    The ones I got are a really dark green non-suede with a brown base. Subtle green-ness. @thatoneguy has mentioned that you can get them custom made for cheaper than retail, like $400 cheaper or something, so I assume you can choose your leathers on that

    In that case I'm glad I sized down to a 33.

    I ordered the "one wash" which I imagine will shrink the jeans but I'm considering changing that to "no wash". But I'm not sure which option is best. Did you get wash or no?

    With a wash it will shrink a bit but I read on the FAQ page someone responding that it stretches back.

    Is there a benefit to the wash? Or no wash is better for break in?

    I'm tempted to pick up a pair of Yang Li drawstring trousers (they are like expensive versions of Gi pants, I think).

    Thoughts? Anyone try them on?

    It is always better to soak or hand wash in a tub. Throwing jeans in a washer takes out too much of the starch, and often puts heavy creases in the denim. An initial soak is nice if you want to soften them up a little, and get the texture of the denim to pop. I usually just wear them straight out of the box, though.

    I've never washed raw denim when new, but I like getting really defined fades. If you're not bothered with high contrast fading it probably doesn't matter so much, the loss of starch will just make them more comfortable a bit more quickly.

    Washing raw denim is perfectly fine, I know the internet bangs on about not doing it, going as long as you can with no washes, or rolling around in the sea with them on but you really dont have to worry about that. Stick them straight in the washing machine if you want.

    I wore my first pair heavily for two-three years and never got the iconic fades seen on the Interwebs; always wondered if it was because I washed them several months in.

    (btw, what is the difference between 'defined' and 'high contrast'? Both sound good!)
