    Anyone know where I can find a copy of The 501XX A Collection Of Vintage Jeans book?
  10. As for anyone in the labor trade today not caring how their clothes look, I would respectfully disagree. And if you look at old photos, there has always been a pride in the mens appearance.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I think you’re looking at a very different scale. Dye not penetrating to the cores of yarns is dependent on the dyeing process, as you’ve said, and yarns that aren’t dyed to their cores will fade as the outsides of the yarns wear away. Regardless of what dyeing method is used, different dyes will act differently. Some (reactive dyes) will permanently cling to the fibers, changing their appearance. Others (fugitive dyes, like indigo) will work their way into the fibers without actually attaching themselves. How well they work their way in will depend, among other things, on the size of the dye molecules. Fugitive dyes will generally wash out over time—though slowly, if used correctly—whereas reactive dyes will be more permanent. Anything happening on the fiber scale should be pretty independent of anything happening on the yarn scale, apart from informing what sorts of techniques should be used. Ai denim is (generally) dyed to the core using fugitive indigo dye. Iron Heart’s SBG denim is likely dyed to the core using a reactive dye.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @kiya - I question this statement from the article - “Indigo is a large molecule that doesn’t really penetrate cotton fibers, so it’s sitting on top of the cotton fiber...” It this really true? We've all seen an image of a clump of denim yarns that have been cut to show that the dye doesn't penetrate to the core of the yarns. Is this because of the size of the dye molecules? I have a really hard time believing that. I think it's more to do with the dying process - how long and how many times the yarns are dipped into a vat of dye, how the dye is brewed, how tight the cotton yarns are spun, the type of cotton and how's it's treated, among other factors. Afterall, AI denim is typically dyed thoroughly to the core and doesn't fade. As an example, how is IH's super black denim made to not fade? Is it the type of dye and/or how it's dyed? I assume the yarns are dyed to the core?

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    And along this thought train, I've had this thought for quite a while - denim was originally developed as inexpensive work wear, made to be durable and protective, but would eventually wear out, be tossed away and replaced. That's the way modern work wear is made. Nobody in any labor trade today (OK, maybe 0.01% does, and buys the kind of clothes for work we discuss here) give any f%$ks about how their clothes look after being worn on the job. Therefore, denim wasn't dyed to the core of the yarns because it was less expensive to do so. The clothes looked good on the shelf when new, but after they were worn for work and were dirty, stained and torn, who cared how they looked. Fading was an unintentional by-product of making work-wear economical/affordable.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    When I first discovered the raw denim rabbit hole and was searching, I came across a vid on YT of some young Indonesian fellas sea-washing their brand new IH's. After they were rinsed with a fresh water hose in the back yard and dried, they did indeed have Sik Fadez. I get why it works - when wet, denim is most susceptible to indigo loss, and rubbing sand abrades the surface of the creases, accelerating what would happen with normal wear. I'm in no way of advocating this, and I think it's as stupid as sleeping in your jeans (but sometimes that just happens), using spray starch on the lap and behind the knee, and using some sort of waxy substance on the lap and/or behind the knees for grit to adhere to and therefore accelerate abrasion/fading. Yeah, I've heard of all of those things here on SuFu, and I haven't been around that long. I echo Kyle's @coldsummer sentiments above, and don't get why some fellas want fast-fading denim. Over a longer period of time, fast-fading denim will eventually loose more dye and look completely washed out.

    I also can't imagine the embarrassment of walking your jeans around the beach and hoping that no one will see your washing ritual and ask you what you're doing... Well, you can probably get away with it at Venice beach lol

    Does anyone have exp with climashield vs primaloft? Looks like primaloft maintains warmth when wet but would rather have warmer insulation over wet performance since I’d wear it under a shell anyway
