    Complicated to spray jeans twice a month lightly as they hang up ?
    thats the only part dealing with starching ..
    I'll post pics of my newest pair stiff as cardboard if you like ..
    They were on wash so I just sprayed the entire jean soaked and put them on til dry .. took 4 movies back to back basically .. did some squats between movies and " the bicycle " exercise on my back lol

    I plan on riding my bike an hour or so each night while it's cool outside when I get the gears fixed sometime soon to break them in nicely ...

    1947 bucklebacks? Damn that is a lot of starch. Those jeans are hanging and the leg opening is still bunched up!! You go.

    Good thing you asked rns - they are actually 1954 .. sorry edited it
    And that's not a lot of starch really I only sprayed once saturating them - I used a 50/50 mix for " heavyweight " starch properties ..
    I wore them while watching ultraviolet , big Momma's house 2 , last Holiday , Revolver and ate dinner indian style on huge floor pillows with my girlie ..
    Oh and watched Lucky # slevin with Bruce Willis ( as an elite hitman ) morgan freeman and Lucy Liu .. good stuff ...
    so all in all about 8 hours they were dry completely as far as I could tell ..
    Then I slowly took them off to keep their form and took a shower cause my skin was starched bad and hit the sack and started wearing them next day ...

    I don't know what is up with the other SF.

    LA Guy likes to distinguish his well-to-do establishment of the Queens English with what he thinks are lowly serfs who speak a different language... one with rules and boundaries.

    (in my best uppity british accent)
    He is a rather established prim and proper man.
