    What's the best place to buy denim in NYC? I haven't bought new jeans in a year and I used to just go to Gap, J Crew, or BR. I now want to buy a nicer pair, most likely in raw denim that everyone raves about. I would also like a slim fit on the verge of skinny with a price tag of $150 or less. Any suggestions?

    Self Edge or Blue in Green, depending on which brands you want.

    Self Edge Blue in Green Seem to be the two obvious ones with more raw denim that you can shake a stick at. Edit: Zissou beats me to it....

    At $150 or less, APC store is an obvious choice, or SE for slightly costier 3sixteen or BiG for something on sale.

    Why do you need a thread for this?

    Not sure about the under $150 part, but try a place with APC or Naked and Famous (BiG carries N&F). If you can go over a little, self edge has 3sixteen jeans for about $175. I'm wearing the ST-210s right now and love them.

    For 150 or less, check out Epaulet's line. Blue in Green is always worth a visit though.

    Unfortunately out of your budget, but the Rag & Bone stores (Christopher St. location especially) are a lot of fun. The RB23 sounds like what you're looking for, but the raw selvage version is about $100 out of budget from your description. I would also check out Odin and Helmut Lang if they still have any men's jeans on sale. Most HL stuff is crappy quality these days, but I give the jeans an 8.5/10 for materials, construction and details. On sale they go as low as $80.

    PC Jeans are going to go up in price to $165 (maybe they already have)

    but that being said, Jean Shop is a cool store, as well as the RRL stores. For a selection, def. Blue in Green..
