I am still a noob here so can someone tell if this is normal. I've had my 5eps for 2.5 months and as reported elsewhere they are very stubborn where fading/wear is concerned. But I noticed that once it started to become noticeable it's almost like I can see more and more fading/wear with each wear. Is it normal for it to start out slow then just take off after a certain point?

Same thing's happening to my RRDS. For weeks nothing to speak of and now if I stick my hand in the pocket and take it out - it looks lighter.

I exaggerate, but you get my point right?

Not for pity but for love...


It's normal. I think it has something to do with the creases setting in? But I might be thinking krooked...

i do believe the indigo is stubborn at first, but eventually gives after a few months. i find that a ton of fading occurs after the first wash, actually.

but different jeans behave... differently--------the dying processes are... different. the number of dips varies. a person's activity varies. climate is a factor.

and here we are.

in some indeterminate space.

holding our crotch rivets, if we got 'em.
