Wearing out unwashed denim

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been intrigued by the discussions on wearing unwashed denim and aging them by wearing them constantly. So I picked up a pair of rigid Levi's 517 bootcuts (granted, not APC/PDC/Nudie, but they were $24) about a week and a half ago, and have been wearing them nearly every day. While they have started to get folds and creases in the normal places, they've yet to pick up any real whiskering or fading. Am I doing something wrong? Maybe I'm just not rough enough with them? I don't have a bike/break broncos/play full-contact rugby in them, so it's mostly just walking around, going out, etc. Are there any tricks to making them age faster (without resorting to sanding, which risks really cheesy-looking wear marks)? It's a decent experiment, but I'd rather go back to wearing my PDC 1-years ...

You just have to keep wearing them, and don't wash them for as long as you can stand.  I had a pair of unwashed indigo Calvin's that took a good 3 months of wearing 3-5 days a week for them to obtain some good fading.  Have fun. Aaron
