“They have these jeans you don’t have to wash now — or so they say. It’s true! … I went to this store APC which has really nice stuff. And you buy these things and the person said to me, ‘Don’t wash them for a long time.’ They mean like six months, I think … [I've washed my jeans] maybe twice in six months …The times I’ve done it, I’ve worn them and walked into my shower with them and put some soap on them and then air dried them … Isn’t that how you are supposed to do it?”
