    I've got a pair of raw Acne Mic's that my parents decided to wash out of the goodness of their hearts since I was in a car accident and unable to get them dry cleaned myself. It looks like they were laundered and now they've got weird vertical lines on them. Is there anything I can do about them or am I out of luck?

    Sorry about the low-res pictures.

    Just keep on wearing them, they will turn out fine. The lines will get less noticeable as time goes on anyway.

    If it makes you feel better, my 45rpm suminandos came with a fairly faded vertical line down the side of them :p

    Try ironing them inside out. Maybe get the crease a little wet first.

    if you wear them enough, they will eventually become normal after the rest of the jean fades out.

    Ah fashion-ignorant parents - the bane of dry denim. That's why it pays to live away from home (sometimes)...
