I finally went out and bought some 7FAM's today. They are super nice. I've never owned or cared for designer jeans so is there anything i should know. I hope they don't shrink (do they?), i bought 32's because they fit best.

Any washing technique, do I wash them every time?

Thanks

wash with palmolive in hot water/dry high heat after each wear. dry clean every 7 weeks.

Don't forget to hot soak them in mayonnaise before wearing them though. This will preserve the denim.

You have to wear them inside out for the first two weeks or else the pockets will fall off.

They're all bullshitting you.

Wear daily (at least 20 hours each day) until you achieve exactly 7.77 months of wear. You'll have to calculate it out, and when you hit the mark, stripping yourself of your jeans no matter where you are is heavily recommended since otherwise the denim just might disintegrate.

The next step is to WASH your jeans... take some bleach and just plop the things in there... the fades you'll get are going to be absolutely epic. Dry over an open flame. Bonus points if you do it on a spit.

Hope you enjoy your new jeans.

I would not baby them. Just wear them when you want, wash them when you feel it is time, and just proceed with life as normal.

Hahahaha I love all these replies. But on a serious note....

Machine wash them cold, and hang dry them. Turn the jeans inside out before washing them.
Its that simple.

and NO don't wash them every time or else your jeans will last you like 3 months, haha
wash them about every 15 wears
