How To Care For Your Balmain Jeans
Premium craftsmanship goes into the production of Balmain jeans, so each pair needs to be cared for in its own unique way. Inside the jeans, read the care label for instructions on how to properly care for your specific pair. Some pairs need to be hand washed, dry-cleaned, or machine washed — so in order to prevent your jeans from being damaged, make sure to check the label first before proceeding.
- How often should I wash my Balmain jeans?
We recommend washing your jeans every 5-10 wears. Wearing them a few times before washing helps preserve the dye in the fabric and will be a comfier fit as you wear in the elastic that is embedded in the denim fibers.
- Will my Balmain jeans shrink after I wash them?
Washing your jeans on a high heat setting and drying them in a hot dryer will increase the chances of them shrinking. To avoid shrinkage, we recommend machine washing your jeans on a cold setting and laying them flat to air dry. Drying them in the machine in any temperature will slightly shrink denim back to its store-purchased fit.
- Will the dye in my Balmain jeans fade over time?
The higher the heat setting, the more dye will fade away from the jeans. If you’d like to preserve the dye saturation, wash your jeans on a colder setting and let them air dry, or wash your jeans less between wears. When you first purchase your jeans, be careful around light fabrics for the first several times you wear them because the dye may transfer.
