At last count I had over 20 jeans. Not very acurate I know, but I’m terrible at math.
They’re all in various stages of disrepair (some bought that way) and all in a variety of washes and fits from a plethora of brands.
Recently though, I received my first pair of ‘raw” denim – a pair of G-Star Raw jeans you may have seen me wearing on my Instagram lately – now, raw denim (or dry denim) is denim that has not been washed after dying and is left in a solid un destressed state (SPOILER ALERT for below video)
The only problem for me was…well, how do I keep it like this?
Apparently (according to the salesmen at all high end denim retailers) you should never wash your jeans! Ever! The fabric softener ruins them…blah blah, etc etc.
Fine, but also GROSS!
So I turned to the internet and found this:
I mean, who’s going to argue with Mr Porter right?
Okay. Stay fancy.
