1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Should I wash my jeans inside out? Common denim questions.

  1. Question (first posted by @sector7again ): I have always been told to wash jeans inside out... is this correct?
    Thank you

    Answer (first posted by @lawyerdad ): I think the idea is that with any clothes, if you turn the them inside out you add a slight bit of protection against the outside surface getting abraded or whatever by the insides of the machinery. For people who are super focused on fades, turning jeans inside out probably doesn't hurt anything and theoretically may prevent having some uneven indigo loss where the jeans rub up against the machinery. But it's not like your jeans are waterproof. The soapy water's going to get to both sides either way.

    Thing is, they're only jeans. Doesn't really matter how much they cost, they're still only jeans. Once you start getting too precious about them, you've sort of lost the point...
