if done right very nice. starch the jeans. wear them sand the creases and knees. do a couple times. maybe once a day for a week. wash them. use diluted bleach if nessary to increase fades. use razor to enhance fades.

I use:

Razors
Knives
Scissors
Sandpaper
Towel
Mechanical pencil tips
Needles (for un-doing stitching)

but thats all for holes and increasing the size of a natural fade. Natural is def the way to go

starch high crease/wear areas, crotch, back of the knees, inner thighs etc, sit indian style till startch dries so creases set. then maybe get a damp rag and just brush over the creases. im sure indigo will come off and it wont be as abrasive as sand paper or bleach.

*note* ive never tried this, in theory it just sound like itll work
