    i don't know if i'd bother if i were you- that's some pretty minor damage. i'd personally leave it, at least until it seems like there's some serious undermining of the construction going on.

    I thought prevention is better than after-care (?).
    Might just knot a new thread on the loose one and stitch it back in...that could work.
    But as it is chainstitched, there shouldn't much happen. You're right.

    interesting idea. main concern is, that the remaining thread won't unravel
    will think it over

    i doubt it will, its seems every jean i've ever bought has something similar on it somewhere right from the start, and nothing's ever come of it. most contrast stitchings are pretty heavily reinforced elsewhere, so i wouldn't worry too much, but if you are worried then by all means fix it, it's just that denim is a pretty difficult material to do cosmetic touch-ups on, especially invisibly, simply because of the thickness of the fabric. you might actually make it stick out worse.

    By no means the 'correct' way, just my way.

    yeah you're right...for me it's the cosmetic aspect of it. I'm sure it'll hold up well. let us see if I fix or not

    Will do. :)

    I'm mainly just concerned about the inseam shrinkage, but I'll just stretch them out a bit afterwards i suppose.

    I got 2 pairs of Average Joe DH. One i worn for 8 months before washing, the other i brought 2nd hand.
    The ones i brought brand new the blue is darker than the 2nd hand pair if you know what i mean. Even though they have faded more the blue is still darker than the 2nd hand pair which have little fading but a ligher 'sea' blue.
    Why is this, is it because the 2nd hand pair were washed too quickly or something.

    If it's got no contrast in the combs/whiskers then it might have been washed earlier. If the overall colour is a lot more faded than your pair which you've washed only once then the 2nd hand pair sounds like its been washed quite a number of times already.

    The 2nd hand pair has really no contrast, whiskers etc i reckon as you said it was washed quite early on, before the 6 months of wear. Goes to show that delaying washing them makes a big difference in how they look later on.

    Yes, that AND I also meant that from your description it sounds as if the second hand pair has been washed more than twice. It's that or either the previous owner decided to bake his/her jeans in the sun excessively.

    So I'm about to wash my DBC slim jims. Here's the question; my washing machine soaks anything if it's being washed by itself, to the point that it can't really hang dry. I was thinking of putting an old white towel that I don't care about in with them to soak up some of the water. Is this a good idea, or will it somehow mess with the jeans?

    Hey I just have a question about getting jeans tailored. I bought some TFDS and they are a bit too small in the waist area, and I just wanna know if it's possible to move the button about half an inch to three quarters of an inch towards the outside seam, giving more waist room. I just thought I'd ask before I make the journey to the tailor, hopefully a mod will see this and allow this post to show pretty quickly!

    Thanks!

    Ok. I wore my Nudie TF UICoated, 2 month daily wear, to 3 concerts 3 nights in a row and they were pretty nasty. So when I got home I hung them outside to air out. The next day it began to pour. I had honestly forgot about the jeans and remembered they were outside half way through the storm. My make shift clothes line hangs under my deck so when I retrieved the jeans only the bottom half were soaked. I brought them in to dry.

    There was small to no fading on the jeans, my wear creases appear to be small to gone. And it appears the coating is gone on the lower half of the jeans. I started a new project a few weeks ago, when I got a new pair of jeans I was really excited about, so the TF UIC were kind of on the back burner(for now). Plus I have 2 other projects waiting in the closet.

    My question is to you?

    A. Friends like them dark, should I just wash them.

    B. Wear them, who cares?

    C. Soak them?

    D. OTher?

    Any Advice Appreciated

    Thanks

    @TDaySpawn: I don't see how they can't be washed alone, what kinda damage does a bit of extra water do?

    ┬ęsups: sup. I had the exact same problem with my 2834TFDS. You shouldn't go to the tailor's for this, just e-mail Nudie and ask for a repair kit. Apart from thread and sand paper it contains two buttons. I did this and put the Nudie button on my waist abut 2 centimeters from the original. https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Photos/2009-12-30 008.jpg?w=8bbdd472 It looks kinda funny but I think it's okay seeing as I died a little every time I sat down. I also wore a belt that covered the buttons and a bit of the fly

    @Mikeg1: I personnaly never mind if I'm in rainy weather when I'm wearing my jeans and I haven't noticed that it would affect my fades. But I wear only indigo jeans so it might be possible that Nudie's coatings react differently. But I think you're just fooling yourself, wear them for a few weeks and take another look ;>>

    B. Wear them, who cares ... anyway the shine will come back after some wear even if some of the coating have disapperad in the rain.
