    Those still don't have enough sweat encrusted on them so as to appear like a horse's salt lick.

    They're broken twill Skinny Guys. I went TTS. I think they stretched at least a little bit all over because iirc they were a little hard to crouch down in and stuff at first but now they've bent to my whim.

    Does anybody have experience with their Cashmere stretch denim, or pictures of it after a lot of wear?

    After reading the last 40 pages of this thread I feel like I'm an expert on Naked and Famous denim now!

    Quick question for you guys, I'm getting my first pair of Naked and Famous WGs, but I have a questions regarding the fading. Oddly, I really don't want my denim to fade, I like it to retain its dark clean look. Which pair of WGs fade the least? I was thinking about either the indigo or deep indigo selvedge.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    It's just salt, and I did wash them, this picture was pre-wash. Well didn't really wash them, more of a dip. Quick dip in really cold water with a touch of Launderess denim soap and all the salt came right out. Amazingly they didn't smell at all, as long as I hung them to dry after skateboarding(sometimes outside with a breeze) they just retained all the salt. I also use the Launderess fabric spray. This is a contest and I'm in it to win it, a little salt isn't going to stop me, can't wash them after I skate every time, I lose enough indigo as it is drenching them in sweat.

    Casual Friday, wore these to work. The colour on these is so amazing. I'm honestly surprised that there's still a large range of sizes left.

    ^ I'm not normally a fan of brightly colored pants, but those chinos are ace. That shade of red is perfect.


    And on a side note, I'm thinking of taking the plunge and getting a pair of Weird Guy Indigo jeans. My only concern is the bleeding. How bad is it? I'm new to raw so I don't really have much of a reference point

    @John

    Darker colors tend to fade the least. I purchased a pair of raw N&F recently, and I too don't want them to fade at all because I love the color, and the clean minimalistic look. To keep jeans from fading, I suggest not washing them unless you really need to.

    Weird guy indigo. I can button them up pretty easily, but they aren't loose. The fit is nice but not sure if I should go down one more because of stretching. What is the consensus on this?

    I'm honestly surprised that people pay their hard-earned money to wear these in public.

    regular indigo are one of the harder colors to fade, but if you got anything in the powerstretch style, they won't fade at all. another option you have is to wash / soak with woolite dark detergent, as it will prevent color loss. soaking / washing in cold water helps too.
