    You might want to head next door to Streetwear and Denim and poke around a little.

    It starts to have fascinating smells after a while.

    Also who doesn't want to look like a 1930's immigrant railroad worker?

    Umm, how about

    "why not?"

    or

    "I like it"

    Those are concise, and I assume the second would be accurate, no?

    think of carpaccio. But with blue jeans.

    For the op, tell them character has to be earned. Wearing pre-distressed clothes a like borrowing someone else's dreams.

    it is indigo-dyed denim sold untreated/unwashed.

    more so, talking about wearing raw denim as a fashion/style is also depends on the cut. they have to be slim/skinny.
