    Hello and sorry if this has already been answered somewhere.

    Its not that uncommon with rain where I come from. Ive been reflecting on how this will affect my jeans. Ive got a pair of sanfordized unwashed jeans that I havent soaked yet or anything. Should I stay inside if it rains so I dont ruin the final result for the fade or should I go out on the bike and ride around in the rain?

    So far Ive been switching pants when I go outside so I dont ruin the work but start to think that maby this is crazy?

    What do you guys think and how do you do when the rain comes?

    I think that might be over thinking it, soaking your jeans doesn't cause very much indigo loss (from what I've heard) and rain would just be a fraction of that. Unless you're standing in pouring rain for hours getting soaked, it doesn't seem like it would be a big deal. It rains a fair amount where I live too and I'll still wear them out in the rain, besides, the point of raw denim is to reflect your own lifestyle (including where you live) right?. I think you should just wear them however you wish and not worry about the result, it's really up to you :p.

    If anything the rain will help add "character" to your jeans. If you live in a place where it rains alot, why shouldnt your jeans reflect that? We all buy these jeans because we want them to reflect the wear and tear of our daily lives. Your jeans won't if you keep them all nice and dry all the time.
