You guys love this style...here is mine at about 40-50ish wears and my brother's after his FIRST wear...

They look the same, but his actually have the tangible creases:

NEWER ONE HAS THE BELT!




So the RULING in this case is...the depth on the 72D creases is so magical that even when they are filed down (like mine) after dozens of wears they STILL look like they did when BRAND NEW...

I know the feeling.

I love these jeans, but I feel like they've stretched a bit too much...

No bro, I haven't yet...the key is to let these biatches air out (overnight in a well circulated room) after a few days of wear (or any jean you wear extensively rather).

I don't intend on washing it unless its a must...

72D + washed = never the same again
post #158 of 358
^how so?
post #159 of 358
little pieces of it's "SOUL" wash away each time or at least the resin does if you need something legit.

^then mine will never be washed...ever...
post #161 of 358
I would wear mine more if they were a tad shorter. I can only wear them with my Fancy shoes.
post #162 of 358
My creases almost flattened out completely with one wear! I think the tightness and my phone are to blame though. Definitely carry a murse until these loosen up. :P

FALSE. if you wear them enough, the resin wears away anyways. I can tell you that I wore mine more than 80 times before soaking them, and honestly there was NO difference in the feel / rigidity of the jean. the starch is lost with consistent and constant wear, not washing. te prometo

I finally wore my 72Ds for the first time since New Year's and was happy to find that airing them out for 2-3 weeks worked magic. The smoke smell is completely gone, they stiffend back up a bit and they still have some of that that peculiar "new from the store" smell left in 'em.
post #166 of 358
has anybody had any bleeding problem with these? I've worn them about 9-10 times now, and it's gettin time to add a belt to keep them up. didn't want to wear any light belts if they're bleeders. I haven't noticed it on shoes yet, but...
post #167 of 358
Definitely don't bleed. Friction will cause them to fade pretty easily though, my back pocket has a fairly pronounced wallet wear and the insides of my seams look "scratched" almost
post #168 of 358
awesome. I've been puttin off wearing light spanks or belts.
and I'm fine with the scratching. just making them look sweeter
post #169 of 358
mine are covered in salt. i might throw them in the wash... they need to be reshrunk too i think.

OR BEST STRETCHING TECHNIQUE:

Get a solid door and put the hems in the door (as in on the vertical seal above the lock). Pull at them for a bit and you'll get your inch--EASY...trust me me and my bro ALWAYS do this because he wears a 30L, but needs it to be 31-31.5" and when he gets them new they work, but after a wash they are too short...
Thanks a lot for reply !!! Just how wet they have to be doing this ?
post #171 of 358
i finally washed mine. there was so much salt on the hems that it was rock solid

warm/warm on delicate, and then a bit of low heat to take out the wrinkles.

they look no different than when i bought them. and they're still stiff. maybe a little bit lighter in weight, but they're a bit more snug now, and the inseam is probably half an inch shorter which is good.

I usually do this dry...wet stretch seems to give you more stretching initially and then shrinks more when it starts to dry (from my experiences)...my brother figures if you stretch the when its dry you'll get the perfect length when you wear it--dry (I hope )...

Same here. Mine are doing alright just because I only wear them every couple of weeks. Because of this, they've retained much of their stiffness and shape.

Still, I feel as though I'll really be kicking myself if I don't get a "backup" just for posterity's sake. Sure, it's easy to get a pair now - but 6 months from now, 72D could become one of those sought-after commodities, like Zathan 8AA.
post #174 of 358
Any new progress?

After reading this thread I feel like getting a pair too, there's my size left on jjdenim
