How would you compare them to something like a 501?
I like them a lot. They don't shrink or stretch much. Maybe shrink a half size if at all. I have the raw selvage "shuttle denim" and the rinsed dark "ring denim" and I HAD a pair of the raw dark hemp/cotton, but that pair was stolen. I've been wearing my selvage pair almost every day for weeks now and they seem to be indestructible. I have not been treating them gingerly. They (both pairs) still have yet to fray or nick or anything, and have been pretty slow to fade in. I've washed them probably 6-7x now. I will post pics when I get a chance. I'd say both are still stiffer than my APCs after comparable amounts of wear.

Yesterday I found a guy on superfuture who bought some of those cheap raw wranglers and they were already fading a little after a few weeks, but the monster rise was the big complaint.

Oh I read abot the the raw Rustlers/Wranglers but im a bit scared of the rise..The wranglers have a higher rise then the rustlers, right? Do they look bad after the first wash? Where can these be gotten? Any sort of k-mart or whatever?

I'm not sure about the rise. To be honest, I've noticed measurements for Wranglers/Rustlers in general are hard to come by, but I'm guessing they'll be in the 10-11" ballpark. Not sure about the wash, but you can get wranglers at wal-mart. If you're really picky or want a better idea of different cuts, wrangler.com has a list of local and online retailers.
