Student wears unwashed jeans for 15 months " A University of Alberta student has discovered through science that a current fashion trend is safe, but can be a little stinky. Josh Le donned the same pair of skin-tight jeans for 15 months without washing them. The idea was to break in the raw denim so the fabric would hug the contours of his body, leaving distinct wear lines and creases. Curious about the health risks of wearing such a grubby garment, Le asked his textile professor to test the jeans for bacteria before he washed them for the first time. The results showed high counts of five different kinds of bacteria in the denim, but nothing that posed a health hazard." Gross. Not the first time I've heard of the 'Never Wash Your Jeans' method, but still fucking gross. in its own roundabout way, though, it inspires an intriguing thread. Especially among e-nerds. Focus: Where do you lie on the fashion spectrum? Do you have a preferred 'style'? How do you dress on a daily basis? How would you prefer to dress if you had your druthers? Are you a fad whore? Do you not give a shit? What are your thoughts on modern clothing in general? Hipsters, business casual drones, Sweatpants Brigade, UNITE! This is the Clothing Thread. Go.
