In the end all washed pairs try to mimic worn in raws. But a washed pair is always different from a worn in raw. It looks AND feels different.

Not only do I still wear them, I even bought a brand new MIJ raw AND a brand new MII raw recently (that makes 4 pairs of raws). As Aldo said DOAE is totally different, regarding denim as well as they are broken twill. Day Off is an amazing wash, but imo nothing compared to a worn in raw. I even prefer them over the Jakes. I enjoy wearing a pair of washed jeans from time to time though and will buy more pairs prolly, but I guess I am more into raw denim.
Btw. the ones I posted above wont stay in that state, they still evolve and by the time my next project is in that state, those will be even lighter. Then I might do some oil-(action-)painting and voila, nicest 07 UMC ever seen
