I hate to say it but this would only happen in a man’s world. Can you imagine not washing your jeans for six months? I just couldn’t do it. However, denim experts for years have said that the best way to break in a new pair of jeans is by not washing it for the first six months of ownership. J.Crew decided to put this theory to a tried and true test! It’s definitely worth checking out. It seems the tricks to this little test also involved spraying Febreeze on the bits that started to reek over time, spill a cup of coffee on them to get that nice roasted bean aroma and wearing them in the bathtub doesn’t count as washing them but will break them in faster (and perhaps also help with the smell).
