    How do you guys store your denim? This goes for both the jeans you wear everyday, and the ones you put aside for special occasions. I've had major paranoia about this since i need to air them every night to stop them from smelling (i'm in the tropics where people perspire easily and things smell bad quickly), but i'm afraid that turning my jeans inside out will ruin the creases and/or create new creases in funny places, and a whole variety of other worries...

    If they're dry (i.e., not being washed), I hang 'em on the fence to air out, if needs be. Otherwise, I just toss them on the floor or stick them in a drawer.

    What "other worries" man? I seriously doubt that you're going to create any creases that wont be reconfigured, if you will, by wearing, not that such creases would really be an issue. I always thought the point of jeans was to beat the hell out of them...

    Agreed. They're jeans. Wear them. When you are not wearing them, they'll survive lying on the floor just fine.

    When my jeans are not on the floor or over a chair, they tend to hang in my closet with clip hangers.

    They hang on my computer desk chair, sometime bunched up on the couch... The ones I "store" are folded in three on a shelf.

    Temperature- and humidity-controlled Lucite display cases. Wouldn't want to degrade the indigo when I'm not wearing them, of course.

    Honestly, I hate the wear that comes with using clipped hangers. I'll take horizontal creases gladly over fabric damage.

    Yeah, but what about oxidation? You don't use a noble gas atmosphere? Come on!

    Wow it's amazing what some fatigue will do to you--my jeans are just sitting on the floor moping right now, because i'm so tired from walking all over today.
