    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Maybe but i still get nice fades even using fabric softener. i only use very little. I may try to do it with only water next time and see how that works out. I stopped wearing raw after breaking in my nudies was a very uncomfortable experience i will not forget. I purchased momotaro g004mb model and that was one wash denim. and i have soaked alot of denim with a little softner and they come out feeling very much like the momotaro one wash i have. I always use that as a reference how one wash should be. Also happens to be my worst blunder in high end denim buys, going for waist 30 thinking i could stretch the waist out to 31 (also a time i lost weight and became too skinny). tried everything just didn't happen. my only pair that uses Zimbabwe cotton jeans sadly.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    One wash is a simple way of buying denim but if you do a qick soak with very little fabric softner you can keep more of the starch in the denim and have more control over how much starch is kept in the denim. i find when it stays soaking for too long you lose alot of the starch. when i do a soak i only leave it for 20 mins than use the shower head to get rid of any soap that may still be in the denim using near cold temp. Than hang dry, and always comes out very rigid but more comfortable than wearing raw.

    Edwin Jeans..

    Further update/review of ED-39. After wearing a full day i have to say this is a brilliant fit. Thanks to Edwin for bringing this back. I can confidently say now they are one of my best denim in my collection. i have owned so many brands and for the price your not going to get much better than Edwin's. There is enough space in the thigh area to make it comfortable. also the front rise is very good if you like a tiny bit of space there if you know what i mean. Back rise very similar to any standard 501 maybe marginally higher. For those that are looking for denim that has regular/classic fit (501) with a slight modern twist than this is for you. The Edwin website does this denim fit no justice, as they have some very skinny models wearing them and maybe even wearing them a size up. Wearing it in person the fit was totally different to what it seemed to be like on the Edwin site. Good job i did a google image check. it's a classic fit straight leg very subtle taper but if you like tapered fits don't buy this go for ED-55. (back rise is slightly lower on the ED-55 fit). I have recently started taking gym very seriously and started to get some gains on my legs. and like to use the leg press machine so again having extra room in the thighs is a plus point. This comes in both red and rainbow selvedg. Red pairs are 14oz and the rainbow pairs are 12.8 oz Anyone with big legs or athletic build that is looking for an everyday comfortable pair of denim look no further than the ED-39.

    Fun place to be these days. Also transport connection to central London is convenient as can be. I see alot of people wearing selvedge denim in that area. Never directly talk to anyone about selvedge denim they might think i'm weird which i kind of am.

    Yeah i'm very familiar with Sidney street and the surrounding areas i have grown up in Tower Hamlets, Initially i used to live in poplar, than in my late teens i moved to Bethnal Green. with my family where i lived for 8 years of my life. I have since moved to outer London, but Bethnal Green and Poplar will always be home to me no matter where i move, too many memories. I can still get to Bethnal Green by car within 20 mins, which is what i did today. I left my car parked next to Bethnal Green station and took the tube.

    Just back from shopping getting out of Bethnal Green station. And pics of Bethnal Green area. Very trendy these days but growing up it used to be a very dangerous place still is to an extent.

    My childhood neighbourhood east end of London. Today I decided to go fragrance shopping to central London using the central line from Bethnal Green station. Pic below just coming out of Oxford Circus station. And visiting liberty where they keep very high end fragrances, one of the other things I’m very passionate about.

    Finished the soak all dried up fit perfectly waist was snug to begin with,!but within minutes it got more comfortable. Exactly the type of fit I was looking for. Fits pretty much like the non selvedge 501 u get from any regular store there are slight differences of course. back rise is perfect as too many Edwin ED Numbers with too low of a back rise. I put it next to my regular 501 in the pic below . Also own LVC made in the USA 1966 that one I am now storing away

    Thanks Geeman ok will soak. i can get all the shrinking out of the way this way instead of wearing raw and washing later which can also create blow outs and random fades in wrong areas after drying

    After buying waist 32 and further testing I realised I made a mistake 32w was too big for me. Took the tube back to central London today and exchanged it for 31?waist as they are suppose to fit snug and the Edwin store sales assistant told me the waist will stretch. He even told me to put the 31w on and he check how they fit and said it’s a perfect fit. I also gained a few pounds over Christmas so I am confident the new pair will fit me just fine. Now the question is do I wear raw or soak and wear one wash. I will do a few fit pic in a few months after breaking in. I finally found an Edwin with perfect back rise very similar to the back rise of Levi’s 501. From knee down it has a very slight taper almost straight leg. The leg opening is almost a cm less compared to the knee. I have worn LVC 501made in USA worn once. But will store them now as they will be more in demand soon. These nice ED 39 Will be taking over the job.

    anyone have a well worn ed39 pics? would really appreciate it if you would post some fit pics. Also do they shrink at all in the first wash around the waist. I had a choice between waist size 31 and 32. I decided to go for the 32 as the 31 was too tight around the waist. the second to top button was border line struggle to put on and the top button required me breathing in top button it up. That only left one option to buy 32 waist except that felt marginally loose around the waist not saggy or falling off type of loose waist, just 1cm less would have been perfect. Now the problem is it's sanforized and dont know if i can get the waist to shrink. Any Advice will be very helpful thanks . I own other Edwin denim and on those ones like ed55 and ed 75 i fit waist size 30.
