Instead of calling her today i said, " Fuck it" and just went home. I am going to take all of your guys' advice and just stop talking to her and chill with the friends for awhile. Its not like she is going anywhere anyways. If i change my mind i can always catch up with her. So. instead of this depressing rant lets talk about something else:
Raw Denim. Essentially, raw denim is just denim that has never been washed before. Meaning, it retains all the indigo from when it was first dyed and the company does not even wash them. When you wear them, you are supposed to wear them for a good amount of time before you actually wash them so that the fades are more pronounced. Some people who wear them never wash their pants. The benefits you ask? Lets name a few off.
1. They fit to how you are specifically. When you first buy them they are usually tighter than what they will end up to be (denim stretches). So when you keep wearing them, they will stretch in places that need to stretch and in other places they won't.
2. You don't have to worry about doing laundry. The longer you keep your pants from being washed or soaked, the more indigo it will retain except for where the creases are. When you do wash them, the creases will be a much lighter color then the rest of the pants.
3. Durable. They are pants that are made to be worn for several months without wash. They are pretty much bulletproof until they touch water so i guess you don't have to worry about them tearing.
1. Price. It is pretty much, you pay for what you get. I used to have a pair of APCs that were around 170 dollars and they are my favorite pair of pants. Unfortunately, now that i have had to retire those pants, i bought from a company known as the Unbranded Brand which was only around 80 dollars for retail. The difference in denim quality is such a big difference. I actually hate the quality on these pants but the fit is ok and i didn't have enough money for another pair of APCs at the time so i guess this will have to suffice.
2. Smell. Yes, months or even years of wash can be a bit much for the nose. But honestly, I have never heard of any complaints of smell. Some people like to put their jeans in the freezer to kill the smell while others just cave into a wash. You could always spray it with some sort of spray but that stench will always come back in time.
3. Stains. Since the denim is filled with indigo, the first time it touches water it will stain what it is touching. So i do not recommend wearing white shoes and raw denim for a rainy day or even sitting on a white leather couch.
Here are my old pair of APCs. A year and a half. 1 soak, 1 warm wash, 1 cold wash.
