Not washing my dry denim Nudies (found on sale at Holt Renfrew Last Call for $100) for six months. This started a few weeks ago. So far so good. If you spill, spot clean only.
Raw denim, often referred to as “dry” or “selvedge” denim, is untreated and unwashed when it’s crafted into jeans. Unlike pre-washed denim, raw denim allows you to create a personalized wear pattern through natural fading and distressing. Many denim lovers avoid washing raw denim for the first few months because it helps the fabric to conform to their body and develop unique creases and fades. The general rule is to wear it as long as possible before giving it its first wash to get that perfectly shaped-to-your-body look. You are meant to wear them every day in those first few months to really make them your own. This appeals to my frugal girl sensibilities, as this makes for a very low cost per wear. It also appeals to my loathing of doing laundry. Rosie 🙂
