I have been reading lots on how to soften jeans when washing them. Some say to add salt to the machine or that not hang drying them as it keep them stiff as opposed to putting them in the dryer which will soften them up. I have some prewash AJ's in 'dark crinkle' which feel like dry denim rather than other Nudie pre-washes and after wearing them for a while they still are stiff. I dont want to wash them as they may shrink but might need to as my dry denim did'nt go that soft until after i washed them even though i wore them for 10 months before the 1st wash. Any tips on how to lose the stiffness and make them softer?. And before everyone says wear them till they go soft etc, i don't wear these jeans that often cos of how they are so it will be ages before i get enough wear from them.
