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.
Mine is a Whirlpool. It's pretty high end and less than a year old (thank you, Sears going out of business sale).  Nonetheless, temperature settings are Hot, Medium Hot, Medium, Medium Cold, and Cold, and spin settings are Fast, Medium Fast, Medium, Medium Slow, and Slow. I think Americans just don't want/expect that many choices.

What would be the best way to address this? Noticed that the stitching has come loose near the waistband and since the end of the thread is quite short, I'm not sure what to do.

Many thanks!

  I think you should wear those Jeans and never think about that tiny thread ever again. That is a small fray and nothing will come of it.

Maybe so. Maybe not

Hmmm okay. Maybe the photo isn't clear enough, but it's not a fray, rather the thread has been cut/is broken. I'm concerned that leaving it may cause the stitch to unravel (i.e. pulling the stitch in a certain direction will cause initiate the unravelling). I'll see what I can do to mitigate this...

That isn’t anything to worry about. I suspect it is only a loose end and even if it is a broken thread then the integral strength of the stitch will mean deterioration won’t happen. Remember, these jeans are over-engineered.

If you really need to then bind it to the rest of the stitching with thread and needle but without putting your stitches through the denim. It won’t be necessary though.

Hmm, sorry about that cj.  Burn it with a hot match or lighter and nub down with your finger.  That'll will melt the polycore and stick it together.  Go to 2:03 here and see what I mean:

Many thanks for your input @Matty123 @neph93 @Giles. These things happen and are generally fixable (if necessary!). I suspect that the location of this loose thread won't really be of concern—it's just that I've had a cuff on a pair of jeans "unzip" after getting caught on something so thought it'd be best to see if I needed to do anything. Best to ask early than to assume! Thanks again :)

Heavyweight broken twill from IH would lead me to the poorhouse. A jacket made from it—the potential softness....

I feel hot.

So are we going to see more stretch denim coming or will it just be a ignition exclusive?
