Regardless of whether you like jeans raw or pre-distressed, there are brands that take pride in their work and there are brands that just put out stuff to make money..

jeans are all a fuckn bourgeois fantasy anyway. whether you're wearing jeans from self edge or diesel don't play yourself.

The rest of you (with the excpetion of small-scale clothing operations run by a couple members here) are stuck saving pennies and starving yourself to buy and fit into the next pair of $500 raw japanese denim made by a autistic albino in a back alley in yokasushichickenballtown..how does that make you any different then the guy who buys $500 pre-distressed jeans with a horseshoe on the ass? People here salivating over highpriced 1920's repros, flimsy sheer tank tops and $1000 leather boots with names that start with gui(do) are the same type of person who buys bedazzled tiger t-shirts and jeans with more holes in them then fabric. Ya'll just do it over a different style of clothing, the difference being a lot of you are ignorant snobs about it.

This post in MURDEROUS... Good job. I love all my Diesel jeans BTW. Fits, washes, quality is all great for the price. Haven't been here that long but it does indeed seem like some of y'all are ridiculously pretentious little shits about your clothing.

Get your panties unbunched.

there are relevant facts here: namely that adriano was one of the key people to champion ring-ring denim and bring it back into production. Whatever jeans you wear, raw or distressed, he quite likely influenced them. He helped champion Evis, and had shares in the company, over 20 years ago. What kind of denim were you wearing then?

+1 to Mauro, Uncontrol, JohnH, TS, and anyone who promotes not being a douche on SF icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I get the whole pre-distressed thing, but 9 times out of 10 I think it will look better when the distressing occurs naturally from wear. It's kinda like prepackaged food versus homemade—the homemade stuff will take longer to prepare, but it will probably taste better. I do think AG uses nice fabrics though.
