    I have been purchasing GAP Jeans for the past 2 years. I just Love them, are there any recommendations for better branded ones. The problem I face is that when I wash them they fade really fast. Which is good. But after 6 months they are just not wearable. Any recommendations? I f I dont wash them they STINK!!!

    I think the fellas in the Streetwear forum might be a better source for this question.

    Surely the more faded the better they are?

    buy better quality jeans and wash them less. try some a.p.c. for a starter. 120 shipped from denimbar if you mention style forum.
