SUPERDENIM SMALL QUESTIONS THREAD (Use instead of making new threads)

Recommended Posts

OK here is a small question for this tiny tiny thread. Anyone know where to pic up W & H or spruce hoodies/clothing online? I have hunted around Edmonton with little to no luck. For a clothing line that is made only one province over from me it is surprisingly scarce.

i want to get a pair of lee 101z limited, but they seem impossible to find. does the gold label on the lees website use the same denim? i know the stitching and patch are different, but i don't mind that.

I saw this, and my question is:

Does hot soaking allow for easier indigo loss, only for Nudies or all denim in general?

I've been wearing my Nudie Slim Jims for about 4 months and they are no where close to what this guy has done in a week. It blows my mind, so my second question is:

Should/is it possible that I can hot soak mine now to help with the loss of indigo?

* soaked them for about 15 mins in HOT water. and when i say hot i mean like, "hot tub" hot. padded with a towel and then hung to dry. overall the jeans got a LITTLE tighter but the inseam didn't strink at all. after the jeans were dry it didn't seem like they lost that much indigo, but after about a week of wearing them, alot started to come off.

^yes, you should soak any raw denim in water, the water opens the denim fibers up and allows the denim to break in better in terms of creases and color.

no, not at all. it'll create contrast in the denim. try it. see how it works if you want 'em lighter.

Thanks for the information guys, I appreciate the help to a noob.

Last question though, (I swear haha), but which one is better, a hot or cold soak and for how long should I soak it?

Also, if I don't soak it what happens when I finally wash it?

read the denim encyclopedia. it's pinned in super denim and has a myriad of information. probably more than you want to know.

i don't think there is one that's "better", they serve different purposes. cold soak is for minimal shrinkage/indigo loss and warm for maximum. nudies are sanforized so they won't shrink much if at all. it's up to you how much indigo loss you want. and the length of the soak is up to you as well according to how you want the denim to turn out. anything more than 3-4 hours is overkill, though.

i doubt they are a week old. it only says that after a hot soak, he was wearing them for a week. not that he's only been wearing them for a week.

Hi all... Just wanted to find out where in Tokyo can I find Pure Blue Japans... Family going Japan without me and as a 'compensation' to me, will ask them to buy a pair of Pbjs xx-005 black... :P any place that sells PBJs close to areas where tourists frequent? in the itinary, they will be visiting Asakusa Kannon Temple, Nakamise Shopping Street, 100 Yen shop and Ueno Flea Market... How about Uniqlo? Thanks in advance!!!

Are there any other Rakuten shops other than Bears (they still don't ship outside of Japan, right?) that carry PBJs xx-005 and ship internationally?

when did it go out? usually you only really get info when it's left, then when your country receives it. By that time, i usually have em in my hands. USPS is still the best

Yeah, kicking myself for not getting a pair from uniqlo when I was in China. Might have to post a WTB in supermarket. What is the price on them?

I read in the Evisu thread that No. 1 special denim and No. 2 are basically of the same grade, except that No.1 is unsanforized and No. 2 is sanforized... Is this true? It doesn't really make sense to me, because the mark up is way to high for that...

Some gaps have a product Gap Gough. I don't know if they're in stores but there used to be plenty of people selling them in the market here and on styleforum because the fit wasn't very flattering. I think hypebeasters started to get into them too so you might want to check their market too. They retailed at about $80 but on sale were like $40 and under at certain places.
