    I'm looking for jeans that stay the same color as APC New Standards even after a few washes. So I am guessing that is a non-raw denim.. budget is $100-250.
    What are some brands you recommend?

    Thanks, but that is quite a long thread, do you remember any of the brands / styles he suggested?

    How much are you willing to pay for your (lack of) effort? I start the bidding at $500.

    Agree on not having to read that long thread.

    I just bought Levis slim straight jeans in dark wash for like $70 and they do the job well.

    I have had Sugar Cane, Samuri, APC, and Studio D'Artisian and found all of those to be too thick, too rough and "slubby", stretch too much, fade too much, bleed too much and be altogether too time consuming and fussy to wear. Plus, they all look identical at night, which is when I wear them anyway.

    newbies- I said, the last couple pages of that thread.

    Lack of effort does not endear oneself around here.

    Rigid is "raw looking"

    Try over in the SW&D quick questions thread.

    If I'm not mistaken, you DO want raw jeans. What you don't want are fast-fading jeans.

    Easy, buy raw denim and never wash them. Sheesh brah, this isn't Yahoo answers. Put some effort into your search...

    Japanese Levis has made some nano technology jeans that do not fade with washing on 2010. http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/smartplan/item/eu504-0058/ Here is one of the link, and I found some more jeans on Japanese Levis homepage.
    Notes on Quality : Japanese Levis>>Non-Japanese Asian Levis>>>>>>>US Levis.
