A stonewash uniformly abrades jeans, giving them a brighter tone. Since the entire jeans are abraded, this process doesn't replicate a worn-in appearance; instead, it highlights the denim's texture and lightens its tone. The greatest “drawback” of not looking authentically worn-in is also its greatest upside – the look is clean, emphasizing the fabric's textural qualities. The abrasion and complete removal of starch also give the jeans a slightly "brushed" surface, making them more comfortable than dry and rinsed jeans.

An authentic worn-in wash resembles a worn-in pair of jeans, typically featuring a faded tone, abrasions, and contrasting wear marks. This process technically refines a stonewash by adding wear patterns or even damages and repairs. It's considered the most artisanal wash category, capable of closely resembling vintage jeans. However, most common is the middle way between a stonewash and a vintage-like wash, emphasizing the denim's aging properties while showcasing wear patterns.
