    I like a ladder pattern on the outer seam of my jeans when they start to show wear as the picture of my RRDG shows

    Do you guys iron the outer seam of your dry jeans before you start wearing them?

    You mean in raw state? I never iron my jeans, not before wearing and not after washing. Traintracks will appear in time anyway, esp. after machine washes.

    I know that, but the outer seam (on the inside) has to be flat and each side folded to one side. This is what i mean (copied from Raw Denim):

    ""Often times, the selvedge outseam gets folded in two, producing a one-sided train track. From my experience, I didn’t really think about flattening the selvedge before wearing it, so my current N&F jeans have one-sided train tracks on certain areas and two-sided train tracks on other areas.

    How should one remedy this problem? It’s simple – iron the selvedge from the start!""

    It's a "problem" I have on some jeans, and ironing when new sounds like an acceptable solution to me.

    Although one may argue against it beeing a problem, and say It gives personality to the thing.
