I've washed a pair of raw APC's that I have too early, and after washing the colour has become very "normal looking". The only sign of wear is around the back pockets which looks good, but the rest of it is less than what was hoped for. If I keep wearing them often, will I be able to get the natural wearing back even though its been washed before?

You'll definitely get additional wear marks if you wear them a lot and don't wash them for a while; pre-washed denim also will eventually get wear marks, they are just not as pronounced as what you get with raw denim--so yours might be more the equivalent contrasting you would get if you were working with one wash denim

These are finally on sale, 60% off! I just bought some, hope I fit them!

Oh, re: my Nudie, the Great Washing.. they had some lovely whiskers showing through, but after washing you could barely see them at all. I was so disappointed I couldn't come back and post.. now they're just dark jeans, and whilst you can see the whiskers if you squint and **** your head to the side a little, I'm mostly just really bummed I've wasted a darn fine pair of raw denim.

At least today I've got me a gorgeous pair of Diesel Raw - and I've wanted Diesel in my collection forever! - for cheaper than a replacement pair of Nudie SK's!

I'll get pics of my SK's if anyone's interested.. haven't taken any yet, still too bummed to look at them, lol.

those diesels look kinda cool especially with the drop pockets, but 126$ is still so expensive...why were they ~300 bucks before(*edit--aloharag does pricing in USD not aussie dollars, right)? my favorite diesel jeans i've ever tried on there were $140-170--unwashed/raw Liv (but i didn't buy them, lol)--i'm excited for you tho! Diesel makes some really great cuts for ladies in good denim. Are there no Diesel stores in Australia?

pity about your Nudie SKs! the whiskers will still come thru (like dentro said) or you can always "cheat" and sandpaper yer jeans.
my nudies are coming along...but i probably won't wash them for 8 months to a year at least after reading how yer's came out. that reads so gross, even for me.

Yep AR are in US dollars, sadly, though $126 isn't bad at all for designer denim ($300+ was ridiculous!). I'd love to find some raw Liv jeans, but haven't so far.

My SK's have shrunk post-wash, too. I haven't really tried them on and stretched them back out yet.. I guess I may as well play around with some sandpaper, nothing to lose!

I've finally found a replacement pair of Slim Kims so that I can start again! I've gone for 26/34 this time - I usually take a 23-24 in jeans but found the 25's were still digging in and leaving deep welts in my hips after a good 6 months of wear!!

These fit tight but perfectly, and being more comfortable I'll wear them more often. I'm doing the first wear today, and am especially making sure the hems sit comfortably under my heel. I have a 33" inseam, and hate the way the 32" SK's float at my ankle bones - I turned down a pair that were $100 in a snap sale last month because they just weren't long enough! These sit just under my heel but look perfect, so I'm just making sure they crease right to sit flat under my foot, rather than having a hard, lumpy, scrunched up hem like my last pair did. Haha, I'm an experienced raw denimer already!

I've also just bought the first pair of Sass & Bide Raw Selvedge jeans, called The Dexy. Can't wait to get them! I've been wanting selvedge forever, but they're so damn hard to find in womens' styles. Here they are, you can click the pic to get to the page.

Are those the Dry Raw Lean Beans, Jess? I have a pair of those too! Mine are coming along nicely, though with that thick denim I thought they'd take an age to start showing whiskers. I should take a pic.. hopefully they'll come out okay, I can see the whiskers and fading alright with my eyes but you never know if a camera will capture that.

As for stretching, all you can do is the squatting down and leaning forward hard whilst wearing them. Mine have stretched all they'll stretch, and did that in the first month of wearing. They still leave railway tracks upon my hips, and the zipper's popped a tooth too because of trying to stretch them too hard!

Actually I got the last of the Skinny Pins recently! They are raw, I keep getting dye on the inside of my shirts haha. But I will try those squats and leaning, should do some good for my tummy too haha.

Haven't bought any new jeans in donks, but yesterday and today have picked up a couple of new Nudie releases and some raw jeans by Good Society. Not that I needed yet another pair of 14" straightleg dry jeans, but they're mid-rise and under $50 on sale, I just couldn't say no!

It's about time I updated with pics of my other dry jeans to show how they're going. Slim Kims #2 are doing really well, I wear them a lot and they're developing nice whiskering. Haven't worn my Tight Long Johns in Dry Comfort for awhile, but they too are looking great. I need to shift a bit of lard right now so they're waiting for me to do that!

I've been wearing the Edun ones as my scuff-around get grubby renovation jeans.. we're reno'ing an old Queenslander house and as they're a size big and slouchy I'm wearing them for it all to see if I can get some interesting wear and perhaps a dirty hue from all the dust and filth that gets on them that I end up shaking out each evening! It's all dry dirt anyway, just the red dust we have out here, and a bit of sawdust too. :p

Haven't worn the cuffed S&B ones at all yet. Not sure how I feel about the cuffing, so might yet hem them. I like how jeans have a lot of fading at the bottom and I wouldn't get that with them cuffed like that.
