Crotch blowouts and wear/tear happen with denim when they're not washed. Starch, dirt and filth are extremely abrasive and is what causes holes. I have about 15 pairs of raw denim and have soaked/washed virtually all of them.


Don't you know that back in the 1890s NOBODY ever washed their pants?


Ever


It was a filthy place


If I ever take up panhandling or working in a coal mine i'll let you know. I guess I have a hang up about festering in my own filth so that I can achieve epic fades

Is this an appropriate way to store raw unworn denim jeans? I have some pairs I wont be breaking in for a while and don't want creases or wrinkles imprinting into the fabric.

Not that I'm a no-wash fetishist, but I'm pretty sure "wear/tear" happens with both washed and unwashed denim. I've had dirt cause holes in my jeans, but usually when a bunch of dirt and rocks was suddenly thrust upon my jeans by gravity, like when I crashed a bike. I can attest that those pointy bits of wire at the top of a chain link fence can also cause holes in washed denim.

How do guys size Strider vs Stanton?

I'm 33 in Stanton (waist is too big though). I can also wear a 32 but it's quite snug although waist is still a bit big- 32 looks ok but is too constricted in the top block.

Here's a pic of my 32 Stantons:
