Shazor, one wash denim...

To the denim experts: should I wait to wash these bad boys or is it pointless since a one wash will not yield the wear and tear look associated with "true" dry denim?

I looked up the shazor wash and I'm not totally convinced it is a genuine one-wash. It just looks like dark denim made to look "one-wash" in the process. But if it was one-wash, you wear it for good couple of months before washing. You could just take a stab at wearing these things for a week or two. If you see any honeycombs forming, maybe some wear on the back pockets, then you'll know. But I doubt that's the case with these things.

all denim that is dyed with indigo will fade, raw, one wash, or pre washed. if the color is dark, all you should have to do is wear the shit out of them and they will fade for you.

wash when the smell makes you want to throw up.
