Anderson Cooper takes extreme measures to ensure his jeans look pristine.
While speaking to fashion consultant Stacy London on Anderson Live Dec. 6, the 45-year-old TV host admitted his wardrobe doesn't have much variety. "In my real life, I wear a T-shirt, gray or white, and the same pair of jeans," Cooper said. "Literally, the same pair of jeans every day."
He added, "They have these jeans you don't have to wash now — or so they say. It's true!"
London, 43, seemed skeptical. "I went to this store APC which has really nice stuff," Cooper explained. "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."
The What Not to Wear co-host argued that "six months is probably a little long" between washes, but to maintain "the integrity of your denim, you should wash it in cold water — no soap — and air dry it."
Cooper admitted he's washed his 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," he continued. "Isn't that how you are supposed to do it?"
When London advised him not to use soap, Cooper seemed confused. "That's not really washing them off, so why even bother?"
