I have a pair of Nudies--Regular Ralf Dry Selvage. I have worn them for 5 months and 30 days. When they say in the Nudie booklet that you shouldn't wash them for 6 months, do they mean a 30-day month or a 31-day month? Help! I don't want to ruin my jeans! Also, they smell sort of like Detroit in summer. Is there anything I can do about the smell? I heard that if I tie them to the antenna on my car and use them as a windsock while I drive through the countryside, that might help air them out a little. Has anyone tried this? I've heard that after I wash them, they'll shrink a lot. I'm afraid they'll turn into capris. What can I do? Just getting it out of the way. Welcome back, everyone! Good to see you all again.
