Wash before wear?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

Do you wash your jeans first after you bought it from the store before wearing it? I bought a pair from the Diesel store today. As we were walking to the cash register, the sales person said 'this is the only pair we have, I tried it myself'. So now I feel gross wearing it knowing he tried it on. On to the washer it goes. So I'm just wondering if people wash their jeans or new clothing first before wearing.

Nope, I never wash my diesels, ever!

I also never wash my jeans. It is a very rare occurrence. It only happens in extreme circumstances.

Also never.

Dude........... you don't know how many people tried your new bought clothing, you are not even aware of it... People buy here 2nd hand jeans which are worn for years, they don't even care. I have done that too.
I also try never wash my jeans.

Never ever wash my jeans. The only item I wash before wear is leather jackets. To create a worn vintage look. Allsaints is the only brand where this isn't necessary. But jeans, no never.

If ever I buy 2nd hand jeans I'd wash them in bleach. 509.gif

Always wash jeans before putting them on. And also it helps if you need to tailor them cause they won't run in any more.

That's assuming you'd want to tailor them. I generally will never do that. Also, don't listen to this guys advice. If you wash your Diesels before wearing them you may ruin the factory baked effects. If you can help it, never wash your jeans

rather... you WILL ruin the 3-d evolution treatment... which you paid for. don't wash.

Lol thats quite limited to say. Well I guess if you don't know how to wash clothing, then its better to give it to your mum.

post #12 of 31

i'd rather not help destroy my jeans. and we might all send our jeans to your mum if she can wash a pair of pre-creased Diesels and maintain the creasing to factory standards. but if you've got the time and energy to painstakingly hand wash your jeans regularly, more power to you.

Amen to that. The best advice for jeans is to of wash them as much as possible. If you buy Levi's and don't care about your jeans then do it all you'd like.

I live in a hot, humid climate, if I never washed my jeans they would get gross, simple as that. I wash many if not most of my Diesels in the washing machine and the the dryer. Some of the more "special" washes that have lots of creasing in them get a handwash in the bathtub then dried on the clothesline. I can wear a pair more than once before washing if I'm not sweating in them but again the idea of never washing them is foreign to me.
The irony here to me is that Diesel made their name by making jeans that come looking like they're years old already. At least have them dry cleaned occasionally.

It says right on the tag not to dry clean or be put in the dryer.

 

 

Get febreze!

haha! Well, I'm guessing from the above posts that you're a guy...just be glad you're not looking for pre-owned women's jeans. I'm sure I don't have to describe some of the stains I've found in secondhand pairs (all of which I inspect thoroughly BEFORE wearing or selling...lol)

 

Aside from that, though, I don't wash before wearing. For example, if you get a NWT pair and wash them, fully intending to wear them, but then you don't...you've just killed a good chunk of the resale value. I recently bought a pair that the seller confessed she had to take a huge loss on because she'd thrown them in the wash, then only after that realized that they didn't fit her. (She didn't reveal that they probably came to her used, but whatever)

Absolutely not.  almost every pair of diesels ive had changes it's appearence after having been washed.  now i will say i DO wash them. just very very infrequently. and always always always line dry.  like maybe every 6 months or so, but that's only if ive been wearing them a lot.  i live in a hot humid climate too. and as long as you're wearing underwear, you shouldnt have to worry about them getting nasty.  if i know im going to be doing some activity where i'll be sweating a lot, i dont wear diesel denim.  simple as that. as far as stains on the outside of the denim 9 times out of 10 if you just get a wash cloth, wet it and rub the spot.  you can get the stain, mark, whatever out, w/out having to wash them completely.

I've seen similarly gross stains on BRAND NEW jeans in the store!

post #25 of 31

I know that when you wearing underwear then it's not that gross but i mean we have to wash them at some point. The jeans do end up getting dirty after a while. I actually wash them every week because i feel dirty if i don't. The thing is i did see some of the fake paint stains wash off after a few washes on my shioner 880w so my point is: we're probably paying way too much money for those jeans considering the quality. How can we pay 250 euros for a pair of jeans that loses their colors after a few washes?

I know i'm going to get some hate comments and i do still love those jeans but i think we're paying too much for them.
