    Ohhh man these definitely shrunk. My stomach is a bit tight. Also, are they supposed to be rougher than ever?

    theyre gonna be stiff as fuck and yeah your beautiful white patch probably isnt so white anymore but theres probably something you could do about it. the brown and shit is probably from starch. they'll soften up and stretch.

    i fucking love putting on my denim when it's all crunchy. i soaked my SEXI04s the other day and when I put them on it almost hurt... i instantly fell in love

    I recently bought a pair of Levi 501 shrink to fit jeans. I followed the correct procedures to shrink them and I got them down to a perfect, comfortable size. However...they are still dark blue. Am I wrong or isn't it fashionably bad to wear jeans that have such a dark blue color? Can someone inform me what is currently "in" with jeans? These are the darkest jeans I've ever worn...

    I'm 26, 6'6 and need some answers [​IMG]

    Yes but are dark jeans ok for a 26 year old guy? I always hear the phrase "mom jeans" when people talk about dark jeans...what is that all about?

    So the whole idea of "faded jeans are better overall" or "dark jeans are better overall" is false...and both have their own place in the wardrobe of everyone, right?

    your STFs are gonna fade and shit. thats what raw denim is. usually it is very dark, deep indigo, and with wear it fades to lighter colors. light and dark denim have their places in the wardrobe but if i had to pick one pair itd be dark.
