    Well be it any consolation for you guys, I came to my senses and decided not to wash my jeans today. I should think I will last the recommended (required?) 6 months, but seriously...some days are tougher than others.

    Wearing my Nudies 24/7

    I just got a new pair of RRDS. Do you think if I wear them 24/7 it will make them wear faster than if I only did for a few hours a day? My old pair took a good 5 months (until wash) to start to show decent wear and I'm afraid I'm just much to impatient for that.

    You're right about the creases and all,
    it's better to wear your new pair of jeans overday. And don't sleep in them.
    You can do that after a while if you want to. Just let the jeans take some time to adjust to your body.

    Perhaps it was the sheets rubbing on your laps and stuff.

    duh.

    your body also releases a ton of sweat when you're asleep, which can cause them to bleed, as well as smell really bad after a while.

    Hokai, so I bought my first pair of nudies today, Thin Finn shiny grey.
    How long should I wait before the first wash, and how long between washes?
    After reading a bit on this forum it seems Nudie jeans in general lose a lot of color for each wash... :(

    Since the term "dry" doesn't appear to be in the name of the model you bought, I'm guessing that it's a pre-wash. If this is the case, then washing it won't matter.

    quoted for truth.


    Just treat them like any other jeans.

    Nope, I don't like dry jeans, I think they are way too dark in color and also they are too stiff.
    I couldn't really understand the second part of your post but I interpreted it that you mean that I don't have to worry about them losing color?

    Sorry for my bad english... :-/

    No, you don't have to worry about them losing color. They are a pre-wash, so you can not do much to change how they look.

    I have a question about soaking.. What exactly does it do to your jeans? I can't seem to find an answer anywhere but I've seen many people doing it especially with raw japanese denim.

    People soak japanese denim because it isn't sanforized. You have to soak those jeans to get them to shrink down to size. A simple soak often doesn't shrink it entirely, but enough that they can be worn.

    People will also soak other jeans just to lift off some of the dirt, or remove starch, or other such reasons.

    tailoring

    is there a way to tailor jeans (taking in the waist) without ruining the selvedge inseam? i have no idea about this so it could be a fairly obvious answer.
    is this the right thread for this?

    I'm sure that a tailor could probably do this. They tend to be able to do just about anything that you ask. I'd suggest checking with one before buying anything that's too big.

    Also, for future reference, the selvage is on the out-seam, not the inseam (with one exception from Cheap Monday).

    EDIT: apparently Cabl3 beat me to this one...

    Okay, so I bought my pair of even stevens just about six months ago and have worn them pretty regularly since. It's been summer, so wearing them everyday in 80 and 90 degree heat is kind of out of the question, but I would pretty regularly change into them at night when it got cooler, when I would go out, etc. That's not to say I didn't sweat in them plenty.

    The denim hides stains really well but I've started to accumulate more obvious ones here and there, especially a grass stain on the left knee. Ideally, I wouldn't wash them yet but the denim has definitely changed texture (much softer and more flexible compared to brand new ones) but the biggest problem is how much the stretched. I remember the first time I tried them on I was worried they may be a little too tight and now it looks like I'm wearing a pair of jeans I've lost a substantial amount of weight in when I haven't.

    So, I'm on the fence, I've bought a new pair of Slim Jims recently and have been wearing them much more frequently than this older pair because I prefer the way they fit compared to the overly baggy Even Stevens. So here are some pictures of them, the whiskers are almost non-existent but the honeycombs, knees and the wallet are pretty well worn-in. So give me the best advice possible. To wash or not to wash?
