Caring for your jeans

How you want your jeans to age is up to you, but we recommend not washing your jeans for the first six months, if ever, as you wear in your own creases and fade pattern. To keep them fresh and kill any bacteria, just put them in the freezer for a day.

Then, cold wash in water with a specialist, denim detergent to reveal a beautiful, aged look, or dry clean to keep them looking box fresh and preserve the strong, rich, indigo colour.

If you really want a distressed look, you could always emulate John Wayne*, who would buy new jeans before starting a new film, then tie them with a rope and throw them in a river for a few weeks to soften and fade them.

* We don't suggest emulating John Wayne's politics, mind you
