...your fault. APCs were recomended to me and now I stand here with a pair of New Standarts and some questions... ...colour question: Compared to Sugarcanes or even raw Levis the NS seem to have a lighter denim with a much higher part of white thread visible (looking a bit like twill). Normal or did I get some out of a new lighter batch? I like the cut but am not really sure about the colour... ...washing question: I understand that NSs are starched to help fading - if I want to keep them dark as long as possible (and still wear them and not put them in the closet) would it help washing or soaking them? Would they even get 'darker' by washing when the white thread gets blued by the washed out indigo?
