First pair of raw jeans

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So after reading a bunch of posts on the forum, I've decided to buy a pair of Nudie jeans for my first raw denim experience. I'm buying the following: Nudie 'Slim Jim' Slim Straight Leg Raw Jeans (Dry Navy Organic Wash). There seemed to be varying messages across the forum, so I'm curious. If my waist size is usually a 36-inch, should I buy 34-inch (one size down) to allow for stretching?

Not sure if you already got em but, generally yes you should size down for stretching otherwise you are going to eventually have nicely worn  jeans that are way too big in the waist/hip area.  Take it from me I know.  It is going to feel uncomfortable at first but if you wear them for long periods of time everyday for a week that feeling should pass.  At first it should be quite difficult to button up.

I have tried the slim jims and thin finns they are very nice jeans :) high quality and still wear them after a years worth of wearing

Yes, size down... I'm a 30" waist and I recently picked up a pair of dry thin finn's. I've worn them for about two weeks and they're too loose. Next time I would buy an inch smaller.

Hey guys ,

 

I suggest you to wear your raw denims min 6 months before wash. and when washing times come , you can have a shower while your jeans are on you...it helps for getting better effects..

 

I strongly suggest to try Diesel Turbo Denim and Hudson Turbotech .. Diesel Turbodenim is in the stores and Hudson will be soon. These raw jeans are made from a speacial denim fabric which has rapid aging technology. so you can have 4 years worn look in 6 months. please check the photo below.. it's my Turbo jeans , back side of the knee.. I worn them 3 months and photo has been taken before wash..

No-one should buy turbodenim.  The quality is terrible.  They are not made from a special denim fabric with rapid aging technology, they simply have a weaker indigo dip.  My turbodenims were pretty much destroyed by 3-4 months of wear and, due to the super weak indigo soak that allows them to fade faster, every wash takes away a substantial amount of the color (ie, making it hard to get contrast and instead just fading the entire denim more evenly than typical raws).  I'm not sure about the quality of Hudson turbotech (probably also terrible if I had to guess), but the fit looks awful.  Anyone reading this should do themselves a favor and buy real raw denim, not this overhyped "turbo" joke.

Wear those for a little longer and they'll start to look like this:

This is after 6 months of wear.  These jeans are a joke.

Awesome pics! Lurkers, please post your own raw-wear photos. I am still trying to find a good raw pair in a women's cut. Do you have any recommendations for me? Any would be much appreciated. Thanks!

How are the Nudies treating you so far?
