Please post relevant questions here instead of starting a new thread.
How often do you recommend or when do you recommend for it to be done?
....Exactly how... do you starch something...?
If you get spray starch, you just get the denim damp and spray it on (quite a bit, I understand) and it'll stiffen as it dries. I haven't really done it, so if someone who has can contribute, please do...
I've done it on my old ola. Made absolutely no difference. Putting just plain old water would have done the exact same thing.
Spray starch is too weak to do anything unless you use your entire can.
The powder or liquid starches you add to a soak or your washing machine will be more effective. But over starching can be kinda dangerous. Because then if its too starched up, you won't be able to get it out without repeated washings.
Factory starch is the best but obviously you can't get it. It's like that "new car smell" there are air freshners, but its just never the same.
so im just about to hit 10 days with my new RRDS, so if i want to stiffen then i should slightly wet it? or i thought it wasnt supposed to get wet for as long as possible
Just wear them. They are already stiff.
Yeah what? Most people can't wait until their jeans soften up..
folds on my jean
Hi all, i have let a long time my Evisu jean of a swift, and i have recieved important folds of my jean, i have iron the folds but it's change nothing, i wear since 1 month my Evisu and the folds don't go. I will not that my Evisu reciev fades of the folds.
I hesitate to give a cold soak to my Evisu, for remove folds.
Here we go again...congratz on your shitty thread...
I don't even understand what this threads about...
he's folded his jeans to put them in the closeth, now he thinks it's gonna leave fades he don't want...
answer: YOU sir, are an idiot, how do think warehouses store jeans? FOLDED, indeed...
furthermore, MISC. THREAD, ring a bell? use it!
You folded your jeans? That's it. The living indigo is now DEAD. The only thing proper move now is to burn them as a show of respect and spread the ashes around the floor of your closet.
Unfortunately, what he said is true. RIP to your Evisus
I moved the thread here. I was too lazy to edit daves poopie post. Just petend it's not there :lol:
no biggy, cabl3 always discovers things a little later then the rest of us... :razz:
How long are you exactly supposed to soak something
Usually 2-3 hours...
Does soaking RRDS stiffen it?
Had to soak a different pair of dry selvage jeans. No detergent or anything added. Just dipped it in cold tap water for a few seconds. It was all stiff afterwards. I like that.
Wanna maybe do the same to my nudies if it will also stiffen and not lose too much indigo.
Got about 2 months wear on em.
the real question is, would using the misc. question thread really hurt you (instead of making yet another topic for a small question) ;-)
How many times have this been repeated. Post these kind of questions in the misq thread. PLEEASE.
