I've been wearing these for, I think, a little over a year in a half. Maybe almost two, on and off. So I don't have the exact history on them. Wear them for the first half of the day as my work pair. As for caring for them, wearing them I didn't care! But as for washing them, for this pair, I do a light hand sink wash with about 2 table spoons of detergent and let them dry on the counter every two months. The holes on the fly come from leaning against a table everyday. Fades at the pocket are from my pocket knife. Overall, the jeans got way lighter in shade. I think its because I hand wash these more regularly then my other pairs.

I don't know why, but I love it when (like your pair) below the knee the denim fades to an all over lighter shade of blue, rather than honeycombing on the stacks. (for some reason) It's one of my favorite things about raw denim, i think it might be because of the awesome blue color it produces - your jeans are a fantastic example!
Sorry - I probably explained that terribly and I bet you have no idea what i'm talking about - hah!
