    Picked up a pair of the Ralph Lauren RRL's, 25x32, bought these about a month and a half ago off the almighty ebay. Been wearing them about 3 times a week, when should I finally wash these and how?

    I'm new to this whole dry/raw denim thing, but I can tell they are really wearing well, lots of good creases and wear lines already. I'll try to snap a pic tomorrow.

    As cheapmutha once told me, "wear them until they stink like a dog."

    The tag says 90 days, it's totally up to you. I'm 1 month in on mine and I ain't touching them till Feb.

    yeah... wash when you cant stand the smell. for some its a year, some its 6 months. for me its 2 or 3 weeks, but im also sitting in wet jeans from skating in them after work yesterday.

    rrl seem to wear kinda fast, and washing makes the color very nice.

    I can't imagine a pair saying "One-Wash" (Correct me if I'm wrong...) but the process of sanforizing "washes" the jeans to shrink them so that they will shrink minimally after YOUR initial wash. So technically they're one wash.

    Read my thread "RRL Fit" for more info.
