Well the Levis CEO said it so it must be true.(Had a conversation with a friend who is not into denim and when the topic of raw denim was brought up he immediately referenced the Levis CEO's remarks on wearing for a year before washing and his talking points to why.)
Yes and no. I don't have a desire to accumulate more but, when needed I have a short list of what I would buy when needed. That said I'm looking forward to sending in a pair of jeans to indigo proof for a second repair.
