gotta put them on damp! (i know, i'm skinny.)
hang them up!
a shoutout to my current denim projects:
yeesh this took awhile.
so now the explanation, cut and pasted from another post:
they were stretched like mad and i couldn't really rock them anymore. one of my first denim purchases. washed 'em a week ago in a super hot bathtub soak. one cup of laundry detergent with no phosophates or bleaches, and the hottest water you can get out of your tap. fill the tub and mix in the soap so it's consitant throughout. place the jeans in right side out. push them down into the bath, and push the detergent/water mixture though the denim with your hands. (might burn you a bit! ouch!). leave them for 2 hours in the soak, many things will lift out of them. every 15-30min you should hit 'em with a blast of hot water to keep the heat up. turn them over and work the water though the back and stuff, make sure they're soaking. don't scrub with brushes, use your hands. this will preserve alot of the indigo and shrink up your jeans all over. take them out, but make sure you empty the bath and rinse the jeans well with hot water (again, burning). when ALL the detergent is out, give them a light wring (not too hard now, save that indigo). place the jeans in a v shape, like flat out, ontop of a thick, preferably blue towel. (haha, duh). roll them up, and make it decently tight. when rolled, fold in half, slap around, etc. roll it back out, flip the towel, and flip the jeans, do it again. this will remove the excess water. put them on. wear them for like 15-30min, and walk around and do squats and stuff to put your creases back in perfectl like. take them off really carefully, and lay them flat to dry on a drying rack or a warm hardwood floor that's clean. after about 2-4 hours when they're kinda dryer but still quite damp, put 'em on again, wear 'em around. take 'em off carefully again to keep your creases, and hang them up until they're totally dry. if they haven't shrunk to your liking, after 12-16 hours of hanging, you can toss them in the dryer on a super super super low setting and watch them carefully, checking every 10 minutes. hope this helps you! it worked great for me, got out the blood, booze and sweat, and shrunk them to the OG size and then some, which is what i wanted! great times.
This thread is such a cock tease. I was expecting a pair of nudies with a fucking awesome fade.
note: "other brands".
that was lame AS
So the brand is called f-cking awesome???
And... I don't see ANY difference at all...
Don't really see any difference pre/postwash???
yaa cant really tell the difference before and after the wash
hahaha first denim topic joke i like :lol:
not so fucking awsome i guess..change the topic to : Cant tell the fucking difference !
PEACE UP man
don't really like the jeans..but love the old nintendo on the background
yes, that's the brand name.
it's done by jason dill and the aNYthing dudes etc.
it's impossible to tell from the pics, my camera's like 2.1megapixel (shit)
they're noticeably washed in real life.
screw you, bastards!
why would you expect them to be nudies in the OTHER BRANDS forum?
even if u use 100 mega pixel camera, we will hardly see any difference..
tell u what,,ur jeans are dead man..burry them 8) R.I.P
PEACE UP MAN
wow, you must be an idiot.
the point of my handwash and soak was to shrink, as well as preserve indigo. do you know anything about different denim projects? kill yourself, douche.
That explains... I guess most people here go for as much fading as possible. We just LOVE that and we expected you too, but if this is your style: it's okay!
That's so nice about jeans: it's really personal!
i have never felt so betrayed in my whole life!
Come on people! Give the man a break! He likes his jeans darker...
And if the brand's name is called F-cking Awesome... yeah, to put that in the topic is a little misleading... We thought it had to do with how they came out after washing...
well... back to work...
