For those of you who've mentioned liking the Levis 514's: unlike the Dior x Eternals, the raw Levis 514's are quite real, and not at all mythical. And they're on sale cheap. I just got them in the "Rigid Scraped" wash from Macy's for $32.50. It's listed with all the other regular washes, but the jeans are actually from the Levi's Red line (so the stitching is a bit different from the regular 514s, even if the cut is the same). They're raw with a very few weirdly-placed, small permacreases that shouldn't really affect fading at all because they're just not going to get any action where they're placed. Denim and construction are just what you'd expect from Levi's Red--mediocre--but the price can't be beat if you're a fan of the fit. Which I very much am. I don't know how I'm going to fit these into my rotation, but I'm glad I bought a pair at any rate.
