    Alright, by reading the denim threads, I know that I'll have to soak them in water and stuff, but can anyone make a full EDU on how to do it? :naughty:

    Yea, i know this sounds fucking noobish, but whatever... i want to do it right if I'm getting 200-300$ jeans...

    this only really applies to raw unsanforized jeans

    and if you dont know what that is, then don't worry about soaking

    I dunno, i am going to Hong Kong pretty soon and plan to pick up some nice denim there... and all i hear about is people soaking them. So I thought that was one of the first things to do...

    Just wear your jeans for 6 months and don't wash them. You'll have a whole six months to learn how to wash them.

    soaking won't necessarily make them shrink, but if they start getting loose and not so form fitting like they once were, a nice warm soak with no agitation should bring em back to shape. just soaked my skulls, they fit sexay now :mamoru:

    There seems to be alot of fakes on Yahoo Auction in HK.. but I'm not sure if there are fakes in stores...

    i remember that they were talking of a pretty good shop in HK in SuperFuture.. so I'll prolly go check it out.... I'm still thinking if I should get a pair of Diors or go with some Japanese high-quality stuff.... or..... both :noes:
