    Thread: DIRRRRTY DENIM

    1. 11-08-2007 11:53 AM #386
      you need to starch them til they are damp and then wear them until they are dry...

      i always sprayed them hanging up w/ a good coat on the back of the knees (honeycombs), the lap, and the hem... then i put them on and sat down and played some halo or something for a while until they were dry. what makes the creases is when it dries into a crease... not soaking it w/ starch, then letting it dry flat.

      think about ironing w/ starch... you spray the starch on, then you iron over the starch so it dries into the fabric... if you starch a fold, then iron over it... chances are that fold is gonna stay. if you starch a flat area, then iron over it... chances are that area is gonna stay flat and wont hold a crease as easily as that place that was folded, then starched, then ironed.

      am i making sense?

      i used to starch then put them in the drier for 20 minutes or so. basically starch needs heat to work, right? when you wear em the heat of your body activates it, when you iron em the iron gets it. i figured the heat of the drier worked on the whole jean, and it did make them feel crispy....until they were h&m jeans and sucked at life

      yeah, the big thing with me starching em is that they were just getting softer than i had liked. if the combs came along better, so be it. i just wanted them a little bit stiffer

    10. 11-08-2007 10:08 PM #395
      Well I'm sure you can only starch the parts you want to define your creases

      On another note... I'm still loving my good society denim, wearing right now. I'm kinda short 5'7 and they bunch up at the leg, it looks ok to me, and I can cuff them too with like a 2" cuff (where they naturally seem to want to cuff)

      And they're already honey combing some...

      only thing I've noticed about these jeans is that some of the denim has actually bled on my hands (very light blue on my hands) hehe

      well thats the standard inseam. it'll still be long on him, but maybe not after a soak.

      well im 6'1 so im not saying that the 29/34 is too short... its just that id like a little stacking going on... and i should have some of that action w/ a 37 inch inseam. after the first soak they wont be quite that long, but still longer than my nudies.

      are you supposed to soak after wearing them a long time to see the whiskering??

      well washing them releases alot of indigo, so it sometimes shows a little more wear after a hot wash.

      if it's unsanforized denim you really should soak them before wearing as well to get most of the shrinkage out of the way, or else the first time you do soak/wash them all your months of work is going to shift a few inches higher and look really stupid.


    31. 11-11-2007 04:07 PM #416
      damn I don't know if I could handle any more shrinkage on my good societies... any smaller and I don't know if I could even wear them

      waist and thighs will stretch out after a week or two of wear, it can be really uncomfortable at first, and might look silly though

      i have a pair of cheap mondays like that...at first they were skin tight in the thighs and waist, and i was afraid i was going to pop the top button off. now they've relaxed and i need a belt to keep them sitting how i'd like.


    33. 11-11-2007 04:27 PM #418
      i doubt the good societies are unsanforized though so you dont have to soak them... but when you wash them for the first time they will shrink


    34. 11-11-2007 05:50 PM #419
      ub you gonna soak your skulls right off the back? mine haven't seen water yet, i dont think they're going too. oh, and their also starting to fall apart allready

      A few things you might want to consider. If you didn't try-on the jeans before buying them and they fit rather big, definitely wash them before anything. You want to make sure they fit great before wearing them everyday and getting your creases. The reason is because your jeans will fit different and develop different creases if they are baggy. Then, after you wash them, they'll shrink and they'll develop different creases after some wear.

      It's up to you.
