    So dissapointed in my S/S 12 black corded cloth pants. I haven't been on here for a while so I'm sure this has come up - but I washed these on delicate with Woolite dark, and then did a delicate tumble, and they have these white lines running around them now - almost like wrinkled fades. I thought it was residue at first but I washed them twice more and the problem persists. Almost seems like salt or soap residue, which is normal on dark pants, but I think they actually were affected by the wash/dry cycle. The care tag says that it is cool to do this, and though I normally don't dry my nicer clothes I was trying to shrink them ever so slightly. Shouldn't happen.

    Anyway, I actually love these pants and want to get the other color ways but I'm worried they can't even stand up to a delicate hand wash cycle with nice cleaning products.

    Yes, and it is on the inside and outside. So bizarre. I'm thinking about washing them again with no detergent at all to see if it goes away. Hard to tell if it is soap residue or fading, but that shouldn't have any effect with Woolite Dark anyway. My washing machine is nice and new - hand wash cycle cold/cold/light spin. No good reason this should happen to anything that does not need to be dry cleaned.

    I think I recall someone else mentioning the same problem previously in this thread. Small fades that almost had a "crack" appearance on their corded pants.

    I saw something on page 14 but it looked like a different problem. But yeah, these look like cracks and seem to be fades. I'm wearing these now because they are super comfortable and I don't want them to be a total loss but it looks bad for sure and is literally all over. Probably hard to see unless someone was sitting up close but it is visible enough. These would actually be my go-to summer pants too.

    The same thing that MSSneaker is talking about happened to my charcoal pair. Only difference was I hung them to dry. I can't wear them now. Really frustrating.

    And regarding shoes, I take 44 in both CP and W+H. The W+H shoes are just a bit shorter, so depending how your CP fit, you don't necessarily have the room to go down.

    Talk to W+H and get your money back.

    They need to know about defective products.

    I'm contacting them and quoting the forum. Ridiculous for a $200 + pair of pants.

    I got them on sale for $130, but still stupid for sure... I thought I was the only one so just didn't say anything, even though I followed wash instructions. Let me know how that turns out since I'd be interested in contacting them too if they step up.

    I mean, really even a $50 pair of pants shouldn't get bizarre fades, especially on a gentle cycle with quality detergent, while following the care tag. It's further rage inducing when you pay this much for them.

    I love my tan pair on the other hand. Except I somehow got a very small grease stain or something from lunch one day right on the crotch in just the right place to make it look like I dribbled on my pants in the bathroom :facepalm: I still wear them though...

    wings and horns are awful for correcting defective issues... I basically had to get furious with them in order to get anything done.. still haven't bought any of their products this year. Last year I probably bought 3k worth of shit from them.

    Yeah, I had lots of problems as well, but W+H were receptive...

    I'm starting to diversify my brands a bit more...being careful what W+H items I buy...

    Really. I'm planning on grabbing some basics, the Japanese slub button down, a hoodie, and eventually that tan DR jacket if it hits ~$300-400 range.

    I'll grab more sneakers if they hit half price like last year. Although I'm having a hard enough time rotating the ones I have :confused:
