Undistressed Dark Indigo Wash? - Page 2

post #26 of 34
Thread Starter 

Thanks for the info. Hope I'm okay as I use a gentle wash!

post #27 of 34

I used to wash my jeans because I tought it was a normal thing to do until I joined this forum. I realized indeed that when  you wash your jeans it takes off the dirtyness, the 3D effects, the softness, everything. So I don't wah my new pairs but I think it's dirty not to wash them so I'm torn between having my jeans clean and destroying them or keeping them dirty and saving their quality.

My friends laugh at me when they hear that I pay big money for jeans I can't wash, but I understand them icon_razz.gif

I sorta lean on the side of cleanliness most of the time, doing gentle washes or freezing are good imo.

Really? I thought Diesel didn't make any true raw jeans... you know, cardboard-like, never touched a drop of water...

Just wash them in cold water with a gentle detergent, like woolite... but yes, only when it's needed.

 

I try not to wash my jeans too often, but I only take special care with my raw PRPSs...

 

And I'm fine with predistressed effects and even tears on my jeans, but I can't stand stains, it's just not right.

i dont consider that to be the definition of 'true raw denim'.  880g has 3d treatment applied to the entire jean. they still fade like a pair of raw denim. ive had mine a little over a year w/ near daily wear to the office. i'll have to post pics soon of the progress though it's not too drastic!

Sorry, but for me any kind of treatment after manufacturing other than maybe adding some starch (which I don't know if it's added to the fabric before or after they make the jeans) means no raw... Raw is, well, raw. dunno.gif

 

Even predistressed jeans continue to fade (i.e., they lose indigo and wear out in some parts) and that doesn't make them raw.

 

So I guess we disagree on that definition, but it's not like it's written on stone I suppose.

 

I've also been wearing my raw PRPS for almost a year now (weekdays only, not weekends), and the fading is not drastic either, the fact that I have an office job (well, working from home now) doesn't help with that. People who get better results are usually young guys who do cycling, skating and all sorts of things while wearing their jeans... I'm too old for that stuff now.

 

PS: just to assess the degree of rawness, do your Diesels bleed indigo and put blue stains on everything?

post #34 of 34

they only bleed if i rub them w/ like a wet paper towel or something. once i post pictures you'll see that they fade like a traditional pair of raw denim. not sure what the difference is between starch being added vs resin. they're both added afterward.
