Nah alex, let the paint sit for a while. See what it does to the jeans overall look.

If it's no good then take some paint thinner, but a little bit on a rag and start scrubbing and see what THAT does to the jeans overall look. That'd be interesting to see... Post some pics of the jeans with paint on them.

Thank ye kindly.

This is my second pair of raw denim. My first was a pair of Earnest Sewn fultons that I wore for about 4 months every day and then washed.... and nothing happened. They were still basically dark as hell. Much happier with these results.

Why only wear them four or five months before washing?

Also, nothing is going to change drastically after washing them once.

You're gonna lose indigo, sorry.

You don't just lose indigo, you lose all the honeycombs, wrinkles and so on. dry denim before the first wash also seems to wear and fade much easier. In the last two months II've worn my jeans as hard as the first three, but they barely look any different than they did the first wash.

I should've said from my experience. I did lose some wrinkles & honeycombs after a wash, but it really wasn't a distinct change. But, for real, I apologize if my earlier post created any confusion.

It still escapes me why you would wash yr raw denim after any less than six months of heavy wear.

sorry for shaky quality. i could've done better but my hands are super cold and it was windy.

the after shots will probably be a little better.

they are a deeper blue in actuality, i couldn't adjust the color properly, odd time of day to be shooting (6ish)

anyways, sorry again for blurriness

Does context stock APC NC in size 31? Every time I look, even after a restock, they don't seem to have any.

I have the same stacking as Jeepster about 3 inches from the opening, just 1 crease. I don't cuff or anything. It's been there since I got my jeans since that's how it was folded. It's still there, can't seem to get rid of it no matter how I stack it.

constant_struggle, those seem room yfor New Cures

double cuffed. the first crease closest to the bottom is from leaving them creased from day 1 to about 6.5 months

wicked retarded stacking, yo.
