We need a waywt stance thread.

I'm of two minds as to whether I should buy some raws this winter and what price point I should go in at. Feel like it's either gonna be albam/unbranded or some £200 waste of cash.

How do you avoid crotch blowouts before cool holes form?


Follow up question: are crotch blowouts cool holes?

man i have had so many raws that i just never kept up with in terms of really wearing them out. two pairs of nudies, apc ns, levis, n&f, a bunch of uniqlo. but i always end up just leaving them in my closet or giving them to my brother when i went back to school the next year. i'm probably going to pick up a new pair of raws this fall. i was thinking of baldwin or something american, but we'll see.

these were my favorites though. uniqlo mij. i bought them in 2008, this is from 2010, i have no idea where they are now.

My New Standards... since May 2011, countless washes

these... i'm not even sure what these are. my very first pair of "raws". they're the PS cut. i bought them on sale on the APC website, thinking they were raws, but in hindsight i think they must have been part of that seasonal collection. i remember the colour was called "indigo" so i assumed they were the normal raws. they're lighter weight though, and are indigo warp and weft. i sized down two but they never stretched all that much. i think they only faded like they did through a combination of tightness and sheer teenage pigheadedness.

"A.P.C. RUE MADAME PARIS"
proper PSs would say "PETIT STANDARD" right?

i have to cuff, otherwise they don't break; exaggeratedly short through cuffing looks better than slightly too short imo

what's the deal with black raw denim? Paging odradek.

I kind of like the idea of getting a pair of black jeans in winter, and wearing and washing them until they're grey for spring.

yeah there should be another small tag next to the size tag that says petit standard. i also have a pair of weird PS that are made in japan and they didn't fade that much (maybe because of the small % of elastane)

my ubs are holding out fine, was never on board with raws till a few months back when i finally traded in my asos jeans for these. glad i did. don't think you're ever going to get fades/holes like apc or other fast faders from unbranded like most people want, but you'll get some nice jeans which look like 'worn jeans' after a few months, at least i did.

that said i'm gagging for something heavier and with a longer inseem, these are only 34'' which just gives me a full break and like 14oz with the fit being skinnier than i intended. would love some ironheart 21-25 oz.

No secret that I'm creating a line at the moment, but I thought I'd share this super top secret spoiler. Here's a first look at our very special denim. I'll do a full write up when I get the full sample yardage in.

Also, not a great camera, but I take this in the spirit of shitty 'leak pics' that always drop around big announcements.

Anyone fancy a sweepstake on the leg opening of Bobbin's jeans? 20cm? 25?

I'm not going to say any more on this until my full write up BUT

Re: fit

You'll be surprised. It's not anti-fit.

Re: Twill

It's not broken twill. It's something a little more... interesting.
