Uniqlos fit is nice... but the quality of the denim is shit. They're using the whole "selvedge" denim for a cheap price to sell. I've got 2 pairs of the premium japanese raw selvedge but to be honest they barely fade at all. If you wanted to see how fading works, before moving onto a better brand, I'd go with the Levis Shrink to Fit. But if anyones interested, I've got my navy uniqlo waist 32. Worn for about 1-2 months... untouched for 3-4 years. $30

Lol great job with the marketing.... dont expect to sell the jeans now that uve given ur honest opinion...

But yeah, some of the cheaper quality raw selvedges just dont produce the dazzling effects you would expect of raw selvedges. My cheap mondays for one, havent changed much if at all from day 1. $80 down the drain.

But if any one wants em theyre yours for $20. Guess I didnt do a good job of marketing either

haha maybe someone doesn't want to throw down much for selvedge denim and only wants the nice fit besides you can't buy uniqlo anywhere in North America except New York and LA (which is opening soon, if not already opened).

found some of the 501s. this was a few years ago when I wore my jeans kinda baggy haha
I think this is pretty much 3 months in when I stopped wearing them.



APC New Standard at 4 months.. couldn't find any newer pictures



Thanks man! I'll def try STF first to see if raw denim is my thing. Did you happen to up size as the tag recommended or did you stay with your size.

I think I stayed with my size or went down 1... can't really remember. I got mine at the Bay, not sure if they still carry these. But it's definitely cheaper there compared to Levis store.

Naked and famous stretch denim isn't raw right? Its 2% stretch so does that mean it won't fade?

I recently bought a pair of Nudie Average Joe Dry Dirt Jeans, and on my 3rd day of wearing them, I notice the cotton pilling all over the place...

Anyone else have this kind of problem ?

-Might be able to find Rocks at Barneys New York, though they might have stopped carrying them now (Next to Nordstrom)
-Macy's (only in Downtown do they carry Rocks)
-The mall which is connected to Barneys (forgot what it's called) has a True Religion store inside as well
