Hey /fa/, anyone got any experience with the Uniqlo raw selvedge that's on their US site at the moment? Particularly interested in the Slim Straight.
Also uniqlo general i guess
don't listen to the guy who said they aren't that slim - to use a common touch point from the knee up they're about as slim as levi's 511s and from the knee down are a little bit wider. they bleed indigo like a motherfucker, worse than any pair of jeans i have ever had before (even after soaking). other than that, they're comfortable and decent for fifty bucks or whatever.
i don't think there's much you can do other than wear black shoes and only sit on dark couches. oh, and wash them when they start to smell, don't do that ridiculous 6-months shit, especially if you've sized down for fades.
How much do Uniqlo Oxfords shrink? I have one but multiple people have told me it is loose, but I feel that if I jumped down to an XS I'd die/it'd shrink overtime or something

i'm not saying wash them because of the smell, i'm saying wash them so you don't get crotch blowouts, dude. you can seal them, freeze them, and drop them into the challenger depth, but that won't get rid of little particles of shit that cause abrasions and blowouts.
i mean, either that or soak them but either way you'll need to actually get them clean.
surely if i soak them for like 2 hours in cold water it should remove most of the excess indigo?
>ive worn mine for 1.5 years without washing, and there's no smell or anything
Have you ever walked into someone elses bedroom and it has an extremely strong horible smell that they cant smell because they have desensitised to it?
Theres so much misinformation going around about uniqlo denim. I picked them up on an impulse while in New York and assume theyre raw because of how much they bleed, but do they need a presoak of sorts? No one seems sure if they sanforized or not.
I have a large ass/thighs and was very surprised to find that these fit after being sized up one. The waist isnt super loose and the fit is honestly perfect for me. Might be a little loose if you have a smaller frame though
