how should i treat my "new" prewash 501s? will they shrink/fade? should i go for a few months without washing or will that be a waste of time? ive had them for a few weeks now and love them, noticed some stretching with wear and the color is a very dark and looks like it will run if i wash/soak so im considering breaking them in for a bit before i do so apologies in advance - i searched for this but only found info on SFTs
