thanks redgrail - nope they're not raws, they're 21 cm black overdyed blue jeans. they did turn out a bit baggier than my other 21 cms, but apparently men.style.com in their Dior jean review cleared up that for Hedi's last season DH jeans became fuller cut...so i guess the dior silhouette isn't really there anymore, it's just a regular jean but i like the effect of the treatment... thanks jet - the texture is a very soft wool gabardine, perfect for spring (and i'm pretty sure summer as well since you're in LA where it's mostly mild). if i take 10 different pics of the pants it'll look different in every one because they flow around with the slightest movement...makes for a nice effect when you're walking, as if you were on the runway or something - not quite as feminine/flowy as silk, but as far as wool gab goes i've yet to see one softer to the touch. Yohji does a similar pant pretty much every spring/summer so if you were to get in touch with the Japan shop i'm sure you'd find something similar. hope this helps.
