Jesus, I have never seen anyone agonize over a purchase like this. Seriously dude, its a pair of jeans.
*Wash when dirty. I don't care what people say. Yes, you can get great fades if you wash frequently.
*Buy if you like. If you don't then don't. If you spend 48+ hrs. thinking about it move on. You are not marrying them. You will wear for a year and move on.
*This is not a high-end pair. Yes, I know they come out of a Japanese factory but they are not high-end denim. They are very nice denim but by know means even close to the best available so perhaps you should put things into perspective. Maybe you should use this pair to find out what you like and don't like about the fit, the way the denim wears, etc. so when you decide to move up you are comfortable spending real money on a pair of Japanese selvage.
*You don't iron denim. There are some cases in which it is advised, for example, after you wash a pair and the selvage lines wrinkles up the leg and you want to smooth them out. In this case you turn inside out, turn your iron on to the hot setting, spray the selvage lines up and down the leg with water, SINGE (but this is a good thing), and that's it. It is not advised to iron creasing already set in jeans. If you don't understand why you need to learn.
*Based on last rule, move on or they will work to your build after a few months of wear.
Edit: I am not being mean. Just trying to help out!
