Yes, but not many people on here do so. No major posters that I can think of. Unless you tend to bike or skate in your delicate cashmere, I guess.

No, but everyonce in a while you get these funny threads from people who have KIND OF absorbed the raw-denim groupthink and start posting things like - "can I go in the rain with my jeans" and "what temperature should I wash them at" and so forth.

i think it results from :
1)people who bought "designer denim" for years and just got into the raw trend. (If I owned any diesels I probably would be paranoid of them falling apart)
2)jeans costing lots of money, and people not wanting to wreck them prematurely. Of course they don't realize how durable lots of these jeans are.

I'm sorry, that was uncalled-for.

LOL...wait...I use sandpaper on my BB's...oh! Ouch. Burned.

Doesn't it seem that women wear jeans for, like, two, three months then ditch 'em? I dunno, all my girl friends' outfits cycle through a totally new set of clothes every season.
