Despite the wealth of knowledge available on many of today’s denim blogs and forums, there are still a lot of misconceptions and misguided advice given on the care of raw denim. Have you ever been told not to wash your premium selvedge denim? Or to put it in the freezer? Or to take it to the ocean and scrub it with sand? Or to wear it in a full bathtub? In this video, The Crosby Press sits down with denim gurus Kiya Babzani (Self Edge founder) and Andrew Chen (Self Edge NY; 3sixteen) to set the story straight on these fallacies, and find out the true methods for premium selvedge care.
