    OK, I'm just ignorant. For some reason I thought raw = unsanforized. I might try Big John then. Do you start with size 29 or 30?

    So, sanforized means it won't shrink much (even if it's raw denim)?

    Cool! I'll hold my jeans purchase until I see your jeans' measurements. (I have trouble finding slim jeans that fit me with my fat calves and slim thighs.)

    GDL - You wear a shirt underneath your Inis. I dont. Otherwise, I'd need a size L :slayer:

    Raw denim (aka dry denim) just means denim that hasn't undergone any pre-washing, pre-distressing process (often done after the jeans are made)

    Sanforization is a finishing process that helps take out the shrinkage (typically done after the fabric has been woven)

    Selvedge denim means that the denim was woven with a self-edge, meaning the edge is "finished" with a band of fabric.

    You can have jeans made with a mix of any of the above (and more) options. Raw selvedge unsanforized jeans, pre-washed selvedge denim, raw selvedge sanforized, etc.

    I can read the Chinese characters but I'm not quite sure what they mean in this context. The first two seem to be the name of a place or a person, the last two I think have to do with denim ("blue saint"?). What are those words supposed to mean in Japanese?

    Sakamoto Ransei

    Sakamoto is one of the oldest denim mills in Japan.
    Ransei is that particular denim fabric which is 15.5 oz.

    These aren't the type of jeans where you want to stuff the pockets with loogi-loaded napkins. Especially if you are sharing those jeans with friends. One compadre from LHHS used to get very upset when his jeans were returned with that green residue. But that's neither here nor derr.

    Sorry - some unwarranted inside humor that probably didn't even hit :/
