I thought I would share some photos of my RRL raw Wrangler repros. I apologize for the poor quality of these photos. These are a couple of years old, and unrinsed/unwashed. Go ahead and wince you namby-pambies.
What is most striking to me is how long it has taken to even get the wear I have to be noticeable. I have a brand new pair of the same jeans in a sealed bag. At some point, I will do a better photo with the new pair for contrast. I really love the Wrangler repros, but they are made from some stiff and sturdy denim as these still have a long way yet to go.
