I'm not sure though. Personally I think you have to invest money in your raw, since then you'll be investing your time as well.
I think it's a good brand, especially for the price, and you can easily get them cheaper than advertised because UO runs sales/coupons all the time. I have a pair and they're holding up really well. They aren't going to stretch out a million sizes, nor are they gonna shrink a whole lot. The denim is nice and thick, the stitching looks good, they fade fairly well, and in my experience, you can just order your true (vanity) size, so if you wear a 32 in most everything, you can get a 32 and not worry. The copper buttons and rivets also add a nice touch, as they should oxidize with wear, giving them a nice vintage look as the denim itself fades.
