Haha yeah, I don't have any concrete plans yet, but right now I think I'd like to get at least 100 wears before I wash to make sure they're as contrasty as possible.  Most of what I consider to be the best looking actual raws have come from people that wait a full year or more of daily wears before they wash them (I really like sharp fades and high contrast) and based on my progress, I think 100 wears should be roughly the same for this pair as a year's worth would be for a typical pair of raws.  We'll see though. :)  My only real concerns with my pair right now are that the cell phone fade is going to blow through the bottom 2 corners if I keep it there and that the back of the crotch seems to be fading slightly faster than most of the rest of the jeans, so it could potentially be a blow through area at some point.  I'm happy with my cell phone fade already, so I'm going to just start carrying my phone in a jacket to prevent the tear.  I think I probably don't need to worry about the crotch for quite a bit longer, but if it becomes a problem, I'll just patch it I guess.  I'll try to get another picture here after 50 wears or something.

what you guys think guys will happen when i wash the jeans before i wear them for the first time -

can i keep the color without getting a vintage look?

 

and will the jeans shrink in the waist because of the raw denim?

No reason to wash them.  They're not really technically "raw", so they won't shrink much.  I gave mine their first wash after about 70 wears and they still continue to fade and lose color, so that's probably not going to slow them down much.  Mine did shrink when I washed them, but this is only because they'd been stretched out from wear.  I'd say they shrunk back down to about the original size, but with another 20 wears since then, they've stretched back out to wear they were at pre-wash.

 

BTW, I'll post some new pics here shortly.  I'm on day 90 today (haven't worn them quite as much in the last month or 2, only 3-4 times a week since I've gotten a couple other new pairs), so I was thinking of washing them again around day 100 and I'll get new pictures up at some point before then and then again afterwards.

hey cander,

 

could you please post up some recent pics. your last ones were after 34 wears and i'm curious to see how they've aged since then. a store close by has them on sale for 30% of the ticket price and they're flying of the rack so pics from you would help make up my mind before it's too late!

 

thanks!

I recently posted pics after 111 wears.  It has its own thread somewhere on the first couple pages of the Diesel section.
