So i was interested in finding out how to restore prestacking on some of my jeans but wasnt quite sure what would work and what not so i starterd looking around in the blog and stumbled upon a tip from TwistedLogic that sounded pretty easy and i gave it a shot. i dont know if any of you guys has ever tried it but i definetely recommend it if you can. its actually kinda trickier than it may sound or seem, but thats maybe just because im still considered a "rookie" in Diesel Jeans even though my collection has grown a lot in the past few months. i got Krooley 888R for like 50euros a week ago or so, so it was the cheapest of all my pairs and, subsequently, it turned out to be my "guinea pig" naturally, since it was a used pair, it had not a single sign of prestacking. so, i started with the stacking of the ankles which seemed to be the easiest part and i can say im pretty happy about the result, well considering the fact that it was the first time applying this method etc etc, the result is fine. i tried them on and it seems to hold quite well. next, i think im going to try on giving back some of the stacking on the front, under the pockets etc. i tried doing some of it last night but couldnt figure out a way to make it as symmetrical as possible.
heres what twisted logic suggest:
speaking of stacking, the guys in the local Diesel store taught me a trick they use to make stacking.
they use those formulas for cloth ironing ( like Merito ) .
On a dry jeans, spray a fair amount on the areas that u want to make a stacking until it get really wet then make a small uneven folds and use cloth clips to hold the folds u made ( use as much clips as u want to make sure the folds u made will stay hold ).
u can do that the on the cuffs, back of the knees areas and under the front pockets too.
Finally, hang them from the waist and wait for them to dry ( u dont have to hang them outside in the sun, just keep them in ur room even if took them more than a day to dry ).
i used Merito, and not much of it. just until the part i wanted was wet enough.
and here are the before- after photos of it.
