Where should I begin?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Okay so I have been very interested in getting a pair of Raw Denim jeans for a while now but never got them.

 

My normal jean size at like American Eagle or similar places is 30x30

 

 

I want to know what you reccomend to start out with my first pair of raw denim?  What brand, where to buy etc?
I do not want to get extremely expensive ones for my first pair.  I want to see how much I like them first than make a decision for more expensive ones

Any help is appreciated.


 

 

Thank you in advance for your help

Jimmy

By the way I live in the Philadelphia area so if there are stores that sell them let me know

 

What would you reccomend for Nudie Jeans.  I want something a little bit form fitting but they dont need to be skinny fit.

 

I want to get a pair less than $200.00

 


Thanks for the help

Nudie this is a good choice, see also A.P.C

if you have an PayPal account or credit card, you'll find many on-line stores in which they are available, you can also check here http://www.denimblog.com/c/forum/list/2

Hey thanks for the response.  So I am looking for a pair of Nudie Jeans any reccomendations of websites to buy from?  The thing I am worried about is finding a pair that fits or if I buy online and it doesnt fit that i can return it to get another size.

 

Let me know if you have any suggestions


Thanks for the help,

Jimmy

If you're interested in the Nudie jeans my recommendation would be to find a local retailer that sells them (Boutique or big box i.e. Bloomy's, Neiman Marcus, Barney's) and try the different fits and washes until you find a pair you love. Once you know the fit and size you want I'd suggest shopping www.cultizm.com as they typically have a great price point for all their Nudie jeans. If you are looking for a relatively fitted but not skinny Nudie's fit I'd stick to Grim Tim or Slim Jim. Personally, I love the Nudie's dry Thin Finns. Hope this helps and trust me Cultizm is a great website to work with as I have done a ton of business with them.

my first pair of dry/selvage denim was a nudie regular ralf dry selvage.

 

i loved that pair. still have em. 3 years of wear and they look awesome.

 

as many others will recommend, apc is a good choice too. new standards and nudies can be had for around $160. though apc is just about to raise their prices.

 

nudie has a very nice selection of styles, configurations, and fits, and are typically more widely available than the higher end japanese brands.
