I bought some jeans on tuesday from topman and I washed them this weekend on a 30c wash and the colour has just all faded? Can they be returned after the wash?!

think most jeans are covered as they normally say on labels to expect fading unless it was really bad and patchy can't see them refunding

Mind wash your denims inside out - that helps keep colour for a bit longer

Definitely try getting them changed OP

buy primark jeans for £2 or £3 then you wont care if they fade (none of mine have faded)

I'd take them back, of course youre entitled to a refund, you answered your own question. They're not fit for purpose!

All jeans fade a little on their first wash.

Depends on how much they faded surely? A little bit, you'll have to live with it, if it's that bad that as you say they're ruined, then you can return them.

You must expect some fading, but if you can show in store against a new pair that it's significant I cant see how they can refuse.

you know you shouldn't wash your jeans as much as you wash your tops?
