    i've never tried on a pair or even seen a pair in a store, but as just mentioned, a friend of mine has a pair of dry rustler jeans that actually look pretty damn good after about a year of wear. i don't know if the cut would fit everyone's style but they look great on him (oddly enough here's a photo of him in them but being in black and white you can't really get an idea of the fading, just the cut: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y95...t/DSCN1926.jpg0. they're a workwear jean and are made by wrangler and i think if you go to their website it'll point you to some places online to buy them. i don't know about the denim quality but the construction is likely to be far better than a pair of STFs or uniqlos as these are jeans that are made for digging ditches and framing houses.

    the thing i think you also have to realize weirdnjfan1 is that while you're looking for a pair of dry jeans because they're fun to wear and break in, being in an unwashed state shouldn't be the only determining factors in finding a pair of jeans that you will like. i would personally find a cut that you like first and then try to find something similiar in an unwashed or one wash state second. a pair of 501's is not going to fit like a pair of uniqlos is not going to fit like a pair of H&M dry is not going to fit like a pair of workjeans, etc. i've noticed a lot of people walking around in jeans that are not complimentary to their body (tall, chunky dudes in new standards for example) just because they wanted a pair of dry denim. good luck with your hunt!!

    great user name by the way. i grew up in northern new jersey for 23 years and am moving back next month (to the beach this time) after a five year stay in philly. i spent most of my teenage years hanging out in weird nj spots. i don't think many of them exist anymore.


    Lysol:
    First and foremost, thanks, at least someone gets the reference. The second thing is that I do understand that most of the cuts and the idea of most denim isn't for everyone. I like it because of the fact that it's a totally different idea of fashion. My mother doesn't like the idea of this, but I told her that I'd do my own laundry. Like I said its a different kind of fashion idea. I'll keep in mind the cut idea and take it into consideration when I'm looking for a pair.
