Most of my jeans I don't wash because they are Dry Denim. I wear Nudies a lot and have about 3 pair of dry ones. I just washed one for the first time after wearing them for a year. In case your wondering why check out: http://www.nudiejeans.com

Once every week or two. Depends on where they've been and what I've been up to. I generally only own 1 or 2 pairs of jeans at a time.

I like mine better right out of the wash, they fit better..
I do love a good pair of jeans, have to dress up for work, I change right away in them once I get home.

I don't wash anything - our help does. Now, wasn't that easy.

And since we don't have hot water anywhere except in the shower - they are washed in cold water. They don't shrink - but at times I expand a little.

I understand where they're coming from. Don't wash them?

Correct. Not at all. These jeans are made RAW. They have never been in water or touched it. You wear the jeans for a while (6 month ave) then they start fading according to your body lines. They are made from indiigo dyes that fade over time.

Besides bikes, Jeans are my other obsession

I could probably get away with wearing them twice before washing them if I didn't throw them on the ground in a heap and get them all wrinkly after the first time.

But never? That's nasty. I've never heard of anyone (at least no one with access to wash facilities) not washing their pants.

"Hey man, I think I saw a UFO!"
"Naw, that were swamp gas. *points at his pants*"

When they look dirty, which is usually after about 5 days worth of wearing them. Day 2 is when they fit right.

I have a habit of getting filthy working as well as playing. So I wash mine regularly.

Sometimes I'm really glad that I don't understand "fashion".

Okay, I'm pretty much always glad of that.

Do men who wear dirty, smelly jeans have much luck in getting women to sit in their laps?
