I've always been a fan of waxed denim, but i have in the past without fail managed to do the fatal mistake one ought to never do with waxed denim...tumble dry! The heat from the dryer basically strips the wax off the denim. Which leave them looking like ordinary jeans with a slight fade to their once glossy finish. I had an indigo pair that i nuked myself, then i learnt from my mistake, and had a grey pair that my cleaning lady diligently nuked in an attempt to do my laundry, so now i'm buying my 3rd pair, see pic attached. A friend of mine from Canada is getting this pair for me when she comes back to Cape Town next week, woot woot. Now this time i shall guard these with my good nut.
