We all have been “Uber-reading” about athleisurewear, yoga jeans, stretch denim…..
And I feel that it’s about time to get back to the roots. The denim roots of course. Raw jeans, Selvedge jeans, unbelievable, how these are getting lost in the maze of all that 3/4/5 way stretch obsession.
Again, I don’t think that there is anything wrong with above mentioned stretch jeans, but come on, have you forgotten that delicious, sensual feel of a pair of raw or selvedge denim against your skin? There is just nothing like wearing in a pair of unadulterated rigid jeans. Ok, I admit that it is almost impossible for us to do it the right way and wear just one pair of jeans for months, years. But luckily, there is a way out of this dilemma.
There are tons of “prepared” ready made raw and selvedge jeans out there, some of them even have stretch – so we decided to go “web-hunting” and here is what we found.
And btw- lots of people associate raw and selvedge jeans with straight leg, “serious” no frill styles. Wrong – just check out this Junya Watanabe bad boy below, and some others more down in this post … Far from boring and plain, right!
Let us know, are you ready for a change, an addition (not a substitution), to your denim collection? By all means, you need to keep all the stretch and yoga thingies you already own and wear them in good health, too! LOL
But you also could think about – well, making a statement, be different, don’t just follow fashion, but create your own fashion! Your friends will love you for this, and your unfriended ex-friends will be soon be wanting to befriend you again 😉
