It's really up to you how you want to take care of your jeans. The more often you wash them the "healthier" the jeans are, less bacteria build up, less stronger fibers, etc. If you choose not to wash them regularly your fades will be of higher contrast.

I personally choose to hold off on washing and have only washed my pair of N&F once since I've had them. I've been wearing my Tellason's almost every day for a month and a bit now with no washes.

No need to worry about dropping stuff on the jeans or damaging them to give it personalization, just wearing them the way you want to will give it it's own character.

Check out:
ABC Denim
Rawr Denim

Great resources for some raw denim

If you are not concerned about the process or personalization then try a pair of first. Cause you might not like the feel. Cause it'll take a while before they get comfortable. So if you aren't liking them then go for non raw stuff.

They have a lot of different styles too.

Looking at getting 875's sometime this week! They have a store right across metro
Red Wing's cool, but I am thinking Danner boots

Naked&Famous is probably the most readily available raw denim you can get, for the best price. You can find them at Holt Renfrew, Plenty, Hills, Dutil, BoysCo.. anywhere. Average price is I think $150? I've seen some on sale for around $100.

Also check out Unbranded. They're made by Naked&Famous. Doesn't have any branding on it, just solid raw denim. I think I saw some at Below the Belt for $80. For the price, these should be a no-brainer. Especially if they're your first pair of raws.

My first pair of raw denim was Unbranded, I still wear them every now and then.

Pretty sweet website haha. I might pick up a pair when I head to NYC or when I go to Portland.

In the mean time I ended up getting the Red Wing 875s! Really comfy boots. Quality is top notch!


Only pic I have of them right now :P

A little bit too much, it's cuffed maybe 4-5 times. Want to keep the chain stitching on this pair so I'm waiting until I can get them hemmed at Self Edge when I go there in Oct.

So my NF's came in. 40 waist is surprisingly loose in the calves, considering mine are pretty big (rugby player's legs). Just need to wear them in a little more to loosen up the waist a tad. Other than that, they're comfortable as hell already, and I look forward to the end result once they're totally broken in!

To those who are in the market for a new pair of jeans, I am getting a new shipment of APC PS's again. Many RS members here have purchased these from me, have had no problems.
