Edwin ED-SL Six Month Journey

Every pair of selvedge denim jeans tell a story, your story.

While they all start the same way; new, crisp and clean, these jeans will age with you and your journey.

The beauty of a pair of thick, robust pair of premium unwashed selvedge denim is that you define its character and its persona as it breaks in from months of wear before its first wash. How you move and where you’ve been will be re-told though the creases and fade of your jeans that have become one with you. While they all start exactly the same, each and every pair will become its own unique pair in style and colour.

Here at Stuarts London, we took a pair of our 50th Anniversary Edwin ED-SL Rainbow Selvedge Denim Jeans and wore them in for six months. Below you will see its journey from brand new to worn pre-wash, and post wash.

With everyday wear for 6 months, you can see that the pair of Edwin Jeans wore into a rich blue colour with some signs of wear particularly on the creasing and the knees. By wearing these jeans in for a long period of time before its first wash, you are enabling a rich pattern to form from your actions and movements, giving time for all this creasing will set in. After the wash the pair of jeans will fade slightly to show its true colours and highlighting all the crease edges and fades, creating your very own bespoke pair of jeans like no other that shows off individual personality and narrative. Washing raw unwashed denim will cause a little shrinkage, in this case the length of the jeans shrunk about 5%.

Why not start your own story, with our selection of premium selvedge denim?

How to maintain your Edwin Jeans

Unwashed Edwin Jeans:

This is an unwashed EDWIN selvage product, we recommend that you take the time to rinse your jeans (That means no soap or detergent just plain water) before your start to wear them. Failure to do so could lead to discolouration on to your clothing, skin and light-coloured surfaces.

Before Your First wash:

Before washing your pair of Edwin Denims, we suggest that you try and make your selvage denim unique to yourself. Wear them for as long as possible, usually most selvage lovers would wear them for at least 6 months before giving them their first proper wash.
We know that it can get a bit smelly so here are some tips to keep them fresh. Sticking them in the freezer overnight can help get rid of bacteria that develops overtime, then hang to dry. If you choose this method then make sure you turn inside out in case the colour bleeds in the freezer.
Another way is to let them breath outside in the sun, or use an odour neutraliser spray. The wear in period is a unique partnership between you and your jeans, the characteristics of wear depend upon your regime and lifestyle. If you keep to this, your jeans will be unique to you alone.

Time to wash your Edwin Jeans:

  • It is important to turn them inside out and wash them separately.
  • Try and use NO, or little amount of washing powder, without bleaching agent.
  • Wash on a hand or delicate cycle to be sure that only Dirt and excess dye is removed.
  • After wash, let pants hang to dry correct way out, naturally.
