There are still those of you who associate raw denim with rigid, itchy, and stiff – think again! Raw denim refers to the wash. It means that the jeans have not been faded, or sandwashed, but are in the original true shade of blue indigo and raw black.
For example, see above a pair of raw indigo stretch jeans from Naked & Famous. They are really incredibly soft and comfortable. And as opposed to the skinny stretch spandex jeans that actually feel more like twill than denim, these jeans do have an authentic denim feel to them.
And also FYI – this fall and winter are going to be all about “clean” jeans, meaning, let’s get those ripped and distressed babies into storage and start thinking dark blue and even “somber”.
We have chosen some styles here in different price ranges. Let us know what you think and which one “captured” your denim heart!
And GUYS, don’t be sad, your turn is coming up tomorrow! Meantime, why don’t you borrow some bad boys from the ladies. Fair enough, as we always love to borrow (steal) from you guys as well!
