I never own a raw jeans, not because I don't like the heaviness or the possibility of breaking in a tough material of clothing, because I like thick leather... but because of their smell... or how people who wear those kind of jeans always have smelly pants at least in my experience. I want to give raw denim a try because their long inseam and the thickness of the fabrics might give a unique look when paired with boots, but I wonder can I just wash them the same way I wash all my mall jeans (inside out, cold water, on monthly basis) or are they developed with dye so easy to fade it would turn light blue in few washes? so far when I googled them around it always shocked me how few months of wear turns these supposed to be strong pants into a tattered faded mess, and I'm shocked at how little they are ever washed I kind of afraid it is enginered like recent leather jacket that would prematurely aged. how do you guys think or experience on it? how long they look decently dark and intact for just normal city life wear, would it be a waste to buy them and then just wash them often like any other pants? or are they specifically designed for sole purpose of somekind of fading contest in mind geared toward jeansheads only?
