Not too long ago we got a fresh shipment of Left Hand Twill WeirdGuys from Naked & Famous, so it felt like a good opportunity to show how my Left Hand Twills have faded over time.
I’ve been wearing these jeans for a little over two years. They were part of the very first deliveries we got when we were opening The Class Room, and in the weeks and days leading up to our grand opening, long days and nights getting the store ready were spent in these jeans breaking them in.
To me, that’s the really cool thing about raw denim - each pair has a unique story. The fades, the stains, the rips, the weird things you hear people do when trying breaking them in…all of it comes together for an interesting story. Over time, each pair of raw denim becomes as unique as the person wearing them.
My Left Hand Twills have gone through 4 tub soaks with Woolite Dark, but the last soak was probably last summer. Luckily, my jeans never got to a point of an unbearable stench, so an actual machine wash hasn’t been necessary (yet). There were times where I did notice them getting a little funky, but simply hanging them in a well ventilated space to let them air out has been enough. Every now and then I may use Febreeze. I did try throwing them in the freezer a couple of times, but afterwards the jeans had a weird freezer burn smell to me, so I no longer subscribe to the freezer method as a means to de-stench my denim.
If you have any questions about my jeans or denim care in general, feel free to shoot us a message, or come by the shop to chop it up in person.
