. Like, am I having an acid flashback? [​IMG]
    wow, i can date the purchase of my beloved canes! i washed them for the second time two nights ago, they are still on the drying rack. first wash after four months, second at about 5 months. and they still smurf! [​IMG]

    ^ there you go

    my mom must have 50 pairs of jeans or more
    but i don't think she thinks or cares about them

    actually, she's got many many many shoes and such

    if its on sale, she buys
    even if it not her size

    in short, it is not quantity
    but the color of your hands

    All of my light colored boxer briefs have blue all over them, does that make me a denim head?

    freaked the eff out yesterday when i stepped on a rivet and thought it had fallen off of one of my jap denimzz...relieved when i turned the rivet over and saw X2 on them and realized they were my roommate's.

    I get the "Eww, wash your jeans for once" comments from my friends all the time when I first told them about raw denim.

    Now, they never bothered to ask.


    my girlfriend won't let me in her bed unless its on top of her covers or if i take my jeans off...usually opt for the latter.
