    Honestly, it was hard to read. I apologize for coming off snarky, and agree somewhat. However, I think this thread was meant to be more tame than waywt, and not a prescreening so to speak.

    I was not responding to you at all. You've always seemed pretty solid in my book.

    Ha, I hadn't seen the tea party one before, but yes, this is something I have researched in the past.

    I've done the tea dyeing on a pair of faded jeans, I liked the effect. It dyes the white/faded parts a yellow-brownish tint (I believe I used black tea) and gives it a perma-dirty look that doesn't come out. I don't know how effective it would be on a new pair of jeans since the indigo parts on mine were unaffected

    I had a pair of super cheap white UO jeans that I once inadvertently dyed with nothing but cocoa powder, but really they just looked like I rolled around in filth. Which was, fortunately, the goal of the project.

    I have 3 plans for this weekend:

    1) High gloss, hot-pink layered, cracked and painted homemade disco pants. These are a for-sure.
    2) Black, coated in silicone like some random dude on SZ did a long time ago. Gonna have to figure out the logistics.
    3) Black, waxed and maybe glossed. This is dependent on me deciding whether or not to use my grill to heat the wax/oil, which worries me a bit.

    Will take photos of all successes and failures.

    I waxed a denim jacket, and I double boiled the wax (I used "Barbour Thornproof Dressing") on the stove. I had like 75%+ of the jacket done by the time the wax started to reharden, so it's not like you have to leave it on a heat source and risk dripping it on everything. I just took the pan out in the grass, and did it on a big piece of cardboard. Not messy at all.

    I bought this blazer from Uniqlo yesterday. I like the cut, "fits small and short like bOo". The only thing i don't like about it is the wrinkles style. I am going to take it to the dry cleaner and try to have it iron out. Yes or No?

    I saw those jackets. Pretty good for summer if you gotta wear one since they're completely unlined and a very light fabric. I think getting the wrinkles out would be a good idea, then just leave the wrinkles from your arm combs when it gets those within 5 minutes.

    I think it would look really good on a 'finished' pair of raw's.

    Wash them a few times, mend them all up and then to a tea dye to finish it up. That pair on SuFu was awesome, looked dusty and beat up.

    Yeah, they're pretty random as-is. I think the next project is going to be painting jeans a la margiela. Don't know which to do it to though, may have to hit up AA for white jeans in order to paint them hot pink...
    Fuck, you stole my idea. American Apparel had a pair of white jeans covered in black paint splashes about a year ago. I was ready to cop but my girl shot down the idea... and they were like $100 anyway.... Still gonna do it though... maybe for next spring Those tea leaf jeans look good (from what I can see from those shitty cameraphone pics)

    How much did this run you? I'm going to be in NYC in a couple of weekends, and I've been looking for an unlined summer jacket, so this looks perfect
