Here's the answer that everyone should have given you: DON'T WASH YOUR JEANS EVERY WEEK Do I think people who go a year without washing their jeans are insane? Yes, but c'mon, washing your jeans every week is for old people in Florida wearing Union Bay jeans they bought at Bob's Store. Just deal. I've seen $10 dry Rustler's and $30 Levi's STF look very nice when well worn. There's really no middle ground for decent dry denim. It's either cheap (Rustler, Levis, H&M, Gap) or it's not. You get what you pay for. PS. Rock For Light.
