Freeze jeans in zip lock bag with dryer sheet for 4 days to kill bacteria and freshen jeans. Repeat for 1 year max then by new $11 pair at Walmart.

You're Welcome.

Why not just wash them? I turn my clothing inside out when washing, I can wear jeans for more than one wearing but they do need to be eventually washed. (I also don't buy super high-end brand jeans) - as to black jeans specifically, I do think they look a little nicer/dressier if you wish - depends on the top and footwear.

I hate them once they fade even a little, so that's not practical.

Says YOU.

Black jeans look just fine on men AND women. What a silly statement.

Also, for the record, I despise "tight and formfitting" jeans. I don't know how anyone can stand to wear them like so many do these days. No thank you. I might as well put on two pair of pantyhose!!

This. I like dark blue or even charcoal a lot better than black jeans. I particularly don't like the way they look when they fade.

Right! I can't even stand bootcut and straight leg jeans. The closest to "formfitting" I'll wear is relaxed fit and I mean real relaxed fit, not that relaxed straight garbage they're trying to pass off.

Put a pair of black jeans on a guy with a nice body. Add a black leather jacket and wow. Far from trashy IMO.

Black jeans reminds me of 80s rockers and punks, goths, and now those scrawny thugs in masks running around punching people.

I went through a phase of wearing all black. The tops and the bottoms never matched exactly because there are different shades of black and they fade differently. I found out black is not low maintenance.

When they fade, re-dye them

Most of the time, I try to avoid head-to-toe black. If I'm in the mood of looking tough or sinister and wear black jeans with a black shirt, the shirt has a pattern.

I've heard that almost never works.
