My method of raw levis LVC 501 before wearing

I think it is dificult to fade raw LVC 501 like vintage 501 , because LVC fabric is softer than vintage 501.

Because of that ,  I don´t take off the glue (starch) on raw LVC 501 , though I shrink raw LVC before wearing .

My method of raw levis LVC 501 before wearing

1.Soak in water in about 3 to 5 minutes 

f:id:nobujirou:20200818131051j:plain

Raw denim shirnk when it is soaked completely in water.

if raw deinm is soaked in over 5-10 minits , the glue on raw LVC 501 will dissolve.

I think  that it is more dificult to fade raw LVC like vintage 501 without the glue .

So , my LVC jeans are  soaked in about 3 to 5 minutes to shrink .

 

I soak the jeans in a sunny day with little humidity , because it is easy to dry .

I use cold water ( tap water ) without heating .

In japan , best season is fall to beginning of winter .

 

2.Spin-dry in about 3 to 5 minutes

and sit cross-legged to make whiskers for whiskers  and honeycombs.

take it off as possible as with keeping wrinkles .

 

4.Natural drying

 LVC 501 will dry with wrinkles for maiking whiskers and honeycombs , because the glue remains

 

f:id:nobujirou:20200818132826j:plain

dried LVC with wrinkles for whiskers

 

5.keep wrinkles for whiskers and honeycombs

and, wearing long time(about 6months to 2years) without washing.

When taking  LVC off , put on a hanger to keep wrinkles for whiskers and honeycombs.

  

TIPS

Train Tracks

 I think it is dificult to make train tracks on  raw levis LVC , if the glue remain.

There is not enough hardness to make train tracks .

 

But , I think taht train tracks is important feature of selvage denim .

Now , I am testing starching on LVC selvage to be harder . 

f:id:nobujirou:20200818163225j:plain

 laundry glue(starch) only on selvage


I still don't know the result . 

 

Roping

 I think it is not easy to make  roping of raw LVC , because orijinarl hem stitch dosen't make by UNION SPECIAL 43200G .

My LVC jeans remain with orijinal hem .

 

Best way of  roping is hemming by UNION SPECIAL 43200G .

In Japan , there are several shop that can take a hem by UNION SPECIAL 43200G .

I don't know possible shop in other countries . 

 

I hope you understand that this is not established method , but my method and opinon , and I'm not good at english . 

thank you
