I usually don't subscribe to the "wait forever before you wash" camp--even with Nudies' (selvage) jeans, for example, I think washing them like you would a pair of Flatheads yields great results--but APCs are my one big exception to the rule. After the first wash they look great, the color is awesome, but they start to lose contrast after the second wash IME. The color is also really nice when they've been heavily beaten but remain unwashed, though YMMV as I actually really like the color of APCs when they're raw. Anyway, Brutus' APCs look great, I like the subtle fade.
