so it becomes a very personal shape and gets the wrinkles nicely.

2.When you wash, use a neutral detergent with no bleach and wash it inside out in 60 degrees
  in order to get a better fading effect of the indigo and the natural worn in effects also get more evident.
3.Your everyday life gives the denim its unique character and
  the more you wear and treat your jeans, the more beautiful they get.
