Care Guide

1. JEANS

We all have at least one favorite pair of jeans that fit perfectly and look great with or without anything else on. The day those jeans decay is a day of grief. Therefore we have some suggestions on how to extend their life.

Wash and iron inside out and wash with similar colors. Use a detergent without bleach, they may dry and wet bleed so be careful with light colored furniture, accessories and garments. The darker the garment, the more likely it is to bleed.

Our most important piece of advice is to wash your jeans as rarely as possible. If you have only worn your jeans for a few hours, you don’t need to throw them in the laundry. When they break, we encourage you to have them repaired, by a professional or by yourself (it’s not that difficult) partly because it gives them a longer life but also because it looks great.

1.A. Unwashed, rinsed and garment dyed

Be careful with dry- and wet-bleed, especially in the beginning. This sort of garment will fade over time. Stay away from light-colored furniture and be careful with your accessories. Part of the charm of this type of garment is that it will obtain a beautiful patina over time. Black jeans will face to a charcoal grey which looks fantastic and is actually not all that easy to create artificially. Wash these jeans rarely and let them tell your story. Especially black ones, you can actually re-dye with a basic color kit available from many department stores, in case you want to restore the black color without buying a new pair. Raw/rinsed denim shrinkage will be minimal – where it occurs, it’s usually mostly noticeable on the inseam which may shrink up to 2 cm. Most of our colored jeans and chinos are garment dyed.

1.B. Piece dyed

This garment generally comes with high color fastness, so you are unlikely to experience significant dry- and wet-bleed. Never hurts to be careful though.

1.C. Dark wash

These may bleed a bit and will continue fading with every wash. However, they will normally not bleed nearly as much as Unwashed/Rinsed/Garment dyed items. But it’s still important to wash with similar colors.

1.D. Light wash

With light washes, it’s quite unlikely that you’ll have major problems with dry-bleeding. You should still wash them with similar colors to be on the safe side, and of course also to prevent them from taking color from other garments.

1.E. Acid wash

Acid/snow washes can be a bit sensitive to light so you should store them in a dark place when you’re not wearing them. It’s possible that they get a slightly creamier color over time, but we try to keep it to a minimum. When exposed to light and air for an extended period of time, an acid bleached garment may get a slightly creamy color, which is why you should let them dry in the shade.

WASH AND IRON INSIDE OUT AND WITH SIMILAR COLORS. USE A DETERGENT WITHOUT BLEACH. MAY DRY AND WET BLEED SO BE CAREFUL WITH LIGHT-COLORED FURNITURE, ACCESSORIES AND GARMENTS. THE DARKER THE GARMENT, THE MORE LIKELY IT IS TO BLEED. DO NOT PULL BELT-LOOPS – THEY ARE INTENDED SOLELY FOR HOLDING BELTS IN PLACE.

2. JEANS-TIGHTS

We know you love your jeans tights. Although they are adorable and elastic, they’re not as durable as a normal pair of jeans, and that’s because we’ve prioritised comfort, elasticity and fit with these styles. Please don’t treat them roughly. Remember that all types of denim last longer if you try not to wash them frequently.

2.A. Rinsed / garment dyed

Be careful with dry- and wet-bleed, especially in the beginning. This sort of garment will fade over time. Stay away from light-colored furniture and be careful with your accessories such as shoes, bags, etc. in light colors. Part of the charm of this type of garment is that it will obtain a beautiful patina over time. Black jeans will face to a charcoal grey which looks fantastic and is actually not all that easy to create artificially. Wash these jeans rarely and let them tell your story. Especially black ones, you can actually re-dye with a basic color kit available from many department stores, in case you want to restore the black color without buying a new pair. Raw/rinsed denim shrinkage will be minimal – where it occurs, it’s usually mostly noticeable on the inseam which may shrink up to 2 cm.

2.B. Dark Wash

These may bleed a bit and will continue fading with every wash. However, they will normally not bleed nearly as much as Unwashed/Rinsed/Garment dyed items. You should still wash these with similar colors. And it’s still possible that dye stuff rubs off on other materials in light colors so be careful.

2.C. Light Wash

With light washes, it’s quite unlikely that you’ll have major problems with dry-bleeding. You should still wash them with similar colors to be on the safe side, and of course also to prevent them from taking color from other garments.

2.D. Acid Wash

Acid/snow washes can be a bit sensitive to light so you should store them in a dark place when you’re not wearing them. It’s possible that they get a slightly creamier color over time, but we try to keep it to a minimum. When exposed to light and air for an extended period of time, an acid bleached garment may get a slightly creamy color, which is why you should let them dry in the shade. These washes are usually based on a dark indigo denim or a garment dyed item which means that they may dry- and wet-bleed. You should wash these pants separately or with similar colors as they may dry- and wet-bleed. The base color will gradually fade over time.

WASH AND IRON INSIDE OUT AND WITH SIMILAR COLORS. WILL DRY- AND WET-BLEED. DO NOT TUMBLE DRY. DO NOT BLEACH. WASH AT LOW TEMPERATURE (30 DEGREES C) AS THE FABRIC IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO OVER-HEATING. IF NECESSARY, STRETCH THE INSEAM CAREFULLY WHEN THE GARMENT IS WET. DO NOT PULL BELT-LOOPS – THEY ARE INTENDED SOLELY FOR HOLDING BELTS IN PLACE.
