In a society that’s visually orientated, looking the part is crucial. The reality is people form an opinion of you based on how you look, and it happens faster than you realize. It takes the brain roughly 3 seconds to create a first impression. Meaning, before you even open your mouth to talk, you've already been profiled.
Imagine sitting in an interview, and the interviewee comes walking in with shredded and ill-fitting clothing? Would you give him the job? The last thing you want people to think about you is that you are incapable of putting together a well-planned outfit.

Jean care guide
A well-worn jean is entirely unique to you, shaped to fit your body perfectly. To get the most out of your denim, specific methods must be followed to prolong your favourite jean’s life. Taking care of your jean will reward you with uniquely aged fades and years of durability. We spoke to Chester, head designer at Bogart Man, to get some tips from a professional. This is what he had to say:
How often should you wash your jeans?
Denim is a rigid material, but warm water and strong detergents can change its colour and shape. Levi's CEO believes you should never wash your jeans, although a good rule of thumb is to wash them anywhere between 3-10 wears or when they start to smell.
What’s the correct way to wash your jeans?
To get years out of your jean, the best method is to hand wash them in cold water. And turn them inside out when you wash them. If you want to wash them in a washing machine, try a delicate cycle and wash them with cold water. It's okay to machine wash them, but it's not ideal.
How should you dry your jeans?
The best is to hang them, and air dry them on a washing line. Never tumble dry your pair of jeans with heat, it can shrink, and you will regret it.
What’s the best way to store them?
That's entirely up to you, but I think hanging them neatly over a hanger keeps the creases intact. Denim is a strong material, so I don't believe storage will play much of a role.
Benefits of handwashing your jeans
We live in a world that caters for convenience, and a washing machine might seem like the most comfortable option. Although, washing your jeans as suggested above (every 3-10 wears) and doing it by hand will undoubtedly extend the life of your favourite jean. Or instead, opt to spot clean your jean. When you notice a dirty spot, clean it off with a bit of vinegar. This way, you prevent having to submerge your jean in water, risking their unique character.
We hope the jean style and care tips have made it easier for you. And remember, if you have a slim body shape, opt to go for slim or regular cuts. If you have a muscular body shape, opt to buy regular or relaxed cuts. Lastly, if you have a large waist, a relaxed or loose amount will be your friend. Jeans are super versatile. That's why we love them. Grab your favourite Bogart jean online and expand your collection. Check out our just-arrived page to see what's on the menu.
