Levis, Raw

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was browsing the Levi's store in Santa Monica and came across a large collection of raw/unwashed/dry denim. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Levis, or would coin-in a suggestion/comment before I take the plunge and purchase a pair.

Somewhat concerned with the price of Diesels, it may be time to switch to an old favorite.

Thanks folks!

I bought a pair of 501 shrink to fit. I think you can find really good information from this link

Hey there ! The STF that are the cheap ones aren't the STF w/selvage from days of yore. You know, when my dad and I wore them.
They have repros but then those are expensive and the fit tends to be more traditional.

You would look fabulous in Diors, but they are a mazillion dollars.

Begret, for whatever the reason, I you

If you happen to have an older pair lemme know! I want to dabble with Levis, they seem to have a steady fan base and the price is agreeable

Whatever the reason <3 you back.
I am talking like 1970's and my dad's from the 50/60's ...he did the bathtub soaking raw selvedge thing back then too.

Then in the 80's Levi's 501's went to shit. That's how I got into diesel, and I judge every pair of jeans against those long ago 501's in some way.

If you want to see how they fit go down to one of the good vintage stores and try on the oldest ones you can find. The rise is quite high, and the leg is a true straight.

Levis still has a bunch of selvage STF jeans and not all of them are LVC. I've seen selvage raw 501s that were like $90, I've seen "levis red" selvage STF jeans for about $150, there are frequently Capitol E raw ones with selvage altho usually those are sanforized, and there's some levis eco STF greenline selvage 501s that I myself have...

Righto, I was lumping them all together.
Well UCLA, I guess it comes down to what you are willing to spend, as Diesel's high prices were part of your reasoning for exploring around.

Greenline selvedge Ben? How fun, that would match my eyes !

True, it looks as though I won't be avoiding the <$100 mark I was hoping for...that aside, I won't be paying near to the amount Diesel is currently charging (explain that to me, please!).

Thanks for those who contributed
