I've bought a lot of raw denim over the last few years, and love the aesthetic, but I secretly hated buying and wearing it. The size always changed and it was impossible to predict how it would fit after a year of wear and a couple of washes. Dollar for dollar, I was never satisfied with it the way I am with shoes or outerwear, which is why I've owned so many pairs. I ultimately succumbed to cheap Gap jeans and 511s and haven't looked back.
