Care guide for the Slim Jeans

November 14, 2023

It may have taken you a while to finally find a proper pair of slim jeans. A few care tips will make sure your patience is rewarded for a long time.

You spurred us on to make a proper pair of Slim Jeans that could stay that way for years, and that's what we did.

Unlike those frail jeans with an under-par cut you soon regretted buying (so you told us in the questionnaire), these aren’t only hard-wearing, they're also nicely fitted. Here are a few tips to make sure they stay that way for as long as possible.

What’s in the name?

As the name suggests, slim-fit jeans fit close to the body. No matter what anyone says, they’re much more subject to rubbing and stress than a pair of straight-or-regular-fit trousers. That's exactly why fitted trousers on the market quickly give up the ghost at the knees or around the thighs.

We at Asphalte opted to add 1% biodegradable stretch to our denim for extra resilience. It also makes your jeans more comfortable and hard-wearing. This patented fibre, straight out of the lab of ROICA in Japan, guarantees long-lasting elasticity by allowing the fabric to follow your movement and return to its original shape without sagging or tearing.

NB: This innovative fibre is biodegradable, which means that it doesn't release microplastics when washed.

Super easy care

You won't need a PhD to wash your Slim Jeans. Choose a regular machine wash at 30°C, preferably on a delicate setting with little or no spin-drying, and you're good to go.

Purists may opt to soak them in cold water with a drop of natural soap a handful of times a year, but make sure you air them out properly between each wear. It'll get rid of bacteria and give your jeans a nice fresh feel.

Watch out for the first wash

Your Slim Jeans have been indigo-dyed, so they're likely to bleed a little on the first wash. To avoid staining your light clothes, we recommend washing them with dark pieces the first time round.

Similarly, they may bleed a tad for a week or two. Avoid light-coloured tops and shoes until the dye has set in.


If ironing denim’s your thing, opt for the cotton setting and place a layer of fabric on top of it to protect the denim or avoid making any marks.

Thanks !
