I have a couple of Levis jeans which seems to last forever and I even bought a nice pair of raw denim at ZARA for 30 €uros a year ago that look pretty much like Slim Jim's and hold up pretty good. They fade beautifully, fit great, no crotch issues or whatever and they just look great.

Nudies are notorious for crotch blowouts; next time try a brand that doesn't slurp nutbutter.

I buy expensive denim because I live in jeans... if you wear something every day, why wouldn't you invest in something that's going to last longer and look better?

Because I like it.
I used to wear samurais and such but since the crotch kept blowing out and the cuts are a little odd, I've switched to rrl and apc. I like that raw denim is multi-purpose in that I can dress it up or down. I like the stiffness and the dark color.

RAW denim is like an artist's blank canvas... how you wear them [or wear them in] is an individual expression of oneself.

For me, it's more of a hobby. To people not in the hobby, spending that amount of money doesn't make sense (i.e. baseball cards, model airplanes, video games, denim, etc.)

I, like most people here, enjoy the break in period and the work left behind after so many uses.

I have this imagine of those gigantic plastic couch covers people use to save the furniture for when "company" comes over..

but, easy solution: Get a new car with black leather seats!

No such worries for my motorcycle. I do get oil on my legs, though. I really need to fix that valve cover gasket...

Errbody likes sick fadez, not to mention the majority of raw denim is tougher, as well as made and cut better than your average denim.

I wear them b/c the cool kids are doing it.

i like to walk around all day knowing that, no matter how sick my fadez are and how rare my denim is, bitches would still rather see me in true religions.

I like it for it's roughness, I walk around commando and if "it" gets to irritated I just pull the sheath down.

This thread is a mountain of unfunny and rape.
