I picked up a pair of Levi's Capital E dry denim Strummer's a few weeks ago, and I love them so far. It's my first pair of raw jeans and I get excited after each wear to see any new honeycombing and wear. I just wish I didn't work in a business environment... because of that, I'm limited to wearing them on the weekends. I had two questions about caring for dry denim though. 1. What do you guys do when it's raining? In Detroit we've had rain for the past 6-7 days straight, and I've been hesitant to wear my new jeans for fear of the rain somehow causing them to bleed in a wierd way, or just mess them up. Should I be concerned with getting them wet; or is the more wear the better? 2. The waist has stretched a bit, nothing a belt doesn't fix; but the knees have started to bubble out. Is there anyway to tighten them up a bit (throw them in the dryer?) without loseing their dry denim qualities?
