    Does anyone know where I can find the Martin Margiela money wallet online (dollars version only, not Euro) ? Used is ok, too. This is the exact wallet I'm looking for: [​IMG]

    What is the consensus on dry cleaning jeans. Should I go through the trouble or should I just wash them in a regular washer?

    Onion, it looks like a very easily duplicated "Shitty Cardholder With Dollar Bills Glued To The Outside And An Elastic Hair Band Too For Good Measure"

    How do the AE Soho's fit? I wear a 12 in pretty much every sneaker.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Dry Selvage is synthetic indigo, whereas the Organic Dry is natural indigo. Because of the different indigo used they will also have a slightly different color.

    Also the "organic" cotton used by Nudie doesn't contain pesticides and other chemicals that normal cotton does.

    ^ Organic Dry also does not use selvage denim, so the outseam won't have the cleaner-looking edge of selvedge denim.

    What is a good website to buy American Apparel from at wholesale, or close to wholesale prices? My cousin used to work there so I could get employee discount, but they caught on to that [​IMG] now I need another option.

    First post, and I'm not very knowledgeable about jeans, so:

    I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a decent pair of non-slim jeans that has and keeps that raw denim dark blue shine for more than 1-2 washes?

    Thanks

    This is a x-post, sorry

    Just a quick question about washing denim

    For my jeans, I usually follow the APC recipe for washing which is basically not to wash until the 8 month mark or so. Nudies recommends the same thing.

    I have a pair of F380s coming in and looking on this forum / SUFU, I see that a lot of people soak there jeans more than once (after the initial soak for shrinkage).

    So now I am confused as to whether I should not soak my new F380s until the 8 month period (like APC recommends), or soak regularly like you guys do.

    What is the general consensus or normal timing for soaks? Will it reduce the fades and contrasts if I do it too often?
    Thanks
