I love this thread. Now I don't have to create useless topics. Well, here's a few questions about dry/raw denim that I simply cannot find with google. I went jeans shopping today. I hit Gap first, since I heard the Morrison Jeans were on clearance. They were, and they had them in my size for only $15. Now, I know many of you guys think Gap sucks and I sometimes do too--but I do like they jeans occasionally, since I'm a guy that has a hard time going to a department store and just dropping $200 on jeans. These Morisson's, however, were REALLY dark, almost black looking, and they had the warning labels and everything. I picked them up since they were so cheap. I also picked up another pair that didn't have a name, but they for sure felt like raw denim and said they were "Authentic Japanese denim" and everything and warned about washing at all. So, does anyone have any experience with these Gap jeans? Are they actually raw, or just rinsed/washed once? Also, I put a piece of white paper under my butt as I was driving home today, just to see if the indigo would wear off. It did have a blue tinge to after I got up. So any general advice on having my jeans not be so contagious and infecting everything they touch with blue?
