Same here, I haven't gone easy on them although I don't wear them to work on cars/bikes/oily stuff, and I just barely see some fading. I did a soak when I first got them and they're still very stiff even now. I successfully resisted the urge to wash them and instead hung them inside-out for a week or so to rest. I wonder, if you give a dry cleaner a pair of jeans, will they dry clean without doing something stupid like pressing them or washing them? I'd probably write "dry clean only do not press, wash or iron" in a few languages around the inside of the waistband first.
