Has anyone ever manually distressed their raw jeans? There must be ways to get raw denim to wear in quicker and still look cool/not fake. I have had some ideas. Using super fine sandpaper to gently sand the "honeycombs" at the back of the jeans. or rubbing small amounts of water on the honeycombs to help them fade quicker. I guess I am thinking more of small things that may not be noticeable right away but quicken the natural break in process. I just wanted to see if anyone else had these same (or different) ideas. Maybe this goes against the raw denim "philosophy." I haven't done anything to my jeans yet because I don't want to do anything stupid.
