APC jeans never go on discount. places that try to skirt the rules or blatantly violate them tend to not carry APC anymore
get them used or barely used on B&S and ebay. there's tons

you're asking for the impossible -_-
you can't get instantaneous fades that look good and fit well and isn't worn in. you gotta choose mang
you might have common sense but you couldve read a little bit more about the process. contrast occurs when your jeans fold as you move and sit. the parts that are exposed to the environment and get rubbed and touched a lot (
) are going to fade faster than the parts that aren't. bleach is going to be hard to dilute on a specific target simply because it'd be easy to get other parts of the jean wet and then it's going to look like shit
that'st contrast. you can imitate the process by scrunching your jeans in those area and then blasting them with sand or rubbing them with stones or summit, but it's going to look like shit.
you honestly have not searched very much because these are questions that have been asked over and over again. the sufu denim encyclopedia prolly has loads of threads that answer your question.
there are however brands that do a pretty good job distressing their jeans (try RRL, jean shop, your typical japanese denim brands, and fashion brands) and keep looking for a pair that has fades where you want them and are soft. return your raw APCsEdited by indesertum - 9/13/12 at 3:31pm
