How to wash your jeans
So how do you go about washing your jeans? Well, there’s a few things to keep in mind
when you wash your dry, pre-washed and black denim.
DRY INDIGO DENIM
We recommend 6 or more months of daily wear before washing. Why? Because we dig that worn in look where your jeans tell a story. Washing your denim too early is great if you want an even, clear blue tone. There are no right or wrong way to break in denim as long as you love and respect your jeans.
These have already been "worn in" and washed during production, and you could go ahead and wash your jeans straight away. However, if they aren’t dirty but you feel the need to freshen them up, we recommend you take the environment into consideration and hang them outside for while instead of washing them.
DRY BLACK DENIM
Even though you might get some beautiful wear and tear in terms of honeycombs and mustaches, your black jeans will lose the color faster. All our black denim options can be re-dyed, so if you want them to stay pitch black, we recommend you do this every now and then.
TURN THE JEANS INSIDE OUT before washing.
Use little detergent without bleach to prevent snakeskin or bad wash effects. For black denim use a detergent made for black fabrics. Once the washing cycle done, immediately stretch the inseam and waist line to minimize the shrinkage rate and let them hang dry. All denim retracts when washed and they might feel somewhat tight when you put them on. Don’t worry, they will stretch out after a while.
