Hey there. I've found a nice second hand denim shirt from Nudie online, which I'm about to buy for a nice price. Only problem is that the seller washed this raw denim beauty once - which was absolutely one time too many!
I cant leave it alone tho .. Need to own this. My question is; can I "save" it somehow, and make the white shadows look better? I have thought about 2 possibilities .. Either wearing it all the time until it looks worn all over. Or .. Would it somehow be possible to soak it, and let the other denim bleed upon the white shadows? Thanks already!! Pictures:

What a great forum this is. Seems like everytime someone is asking a question which seems a little stupid - everybody else comes in, trolls them and spits them in their face. Nice one!

if you fail to observe forum culture and start new threads for your question, rather than post questions in the ask a question thread, you'll get a bunch of replys making fun of you i dont see how this is hard to understand

In that case, I guess the polite thing would have been to tell me that in the first place?

True, but you made the first mistake by not using your eyes and read. It's impossible to overlook it, unless you really want too.

putting other jeans hoping the indigo bleeds on it won't really work. you could dye it with some dye if you really want to.

What he's trying to say is it's not safeable.

Probably the only thing left to be done with that shirt is to wash it about 20 more times so it is consistently light in color. Or, overdye it black or another darker color.
