Do we always need to wash our jeans before wearing it for the first time?

Hi, i have been wearind japanese denim for the past 2 years and have always washed(hot soak) before wearing it. i have wored pbj's, samurai's and they have always turned out good.

Yesterday i received my kicking mule workshop.

i tried them on and they fit perfectly without even washing and their denim also feels light(less rigid if i can say) as compared to PBJS.

So i wanted to ask you that should i go ahed and wear it like this or should i wash it first.

your help would be highly appreciated.

Whatever floats your boat.

Some people soak ALL their jeans new. Some people soak NONE of their jeans new.

I do 60% of both all of the time.

my personal choice is to soak no matter what. if it's dry denim and it's sanforized, and it fit's perfect pre-soak, i will do a warm soak. and will try them on while they are still damp, so they don't shrink too much.

depends on how tight you want them, etc.
