Hmm, I try to wear them everyday for as long as possible. Not just 6 months, but as long as it takes until I´m happy with the way they look. it usually takes a year before I wash them the first time, And you have to be a little careless about getting them dirty. if you spill something on them, don`t care. just wear them as you`r true second skin. There is no true shortcuts for wearing out denim fast. Just live you`re life with the jeans on and the jeans will be a reflection of you after some time. Hope you find the answer helpful.
