Every jeans made, which people wear be it Rigid or Lycra first sewed in raw format, fabric cut through pattern blocking and then sewed on different machine, once all done, it’s sent to wash, there are several kind of wash depending on type of indigo each wash will give unique effect to denim, very basic wash is hard wash or stone wash, which make new fabric little bit worn out and softer look, and make it softer,

second wear the jeans and seat on couch of table , you will see the lines from crotch to sides coming due to seating posture, rub sand paper on that from top to bottom, which will fade out the indigo from top of the line pattern leaving the indigo below line intact, will give instant whiskers effect, you can put sand paper on drill machine or rolling motor mechanism and move drill machine from side over the jeans where you want to fade out the indigo, do as it please you, and you will have some custom made jeans with whiskers of your own
