Need advice on which "raw jeans" to buy for my very first! :)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I have never owned a pair of raw jeans ever but after seeing pictures, it really got my attention. I know this has been probably posted a lot of times before but I am just curious if what brand stands out "NOW" as in currently. Is it the same? I saw lots of recommendations for Naked and Famous or Nudie. Has that changed? 90% of jeans I buy are Diesel. I strictly wear thanaz, thavar, shioner. What do you guys think of Diesel turbo 8y9? Phukette was nice enough to point me in the right direction which is Nudie jeans Thin Finn.

 

I really need your help guys. I would really appreciate it if you could also post links on where to buy of whatever raw jeans that will be recommended.

 

 

 

basically i need help on

 

-brand? (my budget would be around $150-200)

 

-sizing? (i wear 28x30 or  27x30 in thavar, thanaz, shioner) (does raw denim shrink after wash? should i size up?)

i found out there's a process called sanforizing, should i assume most raw denim went through this process?

 

-dry and raw denim are the same right?

 

what do you guys think of this one?

many many thanks in advance!! :)

Hopefully a more experienced raw denim expert can chime in as well but I think usually you'll want your true size as they can fit snug and stretch with wear. I would avoid washing your jeans. Here are a couple of other threads that may be helpful as well: this blog post and this thread.

Check out rawr denim they have a lot of guides. Raws never fit as well as diesels. I have tried haha. The turbos fade quickly but are very poor quality.

One can't go wrong with Nudie. Dulac Studio offers raw denim products in your price range. I have the slim fit and it fits like APC New Standard. I posted a pic of the slim fit here : http://www.denimblog.com/c/t/203107/dulac-jeans
