I went into my local Gap to pick up a pair of raw denim to be used as beat-the-shit-of-them-without-a-care work jeans, but raw denim was not to be found. The clerks at the joint all got blank looks on their faces when I tried to explain raw denim versus washed denim. After 15 minutes, I left for fear that if I smacked myself on the forehead anymore, I'd leave a flat spot. The clerk at my Gap said "Salvage? Like, destroyed jeans?" I smiled, went home, and ordered online.
