what a load of hogwash. only a denim purist would state that jeans should never be washed. if you ask any of the founders of companies like 3sixteen, Rogue Territory or whoever they'll state that you should wash your jeans like any other pair, unless they're unsanforized which is another story altogether. Crotch blowouts and wear/tear happen with denim when they're not washed. Starch, dirt and filth are extremely abrasive and is what causes holes. I have about 15 pairs of raw denim and have soaked/washed virtually all of them.
Don't you know that back in the 1890s NOBODY ever washed their pants?
It was a filthy place
If I ever take up panhandling or working in a coal mine i'll let you know. I guess I have a hang up about festering in my own filth so that I can achieve epic fades
