So, how should I treat these? I'm talking about washing them, presoaking them, etc. I'm not throwing them out. It's has no distressing and is pretty much black. It looks sort of like this
but without the weird back pocket zipper.
Unless your jeans are raw and shrink-to-fit, there's no need for a presoak. To wash, I would recommend doing it cold, inside-out, and on delicate cycle to minimize color loss. I would recommend hang drying rather than tumble drying to minimize wear and color loss as well.
If you want higher contrast fades, wash less often. If you want a more even fade, wash more often.
