    Good thing you asked rns - they are actually 1954 .. sorry edited it
    And that's not a lot of starch really I only sprayed once saturating them - I used a 50/50 mix for " heavyweight " starch properties ..
    I wore them while watching ultraviolet , big Momma's house 2 , last Holiday , Revolver and ate dinner indian style on huge floor pillows with my girlie ..
    Oh and watched Lucky # slevin with Bruce Willis ( as an elite hitman ) morgan freeman and Lucy Liu .. good stuff ...
    so all in all about 8 hours they were dry completely as far as I could tell ..
    Then I slowly took them off to keep their form and took a shower cause my skin was starched bad and hit the sack and started wearing them next day ...

    I don't know what is up with the other SF.

    LA Guy likes to distinguish his well-to-do establishment of the Queens English with what he thinks are lowly serfs who speak a different language... one with rules and boundaries.

    (in my best uppity british accent)
    He is a rather established prim and proper man.

    Hey, who leaked that picture? Oh well, at least now people know that I was done with skinny jeans about 150 years ago, at least. It's so done.

    i been starching my jeans for 17 years. this is how you do it RIGHT! get your jeans out and get you a bottle of STA-FLO concentrated starch. HAS TO BE STAY-FLO!!! Take your jeans and line em up seam to seam.make sure the seams line up perfect. lay them on your ironing board. next get your starch ready. use a spray bottle and depending on how heavy you want your starch to be,mix concentrated stay-flo starch with water. i prefer mine medium heavy so i mix 60%starch to 40% water. use more ore less to your liking.
    Now with your pants lined up on the ironing board spray your jeans with your mixture ONE LEG AND ONE SIDE at a time.after its sprayed,rub starch into the fabric with your palms and then wait abot 3-5 mins.this lets the starch penetrate the fabric and prevents scorching when you iron. set your iron to DRY high heat and start ironing paying extra attention to the creases so you will have them playa like sword sharp creases!! keep ironing...you will know when that side of the the leg is finished when it becomes dry. then flip over your pants carefully and repeat steps on the inside leg. One leg done! then you start on the other leg using the exact same steps.the key is to make sure your seams line up and you dont scorch by putting WAY too much starch or by not rubbing it in enough. once your finished check your pants and see if there are any touchups you can make. when done,lay pants flat or clip to hanger that lets them hang. you DO NOT have to put them under the matress lol. next day,slide them crisp puppies on and watch the compliments come!!!
