I just started a pair of RRDS yesterday. I plan to wear them a week or so, until they are a comfortable fit, then wash them. I am doing that so I don't get much distressing and they stay a dressier pair of jeans. As far as the look once they've been washed once, think of the dry Bootcut Ola in its dry state. Also, if you are a fan of the PDC LTD fit (which it sounds like you are) look around for them in the "Miles" wash, which I've seen at Barneys and on Revolve, it is very dark, almost black, and looks to be sort of a resin wash. If they fit you right, and you don't mind the current quality of PDC (not the best), they can be found on sale. Earnest Sewn are also nice, if they fit you.
