I was browsing through new arrivals this morning, and these dark wash bootcut Loomstate jeans in a 34.5" inseam caught my eye. I love how crisp and polished they look, thanks to the raw denim they're constructed from. As I was reading the product details, I noticed a funny thing: "Loomstate recommends washing your jeans while wearing them in the shower." Huh. I've never seen that before. Does anyone actually do this? I have bad memories of swimming in jeans during a water safety class I had to take during high school. The jeans clung so tightly that it was almost impossible to swim as they became waterlogged and cold. So, I think I'd opt for hand-washing these over wearing them in the shower. But that's just me. :) Cute jeans, though.
