    I have a pair of one wash rag and bone rb1's, will they still fade and wear the same way a raw denim does and am i supposed to not wash them? Or is it different because they have been prewashed.

    First off, not all raw denim is the same. It depends on a lot of things such as dyeing, sizing, denim weight, and the list goes on. Some fade and wear faster than others. That said, R&Bs seem to fade a little more slowly than Nudie and the other trendy raw jeans, but they look great. Its more of a look for people who are sick of the overstarched super-whiskered jeans.

    I'd like to emphasize this. The original color, color it fades to, how it fades, where it fades, etc. could not be any more different between by dry jeans.

    I also think the 'super starchy' look is one that you have to work at. The honey combing on all my jeans is very minimal. I think you have to be diligent with your starch can (or maybe just some kind of construction worker) to really get the defined fading.

    There are examples of worn RB's on their website, may give you a good idea of what yours may look like. As far as washing is concerned, I think the general consensus is that you should minimize washing jeans of any type, raw, onewash, distressed, etc...
