still don't understand why people want "fast" fading...breaking in denim is fun. its not about the fades. its about the journey. don't worry about techniques, and tricks to get the "look". relax...just don't think about it.
i understand what you mean. i do enjoy the journey quite a bit, but i don't enjoy long journeys. i have had power stretch's for 1 year already and worn them for at least 4-5 months and it looks like i only wore it for a few weeks. good thing i actually got that pair for free. otherwise it wouldn't have been a great buy.
i'm being indecisive right now and stuck between deep indigo and broken twill. which is a better buy?
I can only speak for my deep indigosand can't cosign the "my pair's already fading after 2 months!" statement above.
of course it depends on what you do in your denim and what you understand of fading.
mine are now 9 months in and the fades are getting more and more obvious, but I think it'll take another 2-3 months (probably on their birthday) when I'll first soak/wash them.
As a student I sit on my ass a lot but I also cycle to university and wore them pretty much on every occasion.
