Wish the cut was slimmer, but I love these to death. I am going to guess the wear time is ~3-4 weeks (or a month). The BEST way to represent the color is to say they are purple. They are brown/indigo weft/warp which in turn makes them purpilish. At a distance they somewhat look like the first picture, but up close they look exactly like they do in the third picture.
A pair of your standard My First Raw Denim. APC NS, tagged 32, sized down 2 when I first got them but more like 1 at this point. 10.5 months of nearly continuous wear. Cold machine wash, inside out, Woolite Dark, hang dry. In the mail now to Denim Therapy to repair the ragged spots. I was hoping to make it to an even year but even with a monkey patch the crotch was getting too shot for reasonably polite wear.
Blown away with how they changed after the wash. Wasn't sure how much more defined the wear on the creases would become but as the before/afters show... they REALLY popped.
Was very hard to color correct these to get them right, but they're still pretty dark- the last few after pics are a little too light vs reality.
Post-wash (different days, rained the night before these which is why the deck is darker):
