For years, fools strived to break in pairs of raw denim, ruining numerous pairs of white shoes, white shirts, and white furniture, all in search of fades they could be proud of. And while wearing in a pair of jeans can be a rewarding experience, let's be real: In today's world, ain't nobody got time for that. It's okay to cheat and just go straight to copping a washed pair of denim. Just make sure the fit is clean and the jeans are fairly minimal—no gross back pockets or tacky looking hardware. Throw 'em on with a blazer and you'll be on your way to looking like a street style pro in no time.
