just use a sharpie.
Can't wait to get my first pair of raw/selvedage quality denim. Learned a lot over the years reading threads. Waiting til I get down to a better size, close to being down 100lbs, until I buy a pair. Almost down 4 sizes.
Anyways, in the mean time I needed a new pair of jeans and my mom picked me up a pair of Paper Denim jeans from Marshall's (not a fan of shopping there personally). They're a darker finish which isn't too bad but the stitching on the inner leg and pockets is white and I'm not a fan of the look.
In summary, anyone dyed stitching before? I know it's probably not worth it on 17$ pair of jeans but I figured why not for now. I know I can get fabric dye at a craft store or grocery store but didn't know if there is a better way.
I just got my first pair of selvedge jeans. Reading through these posts I see a lot of talk about soaking and such. Can someone please enlighten me of the process? The point? I love denim and really want to know what I'm doing to keep them as nice as possible (as stated, first pair of selvedge).
Overall they fit me great! But they are a little loose on the back side like right below my ass! Can I fix this?
And any tips and suggestions as to what I should do before throwing them into rotation would be great!
Here are some pictures...
Wear em and wear the sh!te out of em. The rule of thumb is go 6 months before a wash. I try to go as long as I can but sometimes I get them too dirty. The best advice ive got since I started wearing raw is dont treat them like expensive jeans. Ive never presoaked but all my raw jeans have been a little tight from the start to allow stretch. If they are big now they will only get bigger as you wear them.

Looking to replace a pair of pbj 007's. Started working out and the jeans are now too tight in the thighs. I really like the way the 007's are dyed. Anyone owned a pair of the 009's? or better yet owned both and able to comment on the fit differences? The specs on Blue in Greens site show them to be a little more relaxed fit yet still have the same dye process as the 007's
Anyone want a pair of 007's with a solid week or 2 of wear? Barely any fade yet. 30" waist 35" inseam
* Size 30 (31" waist, 9.5" rise, 9.75" thigh, 8" knee, 34.5" inseam, 7.75" leg opening)
Links sucks but page 3 of denim http://www.blueowl.us/scripts/psp/bi...l?page=welcome

My Nudie SJ Organic Dry Dark 30/30 measure at 31" waist, 10.75" thigh, and 7.75" knee after about 8 months of wear no washes
so I know it's not raw denim but I got my first pair of Selvage denim from gap two months ago and they have been getting a good amount of time so far. I can already see the fading taking it and it's pretty cool.
They are the one rinse wash which is too bad but I think I might go out and grab my real first pair of raw denim sometime this month. Probably APCs or Nudies.
stay in drugs, eat school, and don't do vegetables
I've worn them on a couple of occasions. I have a lot of other pairs of denim that I wear. My 501s are my dailies (black & blue) and I have other pairs I rock on occasion. I'll rock them when my other jeans get very worn.
