i have to take my favorite pair of jeans (apc petit standards) to the denim doctor tomorrow before the crotch blows out. i’m hoping i can get two more good years out of them before they’re officially retired. they’ve never been washed, so i gave them their first bath today. if you’re worried about washing your raw denim for the first time, don’t be. it’s really easy. here’s a quick step-by-step: 1) fill your bathtub with lukewarm water 2) pour a little bit of woolite dark in the tub 3) submerge jeans and gently rub off dirt 4) let them sit for 20-30 minutes 5) rinse out soap 6) hang to dry. as you can see riley was extremely curious about the process.
