wouldnt cuffing the leg (folding it up a little bit so that the outside of the denim doesnt touch the shoe) work the same?

what about wearing lightercolored tshirts with raw denim?
dou guys all just wear dark clothes when u wear raw denim?

A couple hot washes will stop the crocking if it bothers you that much. Blue bloodstains come with the territory, love it or leave it.

ok... you are right.

to stop it from bleeding onto tees, wear a belt. or, if your jeans are wet dont wear a light colored tee.

you can always wash them too...
