Default Never wash your jeans...

That's what the experts say. "These jeans are maybe a year old and have yet to see a washing machine." Levi Strauss CEO Chip Bergh said of the pair he wore during a chat onstage.

He recommended spot cleaning jeans with a sponge or toothbrush and a bit of detergent, then air drying. He says you should very seldom machine wash denim.

Designer Tommy Hilfiger has made similar comments. And CNN's Anderson Cooper told style expert Stacy London two years ago that he washes his jeans very rarely.

Don't machine wash your jeans, says Levi's CEO - CNN.com

We should all get used to stinking?

They should come work in the factory I work in. They last maybe two days before washing. That's only if I don't leave the office for two days.

These "experts" need to venture out into the real world once in a while.

I wear baggy carpenters jeans almost everyday. I wash them after each wear because it's what civilized people do.

If some metro-sexual or faggot wants to spend hours spot cleaning his tight fitting designer jeans...that's his bidness. I ain't got time fo dat. I have dog poop to scoop.

The "experts" who say don't wash them probably are never exposed to anything but 72* AC 24 hours a day and not have them on for more than 2 hours at a time.

Agreed. Besides, doesn't washing them make them softer? I love how soft, faded jeans look and feel.

Talk about the elites being out of touch with the general population that make up the majority of their customers.


This might be their Dixie Chicks moment.

This little Wrangler wouldn't be a bit surprised if the Levi's-wearin' population didn't move over to Carhardts.

I don't like wearing jeans until they've been washed several times. Dark blue jeans are pretty stiff and irritating to the skin, and washing softens them to be comfortable. Plus, I think that wearing them and then washing them several times make them adjust to your body contours.

You're supposed to put them in the freezer to kill the stink.

I can not wear a pair of jeans more than once without washing them. It's probably all mental, but it just seems icky to me.

I'll "gozar" my jeans for a few days, and then hang out with these "experts" for a few minutes. That will change that silly little notion that they have.

Ill give em up to 12 hours of wear time...after that point, they are probably encased in a grease film, possibly some food, have been heavily farted in, and are not fit for anyting more than a good wash...

MAybe one day Ill wear a pair for a few days, and mail them to Tommy Hilfagger and let him experience the reality that is a real job...

I mean, it was 97 yesterday, with a 114* heat index...you do not even want to know the level of swamp ass I had going on..

.....except the Dixie Chicks were right (albeit unpopular). Think ISIS would be prancing around Iraq right now, beheading people, if we hadn't deposed Saddam? I'm betting not.

In contrast, anyone that actually uses blue jeans to work in, gets them greasy, dirty, sweaty, stained, etc. Every day. The only exceptions would be for people who work in a climate controlled office and don't do anything that might get them dirty. For those folks, they could probably get away with infrequent jean washing.

If your job allows you to wear jeans for a year only getting by with spot washing...you need to consider slacks, or khakis...

Yeah, how much does CEO guy actually do while wearing jeans?
If they were owned by any normal person, they would be pretty ripe at the end of that year.

I think you're right. I have to be really lazy (a drink a lot) for me to wear a pair of jeans for a 2-day weekend. After mowing grass in 97 degree temperature and ding other chores around the hous, my jeans could stand up by themselves. And they stink.
