    I laugh at the situation, not at you directly. :laugh:

    Yes, the "wife-washing-the-denims" has happened many times in the course of SF-history. Be happy they're sanforized.

    I feel one step closer to only being able to talk to people on the Internet. Thanks, styleforum! :paranoia:

    I don't see how a wash would really do that much -- a huge majority of indigo loss is from wear, not being in a washing machine.

    I wasn;t able to butotn the top button on my 0702sp's or 3-sixteen SL-100's and now they fit easily. Wear them a few times without the top button, it will stretch.

    Luckily my wife knows raw denim, as well as their price. It saves me the ''wife-washing-the-denim" experience.

    They actually don't look bad. But the wash did progress them more than I would like, and the denim is now getting streaky. This is with about 9 months of part-time wear, one careful wash (2 weeks ago) and one uncaring wife wash (yesterday).

    Yeah, and at times, they get washed. Life goes on. Your jeans look fine.

    Hey guys just washed my Momo's and noticed wear on the inner thigh of my jeans...at the seam where the denim is rolled the top of the roll has started to wear through. I know the earlier the better when it comes to denim repairs so I figured I'd ask you guys for some opinions on if they need some attention now or if I am being paranoid. From the picture just let me know what you think. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. But the difference between no wash and first or second is pretty pronounced. Kind of odd to hear someone suggest otherwise. 702's have really nice color and heavy indigo (see the contest thread). Plus when you wash them you lose the form & ridges in the body of the jeans, particularly the whiskers in the back of the knee. If you want your jeans to look like gap dad jeans that's cool, but I don't think you're going to get the kind of high-definition fades that I'm personally looking for when buying an expensive jean like momotaros.

    They're fine unless the stitching really starts to come away or you start to wear through on the other side of the stitching.

    The difference between how fast fades set-in and/or develop after no wash, the first, and the second wash is pronounced. The difference between your jeans right before and after you do those washes is not.

    Just so you know, these aren't 702s, but rather Grand Indigos... 702 don't have Japan Blue printed across the waistband.
