First pair of overdyed denim from IH. In the past, I've had no issues with machine washing my overdyed cpo and western. But I didn't want to get the streaks I got with my "fades to grey" denim. Anyone have suggestions or thoughts about how they wash/don't wash their overdyed denim jeans?

Inside out always regardless. Little or no
spin is always a general rule that prevents marbling/creasing/abrasion lines. I also have the habit of thoroughly soaking my jeans in side and out with the shower head. This also inhibits sharp creases from occurring with the resultant abrasion lines.

I think OD’ed denim is fairly robust in this respect but I do this no on every pair of expensive pants I own, for safety’s sake.

Hey guys,

I have the IH 666S 18oz & IH634s 14oz (I don't know if it is 14 or 142 as they seem to have the same leather patch).
But these two denim stretched in the waist and they are a bit too wide now  :'(.

I would like to shrink the waist, with warm or even hot machine wash, but I am afraid to blunder the denims. I have read that warm/hot machine wash can have bad effects on the denim (creases, uneven indigo bleed) and can even destroy the leather patch.

Can you guys share me some of your knowledge?  :) I know the best solution would be to widen my waist but not the easiest one...

If it’s the 634S-142, to my knowledge, the denim is sanforised and one-washed, so most of the shrink is gone. It’s generally not recommended to wash jeans at a temperature higher than 40 degrees Celsius, and, in this case, it’s likely pointless because there is probably little to no significant shrink left in the denim.

My experience with the 21oz. 634S-B is that the waist shrinks back to its original size in a 30 degrees Celsius wash and then stretches back out an inch or so after wearing once. I generally wash my jeans, once every few weeks as needed, inside out at 30 degrees Celsius on the gentle cycle with low or no spin and hang them up to dry.

A regular machine wash (40C) will shrink the jeans back to the size they were when you bought them. If you do it at 800rpm or less, with the jeans inside out, then marbling, streaks etc shouldn’t be a problem. If you want to be sure then soak them with the shower head first.

Both the jeans you mention are fully sanforised so doing a very hot (90C) wash won’t do much more than a 40C but if you still want to give it a go then you should thoroughly oil the patch or even cover it with Vaseline to avoid it getting fried. I wouldn’t recommend it though.

I think you guys outside the us have more elaborate washing machines. Maybe i’m just due to replace my 20 year old model. It pretty much has 2 settings: hot wash/cold wash and large/small load.

I’ve heard that before. I don’t really get why... what brands are normal in the U.S? Mine is not an expensive model but I can set degrees C from 30-95 an rpm in increments of 100 from 400-1600. In addition there is a rich choice of programs.

Older models are pretty basic but I think the newer ones give more choices

From a conservationist/engineering point of view, I love the idea of 20yr old washing machines and wish they were still a thing. The warranty on most mid-range new machines now is five years. If they don’t break down in their sixth year you’re lucky. When they do, the quote for a repair is so much, you might as well buy a new one. Planned obsolescence makes my teeth itch.
