Matt D'Avella

Hi my name's Matt D'Avella. I'm a minimalist, filmmaker & I made the documentary Minimalism.

Most of my days are spent making films so I don't have a ton of time to check email. You can send me a message at the email address below if you'd like. While I can't respond to all of them, I read as many as I can, and it truly means a lot to have your support.

If you like my videos you might like my courses where I go even deeper into topics like self-development, creativity & filmmaking:

That's all. Thank you!

    If you leave your jeans inside a plastic bag overnight in the freezer, it will stop smelling. Test it and be surprised

    Your poor gf having to deal with the smell when.. Well you know. Is there any correlation between implementing this quite nasty habbit and the amount of bj's? And "it will last longer" is not an argument, so does toilet paper

    Owing more pairs doesn't waste anything since they last longer as your wearing less often. 3 Pairs vs 1 Pair same thing. But Cleaning them less often is smart and bringing up the maybe they dont need cleaned as much as people are use too is a good point. Think about if they are really dirty before washing

    Those crotch holes are actually repairable. There might be a place in your area that will do it, but there are also websites you can mail your pants to and have it done. Then you'll have two pair. Nothing says luxury like two pair.

    I wash my jeans after 3rd or 4th use as long as it looks clean. When it gets some dirt, have to wash it of course. But I don't wear the same jeans daily, I alternate them.

    Jeans only have to be washed when it stinks or when it's really dirty.

    I have worn out many jeans in my childhood, when I did only wear jeans as my pants. The reason was that I bicycled everywhere. All the jeans broke next to the seam near crotch area. Jeans are not for cycling. Nowadays, I have padded cycling pants that I wash by hand every time after ride.

    Just like a pillow, when you don't wash something that touches your skin for long periods of time, the item will literally become heavier over time. All the dust mites, hair, dead skin cells, dirt, grease, and who knows what, all combine to add weight. So if you want heavy pants, then by all means, don't wash them!

    I didn't wash my jeans regularly. Tho I wash them after a week since I sit it in public transportation and in fastfood chains. If I have my own car and wouldn't sit a lot in public, then maybe I wouldn't wash my jeans every 2 weeks but once in a month too. Tho I stopped wearing jeans because I gave all of mine away since they're too heavy in the washer and lighter cloth for pants is more comfy for me now.

    I expected some scientific studies on how many bacteria are on the pants if you wash them compared to if you don't do it and I got disappointed 😂 So actually the reason is: don't wash your jeans unless you don't feel to because it's good for the environment and because Levi's CEO recommends not to do it

    I love everything that Matt does, and at the end of the day I approve of the message behind this video. However , as someone who is a huge Tim Dessaint fan, this is VERY much in the minimalist perspective and very much not in a fashion forward sense. Just to clarify, I have one pair jeans, and it’s the dark navy Levi’s, which are beautiful and I love them. I also have never washed them, they’re perfectly hemmed to my fit. However I have 3,4 pairs of DIFFERENT pant categories (Jean, trouser, curdoroy etc) and so I’m always in a rotation. Nothing wrong with Matt’s holy jean wearing every single day of the year lmao, but I’m just offering a different perspective haha. Cheers Matt ❤️❤️❤️
