looking for white jeans? Get in a time machine and go back to the summer of 2005-they'll be everywhere. just kidding. Levis' has lenty of cheap white jeans-which is what you would want b/c they'll be white for about 20 whole minutes.

I have a pair of white Levi's 501, one white linen-cotton Diesel and one bleached white Diesel. They're not in the rotation regularly, but I do wear them once in a blue moon when I'm in a trendy mood. Helmut Lang, Dior, Cheap Monday, etc.,. all make white jeans.

What do you guys think of as the proper state of a pair of white jeans? Do you let them pick up scuffs and dirt and wash them as well as possible? Or do you keep them pristine and ditch them the instant they get dirty?

There are bundles of white and off-white Helmut Lang jeans & jean cords on eBay right now going for around $40. The seller is also 100% genuine. Don't fret about the 'bootcut' word, Helmut Lang bootcut = straight leg.

I prefer white jeans to be as pristine as can be, but we're not all Mister Moneybags around here, you know.


I find the best solution is a periodic Oxycleaning.

I would assume not, no? My guess is dye causes those effects and the lack of dye in white jeans would make it pretty darn hard to achieve whiskers, honeycombs, or any other dye related wear. But I'm a noob so.........
