Because our dungarees are made of premium, raw, selvage denim, they will feel stiff and snug in the beginning. That said, it's a good idea to break your dungarees in before washing so they conform to your unique shape. To keep your dungarees beautiful and strong, we recommend you wash when necessary. To keep any odors at bay between washing, we recommend freezing your dungarees for a few hours. Wear pattern development is improved the longer you go between washes, but too much grime on the surface can accelerate tears and camouflage the fades on your beloved dungarees.
Please be mindful that you may literally leave a mark while wearing your dungarees the first few times. As your dungarees break in the color transfer will disappear.
