Okay, I don't like fades. I often wear my denim with loafers and a double breasted blazer so overly sick "FadeZ" are not really my thing. Therefore I was advised to wash my APC New Standards with Vinegar during the first wash to set the dye. I bought myself some 8% Acidity Alcohol Vinegar but I don't know how to proceed. Do you put the Vinegar in the little tray where you usually put the washing liquid? Or how do you use it? Also how long should I wait before the first wash so that they are stretched properly? I bought them very small as advised and they are very tight, I don't want them to shrink, I was told by the store guy that they wouldn't once broken in a little. Hope to be hearing from you guys! Thanks! PS: Unlike my Indigo Selvedge Jeans, I have a pair of New Standards in Black/Dark Grey that say "Hand Wash" on the label. Does this mean I can't wash them at 30 degrees like the Indigo ones?
