Raw denims have been notoriously known to last a very long time, especially with determined hypebeasts trying to achieve their perfect location of stacks, color of fade, amount of whiskers, etc. What I wanted to ask you fellow HB is how long do you guys wear your "perfect" raw denim for until its time to retire that pair and either start over with a new pair or just go back to pre-washed denim. Let me know! 

PS: Bonus points for anyone who knows how long raw denims will fade for? Or do they ever stop fading?

I'll probably not stop wearing it until i feel satisfied with it already or i can't wear it anymore (grown out of it or too many holes).

Stopped reading at the improper use of notorious.
It doesn't mean famous son, it means infamous.

lol my bad if that was unclear, i meant after you wear them for a while, it'll take more time to see the change in fade right? (As compared to brand new)

depends on what fabric/material+wear time that determine your fades it could take 2weeks or 1 year to start fading nicely. Another thing is stop fucking worrying about such minute details and wear the dam jeans. If it lasts 2-3 years great, if it lasts 1 year great. They are jeans FFS stop babying them and just wear it.

lol, ive been wearing my sammys for 4 years now... stopped for a year because i moved to another country where it was too hot for 24-oz denim. 

Its not "minute details" if i want to know if i can continue to fade this pair or not. However, I realize my original post was unclear that I'm talking about a worn pair, not a brand new one.

I wear it until I feel like having a different fit. For the past year and a half I wore my Samurai's, but recently i wanted to slim down my fits and not be so baggy so I copped some Momo's for a steal of $99. B)
