Loving your Denim

LOVING YOUR DENIM 

;WASH WITH SIMILAR COLOURS.

;IRON INSIDE OUT.

;USE A DETERGENT WITHOUT BLEACH.

;MAY DRY AND WET BLEED SO BE CAREFUL WITH LIGHT-COLOURED FURNITURE, ACCESSORIES AND GARMENTS.

;THE DARKER THE GARMENT, THE MORE LIKELY IT IS TO BLEED.

We all have at least one favourite 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.

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.

Jeans which have been pre-washed at the factory will usually not shrink noticeably. What may happen is that seams contract a little bit but you can stretch them out carefully when the garment is wet to counteract this - this mostly concerns the inseam, once you start wearing them around after the wash they will stretch back to your body shape as before. Jeans which have not been pre-washed may shrink up to 2 cm when you wash them for the first time, usually a little bit of extra length is added to the inseam to compensate, so that you'll have normal inseam after you wash the garment for the first time. 

LTB Jeans were built to last but they will fade over time, allowing you to create a piece of personal art. Some garments are more sensitive to wear & tear than others due to the nature of the fabric.

LOVE your LTB's
