Recreating Pre-Pressed Stacking

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 

I washed a pair of my jeans recently and (obviously) the pre-pressing all disappeared. Does anyone have a technique for recreating the stacking?

Jasonloveszathan technique is very good but there is a simpler way. Soak the area with spray starch then crease the area and hold it with clothes pegs. Hang in warm area till dry them boom! all done. It's what they do in the diesel stores.

Wow, the ideas in this thread and the one linked are pretty cool and resourceful!

Does pre pressed stacking always disappear on the first wash? If so, what's the point of having it?

Good point Lavoisier. But of us here don't wash our jeans that much. I know that sounds disgusting but I never sweat in them or get them dirty. I just chuck em in the freezer if they need to be freshened up.

I don't wash 'em much either, I use them up to 20x before giving them a wash. But it sucks that the stacking goes right on the first wash. Would professional dry cleaning preserve it?

ive washed my 8y0's a couple times and they still have wrinkles on the bottom. not sure if it's cause of the spandex blend or what.  all my other 3d jeans i have yet to wash. sounds gross but i mean as long as you're wearing underwear they're gonna be clean on the inside and as long as you're not doing anything too labor intensive they should be fine on the outside too.

I would definitely try this w/ my Shioner 8PN where some stacking would be nice ...  so do you just mix starch powder w/ water and spray it?  how much starch vs water ratio should we mix??

 

on a side note after looking at the links I miss jeanetic's fit posts... Phukette you know how he's doing lately?

Yes and the tag says not to dry clean. You could always hand wash them and leaving the pre stacking area out of the water.

Jeanetic is doing really well. He's so busy with the young family(from what I hear his little guy is getting up to all sorts of mischief as only toddlers do!!!) and college. He regularly checks the blog but just doesn't have the time to regularly post. Such a shame, he's a great guy and this place is all the poorer without him. But hes doing the right thing by concentrating on his studies. You should hit him a PM, I'm sure he'd love to hear from you.

Heres how I made my stacking on Thavar 806p.

 

Before:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Than just roll the denim on the potiche, sprayed with a starch from drug store and made a stackings, the same method on the thighs

 

 

  

 

Put some bottles in for bether manipulation and push up the denim:

 

  

 

 

Let them dry during night and the effect ist amazing:

That is just genius! Recreating the hems is easy enough. But thighs have eluded us for ages. They look amazing!

I bought a starch in spray from drug store, costs only 1€, so I didnt mix a starch with watter.

@ vlcisko Great job on the jeans they look bloody good. so you made the pre-stacking and just sprayed the strach spray over them and let them dry over night ? planning to do for 8Y0 and thinking of doing for the whole jeans to get the stiffness back any suggestions ?

At first I sprayed the place where I want to make the stackings. Dont save the starch, let the denim make wet and then form the denim.

Picked up the spray starch and thought I give this a try .. few pairs I want to do, but first up is semi pre wrinkled Tepphar 8PK.  its still in drying process so no finished photo yet... but here's before and during process.

 

Before:

 

 

During: 

 

 

 

 

I used some bobby pins to help hold the wrinkles in place while its drying.. we'll see how it turns out tmr!!!

Hi denim collezctor, so, how is your jeans now ?!

post #24 of 40

Hello - thanks for asking.. they worked out great.. but its not crisp like a brand new pair.. maybe just the starch i got isn't strong?  I've done the same thing to my Thavar 886b last night.. its still drying.  I actually took out my blow dryer and blew at it for a bit to maybe help make it harden... 

 

I should really get my 8PK hemmed to 30L... 32L is just tad too much stack..

Maybe you just didnt used enough starch. On your photos you sprayed only a small place on the thighs. Let them make enough wet from starch and spray the whole thighs.
