So here’s our advice on how to

care for your denim in the best



There should be a wash care label, but that has limited space, so here’s some more info, so we wanted to expand.
Firstly, don’t wash them, not if you can help it. The less you wash them, the less the fabric gets thrown around and rubbed against its self. The threads don’t get worn down and all of those tiny micro particles stay where you want them too, on your jeans.


In fact…FIRSTLY, try not to blow them out. When you get home from work, put on your slouches, sitting cross-legged, on your knees, or anything which means you’re stretching the knees out will ruin the shape. So when you can, avoid it. This is the same for any trousers or tight skirts. Indoor clothes, for indoor lounging.

Then don’t wash them that much.
When you do, depending on how dirty they are, turn them inside out and do on a 30 degree quick wash. This will basically give them a quick rinse and tighten them back up.  Keeping them inside out helps to keep the colour in so less fading, and less likely to ruin of other things in the wash too. It will also help avoid creases showing on your jeans, or the dreaded crease fade you can get on true indigo cotton jeans. Our jeans very rarely have this issue, but this is the best way to avoid it all around.


Please please please! Don’t put jeans in the tumble drier. Our wearing and use of jeans has changed dramatically over the years, they are far more a fashion item than the hard wearing work wear they started life out as.  Tumble driers kill your clothes. If you can, use it for things like towels, hoodies, socks, gym kit. Basically keep your really nice stuff out of the tumble drier. Air drying is far better and will help the longevitiy of our garments.

Once your jeans are washed, pull them flat, so the creases in the leags are smoothed out. Then lay them flat and either hang to dry on the washing line or on a radiator, clothes horse whatever, but flat, smoothed out to remove creases and not in the tumble drier.
Lastly, put your high waist jeans back on and think, ‘Oh jeeze these are tight!’, then go out and have fun.
