There are so many variables in buying denim, that you probably should go with the ones that simply suit you best.
LVC jeans are something of an orphan range - they haven't had the consistent care put into them by some of the Japanese makers, notably, as Kiya says, Samurai, Warehouse or Sugar Cane. There have been several errors in some recent LVC too - wrong pockets or detailing.
That said, the best LVC are as close as you'll get to vintage jeans. My 50s LVC repros fade exactly the same - as far as I can tell - as my last pair of 50s originals.
All jeans fade in different ways; I like the way Samurai fade, but it's an 'interpretation' of the look of vintage denim, not better or worse, but different. They crock quicker than most LVC (altho LVC jeans vary a lot, they have different spec denim for different years, and then there's produciton variations too). Some Japanese makers, notably Evis, have put it about they they own the original vintage looms and that their denim is better than anyone else's, but that's not really true - LVC is made on original Cone Draper looms, which have been used since the 20s.
Really, just about any of the above-mentioned Japanese jeans, plus the classic LVC models, have the capability of amazing fades.
