    though i love dirt stains on a pair of great used jeans...but these are almost way too many for my liking!
    2 washes couldn´t remove all the "dirt" out of my 634s-raw, so i have to live with the stains, which i can ;-)
    i see i need to post here more :p

    When a hard used raw denim pants was worn in an authentic way, then the dirt in them belongs to them as an authentic part of their life

    Aahhh Raffa I'm so sorry to hurt the fading comunity here. And I agree that I have seen many nice washed items with super great fadings around

    I would love to wash all my raw denim stuff if there would be a way to go back to the unwashed version again.
    I'm still so hooked up on the never washed shiny raw denim colour since my childhood. The items don't have to be dirty or stained but just still in dry condition.

    Who knows if I'll be ever able to do so at least with one or two pants or denim jackets some day?

    Perhaps when my raw denim eyes will be turned in to sort of raw denim blindness?

    Got it
    Let's see if I find one pair which I could survive to see them in washed condition without killing myself

    I prefer the grainy structure of the 666, though they look not typical for IHs.
