Yes, but you can rarely fade dark denim to that point unless you buy some very rare pair from Japan or something like that. I was just curious how Luxire fading looked because I want light denim but I won't order unless I see some photos.The first photo you have posted is of jeans that were originally dyed dark blue and then garment washed / stonewashed to fade them in the factory, much like most Levis or other jeans sold in mainstream outlets. That kind of washing is usually the province of large manufacturers only, although Luxire is able to do some pre-washing. The second photo you have posted looks like actual wear of a pair of darker jeans due to long term use (it is possible that there was some factory fading done, but we would need a closer photo to see). The Luxire photo is of jeans that are uniformly dyed a light colour, which will of course look subtly but unmistakeably different from a dark garment that has faded. What you refer to as the difference in "the edges" is the visual variation that arises from fading due to wear and tear, which is mimicked by the garment washing process.
Many people on this and other forums would blanch at the idea of buying pre-faded jeans and prefer the look that comes with natural fading that reflects your body shape and use. But each to their own and machine-faded jeans like those in the first photo have their own appeal (see "norm-core")
Nice fades. However, I'm not sure I agree: you'd be surprised what can be achieved by putting some fine japanese jeans in the normal washing machine cycle after every wear or two just like you would for your underwear and tshirts for a year. It looks a lot like the first photo.

Thank you! those look great. These are all Luxire right?
Yep, they are all Luxire cheapest option - Luxire Signature Denim 12oz raw indigo and then faded to my spec.Thank you! those look great. These are all Luxire right?
Thank you, I'll bite the bullet and report soon (hopefully)Yep, they are all Luxire cheapest option - Luxire Signature Denim 12oz raw indigo and then faded to my spec.
I also got cheap Off White Bull Denim, but you can see internal pocket structure. But probably because they are tighter on me than in Luxire example picture.
Yeah I received mine and looks great although cant comment on how it ages. Don’t know wjere you can get 15 oz denim for 90€. And on top of that it’s custom.I absolutely recommend Luxire denim. Price/quality is great. Measurements can be used same as for trousers.
Only their raw salvage does not fade much. I think they pre-wash all denims.
Well fuck me, you learn something new every day. You are correct that "reverse" is indeed what I was going for. I've never seen "inverted"/"kissing" pleats before but I guess I am now the proud owner of a piece of early 90s nostalgia.^Those are inverted pleats. They were pretty popular in the late 80s/early 90s. I'd wear pants like that. PS calls them "kissing pleats.":
