I am pretty sure there is a lot of coolant, oil, gasoline, sweat, snow, rain, blood, and various food sauces on them (does calamansi accelerate the fading process?) I will be washing them in the next couple of months, any tips?
any pictures? It's likely that my jeans will go through the same, so I'd like to know what they'll look like :P

My Nudie Dry Comfort after around a year of wear -

Didn't really get any extreme fading, but I like the way they came out.

Could you please ID these Diors? Is it 19cm UMC? Thanks!

Looks like one of the KvA UMCs. IDK if they really made a 21cm version, like Yoox states there, but it looks like 21cm.

We should have a special thread for iding other stuff than Diesel...
post #1510 of 1664
I'm pretty sure there is no recent 21cm version of UMC. Remember that as the waist size increases on 17cm, 19cm, the inseam length and leg opening increase moderately.
post #1511 of 1664
I thought that as well and know very well about the change in hem width according to waist size. But Yoox used to state their "width at hem" referring to the cuts standard measure, i.e 19cm or 21cm. Same goes for Diesel, btw. This is obviously the best way as they only give that measure once for all sizes in stock. It may have changed though.

If i remember right, there are two KvA UMC releases. The second one was definitely only 19cm and 17.5cm, but I am not sure about the first one.

Anyways, as you said thse might as well be oversized 19cm not 21cm.

Good idea. Feel free to start one. Anthony is on a little hiatus, but I doubt he would mind.

post #1514 of 1664
Welcome and wear those fuckers hard!
post #1515 of 1664
thanks I'll try, but I don't really know how to wear them hard lol
post #1516 of 1664
Nothing will speed up the fading process except regular wear and time. That said wear them non-stop and don't even think about for at least 6 months. And when you finally do washing them do not throw them in the washing machine. What you want to do is soak them in cold water and then hang dry. Honestly the longer you wait the better.
post #1517 of 1664
Go on regular bike rides (<< I hear this helps a bit), ect Both pairs look great tho, fit pics when you get some fades please

^^^sleep in them
post #1519 of 1664
yeah I agree, I'm working on my NC's right now, I might switch though I'm not sure, why should I not wash them though? lol I don't own a bike fam so that won't work, and how long does it take them to fade?

and yeah I've slept in them a few times, but its mad uncomfortable to sleep in jeans like this.
post #1520 of 1664
the indigo will begin to break down around the areas that experience the most wear (seat pockets, behind the knees, stacking around the ankles, etc.) so the longer you go without washing the more intense the fading will be.

also read this. it'll explain a lot

I'm considering sleeping in them but I'm afraid in might cause creases in unwanted places.
post #1522 of 1664
well, it could be, but at least those would be in unpredictable and unexpected places
and they would be caused anyway by your body moving, so they would be personal

not as the usual "cell or wallet fading", which I'm personally not a great fan of
post #1523 of 1664
By unwanted creases, I meant that, for example, the honeycombs may become set higher or lower than the knee area, that sort of stuff. I will still sleep in my dry denim, but only after the starch has cracked well.
post #1524 of 1664
ok, I see your point
post #1525 of 1664
word, I slept in my APC NC, shit I can not sleep comfortable in them but my NS I can just nap away inna dem. lol Then I told my French teacher I was wearing french denim so she gave me extra credit

btw I walked 3 or 4 miles in my APC's today so I think thats a start right?
