Try wearing them longer than 5 mins.

Isn't sanforizing seprate from washing? I thought it had to do with packing and stretching threads on the loom or something.

ha.

i even talked to someone who's 2 months into it wearing straight and he says the creases are only starting to set. if that's the case then he's got a long way to go.

2 months isn't long at all. Look at the "post pics of your denim" thread and you'll see how hard even the truly raw high-end stuff has a hard time fading after 4 months*. If you're looking for quick results, either change your profession to stuntman or construction or buy a pair of jeans KNOWN to fade fast (APC, Julian, etc). You're starting off and excited to see your pair come out like everyone else's on here which is fine. Think about these two things: 1) is the end product as much fun as the process and 2) why do most, if not all, stop wearing their project jeans once their nice and worn in? *except if worn by CMF.

Would Nudie be in that last of brands that fade fast? Also, if the case is there are even some other high end brands that take a while to fade, which choose that one when you can go with ones that fader quicker, better?

Why even buy raw jeans if you're looking to distress them anyway? Cut to the chase and buy pre-distressed.

first of all, i don't see why people here are so hostile to those who like pre-distressed denim.

secondly, that's not even my intent. wouldn't YOU want to have jeans that can fade quicker so you can work on as many pairs as others? secondly, i like the idea of creating them yourselves since it fits with your mold.

jeez.

I know what you mean. I just think that a lot of people like the look of the raw denim too. It's cool when they're all broken in and lightened, but they still look good while breaking them in. I wouldn't worry about trying to make them super worn in right away. Go with the fit and comfort first and let the jeans run their natural course. They have a right to live too. CHOOSE LIFE! edit: The 514s are raw, and i don't know if those are creases as much as they are little premeditated scratches or scrapes(is that what rigid scraped means?). They're cheap, so they're not the same quality as the slim jims, so that's probably the reason they feel different.

I'm not being hostile. You want a pair of jeans that will fade overnight regardless of quality. You seem more interested in the end result than the journey of "creating them [yourself] since it fits your mold." Why do people here pay extra for selvage? Why do people pay for Evisu/Dior/Japanese Repo? I'd argue that most people on here are looking to wear a great pair of jeans that THEN will fade into something unique. They're not looking to wear distressed jeans because they'd rather take the time to do it themselves. Time. I'M not too preoccupied with how fast my jeans fade as much as I am how well they fade. Why would I need to wear through 47 different pairs and why would you for that matter? Most people on here only cycle through a small number of pairs and others only a single one. Just wear your jeans. Period.

Well I understand that completely and I'm not looking for fast results. I'm just curious as to how long it usually takes, doesn't mean I'm trying to rush it. I'm working on some jeans right now that I've even said myself I won't wash until AT LEAST 1 year.

It depends completely on how you live in them. If you do construction, you can easily do in four months what an engineer migh not do in three years. Looking at jeans as finished pieces at any point is fairly silly. Stupid marketing shit about living breathing indigo (with nation states and economic sovereignty in 45rpm's S/S 07 line!) aside, they are pretty much constantly changing. Of course, this is true of all clothes (and, indeed, all physical objects, to an extent), but it is particularly apparent with jeans because of the fabric and the dye. Heraclitean pants, if you like. Anyway, whodini's right. Just wear them. If you want crazy fades, I guess it's time you picked up a hobby like trail running or the French Foreign Legion.

wash them when they stink. they take until they no longer will work as clothing... 1 year to 100 years, depending on how you like it.
