What's the best way of soaking raw indigo?
Fades are starting to come through nicely.

Got a pair of Kuro's and want as little shrinkage as possible as they fit a little snug as it is.

Right, very daft question. I took a pair of LVC jeans to a local tailor to get tapered today. Forgot to tell him I want the selvedge line to stay the same/untouched, what are the chances he'll mess it up? I know no one's a psychic and won't know what he's going to do, but I don't know whether when you taper jeans you alter the outer seam as well as the inner. If it's just the inner then it's fine obviously.

Basically if you didn't tell him you wanted to keep the selvedge and he is tapering, i'd be willing to bet the selvedge will be changed (usually made wider)

Urgh, cheers mate. They won't be ready til Monday so I'll have to go in again tomorrow and tell him. I just don't want to ask him to keep the selvedge the same and for him to go "yeah I know, I'm not an idiot", think I'd be too embarrassed to ever pick them up.
