    If you want to shrink them, chuck them in the dryer for 40 minutes on HOT.

    Main thing is to do it inside out and chuck in maybe a few towels to lesson the "damage".

    You can cold soak at basically any time. Since nudies are sanforized, you shouldn't have any real shrinkage (just a little depending on how they've stretched). Indigo is lost more through the agitation in a wash than the water, so you should lose almost nothing. The jeans will still feel different after a soak because of losing the factory starch, so if you don't mind them being a little softer, then go for it.

    Cold soaks don't do much for shrinkage i think. You'll need hot water.

    Stupid Question?

    Hi, guys. I know NOTHING about raw denim, so here goes:

    I recently tried on a pair of Slim Jim Dry Blacks. To me, they look dark navy, not black. I don't *want* black jeans. I'm fine with the way they look now. When I fade them out, do they fade to black/grey or a blue color? I know this is a really stupid sounding question, sorry for my ignorance!

    Also - do you ever have problems with color transfer onto leather items like wallets? Thanks for any help!

    it's a black overdye on blue, hence why it might look dark navy or a metallic black to some people. they fade to a black/greyish color, only if you put some good time into them. they take a while to fade.

    so, to answer your question, you're probably gunna wanna go with another pair since you don't like black. i personally believe that everyone should own at least one black jean though.

    and the wallet deal, i use a black wallet so i can't help you out there.
