Where on the jean rack is the one wash located? I brought a pair of the Shuttle Selvage in boot cut, but I didn't see the one wash in freehold.

I'm gonna have to try on the 501s, I think I might have to buy them in a 30, cause I have the feeling that my usual waist of 29 might be a little tight. Thanks again guys. If there are any others let me know.
I bought my Uniqlos in Japan, so I couldn't tell you, but look for the darkest, stiffest pair they have.

Re 501s: I think the 36 length ones have a higher rise than the rest - avoid.

Brian, thanks for the tip. I'll make sure that I get them in at least 33 or a 34, at least I can cuff them if they are too long.

The cheapest I've seen are Rustler raw denim jeans at Wal-Mart for $9.97. I'm not kidding.

i've never tried on a pair or even seen a pair in a store, but as just mentioned, a friend of mine has a pair of dry rustler jeans that actually look pretty damn good after about a year of wear. i don't know if the cut would fit everyone's style but they look great on him (oddly enough here's a photo of him in them but being in black and white you can't really get an idea of the fading, just the cut: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y95...t/DSCN1926.jpg0. they're a workwear jean and are made by wrangler and i think if you go to their website it'll point you to some places online to buy them. i don't know about the denim quality but the construction is likely to be far better than a pair of STFs or uniqlos as these are jeans that are made for digging ditches and framing houses.

the thing i think you also have to realize weirdnjfan1 is that while you're looking for a pair of dry jeans because they're fun to wear and break in, being in an unwashed state shouldn't be the only determining factors in finding a pair of jeans that you will like. i would personally find a cut that you like first and then try to find something similiar in an unwashed or one wash state second. a pair of 501's is not going to fit like a pair of uniqlos is not going to fit like a pair of H&M dry is not going to fit like a pair of workjeans, etc. i've noticed a lot of people walking around in jeans that are not complimentary to their body (tall, chunky dudes in new standards for example) just because they wanted a pair of dry denim. good luck with your hunt!!

great user name by the way. i grew up in northern new jersey for 23 years and am moving back next month (to the beach this time) after a five year stay in philly. i spent most of my teenage years hanging out in weird nj spots. i don't think many of them exist anymore.

Flame, where can I find the older ES and how much do they generally run for.
Ebay, various clothing forums also always have some in the B/S forums, etc.

ES isn't as well known as say, True Religion, and some stores do often have a nice amount of them for sale at the year's end.

Lysol:
First and foremost, thanks, at least someone gets the reference. The second thing is that I do understand that most of the cuts and the idea of most denim isn't for everyone. I like it because of the fact that it's a totally different idea of fashion. My mother doesn't like the idea of this, but I told her that I'd do my own laundry. Like I said its a different kind of fashion idea. I'll keep in mind the cut idea and take it into consideration when I'm looking for a pair.
