YAY NUDIES! But...i want to keep the color?

So i purchased an awesome pair of Slim Jim Nudies just the other day since i was looking for a really plain dark dark denim. They fit great and everything but then i got home and read the label...DRY DENIM. I really don't want to return them and i don't want them to fade...(defeating the purpose of them i know i know). According to the sticky that i read if i just wash them before i wash the indigo dye should just evenly spread throughout the jean? Should i wash them more than once before i wear them? I want to keep these as dark as possible without fading!

Thanks

They are going to fade eventually
you can't really stop it
a slight wash is going to delay the fading process, but you're still going to lose some color

I heard that putting white vinegar into your wash will help the dye stay in your jeans...you think it still applies to dry denim?

Wash them cold with vinegar and no detergent. It should delay the fading process.

Another option is to get a second pair, which will ensure you get twice the amount of wear.

Pure Blue Japan sells denim with supposedly non fading dye called Indanthrene. Being water insoluble should make it last a lot longer.

^ I saw them at BIG and they are interesting indeed. One can do with a pair of dark jeans that doesn't fade. The other option is to buy lots of dry denim and rotate them each day you wear, which will ensure minimal fading.

That's the first time, I hear somebody wanna avoid getting some fades on raw denim.

The Jeansmuseum suggest, just to wear them and let them fade naturally. And after some time, you'll love the personalized fading style.

----------
Jeansmuseum:
The Jeansmuseum encourage people to wear their raw denim stuff as long as possible and best if never washed to keep their original raw denim colour. After their end of lifecycle, hang them on a wall, frame them or whatever, but just never throw them away. But if you wanna get rid of them at any time, then contact the Jeansmuseum, who offers a safe place for all your beloved favorite items, where they can survive forever in the real world not on the virtuel net only, what they really deserve after a long and hard life.
