I do NOT chase fades. I wear and treat my denim like the cheap work wear clothing for the blue collar folk that they were. Wear them hard. Wipe your dirty hands on them. Wash them when you can’t stand them any more (one wearing or fifty it’s just blue jeans).
In my experience the less you value them the more character they acquire.

ooh, that's interesting. Might try that on an older pair before committing a pair of LVC's. 

To continue the fade topic...how do y'all decide which way to go with your fade? I currently have:
* a pair of '66 501's
* a pair of '33 501's
* a triple pleat blouse (indigo)
* a '36 506xx

The '66 I've decided to use mostly as work/casual pants, so after the initial hot soak/couple months of setting creases, I wash them whenever they get dirty and I'm getting a nice low-contrast fade

The '33 501's and '36 type I jacket...I haven't washed yet since their initial hot soaks, and the jacket is starting to show white bits on the peaky creases. 

Most of the reference pics I'm seeing show a pretty even fade on the type I jackets, but I've seen one or two that have decent contrast, and they look really cool. Like a stone-y finish, almost. I just think high contrast can look a little gawdy sometimes.

So, yeah! 
Please give me input on how you decide what type of fade you chase, and maybe general guidelines on when you decide to wash (or not).

Here's my type I:

@mikejungle

some of the cinchback era repro had a slightly of white weft.
if you want to achieve this yellowish look,  probably dye your jeans whith tea.

I assume it’s got to do with environmental (staining)? I’ve never given it any thought. I just wear my jeans as long as possible before washing and whatever comes out on the other end is what I got.

Do y'all lean one way or the other on fade-styles? 

I like seeing a nice vintage fade with a decent amount of contrast...but unsure how to get that perfect medium.

I'm sure time and experience will help with the former, but my real question is: 
How are some fades yellowy instead of white? Is it possible to achieve for a non-miner?

Yeah. I think I had a pair of those. Late 90s/early 2000s maybe.

Yep. I think it was a recent thing. They probably hold little value- if any.

Possibly not the news you’re after. Sorry😢

It's not a fake, it is part of a line called Capital E, I don't know how many years it lasted, not many. I think they were made in the USA.
