Rinse or not to Rinse? Hi All, I just pulled the trigger on my first pair of APC NS's. I've completely new to unwashed denim, and I've read pages and pages of this thread only to find conflicting information. Some said give them a rinse when you first get them. Other said don't. What should I really do, and why or why not? I'm going to try to wait at least 6 months for the first actual wash, as that seems to be unanimous. Also, the consensus seems to be that they fit well if it's difficult to button the top button the first time you put them on. Is that pretty much the case? THANKS! Jake No need to rinse APC's. All it will do is lose the nice sheen they come with (shrinkage will be close to none). Just wash it when it begins to smell. Escarole - All I did in my pair was walk around campus and go bar hopping/clubbing/partying in them. I just tried to beat them up as much as possible, no need to run track in a pair of jeans to achieve fades. My pair didn't touch water for over a year though (and they never smelled).
