Always do all my laundry on cool machine wash (30ºC) with laundry strips (you guys are still using liquid detergent in plastic bottles?). The only difference with denim is that I always hang dry it, never use a dryer. Never had any problems.

@bows1 Dood, you’ve been around forever and lived through the APC, Dior, Acne, Nudie and all the Japanese repro shit days… Throw them in the wash alone (especially if overdyed), inside out and then in the dryer if you want them to shrink… hang them to dry if you don’t want them to shrink as much. You know this.
Ha I know, and I felt stupid asking the question. But with no experience with the brand I figured it didnt hurt to ask.

Always vaccum using a rechargeable Roomba (you guys are still plugging in a bulky vaccum?)

I just always hand wash flat with Woolite Dark in the bathtub and hang to dry. Pretty simple, and 0% chance of something going wrong.
i do this too. for whatever reason, black sulfur dyed denim has an increased chance of marbling in a spin cycle, so thats the only thing to look out for. some people don’t want that. ive only really seen that marbling in raw or sanforized, not really in one-washed pairs though.

I’ve had this experience with sulfur dyed denim as well and almost universally so, no matter what spin cycle. Never with other denims

Is there a SF approved brand for U neck/scoop neck tees? Uniform LA? Mainly looking to use as layer under knits. My regular crewneck tees sometimes show under depending on knit so I need a wider neck.

I’m waiting for the mise-en-scene photos of a man shitting in the street or a tenement’s water boiler bursting or a family being ejected from their home.
