^^seriously, wow. that was probably one of the dumbest posts ive seen.
PPL are so cheap that they dont just get a pre distressd pair?
most people who go through this process buy jeans that are 150-400 dollars so they can get the better indigo denim that will wear better and look nicer. and people dont like buying shit predistressed jeans because they look fake. you might as well be buying jeans from old navy, because the wash houses are getting better at making more expensive looking wear and tear. the reason they wear them out themselves is because its more personal and they will have an authentic wear, rather than some mass produced one..
I mean predistressed imitates long usage, but doesnt replicate it, because it looks wack as fuck.
imitation is replication. to imitate is to do something similar to something else. to replicate is to copy, which means making it similar to the original. washing houses (the places that make your fucked up looking jeans) do studies and give raw denim to people to wear to see how they fade in order for them to RECREATE the same effect.
Especially RAW denim.....seriously, who was the guy who said wearing Raw denim for months in a row was cool? or looks good? That fool needs to kicked.
in order to get a good contrast of wear with denim they cant be washed before the wear has taken place because the indigo will leech out in the wash and the wiskers and fading will not be as pronounced. most premium jeans have 3 hours of grinding, sanding, etc. before they are washed. even your precious predistressed jeans have to have been distressed before it is washed or else you will look like you are wearing walmart jeans.
