Then again, I'm really picky about colors. My ex would say, "oh hey, we're matching!" and I'd be like, "nope, your grey shirt is a few shades darker than mine and your jeans have a lighter wash," which pissed her off to no end.
You're so metro, man.
Lighter wash? What does that even mean?
Denim is basically two color threads woven together. The lower thread is typically white (or very close to it) and the top color is indigo. Raw denim will have very little to no fading, and the indigo color will be almost black in color (and is very expensive in most cases).
Washed denim will be pre-faded. Most jeans are washed thoroughly to produce a faded look.
And yeah, I guess you could call me metro. I prefer to think of myself as fashion-conscious. I don't go for wild fashions (like rolled cuffs, which is stupid and a fad), but I stick to the basics and make sure my clothes fit well.
It means the jeans were washed less, which I think would make them a darker color.
Nope, the opposite. Lighter wash means that the jeans were washed more before they were sold, making them lighter in color.
Most of my jeans are very very dark wash, because I like the fade that they get through wearing (the wallet and iPhone fades on my front pockets are awesome).
And because dark jeans are much easier to dress up while still remaining casual.
