Where did you order from? How do you go a year without washing a pair of jeans?

I ordered from CosmicBobo.com. I don't plan on going for an entire year without washing lol. Probably going to soak it once in a while and will be airing/freezing to get any smell out.

Not washing jeans for long times isnt for everyone.
I haven't washed my 2 yet, and don't plan on doing it either. Ive done about 6 months of wear on both, but dont wear it everyday. I just hang them up outside to let them air out.
I have a pair of levi's 501 that I wear for work (window cleaning), and I wash those, but not that often.

The problem with not washing jeans is that the sweat and oils secreted by your body build up in the jeans, which in turn attracts bacteria that will begin feeding on the denim causing it to thin and become more prone to tearing.

I wash my work jeans nightly and they never rip unless they get hooked on a nail, compared to the guys on my crew who never wash their jeans and get giant rips in them randomly.

Indigo is a bit harder to fade from what I've read. Deep Indigo you'll get nicer fades a lot quicker than Indigo.

I just got my pair today and they're waaaay too long. Anyone have any recommended tailors that'll do a good hem? Or is there a special way to hem the jeans?

If you are a super purist and hem them locally you will lose the chain stitching that is done. You also want to make sure your denim is not going to shrink before you hem them. Just stack'em!

Don't hem! You'll lose the chainstitch and the nice puckered effect it gives the hem... just let them stack. Or if too long then cuff and stack.

It stacks way too much. There's probably a good 5" that needs the be hemmed off and even then it'll still be stacking! I'm only 5'6 and these jeans are rather long lol. I don't mind losing the chain stiching if there isn't a way to preserve it.

No one has a chain stitch machine in vancouver, you'll have to send it out and I don't think its worth it to do that. Chain stitch kind of makes it special and it'll fade nicer.

I'm the same height as you and have a 35 inch inseam too and I let it stack.. check out the pics a page back. The honeycombs or creases behind your knee will bring up the inseam a bit too. Give it a few days of wear and let the stacks settle before you decide to hem it. Or try stack and cuff? Haha if you really can't stand the look then just hem I guess.

35" inseam isnt that much. Im 5'7 and my sammies are 34" and they stack a bit. I dont like too much stack either.
The first 2 have about 6 months of wear each, but I don't wear them often, prob 1-2 times a week. The other one I wear for work, haven't been washed in about a week.

Skinny Guys. It's unfortunate that my stacks are all gone.. even some of my combs are in different places. Oh well. Now I know not to machine wash.. -_-

And as for Natural Indigo vs Deep Indigo..
Definitely go for the Deep Indigos. I have the Natural Indigos and they are quite stubborn to fade.

I don't think I'll be hemming them anymore. They're actually not that bad with the cuff (need to do a little smaller than that though). Just hoping it'll stretch out a bit faster haha.

How many cuffs is that? Doesn't look like you have much stacking at all.

edit: here's an update on my beater APC NS. Around 8 months total wear with 1 wash at 6 months. Use them for washing my car or other dirty stuff.

Spoiler!

btw guys, I got a pair of naked and famous 32 skinny guy deep indigo's that are brand new. I bought it off revolve clothing but they are too small. Deep indigos are a great starter pair at an amazing price in my opinion. They costed me 170 total at the door. So i'll have em go for 140 is someone wants them.
