    I've recently been getting back into shape and am now at the point where I'm needing new clothes. Knowing this would come, I planned on, finally, buying a pair of raw denim jeans for the first time around Christmas. Now that time has come, and I've also added a jacket to that dream.

    My main question is, where can I find a raw denim jacket that I can wear and distress with daily use? I want this to have just as much personality over time as my jeans will.

    It would be pretty awesome (and correct me if you think otherwise) to get them both from the same brand, so they will be similar in color and fade, but this is merely just a thought. I love (and who doesn't) the Levi's Type III, so I'd like to find one similar. Doing only a few quick searches around, I haven't found much to go off of; so I figured I'd turn to the experts.

    Jeans aren't my main concern, but feel free to add any recommendations. My mind is heading towards A.P.C. but may stray. I know there's a ton of information on jeans, as I've already explored that option for years.

    Thanks!

    For a raw denim jacket, hands down Filson's Levis collection oil tin cloth trucker jacket. Raw denim ages well with use, oil waxed denim ages even better! All Filson oil tin cloth comes with a can of wax. I used the filson wax to wax my raw Nudie Slim Jims, and they too are aging well.

    Hey, for raw denim jacket I am going to go with Nudie Conny jacket which is super awesome - go with the rigid version of it as the black coated won't age (bleed) as significant. As far as raw denim jeans goes, there are lotsa choices but coming from my experience so far Naked and famous denim is dope. Nudie jeans are also always in my list, as well as APC (my friend has it and it is crazy).
