they say there is a witchdoctor in the remotest cave in the remotest part of zimbabwe, but no-ones ever made it back to say if he has the magic powers or not yet.

Someone I know came back with the problem solved. The witchdoctor cut off his feet.

Are your trainers leather or canvas?

What have you tried so far?

Apparently Nudie are changing the name of the the Regular Ralfs to Regular Alfs, to avoid the threat of court action from Ralph Lauren.

Got a pair of Nudie Slim Jim dry japs, how much are they gonna bleed with white cons? What causes the denim to bleed, just because the 2 materials are rubbing on eachother? (no homo)

Complete noob to this denim game so any info is grateful Smiling

*edit* noob as in with good quality denim, obv wear jeans already Oops

Editz: interstate or american classics in covent garden (?)

marv: the denim has a surplus of indigo dye on it and it just comes off over time. general rule: the cheaper the denim, the more the bleed. nudies will probably bleed quite a bit (although i've never had slim jim jps so i can't say for sure).

Nah they're not ruined.

Warm some vinegar in the microwave and pour it onto the gum (or put it onto a cloth and rub it in), wait a few minutes, and you should be able to pick the rest off with a knife.

You can also rub the gum with an ice cube until it hardens and try and peel it off but the vinegar way is easier.

You might get a tiny bit of indigo loss where the gum was but it shouldn't be too noticeable.

are you deffo sure cap??? I really dont want to be left with obvious marks where the gum was… was planning to take them to a dry cleaners as i hear they have specialist solutions for removing chewing gum.

So angry about this, was just starting to really like these skulls…. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

The vinegar method does work but it may leave slight marks.

Take them to a dry cleaners if you want to be on the safe side.
