Just bought Used/worn Skulls Unwashed

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just bought a pair of Skulls on ebay. They have been worn by the seller for a week and he is sending them unwashed. What's the best way to reset the creases and clean them without losing too much indigo and without much shrinkage? Gentle cycle cold wash with woolite and salt, inside out and hangdry?

Thanks

I mean, what's the best way to wash raw denim? I'm new at this.

A week? You don't need to do anything to them. I think most skulls are sanforized so shrinkage is not an issue. I wouldn't even bother to wash them.

Yes, I'm sure it's fine, but there's a little voice in my head going, "what if he has crabs!"

Don't worry about it, really. Crabs are treatable

Then why did you even think about buying used dry denim?

Nah, I'm really psyched to get 'em. I just hope they're a good fit.
I'm not really too worried about cooties.

Wonderland, I got 2 pair of N&F weirdguy in size 33. One pair is organic indigo and the other is a heavier, darker indigo. They feel really well made, but they stretched like crazy...I think I need a size 32 or 31 in N&F...so if anyone wants to buy 'em send me a PM! I have 100% Ebay feedback.

Blundstone 550 boots are awesome. They are faster to put on than Vans slip ons, heavier wearing than made in England doc martens and keep getting better with age. I just got a new pair. I actually do have lots of footwear for all occasions, but yeah I could have done better than a white tshirt and workboots for those Skull pics. I was in a hurry. lol
