Random and probably has been said numerous times before, but worth noting again:
If anyone is choosing to get into the raw denim game with N&F Indigo Selvedge, consider spending a few more bucks for a different pair. These things truly are the most ridiculously hard pair of jeans to fade that I've encountered.
I've got a full 365 days of wear and 2 washes on them. The fading is just as minimal as can be. They haven't even gotten lighter through the washes barely at all. This denim retains its color like nothing else I've seen.
TL;DR: Don't buy N&F Indigo Selvedge jeans if you'd like them to fade a reasonable amount. You'll be spending a few years trying to fade them.
