RAW denim in the rain?

post #1 of 7

So I wore my phat new TR raws to work today only to find out its supposed to rain. Is this gonna fuck up the wearing-in period if they get wet right now?

This is kinda funny, yesterday it was a sunny day, I get on the bus, it starts to turn grey, as i'm approaching my stop, it starts to POUR!! I run for my life to get to work, my jeans are getting soaked, (my RR nudies Dry Selvage) I get in, the rain stops like right away!! My jeans were fine, they kinda got a little more crunchy once they dried up a bit, but didn't ruin the wash at all.

yeah the rain lately has been sporadic. i think you should be fine though cause its not like the rain has detergent in it :P i think if anything, the effects due to rain will be unnoticeable to the human eye and if you're that anal you can just wear it hard for a few extra days than you orginally planned :P

im thinking in the last few days of my greycast, i may go either a) slide around in the grass or b) slide around in mud

not sure what color tone i want right now :P

A little rain would probably help them wear in a little faster and crease harder, I've seen people post on mynudies that spray water on their dry's to achieve this.

spraying water on them tightens them back up. the water creates new bonds in the original starch. its pretty much like spraying starch on them but not just as well.
