    I have a pretty good cheater's raw denim method, but it still takes some time, like 3-6 months to get them started and then a year for them to really come into their own. I'm working on abbreviating the fading on a pair of Eternall 811's right now, experiment.

    Hiking, biking, and general "hard" activity. They will get really dirty, but my friend got amazing fades/wear on some shitty H&M jeans just from sliding around some hills and backpacking and stuff. This way it'll still conform to your high stress areas instead of artificially trying to pinpoint stress with sandpaper. Still may be more work than you're looking for but that's the best I can think up of.

    you gotta get a hand towel wet, wring it out, and then sit down, bend your legs to get wrinkles in your jeans, and then go at all the wrinkles, the sides of your knees, the knees and tops of your thighs, the fly, etc, with the wet towel, like you are polishing shoes or something. Eventually the creases will lighten up, they'll still be blue, but they get to that point where you wash them and the color falls out of the high wear areas. It's definitely for people with way too much time and nowhere to go.

    Watch la guerre est déclarée if you wanna see people that think it's not because your child is dying that you can't wear an APC varsity and other hype stuff. Actually a decent movie but they thank Lionel from le Baron at the end...
